Ali is a a great guest, who about much needed little details to welcome guests. the flat as a great location, close to everything you daily needed. The street is really quiet (school was on holidays, so I did not get any noise)
Ich bin zu 100% zufrieden! Ali ist ein super netter Gastgeber der sich wirklich immer sofort kümmert wenn irgendwas ist.
Die Wohnung ist sehr schön und entspricht den Bildern. Alles ist super sauber und man kann sich einfach wohlfühlen. Auch die Lage ist hervorragend, alles was man braucht ist vor der Tür und auch Nachts muss man keine Angst haben beim nach hause gehen.
Alles in allem würde ich dieses Zimmer unbedingt weiter empfehlen !
Thank Ali for being a great host. It is my first experience using AirBnB and it is a very positive one! I feel so lucky to fine such a lovely apartment to stay and the location can't be better! It is so close to nearly everything. Ali is very friendly and kind he responded quickly and try his best to help me. Highly highly recommend!
Ali is a great host, always willing to assist his guest. The room is quite comfortable, with lots of natural light, you get a fast WiFi and the apartment is equip with all I needed to make you feel at home. Additionally the location is excellent, in the heart of Istanbul. I highly recommend Ali's place.
Ali was being very helpful from the start. He was very swift in replying emails. Ali waited to let me into the apartment and explained about how things worked. He was a really nice and helpful host throughout the whole month that I stayed. When there was a problem I would just whatsapp him and he would quickly reply and get things done. He stays on the flat above, so it's convenient as well if you need to speak to him. Other people who were staying in the apartment during my stay were nice and interesting people as well. They are all international.
I was very happy with the room. It was bigger than what I expected. I like the nicely polished wooden floor. The flat was clean throughout during my stay. The cleaner comes every two weeks but we were trying to keep things nice and clean. My room looks to the school opposite the apartment. It was in summer so the school was empty and no noise of students. There is no fan or aircon in my room but it was bearable. I often left the window and the door open so that the breeze came through.
If I happen to come to Istanbul again and want to stay in the centre, I will definitely come and stay at Ali's again.
Ali was a very accommodating and helpful host who was completely flexible with my crazy schedule. And what's more, his place is right in the heart of Taksim, Istanbul's hippest neighborhood! You can't go wrong by staying at Ali's place -- highly recommended.
Ali's place was in an extremely convenient location just around the corner from Istiklal Caddesi, easily accessible to shopping and eating out. It is also quite close to a metro station which can take you straight to Taksim square within 1 stop (alternatively you can take a 20 minute walk down Istiklal Cd. to get to Taksim Square). He was really helpful during my stay there and my room was also quite comfortable. I would definitely recommend his place for anyone wanting to stay somewhere close to an area with a vibrant nightlife.
