Celal was a very nice host! He was nice enough to let us check in at a very late time because our flight landed just before midnight. The apartment has a PERFECT location near Taksim square but the street it is in is very quiet. Celals cat and dog are super cute and do not disturb at all. From the little balcony we could always check on the weather situation (which was almost always great, we were lucky).
We had a great time in Istanbul and would definitely book a room at Celals place again.
Staying at Celal's apartment was very comfortable and I thought the location was well situated near Taksim Square. Celal let me use the kitchen and the living room, so that I could relax watching the TV on some evenings or cook my meals. Just outside his apartment are grocery stores, convenience stores, and small restaurants, so I never had to make a long trip outside if I ever got hungry. It was so nice to come back to his apartment after a long day and snuggle with his pets!!
We had a wonderful time at Celals place. The room was nice and fully met our expectations. The flat is located very central and was a perfect point of departure for our staying in Istanbul. We also had very nice conversations with Celal, who furthermore gave us advices and friendly answered our questions. In a nutshell I would recommend this place :)
Celal was very welcoming, very kind, and every time I needed his help he was available. Moreover, his two pets bring good mood !
The room (2) itself is very comfortable and well-equipped (good bed, shelf). The only disadvantage is that there is no window, but the lighting is fine. The apartment is quiet, always very clean and well-equipped (washing machine, kitchen, clean bathroom...).
The neighbourhood is very nice : there are all kinds of shops (food, services...), it is relatively quiet and it is near Taksim (and the metroline).
I stayed there one month and I really felt good !
L'appartement de Celal est très bien situé à 5 minutes de la place Taksim et du métro. On a été très bien accueillis, l'appartement est tout confort, propre. Le chien et le chat de Celal valent le détour aussi, ils sont vraiment très sympas!
Unfortunately i could not meet Celal, his friend took care of everything instead. He arranged the check in time and was willing to help me when needed. The room was very clean and cozy, the bathroom, kitchen, and living room are all equipped with everything you will need. I really felt at home :) You can walk to Tamsim square where you can find other public transportations. I loved his lovely pets too, thank you very much!
Celal is a very friendly, welcoming host and we enjoyed our stay in Istanbul. His apartment is very large, clean and modern, not to mention fantastically located, close to the place the airport shuttle drops you off and also close to Taksim square and the Istiklal area, where the city is at its most vibrant.
The bed was extremely comfortable, and so was the bean-bag you can see in the picture. The bathroom and shower cabin were also always clean and functional. We especially loved the laundry and drying facilities, as we were on the road for long and having clean, dry, nice smelling clothes one hour after pressing the first button felt like pure luxury. Also, he provided another round of clean towels when we asked for them, after a few days.
I saved the best for last: Celal has the most amazing Scottish Fold and the world's smallest Chihuahua, both of which are super loving and enjoy spending time with you. That being said, if you don't like pets, it won't be a problem, as you don't have to pick them up or open the door and insist they come in, as we did. They spend most of their time in Celal's room, anyway.
