Martin's flat was a perfect haven from the chaos of Istanbul - we loved our stay here! The apartment is very spacious, clean, filled with light and really felt like home. It's located on a quiet street in Cihangir, a hip neighbourhood full of great cafes, places to dance or enjoy a long Turkish brunch (I loved Martin's recommendations!). Martin was an incredibly kind and welcoming host and so helpful in getting us oriented. I'd love to stay here again next time I'm in Istanbul.
Martin's apartment was just as it seems in the pictures, or even better. very clean and we found everything we needed during our stay. the best thing about the flat was the location in nice Cihangir area, yet it was close enough to walk to e.g. Istiklal. Quiet street but nice restaurants and grocery stores nearby. Communication with Martin worked without problems, also his friend was there to let us in on the day of arrival. totally recommended!
Though we did not meet our host, we spoke on the phone and communicated via email several times during the week we stayed there. He was as helpful and welcoming as one can be via those channels. It was a shame not to meet him. The apartment itself was simple and lovely. And the neighborhood was cute and great and accessible with loads of little restaurants and cafes all within a 10 minute walk.
The building it self is a tiny bit on the dingy side, but we didn't mind at all.
Martin was very helpful, the flat was very nice, the neighborhood is quiet. The location is not too far from metro stations. We enjoyed our stay very much.
What a great experience!!The flat is great, even better than I expected...
Cihangir, the area, is amazing, very well served and full of amazing little shops, bars and restaurants. Walking distance to Taksim and the Istiklal it is also very well connected to the metro, tram or boat.
Martin was a great host, although we didn't have a chance to meet, he was very caring and had quickly responded to any doubt or possible issue...he also gave us some very useful tips on where to go. We discovered places that we would not have found without his help.
It all ran very smoothly. Highly recommended!
I staid at Martin's house for 5 weeks. The location of the building was really nice and the neighbourhood was safe ( which is an importent thing for Istanbul I think). Although Martin was not there, his friend helped me with everything and also Martin returned to my massages as fast as he can. Also the house was really clean and causey
Martin was a great host, even though he was unfortunately out of town during our stay. There was an unfortunate problem with the hot water heater our first day, but Martin took care of it and even refunded us 50 Euros to make up for the slight inconvenience of a day without hot water. His apartment is exactly as advertised and perfectly located in the lovely neighbourhood of Cihangir, It's a less than ten minute walk to Taksim Square, and even closer to the cafes and restaurants in the area. Martin was in contact with us over the phone throughout our stay, and we could not have asked for a better experience.

I was born and raised in Sweden, but since several years Im residing in Istanbul most of the year. I like travelling, socialicing, meeting new people. Maybe not very unusual interests for a member of Airbnb ;=)
For me it is very important that my guests have a pleasant stay, which you will see if you decide to spend some days or longer at my place.
