This apartment is simple, cozy and centrally located, right next to the Vatican embassy. It has an easy access to Taksim, metro station, busses, and the ferry boat.
Long story short: You do not have to deal with the famous Istanbul traffic :)
It's a 3rd floor apartment (there is no elevator) with 1 double bed, 1 sofa / bed, hot water, wireless internet connection, tv, dining table, refrigerator, microwave, stove, coffee/tea machine + all cooking equipment, towels, hairdryer, iron, and a vacuum cleaner.
About the Location:
- 10 minutes walk to Taksim (Istiklal avenue)
- 5 minutes walk to metro station (which is linked to many places; Old city, Galata, Kabatas tramway and ferry to asian side),
- 10 minutes walk to Nisantasi district
How to get here:
Private transfer from Ataturk Airport for 1-3 persons will cost about 30 euro. However there is also the option to take the Havatas instead of a taxi. From the apartment it is only a 10 minutes walk to the airport shuttle (Havatas).
Proper choice to enjoy Istanbul to its fullest, and to be honest: you do not want to miss it :)
For further information I'm happy to help you.

It was an absolute pleasure staying in Eren & Suzan's apartment. The space was very clean and fully equipped with kitchen essentials and even a hair dryer and clothing rack. The apartment is centrally located, just an 8 minute walk from Taksim Square as well as from where the airport shuttle drops off/picks up.
Though we never met Eren or Suzan their staff was very welcoming and incredibly responsive when we needed extra assistance. One of the staff members even offered to send someone over the morning of our departure to make us Turkish coffee before we left. Since we had a really early plane he gave us a packet of Turkish coffee instead.
We would stay here again in a heartbeat and fully recommend it to anyone planning a trip to Istanbul.
Another huge plus: the apartment comes with a pay-as-you-go cell phone and a Metro Card for use on the train and water taxis! The phone proved to be very useful to contact friends in Istanbul and also when we got locked out of the apartment.
A few (very few) shortcomings:
1) The apartment only comes with one roll of toilet paper. It would have been nice to have 2-3.
2) The washing machine only seems to have a hot water setting. If you plan on using it I would suggest asking which settings are which since they are written in Turkish.
My wife and I spent a week in this apartment.
Personally, we did not meet owner of apartment. His assistant Ozan gave us the keys on arrival. With Eren we communicated by e-mail only. He is very affable and friendly. The hosts gave us Istanbul Card and a mobile phone with a local SIM-card.
We liked the apartment. It is warm, clean and the same as on the pictures. The apartment is well located. You can walk to Taksim Square just 10-15 minutes. There is a bus stop near the apartment. The apartment has all the necessary equipment, which may need a tourist. There was one problem – the drain in the shower worked poorly, and everything else was OK.
We recommend this apartment.
This apt is exactly the same as it is presented in the pictures. It is centrally located- just 10 min away from Taksim square. The location is great. The apt is very clean, located on the ground floor which is really comfortable. The apt has all conveniences and equipment a tourist need . Me and my husband felt like at home. As for the neighborhood, it is safe and quiet. There are some shops and public eating places nearby. The only problem about the apt is that the shower room is really small- so you should be ready to feel a little uncomfortable there. Also, the drain system in the shower needs repairing because water goes away with great difficulty. On the whole, I recommend to rent this apt if the host repairs the drain system.
The appartement is abaout 10 Min. from Taksim square and in a quiet street, quite different to the very busy and loud beyoglu. Its very clean and provides all things you need. All is perfectly organized by Eren and Suzan: Transport from the airport, Istanbul card, mobile phone. Any question, they answered immediately and helped us. For us it was a perfect place in Istanbul, we can really recommend the appartement.
Thank you Eren and Suzan.
I met Suzan once on the day of our arrival. She mentioned a few tips on how to use stuff at the house, and gave us the keys, IstanbulKart for transportation , and phone with SIM Card. Everything was as good as it is described. The only thing that is not mentioned here is that on the day of your arrival you need to sign an extra paper of agreement. Overall, we liked the place as it is a 5-10 minutes walk to Taksim Sq. and in a safe place.
Très bon appartement proche de tout. Equipement nécessaire pour y passer une (website hidden)ès content du séjour dans l'appartement.
Eren and Suzan provide you with a mobile phone, private transfers, an Istanbulcard for travelling by tram and everything you ask for they are willing to try to organize it for you, wihout any expense! They are always just one email or phonecall away. The house is excactly as in the pictures. Nothing special. Just what you need if you want to explore Istanbul to the max. The beds are not really comfortable if you have a back problem, if not they will do. The location is exactly in the middle of all districts.
Great location for a stay in Istanbul, central! Eren and Suzan were very helpfull to us, thanks!
My wife and I stayed for six nights in early July as part of an extended honeymoon trip to Turkey.
Eren and Suzan are wonderful hosts. When we arrived at the apartment late in the evening, all it it took was a quick phone call, and the cleaning lady was sent to let us in and give us instructions. They were responsive any time we needed them - including the time my wife blew a fuse with her hairdryer! You couldn't ask for better hosts.
The apartment is exactly as it appears in pictures. It was on the first floor of a 5-6 story apartment building in a quiet side street. It was very clean, had everything we needed, and was pretty spacious for two people. It was ideally located; 10 min. walk to Taksim Square, from which you can grab the Metro.
For the price we paid, I cannot imagine better accommodation, Eren and Suzan's Cozy Apart provides amazing value! We would return in a heartbeat!
Thanks Eren & Suzan for a comfortable stay in Istanbul. Everything we needed within walking distance of Metro, shopping street and good restaurants. Special thanks to Suzan for all information, cellphone and cards.
