Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • Nice place, comfy beds, great views. Can get a bit warm in the apartment during the day but there are three balconies to chill out on, and it's fine at night with the fans running. The apartment is up five steep flights of stairs, so you may want to consider that if you have lots of luggage or kids in tow. Very centrally located for restaurants, bars, and clubs. Also within easy walking distance of all the major tourist attractions - Grand Bazaar and Spice Market, Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia, etc. And it is very easy to get to from the airport via subway/tram or shuttle bus (journey time is about an hour from Ataturk). Thanks Yuxel! :)

  • La experiencia en este alojamiento ha sido excelente, muy bien situado, permite ir a pie a los sitios de interés. El anfitrión super atento dando toda la información necesaria para desenvolverte por la ciudad. Fue una pena no haber podido disfrutar más tiempo de la casa.

  • Yuxel war ein großartiger Gastgeber. Zuverlässig, freundlich, hilfsbereit und jederzeit ansprechbar machte er unseren Istanbul-Aufenthalt zum Genuss. Wir haben ruhig geschlafen, die Wohnung bietet Platz genug und alle Geräte funktionierten - was will man mehr?
    Die Wohnung liegt wie beschrieben im 5. Stock ganz nah am Galataturm in der Elektrikergasse, ein langer Weg nach oben erwartet euch. Kleine Läden sind in der Nähe.

  • Yuxel was the perfect host. Greeted us with open arms at a little cosy café that his family runs. Took good time to point out some great places on the city map and helped us booking time at the local hamam. The flat was exactly as on the pictures, and perfect for 3-4 persons, we were 3 so we had plenty of space. Loved sitting on the balcony drinking morning coffee in the sun. I can definitely recommend the place to other guest who are interested in staying at a perfect central flat in Istanbul.

  • Idealement situé, proche d'un site remarquable, du métro et des quais de bateau. Certes les escaliers sont éprouvants mais l'appartement offre une vue remarquable, un aménagement agréable et une ambiance chaleureuse. Appartement conforme à la description, rien à redire. L’hôte nous a accueilli parfaitement, nous a remis un plan du quartier en nous précisant les sites qu 'ils nous conseillent de voir et les sites que nous désirions voir. Nous recommandons donc vivement cet appartement.

  • The apartment is in need of a serious tune-up. The pictures are dated and do not truly represent how the apartment looks now. The kitchen was inadequate with very few supplies, including empty salt and pepper shakers, no dish towels or coffee maker.

    This apartment has a lot of potential, as does Yuxel. I fear the apartment has been forgotten over the years with little upkeep or attention. Worth looking around for another place is you are interested in a more comfortable apartment for your visit to Istanbul.

  • We would like to thank Yuxel for taking care about everything and letting us stay in his downtown apartment in Istanbul. The apartment is located in superb location, close to ancient tower of Galata, surrounded by small butique shops, cafes and restaurants which makes it very convenient and confortable to stay. Apartment is clean, spacy and located in top floor (will make you more fit), which has brilliant view. Apartment has 2 medium sized balconies to enjoy morning coffee or tea and plan you city trips. Owner of apartment has prepared everything for arrival on time and we did not have any problems and could enjoy our stay. Apartment has 2 bedrooms and 1 living room for evening chats, 1 full and 1 semi bathroom, wooden flooring and all amenities in kitchen. We would definately stay in this apartment once again and can reccomend to anybody.
