The flat is very well located: very central (easy to go to the old Istanbul as well as to the modern part of the city) and with a lot of commodities around (restaurants, bar, ...). Umut was nice and gave us good tips and recommendations. The flat is simple but everything is available.
The apartment is located in the best district of Istanbul, the neighbourhood is perfect. Umut was very kind to tell us lots of useful recommendations and to help us with ordering taxi. The apartment is simple, but neat and comfortable enough for 4 persons, the internet worked without failing. The views from all windows were incredibly beautiful! The only small difficulty we have experienced was taking shower without a curtain, so, after taking a shower it was necessary to dry the floor with a rag, but it was not a big problem at all. We are very thankful to Umut!
Umut's place was great. It's in a young neighborhood with an abundance of small and local bars, restaurants and cafes. It's also a nice walk across the bridge into Old Istanbul to see historic sites, museums, and mosques (about a 30 minute walk - with great views!). We slept three in the apartment comfortably (two shared a room with single beds). Umut also keeps about 4 sets of each kitchen item you should need - plates, cups, etc. this is an affordable apartment in a nice neighborhood; it has exactly what you need to have a nice stay and nothing more.
The apartment may be simple but has everything you would need for your stay and the views of the Bosphorus and old city really are amazing. It is a great base to explore Istanbul from as it's so close to the metro, trams and ferries, as well as the lively Taksim area. Despite being so close to Taksim, which is generally crowded and noisy at all hours, there was no noise problem in the apartment. Although I didn't see much of Umut he was friendly and had some good suggestions for cafes and restaurants in the surrounding area. There was only one problem during my stay - no electricity when I arrived at the apartment one day - but that was fixed immediately.
Great place, simple with confortable beds, hot shower and amazing view! It was like in the description. Umat was a great host and he waited for us even if our plane was late. We have shared a great meal in a cool restaurant where he's used to going. The place is well located, near Galata bridge and with an easy access to the od Istanbul and all the great monuments. The neighbourhood is full of nice bars and restaurants. We really love our stay !
I stayed in this apartment with a friend for a week and it was a great base from which to explore Istanbul. The apartment was simple and clean as described and the views of the Bosphorus from both bedroom windows were stunning! Umut gave us great tips and advice on getting around the city and on where to eat and drink. He was always available throughout the week to answer queries either by text or by calling into him. I was expecting the area to be noisier at night but found it surprisingly quiet-apart from the early morning call to prayer which takes a little getting used to. All in all we were very happy with our choice of accommodation and it is also ideally located to explore all that this enchanting city has to offer.
Simple, clean, and well positioned place to stay for independent - minded travelers. The views can't be beat! Would gladly stay here again.
