comfy room in best location @center
Welcome to our brand new house, as we love to call it a "nest".
Because it is important to choose a nest in a foreign country, let me try to describe how it will be like, to live in our place.
Our house is located in Osmanbey which may be the most central spot in town. The district is famous with its internationally known open air fashion market which has a huge number of possibilities to make good shopping from.
it is almost 30 km away from Ataturk Airport and it is just in the middle of many local centers like Taksim, Besiktas, Nisantasi, Kurtulus and Levent.
Our flat is on the second floor of an old Istanbul apartment, which has high ceilings and painted wooden floors.
We have 5 rooms, a living area, a kitchen and 2 bathrooms.
we have 8 mb unlimited wifi connection and we have unlimited water, tea and coffee :)
We tried to think about all the things you might need and enjoy in a room.. We tried to prepare a spot where you will love to live in, during your stay.
Our RED room is a modern and stylish decorated one.
It is almost 15 m2 and it gives you the feeling of a comfy, spacious and relaxed place to live in.
it is designed with different colors, mostly red and green, and have its own concept to serve you the joy of a comfortable stay.
We have placed side bed lamps and a closet, to make you settle more comfortably. We decorated it with creative simple ideas, but i must say that, we have chosen the "5 star hotel quality" for our king sized bed. We hope that you will enjoy it after long, exhausting walks in istanbul :)
the room has a central heating for winter and a remote controled ceiling vantilator for summer time.
Our kitchen has all the equipment you will need, to cook your own meals. We have a corner for 4 in the kitchen and besides, we have a table for 6 in our living area, where you can enjoy your meals.
Osmanbey is an old residential area for the locals and it still has the spirit of neighborhood. You will find everything you need in few minutes walk.
Laundry, Coiffeur, Pharmacy and Bakeries are very close. There is a supermarket in 30 m, many cafe and fastfood restaurants in 10-50 m, a grossery in 100 m and some liquer shops just in front of the house.
on Mondays and Thursdays we have a fresh vegetables and fruıts bazaar with in 10 mins walk. you may find it amazingly cheap, but delicious :)
and on Sundays the bazaar turns into a vintage and second hand market, which may be a must see in istanbul.
With a police station in 50 m, our street may be one of the safest places in the city.
You may choose to walk every where but since we are 50 m away from one of the main avenues of istanbul (Halaskargazi avenue), you have the chance to go anywhere with public transport. The metro station, which is only one stop away from Taksim, is a 2-3 mins walk away from our house. Besides going to Taksim, by using the metro line, you will be able to go to Kabatas where you can find a tram to the Golden Horn, a ship to the Islands and the Asian side.
The other line of the metro goes to some other parts of the city such as Levent (famous for shopping malls) Sariyer and Tarabya (famous for seaside walks).
as you know, the place you choose is not only the place, itself..
i must say that ; because, we love the idea of this system, we do our best, to make you feel home and add some additional value to your journey.
we hope to see you here soon :)

Reviews for this host's other properties
We had a great stay in Istanbul. Niso's appartement is fine, we had enough space for the 8 of us, we have a few remarkes, maybe because its an old building? There was the smell from the shower drain, and some problems with the keys/ lock of the frontdoor. Niso did his best to fixe this.
Large apartment located near Osman Bey metro in Sisli area.
Lots of supermarkets and low cost restaurants outside the door.
Its an old apartment surely but large and with 5 proper rooms with proper beds.
We were 8 adults in my family and it worked out very well.
Niso is a very kind man and kept his word bringing us big bottles of water to the water dispenser and new linnens and towels once during our stay.
I must say that the apartment is very old and can feel dirty which we told Niso. He instantly brought the cleaning lady to take another round the first day we arrived. Also very kind. When we left we caused and issue bu locking the door from the outside while the other key was still in the lock from the inside. This resulted in not being able to open the door from the outside anymore. I know what ur thinking, why should that even be a possibility to be able to out your selfe in such a situation. I guess the simple answer is, it´s an old building with 3+M from floor to ceiling. So there´s a charm with old apartments as well. But I would stay there again if with a big group if it was renovated. I believe it would be a good investment.
Niso if you plan to sell, let me know we could arrange a good deal maybe. Thanks and sorry for the key
We can recommand this appartment. We were with 8 persons and had a verry nice stay in Istanbul. The appartement was clean, we had everything we needed and we had plenty of room, although we didn't spend much time in the appartment. Niso arranged the transport from and to the airport, so we had no worries about that. The metro is close to the appartment, but we mostly took the taxi, because we were with 8 it was cheaper. Niso is a verry kind and helpfull man, if you have questions you can ask him.
