Apartments (Flats) in Istanbul

A rental apartment or flat in Istanbul may be the best place for you to stay. Hotels are comfortable and convenient, but a flat or apartment allows you to make a “home away from home.”

Luckily, there are now several choices for those wanting a place of their own for several days, a week, two weeks or more. Here’s information about laundries to wash your clothes.

Cihangir Apartments

The Beyoğlu neighborhood called Cihangir, with Taksim Squareİstiklal Caddesi, the antiques shops of Çukurcuma, and even Orhan Pamuk‘s Museum of Innocence close by, has an ever-growing number of small apartment buildings offering short-term apartments/flats to visitors. More...

Sarı Konak Hotel

I really love the Sarı Konak Hotelin Sultanahmet…. Several of their accommodations are wonderful small apartments with beautiful decor and all the conveniences, from flat-screen TVs to fast Internet connections. More…

Suite Ness Taksim Hotel

Okay, it’s not in Taksim, but it’s close, and that’s good, not bad. It’s tucked away in an unlikely little cul-de-sac in Cihangir, just down the hill from İstiklal Caddesi, so it’s quiet! Cihangir is a great district for living in Istanbul, even for just a few days. More…

In the traditional neighborhood of Cibali on the Golden Horn, these small, modern, budget studio apartments are perfect for those who want to live among the locals, not the tourists. More…
