Charming and comfortable
Charming and comfortable
I stayed in this lovely apartment for one week and couldn't have been happier. It is simply and tastefully furnished, immaculately clean, and very quiet. The photos are accurate but in fact do not show some of the architectural details (ceiling molding, lovely french doors) that accentuate the charm of the place. I was also impressed with thoughtful touches such as an apartment/neighorhood guide, books on Istanbul and Turkey, and a transit card which can be charged at nearby Taksim Square. The location is excellent. It's about a 2 minute walk (if that) to Istiklal Caddesi. There is easy transport to the main sights from either end. You can also walk to them in about 30 minutes, though there are lots of great cafes, shops, and restaurants to divert you along the way. Idil and Murat always answered my emails promptly, and Idil even came by the night I left to make sure that the driver showed up. I hope to return again soon.

Very comfortable apartment in central Beyoglu neighborhood
Very comfortable apartment in central Beyoglu neighborhood
Overall we had a wonderful stay at Idil + Murat's apartment. Its spacious + comfortable layout was perfect for me, my husband and our little baby. We made use of the kitchen for dinners and breakfasts, and found it to suit our needs well. The dishwasher didn't work perfectly, but for our purposes hand-washing was not a problem. We used the clothes washer, and initially were disappointed that there was not a dryer, but found the hanging rack placed near the heater (at the back of the bedroom) to be effective + unobtrusive. We enjoyed the DVD player and reading on the couch in the living room, and our little one loved rolling around on the living room rug! The furnishings are simple but comfortable, + the photos accurate. The shower has great water pressure and is a good size (larger than some teeny-tiny showers we have encountered in Europe). Idil + Murat went out of their way to make sure we were comfortable, and took extra care to insure we had everything we needed, going so far as to be available in the middle of the night to confirm that our taxi had arrived and safely taken us to the airport. We were grateful for the crib and highchair they provided, and found the many thoughtful touches around the apartment (e.g. wipes for our baby, guidebook for local restaurants, bottled water in the fridge) to be quite welcomed. The only reason I rated our experience as 4 rather than 5 stars is because when we arrived the "wifi" that is advertised in the listing was not in fact a wireless router, but a 3G plug-in that had difficulty working with our Mac and could only be used with one device at a time (and not at all with our phones). This was initially a huge problem for us and the wifi connection at the corner cafe was not always consistent. Idil + Murat remedied this by ordering a router that arrived on day 2 of our 5 days in the apartment, and while not the fastest, worked well. The only other complaint I have of the apartment was the very strong smelling cleaning solution that they used throughout the apartment and was pervasive for the first couple days of our stay. It was difficult to open the windows and air out the apartment. The location of the apartment is excellent: on a quiet street, in the part of Beyoglu (Cukurcuma) that boasts antique shops + cafes, 2 min. walk to the popular pedestrian-only Istiklal Caddesi with shops + restaurants, 10 min. walk to the nearest tram stop, and 15 min. walk to the Galatasaray bridge (easy access to the old city).

My wife and I along with our 10 month old son had a wonderful time in Istanbul and the apartment was perfect for our needs. The location is great and the apartment is clean and spacious for a 1 bedroom. Idil and Murat were extremely helpful and went out of their way to make sure we were well taken care of. You are within walking distance of great restaurants and all the attractions of Istanbul. My only suggestion is that since there is no wi-fi, only a USB internet plug-in, bring a laptop instead of the iPad. Once again we had a great stay.

A Winter Wonderland ...Istanbul style!
Just wanted to give two thumbs up for this lovely apartment and great neighborhood! Spent a week (mid-january) with my son, visiting my daughter who is studying in Istanbul. The apartment is located in a terrific location...near Taksim Square. Easy to get the shuttle bus from the airport to Taksim, and walk to the apartment (5-7 mins). The apartment (1st floor!) is very comfortable..nicely furnished and beautifully appointed. I have stayed in many VRBO properties and this one ranks as one of the best! The owners were very prompt to all of our emails and we were met at the apartment at the agreed upon time and given a nice orientation to the neighborhood and apt. The building was quite, on a nice little street (police station at the top of the hill...so no need to worry about safety!) All in all, we'd recommend this apartment highly for anyone wishing to have it as a home base to see all the sights of this wonderful city. Central location, close to public transport made us very mobile to get anywhere we needed to go. You won't regret it if you choose to stay here!

