Nahide purchased this apartment in 2013
My family and I spent four days in this lovely apartment. The hosts were wonderfully helpful and showed us around the neighborhood when we arrived. This apartment is clean, well organized and comfortable for a family of four. The best part, besides the unbelievable kindness of the hosts, is the beautiful view. We didn't experience a better view anywhere else. We would sit and eat breakfast for hours just to look out the window. I can't say thank you enough to the hosts. I would recommend this place in a heartbeat! The area is safe and close to a lot of important sites. A huge thank you to the hosts.
Our family of 5 really enjoyed our stay in this apartment. You are really right in the center of a lot of the sites to see in Istanbul. Nahide told us about some places to visit and restaurants that we would not have found on our own and were some of our highlights. It was also great to be in a neighbourhood and get to know some of the the shops and restaurants. As mentioned in other reviews you need to be able to clime a few flights of stairs, but the view from the apartment is wonderful. The atmosphere provided by the call to prayer from neighbouring mosques was all part of the experience of being in Istanbul. I would recommend this to any friends traveling to the area.
We spent a week in this apartment and **loved** having it as our home base while in Istanbul. Everything was perfect: the location, which is right off the Hippodrome, but in a quiet neighborhood that wasn't inundated with tourists and felt really safe (and conveniently had a market a half block away for bottled water and snacks, with a nice restaurant right above it for when we were too tired to venture far for dinner); the space, which is clean, modern, and just like in the pics (we used the full kitchen for quick breakfasts and found that the two bedrooms and a nice living area made relaxing at night so much easier); and the view - that was even better in person than in the pics. Plus, Nahide was a great host. She was helpful before our trip, including helping arrange transport to/from the airport for us. She went out of her way the first night we arrived to show us around the neighborhood. She even stocks the apartment with all sorts of guidebooks to the city and to Turkey. (Wish we'd known that before we packed a bajillion pounds of them in our suitcases to bring with us :-)
In short, we couldn't have picked a better place to stay for our vacation. The only "downside" worth mentioning, as a few reviewers already have, is that the apartment is several stories up. This shouldn't be a deterrence for most folks; the trade off for stairs is peace and quiet + a cool apartment and a great view! (Although I'd be lying if I said we didn't curse the stairs once or twice after coming home dog-tired after a day of walking Istanbul...) But anyone with knee/respiratory/whatever issues that would make flights of stairs difficult should be aware that you've got four of them between you and the apartment.
Even while we were in Istanbul, there were many nights when we got home and said how lucky we were to have found and booked this property. Now that we're back it's clear that being based there made the entire trip more enjoyable. I can't say the apartment made our vacation - Istanbul is too spectacular for an apartment to be the highlight! - but it really helped us feel at home and at ease in a foreign place.
Highly, highly, highly recommended.
The apartment was bright, well-furnished, very clean, comfortable, extremely well-located, and with a spectacular view of the Sea of Marmara and a beautiful, historic mosque. Staying there added immensely to our enjoyment of Istanbul. Nahide was a delight to work with, both during our trip planning and once we arrived in the city. She met us where and when we agreed on despite a several-hour delay in our arrival. She also provided a wealth of information about the apartment and the city, including good recommendations on where to eat. We also took advantage of her excellent and reliable driver for a trip to the airport early one morning. We'd highly recommend this property to anyone seeking an authentic experience of living in a fascinating city.
Nahide is great and so is her apartment. The experience was wonderful from reservation to airport pickup to check in and through out the visit. She spent time with us walking around the area upon arrival showing us all the sights and conveniences in the immediate area. I mentioned I forgot my stove top coffee maker and the next morning her Mom dropped one off. She was a phone call away for any questions.
The apartment was perfect. It is very tastefully decorated and quite large in comparison to other two bedrooms units. The view is wonderful too.
Thanks again Nahide. We had a great visit to Istanbul.
Really clean, spacious apartment. The location in the old quarter of Sultanahmet is perfect... Walking distance to all the major sites and tram line. The only suggestions are the common area (entrance and stairwell) are very dirty. It did appear there were some renovations going on such as new coat of paint, so maybe these issues are already being addressed. The owners are very friendly and we highly recommend using their airport pick-up and drop-off service. Thanks for a great visit!
The location is great! 150 meter to Sultanahmet Square, Blue Mosque! Hagia Sofia is 2 minutes by walking. In a family building. Safe street, many hotels are in there. This is one of the best street in Sultanahmet.
