Wishing you love, joy and peace the whole year round.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Years!
İlknur & Bülent
Ilknur was so helpful, she was reachable by email 24/7 which was amazing and always had answers to our questions. The apt was in an ideal location for nightlife and entertainment and only a tram ride away from the old town and all the historical attractions. All in all a very good experience!
Small, but nice, well equipped and cozy studio. Good location.
Istanbul is great! And it was a pleasure to stay in Ilknurs Room. We appreciated the conversation with you a lot, Ilknur! The room is rather small, but the space is absolutely sufficient. It was very clean and Taksim is really close! We would definitely book it a second time.
BTW: We forgot two beers in the fridge! We wish the next couple / person a nice evening ;-)
The location is really great, 8 minutes up the hill from the apartment and you are in the middle of Istiklal street, the apartment is really very cosy and nice, its small but as we were whole day out in the city, we were coming back just for sleep it was absolutely sufficient, it was very clean and tidy; Though we did not meet Ilknur (she had her own wedding she still managed to answer the phone and give all necessary information) she was still very helpful, as she gave detailed description of how to get to apartment, how much to pay taxi, ideas for nice restaurants and sightseeings; she was available any time via email or phone and gave us great hospitality; definitely recommend this place for 2 tourists who would like to explore the city.
P.S. when I was reading reviews someone mentioned, it was not that safe district – no way this is true, we were coming late night and had no tiny feeling of insecurity;
Ilknur was a wonderful host! She gave us some great tips for our stay in Istanbul and provided everything we needed.She always only took a few minutes to reply on airbnb and made everything possible to make our trip as good as possible. The appartment was really nice and clean. Even though the neighbourhood seemed a little shadey at first, we felt safe and comfortable in the appartment.
This place is perfect for a couple or a single person. The apartment has everything you need, very cozy!
İlknur very attentive hostess, she gave us lots of useful information about restaurants, hammam and even good exchange close to home.
highly recommend this place!
We did not meet Iknur, we talk to her by phone.
Iknur is really professional, she is very well organised.
She wrotte us a list with the best tips to do in Istambul (restaurant, supermarket, hammam, neighborhood to visit...).
Her apartment is very well fitted (small kitchen with everything we need in, towels), very clean and very well located (close to the pedestrian street) and safety around.
But a little bit noisy (because of the cars on the avenue).
I recommand Iknur and her place!
Хозяин прекрасный! Тут же отвечал на все письма, рекомендовал места в Стамбуле, очень заботливый, при том, что мы с ним не разу не встретились. Квартира Очень маленькая, чистая и уютная, все что нужно для жизни на несколько дней (электрическая плитка, фен, посуда и пр.) Хороший ремонт. Окна выходят на соседний дом, что в целом хорошо ) Чистый, приятный подъезд.
Самое главное, что касается района. Это темная сторона Стамбула. Несмотря на то, что в 5 минутах ходьбы находиться большая пешеходная улица Истикляль (как московский Арбат), в этом районе много разрушенных, заброшенных домов, на в переулках много маргинальных личностей, которые жгут костры на тротуарах, дети в грязных одеждах, мусор на улицах и пр. Вечером выходить страшно, особенно одному. В тот момент, когда входишь в подъезд становится уютно и безопасно.
The owner is lovely! Immediately respond to all emails and SMS, recommend a places in Istanbul, very caring.
The apartment is very small, clean and comfortable, everything you need to live for a few days (electric stove, dryer, dishes, etc.) Good interior. Windows are located to the next-door house, but it's good =) Clean, pleasant entrance.
Most importantly, with regard to the area. This is the dark side of Istanbul. Despite the fact that a 5 minute walk from the large pedestrian Istiklal Street. in this area, many destroyed, abandoned houses in the lanes there are many marginalized individuals who bonfires on the sidewalks, children in dirty clothes, trash on the streets etc. Scared to go out in the evening, especially one. When you get into the entrance becomes cozy and safe .
This is a great apartment, fully consistent with the description and photographs. Comfortable bed and a warm blanket conquered me! The house is easy located, I went to walk everywhere I needed, but it was very close to public transport links. The apartment owners provide useful recommendations and life hacks and answer all questions. I highly recommend this house!
We had a great time at Ilknur apartment. Thanks Ilknur !

The windows are very close the another building, so don't expect a beautiful view or much light during the day.
Friendly Turkish couple, very polite and good hearted. We enjoyed hosting them. They were in touch with us before coming here. Thank you for chosing us:)
Bülent and his friend İlknur were friendly, hassle-free guests who left the apartment clean & tidy. It was a pleasure to host them.
