I spent two weeks in Marti Apartments (from August 5th to August 21st) and I am more than satisfied with my experience there. Sue and Yahia, who run the Apartments, are very sweet and extremely helpful. They gave us advice and recommended us places to visit that we wouldn't have thought of otherwise, and that were definitely worth the detour....

We stayed in Marti Apartments for the last leg of our honeymoon in July this year. From the start Sue was so helpful and her email communication was excellent. She kept us up to date with the current protests happening in Taksim (as the apartments are very close) so we felt very comfortable and safe travelling to Istanbul. She was...

Stayed for 4 Nights. Sue, the owner, was so helpful beforehand answering all my emails and helping us plan the next leg of our trip. Easy directions to follow for getting there.

This apartment was one of the highlights of our trip to Istanbul and provided a calm oasis in the busy city. We arrived late in the evening but Sue gave us detailed information on how to find the apartment from the station and how to check in. Once in the apartment, we found everything we needed, and I mean EVERTHING!...

Staying in Beyoglu

Neighbourhood Profile
Beyoglu
Istanbul’s most famous street, pedestrianized Istiklal Caddesi (Independence Avenue), throbs day and night and offers a fantastic array of architectural sights, shops, treats, and throngs upon teeming throngs of people. At the avenue’s northeastern end is expansive Taksim Square, thought by many to be the very heart of the city, with many of Turkey’s most renowned restaurants and some of Europe’s most happening nightlife in close proximity. In striking contrast, Beyoglu’s less trafficked areas – such as the affluent Cihangir and the antiques district of Cukurcuma – exude Old World charm and provide contemplative calm and splendid diversion via an assortment of cozy cafes, attractive boutiques, and quiet lanes.
