Reviews for this host's other properties
This was a very Nice Apartment and very clean..the peoples in the Office was Nice and give us Good Tipps..we Come back..thank u for all
Very friendly hosts, very helpful that the niece speaks excellent German. Clean, nice Quariter, quiet - despite of busy location. Area around somewhat dilapidated but not far to walk to Istiklal Caddesi.
Sehr freundliche Gastgeber, sehr hilfreich daß die Nichte ausgezeichnet Deutsch spricht. Sauberes, nettes Quariter, ruhig - trotz verkehrsreicher Lage . Gegend rundherum etwas baufällig aber nicht weit zu Fuß zur Istiklal Caddesi.
We chose this apartment based on others' reviews and the promotion made by the owner, Erdal. Well, we were a bit dissapointed. Sorry Erdal, but we felt that it was overrated, maybe we have high expectations! This area definately not suitable for those travelling with children or to those who wanted a decent place to roam. I would rather promote the Sultanahmet area, where you wont spent unnecessary time for travelling. The traffic in Istanbul is heavy! Another thing, in the manual it stated that if we were to checkout early or late at night, you just need to leave your key in your apartment..well, we did!! And guess what..we were stranded in between 2 locked doors.. the front door and the door to our apartment. We were lucky that someone from Malaysia, willing to open their door when we knocked at night, we dont have a choice. We check out early to stay in Sultanahmet, even after we had paid the full rent.
Pros: the staff was friendly, especially Erdal's niece (kept our luggage on our last day while we wandered around), enough space for two people to sleep in, they provided us with welcome food gifts, security alarm, working stove/fridge
Cons: Shower was directly above the toilet. Spider webs. Walking to the actual door of the apartment was filthy and no lighting. Was also surprised that when I used the toilet there was trimmed BODY hair in the basin. I am not kidding -- so it looks like they did not clean out the room before my friend and I used it.
It is worth paying a little extra for their other rooms -- like the Red Butterfly Room.
We booked this appartment on the internet - based on the pictures (fewer than now) and the location. The team was very accommodating and kind.
Pro's: Low price, clean accommodations, nicely furnished kitchen, location center of town
Contra's: basement flat - windows barred, no chance of escape in case of fire. Damp due to basement and no heating/ventilation in bathroom. Bed not big - 120 cm. bedroom windows into air-shaft (5 store house), all bathroom and WC tubes going into shaft= noisy flushing all night. Small bedroom window (over bed) into staircase= noise all night and light blinking from alarm.
According to PowerPoint send to us by owner the bus from Atatürk stops just 200 m from app. This is not so for the next long term since the road is being renovated - together with most of the area. So count on ½ hour walk on very bad pavement from Taksim.
Everything Erdal promises in her advertisement she delivers.
I highly recommend her apartments, the apartment is in a good and safe location, and you would not find cleaner apartments any where in the world,, with all the equipment you require for your stay, plus internet too. Nothing is too much trouble for Erdal and her team to ensure your stay is a happy and enjoyable one. I would like to thank them all, and I would not hesitate to stay there again, and recommend if you plan a stay in Istanbul this is where you stay.
Erdal and her team were just fantastic. They responded to any issue with speed and efficiency. My previous stay in Istanbul was at a five star hotel and i would say that i was more comfortable at the apartment compared to the hotel. The apartment is as the picture so you get a full picture before you book. I save a lot of of money on food and accommodation cost. The main shopping area is at the end of the road so i did not miss out on everything. I could leave like the local and see another side of Istanbul that could not be experienced if i stay in an hotel. The apartment were very clean, secured and comfortable also. With the positive experience i had from now on i will stay in an the apartments rather than an hotel.
the apartment is nice, clean and well equipped, it is located near transportation (taxi, tram, bus ...) and a very lively avenue for both outputs for businesses that host team is available to listen and respond quickly if needed
l'appartement est sympa, propre et bien équipé
Il est situé pres des transports ( taxi,tram,bus... ) et d'une avenue tres animée tant pour les sorties que pour les commerces
l'équipe d'accueil est disponible, à l'écoute et répond rapidement si besoin
The apartment is great. It is quiet, it is big enough, it is clean, it is in the middle of Istanbul, it has fair prices; in it you have everything you need and the host is very welcoming. I'd recommend this flat to anyone who visits Istanbul.
Apartment very well located, 5 min. the central part of Istilklá 7 min Galata Tower and 10 tram. Clean, comfortable, although the building is old and the stairs just maintained, the apartment is renovated. The only drawback in winter is that the bathroom has no heating, ordered a small electric heater for the bathroom but did not have. Both the owner and the clerk very friendly. Only speak Turkish and used English, but we understood each other very well.
Apartamento muy bien ubicado, a 5 min. la parte central de Istilklá 7 min de la torre de Gálata y 10 del tranvía.
Limpio, cómodo, aunque el edificio es viejo y las escaleras poco cuidadas, el apartamento está renovado.
El único inconveniente en invierno es que el baño no tiene calefacción, pedimos una pequeña estufa eléctrica para el baño pero no tenían.
Tanto la propietaria como la empleada muy amables. Sólo hablan turco y la empleada inglés, pero nos entendimos muy bien.
