                        I had the joy of staying for just under a week at this lovely place. The facilities were wonderful and the views breathtaking. I had a marvellous stay on my own, enjoying the sights and sounds of the local area and Istabbul. Nahide was a fantastic hostess. She made sure I was picked up from the airport and delivered safely after a long flight from Australia. I couldn't ask for more. THANK YOU!!! I would recommend this place without hesitation.

                        My husband and I had a great time in the apartment, which is just down from Istiklal. The location was perfect, because you have access to all the restaurants in the area, and the quaint shops and cafes in Cihangir and around Galata, yet you can cruise down busy Istiklal to get to the tram for the Old City. There's a small grocery store just down the street for your supplies. Yes, the hike up to the apartment gets your heart-rate going, but the view from the terrace makes it all worth it. A few things to note, especially for Americans: the bath only has tub with one of those hand-head shower attachments, so there is no fixed shower nozzle. We took baths so that worked fine. Also, per the description, there is just a washer (no dryer), but there are wash and fold services in the area. The apartment pretty much looks just like the photos. The sleeping area is upstairs, in a large finished attic space. There are a number of wardrobes for clothes. The king-sized bed had a duvet on it. The mattress seemed to be a coil mattress. Not the most comfortable, but not the really hard mattresses I often see in Europe either. Tucked behind a wardrobe is a twin bed, that also has its own nightstand and mirror. Given the ceiling height, it would be suitable for an older child traveling with family. The living room, kitchen galley and eating area downstairs are nicely decorated. There's plenty of cutlery, plates, bowls and cups, plus knives for food preparation. There's also a coffee maker and an electric water kettle, as well as a dishwasher. There is no landline in the apartment, so if you need a phone be sure to bring a cell phone that will work in Turkey. However, there is a flatscreen TV and a CD player. Many travelers have left guidebooks in the apartment, so if you've left yours behind never fear! Nahide and her husband are great people. We had some issues with the wifi while we were there, and they were happy to fix them as quickly as possible. The apartment was a great introduction to Istanbul and we were so happy to have found it.

                        We very much appreciated being picked up at the airport - it felt like friends or family greeting us at the airport. Very nice touch. The apartment was exceptional and spotlessly clean. The pictures do not do this place justice as we cannot properly depict the stunning view of the river, Galeta Tower, and mosques. The view from the balcony is outstanding! In fact we went to a few patio restaurants and bars looking for a better view but could not find a better view. The location is excellent and easy to navigate to and from. We took the street car to the funiculaire a few times but mostly we just walked as since walking Istiklal street is so entertaining or we took a cab. The area is very safe and comfortable walking around day or night ( we even let our young teenagers go out shopping on their own). The Hayvore restaurant down the street is delicious - thanks for the recommendation. However, we also enjoyed just walking to the end of Istiklal and indulging in the food from the street vendors. We would gladly recommend this apartment to friends and family. We hope to return one day soon. Thank you for the warm welcome and great stay in Istanbul.

                        Let me tell you a story ... We are picked up at the airport by Nahide's driver, he waits when the flight is delayed AND when the airline loses our luggage! Finally we arrive frazzled, hot and travel weary at the apartment. Yes the stairs are 4-5 flights up but Nahide and her husband helped with the luggage. The door opens on a calm and peaceful space, utterly spotless and we are drawn to the the french doors leading out onto the terrace. A wow moment! Across the terracotta roofs with minarets spiking skywards, we look down on the Golden Horn, Hagia Sophia, Blue Mosque in the distance. The jewel of this apartment is undoubtedly this terrace. The real jewel however is Nahide and her husband Dorak You remember the lost luggage ... well when we couldn't speak Turkish to explain delivery address, Nahide, took over, organised for 30 kg suitcase to be delivered to her apartment nearby, the airline did so at 12.30 AM!!!. Then Dorak lugged it up all those stairs at 1 AM, all with a smile on his face! We mentioned we love drinking tea from a teapot, one arrived the next day. The restaurant recommendations were wonderful. This is a perfectly positioned apartment, down a lane just off the main pedestrian street, away from the tourist side across the Bosphorous, but with quick taxi or public transport access. You really feel you are experiencing the true Turkish lifestyle. As I said at the beginning, a lovely apartment with everything you need and more, especially with that terrace. But my recommendation is built around the support you receive from Nahide ... in an unknown environment she makes it feel like home. I cannot recommend this apartment highly enough. PS Oh and those stairs, you get used to them and they allow you guilt free eating.

