The Space

Our "Kismet Apartments" are situated in Zeyrek, Unesco World Heritage site of Old City Istanbul, consists of architecture from Byzantine medieval ages dated back to 12th century. Our studio apartment can comfortably accommodate up to 6 people. The double bed (140x190) sleeping area is separated from the kitchen and living room area with a door and separated from a bunk bed with black out curtains. There is a three door wardrobe in this area. The living room area has a full kitchen with a dishwasher, 2 electrical burners, microwave and full size refrigerator together with all kitchen utensils. There is a small table and a sofa bed pulled out to be a double bed (130x190). The bathroom has a glass-enclosed shower, washing machine and is stocked with traditional white Turkish towels, toiletries and a hair dryer.

There is no elevator in the building.

The Neighborhood

Although you are in a quiet residential area, "Kadinlar Pazari" full of restaurants, cafes and authentic meat and spice market is only one block away. "At Pazari Meydani" Square only a few blocks away has small shops and cute coffee shops. History is just at your footsteps, walk to Zeyrekhane in literally 2 minutes to experience a great historic setting, breath-taking historic views and delicious traditional food for a breakfast or lunch. It is located in a part of what was once the Pantokrator Monastery, established by the Byzantine Emperor John II Komnenos and his queen in 1118. After the conquest of Istanbul, Zeyrekhane was converted into a Mosque and Madrasa. Do not miss the previously called Pontokrator Church now Molla Zeyrek Camii constructed as the center of the monastery!

We are just located in this historical area, that is blended with the current housing, street texture and lives of local people. Be ready to see anonymous graves next to the houses, ruins of fountains, and hammams strolling through the neighborhood.

World renowned Grand Bazaar, Hagia Sophia, Blue Mosque, Topkapi Palace are all in about 20-25 minutes walking distance.

Taksim Square and Istiklal Street famous for a long pedestrian walking area full of shops and restaurants and night life is 10 minutes by taxi or bus.

"Comfortable, convenient, clean!!"

Kismet Apt. Cosy Studio #1 was a great place for us to stay. We particularly enjoyed the local area: excellent restaurants, friendly people, safe and surrounded by history. Less than 30 minutes walk from the major tourist attractions such as the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sofia and the Grand Bazaar, the local area itself provided many interesting attractions: the local markets, the Aqueduct, Fatih Mosque and just old and historically significant buildings.
The apartment itself has about 20 steps to gain access and is small but it is very comfortable.
We were greeted by a very pleasant hostess who provided a package of food to see us through the first morning - we arrived about 9:30 pm. We hope to stay at the apartment again.
