Penthouse Suite with Amazing View

well located property with 10-15 mins walk to the centre of Sultanhemet and 10-15 min walk to the nearest tram. very close to local supermarkets, restaurants, fish market and shops. bit tricky to find but call the number provided and they will guide you. We took metro and tram from Ataturk airport and then walked to apartment. The road the apartment is in is opposite "best shoes" shop on the main road and the front door to the block is opposite the front door of the Ottoman tulip hotel. Apartment comfortable and clean, wii fi a bit patchy, water went off for a few hours twice but this is normal for Istanbul. keep kettle filled and spare water. You should enjoy your stay there.

1 Bedroom Apt with Balcony near the Blue Mosque

Saban collected us at the tram station Sultanahmet and brougth us to our accomodation which was big enough for a family with 4 children.
For any questions we had always the opportunity during our vacation to contact Saban and his colleagues.
Everything was fine with the accomodation except the two following minor issues (but not discussed with Saban):
First we had at one day only cold shower. Secondly we didn't managed to switch on the heating (as we had 3 colder days in Istanbul).
Anyway the siting of the accomodation next to the main places of interest is excellent.

Sultanahmet, Akbiyik - 3 BR,Luxury Apartment

Vi havde et fantastisk ophold i Istanbul.
Var yderst tilfreds med den service vi fik fra Saban og det øvrige personale. På trods af, der i informationen stod, vi fik skiftet håndklæder hver anden dag, fik vi nye hver dag.
Dagligt var der rengøring på, og vi fik redt senge, støvsuget og vasket op, hvilket vi slet ikke havde forventet.
Eneste minus ved lejligheden var, at vi havde fået indtryk af, fra oplysningerne på hjemmesiden om, at lejligheden var større, og der ikke var en stue vi kunne sidde i om aftenen.
Det er knap så sjovt, at sidde på stole i køkkenet, efter en lang dag på sightseeing, i stedet for at flade ud i stue møbler.
Men servicen var i top. Uanset hvilke "problermer" vi henvendte os med, var der hjælp/service på med det samme.
Så vil helt klart anbefale wimdu, og specielt Saban og hans personale til andre. Og vi kunne godt finde på at leje samme lejlighed igen en anden gang, trods den manglende stue :-)
Desuden er beliggenheden yderst central i den gamle bydel, som i sig selv er en fornøjelse at gå tur i.

Sultanahmet Very Central 2 Bedroom Apartment, 70 Sqm, 1st FL,

Je n'ai pas eu l'appartement que j'ai réservé et payé.
Celui qui m'a été proposé était nettement moins confortable et aucune compensation proposée.
Je ne suis finalement pas très content

1 Bedroom Apt with Balcony near the Blue Mosque

Die Lage ist exzellent und wir hatten mit unseren 2 fast erwachsenen Kindern genügend Platz im Appartment. Alles war sauber und wirkte neu. Ja, der Balkon ist schmal aber man kann trotzdem jeden Morgen zu viert im herrlichsten Sonnenschein sein Frühstück geniessen und am Abend - immer noch in der Sonne - ein kühles "Effes" trinken. Einkausmöglichkeiten gibts um die Ecke genug. Ein großer Supermarkt ist gar nicht notwendig. Wir waren in den Herbstferien in Istanbul, also zur Hochsaison, und hatten trotzdem sehr ruhige Nächte. Empfindliche Gemüter können ja Notfall-Ohropax einstecken - der Muezzin ist Frühaufsteher...
Hagia Sophia(das Beste), Zitadelle(auch sehr gut), Blaue Moschee(auch sehr gut), Sultanspalast(eher enttäuschend und nervig wegen der Massen) liegen wirklich gleich um die Ecke - so dass man es vor den riesigen Warteschlangen schaffen kann. Empfehlenswert ist der Erwerb der Istanbulcard für alle Öffentlichen Verkehrsmittel. Man spart damit und ist mit Bahn, Metro, Fähre schneller unterwegs als mit jedem Taxi.
Saban und seine Mitarbeiter haben auf alle unsere Nachrichten schnell geantwortet. Der Abholservice am Flughafen hat bestens funtioniert und ist mit 25 Euro zwar 5 Euro teurer als das normale Taxi, doch dafür kommt man entspannt an.

Penthouse Suite with Amazing View

El apartamento esta muy bien, lo limpian a diario y cambian las toallas, pero su ubicacion no me gusto nada. Esta céntrico, pero no hay nada q hacer, ni comercios ... La calle es muy cutre, edificios en ruinas...

1 Bedroom Apt with Balcony near the Blue Mosque

Tengo el corazón dividido. Por un lado, el apartamento era correcto, limpio y ordenado. Además, tenía limpieza diaria. La localización excelente para hacer turismo, muy cerca de Santa Sofía y la Mezquita Azul. El trato con Saban fue agradable, aunque es cierto que tardé en obtener respuesta a algunos correos que le envié.
Por otro lado, como lado negativo es que cuando llegamos, nos reubicaron en otro apartamento distinto al que habíamos contratado. La única ventaja es que tenía una habitación más, pero el balcón era interior y prácticamente inutilizable, a diferencia de la foto del agradable del balcón publicada en Wimdu, el edificio era más antiguo y en general, el apartamento era menos atractivo que el que habíamos contratado (aparentemente por las fotos, claro, por que no llegamos a ver el otro).
En cualquier caso, la experiencia en general fue positiva y supongo que volvería a hablar con Saban para quedarme en su apartamento, eso sí, me aseguraría de que fuese el que hubiese contratado...

Beautifully Styled Studio

I booked this studio for my parents, they really enjoyed staying there. Saban is a great host and was very kind to help them during their time in Istanbul. It was very tidy and was cleaned every day. Furthermore there was a safe in the room. Everything was very good, thanks again :)
