Wonderful place to stay. Neighborhood is full of character -- some homes appear run down but it is comfortably safe to roam around in. Apt is first floor on small street with few cars --although the ones who pass do tend to speed at times....More

About the neighbourhood
Come and stay in Balat Fener for an authentic experience of Turkish life.
On the Shores of the Golden Horn, it's only a 5 minute walk down the hill to the water and original Byzantine walls.
In the heart of Istanbul's old districts and one of the 7 hills of the Old city, the area is changing as its ancient homes, churches, mosques and synagogues go through gentrification, guided by UNESCO and EU programs..
The right choice for the discerning traveller.
Getting around
Just two miles north along the Golden Horn from Eminönü – the side-by-side quarters of Fener and Balat. Century-old Ottoman houses lean against each other in a kaleidoscope of reds, blues and greens. And art galleries and design shops dot the area along the water.

Like the rest of Istanbul, Fener-Balat is changing. Unlike much of the rest of the city, though, the changes don't – yet – involve condominiums and shopping malls. Nor have rents skyrocketed as much as in other areas that have retained an Ottoman flavour. This is why the quarter has become a cool hangout and a recognised design district; last autumn, tours of the area were a main event at the Istanbul Design Biennial.
