Lovely flat, perfect location, great host!
We had a wonderful time in Istanbul.
I can definitely recommend Baris place to stay.
We loved staying at this apartment. The locations was PERFECT; Beyoglu is such a vibrant neighbourhood and we were so happy to be in the center of it. The bed was comfortable, the living room was a great hangout place. We used the roof terrace a lot. Baris was extremely helpful with all our questions. I'd absolutely stay there again!
Baris was a wonderful host and very responsive. He waited for me to arrive and helped me get checked in to the apartment. I loved the space- the patio on the back was beautiful!
Baris is an absolutly reliable and welcoming host.
The apartment is really nice with elegantly styled. It also has remarkle terrace. It is situated in the very heart of Beyoglu.
And the location is part of one major drawback. Beyoglu is full of bars and nightclubs, which are also near the apartment. This makes the apartment noisy. I recommend the apartment only when you plan to enjoy Beyoglu nightlife intensively (better be home late than early).
We had a great time staying at Baris's place. He was relaxed and helpful and made things very simple for us. Its a lovely apartment and although it is in a very central area we had no trouble sleeping, Definitely would recommend it
Slap bang in the centre of restaurants and bars you need not walk too far for entertainment! The apartment is functional and bright and the terrace, although overrun by cats, was a good place to enjoy a sun-setter. The stairs with their smell of cats were a little challenging but once in the apartment were forgotten, (plus Baris was kind enough to carry my bag up to his top floor pad, a gift indeed). Friday and Saturday night saw the neighbourhood heaving to the early hours, however, I was able to sleep despite concern that the sounds of frivolity from the streets would keep me up. All in all we had a good stay at Baris' apartment.
We stayed five days in Baris wonderful apartment, enjoying the bright and spacious rooms and the sunny terrace just outside the door.
The location is perfect to enjoy the nightlife of this nice pedestrian district, full of bars and restaurants and only one block away from the Istiklal street and the cable car tunnel which will allow you to easily go anywhere in town, especially to Sultanamet historical spots.
The area can be noisy at night (specially on Saturday), but once back home on the fifth floor, you just relax out of the crowd.
Baris was very nice, we met very easily and the first contact was very friendly. He showed us the place and gave us some tips on the neighborhood. He was very helpful and discreet as well.
We spent 6 nights in Baris' flat in March 2013 and it was great. It's conveniently located close to Tünel Square (email hidden) (read: the taxi can't drop you right at the door). Baris showed us where the neighborhood market is and pointed out an excellent Turkish restaurant nearby. The neighborhood can be noisy at night (particularly weekends) due to the clubs, but it's downright placid in the morning. The patio is great when the weather is good. The flat is as spacious and comfy as it looks in the pictures. The flat is 5 floors up and there's no elevator so pack light. We would definitely stay here again.
The reservation was canceled 2 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Baris's apartment is fabulous. The location is great from many perspectives. It's really close to great restaurants, clubs and shopping. The neighbourhood is interesting and vibrant. The apartment itself is spacious, bright and well-appointed. The terrace shown in the pictures is a lovely spot for breakfast or a drink in the afternoon. The only potential drawbacks are the fact that it's on the 5th floor (stairs only, no lift) and that it can be a bit noisy at night since it's on a street with several night clubs. Baris was a great host. He responded promptly to emails, he and a friend were waiting to meet us when we arrived from the airport and they helped with our luggage. I would definitely stay at this property again if I were visiting Istanbul.
