    This is a wonderfully restored house on 4 floors in the historic neighbourhood of Balat. I very much doubt you will find a better home with such a good combination of modern amenities and old world charm, tastefully restored by Peter and Ozkan. Lovely furniture. Good wifi. Great books. Modern kitchen and bathrooms. Plus a roof terrace with a view to the Golden Horn where you can sit early or late to enjoy the vista. The house is set on a steep street between Balat (a mix of Bohemia and useful, everyday places to eat and shop) and Fatih (up the hill) which felt more conservative and Islamic. It's changing fast with houses being rebuilt and the roads repaired. You might call this gentrification or restoration. It felt safe and mixed as a place to live, which I liked, and coming from London it's incredibly cheap as an area. We were eating as a family of four for consistently less than fifteen pounds. And then you can indulge your sweet tooth endlessly...! So I'd very warmly recommend the house, the area and the city itself. If there is one downside it's the traffic getting from Balat to Eminonu and the main historic sites. They are building a Metro 10 minutes away but until then the bus often crawls into town or you jump in a taxi. But that's a small price to pay for a fabulous destination.
