Moving to Istanbul and Finding Furnished Accommodation


Moving to Istanbul is a great decision to make and can be an incredible life experience. Once called Constantinople, this city is an important trade route on both land and sea. Due to its rich history and unique location the city has a combination of architecture from the Byzantine and Ottoman Empires alike, as well as modern architecture found only in this metropolis. Vibrant nightlife, fresh food markets and a culture rich in tradition. Sustained values are also part of this ancient town, filled with mystery and unbelievable legacy. There are many furnished apartments for rent in Istanbul and finding one can be done in a few simple steps. Istanbul is generally much cheaper than any other major European city. Istanbul's furnished apartments for rent long term usually have an advance deposit of two months, which you should factor in to your budget. Here are a few notes on the city's most popular regions, Trace and Anatolia …


Istanbul's European Side (Thrace)


The historic and magical landscape on the west of the Sea of Marmara has its own unique flair and deep history. Occupied by the Romans and the Ottomans in turn, Istanbul possesses mosques and churches side by side, giving this ancient city an inimitable multicultural flavor. The best example of this is the ‘Ayasofya’, built as an orthodox church, then later transformed into a mosque before finally being converted into a museum. Another example close by is the ‘Sultanahmet Mahallesi’ or 'Blue Mosque', which is widely considered one of the most beautiful mosques in the world. The ‘Galata’ tower in the district of Galata/Karaköy is a perfect place for breathtaking views of Istanbul. This is also where Istanbul’s red light district lies. Taksim, known as the tourist centre of Istanbul, offers the 'Taksim Gezi' Park and restaurants for expats and professionals. Reina and Supperclub in Beşiktaş are the perfect places for drinks and clubbing. Rent prices vary from district to district and can be very expensive. Apartments range from €400 to €1000 per month. Popular areas to live in for expats are Beyoğlu, which includes Taksim, and Beşiktaş.


Istanbul’s Asian Side (Anatolia)


While many of the attractions and most up-market areas are on the European side of the Bosphorus, Anatolia offers cheaper accommodation and has some wonderful neighborhoods of its own. It also has lovely landscapes and monuments to offer. Kadıköy, the more quiet and relaxing alternative in comparison to the districts of Thrace, is considered to be the signboard of Anatolia. It also home to the biggest food market in Turkey. The University of Marmara has the majority of its campus in this area. Whereas Thrace hosts the Football teams Galatasaray and Beşiktaş, Anatolia is home to Fenerbahçe in the quarter of the same name. Kadıköy is also home to a lot of students and international students. The district is very welcoming to all nationalities. There is lots to see and do in this district. It is a coastal district and has bars, cafes and shops along the promenade.Rent on the Asian side is also much cheaper than in Thrace, and you can find rental apartments for around €350 to €700 per month.


More Attractive Areas in Istanbul


Galata Tower


Galata, an area crowned by the 14th-century Galata Tower, is set on the side of a great hill and offers a breathtaking 360-degree panorama of the entire city. Many of the historical apartment buildings here are ornately decorated with wooden floorings and chandeliers, and this vibrant and artsy area is popular with young Turks and expats alike. If you’re looking for apartments for rent near the Galata Tower, you should expect to pay a little more than other areas of Istanbul. However, rooms here are generally spacious with high ceilings, while transport connections are fantastic and the city’s main nightlife areas of Tünel and İstiklal Caddesi are also close by.


Cihangir


Located just around the corner from Taksim Square, Cihangir is a hip and youthful neighbourhood that has become something of an expat haven, especially for newcomers to the city. However, it is also one of the priciest areas of Istanbul and has been compared to Hollywood in Los Angeles or SoHo in New York. Cihangir has attracted some of Istanbul’s most famous artists - from novelists to soap opera stars - and the ongoing gentrification of the area has seen rents increase substantially. However, affordable apartments for rent in Cihangir are still to be found, and if you’re really lucky you may be able to find a property that offers stunning views of the sea.


