We were happy with our room because it seemed to be the perfect location between Sultanahmet/the old city and Beyoglu/Taksim activities to the north. It is near Galata Tower and if you walk one direction, the Tophane tram stop is easy to reach. If you walk the other way, Tunel and Istiklal Street (also the Sishane metro stop) are not far. It seems to be the best of both worlds this way. I do have two minor gripes, however. We were supposed to be emailed a security code to get in since this is an apartment and not a hotel. There was actually someone there when we arrived, but I was worried that I would have a problem so I called and someone called me back with the code - while I was at the airport. It worked out, but it seemed to me to add unnecessary stress. The other complaint, which may have nothing to do with Lush Houses, is the trash which seemed to be omnipresent at the gate right next door. I was disappointed that I had to view it when coming and going. On the other hand, it was a very nice place to stay with conveniences that were very much appreciated: location, internet, refrigerator, washing machine, tv and even a nice free map of Beyoglu.

We stayed in the flat on the first floor for one week. One morning we didn't have hot water, but after a couple of calls, it was fixed. The kitchen was fully stocked with dishes and pans, but no tea, coffee, sugar, salt/pepper, etc. The bed was comfortable, and the sofa was fine for my adult son to sleep on. The living room window is into a courtyard where some work is being done on a neighboring building, so there was a bit of noise from that, but not anything objectionable. The washer/dryer are labeled in Turkish, but Google Goggles translated the settings. The clothes washer is in the kitchen, and the dryer is in the bathroom. It's a ventless dryer, so the tank had to be emptied a couple of times. If you aren't familiar with those, ask for a demo when you are let in. About the door, there's no key, so you get two five-digit codes to type into the keypad at the street , your flat door, and the roof-top terrace. The location is great: cute bar at the top of the street, tekel is around the corner, Istiklal is three blocks away uphill, and a tram stop is three blocks away downhill.
