A group of us stayed at Faruk's place in February and had a wonderful time. The apartment was in a central location and provided a great insight to the local everyday life in Istanbul. The apartment had all basic necessities and was very charming.
Faruk was a great host! He helped the taxi driver with specific directions when we first arrived and called a taxi for us when we departed. He even invited us for drinks with his friends and shared some of his favorite eating spots!
The time in Istanbul in Faruk's flat was very nice. But we don't want to tell to much positive things, because we're efraid, that the next time we will go there the flat will be occupy. Faruk is a very nice and helfpul person and the flat was clean an exactly like the pictures are. The area where the flat is is also nice and very near to the area where the people goes out.
thanks a lot, see you soon in istanbul or somewhere
Appartement très calme avec 2 chambres et tout équipés, situé à 10 mns de Istiklal Cades! , rue piétonne pleines de boutiques . Faruk est super sympa serviable et d'une gentillesse !!!! Il nous a fait découvrir de nombreux bars et pubs et le fameux restaurant pour le petit déjeuner , une TUERIE!!
As an ignorant westerner showing up to Istanbul on a whim, Faruk was incredible. The flat was clean and comfortable, the location immersing. Stay and enjoy much longer than I did!
Faruk is nice and helpful. The flat is clean, inexpensive and at 5-10 minutes walking to restaurants and bars aera. Recommandation !
Faruk was a gracious host. Our flight was delayed so we were late arriving and he was very accommodating. The location was excellent. The apartment was really clean and the beds were comfortable. We would stay there again and recommend him anytime.
Faruk is a very nice guy, helpful and always there, if you need any help or have any questions. We lived near Istiklal street, 10Minutes, and on sunday there was a big market nearby. The flat was clean, had enough towels and bed sheets and we felt very comfortable.
We can highly recommend Faruk and this flat.
Faruk is a very helpful host who waited for us on Taksim Square and even paid a taxi driver to reach us to his apartment. Apartment is nice and equipped, very nice to stay for three of us.
Unfortunately, we have been robbed through the balcony door. Although there were iron shutters, a thief succeeded to stole my computer and child's bag. So, if you decided to rent this apartment you have to be careful.
I stayed at Faruk's apartment for two weeks. Faruk is a very helpful host who went out of his way to make us comfortable. When I wished to have an extra guest stay fro some nights, Faruk was very helpful and flexible, helping us with contact with taxi drivers and getting around. The flat is well set up, clean and airy, with a lovely sunny aspect. There is all you need for a simple meal, and also importantly for the longer-term traveller, a washing machine! It is very well located, and by walking down to KasimPasha market, you can have local food and access to easy transport. Istiklal is a good, easy walk away, up hill, with all the good food and shopping at your fingertips.
I really enjoyed the flat, its neighbourhood feel, and great location. We were three persons for about a week of our stay there, and there was plenty of room for us all to be comfortable, including a sunny balcony. Thanks Faruk!
Lovely appartment and great hospitality from Faruk! The only flaw that we was expecting the appartment closer to the center of Beyoglu but you can see an other face of Istanbul and that was really nice.
