We were greeted by Alex and Cem upon arrival and checking in was no problem. Cem helped us with the bags. The apartment was conveniently located and sufficiently equipped with a kitchenette and a bedroom with a sofa bed. We got around easily because it's very near the public transport amenities. Also, there's plenty of eating places around. It's on the 4th floor and the spiral staircase is a wee bit narrow and tight. Definitely not recommended for people with mobility issues.
Great location in Central Istanbul. Very easy to get to all the main attractions from here. Cem was knowledgable and a great help.
The location of this place was fantastic and a great bargain. It's super close to Taksim Square and the famous Istiklal street, and it was very easy to get to and from Taksim Square by airport shuttle and metro.
I think it is quite a safe area. There are a lot of people waiting outside the building because it is right near a dolmus location, but there are also lots of police around.
The flat itself is decently clean and came with the amenities. Lots of closet space, lots of little tables and chairs. It was very roomy for just myself, I had plenty of space to spread out :)
The bathroom is rather small, but totally fine since there were bars where you could hang towels and clothes. Hot water was a little tricky, there was just enough for a very quick shower.
I was on one of the lower level flats so fortunately I did not have a huge flight of stairs to climb. However the bedding and towels did smell like cigarettes and airing them out a bit did not help too much.
I didn't actually meet Tatyana but she arranged for me to meet with her friend to direct me to the flat. She was super nice and I wish I had the chance to actually hang out with her, but due to jetlag and my mosquito bite allergy, things didn't quite work out.
Η αλήθεια είναι ότι δε συναντήσαμε ποτέ την Tatyana, αλλά ένα φίλο της. Ο οικοδεσπότης ήταν πολύ φιλικός και μας είχε δώσει από την αρχή πολύ σαφείς και χρήσιμες οδηγίες για την άφιξή μας. Μας υποδέχτηκε την πρώτη μέρα στην πλατεία Taksim, μας οδήγησε στο διαμέρισμα, και μας καλωσόρισε αργότερα με ένα ποτό σε κάποιο ωραίο μπαρ. Εκεί είχαμε την ευκαιρία να μάθουμε κάποια πράγματα για τον προορισμό μας, τι να κάνουμε και τι όχι.
Το διαμέρισμα ήταν πολύ βολικό και άνετο για 3 άτομα, σε πολύ κεντρικό σημείο και το προτείνω ανεπιφύλακτα για όποιον θέλει να επισκευτεί την Κωνσταντινούπολη. Ήταν αρκετά καθαρό και είχε ζεστό νερό ανά πάσα στιγμή. Το μόνο μας πρόβλημα ήταν τα κουνούπια (!) και η έλλειψη χαρτιού τουαλέτας (για το οποίο βέβαια δεν ενημερώσαμε τον οικοδεσπότη, οπότε το θεωρούμε δικό μας λάθος).
Γενικά, μείναμε πολύ ευχαριστημένες από τη διαμονή μας και το ταξίδι μας γενικότερα! Ευχαριστούμε!
Большое спасибо за тепло и уют! Ребята встретили нас очень доброжелательно! Квартира расположена очень удобно, под рукой все необходимое. Все было очень хорошо! Джем, ПЕРСОНАЛЬНОЕ СПАСИБО!!! от Верочки
СПАСИБО ТАТЬЯНЕ ЗА ПРЕДОСТАВЛЕННУЮ КВАРТИРУ. Хорошее сочетание цены и качества, довольно удачное расположение. Претензий нет никаких.

Tatyana's apartment is a great choice for staying in this amazing city - easy to get to from the airport, for exploring the city on foot and for using public transportation - which is why my girlfriend and I chose it for our vacation. It is located in safe environment and has everything you need for a comfortable stay, while Cem, the host, makes you feel very welcome and is there for you to answer any questions. Perhaps a bit noisy as it is right in the city center, but you will not really notice it, as you will be very tired from exploring the city once you have returned to the apartment :-). As other people have said - if you are an older person - ask for an apartment on one of the lower floors.
All in all - I would (and hopefully will) happily stay there again!
Greetings from Banja Luka!
Great location, excellent hosts and very helpful when my father was unwell. This basic apartment is highly recommended.
Thanks for staying with us - always welcome again!:)
Квартира очень удобно расположена рядом с площадью Таксим в самом начале улицы Истикляль, где много кафе, баров, дискотек, всегда шумно и многолюдно. В квартире есть все необходимое, остался доволен своим выбором)
Tatyana's flat is nice and well located. We didn't meet her but her friend hosted us. He gave us great advices about nice spots in the neighborhood.
Tatyana was a pleasure to have at the apartment!
Tatyana was very polite and a good guest to have.
We would definitely rent to her again.
Tatyana was a nice person, clean and great respect for the home.
Good clients. Everything fine.
Easy to comunicate, nice to meet her...
Good guest, highly recommending..
She had a turkish number it was always easy to reach her. Apartment was left ok. Young and experienced travelers that's why there were no problem for them and for me. Tatyana is always welcome .
Tatyana and her friend were nice and respectful guests and the communication with them was perfect. I would recommend them to any host.
Tatyana, a very good guest. clean and respectful of the rules. We are very happy to welcome him. We thank him.
It was me pleasure to host Tatyana and her two collegues in Astana. She is very nice person and very polite.
We know eachother when we were students :) and she was one of my great guests. lucky person who will meet, hang out, get friend or be guest at her place. many great funny memories I got :)
When I once visited Ukraine for making a documentary Tatyana was a great tourguide/translator/co-journalist ;) Later she came to Utrecht/Amsterdam when travelling Europe. She is a reliable and fun host for sure.
Tatyana has very nice, clean and comfortable apartment in Istanbul, in a very good location. Apartment is equipped with all necessary home appliances, furniture and Technics you will not ask for anything more. In Tatyana's apartment you will feel yourself like at your own home!
This is really good value for the money! Don't hesitate to rent her apartment and don't spend 3x more money at a hotel.. Tatyana can show you also and guide you in Istanbul, if she has a time of course, in a favorable price for you. And that is important Tatyana is very agreeable, pretty, cheerful and friendly host you can dream to have such a fantastic host in Instanbul!
I know Tatyana from Istanbul where we both live for a longer time. She is a wonderful person always open for new friends which you can see by her various social connections. The flats in Istanbul are completely new and fresh :) A few of my friends already stayed there and had a great experience with both flats and tips & recommendations about Istanbul. I would highly recommend to contact Tatyana not only for the nice central accommodation but also for her vast knowledge about Istanbul.
Tatyana is my wonderful and funny flatmate. I can't imagine to live with anyone else than her. She is nice, kind, polite and very clean.
