About This Listing
Our apartment is not exactly at ”Taksim square” thanks God! But we are two Metro Stations away and 5 minutes walk home. At the back street there is bus station and the bus can take you directly to the old city where you can visit Hagia Sophia etc.
My father-in-law Selim is living there. He is really a cool guy that has many interesting stories. He will probably tell you stories from old Istanbul and make you feel as an extraordinary tourist.
At the back street there is bus station and the bus can take you directly to the old city where you can visit Hagia Sophia, Blue Mosque, Grand Bazaar and many other treasures of the incredible Istanbul where Orient meets Oxident.
10 minutes walking you can reach Nisantasi where all luxury boutiques, restaurants and cafes are situated.
If you want to go to the nearest seaside, take a cab and pay 3.- USD. Have fresh fish at the
lunch, walk around the fish market and have a “Chay” by looking amazing view of the Bosphorus.
There are plenty of supermarkets around, where you can buy anything you like for your breakfast and enjoy our balcony.
Selim speaks English, German, Swedish and he is ready to furbish you with all kinds of information to make your stay as pleasant as possible.
You will be in good hands.

Thank you Selim, Yesim and Emir for the great stay in Istanbul!
Selim is a great host. Very polite,responsive and always ready to help with all questions,with a good sense of humor. Apartment is close to metro station (about 5-7 minutes) from where you can easily reach city center. Room is very clean and tidy. Best combination of price and quality
It was great living with Selim at Yesin's place. Selim was welcoming and great to have conversations with. The location is only slightly off from Taksim and Istiklal (where you probably want to go) but really well connected and not a hassle at all! The facilities at the house were more than sufficient and everything was clean and ready for us when we arrived!
Selim ist ein warmherziger Gastgeber, der sowohl Distanz halten kann als auch hilfreich und kommunikativ. Er spricht sehr gut Englisch und auch Deutsch! Ruhige Gegend und für gehbegeisterte und auf- und abstiegsgewohnte wie uns sind auch die Hotspots Istanbuls fussläufig zu erreichen. Zimmer schlicht und prima.
We had a wonderful time in Istanbul with Selim. He is a funny and great host, who made us feel at home and was always ready to explain or discuss the political, culinairy or social aspects of borh city & country. We have warm memories of sharing drinks at the balcony.
We very much enjoyed our stay here. Selim was a wonderful host, we had great chats with him and he was able to help us discover Istanbul and better understand the city as well. Also a convenient location and comfortable space.
