Balat is another of the Istanbul quarters in which Jews were settled after their expulsion from Spain, enlarging a community which had lived here since Byzantine times.
Today Balat is a working-class district on the shores of the Golden Horn. Though it once had as many as nineteen synagogues, only two of importance remain, the famous Ahrida, and the neighboring Yanbol. The site of a Jewish school is close by, and Or Ahayim Jewish Hospital is several hundred meters to the northwest, within walking distance. Remember to make arrangements in advance with the Chief Rabbinate to visit these sites.
Also in this district are the cast-iron Bulgarian Orthodox church of St. Stephen of the Bulgars, the Kariye Museum (Chora Church with Byzantine mosaics), the massive city walls, and the ruins of the Byzantinepalace known as Tekfur Saray.
Balat is on the southern shore of the Golden Horn, between the Atatürk and Fatih bridges.
If you plan to visit the Kariye Museum with its 14th-century Byzantine mosaics, and the nearby Tekfur SarayByzantine palace, you may want to visit these places first, then walk one kilometer downhill to the Ahrida and Yanbol synagogues.
Here are walking directions: facing the front door of the Kariye Museum, go to your left around the building onKariye Türbesi Sokak and downhill to Sultan Çesme Caddesi, where you turn left. Follow Sultan Çesme Caddesi downhill; it changes names to become Kürkçü Çesmesi Sokak, and continues to the base of the slope, where it becomes Vodina Caddesi. Just past the intersection with Haci Isa Mektebi Sokak, on the right (south) side of Vodina Caddesi, is the Ahrida Synagogue.
To go directly to the Ahrida and Yanbol synagogues, take a bus or taxi to Balat. The street on the southern shore of the Golden Horn bears several names as it meanders along; in Balat it is named Mürsel Pasa Caddesi. Take a bus or taxi along Mürsel Pasa Caddesi to theKöprübasi bus stop and walk up Çicekli Bostan Sokak, the short, narrow street heading southwest. Cross the first street, Hizir Çavus Köprüsü Sokak, and at the second street, Vodina Caddesi, turn right. Walk four short blocks along Vodina Caddesi to the Ahrida Synagogue, which is on the left-hand side at no. 9, behind the metal door topped by a marble plaque with Hebrew inscription.
WHAT TO SEE IN BALAT
Most famous of Istanbul's old synagogues, the Ahrida Synagogue, also called the Okhrida, is at no. 9 on the street officially named Vodina Caddesi, but often called Kürkçü Çesme Sokak. The Ahrida and nearby Yanbol are said to take their names from the towns in Macedoniafrom which their founding congregations migrated in Byzantine times. The foundations of the Ahrida may date from the late 1400s, or may be even older.
Yanbol Synagogue, Duriye Sokak no. 16, directly opposite Kamis Sokak, is less than a block from the Ahrida. The Yanbol's interior is similar in appearance to the Ahrida before restoration, though the decor here seems more unified. Paintings in the dome are said to portray the Macedonian town of Yanbol, from which members of the original congregation came.
Walk back to the shore road along the Golden Horn, turn left, and walk 500 meters to the Or Ahayim Jewish Hospital (also called the Balat Musevi Hastanesi), Demirhisar Caddesi, built in 1897. A 120-bed hospital attended mostly by Jewish physicians, it's located in the swath of parkland created in the mid-1980s to beautify the Golden Horn's banks.
If you return to Eminönü along the shore of the Golden Horn, you pass the Bulgarian Orthodox Church of St. Stephen of the Bulgars, on the left-hand side of the road, made entirely of cast iron.
10 minutes to Taksim Square
15 minutes to Hagia Sophia, Sultan Ahmet, Grand Bazaar

Ich bin restlos begeistert. Topunterkunft, sehr netter Gastgeber, ideale Lage !!! Ich werde auf alle Fälle wiederkommen!!!
Serdar is what you would call, the perfect host for sure!; welcoming, hospitable, more than willing to help in any way he can, knowledgeable and most important he his himself, which is a kindhearted and smart soul:)
Serdar, thanks soooo much for making our stay even better by having met you and sooooo sorry for my late review.....
My fellow travellers and me would definitly recommend staying here as it has charm, hospitality and a glimpse of Istanbul just outside the tourist area, which makes it all the more interesting.
Hope you're well Serdar and who knows, maybe se you on your travels;)
All the best,
Serdar's apartment is a great choice for a stay in Istanbul, particularly if you are already familiar with the city. He is a very kind and helpful host and speaks English well. His guesthouse is located in an interesting district within easy reach from the centers of Istanbul. It is a place where you can feel like home very easily. The terrace might truly be the best terrace in Fener. :-)
This is the perfect place to stay in Istanbul. Very calm part of the city but very close (walking distance) to the main spots in the old city centre. Serdar and his sister are so nice and friendly host, it's like you feel home. The breakfast on the terace up on the roof is a blast and has a breathtaking view over the "golden horn". It's like heaven on earth in Istanbul. I highly recommand this place to everyone and for sure I will be back.
Serdar's place in Fener is perfect if you want a quiet place to rest after a busy day. We really liked breakfast on the terrace overlooking the river, and the sense that the area (run-down but charming) is inhabited by locals. Would recommend to friends.
I stayed one night in a small but beautiful room. Serdar was very welcoming, prepared a lovely breakfast where he joined us. Location is great, not too far from the centre and a lovely vegetarian café round the corner.
Wir waren Anfang Juni 2016 im Apartment und waren insgesamt 5 Personen. Das Apartment ist sehr lieb und sauber eingerichtet. Der Gastgeber Serdar hat uns sehr warmherzig empfangen und uns alle Wünsche erfüllt. Wir können das Angebot nur wärmsten Empfehlen. Gerne wieder :))
Die Unterkunft war perfekt gelegen, um die Innenstadt zu erkunden. Anbindung per Bus, Tram und Metro funktioniert super, nächste Haltestelle ist "Fener".
Die Hausnummer ist 58, das fehlt leider in der Adressangabe, was dazu führte, dass kein Taxifahrer das richtige Haus finden konnte.
Taxi vom Flughafen Atatürk zwischen 50 - 100 Lira.
Die Unterkunft ist ideal für einen Städtetrip, der Gastgeber sehr sehr nett, und das Frühstück auf der Dachterasse, mit Blick über die Dächer und das Goldene Horn, was besonderes.
Wir haben insgesamt fünf Nächte in Serdars Haus in Balat verbracht und waren absolut zufrieden. Die Freundlichkeit unseres Gastgebers, die schönen Zimmer, die saubere Wohnung, der Ausblick von der Terrasse, der günstige Preis: das alles hat dazu beigetragen, dass wir die Wohnung jederzeit weiterempfehlen würden.
Sehr schöner Ausblick. Ein guter Ort zum Entspannen, mit sehr tollen Zimmern. Nur zum weiter empfehlen! Morgens ein sehr gutes Frühstück mit freundlichen Gastgebern. Ende Juli sind wir dort gewesen und es war unglaublich gut!
