Karakoy is an old neighborhood with the trendiest bars, cafes and restaurants. All of the space is converted from hardware stores, barbers and workshops only couple of years. A nice neighborhood both for day and night. When you leave the apartment, turn left, go until the end turn right up to the tower and turn left again. Walk all the way down to seaside and you reach Karakoy and also the trams crossing over the Galata Bridge for Eminonu (big mosque and spice bazaar), Sultanahmet and Cemberlitas (stop for Grand Bazaar)
