Make a Self Catered Istanbul Apartment Your Home Away From Home

At the crossroads between two continents, Istanbul has been welcoming visitors for many centuries now. Any holidays in Istanbul will see east meet west, as traditional Asian and European cultures merge to become one in this unique and fascinating city. To experience all that this great Turkish metropolis has to offer, your best bet is to reserve accommodation in Istanbul that is close to the central areas and all of the everyday bustle of life.  

Things to Do on Holiday in Istanbul, Turkey

With a myriad mosques and impressive places of worship around the city, expect your draw to be dropping to the floor as you marvel at the spectacular architectural delights of the old Constantinople. Any holidays in Istanbul would not be complete without taking the time to explore the spice bazaars and colourful markets. Why not take a trip along The Bosphorus; enjoy the numerous exhibits and artefacts found at the Rahmi Koc Industrial Museum; and don’t forget all of the amazing restaurants scattered across the city that are able to provide you with a true taste of Turkey on your holidays in Istanbul. 

Places to Visit on Holiday in Istanbul, Turkey

To gain an even greater appreciation of Turkish history and culture, it is recommended that you take the 2 hour journey south-west to the city of Bursa; Turkey’s fourth largest city. Set a full day aside to vacate your accommodation in Istanbul as there is so much to cram in to your visit. One absolute must on your itinerary has to be The Great Mosque (Ulu Cami) which is one of the most impressive examples of architecture that you are ever likely to see. This amazing building dates as far back as the 14th century. You will literally be falling over museums in this city and some of the ones to keep your eyes open to include The Bursa Turkish Architecture Museum, The Islamic Works Museum and The Bursa City Museum. All of the family will love the Bursa Zoo and Botanical Gardens.

Weather in Istanbul, Turkey

On your holidays in Istanbul, you can expect to experience some generally good weather. Temperatures are never that extreme in this city, but summers really can become quite hot and humid; expect temperatures to reach well into the thirties degrees Celsius during July and August. Rainfall levels are around the 20 inches per year mark.

Travel to Istanbul, Turkey

The city of Istanbul is served by its own busy airport - Istanbul International Airport (IST). Conveniently, Istanbul accommodation should always be within a very short transfer time of the airport. There are a number of airlines that fly to this region, including Easyjet, Ryanair, British Airways and BMI. You will have a choice of several airports to depart from in the UK, with London Heathrow (LHR), Luton (LTN), Birmingham (BHX) and Manchester (MAN) being a small selection for you.

Tout etait tres propre et la deco et lambiance rendait cet endroit authentique autant que son emplacement. Dans un quartier ou la musique etait a lhonneur..a 3mn de taksim 5m de la tour de galata.. Les stations de metro pour se rendre dans les lieux touristiques distanbul étaient a 3mn.. Nous avons profité .. Notamment pour les transfert de laeroport.. Nous sommes ravis davoir passé ces 4 jours dans un endroit aussi original..

                                                          A Perfect Home Away from Home in Istanbul

                                                          5 of 5
                                                          We rented the three bedroom, two bathroom and patio apartment for thirteen days and it was perfect for our needs. The apartment was spacious, spotless, fully equipped and very comfortable. The patio was a wonderful place to look out over the city and the water and to enjoy morning coffee, have dinner together or just to watch the sun set as we listened to the call to prayers. The apartment is located beside the Sishane subway station and a 5 minute walk from the historic tram so getting around the city was easy. There was a small but well supplied grocery store across the street and several really excellent restaurants within 2-3 blocks of the apartment. The Galata Tower, Istiklal Avenue, the Pera Museum and many other interesting places were just an easy 5-10 minute walk. Ibrahim and the others on duty at the front desk arranged tours, called taxis, gave directions and information and welcomed us home each time we returned to our apartment. Our family members arrived and departed on different days so we made good use of the airport transport service-even at 4 AM! Cevdet Aysay, the owner, arranged for our granddaughter, an exchange student at Bogazici University, to have access to the apartment early so she could wait for us there. He and his staff made our entire visit a pleasure. I highly recommend this lovely home away from home to anyone considering a visit to Istanbul. We loved our trip and hope to return in the future.

                                                          Located in a small street next to the Galata Tower, the appartment is ideally situated to discover the classics of Istanbul: 5 to 10 min walking to the Metro at the Galata bridge which brings you to Topkapi, Blue Mosq, Saint Sofia and Bazar. 10 min walking from Istatkli street and the Beyoglu nightlife. Taxis are available at the Galata Tower. Plenty of small breakfast places close by. The appartment itself is perfect! Reception upon arrival was perfect! Fruits had been provided! The flat is located in an old building on a quiet street that is dotted with trendy boutiques and eclectic restaurants. Its well maintained and nicely furnished. Thanks again we will hopefully stay again. A perfect place to discover Istanbul when you are with family or friends.
