Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday apartment in Beyoglu - sahkulu!place II
2 bedrooms, 1 full bathroom, sleeps 5, located in Galata
sahkulu!place II is on the first floor of a grand 19th century building close to Galata Tower, with Tunel underground funicular only 2 minutes walk away. The street below the apartment is atmospheric with some small, trendy boutiques and cafes, yet is quiet and residential at night. Galata pedestrianised area is just around the corner with its lively restaurants and all the buzz of this bohemian district.
sahkulu!place II has a spacious entrance hall/dining area, a large living room with bar table overlooking the interesting street below and two comfortable bedrooms (one double, one twin). The kitchen is a practical size, well-equipped and there is a good-sized shower room with loo.
The apartment is 100m2 in total and well laid-out, with lots of original features and some wall and ceiling frescoes. sahkulu!place II comfortably accommodates five people.
In the same building (2 floors above, across the hall) we also offer another two bedroom apartment. The two apartments together are ideal for a large group.

Guestbook comments from the manager
Monika (part of the Istanbul Place team) greeted us and was most helpful with suggestions and ideas.
Apartment was on first floor, but our 81 year old mother coped well with gently spiraling staircase from entrance.
Lovely little cafes directly outside apartment, but not noisy and only open late at weekend. Easy walking access to Tunel (5 mins for shops), Taksim (10 mins), Galata Tower (5mins), Metro station (sishane 5 mins, Grand Bazaar 10 min walk (to Ortakoy)and 5 min tram journey). Tunel bars, cafes and restaurants lively at night. As ever (we have been to Istanbul many times) everyone is welcoming and food fantastic. If you want your breakfast with fantastic view, go to Galata Kanok Cafe and go to 3rd floor out on to terrace - a gem!
Summary - a lovely little hideaway but with easy access to vibrant world of sound, colour and taste
