Hicran was so helpful and warm as our host in Istanbul. She gave us a great long list of recommendations for restaurants, sites, and tips which helped a ton. The apartment was lovely and quiet in a residential neighborhood away from hoards of people with 4 or 5 small grocers in a 3 minute walk. Taksim is so close and the tram stop to access all of Istanbul's main sites couldn't be more accessible. The Bosphorus view from her apartment is especially beautiful in the mornings and evenings!
Hicran's apartment was perfect and Hicran very kind to us. Upstairs, the sunny living room and fully equipped kitchen has a beautiful view on the Bosphore! Downstairs, the bathrooms is quite large and very convenient, and the bedroom is also nice.
The apartment was extremely clean!
Also Hicran gave us some recommendations about Istanbul. The neighborhood is great and you can find great restaurants around. if i were to live in Istanbul, I would pick this neighborhood, we loved it. Thank you Hicran!

Die Wohnung ist absolut perfekt gelegen, sehr zentral! 5 min zu Fuß zum Taximsquare, 5 min zur Fähre in Kabatas am Bisporus und 5 min nach Besiktas! Die Wohnung ist sehr gemütlich und hat alles was man braucht, sogar ein wenig Blick auf den Bosporus! Hicran ist jederzeit äußerst hilfsbereit bei Fragen rund um die Wohnung und Istanbul an sich! Es hat Spaß gemacht!
Hicran was easy to get in touch with. I booked last minute (the day before) and everything was ready for us the next day. We ran a little late getting to her apartment but she was there waiting.
Her apartment is cute and cozy. The living room is bright and sunny- a nice place to read or send emails in the morning. It's in a quiet neighborhood a brief walk from Taksim square and a short walk to the metro stop on the waterfront that will take you to Galata Bridge or the Old City if you like.
Hicran gave us guide books and maps to use as well as a comprehensive email with tips on restaurants and places to visit. A nice bathtub and laundry in the apartment were a big treat for us long term travelers.
Her apartment has a security system that is easy to use and made us feel comfortable leaving valuables while we went out to explore.
Hicran was very helpful and always available via email, whatsapp and text messages. She gave us many handy tips and pointers regarding navigation, commuting, house-keeping rules, good places to go to, where to eat...
The apartment is strategically located just off the buzz of Taksim; at the same time few steps away from Kabatas station. As mentioned before, the hills/stairs are to be taken into consideration, but then again, that is one of the facets of the great city of Istanbul. We had everything we needed to feel at home, towels, soap, music CDs, and a small kitchen filled with basic stuff that were convenient through our stay. Hicran's place was filled with personal touches and souvenirs, made us eager to have met her; maybe next time.
Just one thing to take into account, the bedroom is downstairs, so there's no Bosphorous view nor ample sunlight (as opposed to the living room). For those who don't really care, this is a very minor concern.
Many thanks Hicran, hope we meet one day :)
We stayed at Hicran's apartment for a week. It is in a perfect location, a 5 minute walk to the tram and 10 minutes to Taksim square area where there are lots of good restaurants. The apartment was clean and had everything we needed. Hicran was easy to get in touch with and encouraged us to get in touch with her if needed.
Area: Safe,great location. easy to get to the middle of taksim and where all the action is(bars, restaurants,shopping) and to kabatas if u want to head across the river to sultanahmet. Taksim is very hilly in general so be prepared for a lot of climbing. Host: hico was prompt with her responses and kind enough to leave us instructions and an email full of local tips. we had a great time in Istanbul because of this and didn't fall into too many tourist traps. Flat:Clean,washer/dryer were a definite plus point.good DVD stash. small kitchen with basics. we ate all our meals out so didnt do any cooking. enjoy istanbul!
Hicran was so wonderful to work with. She was very communicative before the trip, emailing us right away with confirmation, details, and helpful information about the neighborhood. She checked in with us regularly and made sure we had the contact information for friends of hers in case we needed more help. The apartment was in a fabulous location - very close to Taksim square, close to many forms of the public transportation, and in a really lovely area. The apartment was welcoming, clean, organized, and we felt right at home. I was very impressed with both the apartment and Hicran's communications. I knew we were safe, taken care of, and felt very comfortable while we stayed in Istanbul for a week. I highly recommend this place.
Nous avons été super bien accueillis par notre hôtesse Hicran.
Le quartier est sympa et calme. L'appartement est agréable le seul petit bémol: il n'y avait pas de climatisation avec une température de 35 degrés à l'extérieur. Grâce à tous les bons conseils de Hicran pour les visites notre séjour à Istambul a été un ravissement. Nous vous le recommandons .
Hicran is a very clean and sempatic guest:) nice to meet you and I hope to see you again:)
Hicran ha sido una excelente huésped, atenta y amable, ella y sus amigos han sido magníficos , espero que hayan disfrutado el apartamento y su terraza con las bonitas vistas a la alhambra. Todo lo han dejado perfecto.
Hicran came with two friends to spend their holidays in Barcelona. She is a very kind person and dealing with her has been very easy from the beginning. She left the apartment completely clean and tidy. She's the perfect tenant. I can only recommend her to anyone wanting to host someone on a future.
I stayed at Hicran's flat for 1 week between December 1-8. The location of the flat is so convenient as it is both one of the nicest neighbourhoods, being quiet and safe in Istanbul and also very very close to the Taksim square. It was also so close to transportation lines so the location worked perfectly for me. In addition the flat is very nice and comfortable, I loved the way it is decorated. The flat also has a nice view of the Bosphorus which you can enjoy while either having your meal at the table and also working. The flat is well furnished and met all my needs. I felt so much at home. Hicran was also helpful and answered all my questions right away. I highly recommend the place to everyone! Thanks for everything!
Hico is a warm and a trustworthy one ;) Her lovely place is very cozy and safe with an awesome view of the bosphorus... being at her place is a gift... tidy at all times... She is very sensitive about keeping it all clean and well organized.
