The space

Hi Travelers,

My place is in one of the central points of Istanbul, very close to public transportation and cafes and restaurants.

Especially very close to historical peninsula (Sultanahmet, Grandbazaar) 15 minutes by tram.
20 minutes by bus to Taksim area where the night life and culltural events take place.
Also airport is easy to go like 40 min by tram+metro
20 minutes by taxi. (costs around 15 USD)

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.

Bahar was the perfect host during my stay in Istanbul. She is very funny and creative, so you will have a wonderful time staying at her place, that is very clean and comfortable. The apartment is located in a very strategic point of the city; there is a tram station very close, so you can go to the main sightseeing points in less than 20 minutes. From the airport Ataturk to her place you can go by metro and tram, it takes 45 minutes approximately. Bahar knows very well the city (European and Asian side) and all the recommendations she gave me were so interesting. She loves telling stories about the city and enjoys sharing her point of view of Turkish society. That is very important when you want to have an experience beyond the typical touristic way. She is very sweet and easy going, you will feel welcomed, specially because of her funny sense of humor! I spent a great time with Bahar, so don't hesitate and contact her! :)

Bahar is a wonderful person!!! And a great hostess. She is friendly, sensitive and affectionate. All the time she is pending from the needs of their host. Her apartment is very cute, warm and clean, since I reach I felt that was in my home. The apartment is very well located and you can go to all the places of interest ( sultanahmet squar, Taksim, Eminonu, Kabatas, Gulhane Parki and some others...), taking the tram just two blocks from the apartment, also can do combination with all others public transportation which are excellent in Istanbul and everything is very easy. The neighborhood is very nice and you can walk around discovering different thing too. I had the opportunity to meet her mom and is a lovely person. We walked together a lot around Istanbul. I can' t find the perfect word to express my thanks for all your attention and affection. If you want to spend some beautiful days in Istanbul you should choose Bahar's apartment. Thanks a lot for everything you did. A warm greeting, Alicia

Me and my mother had a fantastic time at Bahar's house. We had a great cultural experience as Bahar was always friendly and eager to help and we learnt a lot about Istanbul through her. She was also very kind and hospitable and helped my mom out on her last night to get to the airport. The place is quiet and clean and it is 15-20 mins from the old town via the tram. The neighbourhood is great for shopping groceries and having quick meals. Would stay here again anytime.

Staying with Bahar for 5 days were very enjoyable. She had went above and beyond her call of duty. She is a wonderful and amazing person. She helped me alot with advice and showed me around Istanbul as a local. Her help with the local banks were exceptional. I tip my hat to you. Our talks and trips during my stay were great memories and she made me feel comfortable throughout my stay. What can I say but a big thank you!

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.
