The view from this apartment is stunning at any time of the day from the windows or balcony! It's a 24 hours holiday because of the view. The apartment may be small with a low ceiling, but it has two bedrooms and it has got everything you need for your stay. Ilhan is a very friendly host. He will help you to find your way around.
There is also a large map of Istanbul on a wall. Take pictures of the map with your smartphone so you can find your way around.
The public transport is very well organized in Istanbul. Buy an Istanbul Kart, upload it with an amount, for example 20 lira. The fare for bus, ferry, metro, tram, Istiklal tram and even some public toilets can be paid with your Istanbul Kart (except a dolmus). Try the breakfast at Van Kahvalti ev. It's very close to the apartment. You will enjoy an excellent eastern Turkish breakfast and good service.
We have enjoyed our stay very well. There was a gull's nest on the roof with two chicks. We could hear them squeak for food and we saw the mother flying to and fro to feed them.
If you have fear of heights, like me, it's a challange to sit on the balcony with the dephts and heights from the view, so be prepared!
I have stayed in many other apartments in Istanbul before, but this one is definitely a plus, also because of the location in Cihangir.
Enjoy your stay!
stay in your apartment was absolutely perfect. A very good equipment of the apartment as well as a wonderful view have made the day a success for you. The central location was great. They were very accommodating as hosts. For our heartfelt thanks.
Two small notes:
To contact locally it would be good to get the phone number with area code, because we had some failures and only the taxi driver had to help.
For people over 185 cm, the apartment is quite flat. I had to go mostly hunched with my 192 cm.
Overall, the apartment is highly recommended.
Sehr geehrter Ilhan,
der Aufenthalt in Ihrem Apartment war absolut perfekt. Eine sehr gute Ausstattung der Wohnung sowie eine wundervolle Aussicht haben die Tage bei Ihnen zu einem Erfolg werden lassen. Auch die zentrale Lage war super. Sie waren als Gastgeber sehr zuvorkommend. Dafür unseren herzlichen Dank.
Zwei kleine Anmerkungen:
Zur Kontaktaufnahme vor Ort wäre es gut die Telefonnummer mit Vorwahl zu erhalten, da wir einige Fehlversuche hatten und erst der Taxifahrer helfen musste.
Für Leute über 185 cm ist die Wohnung recht flach. Ich musste mit meinen 192 cm meist gebückt gehen.
Insgesamt ist Ihr Apartment absolut empfehlenswert.
We had a wonderful time in Istanbul thanks to Ilhan!
Everything was perfect, the apartment very cosy with a great view!
Ilhan is an extraordinary nice person, he really wants that you enjoy your days in Istanbul- he explains you all about the apartment and the city, he recommends places to go like having good breakfast, dinner.

Ilhan is the Best!

The apartment offers a great view on Galata Tower, Hagia Sophia and Blue Mosque. 2 bedrooms were enough for 4 people. Divided ceiling would be desirable. Heating was great because we cm snow and temperatures spent three days at 20 to 0 degrees.
Die Wohnung bietet einen tollen Ausblick auf Galataturm, Hagia Sophia und Blaue Moschee. 2 Schlafzimmer waren für 4 Personen ausreichend. Geteilte Decken wären wünschenswert. Heizung war super, da wir drei Tage bei 20 cm Schnee und Temperaturen um 0 Grad verbrachten.
Great location, walking distance to almost everything within easy reach, Tram is very close. Great view from the rooftop terrace. The apartment is nice and clean, everything is there what you need for everyday life, including the things that you normally do not have in your suitcase. Detergent, salt, pepper, spices, detergent, etc. Thank you Ilhan,!
Tolle Lage, zu Fuß fast alles gut erreichbar, Tram ist ganz in der Nähe. Super Aussicht von der Dachterrasse. Die Wohnung ist schön und sauber, alles da, was man zum täglichen Leben braucht, incl. der Dinge, die man normalerweise nicht im Koffer hat: Spülmittel, Salz, Pfeffer, Gewürze, Waschmittel etc. Thank you, ilhan!

We had a lovely time at this truly very sunny appartment on a top floor in one of the fanciest parts of Istanbul. It has a spectacular view on the city and the Bosphorus. The appartment is small but very comfortable and clean and has everything you need, including a small terrace where we had our sunny breakfast. We felt at home. Ilhan, the owner, is a perfect host. We would love to come back one day and stay again in this appartment. Thanks Ilhan!
Ilhan estaba muy sympatico.Nos ha recibido muy amable .El apartamento esta muy agoedor con unas vistas espectulares.
wir waren zu dritt im März in Istanbul bei Ilhan,die Wohnung war grossartig,wir fühlten uns wie echte Türken,alles war sehr sauber und die Aussicht einfach toll,es gab sogar Trinkwasser aus dem Wassertank.Ilhan ist sehr nett,obwohl er so lange auf uns warten mußte,die Anreise vom Flughafen war sehr langwierig und das mit der Istanbulcard etwas schwierig,unbedingt Kleingeld mitnehmen,der Automat nimmt nur kleine Scheine!Die Wohnung war nur sehr schwer zu finden,die Einheimischen schickten uns im Kreis herum,haben uns nach 3 Tagen wieder verirrt,es war sehr abenteuerlich.Ach ja,bis zur Wohnungstür sind es 86 Stufen,das ist der einzige Minuspunkt.Heuer geht's nach Lissabon,wieder mit Wimdu.
