atmospheric and cosy with fabulous Bosphorous views from shared terrace
petraki!place is on the first floor (one flight of stairs) of an elegant 19th century building just a few steps away from beautiful Galata Tower. The cumba (bay window area) in the living room overlooks a cobbled street with small shops and cafes, where you can feel part of neighborhood life in all its character. A few floors up, on the roof-top, shared terraces have gorgeous views of the Bosphorus, Golden Horn and the Old City. Sishane metro station is 2 minutes walk away.
The apartment opens into a welcoming hall, with dining room and well-equipped kitchen either side. The living room with comfy sofa adjoins the dining room and makes a versatile area for relaxing. There are two good-sized double bedrooms, one with an en suite shower room plus small dressing/bedroom very suitable for a child or baby. The additional family bathroom is spacious with a large marble-tiled shower.
petraki!place is 120 m2 in total, with high ceilings throughout, several of which have intriguing original vaults and frescoes. Some of the walls have exposed brcks which, together with Anatolian textiles makes for a cosy atmosphere. petraki!place comfortably accommodates five to six people.
Boutique haven in incredible location
I would thoroughly recommend this apartment:
an incredible location in the heart of Beyoglu, next to Galata Tower, close to great restaurants, shops and bars popular with locals and walking distance to the more touristy Sultanahmet (although be prepared for the hills!);
extremely high specification and decor in the apartment itself – boutique-style design, very spacious, comfy beds, modern bathrooms;
access to roof terrace with breathtaking views over the Golden Horn and the city, perfect for watching the sunset as well as the flat itself, the customer service before and during (confirming the booking, acknowledging payment, offering advice, greet on arrival) was impeccable.
