`Unique' spot in the heart of the old town of Istanbul: Semaphore house (80 m², 2 double bedrooms, 1 single sofa-bed, 2 lounges, a large kitchen, 1 bathroom, separated WC, 2 terraces). This very refined and bright house is nestled beneath the fortification walls at the shadow of the minaret of the Blue Mosque (Sultanahmet) and is closed by the Topkapi and the St Sophia (Ayasofya) Palaces, the Great Bazar, and the Basilica (Yerebatan Sarayi). With 2 terraces overlooking the gathering place between the Bosphorus and the Marmara Sea, this heaven is surrounded by gardens and is located in a preserved area in the historical part of Eminönü, at the border of Europe and Asia. WIFI connection, iPod Hi-Fi system (you can listen your own music!), and a phone are available. Trolley (Sultanahmet) and urban train (Cankurtaran) are only at a 5 minutes walking distance. You will also find the “river bus” (Eminönü) and the ferry of Yenikapi for Anatolia and the Prince islands (see property # 67876).
