Thanks to Alex for hosting me just for one night. The place is simple and clean and in a perfect neighborhood for sight seeing as well as enjoying night life in Istanbul. Alex was a very friendly and accommodating host. I would definitely stay with him again and would be happy to host him at my place as well.
What a wonderful location! This place is in a great neighborhood and within walking distance to many restaurants, bars, and markets. Not only is the place well worth the price but Alex is a very inviting and welcoming host. It was just as much of a pleasure meeting alex as it was a getting to experience istanbul.
Alex is a good host and very friendly, provided me with ample space. It waslike having my own apartment. Apt is in a great location, very walkable to tourist sights of interest. I would highly recommend Alex's apartment.
We didn't meet Alex but we kept in touch all our stay along.
His flat is very good situated, only at 10min walking from Taksim and 5min from the tramway. It's a small flat but neatly arranged.
For sure if we come back in Istanbul we'll come back at Alex's place!
Alex was a great host and the location of the apartment was perfect. Lovely spot if you've got a couple days in Istanbul and are on a little budget. Real comfy bed too.
My parents stayed with Alex for a few days. He was not there during that time so they had the whole apartement to themselves. Alex is a very nice host and the location is where good. I can totally recommend it!
Alex was a great host, he was very friendly and made me feel at home. House is very clean and cute. Also very central. Close to main areas which are Taksim Square, Cihangir, Tunel Square. Also walking distance to Old City area. Thanks for everything Alex...
hi alex, nice to meet you and thank you very much for beeing your guest.
Alex was a great host and made me feel at home. He woke up extra early when I knocked on the door at 6am after my flight arrived to let me check in (and crash), but I nevertheless went out with him and a friend that evening for a few drinks on Istiklal and sampled some home-cooked food the next evening. The apartment is small but lovely and clean, and the location is absolutely great, perfect for someone who wants a base to explore the Cihangir/Taksim/Galata area.
Cosy appartment, excellent spot in the city and fabulous host! It's a very nice place to stay at in Istanbul! Alex is a relaxed and very friendly guy...super helpful to get along in the city and nice to spend time with.
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
