Manzara

Located in the heart of Istanbul, the apartments discovered by the architect couple Gabi Kern-Altindis and Erdogan Altindis, who then developed them into beautiful holiday homes, all offer spectacular views of this vibrant city at the boundary of the Orient and the Occident. Whether you’re looking for a spacious terrace or small window niches, with their modern and oriental details these apartments are the perfect starting point for exploring the city on the Bosporus.
Manzara is the Turkish word for the “view”. The hosts have expanded on this term to offer you an overall concept. In their SUPA salon – a large old apartment in the centre of Istanbul’s Pera district – they not only provide space for regular art exhibitions, readings, concerts, celebrations, workshops and meetings, but also share their ever expanding network of creatives, which they have built up over several years bouncing between Turkey and Germany. Here, you can always pick up on valuable insider tips that are guaranteed to make your stay on the Bosporus a very special experience.
The apartments are managed by the architects themselves and are all located in the immediate vicinity of the Galata Tower.

Man spürt die Seele vom Manzara bei allem: wie man am flughafen abgeholt wird und in der ästhetik ihrer apartments ebenso wie im willkommen an der rezeption oder in den gesprächen, wie sie sich beim frühstück mit ihnen ergaben. Es ist die mischung von leichtigkeit, professionalität und liebe zu dem was sie tun, die da durchscheint und die ich jedes mal wenn ich komme wieder finde. Das ist sehr kostbar!
