I am experienced in hosting people from all over the world.
Just come and enjoy your HOME in ISTANBUL.
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!
My girlfriend and I had a lovely stay here. The apartment is very nice and secluded offering much relaxation and privacy. It's very centrally located right next to Istiklal Street and the Tram.
The best part of this place is Mehmet. He is a wonderful and accommodating host. On the first night of our arrival he pointed us the right direction of the major attractions and offered suggestions on places to visit. He also helped us recover our lost airline luggage which was over the top nice.
I'd definitely stay here again.
Ali is great -- very friendly, conscientious and flexible. He has several flats in the area. The apartment we booked would work well for backpackers looking to share space and save money. However, it was in a basement. Traveling as a couple, we wanted a place with better ambiance. Ali allowed us to move to another flat after one night (and did not charge a cleaning fee). We were pleased with our stay in the second flat and appreciated Ali's willingness to accommodate us.

We were two couples travelling together so we rented two apartments -Sultan and Princess. The apartments are exactly as they appeared in the photos. It is very conveniently located with grocery shopping and a small supermarket within 5 minutes. The tramline just down the hill takes you to the main tourist area in just 3 stops. Up the hill is a really beautiful area of Istanbul, full of nightlife, restaurants and shops. We were very pleased with the location and the quiet apartment.
Mehmet is great. He's thoughtful, energetic, prompt and very nice. His apartment looks exactly like what is shown in the pictures. He does have a washer in the apartment so it's very convenient.
The apartment is located on a steep hill so anyone who is has difficulty walking should be keep the location in mind. However, the walk is worth it as there are many shops and restaurants close by.
Finally, while the apartment is great for a romantic vacation, the neighbors are conservative so the back terrace may be underutilized.
I stayed with a friend and had a great time. Mehmet is friendly and helpful, and the apartment is very comfortable. We loved coming home after a long day out and sitting on the balcony with a glass of wine or a cup of tea.
The apartment is in a good general location but I might not have felt completely safe coming back at night if I was by myself because the entrance is in a quiet, dark, back-street. On the other hand, the street is filled with children playing during the afternoons, and it's quite lovely to feel like you're in a local, lived-in neighbourhood.
We enjoyed staying in Mehmet's apartment. It was in a good location and had everything you needed for a comfortable stay. Mehmet was really friendly and welcoming. He organised taxis for us at the beginning and the end of our stay which was very helpful.Thanks Mehmet!
Nice apartment! Cosy and convenient, with all necessary things and equipment to make a vacation pleasant! Lovely balcony with a view on a small beautiful garden in the inner yard. Very good location - 10 min to the Istiklal up the street, 5 min walk to tram station and in 15 min walk you can reach the egyptian bazaar across the bridge.
Owner of the apartment is a very nice guy, good educated, knows several languages, friendly and willing to help in case of any problems or questions. He gave us some maps, organized pickup service, and even brought us for a night walk in Istanbul.
The place is definitely recommended!
