Decoration of apartment was nice. Very kind host and cleaning lady. Helped us on every request.
Little noisy from near by restaurants until midnight. After than music stopped. No problem
very nice host. central location. reasonably priced. lots of restaurants around.
There was no elevator and they first put us on the 5th floor which was a problem for my husband. Then they moved us to the third floor which was better.
Good location between Grand Bazar (Beyazit tram stop, 7 mins up street) and Yenikapi subway (15 mins with no acsend). Blue Mosque in 15 mins walk. Many good restaurants with live music around. Olimpiyat2 was our favourite. Also many kids shops along street leading to subway station. 10 mins walk to Yenikapi IDO bus station where Havaist shuttle from new airport comes to. Very friendly and helpful staff always available in Whatsapp, clean room, quite spacious (we were 2 adults + 2 small kids). Stylish interior, so that you feel like living in Ottoman empire. Breakfast a plus.
Pls note narrow stairs up to your apt. They add history and vintage to interior, but could be the issue for old or disabled people. Credit card payments are limited, so you should prepare cash (cheapest way to get TRY were AkBank red ATMs). Some frying pans looked very used and should be changed (all other silverware and kitchen staff were nice, so just a wish)
Undoubtedly Istanbul has an air and a special life. You have to see it at least once
The location is located in a very noisy area. The screaming music and the drums beat until late at night. Unpleasant surprises with accommodation. I paid one and no other was offered
Like the location. Like the staff, especially Erdem, Karin and Recef. Wonderful place to tase the real istanbul old city life within walking distance to Hagia Sofia and Grand Bazaar. Also great place for evening dining with live music. Love it!
