A greek Anatolian breeze surrounds the house with an oriented corner in the lounge and a colorful tissue.
The kitchen also opens to a beautiful garden with an ancient wall and the cushions in the lounge can turn easily into 3 comfortable beds.
“House Of MonoPolo” is located in the very heart of the old city where everything began for the ancient Istanbul city.
The house is a historical artifact, a wooden Ottoman Mansion.
i Designed and furnished the house dreaming a peaceful place and without doing any harm to the historical tissue.
The architecture that makes the house sunny has been helping me in the whole process.
i’ve collected most of the furniture carefully and with patience, almost one piece at a time, and when my friends started to contribute to the design with their talent and artworks it has become the design that i dreamed of.
the kitchen is very useful and fully capable with all its utilities like its cooktop oven, water heater, refrigerator and other subsidiaries.
Everything is always clean, and you’ll find all the necessary utilities to clean when you need it.
The house is ready to welcome you with all its beauty and necessary tools like fresh towels, hairdryer and an accessible fast internet.
Besides the double bed in the bedroom, there are smart arrangements and extra beds to receive our extra guests conveniently.
Full Access to the entire apartment.

i moved to Istanbul 2 years ago, and when i moved to here at first the place where I’m gonna stay has become a problem to me because of my multi-cultural life style, my work and my passion for history and art, my choices has already narrowed down itself.
finally i found myself in Suleymaniye at this particular gorgeous Mansion which i call it “House Of MonoPolo” happily living.
i settled down quickly and started to design the house from top to bottom, and with the help of my artist friends i’ve tried to reflect all my passion for cultural diversity in every apartment of the Mansion.
at some point i’ve started to place artworks all over the house, mostly collected by me personally and some of them are artworks and paintings of my artist friends, and when saw the results i loved the idea so much that i’ve decided to make the house a living art loop.
every piece of art has lots of stories to tell, but thats something i would like to talk about it on sight.
i have a production company called “MonoPolo” which was obviously the inspiration for the name of the house, its located in same Mansion at the Basement Floor, we produce documentaries for TV's but our work based on internet production and we are creating a marvelous YouTube Channel at the time.
i live at the first floor, and after i decided not to live alone and share the house with interesting people from all around the world to widen my gaze, i found Airbnb and here i am...
