Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Good location and everything that you need. View was fab and reason we booked. Thanks for great stay and late check in.

    April 2014
  • This is a lovely appartment in a very attractive area. We loved spending some days there. The view on Galata Tower is amazing. I will come back and will recommend the appartment to most of my friends, but not to all. If you do not like climbing stairs, then you should not rent the flat (4th or 5th floor). Checking in /-out was quite easy, absolutely stressless.

  • We had an absolutely wonderful stay at this beautiful apartment in Istanbul!

    We had a smooth arrival -- our plane arrived late, so we didn't get near the apartment until around midnight (via taxi). But, we asked the host at the nearby Guney Restaurant to call Volkan's cell phone, and he ran down to meet us immediately. The apartment was just as pictured, very clean with an amazing view!

    PROs of this studio:
    *amazing view of galata tower, the golden horn, hagia sophia, and the blue mosque!
    *great location -- we walked absolutely everywhere, and the galata tower ended up being nice & central, and easy to find!
    *very thoughtfully designed apartment. it had all the small touches -- hairdryer, umbrellas, tea, blankets, washer, drying rack, iron, guidebooks, towels, space heater, etc.
    *extremely comfortable bed. we slept well every single night.

    CONS (though these didn't ruin our experience at all, and most were likely temporary):
    *The apartment below was under construction, so there was lots of noise and the stairwell was very dusty. fortunately, they didn't start work until around 8:30am in the mornings, and didn't work in the evenings.
    *There was a guy sleeping in the stairwell during most of our visit. (maybe because of the construction??). He was totally harmless, but it was a little weird to step over a sleeping person when going up/down the stairs.
    *The street outside the apartment could get a little noisy at night. Though, from the 5th floor, the noise wasn't too bad. And, we expected some noise given that we were in a busy part of the city.

    A few things to note:
    *the apartment is at the top of a fairly steep hill (from the direction of galata bridge), and it is up 5 flights of stairs. so we had a workout built into our days. this was a pro for us, but some people might not enjoy the extra exercise.
    *the seafood restaurant below the apartment (Furreyya Galata Balikcisi) makes an AMAZING fish wrap (balik durum). get it.
    *we didn't feel the need to pay the entrance fee to the galata tower (6.5 euros per person) since we had such a nice view from the apartment.

    Overall, a perfect place to stay. I would highly recommend it for a couple or a single person!

  • The lovely apartment is conveniently located at a half an hour walk from Fatih in the lively Beyoglu area. My friend and I loved this studio - it was warm, cozy and clean. Unfortunately, the television didn't work and our host, Volkan, didn't manage to fix it during the 3 days we spent in Istanbul, which wouldn't be much of a problem if we weren't forced to stay at home more than we wanted to by the 3-day long pouring rain. Nonetheless, all in all we were satisfied with this apartment.

    March 2014
  • We had a fantastic time in Volkan and Safak's apartment. The view is magnificent, all the essentials are provided and checking in/out couldn't be easier. We loved the neighborhood and the location proved a perfect launching point for our exploration of the city.

    March 2014
  • Great location and view. Thanks!

    February 2014
  • We stayed at Galata studio residence.
    The location is ideal for exploring the old town.
    Galata square has some nice restaurants, friendly kebab shop owners and a 5mn walk down the hill gets you to the tram from where it's only 4 stops to the blue mosque and Hagia Sophia.
    The studio is cosy but has everything you need.
    If you are a light sleeper, bring earplugs as the surrounding area has nightlife and music.
    The stairwell is quite steep and in need of some renovation so avoid heavy luggage.
    I think that the other 2 Galata properties may have been a better choice so be sure to check those out.
    Thank you to Volkan who very kindly let us leave out suitcases at the apartment until our flight that evening!

    February 2014
  • Great location and views of Galata Tower. Volkan and his team were prompt and helpful. The apartment is comfortable and well equipped.

    February 2014
  • The hosts Volkan and his team was perfect. The best location: close to the bars and old historical streets. Beautiful Galata! Apartments were clean and there were all things we need.

    May be important: long stairs without an elevator. Don't advice big luggage.

    February 2014
  • Great spot in a fascinating district and the view is great from this studio apartment on the 4th floor. I was sorry to not meet Safak in person.
