Lodging in Istanbul: The House Apart

Since my first visit 7 years ago, I have dreamed of living in Istanbul. My friend Jessica will attest that I say this about every city I visit, but, in this case, I actually mean it. On my most recent sojourn in Istanbul in November, I stayed at The House Apart with some friends who were in town shooting a film. They had rented several apartments in Cihangir near Taksim and needed a place to call home for 5 weeks. The House Apart was the obvious choice. Comfortably furnished, yet elegant, these homey accommodations offer all of the concierge services one would expect of a hotel, but with the convenience and warmth of a private apartment.

Each apartment is fully furnished and equipped with a kitchen, cable TV, and free wireless internet. Visitor’s also receive a complimentary breakfast and a 15% discount on other meals and beverages at any House Cafe’ in the city. (The affiliated House Cafe’ restaurant opened in Nişantaşı in 2002 inside–you guessed it–a house. Since them, several other cafes have opened in the city’s trendiest neighborhoods. The House Apart is the newest addition to the rapidly expanding House empire). Apartments start at 80 euros per night.
