About Erinc

I am an industrial engineer, born and grew up in Istanbul.

We are hosting our guests with my highschool mate. We are enjoying getting to know new people and try to make it easier for them to discover this beautiful city!

Erinc purchased this apartment in 2012

What makes this apartment unique

Just couple of steps away from Istiklal Street, but on a quiet neighborhood. Renovated, old nice building.

I am in love with my city, so I want my guests to enjoy it as much as possible. I will give you a discounted public transportation card with your keys and get main attractions' tickets before, so you do not wait in line even in high season in Istanbul!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Erinc was a great host. He was helpful and gave us great tips about the city. The discount travel pass and wifi were great details. The appartment is nice and clean and the location is perfect in a nice area and very close to the tram. I really recommend staying at this appartment overall. Very good value for your money! Thanks for being a great host!

Pleasant Stay

  • 5 of 5

Clean and modern apartment in a central but quiet neighbourhood. Erinc was super helpful and responsive. He provided restaurant suggestions, a public transport card (with a better rate) local maps and even held our luggage all day after we "checked out." The apartment is close to tons of attractions, bars and cafes and is a 4min walk to the metro. We had a fantastic visit to Istanbul and will definitely stay at his apartment in the future!

Nice apartment in very good condition

  • 5 of 5

Erinc is a very nice and helpful person who communicated professionally with us regarding everything concerning our trip from the airport to the beautiful flat. It is located in a quite street very close to a lively neighbourhood. The rooms are very clean, comfortable and cosy and of course: when we go back to Istanbul we will stay there again!

Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is truly great! It's newly renovated, fresh, cozy (bright with big windows which we loved) and it's location is great, close to all the transportations such as tram, ferryboats to the Asian-side etc. It's located in a great central area, close to many restaurants, bars etc. as well as art-galleries and Istanbul Modern. There are also some cheap, good supermarkets in the area, close to the apartment. (And try out "Burger Lab" very close to the apt., one of the best burgers ever! Thanks Erinc! :) Erinc is a super-great host! He was supportive and very helpful with everything. He gave my family new Istanbul-card as well as spare-keys etc. etc. I can truly recommend this apartment to anyone that wishes a pleasant stay in Istanbul. If you're looking for a magic apartment as well as location - it's this one. Thanks for everything Erinc!

Great value for a great location

  • 5 of 5

Erinc's apartment was great, we had a very nice stay there. It is very clean and practical. But more importantly, the location is very good, it is the perfect compromise between being at the center of where things are going on and enjoying a calm neighborhood: you're 5min away from Galata or Sishane, 2min away from the tramway etc. but don't suffer the noise when it comes to sleep (which can be a problem elsewhere in Beyoglu). Also, Erinc is a great host, very easy to communicate with, and even though we checked-in really late at night, everything went smoothly. He provided us very useful information and advice, before and during our stay: he sent us a document right after booking with all the information we needed (location, transportation etc.) which is a great idea. He also helped us booking a cab to go back to the airport, and providing us a mobile 3G-wifi device for a very affordable price that was so helpful during our stay, being able to look for restaurants, itineraries, or any touristic information whenever we needed.

Very Pleasant

  • 5 of 5

Baris was very helpful and sent us a detailed info on how to reach his apartment. Everything was as we expected. The apartment was very clean, it is in the center of the famous istiklal street but still quiet so you are able to find some sleep at night. Baris responded qucikly whenever we wrote him or had any questions. Thank you very much for the good restaurant tips, we really enjoyed them. We highly recommend staying at Baris place and we will definitely come back on our next Istanbul trip! Gülcin and Julian.

A fantastic place to stay !

  • 5 of 5

We loved the apartment and Erinc, the owner, was of great help. You are just a few steps from Istiklal Street yet the area is quiet. Istiklal St. is like Barcelona's Las Ramblas on steroids!!! It is also very easy to get to the old city and its sights (walk or tram) but in this area it is much less touristy...you feel like you are experiencing Istanbul like a local. Right on the same street of the apartment close to Istiklal is a fantastic and well known meze (small tapas like dishes) restaurant. There are 2 small grocery stores very close by (including Turkish wine!...cheap and so-so but who cares?) and endless restaurant choices nearby (think side streets for the restaurants). We did a half day walking tour of Istiklal that was great! Our guide knew all the shopowners and she showed up places we would not find on our own. We also did an organized group day tour of the main sites in the old city...they picked us up at the apartment too (actually close by). The apt. is very nice and the AC and WiFi worked great! No microwave but we survived. :-) One final point...we debated staying here or the old city....we saw the old city and it was nice but very very touristy...not sure the restaurants are as authentic or as cheap...so we made the right choice staying here and like I said it's very easy to get to the old town sites. For example to get to the grand bazaar, you walk downhill to the tram stop (5 minutes), take the tram 3-4 stops and you are there! make sure to take the Tunel (underground funicular) on the way back...right at the base of the Galatta Bridge...and you end up at the top and walk out on Istiklal a 5 minute walk from the apartment. As I am writing this I am dreaming of all the Kebabs I ate and loved!
