Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • Great place to stay. Taner's mother made check-in/out very simple and convenient. The apartment is spacious and clean, exactly as described. Location was perfect - a 5-10 minute walk to famous sites. I came into Istanbul from Ataturk airport using the metro system (~1 hour to the Sultanahmet stop), and it was an easy walk to the apartment from there once you get familiar with the streets. Highly recommend this apartment - it was perfect!

  • We stayed at Sultanahmet Gardens for nearly one month. The location is wonderful,within close walking distance to all the main touristy sights and yet still in a little back street where locals go about their daily lives, we absolutely adored it.
    The apartment is very spacious,light and comfortable.The bathroom is serviceable but desperately needs to be upgraded.
    Taner's family were fantastic in offering many suggestions regarding sights around Istanbul and gave us so many historical insights into the area we were staying in. They addressed any issues we had immediately.
    Overall, we had the most fabulous time.We have been to Istanbul many times before and stayed in hotels, I would highly recommend this apartment. It is basic but serviced all out needs. We felt very safe and comfortable. There are many little shops within walking distance to buy your daily food (bread,milk etc) and restaurants are a 5 minute walk.

  • Inizio dicendo che i proprietari dell'appartamento sono estremamente gentili e disponibili, la casa però è meno confortevole di quanto appare nelle foto.
    La stanza da letto affaccia sul vano scala, che avvolte rimane acceso tutto la notte illuminando la stanza a giorno, la posizione non è delle migliori, ma soprattutto il bagno è del tutto inagibile.dIl rubinetto del lavandino non esce acqua calda, la doccia è al centro del bagno senza piatto ( quindi quando ti fai la doccia lavi bagni tutto il bagno) ed il wc emana cattivo odore. Insomma non era poi così piacevole rientrare a casa la sera.

  • We stayed for 3 nights in Taners lovely apartment. Clean. Firm bed. Warm (centrally heated). Very very well located. Easy to walk to the main sights. Good restaurants too very close (try Shadow for drink and meals) and roof top terrace at Seven Hills for the view. We were met by Taner's lovely very helpful mother who checked us in and out and gave us lots of information about the main sights, day trips etc. We recommend this apartment a lot. Thank you to Taner and his mother.

  • Taner and his brother were very attentive and really nice people. Taner even made a special effort to be up at 4am to ensure we made it to the airport okay. The room's location is great and vintage atmosphere were its strong points.

    At the time we had difficulties with the wifi dropping out every day we were there. Whilst Taner did his best to solve it, it was frustrating when one spends time researching the next day in the room. The toilet and shower being in the same wet area was uncomfortable to be honest.

    We would recommend staying here.

  • Unfortunately I could not meet our hosts, but I found the flat like described on the site. Just an issue with the Internet connection but it was fixed in a phone call. You can hear the Muezzin from your bed, this is magic.
