  • The apartment is very pleasant and clean, very well located, close to Taksim Square and to the Kabatas ferry station, with good connection options to the Princes' Islands and the Downtown area. The area 15 min away (walking distance) from the apartment offers many cafes, design shops and exhibitions. The main shopping street is also close by. Muge was helpful and hospitable!

  • What an awesome spot to be in. The apartment is very nice, with ferries and the tram to take you all interesting spots only a 3 minute walk away. Muge was very kind and helpful, having compiled a whole reader of insider tips for the area. We'll be back. That's for sure!

  • I stayed here with 3 other people (My sister and parents) for 4 nights. The apartment was spacious and clean, and we thought it was very good value given the price.
    The location was fantastic- a great neighbourhood with a range of cool bars and restaurants nearby. Major tourist spots, Blue mosque, Grand Bizarre etc are just a few stops away on the metro which is just at the bottom of the street or accessible by a short cab, which are plentiful and cheap).
    Muge was also a great host, offering help with logistics from the airport and advise on activities for the week.

  • Muge was very helpful and easily contactable if needed. The apartment was everything I expected and more. The rooms were very comfortable and spacious. The location was also perfect. 5 minutes up the hill and your on Taksim square / Siraselviler Street were there are hundreds of shops, bars and restaurants. And 5 minutes down the hill and you can get a 20 minute tram across to the Hagia Sophia, Sultan Agmed Mosque, Topkapi Palace etc. I would highly recommend this apartment to anybody wanting visit Istanbul.

  • We arrived at midnight at the appartment and were regardless of the late hour warmly welcomed by Muge. The appartment was clean and well looked after. We found everything as described. The beds were comfortable, we had calm and recreative nights. We can strongly recommend this appartment because of its perfect location near Taksim, tram, ferries and restaurants. There is a small but well equipped grocery in the house next to the appartment where you can buy everything for a good breakfast (fruits, milk, bread, müsli, eggs...). Muge is a very helpful host - you can call her at any time if you need some help or information. If we come to Istanbul again we will stay there again.

  • My family and I have stayed at several Airbnb properties over the last few years, and my experience with Muge and her property ranks as one of my very favorites. I travelled with my son and his buddy to Istanbul, so we needed three bedrooms. The apartment was perfect for us -- clean, roomy and well equipped. The location is excellent. Taksim (and the shopping and restaurants) is a short walk up the hill. The tram to the Old City and the Bosphorus are a short walk down the hill. Groceries and everything you need day to day are steps away from the front door. Instructions, suggestions, and maps are clearly written and were available when we arrived.

    But it was Muge that made our experience so exceptional. Communication was almost instantaneous via WhatsApp text messages. She met us at the apartment to check us in and show us the apartment, and she walked us to a local shop to get a bottle of wine after a long journey. We sent a text one evening asking for a restaurant recommendation, and she invited us to join her and Kerem at a great restaurant near Istiklal St. We had a fantastic time and learned a lot about Turkey.

    Hosts like Muge are why I use Airbnb, and Muge is one of the very best.
