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.
