We felt very welcome right away. Galata tower is a few meters away and we found some goor bars and restaurants next door.
Zehra is a great host and her apartment is beautiful. I want to live there. Absolutely no complaints about this experience, and look forward to going back.
We loved staying at Zehra's apartment, amazing 180 degree view of the old city and Istanbul skyline. Zehra's was very helpful on our arrival, the taxi driver couldn't find the apartment, despite it being right next to the Galata tower, one of the main attractions. On checkout, also very accommodating and allowed me to keep my bag at her shop until my flight was due. The area is wonderful with lots of little shops and restaurants. Recommend shopping here before getting lost in the grand bazaar. I'd definitely recommend staying here and if I'm ever in Istanbul would stay here again.
Zehra's apartment is well located, in new Istanbul, close to the Galata bridge that leads to old Istanbul. The neighborhood is the hardware-store district, very busy during the day and utterly deserted at night. But we had no security/safety issues.
We arrived very late at night, which can be a bit distressing because at first the neighborhood seems abandoned; but by morning's light everything was fine, it's a very busy place, and there's a convenience store with the basics just ten steps from the front door of the building.
The decor is as shown in the photographs; it is spacious, comfortable and clean.
Nights can be a bit short since the local shops open quite early and are very noisy, bring ear plugs if you want to sleep in!
The terrace on the roof of the building offers a lovely view of the Bosphorus and old Istanbul; we took full advantage of it.
We didn't actually get to meet Zehra but she was very responsive via email.
Thank you Zehra for our lovely stay!
We loved our stay, the flat is light and airy with the most amazing views. A glass of fizz on the terrace with the Galata Tower as our neighbour was special.
The beds are comfortable, linen clean and fresh. Walking out of the front door and being surrounded by shops and bars meant after a busy day seeing sights the evening could be relaxed and comfortable with a short stagger home.
The stairs are formidable so vital to pack light and be well prepared to avoid nipping back for something forgotten!
We arrived very late as our flight was delayed but this was no problem everything made very easy.
I recommend staying here.
Bright, clean and cozy.
The view from the rooftop is special!
Very charming neighborhood.
Zehra is very friendly.
I will definitely come back!
Wow. This place is truly an absolute gem in the best location in Istanbul. The front door is just steps from Galata tower - and the view from the deck almost matches the views from the tower itself! Zehra was quick to respond to any questions and very lovely to deal with. Such a perfect base for our girls holiday away. I couldn't rate it enough. It's worth the 5 flights of stairs every time you return back to this stunning abode.
Zehra and her sister were great, apartment was nicely appointed, the rooftop view is great, everything went smoothly.
The view from the terrace and the living-room is quite breathe taking, one of the best in town.. Though, we were surprised that the announced two rooms were at the end 1 room - with a door and the 2nd more a bed than a room, with no door and no bathroom. Also, there is no AC, which in summer is quite hard to handle. Good staying globally but in my opinion the flat is expensive for the standing, that does not reflect the pictures.
Just as described. The location was central to everything we wanted to do. Loved being able to wash our clothes since it was so hot when we visited. We were in touch with Zehra when we needed anything or had questions.
Would book again!
