Die Unterkunft war vor 2 Jahren sicher wirklich top. Mittlerweile schaut die Wohnung leider nicht mehr ganz so gepflegt aus.

In der Dusche gab es zahlreiche Schimmelflecken, die Schiebetür war ausgehängt und der Griff zum Öffnen dieser hat an einer Seite gefehlt.

Die Matratze war durchgelegen, sodass man die Federn gespürt hat. Dementsprechend lag man relativ hart und unbequem.

Die Küche war leider fast gar nicht ausgestattet, sodass man sich nicht wirklich etwas kochen konnte. Es gab lediglich einen Wasserkocher, die Töpfe waren unsauber und Küchenutensilien suchten wir vergeblich.

Das W-Lan funktonierte zudem gar nicht. Nach 2 Tagen half uns jemand aus der Rezeption, jedoch hatten wir dann trotzdem kein/fast gar kein Netz. Wenn welches vorhanden war, konnte man trotzdem keine Seite aufbauen, weil das W-Lan kurzzeitig wieder den Geist aufgegeben hatte. Somit konnte man das Internet hier gar nicht nutzen. Schade.

Die Ansprechpartner im Büro konnten kaum Englisch. Jedoch waren sie bemüht.

Fazit: Wenn man in Istanbul relativ zentral und preisweit übernachten möchte, ist die Wohnung sicher in Ordnung. Wenn man jedoch nicht jeden Tag auswärts essen möchte, was wir eigentlich vor hatten, ist es sicher besser, etwas mehr Geld zu investieren.

Die Wohnung lag sehr zentral, 3 Minuten vom Taksimplatz und der anliegenden Istiklal Strasse entfernt. Unser Appartment war mit einem Doppelbett und einer Schlafcouch ausgestattet. Das Bad war modern und sauber. Die Küchenzeile hatte einen Kühlschrank, zwei Herdplatten sowie einen Wasserkocher und war völlig ausreichend. Geschirr war anfangs nur für 2 Personen vorhanden, nachdem wir jedoch nachgefragt haben, wurde sofort ein weiteres Geschirr/Besteckset nachgereicht. Das Personal ist sehr hilfsbereit und bei Fragen wurde uns jederzeit geholfen. Die einzige schlechte Erfahrung für uns war, dass am Samstag in Taksim Demonstrationen stattfanden und zum abend das gesamte Viertel Taksim gesperrt war. Somit hatten wir keine Chance, zurück in unser Appartment zu gelangen. Wir hätten es sehr begrüßt, wenn wir vom Eigentümer und seinen Angestellten vorab darauf hingewiesen worden wären. Ansonsten hatten wir einen super Aufenthalt in Istanbul und würden das Appartment jederzeit wieder buchen.

The Appartement was located in the first floor of a clean house in a small street 3-5 minutes by foot from the taksim square. The bathroom and the kitchen as the bed were clean. We got slippers and soups and towels. At the 4th day of our stay everything was cleaned. Unfortunately the bed sheets were not changed. It was a nice stay and we felt secure . With metro it took us about 15 minutes to emininü. Best wishes to the nice staff who met us at the taksim square to show us the location and were very friendly.

I loved staying here. The apt. is clean, charming, and private and the hosts are great. It is less than 5 mins. walking from Taksim. I had the best of both worlds. I lived in a traditional turkish neighborhood yet just a short walk to every commerical site imaginable.

We really liked this place - super close to Taksim Square and Istiklal St, but quiet and far enough away that you can still find cheap local places to eat nearby. The room was clean and bright, with a table and chairs, fridge and small kitchenette, and had probably the fastest wi-fi we had in the various places we stayed in Istanbul. It is a suite in a small building (less than 10 rooms), and the staff were friendly and helpful. We'd definitely stay here again

The apartment was very lovely and very tastefully decorated. Everything was new and the clean and tidy.

The location was very central and only 1-2 minute walk to the Taksim Square, which is the buzzing heart of Istanbul. So it was just Perfect.

The Hosts Arda and his brother were extremely helpful and made us our stay very pleasant and accommodating. They had arranged the pick up from the airport which was very good and cheaper and convenient then haggling with taxis outside.

I am also a Wimdu Host in London and We would definitely recommend Arda and his apartment in Istanbul any time.

Excellent Location and choice of apartments at reasonable rates... Brilliant 5 Star Service and very friendly Host.

All the Best.

Romantic Suite in Taksim Square

The location was perfect. They have 3 buildings and they mus be near between them.So... the address that appears when you book is not the exactly one.
The studio was the perfect size. Cleaning was ok although it could be better.
Anyway. I would repeat it.
