Nice Blue Mosque apartment in Sultanhamet, Istanbul
This is a nice apartment for 3-4 people ideally located in the Sultanahmet district of Istanbul, Turkey. The three of us enjoyed our stay here as it was very conveniently located just off Sultanahmet Square where the Hagia Sophia and Blue Mosque are. There were many restaurants, connivence stores very nearby and the tram line is also very close. It was a short walk to the ferry docks near the Galleta bridge also for the start of Bosphorus cruise. There are a few things in the apartment that need updating, the furniture in the living room is comfortable but the sofa is upholstery is ripped and could use a new cover. The brochures and map provided were old and this is a simple thing that could be provided for renters. There is a day care facility located right next door that is very loud until midnight every night so don't plan to sleep until after the kids go inside. Communication with the apartment managers for access to the keys was done through Facebook messenger which I don't check regularly so regular email would have avoided a minor problem we encountered. Overall, I would recommend this apartment for tourists wanting to experience the sites of Istanbul. It was affordable and provided a nice home base for us during our short stay in this lovely city.
Great location.. with all amenities inside, however it requires an update..many thanks
Perfect spot for sightseeing
Great location, midway between Blue Mosque and Sophia Hagia. Police gathering point close by (for those interested in security). Owners made accommodation to meet us earlier in the day on short notice due to early arrival. Easy check in-check out. Clean, LOTS of towels (bring your own washcloths), but could have used some softener ;-); not enough bed sheets, though, appropriate for the double bed. Minor inconveniences for such a good location. Provided us with one gallon of store-bought water to start the week off. Good value for the money. Would definitely visit again.
Loved the appartment : convenient location (minutes from Aya Sofia, the Blue Mosque and Topkapi Palace). We were 4 people and it was just perfect. My parents loved the place and didn't wanna leave ;)
There are small convenient stores in the area.. but if walk 10 min up Peykhane street, you can find a supermarket called BIM (close to Cordial House) with almost everything. Marco was very helpful for the check-in, and called us 2 days after to check on us, and if we needed anything else. I will recommand this place to anyone ...
The process of booking online was very good.
An excellent choice
We found this apartment an excellent choice. It was so so central for all the sites in Sultanhamet and the view of the Blue Mosque was magic. It was really clean and beautifully furnished with some lovely old pieces of furniture. Very good qualily bed linen and bedding and loads and loads of good qualiy towels. The photos on the web site do not quite do it justice. Much nicer in reality. But as advised on web site there are some stairs to negotiate so not for the very frail. My husband is 71 and I am 65 and we had no difficulty whatever. Be sure to check where stair electriciy switches are on arrival .
Perfect Location for visit to Istanbul - you will LOVE being this close to the action!
We stayed in an apartment owned by Fernando and Laura last year in Barcelona and had a good experience, so renting with them in Istanbul was a given.
We spent a week in this apartment, 2 adults and 2 kids ages 10 and 11. The location is perfect, a short walk to the Blue Mosque and the center of Istanbul for tourists. The apartment has two bedrooms with two additional beds off the living room and a fold-out sofa. Lots of sleeping options. We had extra towels and bed linens, a washing machine and AIR CONDITIONING and ceiling fans.
The kitchen was small but well equipped (cooktop + microwave, no oven which was not a problem for us). The bathroom is small but functions well.
The apartment was clean and had bottled water chilled in the refrigerator when we arrived. Also you will find a nice selection of tour books about Istanbul and decent WiFi in the apartment.
There is a grocery store about a 10 minute walk from the apartment. The DIA is large (for this area of Istanbul) and there are fresh fruit and veggies sold from trucks in the streets nearby.
The Restaurant Lady Diana is right across the street - and will do takeout for dinner, or you can eat there. They had great food and very good prices.
If you are coming to Istanbul, do bring earplugs. This great location is close enough that the 4:27am call to prayer will wake you up!
Note that is is a SMALL street and unfamiliar to our cab driver - it is around the back of the Four Seasons. It took us a few minutes to find it after being dropped off. The parking lot to the left side of the Blue Mosque (between the Mosque and the Aya Sofya) might be a better dropping off point.
We had a wonderful visit to Istanbul -- and loved this apartment!
