Come to Istanbul and feel like home where East meets West!
Located in one of Istanbul’s most central neighbourhoods, I offer a sunny room with a very comfortable double bed and shared bathroom. Besiktas is a quiet family neighbourhood and ideal for an individual, or a couple exploring Istanbul, visiting friends, or business travel. The flat is close to wonderful restaurants, markets, shopping, and public transport.
The flat is composed of two bedrooms; one of them is occupied by me, and a living room, kitchen and a bathroom. It includes all basic things that you might need while accommodating: 24 hours hot water, heating system, WIFI, smart HD tv, cable tv, washing machine, dishwasher, fridge, etc.
You will have your own set of keys to come and go as you please. You can enter or exit at the desired time.
In this newly furnished and cozy flat you will relax after a day of sightseeing in the spacious living. The flat has a limited sea view.
The room is comfortable for two; in this bedroom you will find a comfortable double bed and a wardrobe. Clean towels and linens are provided. If needed, an extra double sofa bed can be supplementary in the living room, thanks to IKEA. So bookings up to 4 guests with additional charge will be also welcome.
Beside the guest room there will also be access for the common areas such as living room, kitchen, bathroom and balcony whenever you want.
The bathroom offers everything you may need during your stay: a shower, a washing machine, a hairdryer, etc. You will also have shampoo, shower gel, toothpaste, etc. so you don't need heavy bags, just enjoy your stay & feel like home!
For those who love cooking, the kitchen has all basic utensils with a fridge, a microwave and a dish washer. Feel free to use the spices and basic cooking supplies. You can store your food in the kitchen and fridge. Let me know if you need more space. Please don’t consume other food/drinks without permission. If you do, please replace with the same.
In the kitchen there is also a coffee maker, moka pot and water boiler so coffee and tea are always available.
Interaction with Guests
I like to welcome guests on arrival, if possible. I check in with you during your stay via email or text message, but you can always call me or email for any reason. Easy self check out, just leave the key on the desk. I do work quite a lot, but I will be trying to be available as much as possible for any questions about what to do in Istanbul. I
Besiktas is near to Taksim, Kabatas, Levent and Nisantasi.
Just everything is nearby and in walking distance. Bars, restaurants, supermarkets, lots of nice and creative shops, and so much more…
You can walk or take a bus to Kabatas tram which will take you to Sultanahmet area with all the historical sights.
Ortakoy is also in walking distance, so you can enjoy breathtaking Bosphorus views in just 10 minutes.
Taksim and Nisantasi are 10 minutes away by Dolmus if you are into night life, shopping etc.
The apartment is also very close to the ferry which takes you to the Asian side or Prince Islands.
If you like running or just wandering, Yildiz Park just near home. Yildiz Park is a historical, urban park in Besiktas and one of the largest public parks in Istanbul. Park grounds offer panoramic views of the Bosphorus. The park is a popular picnic place especially for the weekends.
There are markets on the street and open till 12 at night.
Street parking is not a problem during the day, however it can be a little challenging after 6.00p.m. Guests can find a parking space within a block at night.
Other Things to Note
The flat is located at the top of a steep street so climbing the ramp by walk might be tiring.
