This cool 100 square metres loft apartment in situated on the sixth floor of an old-style building in downtown Istanbul. From its light and airy interior you’ll catch sea glimpses of the Marmara and the Bosporus… It has two bedrooms – one self-contained leading off the kitchen and connecting to a bathroom. The second bedroom with two single beds is on an open mezzanine level – with its own bathroom and balcony access so it’s probably best suited to friends or able-bodied children.
The house is only one block from Istiklal Caddesi, in Beyoglu which means you are in the heart of the action as far as restaurants, bars and music goes. What the neighbourhood lacks in historical highlights, it compensates for in nightlife and entertainment options – drop into KronotRop for coffee and 360 bar for a swish apero. Çukurcuma, Taksim square and Galatasaray are mere minutes away. The Istanbul Modern art musuem is an easy stroll. For Sultanahmet, it’s a 30 minute walk – or catch public transport.
What We Love
The mix of historic setting and modernity where it counts, like the well-equipped kitchen… the sense of space, the clawfoot bathtub, the working fireplace… The panoramic views – you can be at home but feel on top of the world… A remarkable space to call your own while in Istanbul.
The loft is on the sixth floor and there’s no lift, so pack lightly and get ready to give your knees a work-out! Obviously, it’s not recommended if travelling with the non-mobile. Note, this is a busy entertainment district so if you are a sensitive sleeper pack some ear plugs – this is actually our advice regardless of where you stay in Istanbul, it’s not known for ‘peace and quiet’. Note there is currently a three-night minimum stay.
