Fantastic studio in the perfect location to get the true Istanbul experience. Nicely situated away from the busy surrounding areas, my friend and I were led to this cozy apartment. It was clean, quiet and a short walk to everything, including public transportation. Tolga was away when we arrived but he arranged for a friend to pick us up from the bus drop off point in taksim. He was great with communication before and after our stay. This was my second trip to Istanbul, a city that seems to speak to my heart louder than most. I feel fortunate that my friend and I landed ourselves in the warmth and safety that this studio offers. If your looking for five star accommodation, this is not the place for you. If your looking for a place that offers you the feeling of a home away from home during your time in Istanbul, then look no further. I highly recommend this space as it is comfortably equipped, lovingly decorated and offers a unique peacefulness that reminds you of what is important in life.
Cool apartment, good location!!! Tolga was a really great host.
LOVED this flat! It was the perfect size for my fiance and I. It had a comfortable bed, a washer, and a very clean bathroom. This flat is walking distance from Taksim square and very close to many restaurants and shops. Tolga was extremely helpful with travel tips in Istanbul. Tolga always made himself available when we needed help and its was super friendly! Thanks so much for all your help! I would definitely recommend staying here.
we really enjoyed staying in tolga's place! it's in a great spot close to taksim and istiklal street so perfect for going out but then quiet at night, not above all the noise on istiklal. we walked across the bridge to the old city which is a good walk but there's so much to see along the way. and we really preferred staying in this part of istanbul, rather than in sultanhamet itself as there's MUCH more going on at night with lots of cute cafes, nice restaurants, bars with music, etc. you could honestly stay out all night there.
the place itself has everything you'd need, tv, wifi, kitchen with kettle, microwave, etc. lots of hot water for a shower and a great heater for the winter months.
tolga himself was very helpful! told our cab driver how to get to the apartment, carried my bag up to the room, and gave us lots of recommendations. plus as others have noted he leaves delicious turkish delights and wine. would definitely recommend and stay again!
very nice situation and an Tolga was very had given to us very useful information, and has made himself available to make our lives easier.
Great service. Warmly welcomed with sweets and wine and Tolga would even help us during our stay. We recommend!
I stayed at Tolga's studio for 4 nights and had a great stay. The studio is located on a back alley off Tarlabasi Road and while it appeared a bit iffy at first, turned out to be quite safe and very convenient. Taksim Square - and the funicular to the Kabatas tramway station - is only a few minutes away and the super lively Istiklal Road is only a block away. Tolga is superresponsive - e.g. he came immediately to help when I had problems with the key - and gave some great tips for my stay there. The only downside I could think of is that the studio doesn't get much light, but this was not an issue for me as I didn't spend much time there.
This is a cozy, clean and nicely decorated apartment with all that you need. The location is perfect, very close to Taksim square (5 min walk). In addition, Tolga is super hospitable and super friendly, and answers all the question very fast. Highly recommended place for your both short and long stays in Istanbul!
Thank you Tolga for everything, and see you again!
Tolga was a very kind, informative and helpful gentleman. He helped us get familIar with the new city and was kind enough to pick us up from Taxim Square. The studio flat was in a prime location with excellent commute to modern and old part of Istanbul. Options for Shops and restaurants were in abundance too. The house was clean and fresh though we felt it would have been better if the bathroom had an exhaust fan. But frankly no complaints as all the facilities were good otherwise! I recommend this property!
Tolga was a lovey host, who was always quick to respond with information that we needed. He picked us up at the bus stop and walked us to the apartment, giving us information about the area along the way. The apartment is everything you need, and we were really touched with the welcome gift of wine and turkish delights - it made us feel much better after the long journey to Istanbul. Location was great - close to the metro and just a short ride to the old city and walking distance to İstiklal Avenue.
