Originally from İstanbul, after studying comparative literature i've decided to focus on short term rentals to meet new people all around the world and share the beauties of İstanbul.
The Topkapı Room is not just an apartment but more likely a hotel room. Location is superb. In front of Ferry terminal so I could go to Asian side of Istanbul easy. Also the fish market and terrace seating restaurants are there. The room itself is in white theme, nice and clean, all the luxury hotel style amenities are available. Nükhet is kind and sweet, she arranged my taxi for returning to the airport after check-out. If you like lively local atmosphere, this is the place for you.
L'accueil et l'équipe de gérants est au top : ultra disponibles (ils sont sur place au premier dans les bureaux de 9h à 18h si besoin), très serviables, avec un sens remarquable du service client. Ils parlent anglais, français, et sont aux petits soins (organisation des pick up à l'aéroport, ou tuyaux sur les bons taxis, adresses de bons restaurants dans le coin…) : merci, c'est vraiment parfait.
L'appartement du dernier étage, Sultanahmet Apartment, est sublime : vue extraordinaire sur le croissant d'or, magnifique appart avec de belles prestations (on aime la machine Nespresso et les capsules offertes, on aime les bouteilles d'eau pétillante au frigo et l'eau minérale pour les enfants. Une salle de bain sur l'arrière sent un peu mauvais (canalisations), mais une superbe expérience des 3 nuits passées dans cet appartement prévu pour 6. Un endroit rare bourré de charme pour vivre l'Istanbul authentique, voire romantique ;)
Galata Studio & Aya Sofya Room sont au RDC, derrière les barreaux; la décoration est de bon goût et les prestations sensiblement comparables, mais finie la belle vie : le restaurant est ultra bruyant, les sanitaires empestent les égouts (un vrai problème). Le rapport qualité/prix de cette location laisse là à désirer, dommage.
Les gérants envisagent d'installer des chambres au premier étage, là où sont installés leurs bureaux pour l'instant : ce serait une tellement bonne idée!
It was amazing , this place has excellent view and The location is great ! Thanks for everything
A perfect location to see the sites but not so perfect if you want a quiet location. The fish market is straight outside your window, the ferry terminal is just beyond the fish market, and the bars under the bridge are a stone throw away. However, if you are able to keep your windows shut and keep the air conditioning on then it doesn't affect you. It was very clean and a nice size room. The shower was a little broken but we never went to ask for it to be fixed, and I'm sure if we had they would have fixed it because they were very willing to help.
Overall a good central location with very friendly and helpful hosts.
Es hat alles perfekt geklappt. Die Wohnung war in einem sehr guten Zustand! Es war alles vorbereitet, die Lage war perfekt, jederzeit wieder! Besten dank an nükhet für die tolle zeit in Istanbul!
The apartment was very well kept, clean and spacious. There were some things that we didn't know prior to our arrival, however: due to its central location and placement directly above restaurants it was nearly impossible to sleep before 3 am. There was constant music, and almost no insulation.
There was also a very noticeable stagnant water smell in one of the bathrooms.
The cleaning fee was also a bit high. Overall, clean, nice apartment, but the outside factors really detracted from ambiance.
Great house, great view, perfect location, friendly staf. Absolute must if you are with a group.
7 of us stayed in the Sultanahmet Apartment earlier this month and had a wonderful time. Nukhet greeted us on the first day and gave us a tour of the space, fresh towels in hand. She had even turned on the radiators in anticipation of our arrival! Knowing that the dining room only held 6 chairs, Nukhet came by later our first night with a 7th chair, which was very kind and thoughtful of her.
The apartment is very clean with a lot of natural light. We all agreed that the view from the apartment might be the best in the city, as the living room looks out onto the Golden Horn, the Galata bridge, and the many local fishermen out for their daily catch. There is also a wonderful restaurant right outside the apartment building where we sat and drank delicious Turkish tea and Efes, the local beer.
The apartment is in a great location, just a few minutes walk from the tram, the Tunel, and a short walk across the bridge to the Spice Market. The beds were comfortable, the water pressure in the showers was perfect with even some soap and shampoo ready for us to use. Nukhet even helped arrange a laundry service for us. Even though we sent out our clothes the morning of our departure, the clothes came back in time for our 4 pm flight.
Overall, great apartment, great location!
I spent a week with my family in Sultanahmet Apartment on February. It was a overall great stay.
The location is awesome, a few meters from Galata bridge, and from a funicular that takes you to Beyoglu (Istiklal street) and from a tram that takes you to the old city where most of the historical monuments are.
The neighborhood, however, is not very nice, and the building stays in a shady area. We didn't feel safe coming home late at night, and the building is not easily accesible to taxis. There is a fish market right in front of the building and many fishermen stores around. So if you're looking for glamour tha's probably now the best option.
The apartment is beautiful, very spacious and comfortable, the bedrooms are huge, the closets are big, the bathrooms are well equiped, good shower, towels and hair dryer. The view is incredible.
However, the kitchen is very small and there was a strange smell, we had to keep the door closed at all times.
I would reccomend this apartment and would stay there again next time in Istanbul.
The apartment is nice and clean, with tasteful furniture. The location is excellent if you would like to explore historical sites Sultanhamet, etc. and the modern 'trendy' Istanbul of Galata, Beyoglü, Taksim, etc.. It is equally easy to catch a ferry to the Asian side just in front of the appartment
However, be aware that you are in the middle of a lively fishmarket - we enjoyed the authentic atmosphere and the good fish restaurants nearby.
Nükhet was a lovely guest. The communication was always nice and she left the apartment perfectly tidy.
