We chose to stay at this flat because so many of the previous comments mentioned that Murat is a great host and that the apartment was clean -- and these are both absolutely true.
Truly, Murat was helpful and quick to respond to any of our calls or messages throughout our entire experience, while also being low-key and giving us lots of space during our stay.
The apartment is just as pictured - clean and basic. More than enough space for two. It's situated slightly above street level, but the street that it's located on is considerably calm and residential.
This location is a few blocks north of Taksim square, a busy and touristy area. It was great to be able to walk into the 'action' easily, but we were rather thankful to be staying in this neighborhood at the end of our long days of walking around and exploring.
So, overall this was perfect for us. Very clean towels and sheets.
And most importantly: Hot water and WIFI worked great. :)
It's very nice flat, we really felt ourselves like at home. Very clean and comfortable, spacious and warm, no problem with water and wi-fi. Great location: not so far from Taksim square, not so far from Istiklal (just 7-10 min on foot) , close to the bus and metro stations, so no problem to arrive somewhere.
Murat is great host, very kind and hospitable. Thanks him very much for help with our luggage (aviacompany lost it and Murat helped us to resolve this situation), thanks for all. Our vacations was very nice and i hope we'll return there again.
Apartment is really nice, exactly as in the pictures. Location is great, close to Taksim square. Shower is good, plenty of water! Street is a little bit noisy, even during the night (and bedroom window goes straight to street...).
Murat was very quick in answering all my messages and was there to welcome us to the apartment (and we arrived very late). Unfortunately, there was no extra towel for my friend (3rd guest) and the extra sheet for the sofa-bed was twin (and the sofa-bed is double).
Murat was an amazing host. He was quick to respond to texts and email beforehand, the apartment was fantastic and after our stay he helped us find a place at the last minute for a final night's stay in Istanbul. Murat made our time in Istanbul much more enjoyable. Thanks for the tea and cookies!
