Great condo in the price range, very close to the Taksim area. It is located in an area referred to as Jahangir which has a great reputation with many great coffee shops, bars and restaurants, physically 1 minute walk. Also, about 10 minutes walk to the Bosphorous/water area. The only drawback is that unit is located on the first floor in a two-split level. 2 bedrooms on the first floor and take a few steps down to kitchen and the cozy living room, a bit confining at times especially on rainy days. For the price, can not get a better deal, neighborhood is safe. Mr. Kadir and his assistant, Sianan, have great customer service and are very good and trustable people. Kadir's English is perfect and he is a great communicator. Sinan gives you great service in case any small issue come up, however, he does not speak any English. We will stay there again.
We loved staying away from the tourist crowds in this authentic Istanbul neighborhood close to bus transportation, groceries, and dining. The house is well appointed and comfortable with all of the expected amenities. There are three flights of stairs, but the view from the upper terrace of the Golden Horn was worth it. Ozkan met us when we arrived and told us all we needed to know about the neighborhood, transportation, and local sites. He also arranged airport transportation for us both coming and going. Thanks for this unique experience in Istanbul.
