  • This apartment was all we could have wanted. It was perfectly located. The area has lots of cafés and restaurants as well as the historic Galata tower. The apartment was within minutes from the Main square but still down a quite lane away from all the hectic goings on. The area has a bohemian feel with lots of music shops and workshops. The apartment itself was clean, comfortable well fitted out. We found the arrangements straight forward and well organised. We would be happy to recommend to friends.

  • The loft has all the comforts of home and is very clean. The washer and dryer was a great convenience! The loft is located in a dynamic neighborhood footsteps away from Galata Tower. Even though we stayed over one week, we never cooked because Galata Kitchen is just doors away and serves delicious food. Centrally located, it is an easy walk to the Istanbul Modern, the Karakoy port to catch a ferry to explore the Bosphorus Strait, and the tram to the Old City. We would definitely stay again if we are so lucky to return to Istanbul.

  • We had a great stay at Volka & Safak's apartment. Their place was clean, very comfortable, and in a great location just around the corner from Galata Tower. The alley/street is just removed from all the cafes and hustle & bustle of the Tower area so it was nice and quiet each night. As this was the first place we stayed at in Istanbul, it provided a great jumping off point for walking around the New District and it was also just a short walk down the hill to cross the bridge into the spice market and Golden Horn. The internet worked well and the kitchen was fully stocked, which made staying in and cooking dinner one evening a simple event.

    The only issue we had was connecting with them when we landed as we had to wait around at the cafe and track them down. We did not have a phone but had also just traveled for 20hrs - which was mildly upsetting. That said, once we were on the ground, they were extremely responsive to all our emails and more than helpful with answering question.

    In short, We loved our stay and we'd definitely stay again.

  • Very nice place - Perfect location - Fully kitted up (washing machine + drier is a very nice to have if you have been on the road for sometimes).

  • We loved staying at the ROA Loft. It is nearby the Galata Toren in the beautiful neighbourhood Beyoglu. A perfect place to relax and only a few minutes away from lovely boutiques and restaurants. The appartment was clean and everything was well arranged. We will come back very soon. Istbanbul is a place to fall in love with!! Greetings Arnica, Linda and Wendy

  • Cosy apartment in Istanbul, convenient, clean and in a safe neighbourhood. So close to Istiklal street and Galata tower. Dont forget to check out the Galata Kitchen - yummy food! Thanks Safak!

  • We had an absolutely marvelous stay in Volkans apartment. This was an ideal central location for us, a family of three, allowing us to be free of a car during our visit and permitted great exploration of Istanbul. The apartment was spacious and comfortable. The kitchen was well equipped. There are three flights of stairs so the visitor should be comfortable with this. We hope to stay again when we return to Istanbul! Thank you for your hospitality Volkan!

  • My boyfriend and I stayed for 3 nights in Istanbul at the ROA Loft. It is very well located in a nice quarter with the Galata Tower basically across the street. The hosts were very flexible regarding our arrival time and although we never met them in person they were very helpful via text messages. Clean and beautful apartment, couldn't be better! Nice extra for all those who are a little scared: the door is a massive security door :)

  • The Roa Loft is great. We stay there for three nights. You are in the middle of everything and it's close to the shopping area. For young and old, i definitely recommend this place for a short or longterm stay!
