About the neighbourhood
The area, because of so many national treasures, was recently declared a world heritage sight by UNESCO and has a mixture of older more conservative residents and more modern new comers living in their restored houses.

The area is loved by photographers and film makers so don't be surprised to come across film crews as you wander around. The street were you will stay was featured in the last Bond movie 'Sky fall'.
Car not needed
How to get there
Airport: Ataturk: 20.0 km
On the edge of the more busy tourist area stay in a authentic neighbourhood and immerse yourself in the local culture, yet still have easy access by foot, or a 10 minute ride on local transportation to Aya Sofia, The Blue Mosque, Topkapi palace, the Grand Bazaar, Beyoglu Taksim etc, and all of Istanbul's major attractions.
