The apartment is as described and is in an ideal location. The Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia, metro, and great restaurants are nearby. If this is your first time in Istanbul, I highly recommend staying here, as Adar is an excellent host who is willing to go out of his way to ensure that you feel comfortable. We arrived very early in the morning and he was willing to meet us and show us the apartment. Adar is very quick to return emails and calls. The transfer service he offers is efficient. The next time I book a trip to Istanbul, I will book with Adar again.
The flat is exactly same as pics. Very close to the grand bazaar, then easy walk to sultanahmet. Adar is very friendly and warm welcoming even he is so busy. His response was so efficient and easily understood he has tried his best to fix issues, such pick-up arrangement, locker issue, shower issue. My friends and I are really happy to meet him in Istanbul, like an old friend. Already missed his big smile.
Adar est une personne tres genereuse et a pris le temps de bien me situer dans la ville ,l,appartement est tout pres de tout et dans un beau quartier ,et est tres bien entretenue et bien equippe,revenir a Istanbull ,je louerais a nouveau cet appartement,tres beau sejour .
Bon accueil, Adar est une personne agréable qui a pris le temps de nous expliquer tout ce qui était nécessaire au bon déroulement de notre séjour (courses, restaurants, quartiers à visiter et tous les détails pratiques se rapportant au logement).
The apartment was just as described, very convenient for the main sites and in a lively residential area. We enjoyed being out of but near to the tourist area, particularly as the apartment is in the heart of a busy and friendly working class area. The apartment was comfortable and had everything we needed for a very enjoyable stay.
Adar was a great host, very friendly and welcoming! The apartment looks the same as on the pics. It's located in Sultanahmet area and you have to walk around 15 minutes to go to the Blue Mosque, a little more for Topkapi palace. We found it really pleasant to be in the historic district. Fortunately the flat is not located at the exact same place than all the very touristic hotels, so you walk around without being surrounded by tourists and go to some "local places".
There is only one negative point: when you are in the apartment, you can hear the noise from the street. If you are sleeping between midnight and 8am it's not disturbing as it's very quiet outside but if you want to sleep during the day it's a little bit noisy.
Anyway my husband and I stayed 4 nights there and we liked it so we recommend you the place!
Our host greeted us warmly and made us feel very welcome .
Insisted on carrying our 2 heavy suitcases up the steep cobbled path to our apartment and up the stairs .
Adar could not have shown us more hospitality, introducing us to the local area, nearby shops , supermarket and the best baclava in Sultanamet.

Hi, I have lived and worked in Istanbul for 15 years in tourism. I have worked in the hotel, transfer and tour business. Having my own business is what I enjoy most. I have worked as hotel managers, restaurant manager and also in the textile business. I am pleased to offer apartments and options for visitors to Istanbul to enable them to enjoy their stay in Turkey as part of my growing accommodations business.
My hospitality and genuine approach to visitors is right up there with the best of Turkish hospitality. You will not be disappointed. I enjoy making sure my customers are comfortable, feel secure and have everything they need to make their stay relaxing.
I am happy to offer an introductory explaination and orientation of the area. Thank you and
looking forward to seeing you.
