“Excellent place in the modern centre of Istanbul”
The service rendered was perfect, including the service to pick us up at the airport and to bring us directly to the apartment in the late evening. The house was warm and cosy and al you need for a fine stay was available. Locotion was perfect, in the neighbourhood of Taksim, Bosporus and public transport. Recommandable!!.And nice weather for the beginning of november!
“Comfort in an Istanbul Neighborhood”
My wife and I stayed in Idil and Murat's Cihangir apartment and loved everything about the neighborhood and Istanbul. The apartment is perfectly situated - outside of the touristed areas of Sultanahmet and Taksim but very convenient to transportation that will take you there easily. Idil helped us negotiate the trip from the airport and met us at the apartment which is close to a small food market and fruit and vegetable stand. The apartment is very comfortable and Idil has thought of everything - a full kitchen, washer/dryer, well organized space so you don't get that closed in feeling of a hotel room. As great as the apartment is, the neighborhood is also delightful. After a day of negotiating the crowds on the other side of the Galata Bridge, it was nice to come back to the relative quiet of Cihangir in the evening. After sampling the delicious and varied choices of restaurants close by, we liked walking the hilly neighborhood although there are plenty of taxis in Istanbul. We found street cafes for people watching as well as beautiful night views across the Bosphorus to the Old City. The apartment is also close to the Istanbul Modern and within a short walk to the Dolmabahce Palace near the ferries at Kabatas. I can not stress enough how convenient public transportation is in Istanbul and Idil provided us with an akbil fob which we loaded up for quick access to ferries, buses, the tram and metro. Idil was always available by phone for questions and from the start she made us feel like we had a friend in Istanbul. Great choice for our Istanbul trip.
“Home away from Home”
We've enjoyed the extra ordinary care from our host, Idyl. The apartment completely filled our needs. She had given attention to many details beyond the call of duty, eg. places to eat, where to shop for food, how to get around, some customs as visitors usefull to observe. The location was close to the tram allowing easy access to all the major sites in Istanbul. It was a short walk to Taksim Square and the shopping boulevard. We would love to stay there again.
“Oneapartistanbul - go for it!”
I spent 4 wonderful weeks in Idyl's cosy, immaculate appartment in Cihangir.It is a cute, comfortable place, tastefully furnished and ideally situated:10 minutes walk to Taksim Sq;, 5 minutes to Bosporus shore, plenty of nice restaurants and bars in the neighbourhood.And - last not least - Idyl is the perfect host, friendly and welcoming.
“Great Stay - Great Value!”
We spent 6 nights in the apart and had a great stay. It is in one of the best locations in the city, with only a short stroll to some of the best restaurants, shops, and public transportation (both ferry and train). The apart itself was clean, spacious, and had all the amenities to make you feel right at home. It can be a bit noisy though if you are not used to city living. Idil and Murat are warm and friendly and great hosts willing to assist with any extra details. We particularly liked all the additional travel books, maps, guides, and resources they had available - along with lots of great recommendations! Overall this is definitely worth the 5 star rating and would gladly recommend to anyone planning a trip to Istanbul.
Charming and accommodating hosts. The apartment was like staying in a hotel suite. Idil has thought of everything!
“a great stay”
Our stay in Istanbul was greatly enhanced by having this beautiful and comfortable apartment for a home base. The decorating and furnishings are elegant but still encourage relaxing and sitting around. The kitchen was great for preparing our own meals and the market provided all we could wish for in practical and gourmet foods. The location is central for walking to attractions or just taking interesting walks. Idil was extremely responsive and informative as we made plans for our trip. Murat was gracious in greeting us and even allowing us to get in a bit early. Everything was clean and operational. The apartment was a joy to come back to at the end of each exhausting day. I would recommend this apartment .
“Cute apartment in a Charming Neighborhood”
We had an absolutely wonderfully time in this adorable apartment. Pros - Cihangir is the perfect location from which to explore Istanbul. 5 minutes walk to tram to Sultanahmet and 10 minutes walk to Taksim Square. Neighborhood is charming with great cafes and restaurants everywhere. Apartment was immaculately clean and very well equipped. Idil, the landlady, was wonderful to deal with. She was extremely responsive to all our needs. Cons - The apartment is on the ground floor, so the noise from the street on weekend nights can be annoying at times. Apartment is ideal for two but a trifle snug for four, however still doable because you won't be hanging out in the apartment too much given everything that Istanbul has to offer.
Thanks a lot! Very nice place! I liked it so much!
“Appart in Istanbul”
The appartment was very clean, efficiently and perfectly fournished. Pretty close to Taksim place and to the tramway which makes it very easy to go to the old city (sultan ahmet...). Generous and friendly service. Just excellent.
