7 of us including 3 elderly parents shared this apartment for 5 nights.
A lovely spacious & well-furnished apartment with 3 large, comfortable air-conditioned bedrooms, accessed by two doors and quite a flight of stairs from the pavement! - difficult for some but quite safe and secure!
There wasn't much storage space for hanging up clothes, only one reasonably-sized wardrobe in the front bedroom but we were there for my son's wedding, so suits and dresses were hung on a grand old 'dresser' in the hallway! (Half-size table-top ironing board not particularly good)
Only one shower room/w.c. and another w.c. behind the kitchen (they are not bathrooms!) proved to be insufficient for our group. A narrow kitchen with a big fridge/freezer and a great view of the Blue Mosque...but no oven, only a microwave oven. The kitchen has little worktop space so it is only suitable for preparing breakfast/light meals.
Having said that, we were well-catered for outside - Akbiyik Caddessi is a dreamworld of laid-back teahouses & bars, restaurants & hotels! Two food shops & taxi/mini coach hire shops provided us with everything we needed.
We were only five to ten minutes walk away from bazaars, shops & restaurants. The train station and the coast are so near - it was perfectly located!
Marco responded promptly to all my e-mails and Elif was always available by phone - if we needed help - but everything, including the wedding went wonderfully well.
We would love to return again some day and we have no hesitation in recommending this apartment!
