Bos & Old City views from this flat in Galata

This is my private apartment which I rent out to short term travelers in Istanbul. The reason I chose this particular apartment was because of the rooftop terrace on the floor above with its 180 degree of Istanbul's famous mosque-studded skyline, the Bosphorus with its ships from around the world, the Asian shoreline, and much more. There are also views of the Bopshorus and Topkapki Palace from the apartment and the balcony.

The apartment is sunny and bright with 1 enclosed bedroom, and a salon with 2 twin beds (views!) that can be made private with curtains to separate the beds from the rest of the salon.

There is a fully supplied kitchen, a ...Read more

Additional Location Information

Amazing historic Galata area, just 1/2 block from Galata Tower! The building is located slightly downhill from Galata Tower, one of the highest points in Istanbul so there is a lot to see.

The Culturist magazine says about the Galata area:
"Most people don't know this, but to get a true taste of the local culture: You have to leave the historical neighborhoods, which cater mostly to tourists. Get lost amidst the cobble-stoned streets of Tünel, GALATA, and Karaköy, which are local favorites. Although these neighborhoods are part of the Beyoğlu area, they are separate from the well-known tourist trail: Istiklal Street. In Tünel and Galata you can find the locals hanging out in small yet sincere cafes, or shopping at local boutiques where you can find the creations of Turkish designers."

What to do in this area:
So much I can not begin to describe. Suffice it to say that you are just minutes from many of the sites on foot or by taxi or tram, without being in the middle of the tourist zone. Galata Tower is one-half block away. The Galata Bridge is just down the hill. Istiklal Avenue is just up the hill (10 min walk), and all around area delightful streets, cafes, shops, bazaars...

Istanbul is a walking city and a car is not recommended. There IS parking nearby should you need it. Public transport, cheap taxis, ferries, and on foot is the way to really experience Istanbul.
