We had a wonderful experience in the heart and soul of old Istanbul.
Your life will be the richer for the experience of staying in this beautiful Galata apartment. It is in a wonderful and central location and has been beautifully renovated (think snowy white linen, smart decor and dimmerlights). There is a great view of Galata Tower from the living room and a thriving and welcoming Turkish community at your doorstep. It is lovely living in the old quarter yet avoiding the bustle of tourists when you choose. Restaurants abound. The apartment is well serviced and the family will arrange transfers.Truly lovely!
