I stayed more than a month in Martin's apartment and I can assure any one that it is excellent and exactly as described and shown in the photos, that Cihangir is a fantastic place to live and finally that Martin him self is the best host someone like me can wish.
Thanks again and looking forward for my next visit to Istanbul
It was wonderful! Everything as described and Martin is the utmost and best host! I am looking forward to working with him again.
The apartment location is perfect for visiting the city. I liked the location in cihangir: the area is very quite and safe not being far from the main attraction..there are many nice restaurants and bar in the area and it is very close to taksim square area. You can walk to the old town or just walk down the road and get a tram: very convenient and fast! I like the idea of not being in the middle of crowd and turistic areas. It was an insight in the real life in Istanbul which, by the way, is an amzaing city!
Martin's apartment is in a fabulous location near the Museum of Innocence (our favourite museum!). We loved staying here as the apartment is bright and breezy with everything you could possibly need - just like at home. The best bit was eating breakfast on the roof terrace!
Martin met us from our bus at Taksim Square, settled us in, then took us for a tour of the area. We wandered past cafes, bars and supermarkets as he gave us the local lowdown on what's what and where in Istanbul. It was lovely to share a raki before he left us to enjoy our 10 days in Istanbul.
I think we'd like to go back :)
Very comfortable stay at martins place. It is a very good located and nice apartment with everything you need in it. I recommend this apartment for anybody who want to enjoy istanbul.
Thanks martin for your hospitality and bother.
Martin was very helpful when my schedule changed, and he was incredibly nice and understanding about everything. The apartment itself was in a very interesting part of town, every day my husband and I could walk down to the water. The bedroom and bathroom were very clean and comfortable, as well as the living room space. The apartment was pristine. But what was most helpful was Martin himself, who was incredibly understanding and accommodating when my travel plans changed.
We stayed 5 weeks in that flat since we attended a language-course in Istanbul at Dilmer. We enjoyed our accomodation there very much. Martin is a great host, very kind and helpful. The location is super, only short walks to Taksim (Metro etc.) and Kabatas (boat and tram). Moreover it is relatively quiet and the flat is equipped with all necessary things. We really felt at home! So, if we come back to Istanbul we are quite sure to ask for that flat again.
Excellent. The flat is very quiet, clean and inviting. We felt like at home and would come again soon. The area is fine and closed to everything.
We really enjoyed our stay in this flat and highly recommend it.
Thank you Martin.
We stayed for 6 lovely days at Martin's place. The apartment was cozy, clean, had all the facilities we needed and comes with a shared terrace on the rooftop of the building perfect for a late-night drink.
It's located in a quiet street in a very fine neighbourhood of Taksim and has an abundance of nice cafe's and restaurants on walking distance. We absolutely adored the area!
It was great having Martin as our host. He's very easy going, attentive and really helped us to experience Istanbul to the fullest by e.g. making a reservation at a Hamam for a true Turkish massage. He also welcomed us with a little tour, gave us excellent recommendations and shared some of the city's history with us. Communicating with him before arrival and during the stay was a breeze.
Our Istanbul experience wouldn't have been the same without this top host.
Big thanks from the both of us and we hope to see you in Berlin!
