Apartment | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 7
hendek apartment is located in an elegant 19th century building, freshly renovated, 100m away from the beautiful Galata Tower. The whole building was refurbished in late 2011.
Below the building are friendly electricians' shops (as well as cafes, restaurants, small grocery shops and artistic boutiques a few steps away) and you will quickly feel part of neighborhood life in all its character. The street is lively in the day but the shops close in late afternoon, so nights are quiet allowing for restful sleep. The building has a private entrance and stairwell (lovely original marble) with one apartment on each floor.
There are two good-sized double bedrooms (one with double bed and one with twin beds that can be put together). The kitchen is a practical size and well-equipped with gas hob, fridge freezer, dishwasher and washing machine. There's one full-size shower room and an additional small loo. The apartment is 95 m2 in total, light and bright with high ceilings throughout.
Many original architectural details have been retained and some of the walls have exposed bricks, giving a cosy atmosphere. The bedrooms comfortably accommodate four people and the large sofa-bed in the living room can manage two more if necessary.

The Marmara Sea region
We know how important location is and this is why we choose our apartments in Beyoglu – Galata area. Our apartments are in the most interesting part of Istanbul and only 1-4 minute walk away from the underground station, bus, tram and ferry stops.
For hundreds of years Galata was a Genoese Colony, in the sense of settlement. Today Galata is a bohemian district that attracts artists, writers and intellectuals although most of the inhabitants are ordinary people. It's a real Istanbul neighbourhood with real people!
A genuine, very welcoming and diverse community with an intriguing mix of cafes, restaurants, small grocery shops and artistic boutiques. Elegant 19th Century buildings line cobbled streets, with discoveries waiting around every corner. No matter where you wander, you'll always find your way back to Galata Tower, which has been a well-loved landmark for the last 700 years.
