Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • This is a great place to stay. Highly recommended. Alexis and his parents went out of their way to help us. The place is very clean and comfortable and in a central location. Thanks Alexis!

  • Alexis's parents met us to hand over the keys, and they were very sweet. The apartment's location is very close to many things (metro and funicular, bars/restaurant), but not so close that it's loud. The apartment was spotless!

  • A perfect apartment, very clean and comfortable and great location for the wedding that we were attending. Alexis and his Mother (who met us) were extremely helpful. I would definitely stay here again. Also all the locals who we met near the apartment were extremely friendly. Thank You!

  • We were welcomed warmly in the appartement and our host spoke super German and English and instructed us straight away :-) The flat looked like totally newly renovated, extremy clean, nicely furnitured and quiet. No doupt we can highly recommend this flat (for 2 - 4/5 persons), especially as it is only 7 walking minutes from Taksim and a Metrostation. Best regards Andrea & Urs

  • we had a great time in this charming Apartment in the middle of the City!

  • Alexis was out of town, so his very nice parents greeted us...the language barrier was challenging but we managed. We arrived at IST airport at 11:45pm, but after customs, etc. and taxi drive, it was after 2am before we arrived at the apartment. The door is a little tricky to learn how to lock/unlock so make sure you have it figured out before the host leaves after checking you in. Our driver had difficulty (at night) finding the place despite Alexis detailed directions that I printed out...so just a heads up. We had four in our group, all requiring separate beds, and the arrangements met our needs. Close to grocery stores and a food cart was just steps outside the rental...hot sandwich which was pretty dang good. Easy walk to metro station. Travel guides a plus. Large container of bottled water was on hand and so was an iron, laundry soap, and bar soap. Apartment is well maintained. Positive experience. Istanbul is a great city...clean, historic, and not expensive in my opinion. We took a ferry to the Asian side and found it to be a wonderful first day of exploring everyday street life which was the highlight of our brief 2 day stay.

  • This was a great local experience close to everything by foot or by taxi (which is inexpensive). A taxi front he airport to the apartment is about 30 Euro.

    The apartment itself is super clean, has nice interior, a small kitchen and two bedrooms perfect for two kids and two adults. Great bathroom.

  • We were 4 girls and stayed in Alexis appartment for 4 days. The appartment is perfectly located close to Taxim, so we mostly went by food to all areas in Istanbul. The appartment was lovely furnished as seen on the picture. It was very clean and everything was there what you need: towels, tea for breakfast, fully equiped kitchen, washing machine etc. We were friendly welcomed and had no problems. It is very calm there so we got perfect sleep to discover Istanbul. We had a great time also thanks to Alexis appartment. We very enjoyed our stay and can hardly recommend Alexis appartment.

  • L'appartement est situé à une petite dizaine de minutes de la place taksim. Très pratique pour les transports en commun. Propreté top. Calme et confortable. Niveau accueil c'est la maman d'Alexis qui vous remet les clés vite fait. Donc faut pas compter sur un dialogue avec l'hôte qui n'est pas là. Par contre Alexis est très attentif et réactif. Le rideau de la chambre est tombé, Alexis a envoyé quelqu'un rapidement pour l'arranger. Un bon séjour.
