The flat is perfectly located, next to Istiktal street, the metro station, funicular and tramway. You can reach easily every place in Istanbul from here. The decoration is beautiful. Ali is also a great host, helps me whenever I have a question or problem. I recommand the flat for your stay in Istanbul for short or long term!

I definitely want to stay in this place every time I come back to Istanbul. The location is perfect, near to all means of transportation, restaurants, bars, shops although it's in a very quiet street. The room is clean and comfortable.

Ali is a wonderful host, always helpful, kind and sure to make certain everything is going well. He's happy to answer any questions you might have. The apartment is excellent, in a prime location just off Istiklal, but down a side street that isn't too loud or busy so you can have some peace and get a good night's sleep! It's spacious and the facilities, such as the kitchen and communal area, are great. The cleaner comes every fortnight so it's also kept well and is generally clean and hygienic. It's also very safe. The other rooms are also rented out so it's a good way to meet other people too! I would definitely stay here again and would highly recommend it, whether for a short stay or a more extended one, as it feels like a home away from home.

I stayed in the orange room for one month, and I had a very good time. Here are the good points of this place : - great location : the house is just in front of a school, with guards and security cameras, so the street is very safe. - just one minute walk from Istiklal street and from the Shishane metro station. - the decoration of the flat is lovely, and it has everything you may need, like a dishwasher or a washing-machine. - the orange room is big, with a big mirror and 2 large closets, the room gets a lot of natural light and the bed is comfortable. - Ali is a very nice guest, who will do everything he can to make your stay perfect ! (For instance, when the weather was crazy hot, he came to the flat to offer us fans) - the shared areas are a great way to meet people, and make the flat a very lively place. And here are the few bad points : - the bathroom smells bad in the morning because the shower must be quite old. - as a shared flat, your rommates may be more or less careful about the cleanness of it, and the cleaning lady is not a big help. So if you want to live in a very clean place, you'll have to do most of the cleaning. - this is not what you can call a quiet place, because you will hear your rommates talking or eating in the kitchen, the noise of the school across the street, a few people in the street, and at night, dozens of cats howling or fighting. You'll have to get used to it ! But overall, I had a very pleasant time there and I would definitely recommend this place ! (but maybe not if you want to work or study in calm, because it's still not very quiet.)

We went to Ali's house Aug. 14 to 17 and then returned a day early to leave for Italy and we were very very good! The location of the apartment is perfect, a short walk from the main street by the locals, the best restaurants and Taksim Square! The rooms are very neat and clean! Ali is a very nice guy, helpful and very thoughtful! He called taxi for us and last night we cooked Italian pasta in company and then go out for a drink together. I highly recommend everyone to stay at the home of Ali, you'll be very happy. I will definitely return to Ali's house for my future stays in Istanbul. Francesca e Chiara from Italy

Ali is a very professional host. Unfortunately Ali was in a major car accident the day before I arrived but he still got in touch with me from the hospital to let me know he had arranged for a friend to meet me on arrival. This just goes to show you how dedicated and professional he is. His friend was very hospitable and gave me a tour of the area which is the perfect location to stay in Istanbul. The apartment itself is actually 2 floors that house separate rooms, I stayed in the Orange room on the 2nd floor. The room was great, exactly like the pictures, had a windows for fresh air and lots of storage space. At the time I stayed there, there was only 1 other person in the house and she was long term guest. I didn't use the shared areas much but there is a TV and you get your own shelf in the fridge which is useful. The shower is somewhat small but Ali even provides towels for guests, Free WiFi throughout the apartment with good speed. The location just off Istiklal street near Tunel is perfect and makes it very convenient for everything. Istiklal street for shopping, nightlife and and food at all hours. A downhill walk to Galta tower and bridge, Sultanahmet and old Istnbaul. Easy to get to from the airport bus that drops you in Taksim square (15 minute walk to the apartment). I greatly enjoyed my stay and definitely recommend Ali and his apartment.
