Murats apartment was absolutly buitiful,whit a great view over Istanbul and the Galata-Tower It's the perfect place to enjoy Istanbul ant the trendy area of Beyoglu.
The apartment is smal but very comfortly for two persons.
Murat and his neighbour Cagatay were very friendly and helpful, so that we realy can advise tis flat.
Had a very enjoyable stay. Both Murat and Cagata were very helpful and flexible. Be it providing recommendations on the best parts of Istanbul or allowing us to check out late in the evening.
The location of the flat is great. Between the old and new parts of the city (a few mins walk from Tophane).
Flat is extremely clean, secure and with all the mod cons. Everything you need...
Would certainly recommend people to stay here.!
We had a wonderful stay at Murat's flat. Although he was of town, we had excellent communications and his friend Cagatay met us and was very helpful. The apartment is in a great location, in a very interesting neighborhood, very close the tram stop and within walking distance of Galata tower. The building is lovely and the flat has been remodeled with great sense of style and high quality materials. The apartment was very clean, the two beds worked well for 2 people and the view from the balcony is superb. We very much enjoyed our stay. Thank you!
Murat's apartment (we had one on the third floor) is really great. Located in a quiet and but also alive area, it is perfectly located to go easily in the different strategic points of the city. Tastefully decorated. A magnificent view of the city. We took our breakfasts admiring the view of the Galata Tower and the neighboring mosques. Murat (and Galatai) is a very caring host to its guests.
3 days were too short to “capture“ Istanbul, I hope that we will come again.
Murat's flat was in excellent condition, and the location is convenient for the tourist sights while still retaining a local feel. Everything was clean and comfortable, and the flat has an amazing view. Highly recommended.
Murat was a lovely host - very helpful, warm and accommodating. His apartment was comfortable, well furnished and conveniently located to reach the major attractions. We had a fabulous time in Istanbul and would return to Murat's in a heartbeat!
Very attentive host and excellent location with stunning views from the balcony. We had expected the flat a little bigger and the bathroom could have used a deep clean, but other than that, great experience altogether!
A most welcoming and generous host. Murat was there as promised to greet me and show me into apartment. I was lucky to catch him again on his way home from work as I was going out so was able to have a relaxed chat and ask questions which Murat was only too pleased to assist with.
As we were both busy, we communicated via email which worked well for both of us as Murat was very quick to get back to me with answers and solutions to any needs I had.
My partner and I returned home after New Year dinner to gifts of Murats favourite wine and traditional pomegranate... Which we devoured for good luck. Very sweet...
Definitely recommend staying here... Oh, and I forgot to mention... The apartment was fry clean, smelt nice and the view is to die for... I didn't feel the need to go out with that view... Galata tower, Mercan Dede, and pomegranate are instilled in my memory of Istanbul. Thanks Murat
Murat is a perfect host, kind and “elegant”, very thoughtful, always ready to help us and to give us useful information. His house is pretty and has every comfort. It’s in a strategic position, comfortable to reach, by walking, the old town (Sultanahmet) and also the modern part of the city where you can live Istanbul by night (Istiklal Caddesi).
Beautiful and clean apartment. Perfect location.
Murat stayed in our apartment and all I can say that he is a real gentlemen. Nice, polite and well educated. Great communication from start to finish. He even brought a Turkish sweet specialties - lokum. He is always welcome in our house
I have stayed at Murat's building in different flats twice and I enjoyed both my visits very much. The apartments have everything you need. There is even a washer and a dryer in the building that you may use. His flats are located in a historical building that gives you the feeling that you are visiting a different age but they are also very well furnished modernly with a minimalist taste to make you comfortable during your visit. All the little details are very well thought to make you feel like you are living in an authentic Turkish home. The flats have a stunning view. The location is very convenient for visiting the historical Istanbul, you can also easily walk to Istiklal street to experience the night life, it is also very close to the bosporus and Istanbul Modern. On top of all Murat is an excellent host. He is very helpful and since he also lives in the top floor of the building you can reach him when you need him. He cares about the happiness of his guests. I definetely recommend staying in any of the flats in his building. It is where I'll always stay whenever I visit Istanbul.
