I had many guests from very different countries. Now I am sure that good people are in all over the world. That was a pleasure to know you.

We stayed at Ruby and Camellia with a group of 11 people - and if I 'll ever come big with such a big bunch I ll go there again. The flats are charming and as seen on the pictures, no bad surprises, comfy beds, the area is perfect and what I liked the most, the hosts give it a lovely air, they were caring also before we arrived, during our stay (we had one little incident where we needed their help and they were there caring about it within 10 min) and even had a little present for all of us :)
Nous avons séjourné une semaine (4 adultes et 2 ados) dans l'appartement de Soraj qui avait organisé efficacement pour nous le transfert aller retour de l'aéroport de Sabiha à l'appartement.
Bel appartement malgré la déco un peu kitch, spacieux et bien équipé. Le quartier est calme; multiples petits commerçants (boulangerie, épiceries, etc...) proches de la rue. Hammam à 2 pas mais nous ne l'avons pas testé.Très accessible aux transports publics (carte Istanbulcard fournie, à recharger) pour visiter les principaux sites.Tél portable local fourni. Plusieurs guides en anglais disponibles.
Nous recommandons donc cette adresse pour sa situation mais aussi pour la gentillesse de Soraj et Apo. Nous nous sommes perdus dans Istanbul le 1er soir et Soraj nous a aidé par tél à retrouver le bon chemin ! De même, nous avons eu un problème avec le frigidaire , Apo est passé et a reglé le problème dès le lendemain.
Nous sommes donc très satisfait de notre séjour. Merci à Apo pour son efficacité, ses conseils (restaurants) et sa discrétion.
Thanks to Soraj and Apo.
I did live in this appartment with 2 friends for 1 week in beginning of march 2014.
We were really statisfied with the flat and also the service. The rooms are big, there is free wifi and the bathroom as well as the kitchen were in a clean condition. When we arrived, the host showed us the flat and also went with us for a walk around the block to explain everything.
The area is pretty central. You can reach the main spots easily by Tram. Also, there is a metro station (Aksaray) which makes it easy to reach the Atatürk Airport (in about 30 minutes).
We stayed 5 nights in Soraj's beautiful apartment. It is on the 4th floor and is very clean and has everything you need. It is conveniient for exploring Istanbul and in a nice quiet neighbourhood with an excellent green grocer just round the corner. It is 10 mins to the nearest tram stop.
I really enjoyed my stay at this apartment. Soraj was an excellent and unobtrusive host, and the apartment was clean and well appointed. Since Soraj knew when I was arriving, he was able to keep and eye out for me, and get me into the apartment with no hassle at all. If I go back to Istanbul, I will want to stay here again.
it was a wonderful place exactly like the pictures
The Prince flat is strategically located in the centre of Fatih district so it doesn’t attract the expensive rental rate of Sultanahmet properties, but at the same time it is not that far away for us to walk to various tourist spots and bazaars.
To give you an idea, Grand Bazaar is 1 1/4 miles away and the Blue Mosque is 2 miles away. If you don’t fancy walking, the tram station is just 10 minutes’ walk from the flat which will take you pretty much anywhere in Istanbul.
The flat is nicely presented with a comfy living room, three bedrooms, two bathrooms, satellite TV, free Wi-Fi and fully equip kitchen (not that you’re going to need it – as kebab takeaways and restaurants are literally just around the corner – with even KFC, McDonalds or Burger King in Historia Mall just 5 minutes’ walk away)
At night, the neighbourhood comes alive with the local night market. It can get a little bit noisy (my daughter was awaken at 3am due to the noise outside) but nothing too serious.
The hosts, Soraj and Apo, are very accommodative. They gave us a mobile phone to use and also a travel card to get cheaper tram fares.
Overall we would definitely recommend it.
The accommodation is as described with 3 separate bedrooms and close to the Metro which is a 10 min walk away. Use their Istanbulcard and travel to the center is about 3TL. Large and Clean and with everything we needed as 3 friends visiting Istanbul. We were all able to have our own rooms and sit in the lounge in the evening to chat over a beer. Something we could not have done if we had booked into a hotel. Location is very much a local residential area and not at all touristic and we felt safe as men even returning at night. We like to stay in places where you live in normal residential areas.
The apartment is really great, clean and spacious for our family of three. Our host Omar met us on arrival and share all the information on the flat and even showed us around the neighbourhood!
Everything is within easy walking distance and nearest tram station to Sultanahmet close by.
We would really recommend you to stay there!!
Very nice accommodation, close to the center but really quiet at the same time.
everything one can need is provided.
Soraj was very helpful and polite and gave us all advice what we must do/see.
Thanks a lot)
I was in Istanbul last month and it was great.The apartment "Ruby" where my friends and I were accommodated was really good - location is great,near Taksim square and Istiklal street and there is good connection to different kinds of public transort (tram,metro,bus). It's fully equipped ( kitchen, fridge, washing and drying machine, iron and ironing board, 2 bathrooms, TV, internet...).Soraj,the host is very nice and friendly person and he helped us a lot.I definitely recommend you this apartment ,cause it's in great part of city and you will enjoy it.
Je connais Soraj depuis quleques anneeés. Il est un vrai professionnel. Il peut organiser parfaitment tout ce dont vous avez besoin. Il est trés aimable et serviable. Vous pouvez profiter trés bien de son amitié. Vous vous sentirez vite chez vous grâce à excellent son service. Une de ses qualités les plus importantes est qu'il est toujours ponctuel. Je suis sûr que vous apprécierez beaucoup sa coopération. Je lui conseille sans aucun doute!
From our initial contact with Soraj, we found him very professional to deal with.Soraj responded very quickly to all our communication. He kindly helped with carrying luggage to room and provided us with local information including recommended restaurants, bakeries and location of nearest metro etc. The apartment was wonderful, clean and modern as advertised. We recently spent five nights at Soraj's apartment and it was better than we could have imagined. We felt at home in the apartment, really comfortable and well equipped. We will tell everyone we know to stay here and will definitely stay again when we return to Istanbul.
We have found Soraj's place by a close friends advice and it was really worth it. I stayed there with my family. We were 8 people and flat was big enough for us to have a comfortable stay. Very nice place in a great location to explore the city. Good connections into every direction. It was really clean and cozy apartment. Soraj was very friendly and also helped us to explore the city. It was one of the most amazing holidays for us. I highly recommend Soraj's flat in Fatih to eveyone. I also want to thanks Soraj for his great hospitality.
Soraj was my classmate from Boğaziçi University.We know eachother about 10 years.When Soraj told me about airbnb and his desicion to let furnished flats I told him that is a great idea and I was sure he will be succesful in this business.After 1 year, I can see that I was right and he is doing his job excellent.Now we are working together and trying to give the best services to our guests.
