The apartment is exactly as described and Adar was a great host! He made sure we were comfortable at all times, provided us with touristic information to better find the attractions in Istanbul (as well as some less touristy spots to visit), and was always available if there was a question about the apartment.
The apartment itself is exactly as shown in pictures, very clean and a short walk from the main attractions and restaurants. We never took a taxi to get anywhere, we were able to walk to all areas.
Overall, Adar 's genuine care for his guests, and the great location of the apartment made our first experience in Istanbul a great one!
Thanks a lot Adar!

Great place to stay in such an amazing city. We really enjoyed the 4 nights we spent at Adar's apartment. Adar was easy to contact and gave excellent directions as to where to meet him. He was prompt in meeting us and took us to the apartment himself. Adar had some time to show us around the neighborhood and sites that we would have not seen without him. He gave us excellent recommendations for restaurants and places to make some fun purchases. Adar has a big heart and loves to get to know people, but at the same time is very considerate of your privacy. We will definitely stay here or at another one of his apartments when we are back in Istanbul!
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 .
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.
