// About the apartment and the room:
The flat has a size of about 40m² and includes open kitchen connected to the bedroom and a balcony with a nice view. There are 2 openable windows and balcony, so you can have a nice breeze if you want :) Also there is A/C which can warm up the room or make it cooler.
You will have a double bed (separable to 2 beds), a big storage for clothes, a couch in another room (accommodates 2) and a table with 4 chairs in the room. There is also a fully equipped kitchen (kettle, toaster/grill, electrical stove, dishes, cooking equipment, forks-spoons-knives and all necessary things) and a bathroom with toilet and shower (soap is provided).
Internet connection, bed sheets and towels are included.
The apartment is right in the heart of Istanbul, at Taksim, only 1 min walking to the famous "Istiklal-Street" (behind the French Consulate) where you find hundreds of shops, restaurants, bars, nightlife, the location is simply amazing. You can always walk home since we live in the center.
The house is very close to the public transportation stops (metro “Taksim”, dolmus (shared taxi), buses terminal), the transportation is nearly 24 hours and taxis are cheap if you don't get ripped off, so you should check that taximeter is on.
There are also supermarkets around the corner and plenty of 24/7 stores where you can buy food.
It's only 2 minutes walk to Taksim Square and 1 minute walk to Istiklal.
// How to get there:
From the airport there is a Shuttle bus called “Havatas” directly to Taksim Square.The price from Sabiha Gokcen Airport on Asian side is 12 TL(turkish lira), from Ataturk Airport on European Side is 10 TL. Also you can take a taxi, approximately 40 TL. From Taksim Square you can walk to the apartment (2 min) or we can meet you once you arrive to the Taksim Square.
Have a great time in Istanbul!

본래 집주인인 Mary Jane은 베를린에 거주중이어서 친구인 알렉산드라를 만났어요.. 숙소가 골목에 있긴 하지만 탁심광장 버거킹 앞에서 상당히 가까운 편이어서 찾기도 좋았던 것 같아요. 그리고 그날 저녁..저 심심할까봐 본인의 친구와의 모임에 저를 초대해서 EFE를 맛보았네요..good!^^
이번 여행은 본의아니게 맥주와 함께!! 유후..ㅋㅋ
마지막 오는 날까지 여러 모로 도움을 많이 받아서 좋았습니다.
Very good apartment in very comfortable place in the center of Istanbul. To the Taksim square is literally couple minutes to walk.
The apartment is clean, neat with all you need.
Host is very friendly and hospitable, meet me explained how to reach place from Airport saving some liras:)
la experiencia fue positiva. mary jane fue muy atenta y estuvo a disposicion de nosotros. el departamento está bien ubicado, en taksim, es pequeño como se ve en las fotos y está en un tercero por escalera. pero la zona es tranquila y bien conectada.
We loved the perfect location close to Taksim Square...just few steps from the main pedestrian street of the city where you can find shops, places to dine and where you can taste a bit of local life (Sultanahmet is for tourists only). The flat is quite and clean and we had all basics to prepare a good breakfast (only 1 cooker out of 2 working though). Directions and replies from Mary Jane (Marianna) were clear and and her neighrbor pick us up at arrival. We couldn't meet her personally.
Alexandra was a great host! Fast response, very friendly and we could also drop our luggage at her place. The apartment in Taksim was very central and easy to reach by Havatas shuttle (5min walking). Our stay in Taksim was a nice experience!
I really enjoyed my stay here. The best and the deciding factor was its location. Its a minue away from the buzzing Taksim square. The flat is clean and as shown in the pictures. Infact it was bigger than it seems in the pictures. We were just 2 people, but this would have been great for 3 to 4 friends too. We did use the kitchen space to make us quick breakfast. I have already recommended this place to a few friends. The host was flexible or a late checkout,which was really kind. The hot water ran out during my shower for some reason I couldn't figure out. However it was working well the next day.

I am from Croatia and travelling is my greatest passion. After some time spent exploring different countries and cultures, I found my 2 loves - Istanbul and Berlin and we live together happily since.
My hobbies would include reading, writing, painting, photography, graphic design or anything else creative that I stumble upon.
I am mainly now in Berlin so my good friend Cem will be your contact and host in Istanbul apartments and I will welcome you in Berlin.
As big fans of Istanbul and Berlin, let us show you our cities from our perspective. Now it's time for us to welcome other travelers and visitors with the same amount of charm and hospitality as we got every time! :)
