Emplacement idéal, superbe vue, hôte sympathique et disponible, appartement sommaire mais fonctionnel
Umut is a friendly host and eager to help. The curtain in one of the bedrooms fell down and he came to fix it. The apartment has a beautiful view and is conveniently located. However, we had real hot and humid weather and didn't sleep very well, as the curtains let the light come in, and if we let the window open, the streets noises would be too loud. Also, the shower water floods beyond the bathroom so you have to put carpets to absorb. Other than that, lovely place and wonderful stay!
We enjoyed the flat. Perfect location in city centre and great view. Umut was a friendly and helpful host.
Umut was a great host! The appartment is the perfect starting point to discover the city. It is tidy and clean and has an awesome view on the Bosporous. Can recommend it to everyone!
First, the location is awesome and the views are spectacular. The area of town is definitely safe and very up and coming. It's in the back streets in Beyoglu, which is where a lot of hipster cafes, design studios, and artists are. That being said, it is down some small alleys that are a little shady at first and in a building that's quite run down.
The flat was nice enough, but it did have the shower not separated from the bathroom, which can be a little annoying with water everywhere after anyone takes a shower. There is also no living room space to hang out if you want to do that, just the kitchen and two bedrooms.
The photos might be a little old in some cases - there is now a water heater in the kitchen where the birds on the wall were and things are re-arranged in several rooms. There is also a styrofoam covering on one wall in the two bed bedroom due to water damage I believe.
Lastly, it was quite difficult to get a hold of Umut, which doesn't seem to have been the experience of others here, but he basically didn't respond until the day before we arrived with instructions for how to get into the apartment. We eventually had to walk to a cafe up the hill to get the key, but they didn't know anything about it and eventually it got sorted out. We also had some cleanliness issues with lots of dust and hair balls coming out from under the beds throughout our stay (probably because it was quite warm and we had to leave the windows open).
Overall, I'd say there's probably similar places that might be a bit nicer in the area. I'd definitely recommend staying in the Beyoglu area though since it's in perfect distance to everything and is the best place to find great food (off of the main roads like Istiklal cd though).
We had a lovely stay at Umut's apartment. The apartment itself is simple and small but clean and has everything you need for a short stay. It also has a beautiful view of Istanbul! However it is five flights of stairs up and no lift. Umut was very welcoming and gave us some great recommendations for the area. Checking in and out was also very easy. Thank you Umut!
Umut was very helpful in finding the apartment, and provided us with useful information about great places to visit around town! The apartment is small but the views are amazing and the location is perfect. We did great with four people staying for a week, and I'd recommend it for anyone looking for a home base for exploring Istanbul!
