눉The building is a bit old even has been renewed and has not elevator but don’t worry, the staff are helpful about luggage. The approaching street is a bit hilly but it is better to go via Hidayet st. not from Sel basi st. which is so hilly, The residence is located in same distance from them in Kaya hatun st..
The residence's comfort can be improved if some kitchenware such as teapot, sugar bowl, plastic slipper (not towel slipper) for bathroom, liquid soap, shoeshine machine could be added to the rooms facilities. BUT these are not important and I will stay there in future trips if the manager "Ates" remain. Thank you again for all thing.
눇Location is so great, not so far, just 15-20 minutes from Taksim square, a few bit hilly, but you can go by metro in couple of minutes from Taksim metro station( 1 station only and after that exit from Pangalti exit of Osmanbey station which is only 2 minutes far from Hidayet St. going to Kaya hatun St., Troya residense). If you have not many luggage, you can take the metro from Ataturk airport to Yenikapi and there change the line to M2 going toward Osmanbey station easily and economicly. You can sleep comfort, because the location is not crowded and noisy as Taksim and Istiklal.
Many corner shops, supermarkets, fast foods, cafes and … just in walking around distance open from 8 to 20. Main root station of several destinations of Istanbul bus lines is located just location (opposite of Harbiye military museum).
Manager of residence "Abdurrahman Ates" is a great one. If you have any type of Problem, just tell him, it will be solved in earliest time possible also he is an excellent Istanbul tourist guide, consulting about shopping, leisure, restaurant and what you may want.

Briefly if you aren't so sensitive you will feel you are at home.
