NAZ WOODEN HOUSE INN is not close to the commercial site of Sultanahmet; but in the residential part of it, the Ahirkapi district, where the daily life still goes on without much effected from the growing tourism activities in the area. Ahirkapi district is also known as the residance of Turkish gipsies that makes it more colorfull and rich as a survivor of a glorious culterel heritage. The area is under protection now because of the historical wooden houses slighlty remainig in the city. Among these houses is the NAZ Wooden House INN, ''a 130 years-old unique house that has recently restored.''
An important detail distinguishing NAZ from other wooden houses is that it also contains the remains of an older building made of stone which dates back to the 8th century and is thought to be a secondary building of the Byzantine Palace. The remnants of the historic building are preserved in the interior walls of NAZ, as are the some of the original Byzantine arches and columns. This makes the NAZ Wooden House Inn unique. Although some part of the building was unfortunately destroyed, with the consent of the Commission for Ancient Monuments, NAZ Wooden House Inn was rebuilt with its exterior as an exact replica of the original home.
