A white apartment that soothes the eye... There are 2 bedrooms, a living room with an open kitchen (the washing maschine is in the kitchen) and a bathroom with a shower. There is a little balcony at the back to dry your clothes. You are at the entrance level, a couple of steps above street level. There are iron bars at the living room windows, facing the street. There is a natural gas combi heater, air conditioner in the living room, hair dryer, washing maschine, clean sheets and towels and free weekly cleaning. Wireless and a diaphone buzzer is a standard in all our flats.
The flat is located in a rather silent neighbourhood (Firuzağa Mahallesi), but at the same time very close to the center of Taksim, (Istiklal Street) which is only 10 min away on foot. Taksim squar, at the end of Istiklal Street, is a transportation hub and there is metro, bus and “dolmus” stops here. The apartment is across the Algerian street (French Street), and you can reach Tophane in 8 minutes with a brisk walk. You can catch the tram going to Kabatas(ferry to the Asian side or the Prince Islands) or to Sultanahmet (Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia, etc.). Istanbul Modern Museum is 2 stops away on the tram line, Eminonu and Misir Carsisi, Topkapi Palace, Covered Bazaar and Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia are all along this tram line. Great starting point to explore Istanbul!

Great location! This is in walking distance to a lot of great cafes/restaurants/bars in new town, as well as a tram stop and taxi stand. The building doesn't look like much from the outside, but this is really a cute part of town. You only have to walk half a block for the scenery to improve. The location felt safe, and the apartment was clean.
The downside was the bed in the small bedroom. It was so hard that after the first night I slept on the couch instead. Luckily that was much more comfortable! Also, the wifi stopped working after a day, but since we found a great cafe around the corner with wifi we didn't bother notifying Evrim. We loved the breakfast and coffee at the cafe!
They arranged for a driver to pick us up from the airport and returned my deposit in a timely manner.
