  • Yaprak's apartment is well located although a walk to Cihangir or Taksim involves steep hills.But this is Istanbul!The apartment itself has a good layout and use of space BUT in both bedrooms there are thin material blinds that do not cover the windows completely and street lights beside the windows illuminate the bedrooms all night as if its daytime.I had to use the 2nd bedroom mattress up against the window to reduce the effect.This is not the apartment for you if you need darkness to (website hidden) the time of my stay the shower head wasn't attached and hanging by a piece of material so you couldn't shower without holding it.Hardly a shower.The washing machine is old and no dryer, I had to use a laundry.I don't think I would choose to stay here again.

  • Die Unterkunft ist sehr günstig gelegen nahe Metro Station Taksim. Von dort kommt man überall hin. In der Umgebung sind besonders viele Scene Restaurants die nicht touristisch sind. Die Schlüsselübergabe hat ausgezeichnet funktioniert. Die Unterkunft war super sauber und sogar ein Fön war vorhanden. genug Platz und sehr ruhige Gegend. Es gab auch Regenschirme und Reiseführer. Besonders nett war eine List mit Restaurant Empfehlungen in der Umgebung

  • My fiance and I stayed at Yaprak's place along with my sister and her husband. Yaprak met us there when we arrived and was very helpful in giving us suggestions of things to do and giving us a map to show us where various sites and restaurants were. She also helped set up transportation to the airport for a very early morning flight. She was extremely nice, we couldn't have asked for a better host.

    As far as the flat goes, the pictures show a very accurate depiction. It's very cozy with a modern feel and all the amenities you would need. The location is great, walking distance to major bus stops and metro stops, Taksim square, and many nice restaurants and stores. We had a great time in Istanbul, and we would highly recommend staying here if you're visiting.

  • We loved staying at Yaprak's apartment. Everything was as promised by the listing: Yaprak is a delightful and helpful person, who organised our airport transfer, and was there waiting for us when we arrived. She helped us get settled and oriented and gave us some great tips for eating and getting about. The apartment itself was great: spacious, comfortable and well equipped. The location was fantastic. Yes, it's on a steep hill with lots of steps, but we were amazed at how quickly we adapted. It's about 10 minutes up the hill to Taksim Square and about 5 minutes down the hill to the T1 tram to take you to the Old City, though we walked across most days as we loved exploring the amazing city of Istanbul! The only little annoyance with had with the apartment is that it's very bright, with street lights shining in both bedrooms at night, and it can also get a bit noisy. Would this stop us from staying again? No! We utilised ear plugs and sleep masks.

  • The flat is lovely, in a great part of the city right next to taksim square, plus a short walk to get a tram into the old part of the city. Yaprak is a great host, who was willing to help us at anytime with suggestions on where to eat etc.

  • This is a beautiful apartment located a short (very uphill) walk to Taksim square. It was initially really hard to find as the apartment is in a walkway off the street. Yaprak was very helpful and it was great having a washing machine after 2 weeks of travelling! I slept extremely well there after a few very busy days in Istanbul. The bathroom was a bit smelly and the shower was a handheld head that couldn't be mounted. Additionally, on our last day the hot water didn't work!

  • The apartment is very cozy and warm. Close to town and shops. I definitely recommend and have everything in the description of the apartment. The apartment is also very clean and well equipped. It is located in the residential area so very quiet but only takes 5 minutes’ walk to the Taksim Square. We had a really good time in Istanbul.

  • The flat was perfect for two couples. The day of our arrival we were met promptly by Yaprak. She did a great job explaining the apartment and giving us tips on restaurants to visit. Over the week we called her a couple of time with questions, once about the apartment, and once for directions. Again, she answered promptly and was very helpful. The location is only a few blocks from Taksim Square, close to plenty of restaurants and a moderate walk to public transportation. If you need a taxi the stand is a short walk down the hill.

  • Die Wohnung hat uns super gut gefallen. Die Fotos vermitteln einen sehr realistischen und wie wir fanden einen gemütlichen Eindruck. Wir waren 3 Personen + Baby und es war definitiv genügend Platz für alle.
    Auch die Lage der Wohnung ist optimal. In wenigen Minuten ist man in der Innenstadt (Berg rauf), bzw. am Meer (Berg runter).
    Wir hatten ein kleines Problem mit dem Durchlauferhitzer, bei dem Yaprak uns schnell helfen konnte.
    Wir haben den Urlaub sehr genossen!

  • This is the second time we've stayed at Yaprak's flat. She's a terrific host. Very attentive and helpful if/when needed. The flat itself is comfortable and clean. Having a fridge is super nice though we didn't find out selves needing it.

    Highly recommend Yaprak!