A great discovery!!
A great discovery!!
A delightful apartment in a perfect location. Spent 8 days in "new" Istanbul. Was a very welcome respite after long days of sight-seeing in Old Istanbul- all w/in walking distance down the hill and over Galata Bridge. Metro very easy to use, if desired. End of the day, we would stop at nearby market for groceries, fresh produce. Variety of local cafes, bookstores, bakeries to enjoy as well as the wonderful Galatasaray Turkish Baths not more than a block away. Very quiet neighborhood - deceptive at first when we drove through busy, noisy Taksim Square upon our arrival. Cannot hear the clubs, traffic at all. However, Istanbul does wake up very early- can hear the neighbors getting ready for work, local street traffic - ear plugs are recommended for light sleepers. The sofabed is single-sized only, directly above street-fronted windows- fine for a child, but a cramped sleep for teens/older. The back room w/ queen is great- quiet w/ warm, cozy comforters. Terrific shower, hot water lasted through (3) adults. Nice amenities w/ hair dryer, dish-washer, washing machine. As w/ many apts in Europe, dryer not in this apartment, but room to spread out wet garments on drying rack. Owners Idil & Murat were exceptional-met us very late at night after a delayed flight and lost cabbie. Had Metro card to fill up (saved us steps waiting in line), guide books, maps - they were available for calls w/ additional questions. I wanted to know where to get those linens and names of clubs to send college student for music - received quick, thoughtful responses! I would go back and stay there in a heartbeat! So much more to explore in that wonderful city!!

My husband and I enjoyed the apartment when we visited Istanbul. The location was perfect, just a short walk off the wonderful and vibrant Istiklal Street. The apartment was well furnished, had a great ambiance and spacious enough for us. Loved it!! Also, our host Idil was lovely and answered all our questions before our trip and during our stay. If you are looking for a great apartment close to the pulse of the city, but yet a short walk away and quiet enough, this is the place. Thank you Idil and Murat for a wonderful stay.

My husband and I recently stayed here (July 2011). The best part was how helpful Idil and Murat were. They are extremely reliable and very willing to provide an orientation and met us when we came in to the city. The apartment was spotless and had nice amenities and a comfortable bed. This location is terrific if you want to be near a lot of places to eat and drink and still within striking distance of the Sultahamet via a furnicular and tram. It is a bustling neighborhood with lots of turks out and about. We followed a lot of the restaurant recommendations in the book that Idil provided and they were great. We have traveled a lot and have stayed in many large cites and found this spot to be just what we were looking for. It may not be a good location for those with mobility issues.

Dear Idil & Murat Thank you for everything! Your apt was perfect for us and out of all the places we stayed in while traveling around the world when I asked Rob if you could only go back to one of them where would you go? He didn't even have to think twice about it and neither did I it would be ISTANBUL. The reason is how friendly you were, ready to help us even at the last minute. Most people want to know their next step and thank god for text messages and email. We so appreciated that you answered all our questions with complete clear communication. Your apt was beautiful, it's truly in the heart of all the action, yet when we needed downtime it was soooo nice, clean, private, safe and quite. We loved it and hopefully will be back again someday. I would even send my kids there to vacation with complete confidence that they would be safe and having fun, lots of fun! Idil and Murat it was a pleasure meeting you both, a special thank you for Murat for picking us up at the bus stop and walking 10 minutes with us through the city to the apartment pointing out special places to eat, ect...providing us with lots of tourist info and making sure our every need was met. Please call us if you ever get to Oahu, HI MAHALO and ALOHA Rob & Judy

An amazing two weeks here
I just checked out today after spending two wonderful weeks here. I think the best thing was walking in the front door on the first day and realizing that the apartment is really as big as the pictures make it look. There is plenty of space for a couple to live comfortably. All of the appliances are brand new and the dish washer certainly helps for more lazy travelers. The location is UNBEATABLE.

