This apartment is conveniently located near (across the street) from the trendy Beyoğlu neighborhood across the Golden Horn from the Old City of Istanbul. The apartment is on a relatively quiet street within a 2 minute walk from Istanbul's best restaurants and lively bar scene. The apartment is well equipped and comfortable. You can easily access public transit such as taxis and the metro/tram all in a short walk. I would definitely recommend staying here as its location allows you to explore the typical Istanbul sights by day, (the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia, Grand Bazaar) due to its proximity to public transportation and the lively local scene away from the touristy sights by night. Can was helpful in providing maps and information and was available if we had any further questions. Checkout was a little ambiguous, but other than that everything went smoothly.
I enjoyed my stay at this apartment. It was clean and well stocked with towels. The washer also came in handy. When I first arrived, Can gave me a good overview of the city and gave me general onboarding information (WIFI password, etc.). I would recommend this apartment to anyone.
We had a fantastic stay at Can's property in Istanbul. We enjoyed our stay at the first apartment so much that we extended our stay by four more days in another of Can's properties across the alleyway.
Can was very friendly, welcoming and communicative. On one of the days we stopped by Can's adjacent office for something and he even provided us with a fresh homemade lunch!
The apartment was very modern with all the amenities we needed. We were also very close to the major shopping/ bars/ restaurants street and walked absolutely everywhere in Istanbul without problem.
We definitely recommend staying at Can's if you are in Istanbul!
Can is a good host and his apartment is very confortable and has a good position: near the mail street in which you can have a really good time!
I recommend it!
Can is a very kind and helpful host. He even provides you with a guidebook, written by himself! His office is in the next building and you can always go and ask him for advise and information.
The apt has everything you need for comfortable stay. Also the wifi worked well.
The location is excellent. Only five minutes from the Istiklal Caddesi and from the Tünel. The neighborhood is quiet and safe.
Très bon séjour chez Can! Logement très agréable. Je recommande vivement pour les couples qui souhaitent se rendre à Istanbul.
L'appartement est très proche des zones commerciales et des endroits pour sortir.
We had such a wonderful experience at Can's!
The apartment: exactly as it looks in the pictures (maybe even a little more spacious than it looks), spotlessly clean, and had everything we needed. Very happy with the place.
Location: great location! Very close to Istiklal but walkable to the Galata tower, bridge, and Sultanahmet. Can left us a metrocard with funds left on it but we ended up walking most of the time because the location was so convenient. Just make sure you are ready to walk up and down hills :)
Host: Can was wonderful and a gracious host! We showed up at 3AM (late arriving flight) and were very nervous about getting into the apartment. The directions Can provided were spot-on AND Can actually woke up and drove over to the apartment to let us in with a smile. At 3AM!
We stopped by his office the next day and his associates were equally kind (and showed us the great view on top of his office!)
Only note on the apartment: some people have mentioned the walls are thin. And yes: the walls are thin, to the extent that we could hear the conversations of the apt above us quite well, and the school nearby has its own sounds as well so if you're sensitive to noise it's something to consider. With that said it didn't really bother us -- you're in Istanbul, why are you sitting indoors anyway :)?
All said we had a wonderful time and I would stay at one of Can's apartment's again any time. Thanks again!
I was really happy to get back to Can's flat. I call it Sultan flat because of the bed. :)
I love this flat. As for me it is placed in a great district... Someone can think that houses near are shabby but guys the whole city is like that believe me. Cute houses can be near old and strange ones.
The problem is only that place is down hill so be ready to have sporty walks to Istiklial street. )
I highly recommend staying at this place for the following reasons:
- The location is great, tons of stuff to do in walking distance. We even walking to the old town is no problem if you don't mind walking a little bit.
- The place is very nice and has everything you need.
- Can is very helpful, check-in and check-out are very easy.
The only downside is that everything that happens around and in the house can easily be heard. But during our stay it was very quiet at nighttime, so there was no issue for us.
All in all, I highly recommend the place!
Thanks to Can, our trip was even more beautiful. He placed us when it was comfortable (we arrived at night) and also allowed us "late check-out" (so we had peaceful enjoying Istanbul without our bags).
The flat is exactly as in photos - very fine furniture and has everything you need for life. Thank you very much for breakfast, for coffee and croissants :)
It is really located in a convenient cosy location.
Excellent apartment for two people for rent on a long period or two days.
Hope it was not last time we were here in Can's place.
Can, wish you good travelers! :)
