There is not a specific house rule. I expect my guests to take care of my apartment like their apartment.
Nous avons passé un agréable séjour à Istanbul dans ce petit appartement très bien situé. Il est à la fois au coeur de la ville et en retrait du bruit .. très bien pour passer des nuits au calme! Nous avons été très bien accueillis par l'hôte et n'avons manqués de rien. Istanbul est une ville sublime! Merci
Nico has been a great host, he gave us a nice welcome to Istanbul and has been quite helpful with tips and hints for the city. The apartment is all one needs for a couple of days, centrally located and nicely furnished! I can honestly recommend to stay at Nico's place!
Nico was a very nice guy, he picked us up at a point near the apartment. There was everything we needed for the week: even for some easy cooking. The location was good, not too far from Istiklal street and we could easily walk to many of the main tourist attractions as well as find some cosy and nice places to eat or have a coffee. All in all a very nice place in a very good location, thanks Nico!
Nico was a great host ,very helpful from the time I booked and it was great to know he was only a call away if I should of needed any help or advice, the apartment is in a really interesting area with a few small shops and a kebab cafe just around the corner all open late.
I felt safe in the area at all times and really enjoyed viewing local life with the shops bars and resturants of beyoglu of a few min walk away yet not feeling in tourist .
The apartment was very compact insize perfect for a couple but can sleep up to 4 it provided me with everything I wanted of a city stay ,was easy to keep warm and plenty of hot water at all times . The kitchen area is well equipped to cook simple meals and snacks should you wish and a pleasant table chairs by the window was also a bonus I slept very well with no traffic nose . I recommend the apartment for those looking to feel part of this pleasant local area while still wishing to be very close to the center of things and really provides good value for money . I am planning on rebooking this little nest of a apartment for my return to Istanbul next month
We had a really great time at Nico's apartement. Its location is great. Istiklal is right around the corner; to taksim it takes you about 15 minutes and you can even walk to Sultanahmet, which will take you about half an hour. The apartement is fully equipped (towels, sheets, hairdrayer, umbrellas, kitchen stuff). There is a small 24h grocery store just around the corner, which we found really convenient. One downside of the apartement might be the bathroom. It is very small and quite old so there are some black stains and damp spots in the shower. However, it didnt bother us, especially since the the rent for the apartement is really cheap. Hence, the apartement is definitely good value for money. Most importantly, however, we have to mention Nico's hospitality and helpfulness. He really is the perfect host. He was always there for us! So all in all, we definitely recommend Nicos apartement!
A very small but nice flat.
The atmosphere was very good.
If you won't stay all the time in the Flat than It's okay for max. 4 people but definitely not more.
About Nico, he is very very nice and funny :) He welcome us friendly.
Next time we would rent the flat again :)

About the Host, Nico
I am Nico and I am italian.
I live in this wonderful town since 2011
I love this amazing town from my first visit and i falled in love with at first sight so this is why I decided to move here.
I m renting flats with my turkish work partner Ahmet and I really love my job because I have the chance to meet people coming from all over the world and sometimes I like to drink a cup of tea with my guests and talking about our countries and many other subjects, in this way it is like I can travel all around the world staying here in Istanbul....without moving,
I am also a traveller and as I can I like to book a last minute flight discovering new countries
I like swiming, reading, listening music and watching documentaries is one of my favourite things.
I love animals...I love my dog Thelma and I miss her because she is in Italy with my mother, but I m sure she is better with my mum than with me, because my mother is cooking for her fresh meat every day:)
I m able to talk italian, english, spanish, french and now after 2 years living here I can say that my turkish is not really bad....but still learning :-)
I hope you to be my guest, and I will do my best to let you feel home!
