Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • The room is simple and just like it appears in pictures. The location is amazing, just a few blocks from the Galata Tower and less than a mile to Istanbul's old town where the Blue Mosque and Hagia Sofia are. The apartment is very comfortable and really makes you feel like a citizen of Istanbul rather than a tourist. The apartment also has really good hot water and a great view. Umut was very busy with work when we were there but made sure we had everything we needed and even printed out our boarding passes for us!

  • Excellent views and good location in Beyoğlu. Umut is kind, thoughtful and helpful and took time out of his busy schedule to chat to us. The room is basic and without air-con, luckily we had some breeze coming in and a fan. Some of the paint work needs re-doing from water damage but apart from looking slightly shabby the place is a good and clean base from which to explore Istanbul.

  • Had almost a week here and it was the perfect location for getting to know Istanbul. The area is trendy and away from tourist mania while still being very central. Umut is a cool and interesting guy with tips for breakfast and wine bars. The room indeed has a great view, and the kitchen too. We had backpacks so the stairs up to the apartment were easy, probably wouldn't be for massive suitcases. The shower is hot, floods a bit before it goes down, but would stay here again no hesitation.

  • Istanbul is one of the most amazing place to live. Also, renting Umut's flat is certainly the best idea you can have.

    The view is so nice, you 'll live in local place close to everything.

  • Beautiful apartment with unrivaled view - the Bosphorus from the main room window and view of the Galata tower in the kitchen. The location is in Galata which makes it perfect for a stroll to Taksim and to the main sights like Aya Sophia and Topkapi palace on the other side. The best part of staying at this place is Umut (the host), who is extremely nice and tries his best to make you feel happy and comfortable. He is also a great resource for finding things to do during your stay. Very good value and better than any hotel in the city for sure! Thank you Umut :)
