A large two-level (130 m2) open plan apartment on the lower two floors of the building (one level down from the entrance of the building) offers four sleeping areas, two full bathrooms, balcony and patio and an attractive living/dining room, providing chic, modern accommodation for up to 11 adults in a perfectly convenient location from which to explore the Old City.

The duplex is located in the heart of the Old City in a quiet residential neighborhood, a short walk from the Hippodrome, Sultanahmet Square (500 meters from the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia and Basilica Cistern), and the famed Covered Bazaar.

We would have never envisioned how perfect this home would be! It was so huge with 2 floors and probably could fit 12, comfortably. Everything was extremely clean and they were very generous supplying detergent, shampoo, and basics in the refrigerator. This home is perfect for families as it is spacious and has a washer and dryer, all kitchen necessities and 2 bathrooms. I was also impressed with the folder they provided detailing instructions for all the appliances, recommendations and info. The location is about a 10-15 min walk to the Blue Mosque and major sites. There were great markets and restaurants near by as well. So the home and location we're both absolutely perfect! This was probably our 12th Airbnb and no doubt our favorite! Hurry up and book it. You will not be disappointed!

Lovely apartment, central location, water view. Well-equipped kitchen, stocked with breakfast items. Great shower, laundry facilities. Stairs a bit tricky, but manageable for most people. Hosts very helpful in arranging early-morning transfer to airport.

My first air bnb experience and I am glad it was at Aslan Apartments. The place is wonderful the hosts are great and pay attention to every detail. Amazing experience

Rana User Profile

Unfortunately Aslan apartment did not meet our expectations at all... The place had major issues: mouldy bathroom ceiling, bathroom door doesn't lock, loud humidifier that definitely has to stay on due to the high humidity of the underground part of the apartment which was not disclosed in the description, no privacy as bedrooms have no doors and the only bedroom that had a glass French door, had a broken handle that wouldn't let us close the door ... It definitely was not worth the $250 I paid per night and it ruined my trip to Turkey that I was looking forward to... The owner entered the place without alerting us which is not professional even if the airbnb rules allow him to do so. Overall the place is disappointing ...

Response from Gulnur:
We are sorry that we could not met Rana's expectations during her stay in our property. We would like to state some facts first (not comments): -- The rate was USD 178/night with cleaning fee and Airbnb charges it comes up to USD 205 not USD 250. -- Right after Rana checked out, Huzefa has arrived, please read his review. -- Rana did not reach us out about the issues she has mentioned in her review during her stay. -- There is some humidity in the lower level of the duplex, this humidity level varies depending on the weather. That is why we have bought a dehumidifier and were able to control the humidity around 35-40 % which is below the standards considering Istanbul weather. One of our previous guests had complained about the noise of the dehumidifier, that is why we got into the apartment and checked the device. While in the apartment we have noticed that the ACs were left on while the guests were out for the day and turned them off. Dehumidifier was bought on Septemb(PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN) (less than 11 months at the time) the brand is TROTEC (one of the best in this business) and we have consulted the manufacturer about the noise and had been informed that it is a regular noise can not do anything about it. Bathroom door is closing fine but there was a small issue in locking the door, we have handled it right after Huzefa left. Bedroom door handle is still unresolved we will handle it during this week 9/7 week. Best, Gulnur & Aslan

Life is running too fast and I feel like a mother bee busy with work, home, kids, lots of errands to do and our lively apartments.. As well as being a host for Aslan Apartments now we have a new apartment: 'Kismet' in the very Old City of Istanbul called Zeyrek which is under Unesco protection for the Byzantine ruins.
It is time to think about new year resolutions!.. I do yoga whenever I find some spare time for my body and soul! Towards the end of this year I went back in history to Patanjali and once more amazed how an ancient philosopher from 200BC can inspire us towards our journey to enlightment. As he explained Santosha (Contentment): let's cultivate contentment and tranquility by finding happiness with what you have and who you are. Seek happiness in the moment, take responsibility for where you are, and choose to grow from there.
I am sure traveling like a local will help! We will keep on hosting self-content travelers from all around the world in our Aslan Apartments, Sultanahmet and Kismet Apartments, Zeyrek and hope to help them to have a local experience in Istanbul!

Cheers!
