Great place to stay. Taner's mother made check-in/out very simple and convenient. The apartment is spacious and clean, exactly as described. Location was perfect - a 5-10 minute walk to famous sites. I came into Istanbul from Ataturk airport using the metro system (~1 hour to the Sultanahmet stop), and it was an easy walk to the apartment from there once you get familiar with the streets. Highly recommend this apartment - it was perfect!
We had a very good time in Istanbul - it is a fantastic city! The apartment is located very close to the top highlights in the old city center: Hagia Sofia and Blue Mosque and there are good restaurants near by. Thank you for your hospitality.
Very big apartment
Ce fut un séjour très agréable, avec une vue superbe sur la mer.
Accueil très chaleureux, la famille est toujours attentive à nos besoins.
Appartement situé à quelques minutes de la Mosquée bleue et de Sainte-Sophie, quartier très agréable.
A recommander !
Die Vorabinfos in der E-Mail waren sehr hilfreich und haben dem Taxifahrer geholfen, das Appartement zu finden. Der Raum selbst ist groß wie beschrieben, die Aussicht wunderschön trotz der recht lauten Schnellstraße vor dem Haus und die Gastgeber sind freundlich und hilfsbereit. Zum Geburtstag gab es einen Blumenstrauß für mich!
Die Treppe in den 3. Stock ist sehr schmal ohne Geländer, die Gastgeber halfen bereitwillig bei der Gepäckbeförderung. Das Duschbad ist minimalistisch, zwei Tage gab es warmes Wasser nur auf Zuruf. Die große Katzenfamilie im Haus ist auch im 3. Stock noch wahrzunehmen.
Entgegen der Beschreibung wird ein Frühstück nicht mehr angeboten, allerdings versorgte uns Taners Mutter mit Tee, Wasser und kleinen Snacks, so dass wir im Appartement frühstücken konnten.
Ein großer Vorteil ist die Nähe zu allen Sehenswürdigkeiten, Restaurants, Bazaren und sonstigen Highlights, die man fast alle zu Fuß erreichen kann. Alles in allem ein gelungener Aufenthalt !

We stayed at Sultanahmet Gardens for nearly one month. The location is wonderful,within close walking distance to all the main touristy sights and yet still in a little back street where locals go about their daily lives, we absolutely adored it.
The apartment is very spacious,light and comfortable.The bathroom is serviceable but desperately needs to be upgraded.
Taner's family were fantastic in offering many suggestions regarding sights around Istanbul and gave us so many historical insights into the area we were staying in. They addressed any issues we had immediately.
Overall, we had the most fabulous time.We have been to Istanbul many times before and stayed in hotels, I would highly recommend this apartment. It is basic but serviced all out needs. We felt very safe and comfortable. There are many little shops within walking distance to buy your daily food (bread,milk etc) and restaurants are a 5 minute walk.
Inizio dicendo che i proprietari dell'appartamento sono estremamente gentili e disponibili, la casa però è meno confortevole di quanto appare nelle foto.
La stanza da letto affaccia sul vano scala, che avvolte rimane acceso tutto la notte illuminando la stanza a giorno, la posizione non è delle migliori, ma soprattutto il bagno è del tutto inagibile.dIl rubinetto del lavandino non esce acqua calda, la doccia è al centro del bagno senza piatto ( quindi quando ti fai la doccia lavi bagni tutto il bagno) ed il wc emana cattivo odore. Insomma non era poi così piacevole rientrare a casa la sera.
We stayed for 3 nights in Taners lovely apartment. Clean. Firm bed. Warm (centrally heated). Very very well located. Easy to walk to the main sights. Good restaurants too very close (try Shadow for drink and meals) and roof top terrace at Seven Hills for the view. We were met by Taner's lovely very helpful mother who checked us in and out and gave us lots of information about the main sights, day trips etc. We recommend this apartment a lot. Thank you to Taner and his mother.
Taner and his brother were very attentive and really nice people. Taner even made a special effort to be up at 4am to ensure we made it to the airport okay. The room's location is great and vintage atmosphere were its strong points.
At the time we had difficulties with the wifi dropping out every day we were there. Whilst Taner did his best to solve it, it was frustrating when one spends time researching the next day in the room. The toilet and shower being in the same wet area was uncomfortable to be honest.
We would recommend staying here.
Excellent Experience. Entirely professional and communication was extremely smooth. Would recommend to anyone that requires a clean and professional guest. Thank you for staying with us, Feel free to contact us again in the future.
I've referred Taner's place to many friends who have stayed and came back with nothing but great things to say! There is a gorgeous view of the water from the window and the terrace is a great place to relax and eat breakfast. The family is wonderful and very hospitable. When visiting it's great to be near so many beautiful attractions-would recommend to anyone traveling to Istanbul!
Stayed here for three nights and had the best time! Definitely made my trip to Istanbul even better. The view alone was enough to make this place a worthwhile place to stay, and it was very close to many tourist attractions, which was very nice. Definitely recommend walking along the water during sunset for a beautiful view. Arrived to everything being clean and true to the pictures posted online. Fabulous hosts-definitely recommending to all my friends & family!
I've known the Kaya Brothers for almost 10 years now. They are both well educated and have great manners. I've also visited their place many times. It's a great location on the Historical Peninsula and I think the only one with such a big garden. I'm sure your stay there will be a great experience.
I'm Taner's brother. I'm a computer engineer from Istanbul. I'm also a city council member of Istanbul. During your stay I'll be responsible for your comfort. You'll be staying in the palace area and we promise your stay will be fit for kings.
