Great flat, clean, cosy and very silent, despite its location 100 meters (really!) from the Blue Mosque and Saint Sophia. I would highly reccomend it, even for 5 people. Some nice extras: great the terrace with the table to have breakfast or dinner, great the washing machine, to wash and dry your clothes after your trip.
Our experience at this apartment was great! We are a family of 4, there was plenty of room, wi fi, laundry, oven ,refri,well equipped; only 1 block away from Blue Mosque and 2 blocks from Haya Sofia, several good restaurants nearby, only 50 yards away from main entrance to a 5 star 4 seasons hotel, next door to municipal tourist police. We felt very safe the 3 days we expent there. My airplain was late 1 hr; plus our luggage was late another 2 hrs; Marco and Elif ( Local managers) were very kind and friendly to stay contacted over phone and awaited for me 3 hrs at the apartment. Highly recommended ! Thanks Fernando Negre
The flat was easy to find and it is really close to the hagia sophia and the blue mosque.
Because of the restaurantes around there is always a certain acoustic level, but never mind.
I didn't have a problem with it and I had my window opened all night long..
My friend who slept in the other room did mind, because in the backyard there were birds chirping all night.
There is just one thing that I didn't like about the flat: It smelled very fusty - like it hasn't been aired for ages - the bed linen were a bit clammy because of that.
But that is just a small note.
It is a good place to stay for a few days.
What a neighborhood feel. much more personality than any boring hotel room. All modern conveniences. Host was exceptional, thank you Marco. Traveled with 3 children 8-12 years of age. My 12 year old says bring ear plugs, but by the second day he was sleeping right through the competing calls to prayer from the various mosques nearby. Plenty of shops and restaurants within walking distance. The Four Seasons is literally around the corner and "if you fancy a spot of tea", well I guess that'll do. Metro stop is an easy 3 block walk. Very clean.
We stayed a week, and really loved this apartment. The location is perfect---we could go out and tour the city, then return to the apartment for a break, before going out again in the late afternoon. Steps to the Arasta Bazaar, the Blue Mosques, Hagia Sophia, easy access to the tram for trips further afield. We enjoyed sitting outside in the afternoon, drinking tea, reading books, and relaxing. The apartment was comfortable and clean, all the basics that we needed were provided. We also paid extra for pickup service from and to the airport---well worth it, haggling with taxi drivers is a bit difficult with only rudimentary Turkish! We plan to visit again, and will try to get the same apartment.
My husband & I spent a week here recently and were surprised by how much more comfortable we were in the apartment rather than a hotel. The pictures are absolutely accurate- the apartment is spacious and makes a good home-away-from-home. The area didn't have as much to do at night after dinner so we loved being able to curl up on the couch and watch a movie with tea made in our kitchen. It is an active neighborhood and we were occasionally awakened by street noise; I believe they offer an apartment on a higher floor of the same building that may be better for light sleepers.
While the apartment itself is wonderful, the location was our favorite part. It's less than a 5 minute walk to the Blue Mosque or Hagia Sophia and less than 10 to the nearest tram stop. We found it very easy to see much of the city with such a convenient base. We did have some difficulty finding the apartment as most buildings have two addresses, so if you can't see the Blue Mosque you've gone too far from it. It was much closer than we realized, and the pictures showing the Mosque really are the same great view you'll have from the bedroom (absolutely stunning!) We had no issues from the moment we arrived until we left the following week, and it was great knowing that Elif was just a phone call away if anything did come up.
Thank you for a great week in an incredible city! We hope to return someday and look forward to visiting your properties in other cities too!
