Some people try to avoid it, but I love when it rains. I like to go for a walk and travel as much as I can.

Banu and her husband were really helpful before and during our stay in Istanbul. We had a great time and really liked the flat and the area of Taksim.
I would recommend this flat: it's about 10mins walking from Taksim Sq, it's really confortable and clean.
I had a wonderful vacation in Istanbul. Banu and her husband were very friendly with us. I really thank them. I saw them just two times. They gave me the keys in the first day and got it back when we left. I said this because they don't interrupt the guests frequently and it was a big convenience for us.
The only problem was that the house didn't have a bell to ring. We were three people in the house and whenever one of us was outside, he or she had to call the others inside the house to get in.
All the other things were really good.
Thank you Banu and Borat.
My stay at Banu's was one of the travel trips that will always be remembered and spoken of.
Banu was extremely helpful and supportive despite her being outside the city. She had her friends help me etc. However there has been a water cut to the whole block and not only to this flat, which complicated the situation. But my friends were at the Hilton just crossing the street, which was more than fine. I would contact Banu next time before going to Istanbul!
The appartment is well located (10 min walking to Takism sq) and is just what we needed as it shows on the pictures: different spaces, clean, a kitchen to cook basic stuff. The toilet is quite basic and the air conditioning didn´t work, which may be secondary things, but useful to know if a travellers is going in summer!
Öncelikle evsahibimiz ve eşine teşekkür ediyorum. Son derece yardımcı oldular ve hic bir sıkıntı yaşamadık. Ev biraz eski de olsa gayet temiz ve kullanışlıydı. Taksim Meydanı'na 5 dakika yürüme mesafesinde olması da büyük avantaj oldu. Tavsiye edebileceğim bir ev.
First of all i would like to thank to our host and her husband. They very extremely helpful and we have not had any trouble. The house is a little old but higly clean and good to use. the best advantage was the 5 minutes walking distance to Taksim Square. I can definitely reccomend this house.
The apartment was in a perfect location for us: close to Taksim and Istanbul´s "high life", but also close to Macka Park for some relaxation.
It was just the right size and offered everything we needed during our stay.
Banu and Murat were really kind and helpful.
Their animal-friendliness is a big plus, too! : )
Banu was very quick to reply to all messages and very helpful at all times. Her husband, Murat, came to meet me at the agreed time despite VERY heavy traffic. Again he was very helpful with a tour around the property and information on the shuttle service to the airport and using public transport. The apartment is exactly how it appears on the pictures. Very comfortable and there were snacks and milk in the fridge! The flat is located just around the corner from a busy street that leads into Taksim square. I never felt unsafe at any time despite travelling alone. There is a convenience store directly across from the main entrance and the owner was very friendly and gave me 2 icecreams for the price of 1!.
thank you for staying in your nice appartment. It was ideal for me and my daughter, because there are seperated bedrooms. We could reach every place we wanted to see very easy and quickly. Your husband was very kind and helpfull.
We had a great time.
Thank you, Banu
Small apartment in very good location, just a few minutes away from Taksim Square and İstiklal Avenue. From there it is possible to go by public transport to the old town, Asian side... During our stay some protests took place in Taksim, however, the location of the apartment is safe and only some care is needed to avoid the conflict areas.
The apartment is located in front of Istanbul Conference Center, hence it is an ideal option if you are attending an event there (as it was my case.) The main issue I found with the apartment is that to enter one of the rooms you have to cross the other one (however, since this can be seen from the pictures, it is not really an issue.) Otherwise perfect, comfortable beds, small kitchen, coffee, tee...
Banu and her husband were very helpful upon arrival. They helped us speaking with the taxi driver, they clarified all our doubts and gave some useful hints. Thank you Banu!
