  • I couldn't be more disappointed of Mr Murat Dursun!

    I visited Istanbul from the 19th of June 2014 till the 24th of June 2014. I booked via Airbnb one flat from Mr Dursun that is located in Uftade street, Elmadag.

    Since the flat was not available for all the period of my stay, Mr Murat has offered me to stay in the flat for the first 2 days, and then he would upgrade me to a larger one for the rest of my stay.

    The larger flat was more expensive from the previous one so I had to pay Mr Dursun an amount of cash on my arrival.

    When I got to the first flat, it looked exactly the same as the pictures on the website. Mr Dursun welcomed me and explained the rules of the house, which I apprehended thoroughly then he took the money and left.

    As agreed, he came on the third day to move me to the larger apartment, and there was the shock!

    The other flat was A ROOM, with no kitchenette, and it barely fit my luggage.
    It had some old furniture and was not clean at all.

    I tried to claim about the flat to Mr Dursun, so I opened my inbox and went through the emails that he has sent me. I showed him that this was not what we have agreed on.

    Then I demanded him to be moved to the apartment that I have paid for.
    Allow me to quote his reply: "You should thank God that I'm giving you a bed to sleep on, and if this does not suit you, take your money back and check in a hotel" (knowing that all the hotels of the area were fully booked)!

    I reluctantly stayed in that room since I had no other choice.

    Living this experience was a lesson for me and I wanted to share it with all Airbnb users and customers.

  • Murat was very accommodating and understanding. He allowed us use of his left luggage space which really eased our travels. His place is also near Gezi Park which is where the nearest metro lies and also a convenient 10 minute walk to the Havatas bus stop that serves the two main airports in Istanbul.

  • The apartment is near Taksim square easy walk to metro, also its only 5 mins walk to havatas bus station to airport, clean and cozy apartment. Mr Murat is a nice guy he let us keep the luggage after check out till the evening!

  • 开着车去的,这个区域都是单行并且全是坡,因此想找到车位和停车有点困难,不过好在Mr.Murat给我们找了房子门口的地方。

  • I highly recommend this place. The apartment is near Taksim square, Galata Tower and the always crowded Istikal Street. Although the apartment is near to all Taksim happenings, it is situated in a quite neighborhood, so it is perfect place also for those who need rest after one busy day exploring Istanbul. On a 5-7 minute walking distance is the airport bus shuttle stop, so makes your arrival from the airport to the apartment at low cost. The apartment itself is lovely:neat,clean and warm. Perfect for two people.But the most perfect thing is Murat and his family who will make your stay even more beautiful. Cant wait to visit them again.

  • Wonderful location, comfortable and clean. Host Murat was more than accommodating, very nice, and warm. We had some arrival problems due to delayed flights and Murat said we could pick up the keys anytime even 1am. We ended up arriving the next day and he gave us an apartment across the street which was a bit bigger ( 1 bedroom) for the same price. I would come back and stay next time we visit and recommend staying here to anyone visiting Istanbul who wants to be in this area.

  • We stayed at Murat's studio flat, comfortable and essential, clean, very central near Taksim Sq. (less than 10mns walk), well connected by bus to the airports. Murat is perfect host: he payed a welcome speech, leave the keys and gave us useful tips to enjoy Istambul! Thank you

  • Lo studio apartment è accogliente, confortevole e silenzioso. In buona posizione rispetto ai mezzi pubblici, a Piazza Taksim e alla gremitissima Istiklal Caddesi.
    Murat è stato gentile e ci ha permesso di lasciare i bagagli in casa oltre il check-out.
