We absolutely loved the apt smack dab at Beyoglu. Witnessed a local vibe which was perfect! The host who handed over our keys ( Burga Erol) was indeed outstanding, always helpful and chatty.
The flat was airy, spacious cross ventilation with awesome views of roofs and the skyline. The ONLY thing room for improvement if I may add is the toilet. Can be squeaky clean!!
Otherwise I will definitely go back to the apt!!
Thanks once again !!
we had a great time in Istanbul! we didn't meet Mevlut but Hannah was very helpful via e-mails and Bugra was super great in checking us in and out- very helpful and sweet.
great location, wonderful fruits and vegetables shops down the street- open till very late at night. lively area but quiet with no tourists. only 5 minutes from istiklal.
the apartment is exactly like in the pictures - specious and nice. the only down side is the mattress which needs a replacement. but I'm sure they can take care of that (:
The apartment is conveniently located near the main shopping street and Taksim.
Mevlüt was very quick in his communication and helped with any questions we had. He even gave our taxi driver from the airport directions to the apartment, even though he was at work. We were warmly welcomed by his friend and given good recommendations on what clubs and restaurants to check out.
The apartment is very spacious and could easily accommodate four persons. The rear bedroom is very quiet and we could sleep very well in this otherwise bustling city.
The only downside: the apartment was not very clean – both bathroom and kitchen had some residual dirt/leftovers from previous inhabitants. If you are not touchy about cleanliness we would strongly recommend this apartment.
The flat was comfi and in a good location. It was easy to get there and it was a great place to hang out after the days in the pulsating city of Istanbul! Loved it. Only small con: we only found a mini pot when we wanted to cook for ourselves one night ;-)
This is truly a gem in Istanbul, literally within walking distance of Istiklal street, the Galata tower and the surrounding streets that become the center of fun at night, and the tram that takes you to many of the sights and the unforgettable Grand Bazaar. The streets leading to the apartment may seem a little scary at first, but they are completely safe, we never managed to get home before 2 am, and we never had any unpleasant experiences. The balcony is a something you will never have at one of the nearby sterile hotels, and we spent several hours at and after sunset on it admiring the view and having a few drinks after the busy day. The apartment itself is very authentic, has everything you need, and Mevlüt is always a text message away to provide you with anything you need. If surgical sterility is the most important factor for you, I would probably recommend a hotel - but then again, you should probably think twice before you choose Istanbul as your destination. If you do, however, I think Mevlüt's place is one of your best options. All the other people I traveled with stayed at hotels, and they were all very jealous after I showed them the photos I took from the balcony.
So, in short, highly recommended.
We kicked off our honeymoon with four nights in Mevlüt's charming top-floor apartment. The place was clean with great amenities like a hair dryer, washer, and well-stocked kitchen. The bed was comfortable--had the best sleep in months in the apartment. It's close to all the action on Istikal, but quiet enough to relax. We highly recommend staying here!
We had a very nice stay in Mevlüt's apartment. Clean, comfy, and just a short 3min walk from İstiklal Avenue. Perfect for staying a few nights and getting to know Istanbul.
Our Istanbul experience was fantastic, A lot due to the nice apartment. The location is quite ideal, very close to Istiklal, in the middle of the way between Galata and Taksim, in a very nice area. The listing is very accurate. The place is comfortable and well kept. There was a problem with the Wifi on the first day, we were informed right when we came and it was fixed by the end of the day. Mevlut is very nice and helpful. He gave us very clear instructions regarding arrival and departure and was waiting for us with a smile and willingness to answer any question.
Очень уютная квартира с отличным видом с балкона и хорошим расположением.
Приветливый хозяин, помог нам по всем вопросам, которые возникли.
Единственное, нужно заранее предупредить, если нужен второй комплект постельного белья.
Nice and spacious in center of Istanbul... The flat is in a very typical quiet street, at 5 minutes of Isktidal street.
We are very happy with our stay in this nice appartment.
Recibí por unos días a Mihran, amigo personal de Mevlut, y ha sido un huésped maravilloso, muy respetuoso, simpático y prolijo. Se dieron buenos diálogos de intercambio cultural, es bienvenido siempre y lo recomiendo !
Thank you. Enjoy Cordoba!
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.