The Galatasaray Hammam, adressing the centuries, have served many pashas, muslim judges ( kadi ), and grand viziers and have participated in the pure lifes of these people. Galatasaray Hammam, with the heritage of the past, is also modern, both in the quality of its services and the hospitality of its staff. The construction of Galatasaray Hammam stands on a mysterious story. When the Sultan Beyazit was wandering around the land where todays Galatasaray Lycee and the Galatasaray Hammam stands on now; he sees a hut. This hut belongs to Gul Baba, a respected man of his time. Sultan Beyazit meets this man and asks him "Gul Baba - do you have any wishes?" and Gul Baba wishes the the construction of a schoo...MoreCollapse
Listed at Guardian UK as one of the 10 of the best bars in Istanbul. Cukurcuma is a formerly neglected neighbourhood which has recently been swept up in Cihangir's breakneck gentrification. In some ways, Cukurcuma 49, a split-level former workshop of bare brick, glass and wood, seems to be the inevitable result of the new aesthetic, yet somehow it retains its own charm. Perhaps it's the thin-crust pizzas, made from fresh Turkish ingredients, or perhaps it's because it serves its own wine, bottled especially on the small Aegean island of Bozcaada. Either way, attention to detail triumphs over pretension....MoreCollapse
Listed at Guardian UK as one of the 10 best bars in Istanbul. Cafe Smyrna, a former antique shop, embodies leafy, literary Cihangir's laid-back, old-fashioned style: tables are shaded from the street by plants and awnings, and the bar is a jumble of furniture and standing lamps. Beloved of writers, thespians and the neighbourhood's foreign journalists and expats, Smyrna's outdoor tables, under the plane trees that line the streets, are a lovely place to while away an evening, drink in hand....MoreCollapse
Listed at Guardian UK as 10 of the best bars in Istanbul. Susam Sokak (Sesame Street) is one of Istanbul's most charming nooks, in the heart of the leafy, literary Cihangir neighbourhood, and this effortlessly friendly local cafe, which buzzes on weekend evenings, is a destination in itself. A mixed bunch of regulars – from local hipsters to foreign newspaper hacks – people the bar, sucking down good cocktails, such as its famous Egeli Mojito (Aegean Mojito), on mismatched furniture in the sitting room-like interior. Most, however, come to soak up the atmosphere on the cafe's street-side terrace....MoreCollapse
Listed at Guardian UK as 10 of the best bars in Istanbul. Urban is a fantastic bar-cum-cafe tucked away in a sidestreet between the Galatasaray Lisesi (high school) and Galatasaray hamam. In summer, tables spill out onto the street, covered by a �arşaf (a sun shade made of trellised vines and ivy) and are thronging with Beyoğlu's boho set, sipping on ice-cold Efes Pilsen. A rare patch of calm in the beating heart of Istanbul, it livens up as the sun sets. Winter brings people into the cosy, old-fashioned, faintly Parisian interior, with a mezzanine and bar – the perfect place to curl up with a book and while away the hours with a beer....MoreCollapse
Listed at Guardian Uk as 10 of the best bars in Istanbul. A restaurant by day, at night Munferit becomes one of Istanbul's chicest bars. It takes its design cues from the 1940s, with wooden panelling, tiled floors and mirrored walls – courtesy of local interior design superstars Autobahn. On balmy evenings, locals cluster around the tables in the discreet, private garden, just off the street, before repairing to the bar to dance until dawn to sets that range from old-school funk and soul to ambient techno and house. And, as the night wears on, Ferit the owner delivers round after round of free shots....MoreCollapse
Listed at Guardian UK as 10 of the best bars in Istanbul. With views stretching over Istanbul in all directions, as the name suggests, glamorous 360 is worth coming to for that alone. You certainly wouldn't come here for the food. Its "society shish kebab summer remix" turns out to be two sticks of meat presented at a jaunty angle, instead of in traditional parallel lines, and the rest of the menu really doesn't warrant the vertiginous prices. Instead of booking dinner, come here early, persuade the waiters to give you a coveted window seat, and sip your drink very slowly. Then source a proper bite to eat on the street below....MoreCollapse
Listed at Guardian as 10 of the best bars in Istanbul. The tall Ottoman buildings that line the streets of Beyoğlu have a tendency to block out the city's fantastic natural beauty. Climbing to Litera, the bar on the fifth floor of the Goethe Institute, however, lays the old city, the Asian side and the Bosphorus at your feet – glass walls and high tables with stools ensure that not an inch is obscured. Such views are all too rare and well worth rooting out. The institute below, meanwhile, offers one of the most varied cultural programmes in Istanbul, from theatre to photography and classical music....MoreCollapse
Listed at Guardian as 10 of the best kebab restaurant in Istanbul. Reservation is a must! This small restaurant, which serves the tasty food of southern Turkey's Hatay region, exudes cool without sacrificing flavour. Antiochia's meat dishes are simple, recognisable dishes, set to a higher frequency. Şiş et is a plate of marinated cubes of beef skewered and grilled over a charcoal fire. On any given evening in the Beyoğlu region, there must be thousands of skewers of şiş et coming off the grill, but none are quite as tender and succulent as at Antiochia. And the minced meat d�r�m (wrap) with onions and tomatoes is among the best in the city...MoreCollapse

