Welcome Dear Guest,

My name is Seran, and I thank you for choosing us for your stay. Let me introduce you to our cozy, quiet and comfortable flats, located in a recently renovated historical building right in the heart of Taksim square.

Our building is located within walking distance to many attractions and shows day and night in Taksim area. Our street is the one parallel to the main avenue of the neighbourhood “Istiklal”, where you can find a variety of stores open 24/7.

On the opposite side of Taksim square, the street which leads down in front of our building will take you right into the old city boroughs with a lot of historic sightseeing opportunities and where you can visit the old Constantinople ruins in Cihangir, Cukurcuma and Galatasaray districts.

These neighbourhoods have always been a hit attraction for the locals, but recently a lot of foreign tourists have also started roaming the narrow streets of the historic Beyoglu district. There are boutique shops selling all sorts of merchandise which we highly recommend. There, you will find amazing items that has historic value for very affordable prices.

The Area: Taksim Central

Taksim Central is located in the European side of İstanbul. This landmark is worldwide famous for being a “meeting point” for all (locals and travellers), with historical buildings surrounding the square and following you wherever you go.

The main square is located in the Northern part of the Beyoglu district. Taksim and the surrounding area is well known; for its exclusive restaurants serving tastes of cuisines from all around the world, wine tasting cellars, delicious kebab shacks open until late, various tourist attractions, historical landmarks, museums belonging to different cultural heritages, art galleries, recreational parks as well as world renowned posh night clubs.

Taksim square has always been a popular leisure area for visitors from all around the world. It is the centre of Istanbul night-life as well as many other things. It is the absolute ideal place to stay during your vacation if this is your first time in Istanbul. The transportation is very easy to and from Taksim since it is situated right in the middle of the European side of the city.

It is close to all public transportation services with being the central station of the Metro network. Also, municipal bus service is in service 24/7 if you are on a budget and do not want to use taxi cabs. Overall, there is no better point to start your city tour other than Taksim square. There are a couple of options that offer “hop-on / hop-off” bus service city tours where you can either purchase ½ day or full days excursions of the city.

Our building is located near northern entrance of the famous Istiklal Avenue, known for its modern architecture and vibrant atmosphere. Taking a stroll on Istiklal Avenue at any time of the day, you will find a variety of restaurants, cafés, pubs, night clubs, brand stores and gift shops open. If you walk all the way down from Istiklal Avenue, you will reach the entrance of the old city, the Kabatas neighbourhood. In this part of the Beyoglu district, you can visit the churches and a couple of cathedrals built in the 17th century Byzantium occupation as well as the stunning view of the mosques surrounding the area followed with the fascinating “Spice Bazaar”.

If you choose to stay at our flats, you will also enjoy our terrace with its beautiful city-view on the famous Galata Tower and above the roofs of the European Istanbul.


In the same building we have 6 apartments: three studio flats and three 1+1 flats.

The studio flats consist of a living room, a sleeping corner, a kitchenette and a bathroom.

The 1+1 flats consist of a living room, a bedroom, a kitchenette and a bathroom.

Our apartments are comfortable, large and beautifully furnished. We chose all the furniture, cured every single detail and decorated the rooms by ourselves.

Our prices are always per room, not per person. All mentioned services are included in the price. We provide new clean towels and do a basic cleaning of the room every 4 days (without charging any cleaning fee). Additionally you can avail some extra services (which will NOT be included in the price) such as: breakfast to your room, washing machine, doorman...

I personally greet every guest, so at your arrival we will meet in our small boutique restaurant just under the apartments, on the earth floor. There, I will show you your flat and give you the key (you will have your own key so you can come and go as you wish). In addiction I will give you a map of the city and my personal ‘Istanbul card’: with this card you will get a 70% discount on all transports all around Istanbul. Please don’t forget to give it back to me at the end of our vacation.

Senan and Seran are very nice hosts, and we warmly recommend their place - and their restaurant: great food (try the Turkish pasta) and very friendly staff. The apartment is also amazingly quiet for this busy quarter.

