The Space

That flat offers a comfortable stay in istanbul, a good option for couples, families and friends. Here is located in Taksim where more or less everything is going on. There are a few 'thousands' cafes, bars, restaurants, shops, cinemas in the area. Youd be in 2min walking distance to popular Istiklal Street, 5 min to Taksim sqaure, 15min to galata tower, 5-15min to all public transport. Biggest tourist attractions will be 20min car ride away from this spot.
There is a bedroom for 2 people and a livingroom for another 2 people of needed to sleep, properly equipped kitchen to cook. Fresh bed linens and towels are provided.
There are no photos of the bathroom yet but its as good as the rest of the fl at id say. As soon as the photographer comes ill upload them here anyway, no worries.
Welcome to stay here.

  • The flat was bigger than expected. Omer was very friendly and gave us the most important informations.

  • Onder was very quick in communicating and made everything easy. He had people meet us at his apartment and explain as best they could (with no common language) about how things worked. It was great to be so close to the action on nevizade and istiklal and taksim. for a block or two around the apartment, however, things were a bit grungy. the pictures are brighter and make the apartment seem a bit larger than it is- that said, it was quite nice and comfortable and overall a great stay, would definitely recommend it.

  • Great location but several draw backs. The apartment's bathroom was not up to standards. Paint chips fell to the floor while I was showering, the bathroom smelled of mildew, and the water seeped out of the bathroom into the hallway. Onder was, however, very accommodating of our schedule and allowed us to store our bags at the apartment until our bus left. Overall a good location, economic price, and nice host but the bathroom facilities made this stay rather uncomfortable. If the question of Cost vs. Comfort were revisited, I'd have chosen comfort.

  • We stayed at Onder's flat for 5 nights and we had a good time there.
    Communication with Onder was fairly good up until we arrived at the meeting point and he didn't show up for half an hour (and didn't answer the phone) which was a little annoying being tired after a day's travel. But then he led us to the apartment which is really located perfectly about 10 minutes from Taksim in a back road of Istiklal Caddesi, one of the main shopping areas. The apartment is really very basic and the pictures are very flattering, but it was fine for our needs. If you consider renting it though, be aware that if you intend to cook in the kitchen you will have a hard time - there were no matches for the gas stove, no bowls, sharp knives, cleaning utensils, coffee maker etc., not even salt to cook... Also, if you plan on using the sofa as an extra bed you should know that the living room is VERY noisy to sleep in! Apart from that we enjoyed our stay and all in all would recommend it to anyone who doesn't mind the noise (in the bedroom it was fine) and the badly equipped kitchen.

  • Onder was very flexible in meeting us for our check in. He was very friendly and helpful. The flat was perfect - exactly what we needed and in a central location close to everything in Istanbul. We had a few issues with the bathroom but nothing major - overall, I recommend staying at Onder's.

  • The apartment was perfect for our stay. My girlfriend and i spent 6 days in Istanbul and the location was perfect. It is close to all the trains etc which makes it super easy to get around. The kitchen and bathroom are small but are exactly what we needed. Onder is very helpful and responds quickly. He always seemed genuinely happy to help. I would recommend this apartment to anyone spending 1 night to a couple of weeks in Istanbul.

  • The flat is nice, though not as charming as on the fotos. The bathroom definitely needs some upgrade, but everything worked fine so no complaints. The very kitchen basics are provided. The location is great, very close to Taksim Square, walking distance to Galata Tower, the Bosphoros, Bosphoros Bridge, Marmara Sea, Karakoy and Kabatas. Onder seems to be nice, but is not very reliable, he only responded one out of four Airbnb messages and in that one didn't actually answer my questions, so that we didn't know the exact adress until I could get him on the phone at the Istanbul airport. Also, the apartment wasn't cleaned up when we got there, which seemed due to either his forgetting that we were coming or his very bad time managing, we arrived around one in the afternoon, so there should have been enough time ... all in all, we had a great stay in Istanbul, any apartment would have been fine, this one was ok, authentic, but one can do better

  • Onder was great! He met us the minute we arrived near his address and showed us up to the apartment. The couch and chairs are great substitutes to sleep on if you have more people than fit in the one bed. The bathroom was not great, but the rest of the apartment was perfect for the one night stay we needed. I would definitely recommend Onder.

  • Great location to istiklal avenue. Our host was very accommodating with receiving us. We were late coming from the airport which should be known for everyone that it takes a lot longer to get there than your think!
    The apartment is nice although the bathroom and kitchen are definitely average.
    Overall it was a perfect place for me and my friends to stay in Istanbul.

  • Even that we couldn't meet Onder but he was helpful enough. The apartment is in very good strategic location, clean and comfortable with a big living room. It is exactly like the picture.

About
Although it seems to transform everyday, I still know Istanbul like the back of my hand. I have a collection of favorite places (some old, some new) and things to do & see in Istanbul that I'm happy to share with you. I enjoy simple, basic pleasures: good food, (visual/audio) art, yoga, exploring, seasides, and street cats. I'm newly taking over these listings which were previously managed by my friend, Önder. I'll be the main point of contact for all reservations (by e-mail and phone), but you will be met by Ali for check-in. I'm happy to answer any questions you might have as well as point out things that shouldn't be missed.
