We had a wonderful stay at Nomad's Romantic Getaway in Istanbul! The apartment is very nice in a quiet area of Besiktas (although up a steep hill!). It's been newly renovated and is very clean, bright and spacious. Aliye was very quick in responding to any questions we had. It's about a half hour from the old city by bus, but a 15 minute walk to the tram which will take you to the heart of the city. A short 15 minute walk in the other direction takes you to Ortakoy, a very pretty village on the Bosphorus with shops, cafes, street artists and a beautiful mosque. If you're looking for a relaxing, quiet apartment to return to after exploring Istanbul by day, I'd highly recommend it!
Nomad was a lovely host who responded quickly to every question. The apartment is great, and the bedroom is very quiet and calm. The street itself has a myriad of little shops and kebab and börek places, and the tram is close and runs all the time straight to the center and Karaköy. Museum of Innocence and Istanbul Modern are five minutes away. I hope we can stay here soon again.
Nomad was fantastic in getting us directions and settled.
Dear Maribeth thank you for staying with us. you are welcome back anytime. super kind and friendly family. strongly suggested!
We really liked and felt comfortable at Aliye's apartment during our stay. The location is great albeit on a hilly neighborhood, which was not a problem for us, but may be difficult if you have older guests in your party. Aliye was very responsive and quick to address an issue we had with the hot water. Overall, we would recommend her place and would stay again.
Aliye was very welcoming and easy to communicate with. The place looks just like shown in the photos.
We had some issues with the Wifi the first day - but Aliye was very helpfull to fix it and called someone to help (friday night!).
The neighborhood it self is not something special. But it is very close on foot to all the modern parts of Istanbul, so it is not an issue to live here in order to reach the heart of Istanbul.
I travelled with my boyfriend to Istanbul in early January and was really happy I chose Nomad's apartment. I actually communicated with Aliye before and during my stay. Although we didn't meet, she was very helpful and communicative. My taxi driver rang Aliye and she directed him to the apartment, where Aliye's assistant met and welcomed me.
The apartment was as shown in the photos with lots of space, a good kitchen and bathroom, and comfortable living room and bedrooms. The apartment was clean and the heating was excellent even on the coldest winter days. The tasteful furnishings were a really nice touch.
Besiktas was a nice, quiet residential neighbourhood. We shopped at the local supermarket down the hill and found everything we needed to make nice meals when we didn't feel like going out. Buses and taxis were easy to reach for getting to tourist sights and Ortakoy and the Bosporus were a leisurely stroll away.
I can highly recommend this apartment for couples and families.
our hostess was always available on the phone. Her response and help were both fast and accurate. The appartement is great, ideal for two couples and big enough for three couples. All the photo you see are exactly how this place is. Don't be dissapointed by the exterior look of the building, most of the buildings of the city look very old...
the appartement is 10 minutes walk from Istiklal, a very central street with food, drink shopping, so you can go there with out a taxi . In 20 minutes pleasant walk you can find the area of Galata tower- very modern - bohem area. in the appartement you will find a very usefull guide book about food- everything this book suggested was great! But, just around the corner, below the bridge,there is a turkish restaurant- the food is ok, in case you want to grab something and go directly to bed :)
Overall , we highly recommend this place and we feel lucky we booked!
Very nice flat with great location!
Great beds, cozy livingroom and good kitchen.
The flat was clean and spacious.
Short walk to the city center.
Host has been really kind all the way and helped with taxies, city maps and other things. Host was also very flexible with time for check in and out. In generel super easy to communicate with.
Aliye kept in touch by the time we touched down at IST and made sure we arrived her house safely. I was travelling first time with my elderly parents, and a younger sister so I was nervous for my parents but Aliye's hospitality made each and everyone of us feel at home.
The house is at third floor of the apartment. Would be a problem to others as there's no elevator. I love it that it's very near to Istiklal street but very quiet at the same time. We always take the Balik Pazari road at the end of our day touring Istanbul to reach the apartment. There's also a mini Carrefour 3minutes away from this place.
The house itself is clean, spacious and very well decorated. Aliye also is very thoughtful to leave many guide books for us to use, the one we enjoyed the most had to be the Istanbul Eats. We stayed for a good 6 days here and by the time we're about to leave we already miss this place and Aliye's hospitality.
We haven't had a chance to know Emre. We came across just twice and had a quick word with him. But he was a quite, nice and considerate host.
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.
