I am the chess champion of Turkey in year 2000 and overtook the flat from the previous owner very recently. You are welcome to add me on social networking sites. Half of my friends are foreigners living in Istanbul. I am a Taksim addict :-) and would be gladly your tour guide to the less known, niche spots of Taksim. I think an experienced local can significantly speed up your adaptation to Istanbul social and night life :-)
I don't smoke at all, I rarely drink, I like Turkish food, and I pay my tax. I hope you'll keep my flat clean.
My flat has 5 rooms to rent , 2 of which are singles, 2 of which are doubles , and one room that could be used both as a single and as a double. There are 2 bathrooms, only one of them contains a shower. A large hall connects all rooms together. The kitchen is also shared. The flat is located on the 3rd floor of a historical building where many families reside. The stairs are full of children during the day who are playing games. The ceilings are 3.80 high, and room nr.3 and the terrace have view of the Topkapı Palace, the famous mosques, and the Bosphorus.
I work as an e-commerce consultant, and you can hire me to optimize the advertisement of your flat&rooms at flat rental sites such as this one.
