The space

Going back and forth between Turkey and Switzerland, we were renting our place to friends and friends of friends. Recently we’ve decided to open our place to guests from all over the world too…

The apartment is located on the top floor in the quiet, upper class, preserved neighbourhood Gumussuyu (Taxim district) in the very heart of the city.

Situated next to Sacre Coeur, the patriarchate building of the Syriac (Assyrian) Catholic community, the flat lets you to see a great city view on one side and the calm sea view on the other and remains very quiet and unharmed in between…

It is 5 minutes walk to Istiklal Avenue (Grande Rue de Péra or Independence Avenue) which is one of the most famous avenues in Istanbul. Istiklal Avenue is a 1.4 kilometers long pedestrian street which houses boutiques, music stores, bookstores, art galleries, cinemas, theathers, libraries, cafés, pubs, night clubs with live music, historical patisseries, chocolateries and restaurants. A grocery shop is just located next to the building.

The flat is 95 square meters and consists of 2 bedrooms (only one is open to use), one spacious living room with dining area, one kitchen and one bathroom (the bath tub is not new but functional). It is very comfortable for couples and up to 2 more persons can easily accommodate on the sofas in the living room.

The flat is equipped with free high speed wi-fi connection, cable tv & dvd player, 24/7 hot water, stove, dishwasher, electric boiler, refrigerator, washing machine, hair dryer, iron. The basic things like cleanser for dish washer and washing machine, towels, hair and body shampoos or tooth paste, olive oil, some basic ingredients to cook are ready to use and at your service. We will be able to help you in English, French and German.
We are pet friendly, smoker friendly and more important human friendly ;)
We don’t promise you fancy goods, we promise the luxury of feeling at home…

Very close to public transport:
→ 5 minutes walk to Taxim square where you can hop on a subway or a bus to go any quarter you like
→ 6 minutes walk (450 mt.) down to stairs to reach the sea side or hop on a tram to go to the historical peninsula. It takes 15 minutes to reach main historical highlights of Istanbul like Hagia Sophia, The Basilica Cistern, Blue Mosque, Topkapi Palace, Spice Market and Grand Bazaar. / The airport shuttles from both airports (Ataturk and Sabiha Gokcen) have Taxim square as destination point.

Had a fantastic stay in Ayse's place and enjoyed every minute of my experience of Istanbul. She was so kind to let me stay extra few hours after checkout as I had to stay in before my flight! Definitely recommend for those who like to stay in the heart of istanbul.

The apartment was nice. Had a little bit of glitch but nothing major. Ayse was very attentive. She accomodated us after another airbnb fell through...

Ayşe was very easy to communicate from before booking until after checkout. I did not have the pleasure of meeting Ayşe in person, but she arranged everything so that I could seamlessly collect the keys and even made a very nice gesture of leaving a bottle of water each for me…
