Ottoman style courtyard with quality nargile. We patroned the first shop on the left. Attentive staff replace heat coals like clockwork. Best Turkish coffee we tried in Istanbul (rich, almost chocolatey). A cool, chill vibe with traditional Turkish charm.

When you enter in this cafe the first thing hitting you is the colours surrounding through the carpets, Iznik tiled small table, the cups. It has an authentic touch, we can feel the history of this building, it makes me feel like I'm jumping in...More

The place only offers about 5 things on the menu (written on the wall). The shisha is great. They constantly offer you tea or coffee, which are both very good and authentic. The prices are very low. I felt very relaxed and enjoyed my visit...More

Took me back in time. Stock standard good double apple shisha and turkish tea. Will go again. Everything is well priced. If you want a 5 star hotel feel don't come here. This is for the OG puffers and kick back lovers. Great rustic feel.

Very good shisha in historical place in Istanbul. The place is very crowdy but to smoke some shisha and drink Turkish Tea one of most authentic places to go in Istanbul.

Vibrant and full of colour an original Ottoman passage where coffee meets the nargile and turks hang around to paly tavla. A true taste of original Istanbul's colours and aromas. Very close to the grand bazar and away of its turistic decadance. A must see...More

Best kahve and sisha we've had in our 3 weeks in Turkey. It is also a popular chill out area for locals (and some hipster tourists) to sisha. (So it kinda feels like a gas chamber as well, esp if you do not smoke)

Nice historical place to see but it is not enough to say good things about here.Especially erenler tea&coffee house.Classical Turkish commercial irrationality, that is not important to protect and improve the standarts/quality. Maybe 3-4 years ago all the compliments were true about the shisha and...More

Grand Bazaar
Tourists, hawkers, and locals come together at the
Grand Bazaar to comb its labyrinthine passageways in
search of a bargain – be it a pair of brand name
jeans, a handcrafted silk rug, or a perfectly brewed
cup of tea. Outside the vast bazaar, worn, narrow
streets wind their way down from its lofty perch to
the southern shore of the Golden Horn, where the
evocatively aromatic Spice Bazaar beckons alongside
