I am a 33 years old architect working at Ateliers Jean Nouvel in Paris ...
Absolutely loved Hakan's place! It's next to both M4 and M5 metro lines so getting around the city was super simple, although you'll probably just end up walking because it's in a brilliant location close to a bunch of different cafes, shops, groceries stores and banks.
I was traveling solo for 10 days in Paris, and the apartment was the perfect size and had everything I needed. I would defiantly stay there again in a heartbeat :)
The house is great! Good location, wonderful design, very cosy and feels like home.
looking forward to returning to Istanbul, as 2 days weren't enough.
Many thanks, Hakan!
I had a fabulous stay in Hakan's apartment. It's a short walk from the Gare du Nord and then a stroll into the Marais district and central paris. The apartment was clean, the kitchen and bathroom facilities were easy to use. I felt safe waking around the area. I would recommend this place for a single or a couple for a trip to Paris wanting cheap, straight forward accommodation. I would definitely stay again. My only feedback is that I could not find the stairwell light in the evening so needed my trusty phone light to light to way but it's only 1 flight of stairs which for Paris is a dream!
The location is good. The house is clean and tidy.
The only thing which bother me a bit is the passage lead to the house is uneven,but actually it was beautiful. If I don't have 2 big luggages, the stay there is prefect.
Great place, smallish but extremely cosy. The courtyard when you walk in is very beautiful too. On the other hand, it was very easy to communicate with Hakan... Although he wasn't in town when I arrived, he made sure the check-in went well and answered all my questions regarding the apartment and the area. Recommended!
We stayed at Hakan's apartment for 16 nights over Christmas and new year. It was a perfect base for the two of us,a great apartment, great value and in a really interesting and vibrant part of town. We loved the nearby markets and various restaurants on rue fauborg st denis. Hakan was extremely helpful with our special requests,and really quick to respond to any questions. We will definitely return to stay here.
Awesome, beautiful, special house !!
We liked it very much.
Hakan was mega friendly and helpful. A very nice host
Fantastic apartment! We were blown away by the love and care that has gone into restoring the place. The attention to detail has made the property truly remarkable. The area itself is an authentic experience and we had a great time being fully immersed with the locals in the area. Hakan gave us everything we needed and was very useful and helpful along the whole process with suggestions of where to go. We highly recommend this place, it may be a bit of a walk into the main old town but not a big deal at all when you consider the experience you have when you are right in the heart of real culture!
Hakan took us to the terrace and gave us a great overview of Istanbul. The house is beautiful and a great space for a week in Istanbul. It is a up and coming neighborhood with lots of friendly neighbors. It was a brief walk to the taxi area which was nice. We really enjoyed out stay at Hakan's home. He was available whenever we needed him.
Cool guest. Very accommodating and sympathetic.
I can say is that Hakan left the appartement very clean and was very easy going and friendly in our exchanges. I highly recomend Hakan to the airbnb community.
Everything worked out fine. Easy communiction.
