Overview

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday apartment in Beyoğlu - petraki!place II

3 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, Sleeps 7

Petraki Place II is Istanbul Place Apartments' latest sensitive restoration project. It's on the second floor - two flights of original marble stairs - of a grand and elegant 19th century building very near to Galata Tower. The building entrance is on a characterful cobbled street, packed with intriguing boutiques and cafés. A few floors up on the roof-top, a shared terrace has gorgeous views across Golden Horn to the Old City.

It’s about 3 minutes walk to Sishane metro station, less than 5 minutes walk to Tünel funicular and a short downhill walk to connect with the tram for Sultanahmet. Famous Istiklal Avenue is less than 10 minutes walk up the hill.

The three bedrooms are stylish: two doubles and one twin, each with chic velvet headboards and high quality crisp white linens. The bedrooms are arranged around a large central hall with seating and coat storage. The comfortable living room is very spacious and light, with a newly-upholstered vintage sofa and chairs, feather cushions and antique pieces. A double doorway leads into a separate dining room with a large oval dining table and chairs. The kitchen is chic and well-equipped with high-end appliances including dish-washer. The smart shower room is large, with a long marble counter-top and roomy shower. Original dark wooden floorboards give a warm feel and all doors are elegant dark wood originals, adding lots of character. The ceilings are extremely high giving a relaxing sense of space.

This apartment is a very big 130 m2 in total, serene and restful with lovely high ceilings and a quiet, solid grace. The bedrooms comfortably accommodate six people and a seventh/child on a fold-out bed in the living room is possible.

Guest Access:

Guests will have the complete privacy of the entire apartment.

The roof terrace, shared with all apartments in the building, is available for your careful use at any time.

In the same building - 1 floor below, across the hall - we also offer Petraki Place I apartment.

The two apartments booked together are ideal for a large group of up to 12 people.

The Neighbourhood:

Galata has a genuine, very welcoming and diverse community with an intriguing mix of cafes, restaurants, small grocery shops and artistic boutiques. Elegant 19th Century buildings line cobbled streets, with discoveries waiting around every corner. No matter where you wander, you’ll always find your way back to Galata Tower, which has been a well-loved landmark for the last 700 years.

Getting Around:

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 12 minutes by public transport or 20 minutes on foot. In the other direction, by Metro, you can be in Şişli (for Istanbul’s biggest shopping mall) in 10 minutes or Levent (for Istanbul’s business district) in 15 minutes.

There are many taxi ranks around and some secure car parks too.

Interaction with Guests:

This is a small Turkish-British family project. Julia and Tarkan used to live in Istanbul then Singapore and are now balancing life between England and Istanbul. If we're in Istanbul during your stay we'd love to meet you.

Your questions and booking will be handled by us wherever we are. When you arrive in Istanbul Tarkan’s wonderful family and/or our friendly team will welcome you to your apartment, give you the keys and explain about practicalities and the neighbourhoods.

We’ll all help you as much as you need and we're only a phone call or email away.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We are a family of 5 including 3 'children' aged 20, 17 and 15 - we had a wonderful 5-night stay in this beautiful apartment over New Year's 2014. Fantastic location, really lovely space, everything you could need, the owners and their team could not have been more helpful and accommodating. Cannot say enough good things - and also the airport transfers were seamless and the food tour particularly excellent. Roof terrace provides amazing views - especially for watching New Year's Eve fireworks - but is up a few flights of stairs, just as an fyi. Would definitely book this charming apartment again.

Fabulous apartment, fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

Petraki ii is a very comfortable and well appointed apartment in a fabulous location next to Galata Tower and its buzzy square and only five minutes to Galata Bridge and Istiklal Street. All arrangements worked seamlessly and the introduction to "Offbeat Istanbul" lead to an interesting walk around Beyoglu and first rate restaurant recommendations. The view from the roof terrace encompasses both the Golden Horn and the Bosphorus and is well worth the trek up several flights of stairs! We would have no hesitation in recommending Istanbul Place and indeed hope to use them again in the future for another trip to this fabulous city.

We understand the importance of location and this is why nearly all of our apartments are in Galata!

Galata has a genuine, very welcoming and diverse community with an intriguing mix of cafes, restaurants, small grocery shops and artistic boutiques. Elegant 19th Century buildings line cobbled streets, with discoveries waiting around every corner.

No matter where you wander, you’ll always find your way back to Galata Tower, which has been a well-loved landmark for the last 700 years.
