I am a rigger, flying effects specialist and climber in istanbul. I like extreme sports and doing extreme stunt work on movies, commercials and live shows...
The flat is cosy, charming, pretty and well located. We instantly felt at home!
It is in walking distance to Istiklal / downtown Beyoğlu and the little shop and wonderful bakery (try the cookies!) just around the corner are convenient for grocery shopping. The double bed is large and comfy and the shower is hot and strong.
We were picked up from a nearby meeting point by Mevlüts friend Alana, who was great. She also recommended a restaurant where we ended up twice since the food was so yummy.
Mevlüt is a very relaxed host - we met him when we popped by his warehouse/workspace later during our stay - and we had a great time in beautiful amazing Istanbul.
>> HIGHLY RECOMMENDED :-)
For us it has been the perfect home for one week in Istanbul. Cozy, calm an very well located.
Mevlut & Cihan are terrific hosts! They rescued us from a situation when we have rented another property only to discover upon arrival that it is absolutely unfit for living. I was able to inquire and book within minutes. And Cihan arrived 10 minutes later and helped us out with luggage and transportation. The apartment was airy, spacious and very charming. Everything was as described. We ended up enjoying our stay in Istanbul.
Everything was magical. I can't thank Mevlüt enough. And what a city! I recommend the Basilica Cistern. It was heartbreakingly beautiful.
My sister and I just went back from Istanbul and Mevlut's flat.
He and his collegue have been very kind and helpful with us, even in work days. The flat is big, clean and warm, located in the perfect neighbourhood: downtown but in a quiet area. We had nice time there.
We had a very good stay at the apartment and enjoyed it a lot. Especially after a long day in the crowded city it is great to "come home" to a quiet and comfortable place. Mevlüt, who is organising the renting of the apartment, was very warm and welcoming, explained a lot to us und was really a great host.
The apartment itself is fine and the terraces are absolutely fantastic (the bigger one has a spectacular view). You shouldn't be afraid of pigeons, who are sitting in the atrium (but if you are, it's probably not advisable to visit a big city like Istanbul at all) and you shouldnt expect a big wellness-experience in the bathroom. The apartment is very centrally located, lies in a small backstreet (which gets quiet dark at night as there isn't much street lighting) but we profited from the near distance to Istiklal Avenue a lot (there are definitely many good places to visit in walking distance). All in all: a very good stay and a BIG thank you to the nice host Mevlüt. We will miss the turkish coffee on the sunny terrace and keep that and everything else concerning our stay in great memory.
The place is clean,;big space,,, great location near to all shopping centre & food .. And after all Mevlüt super helpful and a kind person.
The flat is very nice, I can really recomend it to you; Mevlüt is very friendly and helpful, you can rely on him. We specially enjoyed that it was quiet during the night!
Very nice flat. Spacious and charming. Well located. Everything went well! I highly recommend this apartment. Thanks for everything Mevlut
We stood for a four day trip at the appartment from Mevlüt.
The flat is in 10 min distance to the main pedestrian street of Beyoglu in a side road.
At the fourth floor there is a quiet,clean and comfortable appartment with all you need.Mevlüt was a pleasant ,friendly man who explained all in satisfied manner.
I can advise all visitors to stay at his appartement.
Good communication , glad to have hosted .
It was very nice to have him as a guest! He is not only a very nice and smiley person, but also clean and caring person about your flat. Mevlut has an interesting job which you will be happy to hear his experiences. Finally, you will never be regretful hosting a guest like Mevlut :) any time again! It was a pleasure! Thank you!
All i have to say about Mevlut is that he is a great travel mate, a really funny guy and a good friend! You will definitely have fun with him!
Mevlüt is a very nice person. His place also looks very nice and comfy. İ had the chance to hang out with him in some activities. Keep your heart like that man :) Glad to meet you ....
Have a good one :)
I can safely say that Mevlüt is one of the reliable people that i know; We met with him and with his colleagues (Vertigo team) while i was working on my theatrical fashion show in 2007 and Vertigo team helped a lot during so many complicated conditions related to our show and our short movies. After i have seen his humanistic way of working, his friendship is very valuable for me. I trust Mevlüt, and i highly recommend everyone to taking the advantages of being in safe within well organized conditions those controlled by this good friend, and a responsible person.
Mevlüt is good friend of mine ,reliable and social..He has a very good resident which is clean and comfortable..I am sure u will like his hospitality and his joyful nature..
Mevlüt is a very close friend of mine, and he is also my former climbing instructor. So i trust him with my life. He is a smart person with peaceful nature. He has a comfy and clean apartment with English speaking neighbors. I am sure you will be happy to be his resident. He is a good host and a trustworthy guy.
Mevlut is an old friend; from the environmental movement. He is sincere, funny, and a guy which you can make long conversations about anything. I also love his apartment :)
I know Mevlüt more than one year. His kind, funny, helpful and a happy outdoor person. I know I'm gonna be always welcome his house.. house is nice decoreted, comfy and very close to downtown. by the way i love that swing.
As I know Mevlüt for long years,I can absolutely say that he is a reliable, perceptive, and funny guy. You will be pleased by his friendly manner.
Mevlüt is a dear friend of us. We will not hesitate to forward any requests we receive to him if our place is not available. Because he is a reliable person who cares about cleanliness and hospitality.
Mevlüt is a long time friend of mine. We also work together in our business called Vertigo Flying Effects and Industrial Climbing. Since I trust him with my life when we are on the rope, rigging or setting up anchors, I can easily tell that he is a trustworthy person. He would welcome you in his nice apartment with his calm and friendly manner.
