- struggle for life -
I just joined Airbnb a month ago and since I am from Istanbul I would be happy to show you the real Istanbul and Turkish culture.
Everything was as expected. Apartment has 4 bedrooms but was laid out in a way that lent itself to privacy. Selim was very nice and although his English was limited he was able to answer my questions and get me situated. Large bathroom with great shower. Location was good too, just a 5 minute walk from the main walking street of Istiklal.
We had such a great time at Selim's! The room was clean, the apartment well located and Selim and his roommates were very nice and helpful. We'd definitely stay there again!
Selim is a great host! His appartment is very nice and clean, our room was so comforable!! And it is very VERY well located. We did everything by walking. Selim and his roomates are really nice and welcoming persons. I strongly recommend this airbnb!
The location of Selim’s apartment is just great – 2 minutes away from Istiklal and very close to Galata tower with its beautiful neighbourhood (awesome shops and cafés). The place is clean, our room was nicely prepared when we arrived. For anyone super sensitive about cigarette smoke that might be a problem but definitely not in the rooms. Selim and his friends are super nice, it’s the perfect place to go if you’re looking to meet people quickly. Although I was with a friend, I would definitely say that Selim’s apartment is a great place to stay if you’re a girl travelling alone as well.
Was a great trip.room is very nice and host in perfect location!
The Location of the flat is perfect, room was clean and enought space for 3 people! Selim is really a nice host, who cooked for us turkish specialities. thank's Selim we enjoyed our stay in Istanbul !!!!
Decent place and great location. We stayed here and went to Taksim Square quite often. It's a couple minutes walk to the metro but it's convenient.
Room is perfect, clean and as pictured. Perfect for a couple who doesn't spend much time there. Thanks Selim!! We really enjoyed our stay!!
Selim really is the nicest guy in Istanbul :) as we read about him before we arrived here. The location of the room is perfect. As Istanbul is a intense city, coming and going in the appartement was also intense. Actually at the time we stayed there it was over crowded but Selim does his best... so for the price it is acceptable. Bruno
selim is a nice person, the room was very clean, comfortable and warm. perfect position of the house, near the airport bus station and shops and restaurants. The house was just a bit crowd but the people were very friendly.
We stayed one week at Selim's appartment. After one night, we felt completely at home. Selim is a wonderful guest, he was part of the wonderful souvenir I keep from this extraordinary city. Selim, we're back in February 2014. Get ready !!
