We spend four day's in this apartment and enjoyed it very much. Communication with Shellie was faultless. She conveniently arranged transport from and to the airport. When Alitalia lost our suitcase , her help was very welcome , as she speaks Turkish and could be an intermediary.
The apartment was not too big , but big enough for a family of four. The area is great and very central and close to a tram stop.
We highly recommend Shellie and her apartment.
Flat was lovely, exactly as photographed- and had everything we needed. Great location, and Shellie was really efficient when we made the booking and really helpful on arrival- gave us lots of advice about restaurants, sightseeing, and left a travelcard available for us to use. The pick up at the airport made life really easy. And the shower is excellent!
The house was very convenient.
in the center of cihangir with many restaurants and bars. the neighborhood had everything that a tourist needed.
Shellie always take care of everything.
I like Istanbul and I have been many times.
I think this neighborhood is the best place for the tourists.
I recommend the house and the place to have a good holidays.
Thank you very much for the opportunity to stay at your place. The apartment is very well situated, clean and cosy with a lot of great coffees and restaurants just around the corner. The shopping street is just around 10 minutes away.
Also the airport pick up was just great.
Thank you for everything,
Shellie was extremely helpful both before our trip, and also during our somewhat chaotic arrival. The apartment is spacious and well-located with good local restaurants. It's a pleasant 20-minute walk to the Topkapi Palace across Galata bridge, or there's a tram at the bottom of the hill. I would certainly recommend staying here.
Shellie has been a perfect host: kindest, nice and helpful. Her flat is full equipped to feel at home. Clear, cozy, well appointed, full of light even if is a first floor, with two bathrooms and a kitchen corner with all you need.
Shellie has left for us milk and jam in the fridge, bread, cookies and fruits.
In the bathroom there were soft towels and a little kit with shampoo and soap.
In the bedroom was a nice balcony and a beatiful view on trees.
And I like so much the withe wood floor, so warm!
Cihangir is full of restaurants, cafè and markets and it's 10 minute a walk from tram stop Tophane and from Istiklal Caddesi and Galata Tower.
Thank you Shellie!
We spent a week at Shellie's flat in Istanbul. The location is absolutely fantastic, first of all because the area around is nice, safe and full of cafè and good restaurant. Besides, the flat is in a very strategic position to reach all the most important attractions in Istanbul.
We stayed there with our two children (9 and 6 years old): the space of the flat is very well organized and clean. Shellie organized for us the transfer from and for the airport, and her assistant took care of us when we arrived. So, we really had a fantastic experience in Istanbul (one of the most beautiful place we've ever been).