It serves seriously good food, but without taking itself too seriously. The cosy restaurant is dominated by an ocakbasi a long hearth with a copper hood, where the meat is grilled over coals. It's a bit like Turkey's answer to the sushi bar, with a few seats grillside, where you can watch the chef do his thing. Their Adana kebab – spicy minced lamb – has just the right combination of meat, fat and red pepper. Chicken wings (kanat) and lamb chops (pirzola) are also superbly grilled. It's not easy to stand out in a city of kebab restaurants. Zubeyir does it%2...MoreCollapse
Listed at Guardian as 10 of the best modern art galleries in Istanbul. This huge former warehouse on the shores of the Bosphorus is the most prominent of Istanbul's contemporary galleries. It is arguably the reason why so many smaller spaces have sprung up in the neighbourhood, and the Biennale is held next door. A permanent exhibition takes visitors through a history of modern Turkish art and there are increasingly important international shows, such as portraitist Steve McCurry's photos from the last ever roll of Kodachrome film. But you sometimes have to wonder if the main attraction for many is really the restaurant, and its incredible view of the old city across the water....MoreCollapse

No other building in Istanbul can claim to sum up the city today quite like Misir Aparmani, a beautiful 19th-century apartment block presiding over Beyoğlu.

Over the past decade, Galerist has hosted fashion designer H�seyin �ağlayan's photography projects and stylish, hyper-realistic paintings by Taner Ceylan, among many others. You might not be challenged to think very much here, but it all looks very, well … cool....MoreCollapse
Listed at Guardian as 10 of the best modern art galleries in Istanbul. The main collection might consist of Orientalist paintings, old weights and Ottoman tiles, but modern art fans should keep an eye on the Pera's top-notch travelling exhibitions by the likes of Picasso, Botero and Chagal. You experience the shows from top to bottom, working your way downwards over several floors of bright, white, well-polished museum space. Opening nights bring out paparazzi and camera crews, and the regular screenings of classic foreign films have as much style, romance and class as the converted Victorian hotel building and its location, a stone's throw from the famous Pera Palace Hotel....MoreCollapse
Listed at Guardian as 10 of the best modern art galleries in Istanbul. It might strike you as strange that a bank would have its own cultural centre and arts-book publishing house, but such things are relatively normal in Turkey.

