Zehra's appartement is extremely well located. Great view and nice stylish atmosphere. Everything was clean and ready when we arrived. Zehra responded very fast to our messages and was very helpful. The only low was the noise : the flat's sound insulation was quite bad and the neighborhood is known for being loud.
Vielen Dank, dieses Appartment bietet alles was einen Istanbul Aufenthalt perfekt werden lässt: ausgezeichnete Lage (sehr gute Verkehrsanbindung, sehr nah zu allen wesentlichen hot spots, trendiges Viertel, kleiner Nachteil: in der Nähe gibt es nur beschränkt Einkaufsmöglichkeit, man wohnt eben im Zentrum), dazu sehr modern eingerichtet: große Fenster nahezu rundherum machen die Räume sehr sehr hell, zu dem hat man eine super Aussicht; die Terrasse auf dem Dach wird wohl gemeinschaftlich genutzt - auch ein toller Blick, war jetzt aber zu kalt zum Sitzen;
Zehra hilft extrem schnell per airbnb/mail und Telefon (es gibt eine Liste mit Tipps + WLAN Zugangsdaten), dazu war sie eine große Hilfe beim airport Transfer!! Kann man super empfehlen!
Host: very nice helpful person
Location: very central, perfect for daytrips also to the old district of istanbul, easy to get to the airport (IST) by public transport, however very noisy district, at the first moment the street looks a bit dangerous (not lighted in the night) but in fact it is not a problem. within 5 min walk you reach the best places (e.g. Galata Tower), bars. restautants etc...
Appartment: Very beautiful as you can see on the provided pictures, however as mentioned before, very noisy!!! without earplugs it is only hardly possible to take a sleep.
In fact we enjoyed the stay in this appartment and would come again...
I enthusiastically recommend Zehra's apartment. The location is absolutely superlative as you can very easily walk to most of Istanbul's major tourist sites (Galata Tower, Istiklal St, Grand Bazaar, Aya Sofia, etc) and you're just a short 4 minute walk from the Karakoy tram station. The apartment was clean and nicely furnished. The beds were comfortable and the bathroom very appealing with plenty of hot water. As a few other reviewers have mentioned, the apartment can be rather noisy as it's located in a bustling, hardware district. If you require absolute silence to sleep, this might not be the best location for you, but if you're looking for a terrific location to launch your Istanbul explorations, it will be hard to find a better value than Zehra's apartment
Zehra was an excellent hostess. The apartment was located conveniently in the middle of istanbul. We walked everywhere and enjoyed the flat. I would highly recommend staying here if you're planning to walk to the Sultanhemet and the istiklal/Taksim area. It is smack in the middle between the two and really close to the Galata bridge and tower.
Zehra was responsive and helpful before and during our stay. I would come back and stay here!
We had a thoroughly comfortable experience staying at Zehra's contemporary loft in Karakoy. Zehra was responsive from the very beginning, had brilliant suggestions, and did a fantastic job designing her apartment. The apartment is located in a small, quiet building with only four units in Karakoy. The location is perfect as you're right in between the Galata Tower and the Eminonu bridge. What struck me the most about the apartment were three things: the cleanliness/design, the perfect view of the Suleymaniye mosque (which you can see from the bed!), and Zehra's fresh flowers throughout the apartment. We highly recommend Zehra's beautiful, well-located apartment, and hope we get the chance to stay there again someday soon.
Beautiful apartment.... felt like home! I extended my time here because I didn't want to leave. Great area of the city and easy walking to the shops, cafes around Galata Tower. Loved every minute of my time here. Zehra is an exceptional host.... available if there is any issue and incredibly friendly.
L'appartement est sympathique, bien que situé dans le quartier des magasin de quincaillerie. La vue est sur la terrasse du toit, pas de l'appartement. Il est préférable de ne pas le louer pendant l'hiver rude car assez mal isolé.
Die Gastgeberin hat uns prima eingeführt und Tips gegeben.
Das Apartment entsprach absolut der Beschreibung und die Lage ist genial.
Kurzum: wir waren topzufrieden! Auch wenn es - wie es halt in einer Stadt ist - manchmal recht laut zu geht. Vielleicht mag nicht jeder das Quartier, aber wir haben die Authentizität sehr geschätzt.
Zehra was a fantastic host and made us feel very at home in Istanbul. The apartment is amazing. So beautiful and in an excellent location. The views from the roof deck are incredible. I would highly recommend this apartment to anyone looking for a home away from home in a magnificent city.
