About this listing
I rent a bedroom in my flat. The room is nicely furnished and very comfortable. There are a double-size bed, a cupboard for your personal belongings, a ventilator and a small window overlooking the inside of the building in this bedroom. It is around 25 square meters large.
There is one shared bathroom with a shower, a fully equipped kitchen and a living room in this flat. My guests are welcome to use everything they need. For having enjoyable nights, I have a home cinema to enjoy movies.
The apartment is located very centrally in Alsancak (Konak district). It faces the International Izmir Fair Area, close to "Cumhuriyet" Main Gate on 1396 Street. Downtown and all the other parts of the city can be reached very easily from this location. There are various kinds of sport activities available in the fair/park (e.g. walking, jogging, running, tennis etc.), and also the entrance and using the sport tolls are free!! Most of the entertainment and shopping complexes are in Alsancak and central Konak. Along the coast side, there are many cafes and restaurants where you can try the finest examples of the Turkish cuisine or just enjoy the sunset.
If you wish, I can provide drinks with or without alcohol for an additional charge. I can give you tips on your daily trips. Parking is available in a nearby car park with security system for extra fee.
My guests can cook their own dishes.
Normally I live in this flat, and please note that during the space of time that the room is rent I will be present in the flat (in a separate room).
I prefer my guests not to wear shoes in the flat. They can either bring their slippers with them, or I can provide them with disposable slippers or special "house shoes".
Smoking is allowed only in the living room and the balcony. Thank you for caring.
Ali is a great host. He does everything he can to help you and make you feel welcome. Whether you are staying for a night or long-term (as I was) it is a great place to stay. His place is also in a great location. It is near Basmane and only a fifteen minute walk from the waterfront.
We arrived easily as Ali left a key for us at the Moto Stop downstairs so arrival was pretty easy. It was a short walk from the metro station to his place which is across from the Fair Grounds which was pretty cool. The room had air conditioning which was nice. Ali was very nice to us during our stay. While our stay was initially quite good, things didn't really stay that way for us. I would recommend that you stay if you are OK with cigarettes as when he and his partner smoked in the main room it wasn't bad, but when they went into the bedroom attached to ours by a window the smoke was quite bad. Ali late one night borrowed the milk we put into the fridge and accidentally left it out all night. The next morning he brought us some tea I assume to make up for his mistake. The worst night was the last when he and his partner stayed up to 4am drinking and smoking cigarettes. Our room was very smoke filled and they were quite "noisy" in the room connected by the OPEN window. This was very uncomfortable for my wife and I and we didn't sleep much. I would recommend this Airbnb if you are comfortable with cigarette smoke and late night activities that might keep you up. I would also recommend that Ali clean up his kitchen area a little bit before guests arrive. We would not feel comfortable cooking in there. Again, Ali is nice so we feel bad having to share this... but it's only fair for other Airbnb guests know all the details.
Unfortunately, reviews, fair and not honest.
First of all, I empty them for that;
Stylish Room, gave City Center Alsancak.
Yet they, Stylish Room 2, made leasing for City Cntr Alsancak.
This larger, air-conditioned room and orthopedic beds.
And I did not want extra money for the room from them.
And I saw that not even a thank you.
3 nights and slept in the lounge for the convenience.
We had only one night in the other bedroom.
How much was that night.
We've imported cigarettes, we made a noise.
Pity very sad.
I wish they Uyarsısı us.
These complaints were real; Believe me, they would alert us.
However, this did not happen.
I invite people to make honest comments.
Very wrong to respond to people.
We had a great stay with Ali. He was very helpful in the days prior to our trip, such as helping us figure out an airport transfer. He met us at a convenient location for the airport bus and walked us to his place which was very helpful. Comfy, cozy place!
Ali is a perfect host. Really friendly, offered me help with getting from the Izban station and throughout my stay. If you want to join him and his friends in the evening, there's absolutely no problem. But if you want to enjoy the silence, noone will disturb you too. I was asked several time if it's okay for me to invite friends in the evening. Communication is perfect, atmosphere is really warm. Really recommended for your stay in Izmir. Communication before my arrival was also perfect, I received all necessary information and hints. Thank you Ali! And see you soon :)
Ali Cem was a nice host and really welcoming, although he doesn't speak so much english. The apartement is very clean and well situated, in keeping with the description. I would recommand this place if you want to socialize with other people, he received friends every evening. But, if you prefer more privacy, it would be the wrong place. Everybody was really friendly and made us feel confortable. Nice place for a short stay.
It was a very short and nice stay at Ali's place. He's a very friendly person and helpful. His apartment is at a nice location just by a park.
