Great check-in experience100% of recent guests gave this home’s check-in process a 5-star rating.

I renovated the place to be my home in this amazing city. It is minutes walk to Istiklal and Taksim - the cultural hub and commercial / shopping district of Istanbul, with easy access to buses and the metro. I'm renting it out because I'm currently away from Istanbul.
