The neighborhood and getting around
It is in a great location with easy access to subway or tram within 3-12 mins of walking distance. It takes just a few steps to the lovely street cafes, restaurants, bars, supermarkets, groceries and boutiques. Cihangir is the heart of Istanbul and it’s the architecturally beautiful “in” place for artists and expats. It has a combined soul of modern, historic and oriental Istanbul.
This Roa apartment is located in Istanbul’s trendy eat-shop-night life and has a very easy access to get to historical and famous places. Cihangir is surrounded with nice restaurants, coffee shops, stores, art galleries and cool visitors. Yet, the flat is in a very quiet street for a complete relaxation; clean and safe neighborhood.
The ROA is close to all touristic attractions in walking distance. You can get to all places in maximum 15-20 mins by foot + tram.
THE PANORAMIC VIEW
Early sunshine makes a mystique lighting on the historic peninsula accompanied with seagull voices. Cargo vessels are crossing the Bosphorus where fishing boats are getting ready to finish their nightlong work. During your breakfast at the balcony, the sea traffic increases with ferries and boats moving to various directions. Then, a mega cruise boat at the visible horizon appears, approaching to anchor to the port in front of your balcony.
Relaxing on the terrace with your favorite wine and music. During sunset, all the monuments and Asia shore dress a reddish cloth, the ferries and boats seem brighter on a darkened blue of the Bosphorus, sea traffic calms down and you watch a very relaxing sea view along with thousands of years old historic peninsula.
An amazing and romantic view where historical peninsula monuments are lightened and boats at the Bosphorus seem like candles on the water. Huge cargo vessels pass the Bosphorus with only a few lights like ghost ships. If lucky to witness the full moon… then just imagine…
Reviews By Our Guests
I cannot say enough good things about Safak. His communication, his care to detail. We arrived in Istanbul on the night of the failed coup takeover. When it all went down, Safak called and Instant messaged me throughout the night to make sure my family was ok. He provided me with updates and we all felt extremely safe knowing we had someone that cared about us. This is all in addition to the amazing apartment. The view is superb. It literally overlooks the whole Bousphorus. Its beautiful during the day and even more at night with all the lights. I highly recommend this apartment. There are also many cafe’s, restaurants and grocery stores very close. I have two children 7 and 4 so we were always walking to the store for something. The apartment itself had everything one would need from laundry detergent to full kitchen items
This is the perfect apartment (super clean, modern, great furniture) with amazing views (to die for) and a wonderful host (friendly, welcoming, and very responsive)! You can’t ask for more. If you want your dream Istanbul holiday, staying at this apartment is the best way to start. My only regret is that we didn’t stay longer!
ROA HEAVEN.. true to its name. We were received very well by safak . All out communications with him prior to our arrival were very prompt and replied clearly. He met us on arrival and explained us clearly on the map how to navigate our way in Istanbul . The place is very centrally located walking distance from istiklal street and taksim square. Tram station is about 5 min walking to go to all main attractions of the old city . What absolutely blew us away as we entered the apartment is the view of the bosphorous from the balcony . No picture does justice to what we experienced there. The rooms are spacious , comfortable and neatly kept. There is a personal touch in the apartment. Safak was very helpful as the host and allowed us a late check out. I would recommend anyone to rent this place… This would be the best decision . This apartment had a huge role to play in making our istanbul trip memorable.
This is a superb apartment in a chic and vibrant part of the city with an unraveled and truly unique view of the Golden Horn. It has a clean, modern feel with plenty of space and high spec kitchen and top end TV and music system. We spent hours on the large balcony watching the sun set enjoying a glass of wine. Safak couldn’t have been more helpful. He met us at the apartment and was always ready to help throughout our stay. He responded to all our messages very quickly and helped us store our bags on our last day as well as organising our transfer to the airport. Great host, great apartment, highly recommended!
Superior modern apartment with a truly unbelievable view of the Historic Peninsula and the Golden Horn. This place is a jewel, super clean and well located at charming, bohemian Cihangir. Şafak was an absolutely awesome host, he even gave us special gifts, met us at a bar at midnight to provide travel advice, and helped order delivery food and taxi at the door when we were busy!! Şafak’s apartment was my best Airbnb experience so far, and Istanbul was the most magical trip. Thank you so much and see you next time!
We cannot say enough about Safak and his place. As promised, he was waiting right outside for us to arrive even though our flight got in very very late. He had stocked the fridge with bottled water and had a map ready for us with loads of local suggestions. The pictures really don’t do the apartment justice. It’s absolutely beautiful in there with great sound equipment and a view of an ancient sky line which is tough to beat. The neighborhood is also so great. There were loads of really cool places to eat and drink. On our last night, we ran into Safak and his girlfriend at a club and ended up hanging out the whole evening. Overall this was my best airbnb experience yet. It really added something different and special to the whole trip. Thanks Safak!
This is a beautiful apartment in a great location. We are locals who live out in the burbs so we often rent a place to stay for the weekend and this has been the best so far. That view is spec-tac-u-lar. The apartment is in walking distance to the cool neighborhoods as well as public transport to get to different areas of the city. Loved it.
Best View Ever. Apartment was very clean, crisp & comfortable. We had many evenings sitting with a glass of wine enjoying the view. We would be sure to book again if our travels took us back to Istanbul. Host, Safak was very helpful & accommodating. We had a lovely time in the apartment & visiting Istanbul.
Safak was very helpful & easy to communicate with. The apartment was beautiful and perfectly located for all our needs. This was our third visit & we will be sure to come back to this lovely spot again. Rates a ten out of ten!
Appartement magique avec une vue inouïe. Safak est adorable . L’appartement est très très bien équipé hyper propre et très bien placé . Nous reviendrons rien que pour l’appartement .
House was amazing, great location, everything inside to very high standard – great kitchen set up, washer, dishwasher, really nicely done. Like living at home, we wanted for nothing. The balcony and views of Bosporus amazing. Safak had good communication, easy to meet and collect keys, was available if we needed him, and allowed for late check out
The house is amazing! The whole experience exceeded our expectations. The view is out of this world. Waking up to the view of bosphorus was just wonderful. Safak was very helpful and was in touch before our trip to answer any questions, he was kind enough to explain the way to the taxi driver from the airport. He waited for us to get to the house to hand over the keys and explained everything on the map. He was always available in case of any questions. The house looks even better than the pictures. Very clean and comfortable. All the amenities are there, whatever you can possibly think of. Cihangir is a really chic, hip, chilled out neighbourhood and we loved exploring its streets. The house is literally a 7-8 min walk from taksim square and is also close to all the other sites. Would definitely recommend this place to anyone visiting istanbul. Don’t think twice!! I would definitely return!! Thanks a lot safak! 🙂
This was an amazing location with fantastic accommodations and one of the best views in the area. The rooms were extremely comfortable and Safak did everything to ensure we were taken care of and had a comfortable stay. You can really tell that he goes the extra mile to make this location top notch. It’s walkable distance to all the main tourist areas and has supermarkets and neat shops/coffeehouses a short walk away. Highly recommended!
