    Response from Damir:

    Hi Carmen,we appreciate our guests who are honest as this is how we (website hidden) to regards the light at the stairways as you know it was not something related to my flat but an issue with the building management that i sorted out after you told me.I will be checking for the cockroaches as this would disturb me as well and we never had any issues with cockroaches in the past.
    I will check with the cleaning lady as I was not there to inspect the cleaning.I checked for the window frames but all the frames are working! Did you mean the window net is falling cause frames are all working?Thanks for reviewing us and sorry for any inconvenience (website hidden),Damir

  • The Apartment is big, well furnished and very well situated. The view is amazing. It's just a minute walk to Balik Market and 2 min. to Istiklal. Also we got free pod coffee, tee, snacks and water. Damir is very friendly and helpful person. I was stucked in Istanbul traffic and Damit waited for me. We enjoyed our stay very much. Thank you!

  • Great apartment!! Damir is a really good host and very helpful. The 5 floors climb is strenuous with heavy bags. The neighborhood is called Tarlabashi, and it's located on the main road. it's close takism square, beyoglu and Istikal street.

  • Damir was great! Have us some really great info on places to go, attractions to see, restaurants to eat at. The place is exactly what it looks like in the pictures. Very clean has great views, good running water (didn't drink it) and all the general necessities were provided. It was perfect size for 4 people (2 singles and a full). Everything you need is within blocks of the apartment too...great location!

    The only negative about the place is it's on the top floor of an elevator less building so big heavy bags were a bit difficult and getting up and down could be a workout for some but it's totally worth it.

    Thanks Damir!

  • We had a nice time at Damir's apartment. It is cozy,well-equipped,with a nice view and well located (email hidden)ly area but quiet. There is a long way up to the 5th floor but it did not bother us.
    Wifi was extra cost which we found a bit exaggerated as it did not work very well all the time.
    On the last day we discovered a small water leak but fortunately Damir seemed relaxed about it which reassured us!
    Overall i would recommend the place for a short stay.

  • The apartment was really nice, as the pictures, in a really good location, 2 min by foot to restaurants, bars, etc.

    Damir was so nice to wait for us 1h30, because our flight was delayed. He also gave us some goods advices for some restaurants, a really nice person.
