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.
Excellent séjour dans un appartement simple, coloré et propre avec une vue exceptionnelle sur la tour de Galata, Sainte-Sophie et le Bosphore !
L'appartement est parfaitement situé et Umut a été particulièrement sympathique et disponible.
Un super séjour !
The best thing of this house is the location: is easy to reach (by bus, ferry or tram), well connected to the main turistic sites and is in an area full of interesting shops, restaurants and cafes.
Umut is very kind and helpful, he explained to us many things about Istanbul.
The only bad thing could be that the apartment is at 5th floor without lift, but I think the beautiful view worths the effort!!
