What a pleasure to stay in such a comfortable flat in such a choice location...a rare find that

I would recommend to anyone visiting Istanbul.

The flat was comfortable, functional and best of all a few steps away from the sights of

Istanbul including the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia, Topaki Palace as well as the cisterns....

great flat in Istanbul

  • 5 of 5

Great flat, clean, cosy and very silent, despite its location 100 meters (really!) from the Blue Mosque and Saint Sophia. I would highly reccomend it, even for 5 people. Some nice extras: great the terrace with the table to have breakfast or dinner, great the washing machine, to wash and dry your clothes after your trip.

outstanding

  • 5 of 5

Our experience at this apartment was great! We are a family of 4, there was plenty of room, wi fi, laundry, oven ,refri,well equipped; only 1 block away from Blue Mosque and 2 blocks from Haya Sofia, several good restaurants nearby, only 50 yards away from main entrance to a 5 star 4 seasons hotel, next door to municipal tourist police. We felt very safe the 3 days we expent there. My airplain was late 1 hr; plus our luggage was late another 2 hrs; Marco and Elif ( Local managers) were very kind and friendly to stay contacted over phone and awaited for me 3 hrs at the apartment. Highly recommended ! Thanks Fernando Negre

Good place to stay for a short visit

  • 4 of 5

The flat was easy to find and it is really close to the hagia sophia and the blue mosque.

Because of the restaurantes around there is always a certain acoustic level, but never mind.

I didn't have a problem with it and I had my window opened all night long..

My friend who slept in the other room did mind, because in the backyard there were birds chirping all night.

There is just one thing that I didn't like about the flat: It smelled very fusty - like it hasn't been aired for ages - the bed linen were a bit clammy because of that.

But that is just a small note.

It is a good place to stay for a few days.

Couldn't have asked for anything more.

  • 5 of 5

What a neighborhood feel. much more personality than any boring hotel room. All modern conveniences. Host was exceptional, thank you Marco. Traveled with 3 children 8-12 years of age. My 12 year old says bring ear plugs, but by the second day he was sleeping right through the competing calls to prayer from the various mosques nearby. Plenty of shops and restaurants within walking distance. The Four Seasons is literally around the corner and "if you fancy a spot of tea", well I guess that'll do. Metro stop is an easy 3 block walk. Very clean.

Family with two small children

  • 5 of 5

We stayed a week, and really loved this apartment. The location is perfect---we could go out and tour the city, then return to the apartment for a break, before going out again in the late afternoon. Steps to the Arasta Bazaar, the Blue Mosques, Hagia Sophia, easy access to the tram for trips further afield. We enjoyed sitting outside in the afternoon, drinking tea, reading books, and relaxing. The apartment was comfortable and clean, all the basics that we needed were provided. We also paid extra for pickup service from and to the airport---well worth it, haggling with taxi drivers is a bit difficult with only rudimentary Turkish! We plan to visit again, and will try to get the same apartment.
