LOCATION

The MANZARA Istanbul apartments are located in the bohemian centre of the city: Galata! The area made a terrific swift in the last 10 years. Once a sympathically but gone to rack area with workshops in the basements, Galata grew to a spot for the creative class – without loosing it’s genuine flair! When you wander through the streets you will meet the craftsmen drinking tea in front of their places and pass by young design shops. This highly creative mix between old times and new ideas characterizes the neighbourhood.

APARTMENTS

MANZARA is spread all over our neighbourhood. You can reach Galata Tower, the famous district’s landmark from 1348, from every apartment in less than 10 minutes. Following the concept of Albergo Diffuso, the innovative hospitality concept from Italy, the venues are decentralized. MANZARA Apartments are located in different buildings and are without exception one of a kind.

We picked the best views and cosiest streets for our apartments. By restoring sustainable, MANZARA is extending the space potential of typical Istanbulian apartments. The outcome is a synthesis of original elements with a contemporary architectural concept.

While our apartments are comfy and modern, the condition of some of the apartment building, do not always meet the European or American standards. Sometimes you have to climb up a shabby stairway to see the Bosporus at it’s best – this is Istanbul!

VIEW

MANZARA is Turkish for view and we have various. Istanbul is one of the most beautiful cities of this world: The view on the Bosporus or the Golden Horn is a precious here and it is wonderful to share that experience with our guests. This is why we love our job! If you want to have your private view check our Panorama Apartments. Also in other apartment categories you can find MANZARA places with stunning rooftop terraces or “bit of Bosporus” view – just take your time and delve among our portfolio.

BREAKFAST

We are not offering breakfast at the moment (be excited! we are planning our new cafe). But the reception staff can recommend their insiders’ tips for the perfect morning-yummy!

CLEANING AND MAINTENANCE

The standard booking is including the final cleaning. Sure, we can arrange an additional cleaning – Please let us know at the time of your booking, we charge this service apart from the booking rates (20 Euro).

All of our apartments have a heating system (for winter-wonder trips), most of them have a TV and sound system and some are equipped with aircondition or  washing machine/dishwasher (see in the apartment descriptions).
