  • The lacation and the view = fantastic!
    You have to work for it, though. There are many many stairs to climb to get to the apartment. It worked out fine for 3 of us, but a bigger group may find it some what tight. Over all a pretty nice deal...

  • The real gem of this flat in Galata is the view from the 6th floor terrace (up an outside stairway). We enjoyed breakfast every morning and cocktails every night from the terrace because of the fantastic view - the Aya Sophia, the Blue Mosque, the Golden Horn, the Bosphorous - amazing. The call to prayer all around is a reall experience and the Galata neighborhood is great. We did not meet Emre but met his friends who were charming and helpful.

    Having said this, the drawback is the five full flights of stairs (a circular marble stairway) to reach the flat. Great exercise and good for your calves! If you can not handle the steep stairs up and down this is not the flat for you! the Galata neighborhood is also hilly and the tower is on the top of the hill, so be prepared to walk uphill. We enjoyed the neighborhhod and felt we were seeing a different part of Istanbul outside of the main tourist area (approximately 10-15 minutes on foot), which is a short walk away across the Galata Bridge.

    The flat is fine, if not a little sparse, but met all of our needs. However, if you are not going to take advantage of the flat's terrace then this is not the place for you. If you do want a wonderful view from the sixth floor terrace then this is it (even in early November).

    We used the wifi without incident. If you take a cab from the airport you need to tell the driver to take you to Galata Tower - there is a small plaza at the base of the tower with a number of restaurants and the hosts can meet you there to take you to the flat, which is a short block away.

  • We stayed in Emre's apartment for over a week in late October 2013. It was out first time in Istanbul and we are so so happy with the accommodation. The location was perfect, only meters from Galata tower and surrounded by cafes, restaurants and shops. It's also very central to access other parts of the city easily. The apartment itself is very comfortable, three of us stayed and there was more than enough room. The best part is probably the AMAZING roof top terrace! We enjoyed a lot of time on the roof admiring the fantastic view. We loved Istanbul and all it had to offer and really look forward to returning when next possible. We would not hesitate to recommend this apartment to others. Thank you very much.

  • Emre's flat is like a little low-ceiling rough cottage in the rooftops, and the view from the terrace above the flat, looking towards historic Sultanahmet is absolutely breathtaking, but like all views in old buildings it must earned. This apartment is for mountain goats. Fortunately a local kindly carried up our cases.

    The flat is not the most modern, but is spacious, clean and comfortable. The position, in the musical instrument area convenient to Ishticklal. From the lounge window a wonderful view of the Galata Tower, which becomes the landmark for 'home'. It was perfect for us.

  • The location of Emre"s apartment was very convenient to explore Istanbul. We loved being so close to the Galata tower and the wonderful cafes around the tower.We had several delicious meals at the Cafe Kiva.
    The apartment was cozy and the view from the rooftop is breathtaking.

  • Great appartment in nice neighborhood (not very touristy, a lot of places to eat, close to the old city and the ferryboats). The unique selling point definitely is the rooftop terrace with a view over the entire old city: from left to right you see the topkapi palace, Haga Sophia, Blue mosk, etc.
    The double bed is fine, the shower is also ok and there is enough room when you are with 3 persons.

Hi, I have studied art management in Istanbul and lived there for 15 years. In last 6 years i used to share my flat in Istanbul with airbnb guests. Then i moved to Berlin in October 2012 to live with my girlfriend who is from Berlin. At the moment i spend my life between Istanbul and Berlin(mostly in Berlin) and renting my old apartment and some other friends flats on airbnb. There are 2 other apartments each can accommodate 6 people; these belong to a friend who manages a suite hotel in Istanbul. He offers cheaper prices then normal because airbnb always offers better guests in our opinion same for our flat in Berlin. You can check them all and if you see something which you are interested in, i am glad to give informations and welcome you. When i am not in the city my friends will help you about check in and try to give you a good accommodation. Have a nice trip
