The Old town

Galata and Beyoglu (Pera) are two of the oldest districts of
Istanbul . There are plenty of historical buildings, churches,
mosques, synagogues, and old embassy buildings in this
neighbourhood, a neighbourhood which has been associated with the
foreigners living in the city for many centuries. The Galata Tower,
Kilic Ali Pasha Mosque, Galata Mevlevihanesi (the lodge used by
Whirling Mevlevi Dervishes / Sufis) and the Tophane Cannon Foundry
are only a few that are not more than 5-10 minutes walk from the

From our apartment, one can also reach the Sultanahmet area (where
the Topkapi Palace, Hagia Sophia and the Blue Mosque are located) in
ca. 20 minutes using the new tram line from Karakoy, though some of
our guests prefer to wander to Sultanahmet via Karakoy, the Galata
Bridge and Eminönü where the Egyptian Spice Market is located.

The Dolmabahce Palace is another historical sight that one can reach
either on foot or by the tram from Tophane.

Downtown (Shopping & Entertainment)

15-20 minutes walk from Taksim Square, which can be considered the
heart of Istanbul, where the major culture & art centres, theatre

and stores...By staying in a building located in a residential
street of Beyoglu, you can easily join in the night life of Istanbul
whilst avoiding the noise and crowds.

minutes from Taksim square using the new metro line .
