Additional Location Information
Want to go to Hagia Sofia, Blue Mosque, Topkapi Palace or Grand Bazaar. Get a tram from Tophane after 5 minutes walk.
Would you like to shop? Walk to Galatasaray, Istiklal Street in 5 minutes and get everything you want.
You wanna try a glass of Raki? "Cicek Pasaji - Passage de Fleure", an old and very decorative gallery with full of drink houses, is in 5 minutes walk away. Or you may go to Nevizade Street after there. But take it slow, Raki; would make you dizzy. It is our strong and very delicious alcoholic beverage. It's better in a conversation.
Or you can take Galata area, near the Galata Tower. You may get there in 15 minutes by walking again. There are new shops and cafes await you there.
From Tophane to Karaköy, now there are new hip cafes and restaurants for chilling out and hanging out, just in 10 minutes walk distance.
What about our street? Officially it is Cezayir Street, also known French Street, honestly, you cannot find anything French, but lots of cafes and restaurants offers variety of courses from Turkish and international cuisine. Do we recommend any of them? No. The prices are very high, but it's not worth it. In the street there are singers playing guitar and sing popular Turkish and English songs in the evening. This ambiance attracts tourists and natives together and provide a great place to have entertainment and dining together.
Of course entertainment is not the only thing we have. History begins from our building and street. In Tophane, the old arsenal building, the Mosque of the Admiral Kilic Ali Pasha, Modern Art museum, IstanbulModern and the new art galleries are the some of attractive place you would like to interest.
By following the tram line you can get Galata Bridge, with a great view, some oriental and makes you feel you are in a fairy tale especially in the morning or near to the evening. There are fish restaurants under the bridge or near the ports also. BalikEkmek-FishInBread would be a good meal.
On the way to the bridge, there are several old churches, which are hundreds of years old.
After the bridge you get Eminonu. This journey takes 20 minutes maximum by walking. Or you can take tram of course. Eminonu is where the Spice Bazaar is. We call it Egyptian Bazaar.
You want more? You will have it.
Don't turn right, go left from Tophane.
After 2 tram stop you get Kabatas, where the ferries goes to Prince's Islands. Except winter, the islands offer an experience about living in another world in Istanbul, without kaos and crowd of cars. There are to type of ferries. Seabuses and open ferries. We recommend open ones, because you will have opportunities to feed the seagulls with simit. What is simit? It's a kind of bagel with sesame on it. Very crispy. And the best ones are being baked in next street to ours, Bogazkesen. For islands one day would be enough if you have few days in Istanbul.
From Kabatas you also may take bus to Sariyer, near the edge of Bosphorus. There are several old neighborhoods after and after on the coast with fish restaurants and cafes, and parks to chill out near the sea. Ortakoy, Bebek, Emirgan, Yenikoy, Sariyer. Without taking tram, you can walk to Kabatas in 15 minutes, maybe less, and get a bus to go the villages above. After Kabatas, it is Dolmabahce, where one of the latest Ottoman Palace is. Very decorative.
For the Bosphorus tour ask for our leaflet gives a daily tour with ferry and exploring the asian coast of Bosphorus.
Yes, you have all these with us.
