Absolutely beautiful home, with the beautiful sea view and close to public transportation.
Me and my friends stayed 4 nights at this perfect appartments. We had a fabulous stay. The apartment is very centrally located in an awesome part of town. It was a great location and within walking distance of all the sites. The apartment was well equipped, clean and had everything we needed. The best part of apartment is a balcony with the beautiful sea view and great terrace on the roof. Yuksel was a brilliant host and nothing was a problem from booking transfers to helping with as with our language. Yuksel was there to meet us on our arrival, He showed us the property and answered any questions we had. Thank you to the very hospitable owner of this apartment . Would definitely stay again
Walk to Many of Istanbul's Famous Sites
The apartment is located on the Golden Horn in a great location. One day, we walked to the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia, Basilica Cistern, and Topkapi Palace. The next day, we walked to the Grand Bazaar, Sulemaniye Mosque, the Spice Bazaar, and the harbor from which Bosphorous boat tours department. The Cemberlitas tram stop is also just a few blocks away and the IstanbulKart is a great value and gives you the freedom to jump on pretty much any form of public transportation for a very reasonable ($1 or less in most cases) charge. The apartment is in a hilly neighborhood, and on the 4th floor, so some modest level of fitness helps, and there would be accessibility issues for someone who could not walk. There is a mosque about 150 meters away with an amplified speaker, so early morning prayers are likely to assure you start your day at the crack fo dawn (or a little earlier). There's a nice little neighborhood grocery literally 30 feet across the street where you can buy basic food items. The view of the Sea of Marmara from the 5th floor terrace is a great way to end the day. The owner/manager were very helpful in arranging transportation to/from the airports (both the new airport and Sabiha Gocken are about 25 miles away and not really reachable by public transportation, at least not in 2019 or spending hours of time to get there).
Right in the middle of things
Great location for visiting the sights, sounds, and tastes of old Istanbul. Clean and well appointed, the apartment had a great view of the ships coming and going on the sea of Marmara at the mouth of the Bosphorus. Very friendly and efficient contact with the owner.
Perfect Location, Beautiful Apartment
This apartment could not be better situated for seeing the historic district of Sultanahmet. You are only two or three blocks behind the Blue Mosque, a five minute walk to the Hagia Sophia. This apartment was perfect for our family of five.
When we arrived there was a bit of confusion as our reservation dates seemed to have been recorded for the following month, but the two managers fixed everything very quickly and ushered us into our apartment without any problems and many apologies. That was the only minor hiccup to our wonderful stay in this apartment. The apartment is in an old neighborhood (all the neighborhoods in Sultanahment are old - that's the point) but this building is very updated and modern. The apartment was spotless, the beds were very comfortable, and it was very well equipped.
After we arrived the manager brought us an Istanbulkart for riding public transportation. This was INVALUABLE! We figured out the trams very quickly, and with the card, we only needed to occasionally recharge it and we could go everywhere. He also offered us a local cell phone so we could make phone calls without needing to roam on an international plan. They had fresh fruit, water, a bit of food, and a bottle of wine for us in the apartment when we arrived. Wifi worked wonderfully and without problems. Ugur, the manager, also pulled out a tourist map and highlighted the popular attractions, informed us what days they were closed, showed us where a nearby grocery store was, and explained how to use the Istanbulkart.
The views from this apartment are truly spectacular, especially the rooftop terrace. Note that the call to prayer is very loud in the morning, but with the number of mosques, particularly in the historic district, there is nowhere you can go to avoid it entirely. Besides, it is part of the experience.
We also had the pleasure of eating at the owner's restaurant, Amedros Cafe, and it was very good. It was excellent food with Turkish flavors, but not the typical kebab, doner, pide, mix at all the tourist joints. I recommend it.
Overall, I would not hesitate to reserve the apartment again. I can't imagine a better location for being right in the middle of the historic district and a hotel doesn't provide all the amenities that this apartment does.

"We rent appartment for one week in June 2010.
Mehmet, the appartment manager gave us very good help every time we needed it.
The appartment is close to major attractions. (Almost everything can be reach by walking)
The appartment manager set up for us the transport from the airport.
The terrace above the appartment give a very very nice view over the sea and the sunset. We cooked three times our dinner and the kitchen had enough equipement to do so. The house keeper came regulary for the cleaning.
We recommend this appartment very much. We would definitely go back!
L'appartement est situé en plein coeur du quartier historique d'Istanbul, à distances de marche de toutes les attractions importantes. La vue de la terrace sur le toit est exceptionnelle. Des couchés de soleil fantastique...
L'air climatisé fonctionne bien, et la télévision aussi!
Enjoy your trip in Istanbul!"

The apartment was fabulous: Great location, brilliant views over the Marmara Sea, shopping and sights all withing walking distance, very clean (cleaning lady comes every other day), great facilities.
But most of all: A host who really knows how to makes his guests feel valued and comfortable. Yueksel went out of his way to make our stay in Istanbul a fabulous one and even put up with all our whims and special requests.
Make sure to also eat at Yueksels's restaurant, which serves delicious food and provides the most courteous service.