Old City


Also known as the “Historical Peninsula”, the Old City of Istanbul is home to the majority of the city’s ancient gems, most of which date from the opulent Byzantine and Ottoman periods. Stretching from Sultanahmet to Eminönü/Sirkeci, almost all the sites in this area are connected by tram, although it’s just as rewarding to explore the majestic Old City by foot. Simply put, this area cements Istanbul’s status as one of the greatest cities on Earth, and astonishingly it’s cheaper to rent here than it is to rent in a run-down suburb of London or Paris. For comprehensive listings of furnished apartments in the Old City, Istanbul, look no further than Nestpick.


Taksim


Taksim, an area in the Beyoğlu district centred around the indomitable Taksim Square, is famed for its shops, restaurants and hotels and is often considered to be the heart of modern Istanbul. Due to its popularity with the locals, Taksim is the best place to really immerse yourself in Turkish urban life, and many single people choose to live here due to its proximity to the city centre. The area also acts as Istanbul’s main transport hub and is the pivot that serves the rest of the sprawling intercontinental metropolis. There are plenty of affordable options when it comes to renting furnished apartments in Taksim, Istanbul, although it’s worth noting that the area can get incredibly noisy at times.


Sultanahmet


The small and historic area of Sultanahmet is so awash with awe-inspiring ancient architecture that you’d be forgiven for thinking you’d stepped back in time as you stroll through its quaint side streets. World-famous monuments such as the Blue Mosque, the Hagia Sophia and Topkapı Palace - among others - all make this neighbourhood overwhelmingly popular with tourists, whilst the area also offers spectacularly cinematic views across the Bosphorus into Asia. Although the area is generally expensive to rent in, there are plenty of options for apartments in Sultanahmet - varying in price, size and building type.


1 Bedroom Apartments in Istanbul


1 & 2 Bedroom


The average price for 1-bedroom apartments in Istanbul ranges from around 1,750TL (€442) in the city centre and other sought-after areas to around 950TL (€240) in the less expensive areas. The price of accommodation in Istanbul varies according to the type and quality of the apartment, its location, age, and whether or not it has parking facilities. Traffic congestion is a big problem in Istanbul, so be sure that you choose an apartment with good local public transport connections.


2 Bedrooms


For a 2-bedroom apartment in Istanbul, you can expect to pay anywhere between 1,850TL (€467) and 2,500TL(€631) in expensive areas and between 1,000TL (€252) and 1,900TL (€479) in cheaper districts. Most expats who move to Istanbul tend to settle on the European side of the Bosphorus, which is where many of the most desirable neighbourhoods are located. If you’re moving to Istanbul on a budget, it might be worth looking at apartments in the generally-cheaper Asian side of the city.


Istanbul Apartments with Air Conditioning


Istanbul enjoys a subtropical Mediterranean climate and can get very hot and humid during the summer months, with an average July temperature of 24°C (74°F). Most apartments in Istanbul come with air conditioning as standard.

It’s also worth keeping an eye on apartments with heating, as winters in Istanbul can be quite chilly - the average February temperature standing at 6°C (42°F). Likewise, most furnished apartments come equipped with heating, so if it doesn’t specify then you’re best off checking with the landlord.


Student Accommodation in Istanbul


If you want to study and live in Istanbul, you must look at what student housing is out there. Student housing in a non-western city is not too dissimilar from other European cities. Most students will be looking for cheap apartments in Istanbul. The average student spends 350-500 euros per month on student accommodation. Student houses are more expensive on the European Side than the Asian.


Student Housing Types in Istanbul


When looking at accommodation for students in Istanbul there are: shared house, student apartments, student residence halls and student rooms. Trying to make friends in this city should not be hard, especially with locals. Turkish people are known to be very welcoming, especially towards international students. You should be able to enjoy this beautiful city as a student. If you live in Istanbul in a shared house and have your proper furnished room, you will most likely get to know great like minded people. Similarly student residences involve living among fellow students.Those are wonderful Istanbul accommodations to make first year friendships and bonds. Both flat-shares and student dorms in Istanbul can be gender specific. If you prefer privacy, an option is to rent your own apartment or split the cost by sharing it with friends.
