Full of character, with frescoes
2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom
Shah Place II is on the first floor – one flight of original marble stairs – of a grand and elegant 19th century building close to Galata Tower. The street below the apartment is atmospheric with small, trendy boutiques and cafe-restaurants, yet is quiet and residential at night. Galata’s pedestrianised area is just around the corner with its lively pavement cafes and restaurants plus all the buzz of this bohemian district.
The apartment building is only 2 minutes walk from Sishane metro station, 1 minute walk from Tünel funicular and a downhill walk to connect with the tram for Sultanahmet. Famous Istiklal Avenue is less than 5 minutes walk up the hill.
The bedrooms are stylish: one double and one twin, each with chic velvet headboards and high quality crisp white linens. The twin beds can be pushed together if preferred. There’s a good sized, well-equipped kitchen with high-end appliances including dish-washer. The bright and spacious dining room is in the centre of the apartment. In the comfortable living room there’s a large feather-cushioned sofa, armchair and a bar table with stools overlooking the interesting and authentic streets below. The shower room is a generous size with loo.
This apartment is 100m2 in total and well laid-out, with large windows, lovely high ceilings and some frescoes. The exposed floorboards and wooden panelled doors are all original, giving a homely yet stylish atmosphere. The bedrooms comfortably accommodate four people and a fifth/child on a fold-out bed in the living/dining room is possible.
Guests will have the complete privacy of the entire apartment. In the same building – 2 floors above, across the hall – we also offer Shah Place I apartment. The two apartments together are ideal for a large group.
Stylish, Quiet & Great location
Thanks for a fantastic stay! The apartment is stylish, quiet, well furnished with comfy beds and nice big shower! The location is great, particularly for foodies with great cafes and restaurants right outside. Only a short walk to everything – very close to the Galata Tower, across the river to all the tourist attractions and great shopping around the corner.
We also did the orientation walk organised by the apartment owners and had a fabulous time, finding out all the local hidden gems. The little cafe around the corner (Privato Cafe) is fantastic – wonderful food and great hospitality. We loved it and will be back.
