Istanbul
Shah Place II is one of Istanbul Place Apartments' sensitive restoration projects. It's 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 c...

(Pro) Friendly & helpful staff; excellent location; quiet area yet very close to attraction; clean with major amenities; practical & comfy kitchen (Con) Water cuts off 4 hours daily; no broom or mop

Management response:

Thank you very much for your review. Water cuts were related to a big broken water pipe and they happened in a very big district affecting thousands of buildings for a couple of days. This was quite unusual , so when you come next time we're sure that you'll have water for whole of your stay. Warm regards...

This was my fourth stay at Istanbul Place Apartments in Galata, which more or less says it all! Galata is a historical, lively and slightly quirky place in which to stay. Finding somewhere nearby to enjoy a morning coffee or traditional breakfast - or an evening meal for that matter, is quite effortless! It is also a perfect base for...

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)...
