Great Sultanahmet location

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.
Owner's Response: Dear Kathy,

We got so glad that you had a wonderful time and we were able to serve this also. And thanks for your nice comments and the time you have taken to write them. You are so kind.

Wish you & your beloved the best...

Mete & Ozlem

I second what Rod O. says below

  • Submitted: Apr 4, 2013

I was going to write a detailed review but I just read Rod O.'s review below and he sums it up perfectly. We also had airport pickup as well as a transfer later to a different hotel (conference for hubby). Both were flawless and fairly priced. Kubilay was there both times to help us with our bags which was super helpful due to the stairs. (Apartment is on the third (?) floor so if you can't do stairs reconsider, but it is an EASY climb.) We were there in March so didn't make use of the aircon so can't comment on that. Everything else was fine. GREAT location (cut through the Arasta bazaar to shave off some time/distance to Blue Mosque. I agree with Rod, perfect for 2, 4 (unless it's kids) would be a bit tight.

5 stars for what it is. Great value, super location, comfortable and quiet (other than the prayers which we enjoyed).

A great find in Sultanahmet

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Istanbul, not least due to our accommodation. Mete and Ozlem's apartment is perfectly located, on a quiet street but less than five minutes from the Blue Mosque, Agia Sofya and the Bosphorus. There are also dozens of restaurants to choose from within a short stroll. The apartment is small, but quite adequately sized for a couple (two more could be accommodated on the sofa-bed in the living room, but I think that would be a bit of a squash).

The apartment has obviously been renovated and refurnished in the fairly recent past - mostly from Ikea I'd say, and nothing wrong with that! Everything was spotlessly clean on arrival. The living room has a large TV with DVD and satellite, although the only English-language channel is Al-Jazeera news. We didn't come to Istanbul to watch telly, so that wasn't an issue for us. More importantly, there's a reliable and reasonably fast Wifi signal.

The bedroom is small - it has a double bed and wardrobe, and no room for much else. Reading lamps on both sides of the bed, which is always useful. The kitchen is well equipped; no oven, but microwave, dishwasher, washing machine and hob, plus an adequate supply of cutlery and crockery. Lots of cleaning stuff under the sink, although some cleaning cloths for wiping down surfaces etc. would have helped.

The bathroom is a wet room, with an OK shower (not the strongest water pressure, but adequate and temperature controls worked well). Outside is a nice little terrace, with views of the Bosphorus to the right and the minarets of the Blue Mosque to the left, and a plastic table and chairs for al fresco eating and drinking.

We never met the owners, but on the phone and (before our arrival) via email they seemed pleasant and helpful. They arranged our transfers from and to the airport (60TL each way - a bit more than a taxi but a lot more comfortable and convenient) which was in a large people-mover, with very pleasant driver who also let us in and showed us round the apartment on arrival.

If you're looking for luxury then this apartment isn't for you, but it's clean and comfortable, and for location and value for money I doubt there's anything better to be found in Istanbul for a short stay.
Owner's Response: Rod, thanks so much for your precious comments and your time you took to write them down thoroughly.

I am glad that we have made you happy during your stay. And please know that we will take measures to improve our guests' experience in the light of your comments. Our guests' comments are invaluable.

Again, thanks and have a safe flight back home.

Regards,
Mete

What a Find! An Istanbul hideaway.

We are leaving this apartment after a week of pure pleasure. The apartment is spotlessly clean, all new windows, appliances, furniture, etc., make it a pleasure. It is VERY simple, but fine. Our pick up from the airport was flawless - even at 2 AM! Everything works perfectly and the views are stunning. Just two blocks away is a trendy, bustling neighborhood full of restaurants, shops, etc., but the apartment is VERY quiet and feels remote, safe and private. Major monuments a stroll away.

The little shop on the corner has essentials and is convenient.
It is a third-floor walk-up, but do-able if you are at all fit. We are 66 and 71 and had no trouble. The place next door to the shop, Yume, will arrange tours. Remzi is charming, has great English, and knows his stuff.

Owner and manager are WONDERFUL, responsive and helpful - even though we stupidly locked ourselves out on the balcony and they had to bring a locksmith. They were lovely about it.

Wifi is spectacularly good. Remist restaurant - at the end of our street past all the other restaurants, is really good, inexpensive and has a nice vibe.

Highly recommended. You will LOVE Turkey!

The best place to stay in Istanbul

Mete's apartment is right in the heart of the Sultanahmet, with a rooftop terrace giving views of the Sea of Marmera in one direction and the Blue Mosque in the other, the call to prayer from the Blue Mosque is really beautiful to listen to. Over the road is a small convenience store for beer and groceries, and just around the corner are a hundred restaurants with pavement seating. We are a retired couple who have just spent 2 great weeks in the apartment and enjoyed it immensely.


Althoughwe did not meet Mete we found him to be more than helpful with information and calling reliable cabs.

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.
