Awesome Apartment in the Heart of Sultanhaymet!

  • 5 of 5
Very clean, convenient apartment located a stones throw from Hagia Sophia, The Blue Mosque, Hippodrome, etc. My wife and I with our three kids and Grandmother, were very comfortable and had a great time. Yes, you can hear to hear the call to prayer at 5:30 each morning, but my wife and kids slept through it after the first day, and besides, it is really cool way to wake up. A great reminder you are in a wonderfully exotic land full of friendly people wanting to share their amazing history and culture with you. Marco, Lauren, Fernando and the rest of the Negre Team are wonderfully helpful and made the experience an easy one. If your're thinking Istanbul, this should be at the top of your short list.

Nice Apartment near Blue Mosque

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at the Ogul Apartment during the last week of November. Here are my comments. first, the apartment itself: The apartment has three bedrooms and can accommodate seven people comfortably. Having a full size kitchen is great, especially for families with kids. The two balconies are a nice plus, though we did not use them, I’m sure it’ll wonderful to have breakfast there during summer. Everything was there to get us started, and anything that we needed were available in the nearby stores. One word of caution, it took us a while to figure out how to work the washer/dryer, so have Marco/Elif explain it to avoid any confusions later.

Second, the location and neighborhood: the apartment is within walking distance from many major attractions and the Sultanahmet tram station. Except for the airport, we walked everywhere or used public transportation. There are also a number of restaurants, shops and stores within few minutes from the apartment. We found the neighborhood and the people to be very friendly and helpful, and always felt safe walking home, even late at night.

Third, the owners/managers: this is my first trip to Istanbul, so I was a little apprehensive (renting an apartment, as opposed to hotel, etc.). It was a pleasure dealing with Lauren and Fernando, I asked a lot of questions, and they patiently answered every single one of them. Marco & Elif (Istanbul manager) was also very helpful and made sure we had a pleasant stay.

Overall, nice apartment, great location, professional and helpful owner/manager. Five star, highly recommend it.

Two-week Stay, and 2013 Marathon

  • 5 of 5
We were three couples spending two weeks in this apartment in November. We had a great time in Istanbul and in this Sultanahmet neighborhood. The apartment is comfortable and adequately furnished. The bedrooms are comfortable for sleeping and the kitchen is furnished for whatever meals one wishes to prepare.

The streets nearby are safe and friendly. This was once a residential neighborhood but today is much more one serving tourists. Old townhouses have become small boutique hotels, and other buildings are tourist apartments. The streets are full of restaurants, travel offices and various gift shops. We made friends with a small grocer about three blocks away, stopping for something at least once a day.

The location is off a main street and within easy walking distance of the major Sultanahmet sites, including the Sultanahmet tram stop. It is also easy to find a taxi in the street.

One of us left her camera in the apartment and asked the agent to ship it to her in the US. He was very accommodating, shopping with three carriers to find the best price, and it arrived safely in a little over two weeks.

Spent 12 days there for my 65th birthday. Wonderful apartment, great area & Amazing City. Never felt unsafe. When my husband & I were there alone when son & friends did some touring around we were
safe & comfortable. Can see the one of the spires of Blue Mosque from kitchen window. Sit on small deck off large bedroom & see small store, the young may working offered to carry the 5liter bottles of water home for me. Perfect, clean , safe, loved the apartment. Adored Istanbul. It's a Win Win!! : )

Istanbul Sights and a Marathon

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in this wonderful apartment during the Istanbul Marathon weekend this November. There were 6 adults and the apartment was just perfect in size, quality and most of all position. The transfer arranged by minibus was seamless and well worth it - you would pay a similar cost for 6 using the airport shuttle from the travel agent opposite but without the convenience. There are good bakers ( Borek for lunch ) and small mini-markets close by and a tailor/cleaners under the apartment who will do alterations to you newly purchased trousers for only 10 lira! The apartment is even better than the photographs suggest and its position below the Blue Mosque fantastic for the main sites and the Sea of Marmara cafes along the sea front. The bedrooms are a good size and the beds very comfortable - even after a 42km marathon we understand from our son! Trams stop at Sultanahmet 10 minutes away but the city is so walkable for the main sights from here. We would recommend the little Hagia Sophia down the hill 5 minutes away as one of the gems plus of course the main mosques close by. You can walk to the Spice bazaar and Grand Bazaar in 20 minutes from here and the Galata Bridge only 10 miutes further. Do not miss the Rustem pasha mosque - if you can find it near the Spice Bazaar. All together a brilliant place to stay and a lovely company to deal with. We will be back as soon as possible. Finally for anyone interested - the Istanbul marathon was fantastic!

This was a great place to stay. The outside was intimidating at first but the interior was wonderful. Our group was 3 couples and the 3 seperate bedrooms plus the two baths were enough to make us all comfortable. The livingroom was spacious enough to give us a communal meeting area. The kitchen was well equipped. Everything was in walking distance. Recommend it highly.
