Overview

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday apartment in Beyoglu - hendek

2 bedrooms, 1 full bathroom, 1 half bathroom, sleeps 4-6

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 80 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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We rented this apartment in the middle of July 2013, for 10 days. We are a family of four, with two young kids and we always opt for an apartment with kitchen and laundry. This apartment suited us perfectly. One large bedroom with two separated beds for the kids and one smaller room with a large bed for us. The kitchen was well equipped for cooking simple meals and equipped with dishwasher and laundry.



The building is on a quiet street and we were also not bothered by the visitors above and below. The high ceilings and air conditioning units made kept us cool even in the hot July weather. The apartment was clean and all the facilities worked well. Excellent water pressure and endless hot water.



Only one block away we found numerous good restaurants, two supermarkets, a bakery, an excellent wine shop, a pharmacy. Everything is centered around the pleasant public square at the base of the Galata tower.



Our daily routine was to walk 10 minutes down to the Galata bridge and take tram of ferry to various attractions. A public transit card was conveniently attached to the apartment keys.



We had a few minor issues that were resolved within hours by the friendly apartment manager who spoke excellent English.



We highly recommend that you stay in this apartment the next time you visit Istanbul.

The Galata neighborhood is where to be in Istanbul, and apartment Hendik is dead center in the Galata. Easy walking to the. best sites, clean, and outstanding customer service. They have put together a great rental program.!

The leayout was perfect for four adults. Having a kitchen was important as we saved on cooking breakfast in as well as several dinners.

Perfect for our 8 day stay.

Excellent stay in Istanbul!

  • 5 of 5

We would heartily recommend this apartment and Mr. Fuat's very kind hospitality. He was wonderful about meeting us at the apartment and giving lots of advice. The apartment was in a terrific location less than 2 minutes from the Galata Tower. We can't recommend this place enough!

Fantastic apartment in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We were surprised by the high quality of the apartment. It had absolutely everything you could need for the stay. It was immaculate, clean and welcoming. The location is fantastic, so close to the Galata Tower, tunnel station and Shishane station so you can get around the entire city very easily. Many little supermarkets are very close and the local fruit and vegetable shops are great. The apartment was very secure and help was always a text message away. I could not recommend the apartment more highly. Thank you we loved our stay.

We understand the importance of location and this is why all of our apartments are in Galata. With its genuine, very welcoming community and intriguing mix of cafes, restaurants, small grocery shops and artistic boutiques, we think it’s the most interesting part of Istanbul. No matter where you wander, you will always find your way back to Galata Tower, which has been a well-loved landmark for the last 700 years.

Metro, bus, tram and ferry stops are all only a couple of minutes’ walk away. You can be in Sultanahmet (for the big sights of Ayasofya, Topkapı, Blue Mosque etc.) in about 15 minutes by public transport or 25 minutes on foot. In the other direction, by Metro, you can be in Şişli (for Istanbul’s biggest shopping mall) in 20 minutes or Levent (for Istanbul’s business district) in 25 minutes.