The gallery's two rooms usually host an odd but interesting balance of archaeology (text-heavy and educational) and photographic or contemporary art....MoreCollapse
Listed at Guardian UK as 10 of the best lokantas in Istanbul. The Black Sea area is Turkey's culinary misfit; it's not really about kebabs or mezes. If anything, the food seems to have been mysteriously transplanted from the American deep south, with cornbread, collard greens and smoky bean stews. It's simple, filling, down-home food, and Hayvore, a little restaurant in the Galatasaray area, is a great – and affordable – spot to get acquainted with it. Try the chickpeas in a glowing red gravy, meaty, stuffed chard leaves, large hunks of cornbread or the Black Sea anchovies (hamsi) lightly fried....MoreCollapse
Though Istanbul generally lacks foreign ethnic restaurants as we know them in other world cities, look closer at many lokantas and you'll discover links to kitchens well beyond the borders of Turkey. Ficcin is a friendly restaurant serving the unique cuisine of the mountains of the Caucasus. At lunch, this humble eatery's tables occupy nearly all of the street it is on, laying out Circassian specialities such as a cold chicken and walnut spread and hulking dumplings. Its namesake dish, ficcin, a Chechen b�rek, is a savoury, cake-like dough layered over fragrant ground meat and then baked like a pizza....MoreCollapse
Listed at Guardian UK as 10 of the best lokantas in Istanbul. This place started with the concept of a traditional esnaf lokantasi and added laid-back service and funky design and paying greater attention to the food. The result is a power lunch spot buzzing with bankers out for a bite. H�nkar beğendi, a leftover from the Ottoman imperial kitchen, is the star of the menu. Eggplants are charred on a charcoal grill, then peeled, mashed and thickened with milk and cheese. Over the top, tender morsels of slow-cooked lamb are drizzled with the red gravy they were stewed in. It's the beğendi experience that this place thrives on. At night, it turns into a taverna....MoreCollapse
Listed at Guardian UK as 10 of the best lokantas in Istanbul. The restaurant/cafe at the Istanbul Culinary Institute has become an institution since it opened in 2008. The idea is simple: let the students of the culinary school upstairs prepare food for the customers downstairs. The menu changes frequently depending on what is being taught, but it always features classics from the Turkish kitchen. It might sound like there's an element of risk in putting yourself in the hands of neophytes, but what comes out of the kitchen never disappoints. There's zero risk, meanwhile, when it comes to the interior – a stylish space fusing industrial cool with homely warmth....MoreCollapse
Listed at Guardian UK as 10 of the best lokantas in Istanbul. Lades is an old-school spot, a classic lokanta serving stews and steam-table favourites day in, day out. If Lades were a car, it might be an old Volvo estate – nothing exotic, but safe and extremely reliable. The menu changes daily but follows certain rules. As written on the front window, on Mondays and Thursdays the special is succulent ribbons of d�ner kebab served with rice. Tuesday is a day for arnavut ciğeri, lightly fried lamb's liver ramped up with red peppers. But day in, day out, just about everything at Lades – from the soups to the stews to the desserts – is dependably good....MoreCollapse
Listed at Guardian as 10 of the best fish restaurants in Istanbul. The only ambience at this slightly shabby meyhane is created by the smart locals who come to unwind over a meal and bottle of raki, often in excess. Though the menu is an afterthought for some, it's really all about the food at �ukur. That garlicky yoghurt loaded with celery root and purslane and drizzled with olive oil, is enough to ensure a return visit. Then there is the ciğer, or liver, sliced into strips, then lightly fried and dusted with red pepper. Most unusually, the folks at �ukur have figured out how to grill Black Sea anchovies, or hamsi, which are generally fried or baked....MoreCollapse
Doga Balik, with its distinctive cuisine, is a perfect venue for sea food fans. With its wide selection of fish and rarely found herbs, Doga Balik is an extraordinary fish restaurant.

Besides the dishes prepared with sea food, Doga Balik also offers various appetizers, cooked with 35 different herbs....MoreCollapse
From the outside, Furreyya Galata Balikcisi, a tiny restaurant in Beyoğlu's quaint Galata area, doesn't look like much. A few tables and stools at a short counter, a smoky grill and not much else.

Run by a friendly husband and wife team and located just a stone's throw from the 13th-century Galata Tower, the restaurant offers a great (and affordable) alternative to eating at one of Istanbul's fancier fish restaurants. Furreyya's excellent balik durum, a wrap filled with grilled fish and caramelised onions, is perfect....MoreCollapse
