The space

My place is a nice flat with 2 bedrooms and a living room in Taksim, which is the most lively place in İstanbul. With the convertible sofa beds in the living room, up to 6 people can comfortably stay in it. The bath is a shower bath with WC and hot water is supplied by an electrical heater. The kitchen is a small but sufficient one in which you can easily cook, prepare hot drinks etc. Along with all necessary kitchenware, you can find a microwave, a kettle and an electric oven. It is a flat decorated in a modern way in an old neighborhood.
The flat is in a very central position. It is 10 minutes away from the most lively street in İstanbul, İstiklal street, by walk. Also, you can reach to Taksim Square from which you can find buses, metro, tram, taxi etc. in order to reach many tourist attractions. You can go to many points of interest such as Sultanahmet, Topkapı Palace, Kapalıçarşı, Bosphorus etc. with only one vehicle. Also, since Taksim is a center for many cultural activities, you can find many opportunities to explore something culturally different.
For people seeking entertainment, the flat is only ten steps away from the famous street Nevizade where you can find many different places for wining, dining and entertainment. You can find bars, restaurants and clubs in a very wide range. The people who stayed here left it happily with good memories. I promise you can experience the real Turkish hospitality while staying in my flat.

The apartment is located at a great location, just couple of minutes walk from Istiklal street and several restaurants/bars are right next to the building. That obviously comes with a disadvantage too, music is very loud in bars/clubs and it's really hard to sleep before 4 am, sp…

We had a fantastic time in Istanbul and loved staying here! The location was great - we were able to walk to a bunch of the places we wanted to see, and anything farther away was a simple metro ride away. The place was comfortable and we had enough room for the 6 female college s…

Ayla was a lovely host and waited for me for a long time when I told her the wrong check in time! Flat is good value for money.
