Our experience with Gokce and Acar was great. It was just like we expected, and they were very kind. They gave us maps and tips of what to do around their place. Since it was New Year`s Eve, they threw a party in their apartment and invited us, which was great! We loved it.
I have been staying with Gokce and Acar for almost a week and it felt like a the perfect place to be - a home away from home. The whole appartment was beautiful, very clean and spacious and from there everything is reached quickly. Both of them were always available for questions and had maps and a metro card already prepared which made strolling around in istanbul very convenient. The kitchenis well equipped and i prepared food quite a few times. Thank you so much you two for making this trip such an easy and warm hearted journey. Highly recommended for a relaxed stay in the middle of the city! Will be back for sure***
I was very happy to stay in this beautiful flat. Everywhere you look there is something beautiful and it is spotlessly clean.
The room is smallish but comfortable for one person, you have your own wc and it even has a lock with your own key on the door, should you choose to use it. I was very impressed by this little detail!
The kitchen is well equipped, Gokce bought Turkish coffee and showed me how to use the machine. She had prepared a map of the neighborhood, information on Istanbul, there were a number of photographic albums on Istanbul and the sitting room is absolutely stunning! So bright and light! I loved their water turtles especially the smallest one :-)
I did not get to see much of either Gokce or Acar but the little I did they were cordial and helpful.
Being summer I did find it a bit noisy at night with the windows open, yet nothing to stop me from sleeping. The neighborhood is interesting and the metro is very close, which is great!
I would stay there again for sure!
Thank you guys
Gokce and Acar are wonderful hosts! Extremely easygoing, accessible, kind and fun to talk with, they can provide a lot of info on the area. They are very open with their space, so you don't feel confined to just your room, but privacy is easy to find as well. Living spaces are truly shared, although they aren't around a lot so we had the space to ourselves much of the time. The place is located about 25 minutes walking from Taksim, and 20 minutes to the ferries, so it was convenient and a nice, posh area to stay in while in Istanbul. We stayed there twice and would definitely stay there again.
We stayed for 5 nights at Gokce and Acars home. The whole flat and the room were really nice and clean. Both were very helpful to find restaurants, bazaar etc.. The flat is centrally located in a nice neighborhood near a Metro station. We felt very welcome and had a really nice stay and would therefore recommend to stay with Gokce and Acar.
Gokce and Agar are wonderful hosts.
Their apartment is quite spacious and located in a very unique spot. If you are on a budget but want to stay in a fancy neighborhood enjoying chic shops, cafes and restaurants, this is the place to be.
Gokce & Acar were awesome!
They truly know how to host guests. I total recomend them!!!!
The house was wonderful and clean, and the location was very central but calm and relaxing at the same time.
I just can say that i would love to come back!!! But know i'm waiting for you guys in Portugal!! Hope to see you soon :)
I am a little slow with my review (sorry) but this has been one of my best airbnb experiences. Gokce and Acar were not only wonderful (they even checked on me when the city shut down for May Day) but their home is absolutely spectacular. It could be in a design magazine! It has everything you need including maps, places to eat and little hand drawn message. Someone is definitely an artist in the family.
I thank you guys so much for opening up your fantastic home.
Oh, if you don't know Istanbul very well, this is about a 30 min train ride from the hub hub but its worth it if you value a sanctuary after a long day out.
We spent 4 nights in Gocke and Acar's flat and we are very happy with our stay. The room was everything that was advertised. It was quiet, clean, the bed was big enough for two and comfortable. Everything we needed was provided. The flat was spaceous, clean and beautifully decorated. It is easy to locate and very close to the metro, one stop from Taksim square.
Gocke and Acar were very friendly and helpful in every way and we would love to visit them again if we come back to Istanbul.
My wife and I were stayed for 6 days at Gokce & Acar apt, it was a good stay, the apt located in strategic place, walking distance to metro station (Osmanbey) as well as shopping places. The apt itself are clean and big, while our room are a little bit small that I thought but it was manageable. We shared stories with Gokce regarding to our experience in hosting via airbnb. She helps us to print the map, as well as recommend places to visit while we were there in Istanbul without any plan in mind. But later found out there are a lot of interesting places to explore. We will come back again. And we are more than happy to host you back in Jakarta when you have a plan to. Cheers
Gokce & Acar were great! They were hardly home and we're so quiet I didn't even notice they were there. They also left the room immaculate, clearing the sheets from the bed and leaving them neatly piled. I would definitely host them again!
