Veli is a great host! I did not have a place to stay in Istanbul until the day of my arrival, and when I contacted Veli in the morning, he replied instantly and saved me a lot of trouble.
The location is ideal for exploring the Asia side of Istanbul, and at the same time close from the historical parts of the city.
Veli is a fun guy to hang out with and learn Turkish culture from. When I arrived, he set me up with the Istanbul transit card, and we went to the movies with his friend. He gave me his Turkish music collection when he learned about my interest in it. He also taught me how to play tavla, and I hope to beat him without his help next time!
I would recommend staying at Veli's flat for a great Airbnb experience where you can immerse yourself in the local culture. I had a great time and would stay again when I return to Istanbul.
Veli was a fantastic host! As a first time user of airbnb, I wasn't sure about booking a place with a male host because I was a solo female travel and just always cautious when traveling alone. However, I'm so glad I read Veli's reviews and decided to stay at his apartment.
He was very warm and welcoming and made me feel comfortable my whole stay. When he was free, he showed me around the city and brought me to awesome places for food and dessert (ask him about his favorite soup place!). Interesting to talk to and hang out with and very helpful and open minded. He even brought back and order food for dinner/late night snacks a couple of the nights I stayed at his place. His brother also came out to explore the city as well, and it was fun getting to know the two of them.
The apt was clean and tidy. The room was large and had a lot of great lighting during the day. No complaints. The neighborhood is also great. It's definitely nice to be out of the touristy areas and to a neighborhood where you can see how locals live and spend their day. It has everything around it (food, shops, etc) and central to any of the major tourist areas you'd want to visit (no more than 10-25 min away from most things). Veli was a great person to hang out with and learn about the city and people from and I'd definitely recommend staying here.
Veli is a very smart and international guy,he is more open-minded than many other turkish. He can become your friend in a few minutes when you meet. He is very easy going and helpful to offer suggestions about where to visit.
I enjoyed staying at Veli's apartment for 4 nights there.The location was perfect at Asian side,metro/ferry/bus is just 5 mins waking distance away.
Veli's brother and friends are super friendly too. We had a great time hanging out together- playing pingpong at their university,photoshooting of night views,driving around,watching movies etc. Their favorite soup place in town is also my favorite soup place in Istanbul too!! :)
Thank you man, I will come back for sure!
Si quieres sentirte como locales, debe quedarse aquí.
Disfruté de ferry a la mañana de su casa para barrio de histórica.
Él es muy buen anfitrión, amable, servicial, relajado y su hermano, su amigo guapo también. Me hicieron llegar a gustar Estambul. Gracias amigos!!
Accoglienza fantastica ,confortevole appartamento situato in uno dei
quartieri di Istambul servitissimo da ogni mezzo di trasporto
It was easy to reach him prior to my arrival. He was also very flexible with check-in and check-out times. I enjoyed my stay at Veli's apartment, which is easy to reach by both buses and ferries from different parts of Istanbul. Veli also gave some useful advice on how to explore the city.
The reservation was canceled the day before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Veli is very good host. His flat is at very good location,clean and cozy.We loved spending time with him. He is very helpful and friendly guy. He takes you to the best places in the city and makes your trip awesome.We recommend everyone to stay with him and experience his cool flat.The room deserves every single penny we paid for. Thanks for everything mate.
Nice and clean location in the Asian heart of Istanbul. Veli is a very helpful and friendly. He helped me and other guests to find nice and cheap restaurants for breakfast and dinner. He has his own inimitable humor which makes your stay in his apartment very funny. I suggest to stay in Veli's location.
Veli and his friends were very nice guests. My place was in great condition after them. What is most important we had great communication during their stay and no problems what so ever. I can highly recommend them to any future hosts.
Veli staied at my B&B, he is nice, polite and cheerfull.
He offered me a delicious turkish snack (he is addicted to chocolate ; ) and he was always ready to chat.
I suggest him as guest.
Well, I know Veli for 5 years, he is a good friend who has a great sense of humor that is the first thing that I must indicate about him, so I am sure that you will be glad to know him and stay at his apt. Veli has been offering a low rate for his apt. unlike many of the users in the same region, it is just because his target which makes a point of meeting new people, friendship etc rather than making money. Additionally, as a traveler you will have the chance of (email hidden), Veli knows all the great places in Istanbul as he has lived several years in both European and Asian sides. I have met few guests of Veli, they were all glad to stay his apt., so I strongly recommend you to choose him.
