Interaction with Guests
You can ring doorbell of doorman (which is marked as "Görevli") when you arrive, he will let you in, and bring your keys. IMPORTANT ! Doorman does not speak English, but he is always informed about arrival of my guests. Unfortunately due to my working schedule, I am mostly not able to welcome my guests personally. But doorman is reliable to make check-in process.
I am always reachable via phone, or Whatsapp in case of any need.
Our flat is just 2 minutes away from Sishane metro station and Tünel Square. So its quite easy to reach any direction via public transport.
Also a special & user friendly map provided for our guests.
Other Things to Note
Please do not consume tap water in the flat since its not healthy in Istanbul, additional drinking water supplies is being provided in big bottles.
Also please let me know one day before if you need airport transfer, I can arrange a driver who will pick you up to your destination airport for a fixed price (I do not gain anything from this, and I am stick to the amount which driver requests for his service).
Please wait in front of our building in case of you request me to book a taxi for you. I always call reliable & nearby Pera taxi station and they bring a taxi in to the front of our building maximum in 10 minutes. Taxi has a black logo on their door, or "Pera Taxi" mark on their front window. If you take another random taxi from street after I book it for you, its causing a time loss to already called taxi, and I also have to call them to cancel it then (And I totally do not suggest you to pick random taxi from street, they are not so reliable!).
You can leave your keys at your kitchen table at your departure day.
Also you can leave your trash bags in front of your flats door, so doorman can pick it up away.
Unfortunately short water shortages may sometimes occur for a few hours, its nothing about my flat, but it happens in entire area. Unfortunately we do not have any water reserve in our flat.
There are no specific or strict rules, but please let me know in case of any need. Thanks for your understanding ! ;)
