Hatice is an easy going, friendly and very nice host. She came to meet us when we arrived at Taksim. The room is very spacious and flat is very well located and is very easy to get to. It is also warm and well heated as we were there during winter. There are coach transfers to Ataturk Airport that departs not far from the flat so it is very convenient.
Hatice place was great for our one week stay! It is exactly what we needed! A great location, comfortable large room and bed, and a helpful hostess. Hatice met us in Taksim and kindly took us back to the apt. She was always available for any questions we had. Recommend this place for its location and Hatice kindness!
We had a great 1-week-stay at Hatice's place. The appartement is in a good location really close to taksim and on the same time quiet. The room is big and comfortable. Hatice is a great host, helpful and easygoing.
A very friendly host. Quick response on inquiry. Perferct place for a short stay in Istanbul. It's on an quiet and authentic street and still a short wolk to the nocturnal inferno of Taksim:)
Hatice offers a large room at a convenient location, close to Taksim square (Metro) with good facilities nearby. Transfer to and from the airport is convenient as well. The Taksim neighborhood is very lively, especially on weekends. Very good value for money: recommended.
My girlfriend and I loved staying with Hatice. She made us feel welcome in her home and introduced us to her friends. Her apartment is just outside of Taksim square so it is a really great location for the money.
Overall my stay at Hatiçe's apartment was enjoyable and without incident. Location is convenient to Istanbul's major sights and the room is spare but comfortable. Hatiçe made herself available for any questions and issues that arose, and is really an all-around nice person. Anyone that needs a budget room in Istanbul shouldn't hesitate to get in touch with her!
Hatice is a nice host and her apartment recommendable. We stayed for five nights at her place which is just a stone's throw from Taksim Square and you can easily walk to Istiklal and even Kabatas from where ferries to the Asian side of Istanbul and the Princes Islands leave regularly. A friend of Hatice picked us up from Taksim Square, gave us the keys and even though Hatice was quite busy during our stay she was really friendly. Thanks Hatice!
Hatice is very friendly and helpful. She was always available to help, despite being in a dificult work períodod. She allowed us to use any thing we needed in the apartment. The location is very good for the price. The room is large and clean, and despite having no air conditioning, the night is cooler and the fan helped a lot, we had cold in the morning. The only bad thing about this apartment is the half bathroom, which Hatice warns in the ad because when showering everything gets wet.
We stayed 5 nights with Hatice and had a great time. The room is really big and has a big window that opens up. Hatice is a fantastic host. She made us feel very comfortable from the beginning and greeted us with a big bowl of cherries. It's also a great location with two little 24 hour local grocery stores near by and very close to Taksim Square.
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
