Refurbished in 2012, this attractive residence consists of modernly furnished studios and apartments located in the heart of Istanbul, just a couple of minutes' walk from the lively Istiklal Avenue. The area is full of popular bars, cafes, restaurants and shops. A tramline runs from the Istiklal Avenue to the Taksim Square, 850 m away where there is an underground station and bus station. The Galata Tower dating from Medieval times is a 10-minute walk and offers superb panoramic views from its summit. A few hundred metres from the tower is Galata Bridge which crosses the Golden Horn to Sultanahmet.
