Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • We loved the excellent location! Stepping outside and you are in front of the tower and a lot of movement on the streets, yet the room was very quiet and worm.

  • This room has a great location and is pretty cheap for a room in Istanbul. However it's not very clean, the building smells really weird and it can get quite cold and uncomfortable at night.

    Essentially you get what you pay for - a centrally located room in Istanbul but don't expect much more.

  • Great location, quick walk to shops, tram, etc! The room is cute and private, and Samane stays out of your way but is helpful when you have questions. It was nice having a kitchen where we could have coffee in the morning and have a fridge to keep some veggies and snacks for when we didn't feel like eating out. Thanks, Samane!

  • Stayed with my girlfriend for a weekend in this lovely apartment in March. Lovely, comfortable, beautiful and vintage apartment with hospitable hostess Samanе.
    The apartment is located in the old center of Istanbul, near many cafes, shops and public transport. Walking is easy to reach the center.

  • Das Zimmer in der Wohnung war sehr gemütlich und super gelegen. Die Ausstattung der Wohnung war vollkommen (website hidden) gab sogar eine Waschmaschine. Die Lage ist perfekt und durch die Nähe zum Turm weiß man immer wo das Zimmer ist da man sich am ihm super orientieren kann.das Frühstück des Ca 100 Meter entfernten Hostels konnte man mit (website hidden) war schlicht aber gut. WiFi hat in der Wohnung super funktioniert. Ein kleiner Supermarkt war auch direkt ums Eck und ein Getränkeladen sogar im selben Haus im eg. Ich komme gerne wieder.

  • Loved this room. Exposed brick walls, slick modern furniture, walking distance to all the good restaurants and shops on Istiklal and 10 minutes to the Galata bridge. I walked all over Taksim and Sultan Ahmet from this apartment. The room is quiet, the hosts are nice, but stay out of your way. Make sure you try Velvet Cafe the next street over for breakfast.
    Will definitely be renting this room again when I'm back in June :)

  • Everything was perfect Samane home. Our room was right across from the Galata Tower, Great Location, with many cafes, restaurants and shops close to the house. The room is very large with a good bed and internet. Semane perfectly met us and escorted us to the room. A great experience in Istanbul. Recommended one hundred percent.

    Todo fue perfecto en casa de Samane. Nuestra habitación estaba justo enfrente de la torre Galata, una hubicación perfecta, con muchas cafeterías, restaurantes y tiendas al lado de la casa. La habitación es muy grande, con una buena cama y con internet. Semane nos recibió perfectamente y nos acompañó hasta la habitación. Una gran experiencia en Estambul. Recomendable cien por cien.

  • Me and my partner staying in Samane's for a 10 day trip to Istanbul. There are many great things about this accommodation, firstly the location - super central, in the most vibrant area of Istanbul, 2 minutes walk from the T1 Tram line and Golden Horn - and the real value for money. We stayed in one of the 4 bedrooms this apartment is made of. The apartment is on the third floor of an historical building in Galata, Beyoglu neighbourhood and the street boasts at least 4 cozy restaurants serving delicious food too.
    It has fast WiFi connection which worked very well and there is also a compact but functional kitchen, which together with the shower room is shared between the 4 bedrooms.
    Breakfast in the nearby hostel is also included, with a selection of coffee, Turkish tea, bread, preserves, butter, cheese, olives, tomatoes, cucumber and also fresh fruit.
    In all, this place is a fantastic value for money, centrally located, cozy and uncomplicated accommodation. We really enjoyed it and would definitely recommend it to our friends and also stay in Samane's apartment again in our next trip to Istanbul.

  • The room was great and the location was outstanding. Galata is a nice neighbourhood as well. Samane helped us a lot to organise our arrival and departure - these things are always hard when you get to an unknown place :-)

I live in the best location of Istanbul, exactly in front of Galata Tower. I love this area because its always lively with great restaurant and cafes - you can spend hours sipping Turkish coffee and watching the world go by. I have a couple of rooms here.They are all tastefully decorated with exposed brickwork and lots of them have lovely views across the Bosphorous. They are all within a stones throw of Galata Tower. Bathroom and kitchen are shared with the other renters in the apartment. I welcome people from all over the world and I love to share my passion for Istanbul with them. Have a look at my pics and feel free to ask me any questions. I look forward to meeting you here! Samane
