My flat is in Sisli, center of the city, which is a convenient district very close to Taksim Square, the center of attraction and nightlife in (website hidden)'s 1 metro stations away from it and if you prefer walking, it takes about 35 minutes to get there. There are also many buses and it will take around 10 minutes to Taksim. By cab it's just 5-10 minutes and costs around 8-12 Liras.

I found Ceylan friendly, very pleasant and very helpful. We had a good chat, which I really appreciated. I like the area she lives in. A wonderful experience!
It was my first time with Air BnB and I must say, an excellent experience. Very well maintained apartment and friendly atmosphere.
Ceylan is a nice girl and it's an excellent experience to stay with her. She is so friendly and quite during rest time and the apartment is clean and comfortable. I'll stay with her again if I'm gonna visit Istanbul next time. Thanks for hosting us, Ceylan.:)
Ceylan was a great host! She was easy to communicate with, and even before we arrived was very helpful. The flat was exactly as described. We loved our Istanbul experience!
Wonderful. Great location, in the 'real' istanbul, and still walking distance to taksim. Ceylan is wonderful and helpful and I immediately felt local thanx to her
