Guestbook comments from the owner

Hello Mete,



We had a very enjoyable stay in your flat. We were quite comfortable there and with the neighborhood. Seems everything we wanted to explore was close by and we had fun exploring. I also enjoyed the terrace area, I was out there each morning enjoying the view.



As far as your service goes you went beyond our expectations and are very happy with everything you had done and provided making our stay in Istanbul very enjoyable. I would recommend your flat to anyone that is staying in the area.



Sincerely,
Feb 2015

Great vacation in terrific city

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is exactly as advertised. The location is great with lots of friendly neighbors that were very helpful. We had Mete arrange an airport pickup which worked perfectly and was well worth the money. It worked so well that we had him arrange the return trip to the airport too.

We experienced a small problem with the front door lock. I called to report the problem and help arrived within 30 minutes and the problem was resolved. Sometimes problems just happen. What's really important is how the problem is resolved! I'm happy to report that this incident was resolved as quickly as it could have been without any undo inconvenience to us.

Excellent central location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this lovely apartment for a month, choosing it over a hotel for its more comfortable atmosphere. The location was within a five minute walk of the Blue Mosque, the Ayosofia, and Topkapi Palace, as well as many restaurants and public transportation. Mete and his staff were quite attentive and responsive to all of our questions and needs. We would not hesitate to recommend this apartment to other travelers.

Well located

  • 4 of 5

Small yet nicely renovated apartment. Location is fantastic- close to shops, restaurants (rumist cafe recommended) and all main attractions (blue mosque etc).

The airport transfer was excellent and the manager (Kubilay) was great - even coming out late at night when we had issues opening the door (lock got jammed).

The only negative was the wet bathroom (shower and toilet together). This causes the whole bathroom to become wet during a shower.. Takes a while to get used to! Also the roof is quite low in some sections if you are 6ft+

All in all.. We had a enjoyable stay. Istanbul is a fantastic city!

Owner's Response: Dear Chanusha, Thanks for your review, we really appreciate it. 4 stars seems fine, giving us a feeling that we were somehow able to offer you an enjoyable experience in the historic old town. On the other hand, 4 star also indicates there are things to improve and thanks for pointing those out, we really respond to them quickly. We are in progress to fix the issue with the bath and future guests will not experience this inconvenience. As for the ceiling, you are right, just one part of the room is low. Since it is an old building, we do not want to change it much to preserve its originality & authenticity. I am 6.2" and it hardly bothers me once I get used to it during my stays. You are the first one to point that out among our guests, so, till today, I assumed that it is not really an inconvenience. I will pinpoint that issue for my future guests, so they do not experience any dissatisfaction. Wish you & your beloved the best... Mete

Well located apartment, some quibbles

  • 3 of 5

The apartment is very well located, which is really great.

The electric lighting in the living was rather poor, just one light, which did not do a very good job. The dining table was in the shadows.

The curtain in the bedroom lets through a lot of light, so those of us who are sensitive to light are garanteed to wake up rather early.

Kitchen equipment was only so so. For real cooking a bit primitive, but probably many won’t mind and eat out in one of the many restaurants in the neighbourhood all the time.

Owner's Response: Dear Bert, Thank you very much indeed, for those valuable comments. Guest views are of utmost importance for our business. The reviews are rare, so they are so precious for us. Once you get one, you take have to take it seriously. We constantly use these reviews for enhancing the experiences of our guests. Our flat is a modest one, we are well aware of that and it is accordingly modestly priced. Stemming from that, we aimed to target the guests who are willing to get this modest experience in the historic centre. We always try to indicate the status of our flat in the most correct way at homeaway.com, so they exactly know what they should expect. We strive to do that by using all means. We also always encourage our guests to indicate their expectations beforehand, so that we may take measures to meet their expectations. Among many reviews that we got for many years of our service, we are used to getting five star ratings. This is our first three star rating. Therefore we will take it extra seriously and take extra measures to prevent such occurrences. From the guests that decide that we are worth five stars, it is very hard and sometimes impossible to extract the issues that you have pinpointed, since their judgmental look at the flat is curtained by their satisfaction, although we take every opportunity to ask for those issues. Summarizing... Thanks again Bert, for this judgmental view on our flat. We really appreciate it. These will, hopefully, help us to continue on with our five stars. A blackout curtain and dimmable adjustable strong lighting will be our first priorities. If you have our observations/comments, you are more than welcome to indicate. I would also like to take the chance to wish you & your family more happy holidays. Regards, Mete

Appartement parfaitement bien situé

  • 4 of 5

Situe au cœur de la ville historique. Bien équipe dans un quartier tranquille près de restaurants et à quelques pas des mosquées Sainte-Sophie et Bleue. Accueil chaleureux et grande disponibilité des hôtes. Peu d épicerie dans le quartier.

Parfait pour un couple. Incroyable vue de la terrasse privée sur le toit.

Great Sultanahmet location

  • 5 of 5

Renting this apartment in Istanbul was our first experience with a “vacation rental”. Although small, it was in a great location, just at the western end of the “restaurant row” on Akbiyik Caddesi below the Blue Mosque. (The Sultanahmet Camii, if you have been to Istanbul before.) The apartment has a great view from its fairly large terrace with the Bosphorus/Sea of Marmara in one direction and the Blue Mosque in the other (or at least the top of it). A bonus was that it was a short walk to the Armada Hotel, which has a fantastic view terrace and a great breakfast buffet for only 25 lira. We were there at the end of July and the A/C kept us cool and comfortable. The driver met us at the airport exactly on time, showed us around the apartment and gave us the keys. He was so reliable we arranged for him to pick us up and drive us on several occasions. Ozlem and Mete were very helpful with information. Knowing we were going to be in Ayvalik, they even referred us to a great little restaurant on the Island of Cunda called the "Ayna" Restaurant. The freshest, most perfectly cooked sea bass we have ever had.

Istanbul is a charming city where one can find history, tradition and luxury altogether.

It is the place where you will want to immerse yourself and get lost in its streets. It is a place where two continents meet, so be ready to enjoy a great diversity...

Fine cuisine is easily accessible with a broad range of wines. You also have shopping options for handcrafted goods in ancient bazaars. As for the nightlife, you will always be referred to Beyoglu and Pera, which houses very chic bars and intrigue restaurants embracing a vibrant crowd, enjoying the beautiful life of Istanbul till late.

Istanbul is a city of both Europe and Asia, divided by the beautiful Bosphorus. It is becoming a trendy must-see, where traces of Ottoman Empire and other cultures can be witnessed.

Sultanahmet is the major historic center, where our flat is located. Most tourists find themselves in Sultanahmet, the old town and the historic peninsula, which contains the historical treasures of the city.
