About This Listing
2+1, 100m2 apt with a little bit of sea view from the living room.
Cosy flat, in the lively area of Cihangir-Fındıklı, Beyoğlu. 2 minutes walk to the seaside where you can sip your tea while enjoying a wonderful view of the city, with Sultanahmet on one side, the Boshporus Bridge on the other and the Maiden Tower just on your opposite.
Perfect location for public transportation. 2 min. walk to Fındıklı Tram Station, 5 min walk to Kabataş Ferry and 15 min walk(2 stops) to Karaköy Ferry. Sultanahmet is just 5 stops away. Very easy to go to Kadıköy&Üsküdar on the Asian side or to Princess Islands. Fındıklı is the starting point for the Bus Lines also.
Dolmabahçe Palace and İstanbul Modern Museum is just 10 min. walk.
There are two bedrooms with double bed and wardrobes in both. The flat itself and the kitchen is fully equipped, except from a dishwasher. There is Wi-Fi, but no cable tv. But you are not here to watch TV, right?
The flat is at the 4th floor (there is an elevator). All surrounded by windows and full of light. Even the bathroom has lots of daylight. There are 3 little balconies. Yes, you can not barbecue, but good for a change of mood.
Your supermarket is just opposite of the building and tens of nice cafes-restaurants, museums(nearest are Dolmabahçe Palace and İstanbul Modern. 10 min walk), galleries, night-clubs, theaters, gym- yoga centers, banks and famous Taksim-İstiklal Caddesi within 5-20 min walking distance.
For those yoga lovers, one of the best yoga studios in the city is just 2 min. away.
*No smoking in the flat. Clean sheets & towels available.
*individual room booking is available
A* deposit will be taken when you check in and will be paid back wholly when you check out, unless there is a damage in the flat.
p.s.: I am a real İstanbul lover and know a bit about it. Can give great tips if needed. Where to go, what to do in the city, (website hidden) it is also related to my business : )
Living room, kitchen (for simple uses as it is not so big)
Interaction with Guests
Always ready to help anytime they need, with any question they have.
And i try to create some time if i can, to show them a bit of the city from a local perspective.
Very safe and just a min away from the seaside where you can enjoy a great view. Taksim Square is just 10 min walk. Many great cafes in Cihangir neighbourhood.
Many ATM machines and two supermarkets and lots of small shops you can shop for food.
Perfect in transportation wise; sea buses (within Istanbul and to Bursa etc.), boats (to the Asian side and the Princess Islands), tram, metro, buses all within a 5-6 min walk at the most.
Istanbul is called the "City of Seven Hills". Be prepared to take some steps or some steep roads. You will have your daily exercise : )
Other Things to Note
Always unplug electrical equipments and turn of the lights when leaving or not needed.
Always lock the flat's door.
I really care about being tidy, clean and quiet.
Neslihan was a great host, and provided pastries, tea, fruit when we arrived, and sat with us to have tea. She left a wonderful guide for us as well as two Istanbul travel cards that can be used on any of the public transport in the city. We used her guide to find great restaurants and to go sightseeing; they were all wonderful recommendations. The apartment is just as it is listed, and seems larger than it looks in the picture. There was more than enough room for three of us, and the wifi worked perfectly so we could get online. The house is just a short walk to the trendiest neighborhoods, and across the street from a park down by the waterfront. It's a great location!
Just got back from Istanbul, the most beautiful city in the world! Neslihan was a great host! The little things she did for us were just sweet... The flat was beautiful, at excellent location, very central. Very clean, has got everything you need. Perfect place to stay in Istanbul! I certainly hope to go back soon...
Nous avions choisi l'appartement de Neslihan pour sa très belle situation, entre Taksim et le Bosphore avec la proximité du musée d'art moderne et du tramway. Le quartier est vivant et agréable.
L'appartement est très lumineux et de bon standing. Nous avons passé un excellent séjour et l'accueil de Neslihan fut parfait avec suffisamment de temps pour nous expliquer et nous rendre la vie agréable pendant notre séjour.
I had a wonderful time in Nes's flat - it was superbly located for my needs, large, clean and a haven to come back to after long hectic days of visiting publishers. Although we were unable to meet face to face I felt Nes was very much available by text, email and phone if I needed anything. And I really appreciated the tea bags, fruit and Turkish delight!
Nes was a great hostess and this was a really good location. It was close to the buses, metro, taxis, and walking to sites in the historic district. This is just a couple of minutes walking to the Strait and to the ferries to go across the strait or to the islands. Nes provided suggestions on where to go and where to eat, all of which was very helpful. I'd recommend this flat and hostess to anyone. Five stars (sorry my computer won't let me add the stars, but the overall experience with Nes and the apartment were great).
Great host, apartment and location. Would highly recommend this place. Nes was extremely accommodating and even went so far as to show me around, give me recommendations, and made me a fantastic breakfast on my first morning. She is warm hearted and is an amazing person. This is a HOME, not just a place to crash!! I enjoyed the experience very much.
Neslihan is a fantastic host. She was always willing to help us way before our arrival and during our stay. She prepared a list of suggested sites to visit, restaurants to go by categories, best wines... She offered me a SIM card for my cell phone and a public transportation card that I had just to charge. The appartment is very large and clean and closed Taksim place and there is a nearby tramway stop
