I am a Turkish native living in Istanbul and I am running a small B&B.

Firat's b&b is such an oasis ... Our room was tastefully furnished, clean and bright with a lovely garden setting for breakfast, served with fresh local breads and plentiful. It was great sitting amongst lemon trees in calm serenity! The added bonus is its just a short walk into centre of Alacati. But what really makes the b&b special is Firat himself, such a kind and friendly guy whose English is impeccable - the perfect host - who made our stay really memorable. Can wholeheartedly recommend to anyone a happy stay at No:Ombir!
We have been in Firats flat for visiting Istanbul. I have to say it was a very good stay in Firats Apartment, it's clean, has a nice terrace and it's only 5 min by walk to the taksim square.
Firat is a very trustworthy, helpful and nice person.
If I should come back, I would rent the apartment again, thanks for everything!
Thank you it was my pleasure to host guests like you and your friends
I have to say that generally, our stay was ok - we were welcomed by a guy who had been sent by the host to give us the keys and WiFi password basically. In terms of the flat quality, the photos are better than the reality, but if you are not going to spend many hours in the flat, its disadvantages can be disregarded. The location of the flat is also ok - about 15-20 minutes walk to Galata Tower through Istiklal.
Stayed for one night during a long layover in Istanbul.
We were really glad that we didn't have to stayed longer there...
Overpriced for the facility : the location is very central and convenient BUT the flat isn't comfy, all the furnitures are old and damaged. The bathroom is the same : the shower was clogged already and as a result the bathroom got flooded.
Firat was a nice host and very accommodating with the checkout time. But I will not book this place again or recommend it.
We had a great stay. Myself, husband and 6 month old daughter all fit fine. The shower was very big, water always hot (which in the winter for Turkey is sometimes hard to find) and the water pressure was great! It's within close walking distance to whatever you need (metro, restaurants & Istiklal Street). Firat was very nice & let us stay a little extra time when our daughter was napping. Overall it was great and we would stay again!!
Perfect for what we needed. The space is compact, but had everything we needed. PRO: close to Taksim Square, easy check-in process, Firat was very helpful and communicative. CON: Central location so the street noise can be a bit loud at night, bring earplugs. The wifi wasn't working properly when we stayed there, but perhaps it was a one-off. Didn't want to bother Firat in the middle of the night for wifi issues since we were only staying there one night. I'm sure he would have been happy to fix the issue if we brought it up.
Great central apartment, perfect for those who are out sightseeing all day and need a handy base. Owner was very responsive and helpful, would recommend staying here.
Unfortunately our experience in this flat was not so positive, due to a lot of cockroacks not only on the floor, also in the bed! One morning we found 14 (!) dead or nearly dead cockroachs on the floor in the ktichen, living room and bed room, everywhere... It could be a problem of Istanbul in general, but this is really disgusting. Firat tried to help and every morning we found less animals on the floor. The terrace was the highlight of the flat. Unfortunatley 2 from 4 chairs where broken and it should be cleaned more often. Summa summarum: we will not come back to this place.
Flawless stay! Firat was genuinely helpful and super easy to communicate with before and during stay. Room was clean, simple, great location in Taksim square. Would highly recommend staying here for an effortless stay in Istanbul!
Nice flat, lots of space and good light. A good base near Taksim square, lots of amenities, and walkable. We enjoyed our stay!
Firat is a nice person and a businessman into B&B service, he was at my home for 3 nights and everything was perfect, I would like to host him again and if I will go to Istanbul I will contact him.
