  • This apartment works in Istanbul

    "This apartment served the four of us (2 couples) extremely well. Having rented vacation apartments/homes in Rome, Venice, San Francisco, New York, Honolulu and various other places in Canada and the U.S., we knew what we were seeking in the way of a vacation rental when we chose Istanbul as a destination. We were looking for a well located, spacious, light-filled, clean, comfortable, quiet apartment with a well equipped kitchen and good beds/bathrooms. We found all of these in the Sultan's Nest where we spent 3 weeks from mid October to early November, 2013. The apartment is near a busy and commercial shopping street, but is situated in a very quiet residential zone in an area mostly dedicated at the ground level to wholesale textile showrooms. We used Istanbul's highly efficient public transportation systems extensively during our stay and having the Osmanbey Metro station just a short 1.5 blocks from the apartment was perfect. Very good grocery shops were close by in the Pangalti area. We also frequented some good modern cuisine restaurants such as Den Cafe and Restaurant and Delicatessan, as well as more traditional restaurants, in the heart of fashionable Nisantasi only a few blocks from the apartment. We are reasonably fit adults ranging in age from 64 to 76. While we often felt winded when we reached our door, we soon came to view the 5 flights of stairs as a nice mini work out especially on those days when we came and went 2 or 3 times. The owner was easy to deal with from the beginning of our interactions all the way through to refunding our deposit. He was knowledgeable and all communication was very timely, polite, accommodating and helpful. We, as others before us, highly recommend The Sultan's Nest for a short or a longer-term stay."
