Wir waren mit 4 Frauen in (website hidden) war ein super Erlebnis. Insbesondere die gute Lage unseres Apartments gab uns die Möglichkeit unsere Zeit bestmöglich zu nutzen!!
Super Apartment, super Gastgeber!
Es hab einen leichten Kanalgeruch. Uns ist jedoch aufgefallen, dass dies in vielen Häusern in Istanbul der Fall ist.
We enjoyed our stay at Yesim's place! The location is great. Few miniutes walk to the tram which takes you to all main sights of the city. Apartment is quiet, clean, light and well designed. One but very little minus was the smell from the bathroom, but nothing can't be done about it and it's not that important. Apartment is located on the hill, which is rather steep, especially if you go up to Taksim square and Istiklal street: But it's good for health;) Little grocerie stores around offer bottled water and snacks.
In other words, thanks to Yesim for wonderful shelter, warm place and warm welcome. Sorry for disturbing during St. Valentines' day:)
I'd recomend this place to stay during your visit to Istanbul.
About the Host (Yeshim Khan): Yeshim is a very prompt, helpful & her ability to speak English has eased I & my family in just so many ways! Yeshim greeted us upon our arrival. She simultanously assisted us to get the taxis for us to travel around the city.
About the Apartment: It's a not-so-small-not-so-big unit. Two real bedrooms plus a super comfy bunk bed placed near the living room. Yeshim provided us with fresh linen & towels as soon as we checked in. But those stuffs were provided once, hence it's wise to keep things clean throughout your stay for continuous comfort. The weather was pretty cold (between 6 to 2 degree Celsius) throughout our stay in Istanbul. Thank God all seven heaters worked to keep us warm. Only the water heater was not so stable. It's either too hot or icey cold.
The kitchen is a perfect one if you wish to do some cookings! Groceries shops are just within walking distance. Location wise, I must say that the apartment is in ideal location. It's very hilly around the apartment, but if you enjoy walking, Taksim Sq is just within 5 to 10 minutes walking distance. From there, you can take a tram to everywhere!
The historical Topkapi Palace, Hagia Sofia & Blue Mosque are reachable in just 15-20 minutes time, by tram. The prominent Grand Bazaar is just 10 minutes away, by taxi (but the fare can be a lil bit expensive)
All in all, I & my family enjoyed our stay at the apartment & we definitely love Istanbul!
We had a wonderful long weekend at Yeshim's very cute apartment directly in Taksim. Yeshim offered to organize transportation fro the airport to the apartment and that just worked great so we also booked that private shuttle for the way back. There is a public bus from Taksim going as well but if you have seen the hills and stairs going up to Taksim Square, you do not wanna do that with your suitcase :)
We stayed at the apartment with four people for four nights and had plenty of space. The area around the apartment is really nice and you gan catch the little metro train from the station close by to Sultanahmet which takes about 15 minutes. Yeshim showed us all the nice places on a map and she also had a little self-made travel book with all the insider tips.
It was the first time that we booked a place via airbnb and were really happy about this place. We can really recommend staying here and would definitely choose it again for our next visit in Istanbul.
Very cosy and well located apartment with all utilities available. Host were very friendly and helpful! We enjoyed our stay in the apartment and would definitively recommend this place!!
The apartment is very nicely furnished and decorated, and in a great area. We were there in 5 and it was spatious enough, with 2 sleeping in the living room.
Excellent place. Quite near the havatas bus drop off from Sabiha airport. We walked from there to the apartment since cabs are charging 4-5x as much to take a cab. Meter should only be about 5lira.
Place is just lovely. Host and caretaker who welcomed us was quite helpful. Very close to tram station and istiklal road. If we do get the chance one day, we shall return.
Listen, guys! we've been to many places on out nice palnet. This weekend it was stunning Istanbul. We always pay a lot of attention to choosing a right apartment. Here are our criterias :
1. Energy and aura of the place
2. Best location: close to transport hubs, city central but same time quite and calm at night (really hard to find sometimes).
3. Host(s) personality
4. Amentities in the apartment (everything shoul be there including iton and hair dryer)
5. Safety and heighbours.
Due to this list Yesim's aprtment is 100% BINGO! We was very happy to live there, it was one of the most positive and joyfull expiriences in our lives. Thank Yesim and Sashah for this incredible weekend and their support in any issues. Conclusions: 1) WE WILL COME BACK! 2) STRONGLY RECOMMENDED for everybody who understand the taste of life.
Sehr schönes Apartment in toller Lage zur Altstadt. Taksin Platz und alle Fähren in kürzester Zeit per Fuß (5 - 10 Minuten) zu
erreichen. Freundliche, hilfsbereite Gastgeberin, die einem auch wunderbare Tips gibt, mit denen man Istanbul seht dut erkunden kann.Eine Woche Istanbul ist zu wenig, wir kommen wieder, wenn möglich, in dieses Apartment.
Great house. Very close to Tram station which takes you pretty much everywhere. Beware of the huge hill you have to go up in order to get to Taksim and Istiklal, though.
Yesim also prepared a whole file full of shopping tips, good places to go and restaurant recommendations, which was great.
