Further details indoors

Restoration of this building incorporated environmentally friendly construction materials and supported sustainable development practices. For example, the Plywood supporting the wood floors, emit no or very low formaldehyde into the air. Other materials include Rockwool insulation, glass tiles, Volatile Organic Compounds-free paint and wood stains. The furniture and cabinetry were made from solid wood from local sustainable sources. No MDF or OSB was used in this building. All William Morris designed wallpaper used in the building was printed on formaldehyde-free paper from managed sustainable European Forests. The printing was done with water-based inks and coatings and do not contain lead or any other heavy metals. The wallpaper is installed with wheat paste/cellulose paste. All the furniture in the building was designed to represent the arts and crafts movement using solid wood. The water heating and heating and air-conditioning system is controlled by a energy efficient central system, which is located outside the building. The building and the units are equipped with fire alarm and automatic fire sprinkler system. Additionally, building features were added to the building for earthquake retrofitting. The rooms are equipped with audio-video system to communicate with the main entry door. Please note that no shoes are allowed in the building. To preserve this 110 year old building's original staircase and the wood floors in the rooms we kindly request the guest to take their shoes off at the entry (either carry them to your room or place them in your unit's shoe cupboard which is provided at the main entry). This building is strictly NON-SMOKING. We regret that we cannot accommodate pets.

Location description from owner

The Istanbul region

Marmara Sea region has mild to hot summers and mild to cold winters. Perfect time to visit is fall and spring.

Istanbul

Istiklal Street (Grand Rue de Pera) arguably the most famous and vibrant street of Istanbul. We are located close to but not next to Istiklal Caddesi, so you can have a good night sleep.

“The most magical place to stay in the middle of Istanbul!”

Reviewed 26 Oct 2012

This is your place if your are looking for class, taste, comfort and someplace that feels like home. You are close to Taksim but out of the crazy of it, in one of the coolest neighborhoods in Istanbul. Amazing restaurants just around the corner and some of the best second hand stores within a 1/2 block. The cafe downstairs has the best coffee that we tasted in all of Istanbul and we tasted our fair share. I love in Afghanistan and am from Portland, OR. In Portland the coffee is some of the best in the world and this cafe serves that level of coffee. And to top it all off you will be taken personal care of by the owner. When you leave she will be family, the kind you like to visit.

“Lovely apartment, centrally located with a fantastic hostess.”

Reviewed 22 Oct 2012

I rented one of Dilek's fully equipped apartments with a colleague for a small work retreat. The apartment was tastefully decorated and quite comfortable. Dilek and her team were wonderfully pleasant and eager to help with all requests. The coffee shop downstairs was a nice place for a coffee, pastry and a change of scenery.
