I am 27 years old female, working as a project manager in a very boutique creative agency in İstanbul.
Location is great and it was a very interesting street close to the action. We would recommend staying here but there are some things that one should be aware of. The street is very steep so make sure you are fit, the street can be noisy at night. Other than that, it is great value and it was easy staying there.
It was a good experience to stay in Ozen's apartment. We were there for five days and found it to be very conveniently situated just a few minutes walk to Istikal Strret and Galata tower. The neighbourhood is very friendly except for a strange smell when you enter the building. The grocery and daily needs store just below the apartment is a huge help. The apartment is just a two minute walk from the metro station that connects you to the rest of he city. Ozen is extremely helpful and so is her friend with any information that you may need at ANY time of the day or night. Would definitely recommend it.
We stayed at Ozen's place in two couples and one child.
The place is nice and cosy, well located - close to main attractions / shopping street and tram.
It is a bit noisy street, especially in the wknd, so our kid had some issues with sleeping. But adults were fine :)
It has WiFi, TV and all needed to have a good stay.
We had a great time in Istanbul! The flat is located in the coolest part of the city, where you can find cozy cafe, bars galleries also local bakeries. On the same time the flat is situated not far away from Istanbul touristic symbols.
It is definitely the best way to explore the city!!!
Stayed for 6 nights with my friend over new years 2012-2013 and had a terrific time.
The apartment is in a perfect location near Galata Tower with easy access to shopping, sights, nightlife, food and public transportation.
Özen is a great host, very friendly and accomodating. The room is bright, clean and comfortable for two persons.
Since the apartment is in an old building there is quite a lot of noise from the street, this didn't bother us, but if you are sensitive to sounds it's good to know.
Apart from that it's the perfect place for the perfect Istanbul holiday.
Ozen was very kind and helpful with us!!!! his house is very nice and spacious, we were so good and we strongly recommend!!!!
Hi ! I have just spend 5 very good days at Ozen's flat with 3 friends of mine and a little baby. The flat was really confortable even for a baby, fully equipated and really well situated in Istanbul (2 minutes far from Tophane tram station and 5 minutes from Galata tower and istacal cad. by walking). Very nice decoration too !
Ozen is really helpfull and nice !
I warmly recommend you to rent her flat !
We spent some super nice days in Istanbul. The appartement of Ozen is located a nice aera. Very closed to Galata Tower, Restaurants and around 15 min. to Taskim place by walk. The appartement is very cosy ! Ozen is a super friendly and uncomplicated host.
the flat is very comfortable and clean. Özen have everything you need and she is very friendly and helpful for every question and everything you will need.
the flat is near the istiklal street and so in the heart of Beyoglu. you can reach the tram and metro easily.
it is a save area and you can walk home alone in every hour.
I stayed there for 4weeks and enjoyed my stay!!
her boyfriend stays there sometimes too, but he is also friendly, so if you don´t mind, stay there and have a wonderful trip to the city of Istanbul!!
Ozen is a great hostess, very friendly and available. The apartment is clean, fully equiped and very close to Tophane tram station. Highly recommended!
