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.
Aliye´s appartment is very easy to reach from Taksim and in a very central location. The appartment was fully equipped, very clean and it was very easy to get in contact with Aliye to get the keys. We had everything we needed for our stay and had a wonderful time at her place!
I definately recommend it!
What a wonderful little flat. Very comfortable. And such a great location, quite close to Taksim square and some great cafes & bars in a very nice, lively part of town, just 10 min walk away. Aliye had one of her greeter meet us and was really helpful all the way. Very easy.
Me and my friends had an amazing and comfortable stay at Nomad's listing. The apartment was clean and everything was in order. It was super easy to communicate with her since the beginning. Listing is located in one of the best places in İstanbul, easy to find and reach to everywhere. Highly recommended...
We had a Great moment In this flat which has a wonderful location In the heart of Istanbul with plenty of great bars and restaurants ! It's also important To notice That this place is very quiet, well we highly recommand this appartment !
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.
