And the third one as one bed which turn into a double bed, if needed. The apartment is located in Cihangir which is the new heart of İstanbul. It's walking distance to metro and the sea bus.

We had a lovely time at Ebru's place. The neighbourhood is great, lots of cafes nearby and the tram is a short walk away. Ebru had lots of good recommendations about the local area and Istanbul in general and the flat is spacious and comfortable--a great place to stay while exploring Istanbul.
It's been a couple of weeks and I'm still missing this lovely apartment, in my Favorite neighborhood of Istanbul! Comfortably spacious, clean, and beautifully decorated, this apartment is definitely a home away from home. The apartment is situated in the heart of Cihangir which abounds with charming cafes, bars, bakeries, vintage stores and the like, while also being close to the center of Taksim.
E-ka was a Wonderful host and was always available when needed. It was a pleasure to meet and converse with her! Staying here was one of the best aspects of my visit and can definitely recommend it.
Great location, many pleasant bars and restaurants around. Very conveniently located to enjoy the city life and to go to the touristic sights.
The apartment is as seen on the pictures: spacious, densely decorated, with two large and comfortable bedrooms and small third bedroom with an ok single bed. It's an old building: you may hear the neighbors, and they will hear you as well. They tend to complain easily (if you walk too heavily on the wooden floors for instance). So be prepared to be mindful of noise, and it will be alright.
Ebru has been a very pleasant, helpful and accommodating host.
I would certainly come again!
The apartment is well-situated as noted in several other reviews. It's on a fairly quiet street and close to Taksim square, the metro line, and many shops, bars, and restaurants. The location is generally central and makes most of Istanbul readily accessible. It also doesn't feel like a predominantly touristy part of town, providing a more "real" experience and feel of life in the city.
Ebru was very easy to get in touch with and maintained good communication prior to and throughout our stay.
The apartment is spacious and clean. However, it's Ebru's own place, so it's full of personal items which makes it feel more homey but also leaves less room for your own belongings. Despite some minor "aging infrastructure" challenges, the apartment met our (6 guests) needs well and we'd recommend the place to other travelers.
Our stay at Ebru's apartment--I was traveling with another male friend, and we used two bedrooms--was enjoyable in every way. Ebru was terrifically helpful, intelligent and insightful, attentive, and charming. She guided our taxi driver in from the airport to her apt. by phone; cheerfully and efficiently explained the apartment's details and "house rules"; phoned a few times during our week there to make sure things were OK; and hosted us for a lovely breakfast the morning we left. The apartment met our needs fully, and it is in an exceptionally atttarctive part of town: Cihangir feels like SoHo in the 70s, bustling with cafes, interesting shops, nightlife (but not oppressive nightlife), and energy. The apartment was as advertised, and Ebru could not have been a better host. A wonderful experience.
We are a French family of 5 and have stayed for 6 nights in Ebru's appartment: it was just great! the appartment is spacious, very clean and charming, you feel instantly at home. Ebru has been a great host, always available for any kind of advice by phone or text. The neighbourhood is perfect, convienently located with plenty of restaurants around, I wish we could stay longer to explore it more thoroughly... There are so many things to do in Istanbul!
Great stay, great place indeed!
Our Istanbul trip was just great. The apartment is located in a super cool area "the soho of Istanbul" and we had great fun staying there.
Lots of restaurants and bars. The apartment was clean and very cozy. Ebru, our host was very kind. She provided us with lots of useful information, great tips on restaurants, insider places, hamam and so on. We would love to come back soon.
