We had a great stay at Marcel's place. Loved the room and bathroom, loved the neighbourhood, loved the host!
Marcel was lovely and the apartment fantastic! We were very happy with our stay. Apartment was huge, very clean and beautifully appointed, easy to travel to and from. Thanks Marcel! 10/10.
It was a great experience of staying at Marcel's apartment in the center of Istanbul. Marcel and his apartment is a perfect example of why we live and love in this "sharing economy" and the concept of "Airbnb".
The apartment is gorgeous, decorated with authentic Turkish style. Vintage furniture, paintings, plants and many more details: you feel like living in an episode of past history. Great experience!
Marcel is a really cool guy: helpful, easy-going and knowledgeable about the city and the life around Istanbul. He gave us really awesome advice to visit some hidden local restaurants and interesting sites. We truly enjoyed his hospitality.
Much appreciated and high recommended to people who wants to taste the spices of Istanbul. This is an idea apartment to make your stay more comfortable and special!
Une excellente expérience!
Très bel appartement, joliment agencé.
La chambre avec salle de bain est très agréable et très propre.
Marcel m'a accueilli de manière très chaleureuse, il s'est toujours montré très disponible pour toutes questions, recommandations ou aides. Il a toujours fait en sorte que le séjour se passe pour le mieux.
Le petit +, mais qui dans mon séjour a été de taille: l'accès au toit terrasse de l'immeuble, qui offre une vue imprenable et ou j'ai aimé passer les fins de journées à écouter la rumeur de la ville.
Je recommande vivement cet appartement.
Vielen dank Marcel!

Response from Marcel:
klaro ;) sevgiler
Marcel is a very good host, friendly and helpful. The flat is very close to Istiklal street (3 mn) and Taksim square (10-15 mn).
This place is a real find! Unfortunately Marcel was on holiday when we visited but his friend Luisa was the perfect host and made us feel really welcome. The apartment is unique, full of character and in a fantastic location. Its very close to Taksim Square and Istiklal Caddesi (5 mins walk) and within easy walking distance of Galata Bridge and all the historical sites on the other side of the Bosphorous. If you arrive late at night there are a couple of well stocked local shops for drinks and snacks and a lovely local kebab shop which seems to be open all hours - their Adana kebabs are delicious! The flat is spotlessley clean and beautifully decorated with original painted walls and ceilings and lots of antique furniture. The ensuite bathroom is hotel quality. Entering the building feels like walking into bohemian Istanbul with its huge chandelier and original tiled hallway. All in all, a fantastic place to stay which I'd highly recommend. Thanks!
Marcel was very friendly and picked us up on Taksim after 10 minutes we called him and brought us to our flat where the owner of the flat welcomed us.
Both very nice and helpfull as fast as they could answer.
We had the flat for us the last days but we had everytime the option to call Marcel or the owner of the flat or to text them (Whatsapp and more). Wifi was working all the time.
We had many very nice cafés and also super markets in our neighborhood and Taksim was very close - also İstiklal Caddesi (the great shopping avenue).
Metro (Taksim & Kabataş) were very close too.
Really nice time! :)
We had a great time staying at Marcel's beautiful apartment. It is in such a good location and easy walking distance from Taksim, Tunel, Galata, etc. the apartment is beautifully decorated and comfortable. Wake up and go to sleep to the calls to prayer daily, it is one if the best experiences!! Marcel is a great host and has good advice on what to do & see in the city.
Marcel was a great host. The place has a great Turkish character and I loved it. Very unique place, and same time very clean.
Marcel is a great guy living in the same neighborhood as me. He knows Istanbul very well and I'm sure he's a perfect host !
Marcel was our gracious host in connection to The Triangle Project Part 10 in Istanbul! His place is close to the nightlife and center of city street life for the international traveler. Marcel is also connected to the local art, film and music scene and open to sharing his network and friends. Enjoy Istanbul! :-)
