The apartment was great, with an amazing view of Istanbul, great location in one of the best part of the city. Hatice was a very helpful host. Highly recommended.
There is an abundance of reviews about Hatice's properties and I'm happy to add my voice to the choir of positive feedback. We stayed on the second floor of the building and so had few stairs but not the kinds of views you can get from higher up (we saw the inside of the top floor flat and the view was phenomenal). Still, the flat was impeccably clean, very comfortable, and quite spacious for two people. In addition, as mentioned, Hatice checks in to make sure everything is OK, and responds to messages quickly even though she is a busy woman.
The location of the building is just a short walk to the main action of Beyoglu and has the advantage of being in a quiet and basically non-touristic neighborhood, complete with communal cats (and one very friendly dog). Special shout-out to the cleaning lady (I'm afraid we didn't catch her name). Though she doesn't speak any English and neither of us speak any Turkish, we had many warm exchanges with her- she made us tea when we arrived, greeted us when we passed her on the street, and helped us out when we stupidly locked ourselves out of the building (Hatice too was great in this situation).
I have absolutely no reservations in recommending this airbnb and Hatice as a host.
I recommend a stay at Hatice's apartment without reservation. Hatice is a warm and welcoming host who is very responsive and professional. A real pleasure to meet her. The apartment is an ideal setup for an Istanbul visit - newly renovated, squeaky clean, a stone throw from all major attractions and public transport, yet somehow in a super quiet, peaceful neighborhood. And yes, the views are breathtaking - a real alternative to the busier rooftop bars that abound. Hatice has several apartments in the same building - my recommendation would be that depending on your fitness and needs concerning the number of bedrooms, you should go higher in order to benefit from the amazing views (yup - there a few stairs to climb, so opt for the lower floors if you don't like that). All in all, a great experience and I would be happy to come back.
We have stayed in airbnb apts in Paris, all over Italy, Iceland, and in 2 places in Turkey. This is our favorite!! Why?
Hatice has it well appointed with FANTASTIC forethought for all your needs--I cannot overemphasize this point. She has thought of EVERYTHING (even having a transit card there for you to load).
The kitchen is stocked appropriately for you to fix a family meal (which has been a problem in other places).
She and her daughter are lovely, considerate, and ACTIVELY work to make your time in their city and their apartment wonderful. Hatice actually checked in to make sure we had everything we needed. She booked our airport transfers (BTW, great service from the company she uses, too--on time, clean van, nice drivers).
The apt was even more convenient to Istiklal and Galata Bridge then we had estimated.
Quiet street and good sleep.
Fabulous apartment where everything worked and was comfy.
Safe area and apt.
We'd go back here in a heartbeat!
Ruby apartment was just perfect. Bigger than the photos, views more spectacular than the photos. We loved watching the night lights from the window. Perfect location, easy walk and close to centre for food and shopping and close to all the attractions. Stairs were always a good laugh at the end of the day! Thank you to Hatice for her hospitality. 100% recommended.
Die Wohnung ist der Knaller!
Tolle Aussicht und alles da, was man braucht!
Hatice ist sehr freundlich und immer zu erreichen, wenn man Hilfe braucht!
Hatice was so helpful during our stay in Istanbul, and even helped us order food when we were sick the first night. Her apartment was comfortable and we'll located. We will definitely stay there again when we visit Istanbul!
A wonderful apartment in a quiet area and yet close to the main sights . Clean and comfortable with great views of the Golden Horn. Restaurants and shops nearby. Hatice made us feel very welcome and helped us enjoy our time in Istanbul.
Thank you, Hatice!
We had a wonderful time at Hatice's apartment. We were 2 folks on our honeymoon. There are now many positive reviews, so I don't have to say that much. This is a clean, secure, comfortable apartment run by a wonderful and responsive host in a fantastic location. It has lots of little thoughtful touches for travelers, such as an Istanbulkart for getting around and a working phone line so you can get in touch with Hatice or make reservations at restaurants you want to go to. There's even a jug of purified water so you don't have to go buying bottles every day. Don't hesitate to book this apartment - it's perfect!
Hatice, you are a special person, helpful and cheerful thank you for all :)
The apartment is perfect with an amazing view, just like the pictures.
I recommend this place to everyone and if i come back to istanbul i would like to stay in this apartment again.
