We had a lovely stay at Umut's apartment. The apartment itself is simple and small but clean and has everything you need for a short stay. It also has a beautiful view of Istanbul! However it is five flights of stairs up and no lift. Umut was very welcoming and gave us some great recommendations for the area. Checking in and out was also very easy. Thank you Umut!
very charming pension in a calm part of cirali, runned by the adorable aynur and her as-adorable entourage . having walking around quiet a bit in the village, this is probably the best option if you stay in cirali. also, it's cheap, not least considering all extra services we got when we needed!
you will immediately be included in the sima peace pshyosphere and it will probably make you stay there for longer then your initial plans… not a least because of the amazing, organic food - perfect for vegetarians and vegans: and we even learned how to make kabak (zucchini) köfte from aynurs original recipe. it's a really peaceful atmosphere: when you're not on the close-by-lying beach with crystal-clear water or walking on the lycian way, you can chat with the parrot, cuddle with the cats, listen to aynurs amazing stories or just relax in the hammock. when we left the place after four nights, it felt like we where leaving old friends!
Umut was very helpful in finding the apartment, and provided us with useful information about great places to visit around town! The apartment is small but the views are amazing and the location is perfect. We did great with four people staying for a week, and I'd recommend it for anyone looking for a home base for exploring Istanbul!
We really enjoyed our stay! We were greated with a warm welcome by Aynur and treated like family. She provided info about the area and even gave us a torch to take to the flames. It was a bit outside Cirali center, but not too far and really quiet and pleasant. It's very close to the beach and within about 30 minutes walk to the entrance of the Chimera flames. We enjoyed dinner and breakfast with Aynur which was really delicious and a great deal. We really recommend this place!
I stayed here with my family and it was perfect. The apartment was clean and was just what we were looking for with beautiful views and a basic but functional kitchen. Umut was very helpful and had prepared lots of information about Istanbul for us when we arrived. He also took the time to show us some of his favourite restaurants and local spots and we enjoyed his recommendations. We spent 12 days in Istanbul and had time to explore many neighbourhoods and we did not regret our decision to base ourselves in the Galata area - it was vibrant and out of the tourist crush!
My friend and I had an excellent stay. Umut was welcoming and helpful when we arrived. The apartment was as described - the views are simply breathtaking and worth the climb to the 5th floor.
The neighborhood is fantastic - lively and safe, probably the best location in Istanbul.
We felt like home! Aynur and her Family welcomed us in their Holiday place and we felt the turkish hospitality instantly. Food: extra nice, breakfast with home marinated olives and home cooked Food in the evening made this a real authentic stay! Thank you very much Aynur! Hoscakal!
Sehr schön gelegenes kleines Appartement. Ideal um die Stadt zu besichtigen. Umut ist sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit! Alles hat problemlos funktioniert! gerne wieder!
Несмотря на наше опоздание, Умут нас ждал и встретил.Он очень подробно рассказал нам обо всех достопримечательностях и дал хорошие рекомендации.Квартира скромная,но чистая и очень хорошо расположена - центр, но вечером и ночью очень тихо и спокойно.Есть Wi-Fi. Из минусов - отсутствие шторки в душе.Общее впечатление от квартиры -отличное, рекомендуем всем! Умут,спасибо за прекрасный отдых!
The flat is very well located: very central (easy to go to the old Istanbul as well as to the modern part of the city) and with a lot of commodities around (restaurants, bar, ...). Umut was nice and gave us good tips and recommendations. The flat is simple but everything is available.
