City Walls ;
The Walls of Constantinople are a series of defensive stone walls that have surrounded and protected the city of Constantinople (istanbul ) since its founding as the capital of the Eastern Roman Empire by Constantine the Great. With numerous additions and modifications during their history, they were the last great fortification system of antiquity, and one of the most complex and elaborate systems ever built.

We felt very welcome at Alper's apartment, and I would definity recommend it to families with children - ours are 8 and 5 years old - because it is so spacious. The cildren had room to play - the interior is well-designed but also child-friendly, and as there are no direct neighbours they did not disturb anyone. The apartment is well equipped, well heated (when we arrived in Istanbul, it was snowing!) and cosy. The neighborhood is quiet and friendly, and well connected to all important parts of the city by public transport.
Alper is very friendly and gave us some valuable tips, from where to buy our groceries to where to go and what to see. We discovered some parts of Istanbul that were new to us.
In sum, we had a very good time and would definitely recommend the apartment.
Alper provided us with a lot of information on the first night we arrived, even waited for us till 10pm due to the flight delay. We appreciated that so much!
The apartment is really large for four of us. We enjoyed the time there. We just changed the large living room and kitchen to a bar by ourselves. The neighborhood is great as well. We enjoyed the Kebab restaurant next door, bakery around and supermarkets. It gives you a taste and price combination you won't find in the center.
However, the apartment is half underground. So if you are looking for a view, it may not be your choice.
My family had a fantastic stay at Alper's apartment. He was there to meet us and very kindly picked up my daughter and her boyfriend from the train station. Alper spent time with us explaining how to get around the city and good attractions to see. The apartment is only 5 mins walk from the main tramline to Blue Mosque etc. The apartment is very secure and we felt very confident leaving our valuables there while we went out exploring. It is situated in a local area and we were able to get a feel for local Turkish culture. The local shops were friendly and helpful. As mentioned in a post I read previous to booking the apartment there is some visible mould in the shower room and a bit of a damp smell from the shower room. Overall we had an awesome stay at Alper's apartment and we felt very safe walking around all areas from the apartment all the way to Taksim Square and it was great to know we could call Alper should we need any help.
Alper was great, and very friendly. I really enjoyed the stay and the area is GREAT. Everything I needed was near and mostly within walking distance.
The apartment is exactly as the pictures show, no surprises.
I recommend this apartment to anyone who needs a stay for 4-6 people.
Appartement en souterrain confortable et spacieux, facile à vivre. Alper nous a donné quelques tuyaux pour les visites, les déplacements etc. Nous avons passé un séjour très agréable et ce n'est certainement pas la dernière fois qu'on visite Istanbul. Contact avec Alper chaleureux, sans le moindre problème.
De omschrijving was meer dan accuraat. Ook gaf de verhuurder uitgebreide informatie over de voorzieningen in de directe omgeving van het appartement en tips over bezienswaardigheden in Istanbul.
We truly enjoyed our stay at Alper's basement apartment! It's situated in a neighbourhood district, within the heart of Capa, Fatih. For anyone who is looking for a home away from home, this is definitely the stay for you!
Alper welcomed our family by personally picking us up from the tram station and showed the route (abt 7 mins walk) to the apartment.
It's a cosy basement apartment catering to all your needs - a kitchen, good wifi, cable tv, quaint bedrooms, personal laundry and separate cubicles for shower and toilet bowl. Also, neighbouring local mini shops - from kebabs to supermarkets and even a book shop, are all within short walking distance. Thus far, we had not experienced any negative disruptions to our stay. There wasn't much noise at night when sleeping. The door also autolocks by itself. Overall it is a safe environment to be surrounded in.
Alper also shared with us some tips and places of interest in Istanbul that is highly recommended. Above all, he helped us in making arrangements with an NGO that we wanted to meet with. He is really helpful and we are happy to have been hosted by him in his cosy apartment!
It was great meeti you Alper! Definitely recommended to everyone and anyone! :)
