The apartment is modern, recently decorated and has a large terrace with a beautiful sea view. The apartment is airconditioned and consists of an open plan kitchen/dining/living area with a large, plasma 3D television, modern kitchen fittings, including a gas hob, microwave, fridge/freezer and washing machine. There is a double ensuite bedroom and the apartment is cleaned daily. Towels and bedlinen are included.The apartment is located in the centre of Sultahnamet. Within a 5-7 minute walk are Topkapi palace, Hagia Sophia and the Basilica cistern. The apartment is conviently located near many bars and restaurants (1 minute walk) and is within a 2 minute walk of the shore where you can take a romantic walk.
the apartment is really beautiful, spacious and clean and the view of the sea is amazing. the host was very cooperative, responded to my calls always even when we had water shortage and it turned to be a government problem, the host sent us 4 gallons of water for basic usage until water is restored.
the bedroom has a queen size bed and a closet, and living room has two comfy and stylish sofa beds.
Three issues to be highlighted:
1- the bathroom smells bad because of ventilation.
2- there is no washing machine (the host offered to take our laundry to wash it and dry then bring it back the next day).
3- the apartment is on third floor and there is no elevator, so if you have lots of luggage and children it will be a bit of a hassle.
overall, it was a good experience and I wouldn't mind to rent the unit again.
