Please do not make noisy parties in the flat.
I expect you to take care of my home as yours.
It was a very pleasant stay! Very good accommodation option for budget travelers. The flat is within 10mins walk to Taksim square, only one turn as I remembered, with quiet and neat neighborhood. The flat is small but very cosy and tidy, I could find whatever I am supposed to have at home. Such a pity that I could only stay for a few nights, but definitely I will have it on the very top of the list of accommodation options next time when I travel to Istanbul.
BTW I didn't have the luck to meet Nico this time, instead I met another nice and friendly gentleman Ahmet, Nico's business partner. I believe Nico must be as helpful and patient as Ahmet in every way
Great host and listing was exactly as described!
Offered some awesome advice on how to get around Istanbul and was super friendly - even offered to answer any questions about Istanbul in general if they came up during our stay.
Nico and his place were great! The apt is in a fantastic area of old Istanbul meets new, close to everything. The apt is cool and comfortable. Nico was a wonderful host, answered all our questions and helped us untangle Istanbul upon arrival. He was also available for questions during our stay. Highly recommend the place!
Хорошая и недорогая квартира, расположена в удобном месте, недалеко от Таксим. Место тихое, уютные улочки, удобно к транспорту добираться (минус один, это лестницы, чтобы добраться до трамвая, но таков рельеф=). Квартира чистая, небольшая, но в 4м уместиться легко. Душ на кухне - особая прелесть, но не напрягало совершенно.) Супермаркет рядом в паре шагов. Встречал хозяин Нико, все объяснил, показал, рассказал. Быстро реагирует на просьбы. Очень приятный в общении, любит магнитики из разных стран,)
Good and inexpensive apartment located in a convenient location, close to Taksim. The place is quiet, cozy streets, convenient to transport to get . The apartment is clean, small but easily fit in the 4th. Shower in the kitchen - a special charm, but not bothered at all.) Supermarket close a few steps. Met the owner Nico explained everything, showed told. Responds quickly to requests. Very pleasant to talk to, loves magnets from different countries)
The appartment was great. My partner and I stay there and we founded the place clean, confortable and quiet. The kitchen could be small for a family but for a couple it's enough. The location is great, very close to Taksim and Istiklal Cadessi and many other places to eat something or go out in the night and at the same time in a very peacefull area. Ahmet and Nico were very friendly and the checking and the check out very easy.
Nico e Ahmet. Due persone meravigliose, due cittadini del mondo e di Istanbul. Amano la loro città e si capisce, sanno davvero tutto e ti sanno consigliare. L' appartamento è in una zona molto verde e quieta, piena di gatti (che io adoro). E' in un seminterrato ma non è né buio né umido, il WI-FI funziona sempre, l' appartamento è comodo al metro e ai bar, discoteche, hammam della zona. Nico è stato gentilissimo e lo dico non perché è italiano come me ma perché se lo è davvero meritato. Grazie di cuore davvero ragazzi! A presto.
Nice, clean and cosy apartment in a very nice neighbourhood with cute cafes and galleries, supermarket around the corner, just a short walk to Taksim square and Istiklal street! The host Nico is very friendy, helpful and always available for any kinds of questions.

I am Nico and I am italian.
I live in this wonderful town since 2011
I love this amazing town from my first visit and i falled in love with at first sight so this is why I decided to move here.
I m renting flats with my turkish work partner Ahmet and I really love my job because I have the chance to meet people coming from all over the world and sometimes I like to drink a cup of tea with my guests and talking about our countries and many other subjects, in this way it is like I can travel all around the world staying here in Istanbul....without moving,
I am also a traveller and as I can I like to book a last minute flight discovering new countries
I like swiming, reading, listening music and watching documentaries is one of my favourite things.
I love animals...I love my dog Thelma and I miss her because she is in Italy with my mother, but I m sure she is better with my mum than with me, because my mother is cooking for her fresh meat every day:)
I m able to talk italian, english, spanish, french and now after 2 years living here I can say that my turkish is not really bad....but still learning :-)
I hope you to be my guest, and I will do my best to let you feel home!
