I am from Istanbul. I graduated from Bogazici University and currently work at MCD Digital.
Staying at Ayşe's was great. The apartment really felt like home and Ayşe was very keen to help out however she could.
We really enjoyed staying in Ayse's appartment! She is a really lovely and caring person and she provided us with everything we needed. Her place is quite spacious and comfortable. It is located quite centrally since it is only 20 min from Taxim so getting to Beyoglu / Galata and also to the airport is not difficult. We also enjoyed that there were nice grocery shops just around the corner. Thank you, Ayse!
I enjoyed it very much to stay at Ayses lovely apartment! Very soon I felt like at home there. It was like a calm oasis in a very huge and crowded city, although very beautiful Istanbul!
Thank you for all your help and advise!
Ayşe's flat was really very comfortable and nice.İts near bus stops of the line 70 to Eminönü and to Yenikapı.5 min walking distance to Carrefour(big supermarket).The street is very calm and nice.1 min walking distance to Kurtuluş Caddesi where you can find all possible shops,restaurants and cafes.Ayşe is nice and intelligent host.She provided us with 2 sets of keys and İstanbul card(for transportation) and gave some ideas. 10-15 min walking distance to metro station Osmanbey and to Harbiye street where you can find really everything icl. Theatres and Museums.25-30 min walking to Cevahir-very big shopping mall.This area and flat is ideal for tourists who want to feel like locals in İstanbul.
The appartment is great and got everything needed. It is not located close to the city center and is at about 20min walk from Taksim square. However, buses can bring you to the city center in 20min.
I really enjoyed staying at Ayse lovely neat apartment, I was staying by myself all my 8 days I could wash my clothes everyday using her machine. It is much better than staying in Hotel. I also found nice Turkish restaurant near 70KY Bus Terminal which is just 300 m from her home. Thank you Ayse for hosting me and all the help you have provided.
I really enjoyed staying at Ayse lovely neat apartment, I was staying by myself all my 8 days but she was very helpful and quick in responding whenever I need her by text messages .she always give detailed answers so perfect ,….speaks and write perfect English .

Although we didn't see Ayse due to her work project, she was very nice and considerating ( leaving us some fruit, texting us importent information,...)
The room is nice and clean , 20 min walk to Taksim. 5-10 min from the nearest metro station.
Thanx for letting us stay!
We really enjoyed staying at Ayşe's apartment for our week in Istanbul.
Ayşe gave us excellent details on how to get to her apartment, met us when we arrived and gave us a detailed map of her area and local bus information, which was an excellent help.
Her place was really nice and we felt very comfortable and at home in her apartment.
There are nearby shops - delis, supermarkets, kebap stores - we never went hungry!
Ayşe was a great host - flexible with our arrival, which we were grateful of, and left us some nice fruit in the fridge, and also showed us around the neighbourhood.
Although we didn't get to spend much time with Ayşe, she was so easy to communicate with via SMS if we needed anything.
Ayşe was an excellent host and we would recommend and stay again.
Ayşes place is a very cute appartement in the middle of Kurtulus. We enjoed her lovely place and her kindness and how everything was easy-going. She was all the time avalaible for us and we felt at home. I am sure I will return to Istanbul one again beacause it's a beautiful city and I will stay at Ayşe any time it's possible again. And I can only recommend this warmly nice and perfect located appartement.
Ayse stayed 6 nights in my apartment. Ayse is a very sympathetic person. Very pleasant and very communicative. Right from the start I had good contact with her. She kept me informed about how she was doing by small sms- messages which I appreciated very much. She fully observed the house rules and after her departure she left the house neat and tidy. I certainly would like to have her back as guest and can recommend her to every one.
I've known Ayşe for over 5 years. As a person Ayşe is stylish, fun, honest, organised and very tidy, she has many friends due to her warm and charismatic nature and I would definitely recommend her to all airbnb members. She'll have some great advice of where to go and what to see when in Istanbul thats for sure!
I've known Ayşe for many years now. I even shared the same flat with her for 5 years. She is a very sweet, helpful girl. I love her dearly. Her apartment is clean and comfortable. It is in a great location-- in a quiet part of the neighborhood but steps away from the action and subway/bus lines. Very very recommended ;) :)
