“The Best Surprise Holiday Ever”
This was a surprise family reunion, bringing together my children and grandchildren to celebrate my birthday. The two apartments we rented were ideally located right beside the Galata Tower, well-serviced by public transport, close to local retsaurants and cafes, and within easy walking distance to the Golden Horn. The well-heated apartments were furnished in a tasteful and practical way, with washing machine, dishwasher, etc., and the beds were comfortable. We had three small children with us and we felt they were really welcome. We thoroughly enjoyed our first 'orientation tour' by Doygu, which helped us familiarise ouselves with the area. Our week was packed with fun activities, from visiting mosques to exploring markets, taking boat cruises, and sampling delicious cuisine.
“Istanbul family holiday”
Our family of four stayed in this gorgeous apartment for approximately two weeks. Its location is superb - a minute's walk to the Galata Tower, restaurants, tourist shops, and small (super)markets. The apartment is furnished and equipped to a very high standard. The beds and sofas are comfortable. The bathrooms are excellent. The apartment has a shared roof terrace offering superb views - you can see the "old city" and its mosques/palaces, as well as the Galata bridge and surrounds. The kitchen has all modern appliances to a high standard. Prior to arriving, all negotiations with owners were smooth and trouble-free. We were met at the airport on time and driven straight to the apartment and then met by an English-speaking representative who explained the apartment's facilities etc. I would not hesitate to stay here again.
“An awesome place, vibrant city and great food!”
It was our first time to Istanbul and we couldn't be more pleased with everything we experienced. The city and people are just beyond our imagination. We were greeted by a wonderful lady named Duygu. She went over the apartment with us and gave us tips to go around the city. The apartment was modern in a very old building. We loved the exposed brick wall, comfy beds, clean white sheets and fully furnished kitchen. Location is convenient to everything from grocery stores, restaurants, money changer, bakeries and most of all the famous tower in Istanbul, Galata tower. Fine restaurants as well as simple eaters are right around the tower and walking distance, serving exquisite turkish doners, lamacuns, chicken skewers & kebab. Fresh fruit juices extract (pomegranate, orange, carrot...), all natural nothing else added, can be had for 2-4 TL. From the apartment we walked thru the alleys downhill to a main street leading to Galata bridge where we crossed by foot to explore Spice Market and the Grand Bazaar. We felt absolutely safe walking the alleys. We also hopped on the tram "T1" at Galata bridge point and ventured further out to University place, Basilica Cistern, Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia. Attached to the 2 keys are 2 tram cards which we loaded up fares at the shop right by the bridge. Tram fares are 1.5TL using the card versus 3TL/trip if you purchase tokens. Thoughtful touch by Duygu/apt management to provide the tram cards! There's a terrace atop the apt offering a scenic view of the city, overlooking Galata bridge and spice market. great picture taking spot! Cats are common and appear to be gently fed and cared for by all the locals. At one restaurant, as we dined, a cat actually jumped on our lap like we're best friends and just stayed there to be cuddled. On check-out, Duygu/Azir offered to arrange for a larger taxi (mini-van like) to take us to the airport. Again that was a nice touch and much appreciated.
“A fantastic stay in a very cool place, stunning views!”
The apartment is beautiful, clean and stylish, with everything you could possibly need for a comfortable stay. We had a very warm welcome from Tarkan then Duygu gave us the low-down on how everything worked. The view from the roof terrace is absolutely spectacular, well worth the climb, better even than the view from the 360 Bar (especially if you take up your own supplies of wine, glasses and a bag of nuts!). The location is perfect, just a few metres from the Galata Tower in a narrow street filled with quirky fashion and jewellry shops, a great cafe, friendly kittens and even two budgies! All in all a perfect long weekend, thank you so much, we will be back!
“A fabulous apartment in a vibrant and fun area”
My wife and I had a very pleasant stay in Petraki! Place with our 2 year old son and my 80 year old mother - the apartment was a lovely, welcoming and relaxing place to come back to after visiting the many beautiful and interesting sights of Istanbul, and I'd definitely recommend it as a great place to stay for a group or family. The apartment is stylishly decorated, very well-equipped, and is located in a vibrant and fun area with local shopping, cafes and restaurants near the Galata Tower. The area has a real buzz to it, particularly at night when the tower is illuminated, and there's plenty to see and do in the evening. On arrival we were met at the airport for our pre-booked transfer and everything went smoothly from there, meeting the owner and their representative at the apartment who gave us a very friendly welcome and handover. We were made to feel at home right away. Walking across the river to Sultanhamet - the old part of town - took us only about 15 minutes (even with a 2yo and my ageing mother with us), so the apartment is very well suited to sight seeing, and it's also easy to catch the tram at the bottom of the hill which takes you to the main sightseeing district (Topkapi Palace, Hagia Sofia, Basilica Cisterns & Blue Mosque) within only a few stops. Be aware that the area around the apartment is quite hilly and may not be suitable for people with limited mobility. As we were advised by the owner on arrival, don't miss the view from the roof terrace - it's spectacular!
“A giant view”
We strongly recommend this appartment for everybody, who: - is looking for a giant view, atmosphere and acustic surrounding on the shared terrace - likes lovely and stylish equipped rooms - wants a stay in the center near a lot of cafés, restaurants and shops additionaly we enjoyed very much the gently welcome up to the service of airport-transfer
Great location close to the Galata Tower and in the middle of the European Part of Istanbul. Hear you can feel the Heartbeat of one of the capital cities of the world.The best to do, is to have a drink on top of the house. The terrace has a marvelous panoramic few which covers nearly whole Istanbul. The appartement ist perfect refurbished and you can feel how the generations before have lived. All needed amenities are close by. The organisation of beeing picked up from the airport and the transfer back to the airport was perfect.
“Very professional service and a wonderful apartment”
From when we were met at the airport, our whole experience with instanbul place was great. The apartment was beautifully presented and clean. Fabulous location and perfect on first floor. We had a slight problem getting locked out which was our own fault and they cheerfully came straight away to help. The children were very happy with the wifi. We were sorry we didn't have time for one of their walks. Next time.
We were very happy with the service provided by the owners of the apartment. The correspondence was quick and information accurate. Upon arrival we were welcomed by the host who gave us some valuable tips along with the very useful Istanbul transport cards. The apartment itself is very nice, clean, and cool. It contains all the things you might need during your stay and there is really nothing to complain about. As a special bonus you can spend time on the rooftop terrace which offers breathtaking views of Istanbul. The terrace itself is beneath the Galata tower. If you decide to take this apartment you will have a lot of fun in a very lively part of Istanbul.
“Frescos, fun and luxury!”
My friends and I stayed in the petraki apartment and during the recent political protests in Istanbul. We were completely reassured and looked after by our hosts. The apartment felt completely safe and was just gorgeous with original frescos, air con, and the best roof terrace I have ever had the pleasure of sitting on! Spending our breakfast times looking at the incredible views and watching the lights come out at night was a real highlight of our holiday. I'd also totally recommend the airport transfers which were easy and reasonable. Monika, our host and rep, was one of the sweetest people and gave us great recommendations for food and places to visit and generally made sure we were completely looked after. The only thing I would have changed would have been to have a double fold out sofa bed in the living room as we were 3 couples and I would have felt less guilty about sleeping in my room fit for a Sultan!! Thank you
