There are a few house rules that we are sure that you wouldn`t like it if it was done to you.Its important to enter and leave the building in a quite way,listining to music and watching tv louder than it should,that would disturb the other (website hidden) matter how much love them,we are not allowed to keep pets within the apartment.
Tolle Wohnung, optimale Lage für Besichtigungen, Ausgehen, Flughafentransfer. Die Wohnung ist wie dargestellt, gute Betten!
Ahmets apartment was perfect. We were a group of 5 people and there was sufficient space for all of us. We all were able to sleep in proper beds in 3 separate rooms. The whole apartment is a bit smaller than I expected however everything is in a good condition as shown on the photos. The location is perfect for city-trips as it is right in the heart of Istanbul. We walked everywhere even though metro and bus stops are around the corner. I can recommend it to anyone.
This accommodation was very poor and bore no relation to the pictures on the website.. The apartment was extremely noisy from both the traffic outside and the constant noise of children running backwards and forwards for hours in the flat above. The entrance was dark and dingy with no light bulb on the landing making it difficult to find the lock. Inside , the kitchen was small and poorly equipped with just a two ring camping type cooker and a fridge. No plug in the sink. The bathroom was very small, with a broken mirror and dangerously hot water in the shower, which should be addressed before someone is seriously injured. The bedrooms look out onto a rubbish strewn alley and a bare wall. The noisy heating system cycles on and off all night in the bedroom. The sheets did not fit the beds, which were two singles pushed together. There was no information in the apartment regarding equipment or facilities nearby and we never met the host. Finally, I was charged £123 per night when the listing price is now £73, which is still too much for this quality of apartment. I will be taking this up with Airbnb.
First of all, I want to warn you that, this flat had over then 150 reservation, and 70 reviews, and It has 5 star overall. - At least, I will ask you to read the previous review-
The main price of the flat is fixed in the profile page as a tag , It doesnt change, when you will type your dates, It will change according high season - low season.I tried to explain you couple of times but you didnt understand. Of course you wont pay the same fee during the year, and you stayed in the middle of April which is the highest season. You never mentioned your problem during your stay, even 1 time, and then you checked out, and back to your country, you asked me a %50 of refund and you threated me with the very bad review. And you asked a refund from Airbnb, and even airbnb didnt give you a refund. We know that, this review is written because of your vangeance. You did! Congratulations.
Ahmet is a fantastic host. Whatever we needed - he helped us out. Pick up at the airport, excellent restaurant recommendations, wonderful Bosphorus tour with private boat, tour guide recommendations, transfer back to the airport etc. He replied very swiftly and made our trip absolutely perfect. We travelled with my mother and my 1 year old son and Ahmet really catered to all our needs in a very nice way.
The apartment was great and even better than it looks on AirBnB. Location is perfect and it is a very quiet street with friendly neighbors, bang in the middle of everything. I would recommend Ahmet any day of the week and we all hope our roads will cross again at some point in the future. Ahmet holds the key to a unique Istanbul experience so when people are contemplating on where to stay also take in to consideration that Ahmet is better than any 5 star hotel concierge I have ever come across. Thank you Ahmet from a very happy Swedish family.
Our company, 11 architects from Lithuania, is pleased and grateful; our choice was very center, Broadway, if it exists - and we got it; both apartments on Istiklal and at the Istiklal, minutes from subway station and Tunel. All the privileges of the center, including and noisy nights on weekends:)
Our kind host Ahmet did everything and even more for us; booked restaurant for the great dinner on the arrival night and morning press conference, patience and respond to our hundreds questions, help with local information - we felt almost at home at the first day.
My sincere recommendations for those who are planning Istanbul - to stay here; when l'll be there again - my choice will be the same. Have a nice time in a very center of this magic city!
best wishes - Audrey
The apartment is just as described and as shown in the pictures. The apartment was presented to a high standard, was clean and was in a great location.
I would have given a 5 star rating but we had a few issues during our stay which I would put down to us being very unlucky!
We had issues with the heating on the first morning which meant that we couldn't have hot showers. We reported the issue and people were sent out to fix the problem. We had to make a couple of calls as we then had leaks from the system in the second bedroom which also recoucured on the second night.
We also had problems with the TV but Ahmet was quick to respond and sent someone out to fix it. We still had problems operating it and were only able to view Turkish channels - some instructions might be helpful.
If Ahmet wasn't as responsive as he was the experience would have been unsatisfactory. But he was very responsive and even gave us a free transfer back to the airport.
I would consider staying at one of Ahmets apartments in the future although I would hope for more luck for a trouble free experience!
Unfortunately You had total 2 problems. One of this was heating system. One time in year, This heats need some water, unluckyly the heating found your stay, and I beleive that we fixed it quickly ( Sorry again) And about the tv, before your stay, there was a storm and snow in Istanbul, the sattelite of the building was in a trouble. I didnt know that before your stay.
Now the heating system and tv works well. The heat was ok during your stay, and repairman was able to fix it after your stay.
I was so sad because of these problems, and I offered you free airport transfer for you for showing my good hand.
I hope to welcome you in one of my apartment again in the future.
The placce was just like it pictures. Very Nice. Ahmet answered all our questions. He gave us suggestions for resturants and a Turkish Bath. Had a very nice time. Thank you Ahmet
