This cute little apartment is located in Gümüşsuyu, which is a 5 min. walk to the Taksim Square, where you find the Metro and the famous pedistrian street 'Istiklal Caddesi'.
The Bosphorus you reach by going down our road in 2 minutes. From there you can take the tram to reach Sultanahmet in 12 minutes, where you'll find The Blue Mosque, The Hagia Sophia, The Topkapi Palace etc..
In Cihangir, only 5 min. of walk you find a lot of nice cafes and cute boutiques, the atmosphere is really nice.. All in all the location is very good and you are close to everywhere.

Ich war für eine Woche Gast in dieser wunderschönen Wohnung. Die Lage ist perfekt, jeweils 5 Minuten zu Fuß nach Taksim (Metroanbindung) bzw. Kabatas (Fähren und Straßenbahn). Die Wohnung liegt an einem recht steilen Hang, was aber in dieser Gegend von Istanbul völlig normal ist. Dank der Hanglange eine wundervolle Aussicht auf den Bosphorus, entweder durch das große Fenster im Wohnzimmer oder von der Dachterrasse des Hauses. Jale habe ich selbst nicht persönlich kennengelernt, aber sie war per Email und Telefon jederzeit sofort erreichbar und hat sich super um die organisatorischen Fragen gekümmert. Die Küche ist perfekt ausgestattet, mit zahlreichen Tellern, Schalen, Töpfen, etc. Heizung funktioniert ebenfalls einwandfrei, Internet läuft schnell und ohne Probleme, sogar eine Spülmaschine ist vorhanden. Alles in allem meine bislang mit Abstand beste airbnb-Erfahrung. Ich kann Jale's Wohnung von ganzem Herzen weiterempfehlen!
The flat was ready, clean and tidy for us. It is a bit smaller that it looks on the pictures but the view to the river is true. In general it was very nice to stay there but for example, we didnt meet Jale at all. The bathroom sanities were a bit missing (no champu, no gel, no teethpast....) and there were just a couple of small lamps to light the flat which wasnt enough. On the other hand, the location was very good and convenient.
We had a great stay! The photo is the acctual view from the window and of course the biggest advantage of the flat. The flat was clean, quite and central. The heating worked fine, something that was important since it was very cold outside. I would without hesitation recommend to stay here and would probably check if it is free next time I am comming to Istanbul.
Jale's apartment is comfortable, quiet and the view on the river is great. Well positioned (close to Taksim and public transport) it was the perfect location to explore Istanbul. I didn't have the opportunity to Jale in person, but communication with her was very easy and she was quick to respond if I had questions or needed a local's advice. Will come back next time, definitely recommended!
Jale's house is a cute one with a nice bosphorus view! House is located between kabatas see side(5min) and taksim square(7min).
Also price/quality ratio is quite high.
İ definitely recommend for young couples who want to go around main istanbul sides.
Good, clean apartment with great views of the Bosphorus. Maybe a 10-15 minute walk to Istiklal, and it's a nice walk for those that enjoy this. Plus, it keeps it a bit quieter than staying right in that area would be. Nice hot shower, comfortable bed, and accessible to the tram or funicular. Perfect for a quick stay in Istanbul.
I stayed more than one week in Jale's place. Even though we could not meet in person she was making sure that we were having great time in her place. Flat is exactly how it is shown in pictures and it was very clean. View from the flat was amazing. You can easily see the Bosphorus while you chill on a nice comfortable sofa. I have to say bed was also very comfortable.
Gümüssuyu, where the flat located, is a very safe and calm area also it is also very close to some important transportation centres. You can reach to Taksim Square in 5 mins and enjoy Istiklal Street, one of the busiest and most crowded street in Europe or you can have access to metro and other means of transport easily. It is also possible to walk down to Bosphorus side where you can take the ferry to the different parts of Istanbul or you can use tram to go to historical peninsula.
In near vicinity of flat there are supermarkets, pharmacies, nice places to eat and so on.
I highly recommend this place to anyone who wants the enjoy beauty of Istanbul. Thank you Jale!

my name is Jale. My roots are turkish, but I was born and raised in Germany and only moved to Istanbul 2 years ago. After I fell in love with the city and its amazing Bosphorus, I moved here and have this cute little apartment with a view to rent out.
I hope, you will fall in love too with this city as I did, when I first came here. Maybe you are already :)
