Mehmet was the perfect host for our trip in Istanbul. Everything was easy going with him. Our stay couldn't have been better.
We stayed in Mehmet's flat for 5 nights in early May and were met with a truly memorable experience. Upon arrival Mehmet patiently assisted our driver with directions to the neighborhood even though we were several hours late due to traffic and flight delays. He met us with a smile and took the careful time to point out the must see attractions in the city. The flat is located in the perfect part of the city, not only within walking distance to the Golden Horn but near the main dining and entertainment options in Galata. Overall I would recommend the rental to anyone as the flat was clean, quiet and comfortable.
Fantastic location and great flat. Balcony and peaceful garden view was lovely. Mehmet was a great host and full of good advice and very helpful. Was very good that mehmet provided a travel card and the public transport from the flat was extremely convenient, fast and frequent. Definitely worth buying the museum pass which is good value and means you can skip the queue at all the sights and monuments. Definitely recommend this place!
Mehmet`s appartement is small and cosy. The popular area of Galata is a good starting point to explore the many sights of Istanbul.
The appartement is clean and furnished in a nice turkish style. The location is central, safe and quiet.
My son and I had a pleasant stay. Mehmet is helpful a good host. He`s a good source for inquiries and organises transfers to the airport too.
I would book with him at anytime.
Thanks for the nice stay.
What a wonderful host and great apartment. Everything listed about this location is accurate. Two blocks to the metro and actually walking distance to the grand bazaar and spice bazaar and blue mosque and next door to galata tower. No way to fit it all in. The neighborhood for the apartment is great and includes lovely small restaurants a bakery and grocery stores. Mehmet was a fabulous host .
We are a family of 4, we stayed in Mehmet place for a few days, it was great the apartment is clean Full equipped, the second room is small two young adults can sleep on it, Mehmet is a great host we met him when we checked in, he gave us a map and a metro card and showed us some places to visit, over all i recommend Mehmet and his place
The apartment was clean and tidy. Area doesn’t look great at first sight but we never felt unsafe and it’s in a fantastic location for getting around. About 5 mins up a steep street to all the main shopping and food places, my wife has bad knees and struggled with the climb a bit. At the bottom end of the street (about 3 mins) is Tophane Tram stop on the T1 line which takes you south to all the main attractions. Mehmet was excellent and organised airport transfers for us, he gave us a map and pointed out all the places to see and how to get around. We also texted him a few times to ask questions and he was always helpful.
Mehmet is an extremely helpful person, it was a pleasure to deal with him.
The apart has a very good location (close to Istiklal Street and Galata Tower). It is very clean and has everything you need.
The apartment itself was meeting our expectations, it was clean and tidy up at our arrival and it does suit for 6/7 people (considering the price you pay). It is fully furnished for all your needs, even if it has a good kitchen we preferred to experience every day local dishes. It is centrally located, so in 10 min walks from the main shopping center, galata tower, and as well close to many other city attractions. The area around the house at first sight can look a bit scary, but it is really safe and people are very friendly.
Mehmet has been a great host, he arrange our taxi pick up service that worked out really well, he gave us valuable see-sighting tips and has been always quick responsive for any sort of problem or request we had. I would definitely recommend this place if you are visiting Istanbul.
What a wonderful apartment and an amazing host! Mehmit was extremely welcoming, accommodating and helpful during our stay; from helping us get familiarized w/the area, to helping w/transportation, etc.
The apartment was great. Very clean, well maintained, functional and comfortable. It was centrally located to all the action. Just a short walk up the hill is Istiklar St, where all restaurants, cafe's, bars and clubs are located; very vibrant and lively. And also close to the Tram and site seeing options.
I would definitely stay here again!
