The Hideaways Club @ Istanbul Galata Apartment

Istanbul, named as the “World’s Hippest City” by the international fashion and design press, has become a popular holiday destination for the exclusive Members of The Hideaways Club due to its wealth of magnificent historic buildings and exciting flair and atmosphere. Galata Apartment in Istanbul is one of the latest finds of The City Collection. Perfectly located in the vibrant district Galata in the north of Istanbul designed to appeal to the discerning, busy lifestyles of The Hideaways Club Members. The City Collection is the perfect match for busy people who enjoy travel, have an international lifestyle and are time precious. It includes stylish Apartments in the most exciting metropolises around the world. 
The Apartment is a great starting point to explore the city with the Taksim Square and Istiklal Avenue, Istanbul’s prominent pedestrian street, just a few footsteps away. The city is considered to be the cultural and historical heart of Turkey; a transcontinental city bridging Europe and Asia with the Bosporus Strait flowing halfway through. In 2010, Istanbul was named the European Capital of Culture, a city where European and Asian culture blend together making Istanbul a fascinating city to spend time in.
  The property stands out with a stunning interior design with great attention to detail. Offering high-class comfort, the master bedroom upstairs is opening up to a lovely second balcony giving spectacular views over the Bosporus and the Golden Horn. The duplex Apartment comes with the best and latest audio-visual equipment ranging from Apple TV, Bose and iPod music system to an extensive music selection. From the spacious open plan living area on the ground floor Members of the Club have access to a fantastic terrace overlooking the captivating city of Istanbul. It is the perfect place to enjoy a nice dinner in the evening with the city lights or a good quality breakfast in the morning sun.
 To get an insight into the cultural heritage of Istanbul, one can go for a walk in the old city and explore historic sights such as the Hagia Sophia, a mosque famous for its massive dome. It is one of the most magnificent museums in the world where one can take a moment to linger and admire the fine Byzantine mosaics. One of the most famous monuments in both the Turkish and the Islamic worlds is the Blue mosque as well as The Topkapi Palace with its treasury and exotic buildings overlooking the Golden Horn. Both promise a truly memorable experience when visiting Istanbul. To explore the city from a different angle, how about taking a private ferry or a boat ride on the Bosporus River to travel between the European and Asian sides offering great views of the surrounding landscape? Worth visiting is definitely the Grand Bazaar, one of the world's largest covered markets spanning 58 streets; it is a perfect place to snap up some local ornaments or textiles to take home. For a truly unique experience, the historical “hamam”, a Turkish bath, is a great way of getting to know the Turkish culture.
Istanbul really comes alive at night to become a place full of energy, with the locals flocking to see the most amazing bars, restaurants and clubs in town. Nisantasi is the quarter of Istanbul known for many popular cafés, pubs, restaurants and night clubs to enjoy. The “360 Istanbul” restaurant is a real gem in the Beyoglu district on a 360 degrees rooftop providing spectacular views of the city and offering both traditional Turkish as well as International cuisine. The world-famous Italian restaurant “Papermoon” soon became one of the hottest spots of Istanbul combining sophisticated design, popularity, prestige and elegance all in one. It is the perfect place to enjoy top-quality service, exquisite dishes served with quality wine. Members of The Hideaways Club can rely on The Concierge team to make reservations at the most fashionable restaurants and book on-site activities.
