I am running my own production company and mostly working in the culture and art business, especially at the classical music concerts and contemporary art exhibitions.
The reservation was canceled 45 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
It was an absolutely gorgeous stay in Istanbul and in Gözde's flat! She made us a very warmly welcome! She showed us everything also in the neighborhood and explained, how to find the adress! The flat is very cosy and has a fantastic view on the bosporus from the balcony!! We had all we needed and felt at home! I really hope to come back some time! Thanks a lot dear Gözde!
We had a great stay at Gözde's place. The apartment has a wonderful view and is conveniently located. Gözde was very hepful and welcoming
We had a great time staying at Gözde's apartment. She kindly welcomed us and we had a nice chat.
As you can see on the photos, the view is just superb (the photos are not close ups, they are what you actually see!!)
The location is great, 5 mn from the main pedestrian street with plenty of places to eat and drink; the metro, tram and funicular are close-by but the apartment is in a quiet street, off the touristy part of Istanbul and we loved staying staying in a "real" Istanbul street (by the way, the owner of the corner shop is very nice and friendly, don't hesitate to shop there)
I'll finish with one warning: the apartment is in a very steep street and up several flights of stairs, so it might be a problem if you have difficulties moving or very heavy luggage).
The apartment was well positioned, within walking distance to the old town and Gozde was friendly and helpful. Unfortunately there must have been a problem with the communal drains during our stay as the smell permeated through the apartment requiring heavy use of scented candles. Also back sufferers beware as the bed was less than comfortable. The kitchen had no ventilation inhibiting us using it for anything other than a salad, and there was no barbecue which would have improved things for us.
My husband and I stayed for one week at Gözde's apartment and it was perfect! The apartment has everything you would need and it would be hard to find a better view; it really is fab! The apartment is very cosy, clean and near to loads of bars and restaurants in a nice area. A great location, situated between Taksim square and Galata bridge (Golden Horn) which is about a 20 minute walk to either.
Gözde's is extremely nice and helpful. She was waiting for us at the apartment when we arrived even though we were a few hours late due to traffic. She gave us lots of tips and told us we could contact her anytime during our stay and ask for information about Istanbul if we needed to, which we did :). She also left us milk and coffee which was a nice touch.
Istanbul is really magical and I highly recommend it. If we go back we would definitely want to stay at Gözde's again.
Beautiful apartment and view, and Gozde is very nice! She even helped us find a clinic and pharmacy for a health problem we had. I would highly recommend this place, it is very central to Istiklal and nice neighborhoods in Beyoglu, and is about a 10-15 min walk to the tram from which you can access Sultanahmet, both bazaars and anything else you need to get to on the other side of the water. Highly recommend that you stay here!
I actually live in Istanbul and was looking for a place for my father and sister to stay during their visit. After spending hours on AirBNB looking for the right balance between cost, comfort, and location, I'm convinced that this is the best value on AirBNB for Istanbul. Wonderful view, very tastefully decorated, shower and bathroom work great, only a five minute walk to Istiklal and Galata.
For those early nights in after a long day exploring the city, Gozde has a wonderful movie collection to enjoy as well.
We can highly recommend staying at Gözde's apartment. It was clean, cosy and looks exactly like on photos. It is small but an ideal place for a couple to explore the city, location is perfect, you can easily get anywhere by foot. Istiklal street in 5 minutes, Beyoglu is a nice neighborhood with its great restaurants, bars, shops etc. Gözde is a perfect host, very attentive! She gave us a friendly reception. And view is breathtaking! It definitely deserves climbing the stairs. :)
We had a really nice stay at Gozde's appartment: it is near to everything, clean and comes with fast internet :)
Gozde has travelled the world , speaks English very well and was very helpful in telling us the places to go to.
I can recommend this place,
Very nice guest, respectful and great communication. Hope to host you again soon!
thanks for being our guest in the ART house. As a host by yourself, you know that everything has to be comfortable for your stay as well... We enjoy your stay and the nice chat we had... Hope you had a good time in Brussel and Paris. It would be nice if you stay here again. If we ever come over to Istanbul, we really like to stay in your Penthouse with a great view over the city... All the best, Nat and Robert
Oh yes, i love that girl... She's a close friend of mine and also my airbnb consultant. Clever, funny, reliable and trustworthy... That's what i always tell her: I wish I would coincide a host like her in one of my travels. I'm sure that you will enjoy her place and her guidance...
Gozde is a very close friend of mine who's a brilliant, sincere person with a great sense of humor. We have also worked together for years besides friendship and I'm sure that she'll be a very good host if you decide to stay at her place.
I also want to mention that she has a cozy place with a beautiful view.
Gozde, how to tell about her, she is one of the most clever, funny and humorus person that you can ever met. You spend hours even days with her, but it is like seconds... You can talk about any issue, she has an idea on many issues on the world. I know her since almost 12 years now and all the moments that i was with her was full of happines and smile, thank you for being my friend gozde :)
Gözde is an old friend of mine. She is a lovely and funny person. I trust her because I have lots of experience with. She works always well-organised and very clear.. Also enjoyable person when work together..
Her home is very comfortable and well decorated. Also nice landscape welcoming you to Boshphorus!
