Tourism in Turkey is booming and we thought we could give more value that hotels can offer and for less. This self-catering accommodation happens to be in the city of Istanbul that was ' The Cultural Capital of Europe for the year 2010'.
People love the locals, who have an endless supply of hospitality, good-humor and insightful conversation at their disposal. We love the fact that when we walk down a city street, layers of history unfold before us. Visitors love listening to the sound of the müezzins duelling from their minarets and they love seeing the sun set over the world's most beautiful skyline. People love the restaurants, the bars and the tea gardens. But most of all, we love the fact that in İstanbul, an extraordinary cultural experience lies around every corner.
The high-octane hub of eating, drinking and entertainment in the city, Taksim/Beyoğlu is where visitors and locals come in search of good restaurants, bohemian bars, live-music venues, hip hotels and edgy boutiques. Built around the major boulevard of İstiklal Caddesi, it incorporates a mix of bohemian residential districts such as Çukurcuma and Cihangir, bustling entertainment enclaves such as Asmalımescit and historically rich pockets such as Galata and Karaköy that have morphed into hipster central.
We are privileged to be in the very heart of Istanbul, just fifty meters from the famed Istiklal Street (Taksim-Beyoglu-Galata-Pera-Tunel-Galatasaray-Tepebasi), with its unrivaled reputation for restaurants, cultural monuments, shopping, entertainment and cultural pursuits.
The flat is located in an excellent location.. Everything you want is at walking distance.. The owner is very very communicative and responsive to enquiries, he was generous enough to offer very early check in at 9:00, and while the flat was not ready, he offered another flat to rest until my flat is ready. I will go there again when I visit Istanbul next time
The location is what makes this apartment, it is walking distance to istikal street, takism square and metro. Apartment is simple. I believe there are several flats in building being rented so layout maybe a little different but all the accommodations are the same. The owners responded quickly to emails and even set up airport pickup for us ( even for two separate arrival times) and greeted both arrivals from airport.
The main positive of the apartment was that it was in a perfect location-right off of Istiklal street and near Taksim square. The personnel were also very helpful in arranging someone to pick up from the airport.
That being said, the apartment really needs some work on the following:
-The entire apartment smelled like cat urine. We had to buy several air fresheners to make it reasonable.
--The bedroom air conditioner did not work properly (did not cool) and turned off every 15 minutes. As a result, we slept on the pull out bed in the living room. We informed the personnel, but this was not fixed.
-The shower was terrible. It was either scalding hot or extremely cold.
-The main door to the apartment was very difficult to unlock.
The apartments are in a great location, very centric. The apartments are very comfortable and the personnel is efficent and kind. We were very good and not only we recommend the place but we surely will return.
Convenient location off Istikal Street. Staff were friendly and courteous and the apartment was simple but clean. It is located in a very busy area and noise from the street and adjacent apartments was prominent!! Also smoking is allowed in the building and will filter into your rooms! Use your street smarts in this area!
Estar a 50 metros de Avenida Istiklal y 200 metros de Taksin es una gran ventaja y si a eso se le agrega un servicio personalizado y atento, ni hablar. Puedes elegir cada mañana un restaurante diferente para desayunar con una variedad de bufet o si prefieres vas al mercado y lo preparas tu mismo. El servicio es de primera desde cargarte las valijas hasta acompañarte a comprar tiquetes pasando por un jugo de granada y naranja.
