I'm looking for female or couple travelers or the ones who need to reside Turkey for a short while.
I speak Turkish, English, a little Portuguese and a little Spanish.
So If you don't know these languages it would be difficult for me to host you.
What is included:
- 24 hours hot water
- Wireless Internet
- Kitchen and bathroom is shared
- Tea, coffe, and when we wake up in the same time we can have breakfast together.
It is possible to park for free in front of the building if you come with a car.
You should be clean
As it is an apartment you should not make noise not to disturb other people in the building.
Bahar is an extremely affable person. She was extremely helpful, from coming to pick us up to booking our taxi, early in the morning, for our flight.
Bahar helped us plan our days well, told us of the best places to eat, to see, the food to try etc. Her place is very well located, in terms of travelling to the old city, where all the tourist attractions are.
Highly recommended: Bahar's home is the right place to be - when you want a good modest place in an excellent location in Istanbul. It is in a quiet alley behind a street where there are all kinds of public transport. No hills or stair climbing – it is most significant for tired tourists' :). It is very safe and easy to walk around, Close to many sites. Large lighted room, clean house.
Bahr is an excellent hosts, Kind, professional, funny and extremely nice and helpful. I stayed in her home for over 2 weeks and it was great. I have nothing but good things to say about Bahar and her home. I received some good recommendations: good places to eat, pretty villages around the Bosporus, she invited a taxi for my morning flight back..
Glad to know you Bahar- Many thanks & I wish you just the best.
Staying with Bahar is like staying with a friend. She's an amazing hostess; very welcoming, easy-going and helpful with any information that you my might need. I enjoyed my stay with Bahar and our breakfast together. The location is near the tram stop and only 6-7 stops to Sultanahmet area. The neighborhood has so many great local shops, restaurants and bakeries. I recommend Bahar's place when visiting Istanbul.
Bahar is the perfect host! She warmly welcomed me in her lovely apartment. My room was super comfortable. The apartment is well-located, very near the tram station and restaurants. She always helped me in my plans and we also had a great time dining out. I had a good laugh wih her and we had so many interesting stories shared. I hope to meet her again. I highly recommend her place to anyone visiting Istanbul.
Bahar was great! She often shared breakfast with us and had many recommendations for places to eat around the city. Her place is nice, quiet, the room is very big with a fan and windows with a lot of light. The bed is comfortable as well. The location is close to the tramway on the Euro side so you can avoid all the traffic of Istanbul. We spent a week and had a great time and no troubles getting there or around. Bahar is a great host, very friendly and easy to get along with. She speaks English well, in case you are worried about that, so you can have a good chat over breakfast.
