Welcome if you want to stay at a cozy flat with local experience.:) It is in the center of Istanbul.The neighborhood is safe and close to attractions.Transportation is easy. There are many markets,restaurants,fresh fruit shops.I will help you always.
I am 26 years old female, graduated from Bogazici University.
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 2 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 15 minutes to Taksim. By cab it's just 5-10 minutes and costs around 8-13 Liras.
From the flat: 2 minutes walk to bus stations, 2 minutes to Radisson Blu, Marriot Hotels. 7 minutes to metro station, 7 min to Cevahir shopping mall(biggest mall of Europe), 8 min to Metrobus Trump Towers and 5 min to Cevahir Hotel and close to Lutfi Kırdar Congress Center.
Easy to access to touristic areas of Istanbul. There are direct buses to Eminonu where you can pass to Sultanahmet for sightseeing.
It's also close to Nisantasi, (15 minutes walk) a chic, famous neighborhood for shopping and dining.
It takes one bus to go to the sea coast, Bosphorus and enjoy the nice weather.
Shopping and transportation is really easy in the neighborhood. There are many small markets, big supermarkets, vegetable, fish markets and small restaurants around the house.
It is a safe place.
The flat has 2 bedrooms, 1 common living room, 1 kitchen, 1 bathroom and a balcony.
It's a new, cute and small flat, nicely decorated.
The room has a wardrobe, bed, desk, chair. There is a balcony from your room with nice colorful flowers.
There is a single bed in the room (There are 2 single beds on top of each other. So when you put one bed down, 2 people can comfortably sleep in the same room.) If you want, I can host max. 4 people at the same time in 2 rooms with a discount. For more information, ask me the details please.
The flat is on the 3rd floor and all rooms and kitchen are sunny. There is elevator.

I am easy to live with:) I speak Turkish, English and a little Spanish.
I have maps and guide books that you can use during your trip.
I can give recommendations about your trip and will be glad to help you with it.
Just a little respect :)
I recommend to this place, quiet and nice, with such a great and kind owner :)
I was not happy that Ceylan had a person living at the apartment that smoked in the kitchen. If others do not like this, then i do not recommend her place. I had no electric and I know she was at work, but it got very cold in the apartment so I left to get a hotel room. I was not offered breakfast at all, except by the girl who smoked in the kitchen. I think Ceylan is nice, but she should not advertise the place as no smoking. I see her other reviews that sound nice are not of this same place. It also seems odd that she advertises all these places and I am not sure she is the owner or not.
The flat is a non-smoking flat. I told this to the girl and I warned her so many times but unfortunately she didn't respect me and smoked when I am not at home. I am sorry about this. I also don't like it and warned her many times. This is the first time that someone smoked in the house. She left the flat and it is a non-smoker flat. The breakfast is cereal, tea, coffee. I showed you the place and that you can eat those. The electricity cut was because of the bad weather-snow in Istanbul. And more than 20 neighborhoods had electricity cuts that day. This happened in bad weather because of Istanbul infrastructure. There is nothing I could do about it, it was a general electricity problem. And when it doesn't work, the heating doesn't work. That is why it got cold. I am the owner of the flat. I wish you told me your concerns when I was there, so I would try to solve the ones I could solve because I want my guests to be comfortable at home.
This was a great place to stay! Very convenient and safe neighborhood near Sisli metro station, many food places, a lot of change offices, a grocery story, etc. Ceylan was AMAZING at being responsive and answering questions on Whatsapp and sending me travel directions from the airport -saved me a lot of money and worry.
Ceylan is the best. This was my third experience staying at her flat. Great host, great flat, great location, great price. The end.
Malesef ben rezervasyon yaptığım halde Ceylan hanımın misafiri olamadım. Çünkü ihtiyacımız kalmamıştı. O yüzden şu kadarını söyleyebilirim ki kendisi son derece ilgili ve sıcak kanlı iletişimi ile acemisi olduğumuz bu ortamda bizi rahat ettirdi. Konaklamamış olsak da Ceylan hanımı kendimize yakın bulduk.
Ceylan was a very welcoming and friendly host. She gave me a lot of helpful advice to make my stay easier and more enjoyable. The area is wonderful, everything you need is nearby. Very close to public transport (Metro, Metrobus & Bus). Lots and lots of restaurants nearby; currency exchange, grocery stores, supermarkets,... etc.
If you really want to stay in a clean and cosy place located in the centre of Istanbul and live the local experience. Ceylon's place is where you should go. Enjoy !!
Ceylan is a very friendly host. The place is nice and clean. Located around a Km from Metro station and Metrobus. Two stops away from Taksim. And there is a nice mall right across the road with good food options. The room was clean and cozy. Towel was provided. Though I found it a little expensive. Overall it was a great experience. Couldn't interact much with Ceylan as she was working throughout the day. But its a place I would recommend.
