First of all, a warm thank you to our hosts, who have been completely delightfull.
We were warmly received by Bahar and her mom (at whose place we stayed), and were welcome with the paramount of Turkish hospitality. Our host made sure we had everything we needed and Bahar stayed in contact with us all the time to make sure we did not need anything. The room itself is very well located, close to the transports, and an overall good value.
Would recommend without hesitation and we will surely come back if we ever go back to Istanbul!
Thanks for everything and take care!
Bahar is so warm and thoughtful that I really feel at home when visiting Istanbul for 6 days!
Thank you Bahar!
Meet you soon!
Bahar is the perfect host! She warmly welcomed me in her lovely apartment. My room was super comfortable. The apartment is well-located, very near the tram station and restaurants. She always helped me in my plans and we also had a great time dining out. I had a good laugh wih her and we had so many interesting stories shared. I hope to meet her again. I highly recommend her place to anyone visiting Istanbul.
It was a great time at Bahar's appartment. The flat is very well located to the inner city and you have everything what you need in this area. Her flat is very clean and comfortable. Bahar is a great person and host. I would definitely recommend to stay there.
Bahar is a wonderful host, always willing to make you confortable. I had a really nice stay and if I go back to Istanbul, I would be really happy to see her again!
Bahar is the perfect hostess! She is so friendly, helpful and kind. She made my first visit to Istanbul not just comfortable and pleasant but also more interesting and more fun.
It was a great pleasure spending little but quality time with you during my stay. Thanks for all the information you have given me, shared and helped me with the language around Istanbul. I will for sure return for more to discover. Thanks much!
Bahar was quality. Really full of life, funny and very helpful with any questions you have about the city (or life in general!).
The room is exactly as advertised, small but if you're looking for a bed in pleasant apartment with quick access to all the main tourist areas then it's ideal. Also, the surrounding neighbourhood itself is very lively and local with plenty of places to eat. Plus you really can't beat that price. Recommended.
Bahar is a fantastic host and it was a real pleasure staying at her place, which is ideally located. She showed me some hidden treasures of Istanbul and taught me how to cook baba ghanoush: it couldn't have been better!
Bahar was a great and friendly host, who made it feel like home while staying in her place. Positive energy and great atmosphere. Her place was easy to find and very comfortable. I would recommend staying with her!
