Lovely apartment in an interesting area of a fantastic city. Kerem was a perfect host and checked on me regularly to ask if I was fine. He informed me ahead of booking that there might be some noise due to nearby constructionlabour. Turned out to be not really disturbing. The apartment is spacious, stylish and has everything you might need. The gym was not perfect but above standard. Really nice with pool and sauna. Definitely a good choice and a place I would chose for the next time in Istanbul.
Hi, nice host, needs and expectations were met. The street itself is not exactly beautiful, but the building is clean, safe, new, with professional doormen and security. Proximity to shops and Taksim is excellent. Neighborhood is in transition, moving from traditional, older-style dwellings to more modern, condo-type buildings.
Fantastic spot to stay. Very central, a short walk to Taksim square and great bars and restaurants. Highly recommend the 360 restaurant but make sure to reserve 2 days in advance.
Kerem was an excellent host and I can not say, a friend! Had a great evening out with him and his fiancé and all kinds of recommendations of cool places to go in Istanbul.
The flat is bright, clean with all amenities needed. I loved the pool and sauna - no need to pay for an expensive hamman, all is there for you!
Only one small warning, the flat is close to a mosque which makes for a early morning. But the singing is beautiful!
This apartment has a high standard of quality, everything is new, clean and comfortable.
It is highly recommended.
On top of that you can also contact the reception via apartment's intercom when you need a taxi, in 5 minutes it arrives. We found it useful specially in the evening and for coming back to the airport.
Personally, I didn't like the window curtains which can't block properly the sunlight in the early morning. But that's a matter of habits :)
Kerem is a great host: very helpful, he gave us good suggestions and advices, he provided city guides and every kind of information.
To summarize: highly recommended.
A fabulous apartment in a lovely building with every amenity you could ask for. It's modern, comfortable, well kitted out (even found a little hairdryer which was great) and spacious. It also has a lovely little balcony where you can sit in the evenings with a drink. We didn't make the most of the buildings other facility, such as the pool, but they were just downstairs should we have decided to use them. The porters are really helpful as well and booked our taxi to the airport on Kerem's suggestion. It's only a 5-10 minute walk to Taksim Square and its various transport links and shops. It didn't take us long to get around at all.
There are a couple of supermarkets at the top of the road as well as a (website hidden) was easy and the apartment has everything you need to prepare meals and drinks. It also has a lovely long dinning table which adds to the homely feel. The shower is also excellent and the bed is comfortable. There is plenty of storage space and we felt very at home in the few days we were there.
We spent most of our time out and about making the most of the city so didn't get a chance to meet Kerem face to face. However, he was an excellent host providing useful advice before and during our trip and always responding to messages quickly. We were left with a super guide book and maps and got planning our explorations on our first night. All in all, a very easy, comfortable and pleasant way to see an amazing city.
Kerem is a wonderful host. He kindly left the keys for us at the front reception and then greeted us later that evening after he returned home from work. The building and apartment are very clean and the doormen are really friendly and helpful. The location is super close to Taksim square but far enough away to not be noisy from street traffic. The street the apartment is located features a mix of new residential buildings, old houses and auto repair shops. There is a bit of a hill to climb each morning to make your way to Taksim but we enjoyed the exercise. Overall it was a great place to stay and we enjoyed our time in Istanbul.
This is a great appartment. Its is very new, clean and spaceous. It corresponds to high quality european standards: no cheap materials are used for constructing the house, there is effective heating (I was the there end of december where it can be cold in the night) and good eletronic equipment. Taksim can be reached on foot. Kerim is a great helpful host. To summarize, I can highly recommend it.
Kerem was a great host, very friendly and provided anything one might need. Apartment was top notch, modern and clean with decent location about 10-15 min walk from Taksim's main walking street.
The sauna and swimming pool were not in service when I went so maybe check on that beforehand.
We loved staying at this apartment, it's only a few minutes walk from Taksim Square and awesome shopping street! The apartment was spotlessly clean and beautifully furnished. Kerem met us after a long day of travel and briefed us on the apartment, building facilities, local area, restaurants etc. Kerem was also very helpful and went above and beyond with looking up some flights to Cappadocia and kindly let us borrow a phone charger during our stay! Lifesaver when you reply on phone for wifi.
The building staff were also very friendly. We really enjoyed our stay in Istanbul and the apartment was perfect and met all our needs. We recommend this apartment and would love to stay again!
Nice central area ( many close places to explore). Located on large hill so bring walking shoes or take advantage of the nice door person to easily call a cab for you (bonus!) & metro system is close & easily navigated.
The flat itself is beautiful, clean, comfortable & safe.
Although we didn't get a chance to meet Kerem face to face (maybe next time :)), he was a great host- easy to reach & quick to respond with any info needed (thank you for that Kerem- much appreciated). He was both professional & friendly :).
Overall, I highly recommend this space!
Kerem and his friend were not just polite and reliable, even are kind and friendly as well. They left their room tidy and clean. They are excellent guests. I absolutely recommend them!
Kerem and his friend were great guests! I love hosting people that are excited to see what my little white island has to offer. They were neat and respectful and I would invite them back into my home anytime!
