“Absolutely wonderful stay in a very charming apartment offered by great hosts”
Julia's and Tarkan's Hendek place in the Galata area is utterly charming and its location is simply perfect for a week long stay in Istanbul. Tarkan and Julia were always very responding, everything was organized smoothly. 100% reliable and kind hosts. The apartment is perfectly clean, very spacious and quiet with a fully equipped kitchen. Great place to stay for a couple or, as in our case, for a family of four traveling with two kids (8 yrs and 3 yrs). Downstairs you have a grocer and shops selling food and it's just a short walk away from Istiklal and a subway station. I recommend this place to anyone who wants to visit Istanbul because it's really spacious, luxury and boasts a fantastic location! Will be back in July.
“Charming apartment in great location!”
Stayed here with my husband and a friend after a cruise of the Aegean Sea. We were pleased by the location because we just had to tell the taxi drivers to take us to the Galata Tower and we found that everyone of them drove down our street and we just had to say "Stop here!" That was important to us because we'd stayed In an apt in Athens that all the taxi drivers had trouble finding. We also enjoyed being near that area because after returning from a day of touring, my friend and I could safely go to the nearby shops to do some shopping while my husband rested at home. There are lots of taxis around the Tower which is about a block and a half from the apt. and we paid an average of about $10 US to go to or return from Sultanamet where most of the tourist sites are. The apt. Is simply but tastefully decorated and is charming if you appreciate older buildings like we do. It was great having an extra bathroom with a toilet and sink. We had a very nice meal our last night at the restaurant with the large outdoor eating area across from the Tower and another night at the Anemon Hotel with a great view of the Old City and the Tower. Fuuat went to extra trouble to make sure we were picked up by the driver they arranged for to get us to the airport on time very early in the morning. The area immediately surrounding the apt. Is like much of Istanbul with some buildings being restored and others sorely needing help. We were very satisfied with the condition of the building we were in. It's a great value for the cost. We prefer renting apts. in a neighborhood to renting hotels. Thank you Fuuat for your kind and attentive service!
“Great location, nice place”
This place is right around the corner from Galata tower, which is a very convenient location. It's clean and simple, with pleasant decor. Nothing super fancy or opulent about it, just a clean, pleasant place. A great place for an extended stay (we were four--me, my husband and my parents). The owners, whom we met when getting the keys and when leaving, are very nice, unobtrusive, and helpful. The apartment is right across the street from a parking garage, which makes for an uninteresting view, and meant for us that car alarms going off in the middle of the night with the car owner not around to turn them off marred our sleep a couple of times. Do know that the place is at the top of a big hill (there is a funicular nearby) and up several very tall flights of stairs, which was a little hard on my aging parents.
“A perfect long weekend vacation in Istanbul”
our family of 2 adults and 2 youngsters had a wonderful 3 day vacation in one of the most beautiful cities of the world. we loved each moment of our trip and to this fantastic feeling the apartment we have chosen gave an important added value : its location is perfect and its quality was of a high standard. It has really a central location, 100 meters from the Galata Tower; and with a 5-7 minute-walk one can reach Galata Bridge which brings the visitor to the area of the historical Istanbul. The apartement itself is big enough for 4-6 persons, furnished and equipped very well and with an excellent style. The service was excellent as well: all our questions,requests were answered already during our "research" period; during our stay the local representative of the family,Fuat, was very kind and helpful. Also the airport transport offered by the owners of the apartment was of a great quality. to sum up our experience : we recommend to everybody this apartment who looks for a solution with a good price and quality ratio.
We very much enjoyed our stay in Istanbul. The apartment was ideal for our family (we have 2 small children). It was conveniently located near cafes, grocery, and just a short walk to public transport. Being near a major landmark made it very easy to find our way home each day. The airport transfer offered was also very good and car seats were even provided for the children.
I would like to recomment this guest house for Turkey stay. You will be promised to stay in a clean accomodation which were reflected on the internet photos with unexpected excellent service. When my family and I arrived in Turkey, Mr Fuad did text me to welcome our arrival and he was there at the guest house to assist us with our big numbers of luggage. We felt the warmth welcome. The accomodation itself was vey well kept and it was very clean and we were very pleased with all the utensils provided. The location and amenities were near to Taksim and it was very assessable to use tram and trains. I will highly recomend this guest house to anyone who wish to have excellent experience.
My friend Kate found the apartments and we rented two at once as we were a large party of 11. The apartments were perfect for us - children, friends, families - lovely and light and modern inside wonderful period buidings. The service provided was incredible and everything and everyone was great. These apartments have no outside space and for when we were there, February/March it was ideal but I don't know what it would be like in the summer. On the other hand, I don't want to go to Istanbul in the summer! Our plans changed during our visit to Turkey and fome of my family ended up returning to the Hendek apartments for a further weekend (after our initial 5 days) and my husband said the view from the top floor was worth the climb with the luggage! He said to ask for the top flat as it was magical.
“Perfect stay in Istanbul great location with great style”
We stayed for one week in the hendek apartments with our 1 year old daughter. Tarkan was very accommodating and provided all that was needed with a child. We found the apartments (our friends rented 2 of the other apartments in the building) extremely comfortable and very well kitted out. It was the little touches such as dishwasher tablets, salt and washing powder as well as guide books, maps and a travel card for the tram that we found cemented our high opinion of tarkan and his team. The area was great withs shops, coffee shops and restaurants all on the door step. It's an easy travel into the major sights. It is a bit of a climb up the hill coming home from the tram but taxi's are cheap and plentyful. Overall - wonderful experience -very easy to deal with and helpful
I came across this apartment through Vrbo but decided to stay elsewhere for other reasons. Two weeks before my trip to Turkey I was contacted by the family to let me know they could offer me an apartment at a special rate if I hadn't booked a place yet. I was so impressed with their follow up I cancelled my other reservation and made one with them. So glad I did.. The apartment is beautiful renovated, nice views and conveniently located with lots of great independent designers and music stores ard the corner. The family was there to greet me and also to see me off with just a handshake and 'thanks for staying with us!' They were super. Totally recommend staying with these folks!
Great apartment in Istanbul. We stayed with 4 adults in the apartment everything was very clean and good beds. We will go back to this place!
