We had a really lovely stay at Soner's place in Istanbul. Soner was really helpful throughout the whole process and gave us lots of tips for the area. The house was small and the bathroom very basic but it's a really cosy place to stay! It was easy to get to Kadaköy as well as the European side. Will, who is living in the house, was very helpful when our baggage didn't arrive, as he repeatedly called the airport and spoke in Turkish to the staff. I would definitely recommend a visit to Soner's place!
Soner fue un gran host. Nos busco del metro y camino con nosotros camino a su casa para mostrarnos el camino y darnos algunos tips. El único problema es que teníamos pocos días en Estambul y al quedarnos en Uskudar (lado asiático) y cruzar al lado europeo (donde está el gran bazaar, Sofía y la mezquita azul) perdíamos mucho tiempo de caminata, o ferry. El baño al estilo turco es un poco incómodo para usar x tanto creo que debería aclarar que dispone de este y no del convencíonal
My wife and I were pleased with Soner's place. Everything is functional and comfortable. The only thing that's a bit inconvenient is to get from and to the European side to Soner's place. It can take up to one hour to walk, go to a boat or metro, then your destination, however if you look at it differently, it's also an opportunity to do people watching and absorb daily life in Istanbul
A clean, tidy house in a good location on the Asian side of Istanbul. Soner picked me up from Uskudar metro station (about a 15 minute walk) and made me feel welcome. His housemate Will was also very helpful. I enjoyed staying here and it really enhanced my time in Istanbul. I would certainly recommend if you want to stay somewhere away from the tourist areas!
Our decision to stay at Soner's apartment was right, it was in the heart of old Uskudar, very nice surrounding, almost sits right next to the Valide Atik Camii, so very convenient for my husband to go there for Jamaah. Soner is a nice person, picked us up at Kadikoy where we thought we could find the house ourselves, only feeling glad since the house is quite hard to find on our own for a first timer. He even offered us a free ride to the European side, taste lovely Istanbul's air on our first day. The neighbourhood was nice and helpful, had a few chats with the locals, we even make friends with some. The only downside for me who hadn't go hiking for yonks, the climb back home is quite challenging. But that is Istanbul, it's the land of hills so ya, I just keep the sigh to myself then. So yep, I would recommend Soner's place for anyone looking for a stay in this wonderful city...
Я очень рад, что остановился в этом месте. Дом расположен в азиатской части города, что позволило мне увидеть старый город, простую жизнь местного населения, а также местные достопримечательности азиатской части города. Soner был очень вежлив и помог мне сориентироваться по городу. Мечтаю вновь оказаться в прекрасном городе контрастов - Стамбул. Хочу сказать большое спасибо Soner!
Vi boede tre nætter i Soners værelse og det var en dejlig oplevelse. Der var rent, pænt og ligesom resten af lejligheden charmerende. Lejligheden ligger i et fredeligt kvarter og var desuden uden en eneste turist at få øje på, hvilket var en spændende og autentisk oplevelse. Der er gå-afstand til bymidten med færger og metro til Kadiköy og den europæiske del. Soner bød os velkommen på en behagelig og venlig måde og gav os gode tips til hvad vi skulle opleve. I lejligheden boede også en flink amerikansk mand, som var meget rar og behjælpelig med småting. Vi havde på alle måder en skøn tid i Soners hjem og vil bestemt anbefale det til andre rejsende, der har lyst til at bo i en del af Istanbul, der er autentisk og spændende.
