  • This was my first time staying with a host on Airbnb (as opposed to renting an entire apartment) and I was a bit nervous as this host had no previous reviews. I can confidently say that this is one of the best Airbnb experiences I've had and discovered that the lack of reviews is because the apartment is a bit off the beaten tourist track. That said, it is in one of the nicest and most affluent Istanbul areas, just 2min away from the waterfront and 5min away from a promenade with restaurants, cafes, shops. It's very close to the Sabanci museum and easily accessible by public transport.

    Ece was very helpful in sending me directions, pointing out the cheapest/quickest way of getting to her place and guiding the cab driver. The apartment looks even better in real life with a Bosphorus view, a garden, a serene and beautiful atmosphere. She greeted me with tea and Turkish pastries and showed me around. The bedroom is spacious and very clean (as is the whole apartment). Ece is a perfect hostess providing fresh towels every 2 days and making a delicious traditional breakfast every morning. She is an accomplished cook and can also cook dinner, but I couldn't take advantage of this as I was in Istanbul for work and very busy. That being said, the hostess respected my privacy completely and I was able to come and go and go about my business as I wished without feeling like I was disturbing her.

    I would definitely recommend staying with Ece next time you're in Istanbul and seeing it from a local's perspective-- there are no tourists around and plenty to see and experience in this beautiful neighborhood. It's an ideal place for those who already know the historic center and Istiklal/Taksim areas and want to get to know the city better and take advantage of the water front.
