the top two floors of an historical Turkish house
firuz!place is on the first and second floors (one – two flights of stairs) of a 19th century traditional Turkish house. The apartment has two good-sized bedrooms (one double, one twin) with a shower-room on the first floor. Bedrooms are separated by a hallway and arch with curtains for doors. A sweet brick staircase leads up to the open-plan living/dining space and spacious balcony above.
It’s 90 m2 in total and full of character. The location of firuz!place is excellent and interesting: Cihangir/Cukurcuma are ‘happening’ areas in Beyoglu, yet still very authentic.
A short wander in one direction will bring you to quiet streets of antique shops and in another to Istanbul Modern contemporary art gallery on the Bosphorus. Orhan Pamuk’s Museum Of Innocence is right opposite firuz!place and Istiklal is just up the hill.
firuz!place comfortably accommodates five people.
Feel like a local!
If you are looking for a very comfortable home from home in the heart of the trendiest part of the city – this apartment will suit you very well. It is only a very short walk up to the shopping, bars and restaurants and is also only a 10 minute walk from the efficient tram which takes you right into the heart of the historic part of the city.
You can also use the lightrail/tram connection to get you to and from the airport so you can save a lot on slow taxi connections.
The apartment is spacious and well equipped – with a lovely small balcony terrace looking out over the very ‘local’ narrow street. Sit and have some apple tea and Feel like a proper resident!
