Reviews of this property
Thank you very much, Isik! You are the best (a perfect host)!
The apartement is spacious, very confortable and nice. Everything you need is provided. We really enjoyed staying here, we have felt like at home! It was a pleasure for us to visit Istanbul (a wonderful city). Who wants to experience hospitality is right here.
We will go there again, to the Isik house!
The location is perfect - ca 200 m from Taksim Square. However, the apartment it self was a bad experience. It is a moistured and molded apartment. You can smell it at once when you get inside the apartment. And at the same time, they are building a new house next to the master bedroom - 10 cm from the window!! That means, that is was not possible to get fresh air in the apartment. So we were there as little time as possible - we were coughing the hole time - and still are doing it after we came home. The bathroom was good.
Reviews for this host's other properties
The positive points:
- Isik is a pleasant person and answers quiclky to your requests.
- The apartment is closed from Taksim place and from public transports (metro, tramway, shuttle to the Ataturk airport, in a quiet street, at the last floor.
- the building and the apartment are safe
_ kitchen is well-equipped but it is better to eat outside because you can find easily food & drinks cheaps to Istanbul
- Balcony to see Istanbul
The negative points:
- 3 floors not easy to go upstairs until the apartment (even with empty hands) for persons who are not young (we have got 50 years old)
- Apartment is clean overall but not very well maintained, as follows:
1) Not very good bedding
2) Painting to restore in the apartment
3) Bathroom to restore also (mainly shower and lighting
4) Old TV set and internet cables to the box need to be changed
5) Balcony is not very safe (no protective barriers and can be dangerous for young people)
6) old wobbly chairs
So to conclude the apartment could be better after a few changes and some restorations.
Appropriate for not demanding persons
Great stay, nice apartment, beautiful view over Istanbul. Central stay at Taksim Square with easy access to public transport.
Isik was very friendly and helpful during the entire stay and always easy to contact. We will definitely come back!
We stayed three days in Isiks apartment and had a very great time. The apartment ist beautiful and has everything you need: air conditioning, kitchen, comfy bed, much space, drinking water... From the terrasse we had an amazing view over Istanbul and could watch the amazing sunset. The apartment is very close to taksim square and therefore perfectly located for sightseeing, boat trips and shopping. Isik was available at any time to help us and give great advise (e.g. where to go and how to come there). The Istanbulcard which he provided was very useful for public transport. Isik is the perfect host and we would recommend his apartments at any time and hope to come back some time soon. Thank you very much!
we had a wonderful time in a great city in a perfect appartment. The location is ideal, Taksim square around the corner and the flat in a quiet street. We enjoyed sunny moments on the terrace with a great view accompanied by lovely cats. The flat was very clean, beds of good quality, drinking water was provided as well. The Istanbulkart was given to us by Isik so that we could use it straight away. Isik is a very friendly person offering his help/support any time. Even a late/early arrival at 2 o`clock in the morning was no problem. We truly enjoyed being at his place and hope to come back some time. Thank you!
Isik was a perfect host. Our Airport Transportation has Isik perfectly organized. The apartment is well equipped and has a beautiful terrace with views over the city. We felt very comfortable and would definitely come back there.
