1. What does “non-refundable” mean?

If a reservation is booked on “non-refundable” rate type, that means, the sum of money you paid is not returnable in any circumstances. So, the amount of your reservation will be charged %100 from your credit card, whether you make any changes or cancellations on your reservation.

5. What does Habitation Yazıcı stand for? What is the meaning of the hotel name?

It was built in the early 1890s not as a European style apartment but as an Ottoman habitation. We do not know the architect and the first owner. However, the street it was on at the time was called “Yazıcı Street” (now its Serdar-ı Ekrem Street). Probably because, there were some printing houses in the neighbourhood. (“Yazıcı” means “printer” in Turkish). Since we wanted to pay tribute to those times, we kept the name of the street “Yazıcı” in the name of the building.

6. Why are the standard rooms not so big in Meroddi Galata?

 Habitation Yazıcı is at least 110 years old. It has historic value. And it was the first apartment experience of some middle class members of the Ottoman society, who wanted to leave behind the anxiety of fire, as it was frequently confronted in the older wooden mansions. When we bought the historic building, we decided to restore it with great care, staying loyal to its authenticity. So we kept the rooms as original.
