Stayed in the apartment for 4 nights and loved every moment! Burak was very helpful in case we had some questions and the apartment was a delight! The view itself was worth the money alone but the rooms were spacious, very well equipped kitchen and also had no problems with a 10 month old baby. It is situated very close to all the main tourist attractions so did not need any transportation really. also the fish market is close so picking up some fresh fish from there and cooking it at the apartment is a treat. Thanks very much Burak!
already in the investigations before arriving in istanbul everything went very well. the handing over of the keys worked fine. The apartment was exactly like the photos (perhaps even nicer). The apartment is located perfect. everything ist near by. On the second day we drank a coffee together and got lots of good tips from burak, what we could do. one thing is certain, our next visit in istanbul will be with him again ...
thx burak for everything!!
Great neighborhood close to authentic good local food and convenient transport (better location in my view than Sultanahmet). Burak was also very accommodating with our arrival and departure times which made a big difference (06:00 arrival.....) Not noisy and good views. I'd be back.
Our experience at Burak's apartment was absolutely unforgettable.
From the first second you enter this amazing apartment you understand you found the diamond. Seriously!
Let's start with the view, because it is so spectacular. You will see the Bosphorus flowing under your feet, just beyond Istanbul's roofs, while on the sides you can see the Golden Horn and the Bosphorus bridge (on the other side of the apartment you will see the Galata Tower literally in front of you).
Moreover the apartment's interior is really pure and beautiful, you directly feel at home and it is so calm and quiet, for such a lively city it is quite impressive.
I could speak about this place for while, but let's finish with the fact that is just so perfectly located. In a neighborhood with awesome coffee shops and small shops, you will be just a stone's throw from the most beautiful attractions.
This apartment was all we wanted.
I cannot say enough good words about Burak and the apartment. It was a fantastic location, comfortable to the point we called it home. Burak met us personally and got us sorted out quickly, plus is is just an all around nice person. We will be back at his place when In Istanbul for certain. You can't go wrong with this place!
The reservation was canceled 7 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Istanbul is a wonderful city and we had a fantastic time, a lot of it was to do with the amazing apartment!! Unbeatable views, both from the front and the back, best location in Istanbul for sure, right there in the heart of the best part of Istanbul! The host Burak was really helpful and gave us cards for the public transport! He was so helpful, and a nice guy too, could text him at any time about anything with an immediate response...I feel very lucky to have found this place so I highly recommend it to anyone who wants to visit Istanbul for sure!! I will be back! Thanks Burak!

You are most welcome anytime, my place was almost cleaner than I gave it to you guys :)
Have a great trip
Все было отлично, замечательная квартира, очень просторная и чистая. Все обставлено со вкусом, жить в ней одно удовольствие.
Бурак - приятный и гостеприимный хозяин, встретил ночью и помог нам со всеми туристическими проблемами.
Burak was a great host. He waited us to lend us the keys and show us around the house and explain everything we needed to know. The house is wonderful, newly restored and decorated with great taste and it's located right under Galata tower from where you can reach in few minutes everything you need to see and do. Besides we enjoyed one of the best view of the Bosforus you can possibly have from his terrace. I would absolutely rent it again for any other time in Istanbul!
A lovely couple, nice. The apartment was completely clean after they leave.
I recommend :)
Burak and his girlfriend were my guests for two nights, they are nice and respectful people, very independent. You can say they are good travellers!
We really enjoyed meeting you guys and hope the rest of your trip was wonderful!!! I hope you come back again someday...One Love!
Burak and his friend are very polite and dit not bother about the two street cats that come to our patio for food ( a cat mammy and his kitten) , they even liked it, do not hesitate to welcome them at your place.
Burak is a great guest! Happy to have him here. Followed rules, and kept things neat. Looking forward for his next visit!
burak's flat may have the one of the best views in Istanbul. Very well decorated, new and clean. And literally "in the heart of city". he is also a good friend of mine. Cool, polite, laid back, intellectual and good host. Anyone who hires his apartment will enjoy his good friendship and great flat.
Burak is a close friend whom we had the pleasure to experience his hospitality during dinners & get-togethers on many occasions at his own place.
Now that he has moved to his new home, it is more than a bliss to visit him there and enjoy the view on both sides of the flat.
Burak oversaw all the renovation works and did so with great taste. I find the flat's style in perfect harmony with Galata neighbourhood: chic but also bohemian, cool but also cosy, convenient but elegant as well...
Galata is one of the best neighbourhoods to stay at during an Istanbul trip, and having lived almost all my life in a flat with a great view on the bosphorus, I'd say Burak's home's double-view surpasses that by far.
Definitely a must-stay flat & charming host!
