This is the kind of experience which leads me to airbnb - the opportunity to meet people like Cihan and Hakan both of who are engaged in their communities, extremely hospitable and great conversationalists! Their warmth and friendliness made my days enjoyable. The balcony is a great hangout, the internet reliable and their assistance with directions, taxis etc. really thoughtful.
I wish I could post pictures of the beautiful orchids she grows and the glass she re-purposes. The location - right off a main road and yet a quiet residential street - is quiet and convenient. The room is cozy and has the necessary conveniences. Loved the conversations and the inside stories about events in Istanbul.
Everything was great
Cihan and her husband Hakan were absolutely wonderful! They are so welcoming and friendly. Also they are very understanding and will go out of their way to make sure you are having a positive experience. The apartment and neighborhood are great. very close to a market, an interesting square with many shops and the Levent metro is just a short walk away. the neighborhood is quiet and peaceful. There is an amazing luxury shopping mall Zoru only a 10 minute walk away. Great shopping, a cinema and restaurants can be found there.
if you are staying in Istanbul i highly recommend you try to stay with them. you won't regret it
Me and my girlfriend had a 5 days stay at Cihan's apartment and it was great! The hosts were really kind, wanting to help us in everything and giving us nice advises how to reach every attraction in the city. The apartment is very close to metro station (5-10 minutes walking by foot) and it's around 30-40 minutes from the historical part of the city (with the walking and the usage of metro). We strongly reccomend your stay at Cihan's!
This is a great place to stay. Levent is convenient to Taksim Square (by a short metro ride) and Bogazici University (by a short bus ride). The apartment itself is as advertised -- sunny, large, extremely nice, with a very pleasant balcony. The bedroom is not big, but it's comfortable, and the living room/dining room is quite spacious. Plus there is the balcony.
Cihan and Hakan are wonderful people. They are both very sweet and kind, but they are also intelligent and well-informed, with interesting opinions about all manner of topics. I really enjoyed talking with them.
Cihan and her husband were very nice when I was incapacitated with a muscle spasm and ended up spending all day (for two days) in their apartment. They were also very interesting to talk with. Their apartment is big and pleasant and close to a subway stop.
They are just plain awesome, very accommodating and friendly. I hope to visit them again in the future!
I should say that I was really lucky to stay in this apartment. It was literally wonderful moment with Cihan and Hakan. I needed a place to recharge my battery and refresh myself, finishing my exchange student in New York, and it turned out to be the best choice. They showed real Turkish's hospitality, trying to make me feel comfortable and help me a lot such as giving detailed information about Istanbul. It was more than I expected. As for the house, it is clean, cozy, and beautiful with nice balcony. I used to go out in the balcony and read a book with the cool fresh air breeze.
I would recommend any potential tourist to stay in Cihan and Hakan's apartment. Nothing better!
Cihan and Hakan were great. They have a elegant relaxing apartment, walking distance from the metro and were very friendly and helpful during our stay as well as providing entertaining and interesting company. They also give free cigarettes.
Cihan and Hakan are awesome hosts. They are very helpful and interesting people, and Cihan makes fantastic deserts. Levent is a nice area and it is easy to get to and from the busy parts of the city on the metro. Thank you for everything!
