Istanbul
Petraki Place I is on the first floor - one flight 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.

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 10 minutes walk up the hill.

The apartment opens into a welcoming hall with coat storage and the dining room and kitchen either side. The living room with flat-screen TV and comfy sofa is right next to the dining room, adding up to a versatile area for relaxing. The bay windows in the liv...

We are a family of 6, all of our children are below 13 so it was our first experience to book an apartment not a hotel for accommodation. As a mother of young children at first u was worried the vacation would turn into having to do house chores since we stayed there for 10 days. The overall experience was...

A first time trip to Istanbul and we were lucky enough to find ourselves in 1 Petraki Place. It's a lovely apartment in an old building bang next door to the Galata Tower in Taksim which is clearly one of the funkier parts of town. Clean as clean on the inside, the beds were super comfortable and showers had good...

About the neighbourhood
We understand the importance of location and this is why our apartments are in Galata.

Galata has a genuine, very welcoming and diverse community with an intriguing mix of cafes, restaurants, small grocery shops and artistic boutiques. Elegant 19th Century buildings line cobbled streets, with discoveries waiting around every corner. No matter where you wander, you’ll always find your way back to Galata Tower, which has been a well-loved landmark for the last 700 years.

Metro, bus, tram and ferry stops are all only a couple of minutes’ walk away. You can be in Sultanahmet (for the big sights of Ayasofya, Topkapı, Blue Mosque etc.) in about 12 minutes by public transport or 20 minutes on foot. In the other direction, by Metro, you can be in Şişli (for Istanbul’s biggest shopping mall)...
