Can was very hospitable and accommodating. The original reservation had some housekeeping odors and he gave us another apt immediately. He also gives a nice overview on where to go in Istanbul.
The apartment was very nice and clean. Can was accommodating and helpful. The apartment is located in a good location with easy access to tram and main street with many bars and restaurants.
My boyfriend and I had a wonderful stay in Can's apartment. The apartment looks just like it does in the photos, perfect size for 2 people with plenty of space for me to practice yoga in the mornings. Really liked the cosy upper area where the bed is.
The only problem was the smell of the drains from the bathroom. It was pretty awful! Although I bought some incense sticks which masked it.
The apartment was just a couple of minutes walk from all the big sites - very handy when walking around.
I never met Can but he was very accommodating - helped me get to the apartment having lost my phone before arriving, got one of his colleague to collect me from the nearby hotel on arrival, and he sent someone around to help me turn the heating on. Also left some snacks in the fridge for us and shower products.
Great flat for a short Turkey trip!
This should be one of the best Airbnb experiences I ever had. What a lovely apartment. Perfect for a couple that wants an authentic experience, have there own space, and stay on a pleasant location. The apartment has everything you might need during your stay, even a washing machine.
many thank for this information....
i ll check it.
Can is a very kind and helpful host. His office is in the next building and you can always go and ask him for advise and information. The apt has everything you need for comfortable stay. Also the wifi worked well. The location is excellent. Only five minutes from the Istiklal Caddesi and from the Tünel. The neighborhood is quiet and safe. Highly recommended!
Усе було чудово. Квартира вживу виглядає навіть краще ніж на фото. Дуже близько до Таксіму і в комфортній для прогулянок відстані від усіх цікавих пам"яток архітектури.
Наш літак запізнився і прилетів досить пізно, але біля квартири нас все рівно зустрів помічник Кана. Сам Кан дуже приємний, дав нам карту міста і порадив найцікавіші маршрути і місця для фото (він до речі, також захоплюється фотографією і навіть пропонував нам позичити додаткові штативи :))
Був один мінус - через різке нетипове похолодання у нас замерзла вода і нам довелось перетерпіти день без душу. Але до господаря претензій у нас немає, він зробив усе можливе, щоб ми почувались комфортно. Дякую за гостинність!
Thank you Can! Host looked even better than on photos on airbnb. It is really close to Taksim and Galata. It was very comfortable to visit the most popular places of Istanbul, because they are not far from this host.
We were glad to meet you Can. Hope that one day you will also come to our Lviv and you will take really cool shots on your camera in our town :) Thank you!
A clean, lovely flat in a good location with good amenities, such as a washing machine/drier (though we couldn't figure out how the drier worked), satellite TV, two bathrooms etc.
The flat is near the historic Pera Palace Hotel (Orient Express fans will know about that), and so within easy walking distance of İstiklal Avenue, Taksim Square and Galata Tower. One can walk to the Old City: The Sultan Ahmet complex is about 3,5km away.
Can was a fantastic host. Upon arrival he gave us an orientation of Istanbul, her gave a travelcard for us to use (in the event, we walked everywhere); even the fridge was stocked with free refreshments.
Conveniently, his office is next door, so one can store luggage there after check-out to go sightseeing before a late flight. Since nobody moved in after us, Can let us stay until we had to leave at 21:00 at no charge. That service is a very big plus.
Should I have occasion to stay in Istanbul again, I have a home.
I spent wonderful 4 days in this cosy and well designed apartment. Everything was perfect, i even find some delicious for customers). The apartment is situated in really nice place, not far from the Hotel,where Ahata Chisti were writing her "The murder in the Oriental Express" and not far from the Galata tower and Street for tourists with a lot amount of dinners and souvenirs shops.
Сердечная благодарность хозяину апартаментов Can Dolunay за теплый прием и оказанное радушие в течении 5-ти дней незабываемых, в самом сердце Стамбула в историческом районе Beyoglu. Координаты места расположения: (phone number hidden).
Очень хорошая, уютная и чистая квартира, приятно оформленные в морской тематике комнаты, просторный холл с мягкими диванами и креслами, столом и стульями, телевизор, Wi-Fi; в кухонной зоне: эл./плитка, холодильник, стиральная машина, кондиционер; все необходимое для нашей кампании в 6 человек, чтобы встретить Новый Год и жить знакомясь с городом
Были приятно окунуться в среду узеньких улочек, старинных домиков, расположенных на крутых склонах бухты Золотой Рог; при этом в шаговой доступности от известных достопримечательностей: башни Галата, Галатского моста, улицы Истикляль .
Так же очень удобное расположение апартаментов в 5-ти минутах ходьбы от станции метро Sishane (выход Kasimpasa) зеленая ветка М2, также недалеко находятся: исторический трамвай на ул. Истикляль, самый старый в мире подземный фуникулер Tunel,пристань Karakoy.
Рядом с апартаментами находятся масса магазинчиков, рестораны, банки и обменники. Также на соседней улочке расположен полицейский участок.
Мы с большим удовольствием рекомендуем всем эту квартиру и сами надеемся вернуться еще.
The moment we came to our home (Galata Pera 2) , which was really easily located and described by can, he welcomed us in his office and his helper helped us with our bags. He described the city and where we can shop and also even gave us a small gift. The house was even better than the photos on the internet, and also cleaner. It was clean and cozy and as good as described on the internet. The only couple of downsides are
1. The water coming from the sink in the kitchen sometimes had a bad smell to it.
2. We couldn't have hot water coming from the sink or shower and also the two heaters didnt work 2 times in a total, in two days which was a bit of a problem considering it was snowy weather ! But I understand that there were extreme weather conditions and there was electricity cuts so Can had his best to provide us as good as he can.
I was very happy to welcome Can and his family in Rome.
We met them at the apartment on time and had a very good communication through email and sms during their stay.
I hope to see them again, maybe in Istanbul, why not? :)
To all those who are planning a trip to Istanbul and are currently looking at the plentiful accommodation options, allow me to assert with confidence that your search is over. I arrived in Istanbul in mid 2010 with no knowledge of Turksih, no contacts, and no idea where I was going to live. After countless viewings of shady apartments with shady landlords, fate brought me to Can and his brother, Cem. I lived at Galatapera #3 for a year and it was easily one of the best years of my young life. Can, his brother, and everyone at the Dolunay office showered me with hospitality and genuine kindness that I will never forget. Since then, I have stayed at many Airbnb residencies around the world and while they have all been nice, none have lived up to the impossibly high standard set by Can. I'm sure that your stay will be everything you hope for and then some. Bon voyage and enjoy everything this unforgettable city has to offer!
Can, maşallah ve seni çok özledim!
