Beril ist eine großartige Gastgeberin, die meine Reise durch ihr Engagement, ihre Gastfreundschaft und zahlreiche Tipps und Informationen zu etwas Speziellem gemacht hat.
Aus meiner Sicht liegt die Wohnung perfekt, um ein paar entspannte Tage in Istanbul zu verbringen. Sie ist liebevoll eingerichtet und sauber.
Für mich war's perfekt und ich komme bestimmt wieder!
I felt completely comfortable and at home as soon as I walked into Beril's flat. I was in Istanbul to study, which was easy as I had the peace and space to do so. She was so friendly and accomodating from the moment we started communictaing through the booking to the moment I left...thoughtfully booking me a taxi to take me to the airport. The flat is really beautiful and immaculate. I couldn't have wished for a better host and I feel like I have made a new friend in Istanbul. Thanks again Beril! : )
I had a wonderful 4 week stay at Berils apartment. The apartment is a real gem. Just as in pictures, everything was nicely decorated to the smallest detail. The roofterracce was great, needless to say I spent a lot of time there. The room it self was small but it had a lot of storage space, bed was comfortable and wide enough to sleep even two for a short stay ( my boyfriend came to visit me for 2 days.) The area was great, right at the heart of cihangir with tons of cafés and bars. Beril was really great, I landed in middle of the night in Istanbul and she was awake to let me in. She gave me tips and helped me with everything I needed. I also enjoyed our talks :) I would definitely stay at Berils place again.
We stayed at Beril's charming apartment for almost 6 weeks while doing an extended working trip to Istanbul. The location and setup were perfect -- we felt like we were in the thick of the Beyoglu neighborhood without being surrounded by tourists all the time! The apartment itself is charming and we quickly felt at home — from morning coffee on the balcony overlooking Tarlabasi to cooking dinners with market-fresh produce in the kitchen, it was a great home base for our Istanbul explorations. The apartment is on a very busy street, so bring earplugs if you're noise-sensitive, but being on the top floor definitely helps (we very quickly got used to it). The 6 flights of stairs are long, but help combat the inevitable overeating that Istanbul lends itself to :) Tons of great restaurants, cafes, and bars are right there, and it's an easy walk to Taksim, Galata, and beyond.
Had a lovely stay in Beril's apartment. It was really clean and homely, and in the perfect location for exploring the city. It is up a lot of stairs, but that just made us feel less guilty about over-indulging in delicious Turkish food! Beril gave us some great advice for our trip, provided us with travelcards and lots of guide books and maps I would highly recommend a stay in this very cute flat!
I usually do not leave public comments, but as we had such a nice experience in Istanbul, and at the flat, I make an exception: all was perfect, thank you Beril.
For those who are interested in the host: she is a academic researcher, and as many other researchers, has difficulties finding scholarships, etc. That's why she has to hire her flat. So Beril is not in it for the money alone. A warm and gentle person, and your money will be well used. In return, a cosy, well furnished flat, the ideal base to visit Istanbul.
Beril is an excellent host and gave us very good advice for our visit to Istanbul.
The apartment is very clean and comfortable . Any issues we had during our visit were dealt with very promptly by Beril.
The long climb up the stairs is well worth it.
Very comfortable and fully equipped apartment. A bit loudly at saturday night from the street (taxi drivers get a little crazy on crossroad) and be ready to walk up at six floor (and get nice view at balcony).
So, we were happy to stay this flat. Beril is very compassionate and communicative. She described our way from airport, answered all our questions, gave us advices about restaurants, transport and city areas. It was pleasant acquaintance and adventure!
We had a wonderfull stay at Beril's flat. Beril and Olgu are very nice and helpfull. The flat is very well located in Istanbul. We did almost all our visits by foot and the neighborhood is cool, with a lot of bars and restaurants. The flat is just perfect, clean, big, well equiped, with lovely decoration and a lot of informations about Istanbul. The terrace is perfect for drinks and breakfast.
I really recommand this place.
We had a fantastic 6-night stay at Beril's apartment in Istanbul. Beril is a delightful host - very well prepared and full of useful information.
The apartment is beautifully decorated, indeed very cute and cosy, and incredibly well equipped. We felt so relaxed and comfortable here. After staying in some spartan apartments, it was so nice to stay in a place that had so many cool little touches.
After travelling around Turkey, it was great to be able to unwind, cook a meal (the kitchen is really well equipped), wash our clothes and have a nice hot shower. Despite the freezing weather outside, the apartment was always nice and warm.
The locations is perfect for Istanbul. Really close to the action in Beyolgu - its a short walk to Iskitlal St, and close to buses and trams. Arriving from the airport on the Havatas bus, its easy to walk down to the apartment from Taksim square.
The only drawbacks are that the street below is busy (however it's not too bad as you are 5 floors up above it all). If you are a light sleeper, just bring some earplugs and you will be fine. It is a 5th floor walkup - so be prepared to do a lot of climbing :) But you need the exercise to burn off the kebabs anyway!
If we are back in Istanbul, we would not hesitate in staying here again. Thanks Beril!
Beril is very nice and educated person. I have enjoyed very much meeting her and her friends. I wouldn't hesitate to host them again.
Beril and friends were such a fun group!! I loved them the first time we talk. They were easy To reach and To comunicate. The apartment was just perfect left!
Nice, uncomplicated young people. Can it be better than that?
