The studio studio is a special hideout in the heart of Istanbul.
The studio is designed in a very stylish way and accommodate comfortably 2 people and has a big comfy couch for those traveling with kids or their friends..
The bed is build on a special platform which is accessible by a ladder, but for those who are pass the age of climbing, you can also utilize the sofa that opens to a comfy double bed.
The apartment is very bright and has been renovated recently. It is located on the 1st floor of the building. Being very authentic it offers you all the comfort of a real home.
There is a fridge, an electric cooker, pots, pans, dishes, cutlery and glasses. The shower and toilet are small but do the job nonetheless.
For further information please feel free to contact me, I would be very happy to help you out!
The location is superb! The building is located in the historic neighborhood Tophane, on Boğazkesen Street. Many new art galleries, recently opened on this street, are home to an artistic event called “Tophane Artwalk”.
You will be able to walk to many of the places you will want to visit!
Very close to the tram stop which will take you to the old city (Sultanahmet) in 15 minutes. By climbing up Bogazkesen Street, you will arrive Çukurcuma-Cihangir area in 15 minutes, and from there Istiklal Street and Taksim Square would take 10 or 15 minutes on foot. The spot where the building is located is quiet and calm. Also note that you are 2 minutes away from the famous "nargile" cafes of Tophane!
If you turn right from the main building entrance, in 5 minutes you will find yourself at Karaköy, the city’s historic harbour district, hosting today Istanbul’s best cafe’s, bars and art galleries. If you turn left from the building, a 5 minute walk will lead you to Istiklal Avenue, Grande Rue de Péra, with a length of 1400 meters, unarguably Turkey’s longest walking street and the most popular since the 19th century. If you walk straight ahead of you for 1 minute, you will enter the neighborhood called Çukurcuma, the most bohemian area of Istanbul where the best vintage and antique shops are. If you walk towards the back of the building, you will come to what we call “Little Italy”, the area which, during the Ottoman period, used to be the center where diplomatic missions are located (The French Palace, the old French Court building, The Italian Palace, The Italian High School, The Spanish Church of Santa Maria Draperis, The Dutch Palace, The Russian Consulate), the little square from which little streets lead back to the Istiklal Avenue.
You will be able to walk almost everywhere.
But should you need to go further:
Tramway: The Tophane Station is at 2 minutes walking distance. After two stops you arrive to the Eminonu Station, where must see places such as the Spice Market, New Mosque, Tahtakale are located. After 5 stops from Tophane, Sultanahmet Stop is right where the main monuments of the historic peninsula are: Haghia Sofia, Topkapi Palace, Basilic Cistern etc… And 6 stops after Tophane Stop, the station called Çemberlitaş is at the bazaars district: this is where the Grand Bazaar is…
Boat (Vapur): This transport is Istanbul most important identity symbol, you must try it! If you walk for 15 minutes to the Karakoy boat pier, you can take the vapur and cross the Bosphorus to the other side, i.e. the Asian of Anatolian side of Istanbul. You can reach the most typical Asian side neighborhoods such as Kadikoy, Moda, Uskudar, and also the Prince Islands…
Sea Motor: When inner city maritime public transport belongs to a private company instead of the municipality, we call it “the motor”. Again if you take the tramway from Tophane, afer two stops you reach Eminonu Station. From there you can take the motor to take an Istanbul Bosphorus Tour.
Metro: Take the tramway from Tophane, two stops later it’s Kabataş Station (this is the opposite direction from Eminonu). From Kabataş you can take the funicular line up to Taksim and there take the metro towards Istanbul’s financial district Levent-Maslak and further to the Bosphorus’ Northern parts, where the historic neighborhood Sariyer is.
Taxi: It costs about 20-25 euros from the airport to Tophane neighborhood where our flat is located.
You will be in Istanbul’s hub! I'm eager to welcome you, “Hoşgeldiniz!”
I have also 2 more flats, please take look at them too.
