Very nice place to stay - also Bilgehan is an understanding person and when we had to cancel a part of our stay due to an uncontrolled event, he was willing to help. Definitely recommend him as a host who'll take good care of you.
The apartment was great! Amazing view especially from rooftop. Nice to fall asleep with the seagulls. Very quiet and clean. Great location. 6 floors really manageable if you're reasonably fit ( which you need to be to walk up and down cihangir!). Could benefit from newer fuŕniture and lounge chairs on the terrace but i guess this would mean a higher price. Very easy check in and out and very reactive host. Would definitely come back if back in istanbul.
Fantastic apartment. Spacious, modern inside. Great neighbourhood outside . Incredible views of city from balcony and roof. Great helpful host.
avons eu en excellent contact par mail avec notre hote qui n'étant en Turquie, mais tres facilement joignable. L'appartement est tres agréable avec vue superbe et belle terrasse apres avoir monté les 5 etages à pied. le quartier est tout pres de Istiklal.
Wir hatten eine fantastische Zeit in Istanbul und er perfekte Ausgangspunkt war diese Wohnung. von Balkon und Dachterrase hat man einen unvergesslichen Blick über das ganze Zentrum. Von der Wohnung aus kann man vieles zu Fuß machen. So sind z.B. der Galatatower mit schönen Restaurants und buntem Nachtleben, die Galatabrück über das Goldene Horn mit den Fähranlegern und dem Fischmarkt, die Haupteinkaufsstraße zum gemütlichen Shopping alle zu Fuß zu erreichen. Um schnell auf die andere Seite des Goldenen Horns zu kommen fährt 3 Minuten entfernt eine Straßenbahn, die einen direkt zu allen Sehenswürdigkeiten bringt.
Bilgehan ist sehr freundlich und hat sich von Anfang bis Ende perfekt um uns gekümmert, hat uns seitenweise Tips gegeben und war immer super schnell zu erreichen. Er spricht sehr gut Englisch und Deutsch.
Wir würden beim nächsten Istanbultrip auf jeden Fall wieder bei ihm wohnen wollen.
Bilgehan's apartment in Cihangir is an airy functional space with great natural light and amazing 180 degree views. We stayed 2 weeks and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The best bit is that you can save money by shopping at well supplied local markets and shops and cook gloriously fresh and tasty Turkish produce in the well equipped kitchen, then eat alfresco out on your spacious private top floor balcony while the sunsets over Istanbul. Great location. Cusp of cihangir and tophane so easy access to tram stops and karakoy ferry. The neighborhood is perfect blend of new and funky shops/ cafes and more traditional local shops so not too touristy or too cool for school. The apartment is clean and comfortable without being too swanky. It is up 88 steps which is totally worth the views, but may not be suitable for weak knees. Even if it rains there are 180 degree views from inside the flat thanks to the well placed windows. Big thanks to the host for all his tips. Thoroughly recommend this place.
Trés agréable appartement bien situé dans le vivant quartier de Cihanghir.
Calme et jolies vues surtout du toit terrasse ... Proche du tram.
Le contact avec Bilge est formidable : toujours disponible, réponses rapides aux petites questions pratiques et arrivée facilitée.
Bilgehans apartment - and especially the roof terrace - is absolutely awesome! Everything was perfectly organised and we definitely would stay again, next time we visit the gorgeous city of Istanbul.

I stayed at Bilgehan's flat for two days and really enjoyed it. The location is really great, the flat is large (but still cozy) and has some great character with the piano and the furniture and windows and the terrace. The views from the flat are fantastic and the apartment is exactly as advertised. Bilgehan was not there, but he had someone meet us at the flat to get the keys and communication was very easy. Everything went just fine and we enjoyed are stay in Instanbul immensely. Thanks Bilgehan!
overall quite enjoyable staying. functional space, cozy atmosphere, great view. good located. minor cons/a bit overpriced. great plus, Bilgehan's trip advices.
Bilgehan is my broher and we lived as neighbors for 9 years.
There are no walls in the house and lots of windows; so its quite bright inside.
You can spend nights/days at the balcony with its beautiful view.
The apartment is very central, close to transport, shops, bars and restaurants.
He is a good host and i recommend him for sure...
Bilgehan is a good friend of mine and has a beautiful cosy apartment to rent. His apartment is very central, close to transport, shops, bars and restaurants. The apartment itself is very comfortable and bright, and has a beutiful terrace where on many occasions I enjoyed meals and drinks while watching the old neighbourhood and city lights. I know for sure Bilgehan is a great host and great friend, I would highly recommend renting from him.
Bilgehan and I are both Istanbul/Berlin nomads but I guess he chose one of the sides! I know him since 2006 and can vouch for his honesty! The flat is amazingly located and you'll feel in the city center but still at peace. Short or long stay I really recommend the place!.
I am a friend of Bilgehan and stayed at his apartment several times, as he is away a lot. The terrace is a blast and the place is so nice and sunny - a place to feel home. I miss the sound of the city from the balcony... It has such a good atmosphere and is very central to everything. I picked up the key from his brother who lives just next door. He is a very sweet guy and speaks perfect English. On your way to Istanbul? - this is where to stay!
