Istanbul, Turkey Back to Map

Step onto the Galata Apartment's spacious terrace and there's no mistaking where you are: there on the misty horizon stands the vast dome and sky-scraping minarets of the mighty Hagia Sophia. Directly below, the red rooftops of Galata reach down to the banks of the Bosphorus.

This beautiful apartment is spread over two floors, in the heart of Galata. The main terrace is directly off the double-height, open-plan living area, while upstairs the master bedroom benefits from a second terrace overlooking Galata.

Interiors are a mix of modern European and traditional Turkish influences. The artwork of blue and white mosaic tiles and gold dining chairs complement perfectly the ultra-modern glossy white kitchen units and the contemporary seating. Cushions covered in a Classical Ottoman print sit comfortably on the black leather sofa. The highlight of this light and spacious living area is undoubtedly the feature wall, papered in Piero Fornasetti's black and white cityscape of roofs, gilded domes and gardens. Very Istanbul.

The bedrooms are cool and modern with more traditional decorative accessories adding sense of place. Large windows and mirrored furniture give a feeling of light and space.

The Galata Apartment offers easy access to Istanbul's Old Town, but save time to explore the local area. Walk or take the nostalgic tram up Istiklal Avenue, a beautiful pedestrianised street lined with Ottoman-era buildings and crammed with boutiques, galleries, theatres and cafes. At the far end stands Galata Tower: make your way to the top for the best views of Istanbul.
