İstanbul da yaşıyorum
The apartment is as clean and nice as on the pictures. Due to a delay, we arrived late, but Ibrahim was so kind to wait till late in the evening for us. The sheets, towels, floor, basically the entire house was clean and neat. Ibrahim showed us quickly how everything worked and provide us with a public transportation card that we could top off, stocked the fridge with breakfast-food and gave us a mobile phone with credit to call him with any questions. It was comforting to have a working mobile phone for just in case. It was my best AirBNB experience so far, I highly recommend it and would like to stay there again when I visit Istanbul again. One disclaimer though; the apartment is on the 4th floor and the building doesn't have an elevator. For us it was no problem at all, but of you have difficulties with walking stairs, this might be a challenge, and the hill's in Istanbul will too ;))
Ibrahim est un hôte exemplaire.Vous serez acceuillis dans la bonne humeur avec beaucoup de chaleur et d'attention.
Inutile de rajouter autres choses..tout est dit dans son profil et tout est juste.
The apartment is modern and very quiet even if very close of shops, bars and restaurant.
Ibrahim did his best to make life easy during my stay : food for breakfast in the fridge, transportation card and prepaid mobile phone were available for the guest. This was much appreciated.
We had a nice time in this central appartement. Everything was as nice as on the pictures; modern, clean and comfortable. While our stay we had bad luck with the weather, what was no problem because we had not to suffer with cold water or cold rooms. There is a well working heating system in the flat (this is not taken for granted in turkish city flats). Additionaly Ibrahim provided some movies for his home sinema system, which was realy nice - espeacially for the rainy days.
İbrahim provided a İstanbul Transport Card, a turkish mobile phone and a fridge with various groceries, as well.
This was our first experience with Airbnb and we don't regret it at all.
Your flat is very nice clean, the fridge is full.
C'est un appartement idéal. Il est à 30 min de sultanamet. Dans un quartier très sympa très agréable à vivre. Ibrahim nous fournit une carte de transport et un téléphone (website hidden) pas hésiter une seconde!
The flat is pretty comfortable an very well located! There is everything you need for an enjoyable stay and Ibrahim is really attend to his guests and their needs.
Thank you very much Ibrahim! It was just perfect!
I can't say enough about this place and the owner. The owner met us nearby and brought us to the apartment, which is on a very lively street (yet quiet at night) in a fantastic neighbourhood. The apartment was very comfortable and extremely clean. Host pays great attention to detail and made a special effort to make us comfortable. Perfect in every way!
Ibrahim's place is very conveniently located and has all modern conveniences, including washing machine, iron, dryer, hair dryer etc. It is (email hidden)ly street full of shops and cafes, but very quiet at night. Ibrahim was a superstar! He responded to all emails very quickly and allowed us to bring a 4th person, although initially we agreed on three guests. He sent a very detailed description with maps of how to get to his apartment from the airport (4 different ways!) stating the price and the approximate time length. He even gave us some clever recommendations of how to behave ourselves in Istambul so that no to lose extra money ))). Next, Ibrahim has a fixed check-in and check-out times. When we arrived he was already waiting for us in the flat, and when we departed (early in the morning) he turned up is agreed time sharp so that to collect the keys. He explained everything very carefully and in detail, showed how all appliances work etc. He even had some snacks and fruit for us to eat and a cell phone with a local sim card in case we need to contact him urgently! All in all, staying at Ibrahim's flat was a most pleasant experience! If you're planning a trip to Istanbul, you should definitely choose this place! Thank you, Ibrahim!
Ibrahim's apartment was the most comfortable and cleanest we have ever stayed in and we have stayed in many. If we had the opportunity to redo our stay in Istanbul, we would not have stayed in Beyoglu (European Side) for 5 days then 3 days in Kadikoy (Asian Side) at Ibrahim's apartment. We would have stayed the entire time in Ibrahim's apartment because it was centrally located. From his apartment, it is an 8 minute walk to the Kadikoy pier to pick up a ferry to Eminonu on the European side.
The ferry ride is 15 minutes and pleasurable. From the Eminonu pier, you can walk easily over the Galata Bridge up the hill to the Grand Tower area with its cute shops and restaurants or continue up to Istiklal street which is the 5th avenue of Istanbul with a ton of good restaurants just off the main drag on Navizade Sokak. An absolute must while in the city. Also from Eminonu pier it is an easy walk through the fish markets, spice bazaar and Grand Bazaar. From there it is a hop skip and jump to the Aya Sofia, Blue Mosque and Topkapi Palace (don't miss the Harem, separate entrance fee - 15 TL, better than Palace). The walk back to Eminonu Pier is about 25 minutes from Sultanahmet Square or you can grab the omnipresent taxi back to the pier for 10TL or US$5. Each ferry ride across the Bosphorus costs 1.5TL. Since Ibrahim has a transportation card available for his renters, you save 7 US $ or 14TL from having not to purchase the card. All you have to do is put the card in the machine at the piers and slide in a 20TL bill and be credited with that amount which is good for 13 trips back and forth across the Bosphorus. By staying at Ibrahim'syou have the best of both worlds. You get to enjoy the peace and quiet and nice restaurants in Kadikoy where Ibrahim's pad is located and the easy ability to jump on a water bus to the European side. Another plus to staying at his place is the fact that he stocks the refrigerator with food for you such as juice, milk, eggs, bread, butter, cheese and fruit. Hell of a deal. The only negative is the apartment is located on the 5th floor requiring you to walk up four floors in a spiral stairwell. Think of it as a good leg strengthing exercise. Candace and Rayl
