Spacious and characterful with fabulous views from shared terrace
3 bedrooms, 1 bathroom
Petraki Place II is on the second floor – two flights of original marble stairs – of a grand and elegant 19th century building very near to Galata Tower. The building entrance is on a characterful cobbled street, packed with intriguing boutiques and cafés. A few floors up on the roof-top, a shared terrace has gorgeous views across Golden Horn to the Old City. You’re invited to take your drinks or meals up to the roof terrace any time you like, for a very special experience of the city.
It’s about 3 minutes walk to Sishane metro station, less than 5 minutes walk to Tünel funicular and a short downhill walk to connect with the tram for Sultanahmet. Famous Istiklal Avenue is less than 5 minutes walk up the hill.
The three bedrooms are stylish: two doubles and one twin, each with chic velvet headboards and high quality crisp white linens. The twin beds can be pushed together if preferred. The bedrooms are arranged around a large central hall with seating and coat storage. The comfortable living room is very spacious and light, with a newly-upholstered vintage sofa and chairs, feather cushions and antique pieces. A double doorway leads into a separate dining room with a large oval dining table and chairs. The kitchen is chic and well-equipped with high-end appliances including dish-washer. The smart shower room is large, with a long marble counter-top and roomy shower. Original dark wooden floorboards give a warm feel and all doors are elegant dark wood originals, adding lots of character. The ceilings are extremely high giving a relaxing sense of space.
This apartment is a very big 130 m2 in total, serene and restful with lovely high ceilings and a quiet, solid grace. The bedrooms comfortably accommodate six people and a seventh/child on a fold-out bed in the living room is possible.
Guests will have the complete privacy of the entire apartment. The roof terrace, shared with all apartments in the building, is available for your careful use at any time.
Wonderful family holiday in stylish, well-appointed apartment
We are a family of 5 including 3 ‘children’ aged 20, 17 and 15 – we had a wonderful 5-night stay in this beautiful apartment over New Year’s 2014. Fantastic location, really lovely space, everything you could need, the owners and their team could not have been more helpful and accommodating. Cannot say enough good things – and also the airport transfers were seamless and the food tour particularly excellent. Roof terrace provides amazing views – especially for watching New Year’s Eve fireworks – but is up a few flights of stairs, just as an fyi. Would definitely book this charming apartment again.
