The Taksim Ultra VIP apartments lived up to their name and provided us with a great base for exploring the fascinating city of Istanbul
The apartment which we had hired for my father’s 80th birthday celebrations is located in Cihangir and has a steep hill to get to it from the seafront which was the only negative. However its incredibly close to transport – you just jump on the tram at Findikli and you’re straight over the Galata bridge and into the historic old town, the Bazzars and the mosques. Theres also a Taxi rank outside.
The apartment was incredibly clean, warm and well heated and gave 3 good sized double beds and a single bed out onto a balcony. 1 double was en suite, and there was a separate bathroom (with a shower with radio!) and a separate toilet. The ideal space though was the kitchen/living area – huge sofas, dining table and fully equipped kitchen, with huge windows opening up onto the quite quiet street (for a town) below . Apartment had wifi, and the owners were very quick with all responses to questions before and during visit. Highly recommended – made a great trip fantastic.
