You can take airport metro and get off at ''Şişhane'' station, shuttle buses from both airports in Istanbul (Ataturk and Sabiha Gokcen) or taxi.

Interaction with Guests

We offer our guests to discover Istanbul not as a tourist but as a local. So we try our best to be able to help them to see also less known interesting places except popular ones. That kind of tourism offers to experience real life of a city and that's exactly our goal.

The Neighborhood

The neighborhood is called Galata (Pera) and it has a historical background from Byzantine to Ottomans.
It is one of the safest neighborhoods of Istanbul and touristic attractions' center with many monuments includes.
The area came to be the base of European merchants, particularly from Genoa and Venice, in what was then known as Pera. Following the Fourth Crusade in 1204, and during the Latin Empire of Constantinople (1204), the Venetians were more prominent in Pera. The Dominican Church of St. Paul (1233), today known as the Arap Camii, is from this period. In 1273, Pera was given to the Republic of Genoa by the Byzantine Emperor Michael VIII Palaeologus in return for Genoa's support of the Empire after the Fourth Crusade and the sacking of Constantinople in 1204. Pera became a flourishing trade colony, ruled by a Podestà. The Genoese Palace (Palazzo del Comune) was built in 1314 by Montano de Marinis, the Podestà of Galata (Pera), and still remains today in ruins, near the Bankalar Caddesi (Banks Street) in Karaköy, along with its adjacent buildings and numerous Genoese houses from the early 1300s. In 1348 the Genoese built the famous Galata Tower, one of the most prominent landmarks of Istanbul. Pera (Galata) remained under Genoese control until May 29, 1453, when it was conquered by the Ottomans along with the rest of the city, after the Siege of Constantinople.

Wunderschöne Altbauwohnung mit VIEL Charme und Atmosphäre!!! Sehr geschmackvoll und einladend möbliert. Für Aug und Köroer ein Genuss. Einziger Verbesserungsvorschlag: Bei Buchung des Flughafentransfers wäre es sehr hilfreich gegen zusätzliche Bezahlung einen "Koffer-Schlepp-Dienst" anzubieten. Bin mit zwei älteren Freunden gereist, beide mit Rückenbeschwerden und vollen Koffern nach der vorgängigen Iranreise.
