Ozgen and Deniz are great hosts and the apartment is really well located at the best neighbourhood in Istanbul. Although the room is small, it is comfortable and totally fine. I recommend this apartment and I'll certainly stay there again when I come back to the town :)
I had a good stay. I loved the neighborhood. I didn't see Ozgen or Deniz much - they were either out or in their rooms, but when I did see them, I certainly liked them both. They did send me a text to see if I needed anything one night as they were out, which was sweet.
The room is small but comfortable. If you have a big suitcase there won't be much room for it. You can't really unpack. The photos are accurate but have that overexposed quality that so many airbnb photos have that make everything look shiny and freshly painted. The noise from the doors that go the bathroom and to Ozgen and Deniz's room travels easily through the only window in the bedroom - so for light sleepers it could be rough as you hear all their coming and going.
For the price though, it's a really good deal. And it was great having a living room I hang out in and do some computer work on.
staying with ozgen was a pleasure. she was really friendly and helpful, and has a knack for drawing maps of her hip neighborhood, cihangir. she also gave me good tips and advice about istanbul. the room was as small as it looks, but enough space. i think it's important to note for the summer: the room doesn't have windows, so it got a bit stuffy in there.
Ì had a really nice time at Ozgen and Deniz’s place. They are really nice and helped me with a lot of local recommendations, always with a “map” on some piece of paper to help (I really appreciated it, so kind!). The room is ok and the area is great, local not so touristic so you can feel more Istanbul as a city. Thank you girls!
I had a great time in Istanbu! Özgen and Deniz are very easy going and helpful. Thanks alot!
Ozgen! i would say thank you! Deniz, thank you , for being the sweetest hosts ever.
Girls, you rock :)
I appreciate the area, the place, the contact,..discovering the lovely neighborhood, walking all around... It's quiet safe, calm and fancy
Next time i will be in Istanbul, i could not imagine myself being in another place, as i m feeling come back home :)
Keep rocking :)
Perfect location - Best price !
- 2 minutes on foot to taksim square(istiklal street) - 10 minutes to seaside
- Great display of Turkish hospitality by Özgen , Deniz and PONPON ! Loveliest cat i have ever met =)
- You may think that the room is so small but personally i think its great for a good nights sleep
While enjoying my time in Istanbul i felt at home thanks to my hosts.
Highly recommended ! - Worth every cent you pay
Ozgen and Deniz were so accommodating and nice. I was blown away by their hospitality. They both showed me around Istanbul and are genuinely great people. The apartment is centrally located near all of the best bars and restaurants as well as public transportation.
I would love to stay here again...
The room is shown exactly as the pictures posted and I think the price is fair. It is small but I was able fit all my things inside and the apartment is cozy and clean. Ozgen and Deniz were very kind, friendly and helpful hosts. They showed me around the neighborhood, taught me Turkish and made sure I was okay. The location is near Taksim Square and Istiklal, where the shops are but far enough from the noise. It is also near an amazing panoramic view of the city next to the water. If I were to return to Istanbul, I would definitely stay here again. And their cat is very friendly, too!
Ozgen and Deniz were really sweet and very welcoming. The room is small, but the picture is very accurate so I was not surprised or disappointed. With their help, I visited some interesting places in Istanbul I would not have otherwise visited. Thank you, Ozgen and Deniz!
