THIS IS ONE OF RECENT GUEST REVIEW FOR OUR SULTANAHMET APART...READ IT TO BELIEVE ...
Looking back I think we selected Alan's apartment from the reviews and they are all spot on. Alan's apartment was ideal and perfect for our week in Istanbul. Perfect location in a quiet area, next to all the main sights and also to the tram and a supermarket! The apartment was very comfortable and warm, clean and very welcoming. Alan has thought of all the details including fridge full of food, coffee, water and minor details throughout the apartment including city guides and recommendations for first time visitor, even slippers, umbrellas and plug adaptors! The bed was extremely comfortable and it has a great shower and plenty of soft towels. Alan is a great host, very pleasant and keen to make sure that everybody enjoys their time there. He was very helpful and it felt that we could call him for any help if needed. It was home from home, making difficult to leave the apartment sometimes. Thank you Alan!

This was a perfect place to stay. Central, warm, clean, close to good restaurants and lots of added extras I wouldn't have expected! Alan's flat would be the only place I would stay in Istanbul. Recommended by a friend, I was pleased to see it live up to that recommendation. The flat is a good size, well decorated and the bed I slept in - the first of the beds in the twin room - was the most comfortable bed I have slept in! It has all that you need plus extras: I wasn't expecting the bottled water, juice etc that is there. Thanks Alan! Overall, if you want a great place to stay when visiting Istanbul which is less than 10 minutes to all the main sights, then stay here!

Thank you for the kind , great review which you left for us , like many other world travelers , you visited us from UK , and guests likes you makes us happier :)) Glad you guys had wonderful stay with us , and again it will be our pleasure to host you in the future , in Istanbul :)) Best
Alan made us feel very welcome upon arrival. Prior to arrival the communication was great and he was very helpful answering any questions we had. The apartment is as advertised and even nicer than the picture depict. Alan is a gracious host that thinks of everything to make your stay more enjoyable. From the breakfast food to bottled water and information galore and tips on the city he is the ideal host. I highly recommend Alan and his wonderfully located apartment. Will surely stay there agin when returning to Istanbul!
Dear Christopher and lovely friend,
It was truly our pleasure to have you both for week long and we are so glad you had wonderful (email hidden).Sophia Garden Apart in the center of Sultanahmet Old Town Peninsula , guest like yourselves makes us even happier , we all hope to host you in the future , thank you for visiting us all the way from Italy :))) Best
Alan was great. This is easily the best experience I've ever had using Airbnb. Lots of clean towels, free bottled water, fruit juices in the fridge, and good wifi. Alan also helped us with good tips in terms of what to do in Istanbul.
Everything was great – the location is unbeatable, 5 minutes to St.Sophia and yet on a quiet street, also, few supermarkets nearby and lots of restaurants.
The apartment is very clean and tidy, well-equipped and nicely decorated. We are thankful for breakfast sets Alan left us in the fridge, also, drinking water was very much appreciated, as we drinking a lot of wonderful turkish tea. The apartment feels just like home.
Alan and sisters are wonderful welcoming and helpful hosts.
I definitely recommend the place. So far this is a best place we ever stayed in Istanbul.
Dear Alena and lovely friends,
Thank you for this wonderful review , and we all glad you had wonderful stay in our Sultanahmet Old Town Peninsula , just like many other world travelers , and those reviews makes us happier :)) We all hope to see you in the future , Best .
앨런의 아파트는 완벽했어요. 블루모스크에서 걸어서 5분, 그랜드바자르까지 10분... 등 주요관광지를 걸어다닐수 있어서 정말 좋았습니다. 앨런과 그의 자매들은 쾌적하고 멋진 집을 제공해주었습니다. 일주일간 먹을수있는 충분한 물, 우유, 빵, 잼, 커피 등의 먹거리와 깨끗한 수건, 물티슈, 샴푸, 식기세척기 세제, 세탁기용 세제 등 필요한 것들을 완벽하게 제공해주었습니다. 이스탄불을 여행하는 4명의 그룹에게 완벽한 집입니다. 강력추천합니다.
Alan's apartment is perfact. It is close at Blue Mosqe, Grand Bazar, Aya Sopia. I could go to there by walk. Alan is very kind and perfact host. He leaves water, milk, bread, jam, butter, tissue, shampoo, detergent for washing machine, etc. I were happy, comfortable in Alan's apartment. If I come again Istanbul, I will stay Alan's apt.

Alan and his sister Sybil were amazing hosts. Alan arranged for a van to pick us up from the airport at a reasonable cost and dealt patiently with a few glitches in getting 3 people from 3 different flights to our meeting place. Once we arrived at the apartment, he and Sybil spent a lot of time describing the area and sights and how to get around, encouraged us to call whenever we needed anything, and provided a wonderful box of cookies from another sister who runs a bakery. We couldn't imagine a better stocked apartment -- the refrigerator was filled with eggs, milk, cheese, juice, mineral water, plus bread, cereal, coffee, and lots of filtered water for drinking and coffee (no one drinks Istanbul tap water). In addition to all the basics, the apartment is wonderfully furnished and a very relaxing place to be after a day of walking the city; it is everything represented in the advertisement. Great neighborhood! Can walk to everything. Upstairs neighbors are a bit noisy late at night -- it seemed like a larger family with lots of activity, but it was well worth being on the ground floor with no stairs to climb. We were there over the holidays, so there was probably more activity than usual with children out of school. Neighbors on the second floor were gracious and friendly, thanking me profusely and asking if we needed anything after I helped them rescue a very wet cat. Obviously, we loved our stay! We highly recommend the apartment and we have already shared information with several friends who live hear and have people come to Istanbul frequently. The friends visited with us in the apartment and were quite impressed. Almost forgot to mention -- I did a dumb thing and left something in the safe at the airport hotel where I stayed while waiting for my friends to arrive -- Alan and his sister drove me back to the hotel on their way home and made sure everything was set with the taxi driver for my return to the apartment (instructions can be tricky).
Dear Lynda ,
Thank you again for your wonderful stay with us and we all glad you had wonderful stay in our Sultanahmet Apart , being said schools are off for few days and sorry for the upper level sound :)) this happens in most residential buildings or hotels :)) Well like you said apart has all the world travelers need and most important for you to have that comfort level in every way from the luxury, to comfy beds, hot water, great pillows, comforters, mattress fluffy towels etc etc.
We all love to see you in the near future , please enjoy the rest of your trip , regards to your friends . And a BIG THANK YOU for this wonderful review for us appreciate :))
Alan was a great host. He met us at the apartment, and spoke about the local area, and made suggestions of things to do in the three days we were there, and how to get to each place. He also had a lot of information in the apartment, in the form of books and maps.
The apartment was very comfortable for us, and we especially liked the free food and drinks, which were much needed after all the walking we did.
The best thing about the apartment is the location. I really don't think it could've been any better, and in fact, on the day we left, a friend of mine has booked Alan's apartment for a visit in February!
