The Marmara Sea region

Historic and modern, European and Asian — that's Istanbul. The city at the junction of two continents is home to ancient structures like the Hagia Sophia and the Blue Mosque in the Old City, as well as modern businesses, hotels, restaurants and nightlife in the New City. The sight of mosques and bustling bazaars and the smell of incense and spices are common in Istanbul. Across the Bosporus Strait, the Asian side of Istanbul offers a glimpse into everyday, residential life.

Istanbul is one of the most cosmopolitan cities in the world. While the majority of the population are Muslims, it's a mix of cultures and backgrounds fused together in one city. It has a mix of Jewish, Greek and Armenian populations. It is a city where one can truly experience Middle Eastern and Western cultures all at once. From fashionable boutiqes of Nisantasi to the merchants of the Covered Bazaar, this busy city is home to many people from very diverse backgrounds, with the commonality of it's rich history. Turkey's geography makes it a wonderful blend of peoples and places. Magnificent scenery along the Bosphorus has drawn people from the ancient world to the contemporary. Istanbul, comprising both the European and Asian sides of the Bosphorus is a stunning amalgam of sights and sounds. Thousands of years of history is combined with a vibrant, modern and exciting city unlike any other in the world. To fully experience Istanbul takes a lifetime, as there are so many corners, nooks and crannies that demand to be experienced. To visit only the mosques and Bazaar is to miss the essence of Istanbul. While an acient country and culture, the Turkish Republic is remarkable youthful, having been declared by Attaturk in 1922. Attaturk's drive for secular, modern country continues today in Turkey's aspiration to join the EU.

"superb apartment with excellent staff"

Pickup from airport was very helpful indeed. Friendly staff, helpful and knowlegeable, checked us in and offered tips for a good stay. Self catering but they also did good breakfast. Apartment was clean and suited us well. Comfy beds. Nearby restaurant very good. A great holiday.

"Ideal. Just what we wanted."

We wanted a relatively inexpensive fairly standard comfortable base for eleven nights for our family (mum, dad and two kids age 9 and 11) to explore Istanbul. The one bedroom apartment was great. The kids slept on a double sofa bed in the sitting room/kitchen. The kitchen was basic but perfectly adequate for cooking family meals on the evenings we didn't eat out. The apartment was very well maintained. Towels and sheets were changed regularly. Beds were made and the apartment was cleaned daily. The free wi-fi was very useful. (We didn't use the TV at all.)
The apartment is in a house converted into apartments for rental. We were on the top floor. The office (with friendly helpful staff) and cafe are on the ground floor. It felt very secure. It is in an ordinary street off the tourist track but only about 5-10 minutes stroll to the Hippodrome, so exploring on foot was very easy. There are plenty of local shops to buy standard provisions. There is a minaret with loudspeakers close by, however we became used to the early morning call to prayer by the second day.
I can't find anything negative to say about it. It was really just what we expected when we booked it. The free pick-up from the airport was also very welcome.