Sena and Seran are the most gracious and helpful hosts you could wish for. Their staff is equally lovely and kind. They welcomed us with tea and a delicious breakfast at their cute boutique restaurant Cookpoint downstairs – check it out by all means! And they provided us with a city map and the Istanbul card for public transportation before we had even asked. The apartment itself was exactly as advertised here on airbnb – and it comes with fresh fruits and a selection of beverages for free! There’s a roof terrace you can use as well, with an interesting view of the Galata tower. The attention to detail is unparalleled, everything is beautifully decorated. The accomodation is cosy, clean and ideally located just around the corner from busy Taksim and famous İstiklal street. Yes, you can hear the sounds of the brimming nightlife in a distance on weekends, but it’s not that loud. The bathroom is tiny, but sufficient. And it has a little grid for a window, which is typical for historical buildings in Istanbul. Therefore it can get a little cold in there, but it shouldn’t be a problem – except in the midst of winter maybe or for someone who feels chilly veeery easily like me. ;-) We enjoyed our stay tremendously and would love to visit Sena’s and Seran’s place again some day! Highly recommended! Tesekkür ederiz, arkadaslar! Sandra & Thomas, Germany

A lakás fekvése jó. Közel van hozzá a bevásárló utca. Tudni kell hogy a környék nem a csendességéről híres, különösen a hétvégén. Ha valaki ezt el tudja fogadni akkor jól fogja érezni magát. A Taksim tér garancia a jó tömegközlekedésre. Érdemes kiprobálni.

Honestly, except for the great location, our experience was quite bad. First of all we never actually saw the flat we had booked as the staff had given it away to other people a few hours before our arrival. On the following day of our arrival we were moved to another flat on the fourth floor of the same building of the flat we had booked. The flat, even though seemingly nice at first was not at all kept well. The smell of sewer permeated throughout the flat during the whole of our stay (which was mainly due to the two water shortages we had and probably a poor water pipe system). The ceiling in the bathroom was also moldy. Another problem was with wifi: we had connection on the first night and that was it. The router stopped working on the second day of our stay and, despite several claims on our behalf, no effort was done to provide us a service we had payed for. Overall, I don't think I would choose this or any other of their flats again. They are a company that rents apartments acting as if they were a hotel, but they lack heavily in hospitality and taking care of their properties.

This was a kind of apart hotel. I guess the photos was made long back cause the condition of the apartment is not so good. It was not renovated for several years. The stuff wad nice and ready to help. Location is good.

Very disappointed with this accommodation. The accommodation was not clean, there was a strong smell of sewerage coming through the kitchen sink and the bathroom, as well as mould in the shower. We also had cockroaches in the kitchen. We did not meet Seran, who was apparently on holidays, and I'm not sure the names of the staff we did meet. Their English was not great. We weren't offered a map, or simple directions to the closest supermarket etc. not that we would have cooked in this apartment. It did not feel clean enough. we spent most of our first day in Istanbul trying to figure out their complicated public transport system, as there are limited places you can buy an Istanbulkart (needed for trams etc). Some local assistance would have been much appreciated. The young boy was very helpful with taking our bags up the 3 flights of steep stairs however. The location is very good, but I would not stay here again simply due to the state of the apartment. The restaurant downstairs was excellent. Great food, very cosy. I have stayed in several air Bnb apartments and love what they generally offer- bigger space, kitchen facilities, and less of a 'hotel type' experience. Usually you are able to meet great locals with great tips. Unfortunately this was not one of them.

Hello Dear Guest,

Me and my wife are İstanbul locals who enjoy the city life very much. Our purpose of renting out living spaces is to show the true Turkish hospitality to our guests we host at our suites.

We also have a boutique restaurant named "CookPoint" located on the ground floor of our building where we serve a variety of tastes of the Turkish cuisine. Especially, our breakfast dishes are quite popular among our customers. We highly recommend you to try our XXL breakfast if you want to taste all the essentials of an Ottoman style breakfast buffet.

We hope to accommodate you during your stay.

Best Regards,
