Zehra's apartment was fabulous! Spotlessly clean, comfy bed, cotton sheets and all very stylish. We were only in Istanbul for one night (unfortunately), but we managed to do a lot in 24 hours. Her apartment is ideally situated between cool neighbourhoods and must-see sights. We walked everywhere and I'm sure we could have been more efficient by learning how the tram system worked, but we didn't have time for that. Communication was easy and quick and from arrival to departure things went smoothly - important for a short stay. I would not hesitate to recommend it to friends and I would definitely stay there again if the opportunity presented itself!
Zehra's flat is nothing less, but beautiful. It's also very well located, only a short walk away from the Galata Tower and the harbor. Communication with Zehra was easy and pleasant, she was always there when we needed her and quick to reply with helpful information. I can only recommend Zehra and this nice flat for your stay in Istanbul.
We absolutely loved the apartment! Spacious, full of light, and with glorious views.
It is a comfortable living space for sure.
The stairs to the apartment are as expected, and after any walking through old Istanbul not daunting for the savvy traveler. However the stairs in the apartment to the bedrooms is a bit precarious.
The terrace gives you a view which competes with the neighboring Galata Tower!
We loved it. Zehra's store is conveniently located across the street, though we never actually met her.
Would definitely stay there again.
We like Zehra's apartment, it's charming, bright , have many windows. The kitchen and living room is big, and bed room very comfortable. We have a happy time in her apartment.
Zehra is a very lovely and helpful person. Everything went really smooth and without ptoblems .She gave us good advice about restos and places to go. Communication via whatsapp was easy and fast. The flat is great. the location is the best. We enjoyed our trip
Zehra was a wonderful host! She was very responsive and even helped arrange for a cab to take us to the airport at 3am. Although the neighborhood is a bit off putting at first, the place is incredibly lovely. There's a tea shop running out of the first floor of the building, so don't be surprised by it when you arrive. The apartment is very well located. It's close to the Galata Tower and lots of great restaurants and bars. Definitely follow her list of places to eat; you won't go wrong with picking a restaurant from that list. I would definitely recommend staying here!
Having been to Istanbul tens of times over the past 15 years, I can safely say this property has the best views I have ever seen. Beats any hotel suite hands down. I'd stay here again for sure.
The location is perfect, right at the Galata Tower in a lively neighbourhood, with ATM and taxi rank downstairs next to cafes. Dont stay in Sultanahment as too touristy, and this is a halfway house between that area, Galata-Karakoy and the trendyier Ortakoy-Bebek type areas further up the Bosphorous.
The apartment is spacious, with a bright big living and dining room on one floor, (huge glass widnows) and 2 comfortable double bedrooms upstairs. Fast internet.
The only drawback for people who go when it is summer is no AC, as you are on the top floors might be hot (I was there in mid June and leaving windows open was perfectly fine), and the owner says she can provide fans. The bedrooms are quite bright even with all blinds down, not too much, but consider using an eye-cover to get total darkness.
The terrace is great, with a hammock, you wont need to go up the Galata Tower itself as you are literally 20 metres below its viewing deck!
No elevator, so its 5 flights of stairs, but good exercise. Not good if you have kids with prams perhaps!
We spent 10 nights at Zehra's loft. We didn't meet Zehra but met her sister Ozlem. Ozlem was fantastic, she spoke to the taxi driver on the way from the airport and met us at the loft. She was very helpful and made us feel at home. She was available to answer any of our queries.
The loft is as described, bright,clean and spacious. We had a very comfortable stay. A bonus was the clothes washing machine. The roof terrace was a good place to relax after a long day of sightseeing.
The loft is close to the the Gelata bridge and Tower and the tram stop.
The neighborhood is so interesting. It is like being in a bazaar. During the day the street is filled with the shop owners hawking their wears and the tea wallas running to and fro. At night the area is not too noisy. The food shop owners were very friendly and I would highly recommend the UstaEller restaurant in the lane opposite the loft. It serves authentic Turkish breakfasts and lunches with very friendly service.
All in all we had a great stay at the loft and would highly recommend it.
Sejour parfait! Appartement idealement situé (3 min à pieds de la Tour de Galata, tram, bons resto tt proches), très propre et terrasse comme atout supplémentaire. Ozlem s est rendu tres dispo (elle nous a notamment trouvé une solution rapidement lorsque ne nous avons eu besoin d un serrurier!) . Je reviendrai sans hésiter!
Zehra's apartment in Kadikoy was fantastic. We loved the decor, the area was fantastic, and a v short walk from great transport links as well as sights such as the galata tower. Would definitely recommend to anyone wanting to explore Istanbul!
