This place is amazing! Safak is a great host; he met us a bit early and was very gracious about it. The apartment itself is large and well appointed. A comfortable bed, and a nice shower with very good pressure. Of course, you stay here for the unbelievable views! Would love to spend more time here!
The apartment is just in front of Galata tower, best location, best view, bigger than the picture, very clean,very safe, very quite, and very convenient to all the grocery stores, tram station and nice restaurants. The Host Safak is a very nice person too. Although the apartment is in 5th floor and no lift for the luggage, Safak helped us with our luggage and carried them up to the 5th floor. I do recommend this lovely apartment in Istanbul.
Our stay in Istanbul was almost perfect, and this apartment is a big reason why. First off, Safak is very friendly and helpful. He will genuinely try to help you to the maximum of his capabilities if you have any requests or questions. He made us feel very welcome in Istanbul as opposed to the impersonal welcome you sometimes get in ‘normal’ hotels. His recommendations for restaurants in the neighbourhoud were also spot on. Only your own mum cooks better than the people at Galata Kitchen.
As for the apartment, the view and location are perfect. You can see the Galata tower in all its glory from your bed, and you have a very nice view overlooking the small square. The apartment is spacious, clean and well equipped. The shower has very good water pressure, a feature very much appreciated by my better half. When in Istanbul again, we will most likely return to Safak and his apartments!
Safak haben wir nicht kennengelernt,die Wohnung war so wie wie wir sie uns vorgestellt haben,Central mitten im geschehen,perfekte Lage
Das Stiegenhaus:Eng 180Treppen die es gilt zu Bewältigen nix für alte Leute
Clima:Braucht eine Wartung "Laut"
Man sollte immer einen Wasserkübel bereitstellen,wir hatten 2 mal 9 Stunden kein Wasser
Wohnung war sauber
Es hatt uns gefallen jederzeit wieder........
Safak is an excellent host. Despite our late arrival close to mid-night he was there to greet us and also give us some good pointers on the local sight seeing places. The apartment itself is very convenient and in one of the best locations of Istanbul. Overall, me and my better half thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
