About this listing
Cool and confortable with mini terrace its 5 minutes walking distance to bus station.
Hey everyone :)
My house is located in Beşiktaş district, which is one of the largest and most lively center in Istanbul.
My place is on entrance floor and located quiet area of Besiktas
You can find almost anything within walking distance. Public transits only 5 minutes by walk. Restaurants and cafes about 15 munites by walk.
It is close to the other centers of İstanbul like the Historical Peninsula, Taksim Square, Cihangir, Galata, Karaköy and even to Asian Part... You can go Beşiktaş port 10-15 minute by walk then you can take a boat ("VAPUR" in turkish) to go Kadiköy or Üsküdar about 15-20 minutes...
Also major universities located around like Yıldız Technic, Galatasaray, Bahçeşehir and İstanbul Technical. You can reach the coast in 15 minutes by foot and take a walk by the magnificent Bosphorus.
You will have hard time deciding what to eat and which ones to make favorite as there are lots of varieties; representing everything you heard about the Turkish cuisine and more.
My apartment is on entrance floor so you dont need to go upstairs or downstairs.:) Its modern look with 2 rooms and its own bathroom and kitchen, air conditioner, wifi and TV.
One double bed in one room and one sofabed in the other room. Also with small garden. So you can stay 4 people as well. All bills (heating, water, electricity and wireless internet) are included in the price.
If you have further questions, go ahead and ask. Remember that my place is not a hostel or room. its entire house :)
See you in İstanbul :)

Other Things to Note

Really nice flat, comfortable and clean. We haven't seen the host, but everything was really well explained and I already knew the city so it wasn't a problem. Besiktas is a very nice area with lots of local places.
The appartment is in a quiet location and Sertan is a very kind host. For two people the size is perfect and the cooker and shower work fine. Eating can be done in the living room since the kitchen doesn´t have a table. The bedroom is quiet with comfortable beds. The terrace is rather dark but good if you want to leave your bike and shoes outside. Sadly, the appartment is very moist and needs some renovation. I was quite disappointed when I saw it. When we complained about this, Sertan gave us keys for another appartment which we could also use. That was very kind, thank you for that!! The heater was in the bedroom and we turned it off during the night so we could sleep but unfortunately cut off the hot water supply for the other appartments so we decided to sleep in our originally booked appartment.
déception ... je ne comprends pas les commentaires laisser par les autres hôtes je n'aurais jamais louer sinon ... pour ma part , logement hyper humide , odeur de 'moisi' . murs tous craqués .. peinture défraichie , il faudrait peux être penser a redonner un coup de neuf à tout cela .. de plus très sombre .. nous n'etions pas très à l'aise à l'interieur . Même constat pour ma fille qui à 7 ans !!!
la TV qui n'a pas fonctionner durant les 3 jours .... en clair , nous avons été décus .. le logement se trouve dans une rue au calme c'est sur , mais assez loin du centre ... et tout en montée !! sportifs bienvenus . sinon Istambul est vraiment une belle ville !!!
I don't trust him! , before I tell you why, the apartment is very dark and as a tall guy I was really uncomfortable due to the low roof, the toilet area was super small as was the sink. The beds were awful as well, I don't trust him because I forgot money in the apartment and when I called him 2days later he said that he can't come but he'll check if the housekeeper can come and will let me know. He didn't call back after that so I went there my self and saw that the housekeeper was there and it looked like she was looking for something! It's just a consumption but Im really glad I tried him for 2days before I decide where to stay for my vacation!
First I'm really happy that he found his money after he checked out two days later.
I think he is and I'm lucky the apartment was empty for several days after him... It is true he called me and told me that "I forgot something" I didn't know it was money then I tried to called my cleaning lady to tell her to wait for him but I couldn't reach her... when my cleaning lady called me back he was already there and he found his money himself ... of course the apartment was mess because she was cleaning :)) Anyway sorry for miss understanding maybe I had to call him to check...
About the apartment I used to live when I was single and great time with my friends with same furnitures, I don't know maybe we are all shorter dan him... Only I renovated bathroom last year OK it is not Hilton type but it is same as pictures... Unfortunatly I couldn't meet Mr Mohammed but I do trust him and he can stay again in my apartment maybe I can change his mind after we meet ....
Sertan's apartment accommodated me and my family very well. It's a bit confusing to find but location was perfect and very accessible. I would definitely recommend the apartment, especially for up to two people. We were four so it was a bit tight, but we didn't mind! Sertan was accessible despite having been out of the country for most of our stay.
I enjoyed my trip to Istanbul. The apartment was tiny and comfortable. All the things I needed were at hand and I found a lot of nice places in the quater. Unluckily I did not meet Sertan, but he left me all the necessary informations. I would like to thank him very much and whenever I'll come back to Istanbul I will contact him to book again his apartment.
We stayed at Sertan's place for ten days. Our entire trip was enjoyable with no problems whatsoever.
- Apartment was tidy and clean upon arrival.
- Plenty of towels and plates.
- Apartment had ironing board, washing machine and DVD collection which was great
- Close to Besiktas shopping center.
- All questions were answered promptly and professionally.
-Internet was slow and would disconnect frequently.
- Cable did not really have anything on it. Not a huge problem but if it is advertised it should really have more than a couple of channels.
- I would not say that this place is for 4 people. I think 3 maximum would be a better representation of the apartment.
Overall a good trip.
