Excellent place to stay.. Great location near Taksim. To go to the main tourist spots, take a taxi to kabatas and then hop on to the excellent tram system.
Near the residence , great bakeries and supermarkets . Would definitely go back ...
I stayed 4 month in Cheya residence Teshvikiye, its in Nisantasi; one of the best places in Istanbul. You are close to City's Mall and Abdi ipekçi caddesi: one of the most expensive streets in turkey, you can find there Top class brands.
The apartment is very well equipped, you feel like its your home.
The smallest room can accommodate up to 4 persons, but I was alone.
Room colors are pleasant; lighting and furniture very comfortable.
the staff is very friendly , if you ask for a fair favor, they are always here to help.
I will return back for sure.
We had to visit istanbul for medical reasons,4 week stay, looked at 4 or 5 places for long stay and all stunk except for the Cheya. We found it perfect, after moving in and buying groceries, was just like at home, Very relaxing, lovely decor and ejoyed the patio that we were lucky to get.
Only problem was the no smoking thing, and I smoke. Very relaxing and cheaper then a hotel, and staff were more then wonderiful.
Recommend to anyone for extended stay. Bakery and markets,within easy walk.
will stay there again if we have to return to istanbul
