Overall Guest Satisfaction

  • I can quote an earlier assessment: "Great appartement! Great host! Would love to rent this place again."

    Some more details in German:
    Wir waren zu viert für eine Woche zu Gast in dieser fantastischen Wohnung, die ideal gelegen ist. Die Straße ist sehr ruhig und doch ist man ganz, ganz schnell in den belebten Ecken von Beyoglu/Taksim. Die ausführlichen Fotos geben einen realen Eindruck von der Wohnung. Sie ist wirklich sehr großzügig. Die Dachterrasse ist ein Traum! (... den man nun mal nicht im Erdgeschoss vorfinden kann. Der Weg in den 5. Stock lohnt sich definitiv. Wer die Wahl hat beim Reisegepäck, wählt eine Tasche, die man für den Aufstieg schultern kann.) Die vom Badezimmer getrennte Toilette haben wir sehr geschätzt. Die Betten sind im ersten Schlafzimmer schätzungsweise 160 und 90 cm breit und im zweiten Schlafzimmer 140 breit. Die Schlafcouch im Wohnzimmer hatten wir nicht ausgezogen. Erwartet keine Filter-Kaffeemaschine. Türkisch wird Kaffee im Topf gekocht oder Nescafé getrunken. Es gibt aber auch eine kleine Espressokanne, die wir im Akkord in Betrieb hatten. Eine Spülmaschine ist übrigens auch vorhanden.
    Gut geklappt hat die Anreise. Cengiz hatte uns empfohlen dem Taxifahrer seine Telefonnummer zu geben, damit er diesem den Weg beschreibt. Das klappt super und ist unbedingt zur Nachahmung empfohlen. (Glaubt nicht, dass das Nennen oder Zeigen einer eindeutigen Straßenanschrift zum Erreichen des Ziels ausreicht und versucht garnicht erst, einem Taxifahrer einen Stadtplan unter die Nase zu halten.) Cengiz hat uns herzlich empfangen und mit Tipps versorgt und konnte auch während des Aufenthalts jederzeit kontaktiert werden.
    Genug der "Lobhudelei". Wir können die Wohnung nur empfehlen.

    ... So, many thanks to Cengiz! Visitting Istanbul is great anyway. Staying at this apartment makes it even greater!

  • We were 5 days in Istanbul and we had a very, very nice flat, with a greatful roof- terrace and a wonderful view. Everything was great.
    Just the 94 steps to the flat were quite hard.
    Unfortunately was ist raining most of the time and we could'nt use the terrace.
    Despite the rain, we had a wonderful time in Istanbul an we will come back, if we can.
    The apartment is very centrally located and Galatasary is really nice.
    You get all what you want. The flat was clean and big enough for four ore fife people. The rate was realy good for this apartment.
    Special thanks also to our hosts Cengiz. He is a very nice and friendley person.
    He helps you where he can and erverything ist very uncomlicated.
    Thank you Cengiz. We hope you had a nice time in Munich.
    Many greetings,
    Peter, Regina, Ulrich, Barbara, - Germany

  • Cengiz flat is amazing! What else can I say… communication was excellent, Cengiz (email hidden) and was super helpful. The location is perfect as well, the street is quiet but very close to shops/bars/restaurants. I will definitely be back, it was an amazing experience! Thanks a lot for everything!

  • Nous étions 5 à découvrir pour la 1ère fois Istanbul.Une semaine riche en découvertes et en rencontres au cœur d'un quartier(Beyoglu) très animé et pittoresque.L'appartement de Cengiz,spacieux ,bien décoré,terrasse superbe,bien équipé est idéalement situé dans une rue très calme(idéal pour dormir),près des antiquaires(Cukurcuma),à 2 pas de la bouillonnante et extraordinaire rue Istiklal à mi chemin de la place Taksim et de la tour Galata.Le tramway à Tophane est rapide d'accès pour Sultanahmet.Très bon accueil.N'hésitez pas!

  • Vraiment génial. Le flat est spacieux et très lumineux. Il n'y manque rien. La terrasse est petite mais suffisante avec une vue sur la tour Galata. La rue est très calme, des antiquaires, des brocanteurs, des petits cafés, des restos. Cengiz nous a accueilli chaleureusement et nous a fait confiance car il n'était pas là quand nous sommes partis. Les 5 étages sans ascenseur sont un peu dur à la fin d'une journée de marche dans la ville mais nos enfants les montaient en courant ! La localisation de l'appartement est aussi très facile d'accès, surtout à pieds, les transports en commun sont tout près et le quartier de la rue Istiklal est très animé de jour comme de nuit et à peine à 5 minutes.
    Nous y retournerons.

  • Lovely flat in probably one of the best areas of Istanbul. You find everything you need within 5-10 min walk. Taksim, restaurants, carrefour, espresso/tea bars, shopping, istanbul modern, metro and an excellent hammam. Tired of climbing: pick a taxi for 5tr to the top (e.g. taksim) and walk the last meters down to the flat.

    10 min. by metro you find all the most exciting tourist attractions: bosporus cruises, hagia sofia, topkapi palace, sultan ahmed mosque, grand and egypt bazar.

    Cengiz was an excellent host, organizing even our taxi drive to the flat. Even the 5th floor wasn't that challenging at the end.

  • Great location, very pleasant area, possibly the best spot where you want to be - close to everything: Taksim and Istikal, tram, etc. The house is nice, 5th floor (no elevator), with a small terrace, and very usable. Definitely I would reccomend it!
    Cengiz was very kind and helpful, and he did more than he had to in order to deliver the best possible experience.

  • The flat was perfect! Well located in an interesting and quiet neighborhood. Close to many restaurants, supermarkets and cafes. The place is spacious, clean, comfortable, well heated and we loved the terrace. There is a nice view from there. Having the wifi was convenient and Cengiz was very helpful in providing useful tips. We sent Cengiz a text message the nigt before we left and he was able to order us a cab. Enjoy!

  • Cengiz was more than helpful before and at our arrival. He even gave directions to the taxi driver on how to get to the flat. Which is a little removed (making it really nice and quiet). I loved the balcony and view. It (email hidden) to come back to after seeing the sights and well positioned to see the main tourist attractions as well as many surprise antique and vintage shops along the way. Even the 4 story walk up to the apartment was well worth it. The only reason I gave 4 stars is that there was no hot water for showers. The sinks would have hot water on and off. Also two chairs broke and several light bulbs were burnt out. A few replacements would do the trick. (email hidden), in a unique location, (email hidden).
