The apartment is very centrally located. The price-performance ratio is okay!

Small but cosy flat with a very comfortable bed in kind of a rough but very central neighbourhood. We enjoyed our stay very much.

When we turned up, they told us they were overbooked so we were put up in a nearby apartment for the first 2 nights.
That apartment was ok. The only problems were the annoying red light around the bed frame that could not be switched off. On a note of safety, the amplifier circuit (with a huge yellow sticker - warning high voltage) was very close to the bed and a big electrical hazard. The bathroom door didn't lock at all.

After the 2 nights, they kindly moved all of our stuff into the apartment we had booked. Much better - amazing view over the city and nice bathroom with proper ventilation.

There was little attention to maintenance / housekeeping in the second apartment: The cupboards in the kitchen were not properly stacked and the shower tray had a crack in the bottom which resulted in flooding of the bathroom floor every time you used the shower.

The staff were nice and friendly - I think that was one of the highlights.
The location is excellent. You are only about 4-5 minute walk from your door to the top of Istiklaal street.

Would I stay there again ----- perhaps.
Its not the best place I can think of but at the same time, I'm sure there's a lot worse.

The apartment was clean and well kept, and the staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Having wi-fi, instant hot water, a kichenette and washer were perfect for my extended stay. Being within walking distance to a large number of shops and restaurants, as well as, public transportation made the location especially convenient. The property is in a neighborhood undergoing revitalization, so a traveler expecting a Park Avenue, New York experience might be put off, but I personally had no complaints. If you're looking to stay in Taksim and you really want to experience Istanbul, I'd recommend this property.

We really enjoyed our stay, the apartment was nice and exactly as shown in the pictures. The reception was helpful and nice, also there was someone there always. The Location was perfect, very near Istiklal caddesi and Taksim square but not at all noisy from traffic. The room was not especially clean but not dirty neither.
All in all, we'd stay there again!

We received a very friendly and it was up to 24 clock always a contact person. They were very friendly and helpful, but we did not even get the host Atilla to face, which I found a little pity. The apartment was a great disappointment, the room did not look like the pictures shown in Wimbu and was really dirty. Especially the bathroom and the kitchen. In the kitchen cupboard we found dirty dishes and a mop which was deep brown. The bathroom, especially the shower were very dirty, with hair from previous occupants, and mold. The apartment is very centrally located, only 5 minutes from Tazimplatz, but in a very dodgy road and always very loud.

My husband and I stayed for 6 days. The hotel is in a great location, 2 minutes walk to Taksim Square, in fact we walked to the Blue Mosque easily as well. The room was very clean, sheets and towels changed every two days, bathroom looked recently renovated, kitchen great. The staff were always friendly and helpful, laundry service just around the corner, also small supermarket that stocked fresh fruit and vege and the best goats cheese I have tasted. Would definitley stay again.
