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.

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.
Ich bin restlos begeistert. Topunterkunft, sehr netter Gastgeber, ideale Lage !!! Ich werde auf alle Fälle wiederkommen!!!
Stunning house in a pleasant area of Istanbul! It was amazing to stay here for four nights with the group of friends. Twenty minutes walk to the main attractions, clean and stylish rooms, fast Internet, plenty of space for up to eight people, incredible terrace, very nice host! Serdar, his sister and his friend were very helpful and interesting people to talk with, every evening we had a long time sitting and talking on the terrace, which is probably the best terrace in Istanbul. View was stunning, especially at night.
This house is perfect to stay in while traveling Istanbul, hope to return here!
We stayed for 5 nights at Serdars shelter and it was a great pleasure. The hosts were friendly, nice and helpful all the time. The breakfast was delicious. All the house, the rooms and toiletts were clean and the view from the terrace amazing. The location of the shelter was really central and near to most of the touristic "must sees". We can recommend the shelter to everyone and we will come again for sure. Best greetings!
Serdar was a friendly and helpful host. The domicile, located in an interesting old part of Istanbul, was nice. We enjoyed our stay very much.
Reviewing our 5-days trip to Istanbul we are still deeply impressed about this pulsating city as well as about the friendly, open people and especially the heartly hospitality of our host Serdar and his family. Their house- owned by his older sister- is situated in the formerly greek quarter Balat. This long time neglected quarter-together with Fener- is starting now to renovate the sometimes dilapidated houses - but without changing the origin structure of this friendly and lovely typical quarter. We didn't see any big hotel -only single apartments respectively vacation flats. Serdars house is situated on a small downhill street and has a few different bed-rooms, two small kitchens and small bath-rooms- where you can look over the Golden Horn while toothbrushing! Beside the small living room you will find a terrace with an phantastic view to the Halic gulf, the bridge,the opposite quarters and around the roofs of Balat. You can prepare your breakfast by yourself but even Serdar is going to prepare if you want. On the evening we enjoyed always the interesting conversation with Serdar and his far-travelled sister about the land & it's people - but not only about. As aforesaid- the quarter and houses are still ongoing in reconstruction, even Serdars home will be improved more and more. You can see the traditionally idea in choosing the matching furniture, bed, lamps aso. The bus stop is only 5 minutes around the corner, you have to by "Istanbul Card" and charge with 10 Liras. The Bus 99A is passing the Atatürk-Bridge and cross-back the Galata-Bridge from where you can easy walk to all the highlights Aya Sophia, Blue Mosque, Topcapi and so on. Even the Calaloglu-Hammam we can recommend. All in all we can recommend this house warmly for tourists they want to see, enjoy and participate in local life, have fun in contact with the local people as well. Serdar, Once again Thank You for your hospitality & good luck Andre' from Rostock, Germany