It was a great time in Istanbul. Thanks a lot to Niso, a very nice and helpful host! The apartment was beautiful, very clean and well situated, not far from Metro and Taksim-place. All in all everything worked out fine and we enjoyed the our trip a lot!
We, a group of seven friends, had a perfect time in Istanbul. The property has certainly helped. The apartment, located in the basement of a building, is well situated: approximately 30 minutes walking from Taksim Square. A better option is to use the subway. Osmanbey Metro stop is within walking distance (a few minutes). With the subway is pretty much throughout Istanbul to reach. Do not expect luxury apartment. The property offers ample space for 6 to 8 people. The bedrooms were basic but clean. The living room is perhaps somewhat dark. On the other hand, in Istanbul, you must go out, explore the city. This made it a great base for us. If desired, it can be cooked in the apartment just fine. Given the many wonderful restaurants we have not had to make. Use this option Very pleasant was the contact with Niso, the homeowner. He has nicely helped us with transportation to and from the airport and was also always available for questions, and nice suggestions (eg the Princes Islands). Niso, thanks for the nice vacation!
Wij, een groep van zeven vrienden, hebben een perfecte tijd gehad in Istanbul. De accommodatie heeft daaraan zeker bijgedragen. Het appartement, gesitueerd in het souterrain van een gebouw, is goed gelegen: lopend circa 30 minuten van het Taksimplein. Een betere optie is gebruik van de metro. Metrohalte Osmanbey is op loopafstand (slechts enkele minuten). Met de metro is zo'n beetje heel Istanbul goed te bereiken. Verwacht geen luxe appartement. De accommodatie biedt voldoende ruimte voor 6 tot 8 personen. De slaapkamers waren basic, maar netjes. De woonkamer is wellicht wat donker. Aan de andere kant: in Istanbul moet je naar buiten, de stad verkennen. Dit maakte het voor ons een prima uitvalsbasis. Indien gewenst, kan er prima worden gekookt in het appartement. Gelet op de vele perfecte restaurants hebben wij niet van deze mogelijkheid gebruik hoeven maken. Erg prettig was het contact met Niso, de huiseigenaar. Hij heeft ons keurig geholpen met het vervoer van en naar de luchthaven en was daarnaast altijd bereikbaar voor vragen en leuke suggesties (bijvoorbeeld de Prinsen Eilanden). Niso, bedankt voor de mooie stedentrip!
The flat was clean, convenient and comfortable. Niso was very kind and speaks english better than I do... I strongly recommand! I will be very pleased to meet him again the next time I go to Istanbul. Thank you very much Niso!
I want to start by thanking Niso for our amazing stay in Istanbul! Indeed this apartment is exquisite. We were a group of ten young adults and went to Istanbul to spend new year. The apartment was very well located and fully equipped, very comfortable and spacious. Just beneath the appartement there were small shops where we could buy our groceries. Niso kindly arranged a mini bus to pick us up from the airport and a drop off at a very reasonable price. He also gave us advice on what to do and how to get from a place to another in Istanbul. He was available at all time and answered prompt questions whenever needed. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone visiting Istanbul, and would definitely stay there again.
The flat is a perfect base for exploring Istanbul with a larger group of people! It's very easily accessible by public transport (Osmanbey Metro station is right nearby; buy an Istanbulkart, the rechargable metro pass, it makes things much easier!). It's also in a very civilized, Westernized part of town, suitable if you don't want to be overly adventurous... The flat is lovely, and very stylishly decorated, and spacious enough to get out of each other's way. The extra bathroom is a real asset, both bathrooms are small but modern, great showers. Slightly smelly drains at times, but it is a 19th century house after all. Fantastic beds, so comfortable! Niso is extremely friendly and helpful and speaks excellent English.
Tolle Wohnung, wie auf den Bildern und im Text angegeben! Gutes Preis-Leistungs-Verhältnis. Mit Niso hatten wir einen zuverlässigen und hilfsbereiten Vermieter. Nur zu empfehlen!
Die Wohnung ist geräumig und ansprechend ausgestattet. 2Zimmer mit Balkon -klasse. Verkehrliche Anbindung gut, Metro in der Nähe ( Istanbul Card zum Aufladen und für mehrere Personen nutzbar). Einkaufsmöglichkeiten nebenan.
Fehlende Ausstattung brachte Niso sofort vorbei, er war in allem sehr hilfreich, freundlich und sympathisch.
Einziger Nachteil: Fluglärm, schlafen nur bei geschlossenem Fenster möglich.
