At least most of the people around me agree on my strong communication skills. Since my proficiency academically and practically is tourism, I have travelled a lot. And it is a pleasure for me to communicate with people.

Thank for the nice time in istanbul! The apartement was nice and in quite good location. Once in the morning we had no warm water but in the evening was fine. Thank you!
Staying with Kivanc was really great. He owns a couple of apartments in de neighborhood and he's always around answering your questions and fulfilling your needs. He speaks good English, too. The location is really great with the apartment towering over Kimpasa, the typical low key Istanbul neigborhood where President Erdogan grew up and on short walking distance of Istiqlal, the main shopping street around which a sparkling nightlife is concentrated. There's six lane road nearby which can be noisy during weekends especially. The apartment itself is really clean and economic. I'd come back here.
This place was exactly as pictured. Very clean, nice, and cozy and in a great location. I didn't interact with Kivanc a ton, but he was very nice about letting me leave my luggage there late on my last day. Thanks for a great stay~!
Good location, out of the touristy area but still close to taxi ranks, the metro, night life and less touristy food options. Very nice and clean self-contained room. There were however some communication difficulties with host about arranging a lift to the airport and about the electricity going out in our room, the host only seemed to respond to phone calls and left us hanging a bit on how the power/airport transfer booking where going, all in all a good stay that I would recommend if you don't usually need contact with hosts.
We were very happy to be hosted in this beautiful, practical and clean apartment. The location is very good and we were able to walk to both Taksim and the old city. Mr. Mirage who acted as housekeeper was very helpful and friendly. I would very much recommend this place.
Clean, well-located apartment with minimally but sufficiently equipped kitchen. There is street noise, so if you are a light sleeper bring earplugs. Very happy here for our two-person stay. The building manager gave us the key when we arrived.
Kivanc was a good adviser even before we arrive ; he explain us how to get to the flat from the airport. The key exchange was really easy. And the flat has a perfect situation. Ten minutes walks from Taksim place and only a few minutes to Istiklal Caddesi. We visited the modern and old Istanbul just by walking, so great!
Although our host didn't greet us, we did feel welcomed by the janitor. He didn't speak any English, but we tried to find ways to understand each other using gestures. The room was just as advertised, though I wouldn't recommend it for 4 people. It isn't enough space, although there were three beds (one queen bed). This was listed on the webpage. The location was also great. A short 15 minute walk to Taksim square and even a 5 minute walk to the nearest metro on Independence Ave. We really did like the location. The only issue that we had was a full day without any water whatsoever. We were told that this was a town hall problem and it was fixed by the next day. Thanks for the experience, Kivanc!!
Wir waren das erste Mal in Istanbul und waren sehr begeistert vTaton Kivanc und seinen Apartment. Wir haben letztendlich in einem gewohnt, welches etwas anders war als auf den Fotos aber nicht weniger modern und komfortabel eingerichtet.
Von der Wohnung aus ließ sich alles super per Fuß erreichen und wenn man die öffentlichen Verkehrsmittel benutzen wollte, war es bis zum Taksimplatz nicht weit.
Kivanc oder sein Mitarbeiter standen uns zu jeder Zeit mit Rat und Tat zur Seite und gaben uns Insidertips.
Wir können es nur weiterempfehlen!
