The space


If you don't like places packed with busloads of international tourists that rush through visits without taking the time to live and feel the spirit of places and people, than you are welcome to our home for a unique experience. If you really want to see real Istanbul, beside the places that every tourist see and visit, our house and guidance is best for you. Our house is located in one of the most historical, and safe parts of Istanbul.
