  • it is perfect for 2 people, however for 4 it is a quite small. Otherwise it was a good experience, near to Taksim, a central place

    June 2014
  • Mein Aufenthalt in Istanbul war sehr angenehm. Wir wurden freundlich empfangen und unsere Bedürfnisse wurden ernst genommen. Am Anfang hatten wir ein Missverständnis, bezüglich der Wohnung. Das Missverständnis wurde vom Team vor Ort sofort gelöst. Die Zimmer waren sehr grosszügig und sauber! Wir sind sehr zufrieden verblieben und können diese Unterkunft nur weiter empfehlen, da sie sehr zentral ist!

    June 2014
  • Sena&Seran's accomodation was great! The location is perfect and very close to Taksim sqr and public transport. Their staff was friendly and the apartment was very comfortable.

    May 2014
  • The place is just awesome, it's close to the main Taksim square, and the main transportation points.. room is nice and cozy, sleeping there is just great, very quite and good neighborhood.
    Must say a few words about restaurant downstair:
    Just go and try turkish omelet Menamen there - it's delicious!
    Thank you Sena&Seran for accommodating me at your place!

    May 2014
  • My wife and I absolutely loved our stay in this apartment. Sena and Seran were gracious hosts who went to great lengths to ensure all our needs were met during our stay. They responded promptly to all our questions and requests, and our breakfast at their restaurant, Cook Point, was the best Turkish breakfast we had during our 11-day stay in Turkey. We could not recommend this apartment and these hosts more highly!

    June 2013
  • My sister and I both work in the hospitality industry and have high standards of service. Sena and Seran were absolutely lovely, met us on arrival, hosted us for breakfast and made sure we had everything we needed. The location of this apartment is great, close to some amazing restaurants and bars.

    May 2013
  • I extremely recommend this place. Location is amazing, it's in Taksim square where you can find a very busy and live atmosphere, everything on your doorstep, bars, coffee shops, restaurants, clubs, shops, etc. You can easily reach all the seight-seeing points in Beyoğlu. If you like walking you also can get the old town in 30 min. The apartment is cosy and well decorated. The hosts are friendly and helpful, they really take serious their business making their guests feeling at home.

    May 2013
  • I have been to Istanbul 4 times and staying at Sena&Seran's place was the best so far. It has good location for main metro connection. Great area for going out on evenings. And most importantly - very comfortable apartments. It has more than everything you need in the room. One night there was a small noise from outside, but I think it's still one of the most silent places on Taksim district. The restaurant CookPoint is very convenient for having your breakfast and dinner. It's organic food for affordable prices. Sena&Seran is very friendly and I thank them for excellent hosting!

    April 2013
  • Sena and Seran were the best hosts one could ever ask for. The cafe they run below is very homely and cozy. She cooks with passion and not only makes amazing food but also presents it in an innovative way. He is very energetic and went out of his way to help us during our stay. Their hospitality and warmth would make us want to return to Istanbul and not stay anywhere else.Their 2 assistants also make a great effort in every possible way to make guests comfortable and welcome. The apartment was dotted with cute features which made the stay so pleasurable. All in all 2 thumbs up for making our holiday perfect!