                        Nahide has got a great spot here. So close to Taksim Square and the crazy road but nice and tucked away and quiet. Having a college with nice grounds and trees across the alley creates a nice feeling and outlook all the way down to the Bosphorus and the historic Mosques in the far distance. We had a couple of lovely evenings on the balcony with a cold wine. It was a lovely 4 days. Glad we used Nahide's recommended driver for airport transport and she was very helpful with directions, advice on shopping and introduction to a good guide.

                        This rental is conveniently located and is accessible to great restaurants and fabulous shopping. The apartment was even lovelier than the pictures and it is a quiet retreat despite being in the middle of Beyoglu's hustle and bustle. Nahide and her family were accommodating hosts and very helpful. I will definitely be back!

                        This apartment was an ideal base in Istanbul. So much character and charm and the BEST views of the old city. The photos on the listing don't do it justice- it's spectacular. The neighborhood is the new cultural hot spot of Istanbul- similar to East or West Village of NYC. Many bars, clubs and unique enclaves with lots of charm. Nahide was also a pleasure to deal with. When returning to Istanbul, there's no question of where I will be staying. Definitely returning to this spot!

                        Our family of 3 (with an eleven year-old) had an amazing stay for a week here. The location is ideal, easy walk to Istiklal Cad. with its hundreds of shops and restaurants while the apartment is tucked away on a quiet side street. Just exploring the blocks around the apartment provided a phenomenal experience. Lots of antique stores, cool second-hand shops, contemporary clothing designers, cafes, art galleries and the Galatasaray Turkish Bath is directly across the street. You walk up 5 steep flights of stairs to the apartment. Once you arrive on the main floor there is a living room, kitchen with a small eating area, bathroom and then another set of stairs to a sleeping loft that has a queen and twin bed. Off the main room is a balcony from which you can see the Galata Tower and out across the Golden Horn to the Topkapi Palace, Blue Mosque and many of the major landmarks of Sultanhamet. We spend our mornings drinking coffee and having breakfast on the balcony, which was a highlight of the trip. The apartment is adequately stocked with kitchen suppliers. The wifi, washing machine and all of the kitchen utilities functioned as expected. The owner arraigned a driver to pick us up when we arrived from the airport since we were very jet lagged from the long trip (flew in from the US West Coast). And the owner’s mom met us when we arrived, making our entry to the apartment and Istanbul smooth and easy. Istanbul is a compelling, teeming, yet very hospitable city. This apartment was the perfect base from which to explore, take some down-time and begin to get to know Turkey.

                        We stayed in this wonderful apartment for 5 nights in April, 2011 for our first trip to Istanbul. The location is absolutely fantastic, on a small sidestreet right off Istiklal. It was really easy for us to get there from Ataturk airrport... take the Havas bus to Taksim and just walk for 10 min. There is a very convenient little supermarket right on the sidestreet, and we really enjoyed dining at Hayvore next to it (which was featured in Istanbuleats.com as one of their favorite spots to eat in Istanbul). The same sidestreet, on the other side of Istiklal Cad., is full of bars featuring live music and is a great place to have a beer or two before heading back to apartment. And then there is the view off your balcony... the photos don't do that view any justice. It is THE postcard view you would want if you are paying top dollar to dine at some fancy rooftop restaurant. At night, you can see Topkapi palace, Aya Sophia, Blue Mosque and the Suleimaniye Mosque all lit up in their brilliant colors. Nahide and her family was very friendly and helpful to us when we arrived. When we had a problem with the satellite tv (overzealous cleaning lady), Nahide's husband fixed it himself that night right away. I would stay at this apartment again in a heartbeat. Thanks for the great memories, I miss Istanbul already. *Since the apartment is on the top floor, please be mindful you would have to walk up 4 flights of stairs to get to the penthouse. There is no elevator.

                        Everything was as good or better than promised in the listing! Amazing view from the terrace, the photos are accurate but even they can't do it justice, it's so beautiful. It was on the top (5th) floor, and no elevator, so be prepared for a bit of exercise, but it was definitely worth the effort. Located perfectly, just a block from the Istiklal, yet very quiet and peaceful due to location in residential and embassy area. Beyoglu is the best part of Istanbul: restaurants (Midpoint, Saray, and don't miss Kat 5), shopping, bars/clubs, and from here it's just a short walk to the funicular, then a walk or tram ride across the bridge to the major tourist sites and bazaars. The apartment was clean and very nicely furnished; we felt like we were staying in someone's home. The owner/manager is extremely friendly and knowledgeable about the area, lives just in the next building, and was always available if we needed help. I would recommend this or any of her other nearby properties, and look forward to visiting again soon!
