The flat is right in front of the Istanbul iconic Maiden's tower, while on the right side are located Topkapi, Agia Sophia, and the blue mosque, whose views are unbeatable.
Up the street - 10 mns walk - is Taksim square. Down the street - 4 mns walk - is Kabatas quay where boats are leaving for:
- Asian side of the city (Usküdar, Kadiköy, Bostanci)
- Bosphorus cruises
- Princess islands
- Golden horn cruises
- and hydrofoils will even take you to the city of Bursa.
From Kabatas, there is also a tramway stop for Sultanahmet district, and the funicular will take you up to Taksim (for those who do not feel walking uphill) in 5 mns. All the buses passing by are running alongside the Bosphorus. There is also a taxi stand in Kabatas.
To put it in a nutshell, you won't find a better location (and hardly a better view in Istanbul).
