I was born in Istanbul and grew up here. I am 35 years old and married.
The apartment was beautiful and in the perfect location near all of the great neighborhoods. Everything is walking distance from the place. The apartment was clean and perfectly fit 6 of us. Would definitely stay here again.
I stayed at Aliye's apartment for 4 days with 5 friends and it was perfect. The flat is very charming, clean, it has everything you need (towels, dishes, internet etc...), nice living room for sharing good times with your friends and very comfortable bedrooms. The flat is very well located, short walk from Istiklal street where all the bars and clubs are, and close to the tunnel to Galata bridge. Aliye was very flexible and adapting to our arrival/departure times, always answering very quickly.
I greatly recommand this apartment!
Appartement charmant, bien situé (pas loin de la place taksim), propre et joliment agencé, et surtout, très calme, ce qui est particulièrement agréable après des journées de balades dans Istanbul !
Et en plus, Aliye a été très flexible avec nos horaires d'arrivée (après minuit !) et de départ (un dimanche après-midi).
Un grand merci, et une recommandation pour tous !
I would certainly recommend this apartment for the following reasons. The apartment is very comfortable, with modern appliances and is very clean. It is very well located - a short walk to the many shops and restaurants in and around Istiklal and Beyoglu. And if there are any minor issues, Aliye from Nomad is super-responsive. The outside of the building looks pretty ordinary, but do not be put off by this. Once you are inside the apartment, you will feel like you are coming home. The apartment is up 3 flights of stairs. As long as you are okay with this, I would definitely recommend this apartment.
One of the best places to stay in Istanbul. My family along with friends stayed at Nomad's place for 8 days, Nomad is great and very kind host, she booked taxi service from and to airport for us, and gave us transport card, which made travelling in Istanbul easier. Room location gives you the opportunity to visit all the historic places with no need to spend much time in the road, and is very comfortable for spending evenings in the app-s.
Excellent flat, very new and well-furnished!
Location is awesome, very close to Istiklal street, the place where all the action takes place.
We were one more person (6 instead of 5) on a short-term notice, which was absolutely no problem for the host.
Handling, communication was very easy as well.
All in all, everything was good, nothing to complain! Thanks a lot for the nice stay.
A fantastic apartment in a lovely neighbourhood of Istanbul. The hosts are helpful, reliable and make you feel at home. I look forward to my next visit to Istanbul and will definitely stay in the same place again!
The flat was impeccably clean, tastefully decorated and equipped with everything we needed (yes, even towels, toothpaste and guidebooks). It's in a very convenient location near the tram station, grocery shops and the shopping district Istiklal Caddesi. There's also a taxi stand just around the corner for those who want to catch a cab to the airport. It was our first time in Turkey and we were travelling in an all-girls group so we were worried about safety in the beginning, but the area was very safe and the locals were all very kind and helpful. During our stay we had some problems with the TV and water boiler, but Aliye and her husband were very kind and responsive and came over to help us sort things out the very next day. Otherwise, everything about the flat was great and we have no other complaints!
Aliye is an amazing host. The entire booking process went very smoothly. She answered every little question that we had and also helped us in planning the trip. She provided specific pointers on things-to-do, places-to-visit and restaurants-to-try-out.
She was very accommodating when we had delays on arrival. During the entire stay, Aliye was just a phone-call / email away. I strongly recommend her as my yet another favorite host in Istanbul!
The place is spacious and just as described. It is centrally located and has a feel of local Istanbul-living. There is a small grocery store (that does home-deliveries) right across from the house, and restaurants / small shops at a walking distance. The balcony overlooks a very refreshing backyard with orange trees. The kitchen is well equipped to even cook small meals. The house has everything you would need on a vacation.
My family and I spent 5 days at the place and enjoyed every bit of it. It was the perfect house to spend quality family time.
We just returned from a 4 nights stay in Istanbul. Our experience with Aliye's apartment was absolutely positive. Even though we did not meet her, she made sure that we fealt confident and secure with our stay: she made sure the taxi driver would drive us through the right route by explaining him by phone, at our arrival at the apartment somebody was waiting for us at the door explaining/showing us around in the apartment, her husband called us later to make sure everything is to our likings at our arrival and the complimentary refreshments and fruits that were left for us in the fridge.
Shortly said: Nothing but positive remarks to be made on this flat. It is tastefully designed, well distributed with regards to the rooms inside as well as in the area with all hotspots on walking distance. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone!
from the begginning of the contact, nomad was just very nice. i could easly got the cheerfulness from her voice. she was very understanding and easy going. she and her husband is the one for every hosts' wish.
thank you nomad...........
I recommend her to all airbnb guests because i am sure that she will treat them friendly and carefully like she treated her flat with her gentle touch.
