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…

ROA really amazing apartment! if I talk about the view or cleanliness or uniqe and comfortable furniture or safe Neighborhood . In the apartment there are all things that you need it . this is my first experience with airbnb and it was really beatiful . Thank you very much safak .
Epic views, central location, good amenities and a gracious host…we couldn’t ask for more from our stay in Istanbul. Safak was always available to answer questions and even arranged for airport transfers for us. Thank you from for your hospitality Safak.
The apartment was exactly how it looked on the website. Safak is a gentleman and is very friendly. Before reaching the apartment, he contacted me several times ensuring that I get there without any trouble. As soon as I arrived, he was there to welcome me. After a little briefing about the neighbourhood and the do’s and donts’ he handed over the keys of this fabulous apartment to me. The view is breathtaking and the apartment is very spacious. On my checkout day, my flight was at 8pm in the evening and I had to leave for the airport at 5pm. I told Safak about my situation and he very fluidly himself suggested that since he didn’t have any booking for that day, I could checkout at 5pm as per my convenience. I had a wonderful experience during my stay here and I highly recommend this place.
One of the beat experience that I had while staying at Safaks place. Extremely responsive person, be it ordering some food or getting a cab or to know the neighborhood ( due to language issues). His house is amazing and very well thought of all the small things which would be required by some one staying in. Very well decorated house and not to mention the stunning view from his balcony. Whenever next I come, I will definitely be staying at his house, others please do the same. To summarize, great house, great location, great accessibility to everything, stunning view and responsive and responsible host.
Safak was an excellent host. Before we arrived at his apartment he answered immediately any question we had and he waited for us when we arrived there. He gave us a good briefing about the apartment and the neighborhood and provided a list of good restaurants around. In addition, in the apartment we found many guides for Istanbul. The apartment itself was wonderful. Great panoramic view of the golden horn including Topkapi and the great mosques, very convenient and excellentl location. Highly recommended
We had a fantastic time at Safak’s apartment! The amazing view is just as pictured and the apartment is very clean and convenient. Cihangir is the perfect base to get around Istanbul and full of lovely cafes and restaurants. Lots of friendly cats around so an extra bonus for cat lovers! Safak went out of his way to make us feel welcome and made sure we had everything we needed. We will definitely come back to Istanbul and stay in this apartment again! Thanks Safak!
