  • Our stay here was lovely. Yesim was incredibly helpful. She organised transport to and from the airport for us and provided us with all the information we needed for our stay. The apartment itself is gorgeous. The view is worth a million dollars. For any parents - it's a very child friendly apartment. We have a 2 year old and had no problems letting him explore. We were 5 adults and toddler and had plently of room. Beds were incredibily comfortable. The apartment has a lovely homely feel to it. I would definitely recommend this to anyone.

    It has 3 comfortable rooms with heater and air-conditioner,1 bath room, 2
    restrooms,
    1 stylish living room, 1 diving room and a balcony with stunning sea-view
    and city-view.

    around the Istanbul by metro.
    If you want to go Taksim for shopping, just minutes walk to arrive.
    Our group of six had a very comfortable vacation here.
    Thanks for the great help of our friendly host, they provide lots of
    information for us
    and replenish all complements we need. Highly recommend this wonderful

  • Yeshim's apartment was great. Incredibly spacious with a BEAUTIFUL view! The apartment is located just a short walk to Taksim square (maybe 5-7 minutes) and is up the hill from the subway (also about 5-7 minutes). I personally prefer to not be in central, more touristy locations, so I really liked that the apartment was in more of a neighborhood area yet was still really conveniently located to transportation so that we could very easily see and do all we wanted to in Istanbul. We arrived really early, around 4 or 5am, but Yeshim arranged our taxi in advance and was there to greet us when we arrive around 6am. She gave us information about the surrounding neighborhood along with suggestions for what to do and directions on how to get there (in a printed guide). I would love to stay here again next time I am in Istanbul!

  • Location! Location! Location! The proximity of the property to Taksim Square but in a quiet neighbourhood makes it perfect. We called on Yesim & Sasha to help us out with a small problem (not with the apartment) and they responded without hesitation. Recommended!

  • Overall we had a very positive experience.

    The apartment is in a great location in Beyoglu. It’s only a few hundred meters from Taksim and Istiklal, but on quiet side street where you would never know you’re in the heart of the city. It was great to be in a real neighborhood instead of one of the hotels in tourist filled Sultanahmet. Getting to the main tourist sites is easy though. With the tram you can get to Topkapi, Hagia Sophia, the blue mosque and other sites in just a few minutes.

    The apartment is spacious and the view is as advertised. The apartment does show a few nicks and bruises from many people having stayed there, but certainly it is in good condition overall.

    The neighborhood is very hilly. So if you are not in shape to climb a lot, it is probably not the place for you. Also, be prepared for certain inconveniences that come with Istanbul. The most obvious one during our one week stay was a couple of water outages. The longest lasted a few hours and the other just a few minutes. I understand that this is a common occurrence in Istanbul, and not a big deal.

    Also, while the apartment has two air conditioning units, in the summer they are not adequate to keep the whole apartment at coolness levels you might be used in the US. You can open the windows though and usually there is a nice breeze off the Bosphorus. Also, the main bedroom has its own A/C unit and by closing the bedroom door you can keep it as cold as you want. I had wonderful nights of sleep in the cool bedroom. Also I found mattress and blankets to be of high quality. Everything was also nice and clean.

    Yesmin was a great host. She responded immediately to our booking, was there to show the apartment to us and was available for questions and concerns at a moment’s notice. One of the best things about our stay was a listing of inside information to Istanbul created by our hosts. It’s a 15-20 page simple guide that lists a ton of local restaurants (and other stuff). This was invaluable. There were all kinds of awesome restaurants on there that we would have never found and would not be listed in your Istanbul guide book. It was a treat to eat a nice restaurants with locals night after night.

    So overall a great experience and I definitely recommend the apartment.

  • If you want a great stay in Istanbul then you can't go wrong with this great apartment. Yesim was warm and friendly and gave lots of advice on where to go and what to see (and avoid). Booking was easy and communication was great.

    The apartment itself is exactly as the pictures paint it. The balcony overlooking the bosphous is worth booking the apartment for alone. The rooms were clean and the beds comfortable. The shower works well. The neighbourhood is quiet with just the sounds of life drifting on the breeze.

    The tram is about 5 minutes walk away downhill, taksim about 8 minutes uphill Plenty of small shops are around for grocery stuff. Yesmin will give you a map showing where everything is.

    Yesmin and her husband own well regarded restuarants and clubs and have great contacts that they're happy to share (sadly we didn't have time to go to the 360).

    This was the first time we used airbnb and it won't be our last.
