I rented Irem's place for my boyfriend, but I was there for check in and check out so I saw the place. It is a very comfortable and charming room, and Irem's father, who let us in, was very kind and helpful. We never met Irem, but she is very responsive and was very gracious in responding to our flexible check in and check out requests. The apartment is extremely centrally located, and very close to the Sisli metro station and to the Cevahir mall. My boyfriend felt really comfortable here. A sincere thank you to both Irem and to her father from both of us! We recommend this apartment to anyone!
The bed was super comfortable. I slept like an angel! Hasan is a very nice guy. Quiet and friendly.
He allowed me to use the washing machine, which was very helpful after 10 days of travelling.
Had a great stay in total.
We are very glad to share our great experience from our stay in Irem's apartment. Everything was as described and explained in all other reviews. Nice and lovely place, great location. We met only Irem's father and Hasan, however we definitely will use Irem's offer again.
The place is very close to big mall, metro station, buss stations. You can go everywhere from this location usually with one transport, or max with one more interchange. There is information kiosk just in front the mall, next to the metro station, where you can ask for public transport map and information about buses or other things. The street behind the mall (where Irem's apartment is) is quiet and safe.
We are glad with our choice. Many thanx.
It is an apartment shared by a long term tenant, father of the owner who uses it as a Dental clinic. One room is for the long term tenant, another room for the denture clinic and the third room is available for rent. Common lobby which is used as clinic reception during day time. Common bath room. The apartment is on 3rd floor with no elevators. Nice people including the long term tenant who is polite and helpful in guiding etc. When I arrived I could not contact the landlady and had to find my own way to the place. Fortunately there was a lady in the Real Estate office on the ground floor who called father of the landlady and thus I got in.
Overall it is B&B centrally located but do not expect fancy perks. Good for those who are on budget and want to avoid Hotel charges and extras.
I had a great stay! The room is as in the picture: bright and nice. The communication with Irem was perfect. The long-term guest Hassan waited for me on my arrival. I was later than expected, but that wasn't a problem. He showed me around and was very hospitable. Clean towels were put on the bed. There was a rechargeable travel card I could use during my stay.
The apartment itself is ideally located if you're planning to move around Taksim and surrounding places. It is quiet, day and night. And I felt safe, also when I came home after midnight.
Irem's parents are extremely friendly. Irem's father is a dentist and has a patient room in the apartment. In the week that I stayed I only saw two patients, but that all went on so quietly that it almost seemed as if no one was there.
All in all a recommendable place and one I'd like to come back to!
Lovely, bright clean apartment in Sisli right next to the ever so crowded Cevahir shopping mall. There is a Starbucks in the Cevahir square and infront of that the bus and Metro station, all walking distance from the apartment.
Hasan, the resident host, is a very kind and hospitable host. He was very helpful with directions and general information about transportation and the main sites. He's also a great conversationalist and humorous.
The neighborhood was surprisingly quiet for its location. Istanbul is a densely populated city so noise is to be expected, but it was minimal for a holiday week.
If you take a Macbook laptop it may or may not connect to the network. Mine only did for about 30 minutes....but hey, I was on vacation.
The room is very clean and airy and is ideally located near shops and malls of sisli. I had a great time staying there. Irem is a kind and generous host and I definitely will be going back. Thanks Irem!
Irem's place was easy to get to from Ataturk airport, as the Havatas bus goes directly from the airport to Taksim for only 10 Lira and it takes about 1 hour in traffic, 45 minutes without traffic. Then it is easy to take a taxi or the metro from Taksim to the Cevahir Mall and Irem gives good directions for this. We decided to take a taxi first from Taksim since we didn't know the area well and the taxi driver we had took a roundabout route to get a higher fare, which was unfortunate, but we learned our lesson and took the subway back to Taksim when we had to go to the airport.
The apartment and is very nice with a great view, as others have said. The accommodations are perfect for the easy and economical traveler and had everything we needed. We felt very comfortable for our three night stay there.
I wasn't able to meet Irem because my flight was two hours delayed and we got in much later than anticipated and she tried to wait for us as long as she could, but when she had to leave, she made arrangements with Hasan to let us in and give us the keys. I really appreciated Irem's time and Hasan's time to do this for us. We also had a chance to meet Irem's father, Mustafa, and he is very nice.
Also, Hasan showed us where and how to purchase a metro card and was very helpful showing us around the mall for a bit and answering some questions we had. We really appreciated his help with this, as we may not have been able to do this on our own! We enjoyed talking to him about his time in Istanbul and his admirable plans for the future.
Thank you, Irem, Hasan, and Mustafa!
Irem was a helpful and well communicating host, and resolved some issues that happened during our stay efficiently and fast. The roommate Hasan is very polite and also a great help; gave us lots of tips for sightseeing.
Overall we had a pleasant stay and would come here again.
I had a lovely time staying in Irem's apartment in Istanbul. She and her family are so kind and made me feel sooo welcome. Mustafa, her father, and Hassan, the other renter, were both very helpful and made me feel at home in Istanbul. The apartment is clean, neat, and comfortable. And the view is beautiful! The location is safe and pretty close to everything. It's about a ten minute ride to Taksim and 20 minutes to Sultanahmet where the Hagia Sofia and Blue Mosque are. But it was really nice staying in a less touristy area. I had so much fun and hope to go back someday. I recommend her place to any traveler!
