Reviews of this property
Nice decorated loft with indeed nice terrace.
A nice kitchen and good bed!
The loft is situated in a neighbourhood with a lot of little shops,restaurants, juppies and students.
The owner tells you a lot about the neighbourhood and all the nice places to eat and see.
We had a great time in this great city!!
A centrally located but quiet apartment where we felt immediately at home and where we could tune in to the great history and impressive sights of the city of Istanbul. Although the shower might admit improvements, we definitely recommend both this apartment and our host who gave us useful advice, directions and illuminating perspectives.

It was a great week in Istanbul! The flat was excellent, everything was there.
We really enjoyed the time there. The location of the flat is quite central. You can walk around the district of Beyoglu. Small streets with different shops in the neighborhood. Directly over the street there is a grocery store were you can buy what you need. The next station is a 5 min walk away, it is "Tophane".
Aydin is great, before we've arrived he wrote a despription how to come to his home, there was no problem at all to come via puplic transportation from the airport Atatürk to this flat. We bought a "istanbul card", and drove everything via public transportation.
I can really recommend the flat and the host of the flat!!
Warm apartment (as temperature as well as atmosphere), located in a very good location, walk distance to Tophane Tram Station (T1 - 10 mins to Sultanahmet) and to İstiklal Caddesi. Also pubs and restaurants are near the building.
No noise during the night
Apartment is big and perfect for resting after a day spent visiting Istanbul
Aydin is very friendly. Before our arrival he answered in short time to our mails and -when we arrived there- he spent quite one hour explaining us the location, what to visit and where we could find good restaurant and cafe.
If back to Istanbul, I'll book again the same apartment!
Aydın was a very kind host who is always ready to help. Right at the beginning of our stay he gave us a nice tour through the streets to cafes, bars and shops in the surroundings of our apartment. We were happy to visit some of these during the next days.
The apartment is clean and spacious so that it's easy to relax and feel comfortable. We particularly liked the rooftop terrace where you can "feel" the city life in the evenings in a good atmosphere. This accomodation can't be better located. It's right in Beyoğlu, a lively part of Istanbul. Also, the main sights are not far away and easy to access via city train.
We are happy to come back one day and to stay in this apartment once again if it's available. ;-)
We loved our stay with Aydin and Esra, and Istanbul is a beautiful city. The apartment is in a lovely area of Istanbul, and the metro is nearby to take tourists to the main attractions (e.g. Blue Mosque). In particular we enjoyed the food recommendations from Aydin, we tried most of them and loved it. One of our favourite food was actually the place around the corner from the flat. The flat itself was very clean and tastily decorated, just sweet. If we return to Istanbul we sure to stay with them again!
Aydin was a great host his tour of the area on arrival was very usefull and informative. Flat in a great location plenty of places to see and eat all within a short walk. Flat was well presented and very clean. Can not fault
Good day everybody, Aydin and his lovely wife are excellent hosts and provide a perfectly appointed apartment in the middle of Beyoglu. In the kitchen you can easily prepare all your meals, it's just all there. Even questions on a board or a hair dryer was done without any problems. The introduction tour in the neighborhood has given us a first impression and was very valuable, easy also where you can go shopping or fine dining are found for the first two days. The apartment with great terrace has given us a great start to the wonderful world of Istanbul every day and we'll be back. For small children, but the patio is a little dangerous because the wall is very low. Aydin wanted to change this in the near future. Greeting Frank Balensiefer
Guten Tag Zusammen,
Aydin und seine liebenswerte Frau sind hervorragende Gastgeber und bieten eine perfekt ausgestattete Wohnung in Mitten von Beyoglu. In der Küche kann man problemlos alle Mahlzeiten zubereiten, es ist einfach alles da. Selbst Fragen nach einen Bügelbrett oder nach einem Fön wurde ohne Probleme erledigt.
Die Einführungstour in der Nachbarschaft hat uns einen ersten Eindruck vermittelt und war sehr wertvoll, einfach auch wo man einkaufen gehen kann oder gute Restaurants für die ersten zwei Tage zu finden sind.
Die Wohnung mit der tollen Terrasse hat uns einen tollen Start in die wunderbare Welt von Istanbul jeden Tag gegeben und wir kommen wieder. Für kleine Kinder ist die Terrasse jedoch ein wenig gefährlich, da die Mauer sehr niedrig ist. Aydin wollte dies in der nächsten Zeit ändern.
We had wonderful days in Istanbul. Aydin gave us a very nice and presented to us on a little walk the immediate area. It was not too far to Taksim Square and we have seen the many young people who were demonstrating for their freedom rights - peacefully! The clashes happened at night and we were never threatened them. Even in the immediate vicinity of the place we felt nothing of the protests. We felt very comfortable and enjoyed breakfast on the large terrace. The apartment is nicely furnished and there was nothing missing! All the major attractions can be reached from there well and in the distance you can eat well, some with stunning views over the city!. The farewell difficult for us!

Wir hatten wunderbare Tage in Istanbul. Aydin hat uns sehr nett empfangen und uns auf einem kleinen Spaziergang die unmittelbare Umgebung vorgestellt. Es war nicht allzu weit zum Taksim Platz und wir haben die vielen jungen Leute gesehen, die für ihre Freiheitsrechte demonstrierten - friedlich! Die Zusammenstöße passierten nachts und wir waren davon nie bedroht. Schon in nächster Umgebung des Platzes spürte man nichts mehr von den Protesten. Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt und das Frühstück auf der großen Terrasse genossen. Die Wohnung ist liebevoll eingerichtet und es hat an nichts gefehlt! Alle großen Sehenswürdigkeiten sind von dort gut zu erreichen und in der Nähe kann man gut essen z. T. mit herrlichem Blick über die Stadt!. Der Abschied viel uns schwer!

We loved it here. It's a spacious light apartment with some wonderful antique furnishings and a large terrace that's great for relaxing after a day exploring. On the one hand it's close to Istiklal Caddesi and some great local bars and restaurants which have live bands at night. On the other hand it's close to the Galatasary neighbourhood, with great local cafes and shops. It's an easy walk to the tram stop and Taksim Square. Aydin, the owner, was friendly and helpful; we'll definitely be going back.
