Throughout its long history, Istanbul has stood as a symbol of greatness, a confluence of peoples, languages, religions and continents.

Beyoglu and Cihangir in particular is Istanbul's most trendy and multicultural neighbourhood. European professionals, local TV stars and a intellectuals live and work in the here. Taxim Square, Istiklal Street, Galata Tower and the Bosporus are all less than 10min walking distance. While the area offers plenty of restaurants and entertainment options, the property is located in a very quite street.
Public transportation's are also at a close reach from the apartment. The tram, a convenient, cheap and reliable way to get to historical sites, is at a short walking distance from the flat. The metro and buses are also within walking distance.

"A perfect flat, with a perfect location in a perfect city!"
It was definitely a great idea to pick this flat. Because we have a little kid, we spent more time in the flat then we would have spent normally. That's why, we were keen on having a nice location which would make us feel at home. Azure 1 was an excellent choice. It was very tastefully decorated and very clean. The kitchen was well equipped, obviously, the kind owners of the flat thought of many details which made our stay at Azure a very memorable one. Also the location of Azure is very central; vivid but still quiet at nights. It is close to everywhere, this is a very important aspect for a big city like istanbul. We also felt safe in the neighbourhood. We already decided to book this flat also for our next stay in istanbul.

"Great Place to Stay in Istanbul"
This apartment was a perfect place to stay while in Istanbul. It was just as pictured in the TripAdvisor site. The apartment was beautifully decorated and everything was very clean. The manager, Serdal, was extremely helpful and courteous. He even came to the apartment at 11 pm in the middle of a heavy rainstorm to help us with the TV! Everything was handled very professionally from the pick up at the airport until the time we left the apartment. The location of the apartment was a great area of Istanbul. Very close to Taksim Square, only a five minute walk. In the center of Cihangir, we could find everything we needed from little green grocers to very trendy sidewalk cafes. Can't wait to go back there again!

"A home from home experience in the perfect location to really feel the true pulse of Istanbul"
We were greeted like friends and made to feel welcome from the point of arrival. The apartment itself was clean, well equipped and an appreciated basket of fruit left for us was a really nice touch and made it felt like home immediately !
Our 'home' was located in the midst of the non-touristy side of Istanbul with a wonderful choice restaurants and bars nearby with an authentic flavour - a must try for breakfast is the Van Kahvalti Evi (the breakfast club) which our host reccommended to us! The appartment is a 10 mins walk(uphill) from the main shopping street Isiklal caddesi and 5 mins (downhill) from Istanbul Modern Art Museum and the tram stop Tophane which takes you in approx 10 mins and for only1 turkish lira to the Sultanahmet area to visit top tourist sites. A wonderful experience - strongly reccommended rather than an impersonal hotel stay - thanks to the Cast team ..... hope to see you again! Katie

"Pefect location to visit Istanbul"
Our host was waiting at the doorstep to welcome us at arrival. The flat was in perfect shape obviously the whole house has been newly renovated. We were thoroughly introduced to all the technical details ( including washing machine and dryer and central heating and Wifi). Beyoglu ist the part of istanbul to be. The historic part of Istanbul with the Topkapi, Hagia Sofia, is 10 to 15 turkish liras by cab and can easily be made by foot on a nice day. restaurants, supermarkets, bakery, bars and cafes are all within minutes walking distance. Atatürk Airport was 45 turkish liras by cab.

"Amazing Place and City"
I stayed here with my Girlfriend for a week. We were very surprised about the excelent service the CAST team gave us. The apartment was better than it was shown at the pictures. It was very clean, we had everything we needed, full equipped Kitchen, nice terrace, a beautiful marble Bathroom. The bedroom as well as the mattresses was unbelievable comfortable. Also the apartment was in a quite side street within an very interesting neighborhood. We were just 5 minutes away from Taksim place with the biggest shopping street I´ve sawn so far. It was very easy to get to public transportation also the Cafes, restaurants and bars just around the corner were amazing. Everybody was very friendly. Thanks again for Serdal and Kadir who made our stay comfortable and recommend us nice places to see. I´ll definitely come again and send family as well as friends.
We loved it and we can recommend this place and the CAST Team to everybody who wants to visit this magnificent town called Istanbul.
