Flat is exactly as advertised and is in a fantastic location, very central and close to transport links. Only downside is that this place has paper thin walls and you can hear absolutely everything from the flat next door, the tenants of which were very noisy throughout our stay. This was the only downside, the actual flat is great.
Soner and his staff were WONDERFUL - very helpful and accommodating, unfortunately my experience in the flat was not. I left after my first night (was booked for two) due in large part to the cigarette smoke and noise form my neighbors, and opted to stay in a local hotel. This was the first negative AirBnB experience I have had. The staff were very helpful in addressing the problems I had below, and I was offered a reduced rate for a return visit, but no refund for the second night even though I had left the flat. I would recommend Soner's company but would be diligent to ask about specifics of the flat to make sure you get what you are looking for.
-the area - very central - easy to access - great location
-the staff - very helpful - the best part
-the flat appears to have been subdivided from a larger apartment, and there were large open spaces between the two units along the cabinets they had installed in the wall that allowed light, sound, and significant amounts of cigarette smoke come in from next door
-no hot water the first day - it was fixed by a staff member and then offline again a few hours later
-wifi was not usable using either a laptop or iPhone unless standing in the hallway outside the flat
-insects in the bed upon waking up
The listing was very accurate, and the neighborhood was exactly what we wanted. As two young women traveling together, we felt much safer knowing there was a police station on our street and that we were so close to the busy shopping area of Istaklal Street. The flat itself was fantastic, a little small but for one or two people it was perfect. The air conditioning was a godsend, it worked perfectly and kept us cool in the heat. Soner and co. were very, very helpful and responded promptly to any problem we had, including finding us another apartment of theirs once our reservation was complete and the next place we were moving to proved to be very very scary and unsafe.
Thanks so much guys!
My boyfriend and I spent 7 nights at Soner's apartment. It was very nice, a little bit smaller than you would expect, but very clean and well furnished!
The best thing about the place is the location: very close to Istiklal Caddesi, perfect for young people who wish to go for a drink at night around Tophane, Chihangir, Shishane,Taksim and Galata districts.
Also very safe since it is right next to a police station!
The hosts were very nice and welcoming. Internet connection worked fine.
Small downsides: it gets very warm in the room during the summer (there's air conditioning, but I personally get sick if I keep it on all night!) + we didn't have enough toilet paper in the room
Host were nice as they were flexible with our check in time. Location is great close to shops, bars and restaurant. The only let down for us was that the wall between the next door neighbour and our were really thin and at night we would make up when the guy next door was on the phone. It would sound like he is talking on his phone from our room, and also again maybe due to this thin wall I could smell the cigaret smells which would make really hard for me to sleep. If you are smoker and happy to stay out till late then this is a good room. Specially it's good for its value.
La ubicación es excelente, a dos pasos de Taksim Square pero suficientemente alejado para que no moleste el ruido. El apartamento es pequeño pero está muy bien apañado, nuevo, limpio y cómodo.
Lo recomiendo totalmente porque se portaron de maravilla con nosotros. El único aspecto a mencionar es que el teléfono de emergencias solo está disponible de 9.00 a 18.00, así que por ejemplo nos cortaron la luz por la noche o cortaron el agua (en varios edificios, nada que ver con los apartamentos, como supimos después) y no hubo forma de hacerse con nadie en medio de la noche.
le logement était globalement dans un bon quartier, mais aucun panneau ni indication n'est présent pour retrouver l'appartement. A notre arrivée, l'hôte n'était pas la, et il était injoignable par telephone ou internet. Nous avons donc attendu sur le pas de la porte. Heureusement, une demi heure plus tard, quelqu'un est arrivé par hasard et nous a accueilli. Les photos de l'appartement sont bien trompeuses car la salle de bains est salle (joints noirs), l'eau n'est pas toujours opérationnelle et le ménage laisse à désirer. Enfin, nous entendions la totalité de ce qui se passait dans l'appartement voisin et nous nous sommes rendus compte que lorsqu'on tirait une armoire, on pouvait rentrer directement chez le voisin par une ouverture plus large que la taille d'une porte... en période de ramadan, nous avons donc profité de tous les repas pris jusqu'a 3h du matin et de la télé jusqu'a 5h...je ne le recommanderais à personne !
