We stayed in the apartment for 4 days and had a great time in Istanbul. The location is perfect - quiet street in a great neighborhood - close to a lot of nice bars, cafes and shops (just walking around there is lovely) and walking distance from Taksim and Istiklal street (for shopping, nightlife, food etc.). It is easy to get anywhere in Istanbul from the flat as it is well connected by tram or metro.
The flat is perfect for 2 people for a short stay (I would say up to a week) - it had everything we needed, but is fairly minimal and basic. It is smaller than it looks in the photos but pretty, clean and very bright. Seeing that it was very cold outside the heating worked well, not sure what it would be like in the summer when it is very hot.
The host met us at the apartment, was available for any questions we might have during our stay and gave us some good tips on food, sights and places to visit. The communication was easy and pleasant. Overall I would recommend it to a younger couple or 2 friends for an excellent shorter stay in beautiful Istanbul.
I would really like to thank Barış for everything regarding my staying in his apartment, starting first by his reactivity, responsitivity and flexibility.
The apartment is really even nicer than it was showed in the pics; shiny, well managed, nice decorated, super clean and well firnitured with all what you can need.
I arrived at almost midnight and Barış didn't have any problem tp wait for me to give me the keys, and since I landed in Istanbul he kept writing me to follow at which level I was.
It has be mentioned as well that the apartment is super perfect located in Cihangir, very close to everything and in a safe area.
I highly recommend staying in Barış apartment.
Great location. A modern neighborhood packed with small independent shops, cafes, bars and other places. I would stay with Baris again if I ever went back to Istanbul because he's a host that takes great care of his guests. Thank you.
Nice apartment, very very good location. Baris was very helpful, met us late in the evening and gave some highlights.
Also he sent us an instructions how to get to the apartment in advance which was very appreciated.
The only thing that could be better - it was a little bit chilly in the middle of feb in Istanbul in general and in our flat as well.
Heater was located it the bedroom and sometimes it was a little bit noisy.
But I believe that it was the only inconvenience, mainly caused by the not very typical weather.
The apartment is conveniently located within walking distance of taksim square.Pubs,restaurants and stores are also within a short walks distance.The apartment is clean and tidy and is perfect for short stays.Baris as a host was excellent and even provided us with a oyster card and some useful tips.his startup of alldaywifi is excellent and is highly recommended..
This two-bedroom flat in Cihangir proved to be the perfect home base for myself and my team during a recent business trip to Istanbul. The flat was very clean and modern, and very comfortable. It was also very well located and within walking distance to the metro. Next door was a local market where you can easily buy a jug of water for your stay (it is recommended not to drink from the tap). Down the steps is Boğazkesen Cd where you can find local bakeries in the morning. Walking uphill on Türkgücü Cd, you can easily make your way to Cihangir Square and Iskitlal Cd.
As for Baris, he is an incredibly accommodating and responsive host. During our stay, we ran completely out of toilet paper and paper towels. Baris was quick to replenish us, and even offered to arrange laundry pickup.
A couple small caveats to the space include the water pressure from the shower which was intermittent. Also, the wireless internet signal was at times weak and on the slower side on all three floors. This made streaming any video content difficult, so bring a book with you. There is no television so if you are not out and about, you will be home reading.
An absolute gem. Perfectly situated, comfortable, baris did everything possible to make our stay exactly as we wanted it, including getting up in the early hours to welcome us. There is nothing I would change, and if I return to istanbul, I won't hesitate to stay there again. Also, the bed is gloriously comfortable.
Perfect location, very comfortable and warm flat, spotlessy clean. Quiet street, we felt really safe.
Baris was full of useful tips, which contributed to the success of our stay. Strongly recommend!
Evin bulunduğu yer harika, gece İstiklâl de eğlenip eve yürüyerek rahat bir şekilde gidilebiliniyor. Evin iç mekan tasarımı mükemmel, bir bekâr evim olsa böyle olmasını isterim. Barış harika birisi. Kahvaltı için sokağın başındaki börekçi eve servis (website hidden) desem az kalır. Harika bir ev , harika yer , harika fiyat.
It was easy to communicate with Baris and he advised us nice restaurants and places to visit. He also provided a map and even a tramway to save us time! The flat is really cosy and comfy in a really nice area near Taksim, we would gladly come back here !
Great guests! The ladies left the flat clean and I think they really enjoyed Austin. Would host them again.
Coppia cordiale, gentile, precisa nella comunicazione, rispettosa della nostra privacy e particolarmente attenta alla nostra casa e alle nostre cose. Abbiamo accolto con piacere Baris Can e il suo compagno ed è stato molto gradevole trascorrere del tempo insieme. Assolutamente raccomandati come ospiti e naturalmente ci auguriamo di ospitarli ancora, magari in occasione di loro prossimo viaggio in Toscana.
Hey! We spent together only a little time but the feeling was so good.
This couple is polite, kind, clean, with a sweet soul! Perfect guests!
Thanks for all! Alessia
Very nice and friendly guest. Unfortunately we don't met. But anyway everything went on smoothly. Highly recommended.
Baris Can und seine Begleitung waren sehr nette, liebenswürdige Gäste. Ich würde mich sehr freuen sie wieder bei mir begrüßen zu dürfen.
Baris and his girlfriend were very kind guests, we had often an nice conversation with them and they were really interested in The Netherlands. We learned to make and drink Turkish coffee!
They were always in a good mood even when the Dutch weather was awful in wintertime.

it is said that in order to understand how to be a great guest, you firstly have to try the host part! since baris is already a great airbnb host, there was no question that he was going to be an even greater guest!!! guys, have a nice trip and we are waiting to see you back in our city...
