Our house is located in Besiktas, which can be called the most central district of Istanbul.
It is just in the middle of many attraction centers such as Taksim, Nisantasi, Levent and the historical Golden Horn. The ferry port within walking distance makes it the shortest way to go to the Asian side.

Left on 07/04/2013 for a stay in June 2013 | A FlipKey verified reviewerReviewed Jul 4, 2013Stayed Jun 2013
We had a great time at Niso's apartment, it was nive to have four good sized double bedrooms for the family to spread out. The location is close to Besiktas bus terminal with good connections towards Old Istanbul, the ferry ports and Ortakoy for Bosphorus cruises or nights out, so we did not need a car. You can easily catch a yellow taxi anywhere if you prefer. We enjoyed a few lazy Turkish coffees in the cafés on the road behind the apartment, and beers in the family friendly bars/cafés down by the waterfront. Nisos was a true gentleman and went out of his way to make our stay comfortable and introduce us to Istanbul, with advice on where to go and when. Thoroughly recommended.
