Die Wohnung war sehr gut gelegen , sauber und angenehm eingerichtet.
Leider konnten wir diese erst einen Tag später beziehen, da sie am gebuchten Tag noch belegt war und wir mussten für eine Nacht in eine andere Wohnung.

Sonst war alles sehr in Ordnung.

It is a beautiful appartement in one of the best cities in the world. The location resp. the appartement was as described by Kivanc.Great organisation and support by Kivanc and his friends. Whenever someone is searching for a nice place in Istanbul - here it is!

April 2014

Be careful – the apartment you are booking based on the photo you see might not be the one you will get when you pay and arrive. Before we came, I personally sent two mails to Mr. Kivanc, the owner, insisting to get the apt I saw on webpage and pasted copied picture from the web page two times. But when we arrived at 2 in the morning with a small child, the man in charge took us to the neighbouring building and put us in the flat that I would never choose if a saw it on the picture. When we contacted Mr. Kivanc, he told me that he has 8 apartments in 2 buildings next to each other and “the one that he gave us is recently renovated and better than the one we chose”. I will never know what is the other one like but the situation in this “better” apartment was like this: it is decorated with taste, it might look nice at the first glance but the bathroom had bed smell coming from the drainage (all the time, you have to keep doors closed), toilet bowl was dirty, toilet seat broken, bed sheet had few stains, blankets felt like they get washed maybe once a month (if that much), the stairways are extremely narrow, steep and dangerous (when I complaint about the stairways, Mr. Kivanc told me that they are the same in the other building). And on the top of it all – as few other people wrote in comments – once when you pay in advance it becomes very hard to reach the owner, he is not replying to emails and calls. I only heard from him when he guessed (well) that I will write comment that corresponds to the truth. Mr. Kivanc is a sweet talker but made us wish to run away from the apartment he rented us as soon as possible and we would (if we did not have to pay in advance). I wish Mr. Kivanc all the best in his future work but he is obviously overwhelmed with work and it made him forget that it is about the his guests feeling well, not just making money.

Kivanc was very nice and the flat was fine on the whole. The radiators do not work, so in winter (when I was there) it was cold unless you turned the air-conditioning on (not ideal overnight).

The biggest problem is that when I arrived, I had been double-booked so I had to spend the first night in a smaller flat across the road. Not a great crisis but a common occurrence in this city where people who rent out flats will often promise more than they can deliver.

I would happily stay there again but would double check the booking with Kivanc before arriving.

It was ab absolute pleasure staying with you. I had a great time. Loved Istambul. The apartment was very clean and beautiful, and very close to the markets and Istaklal street. It was my first trip to Istambul and you were a great host, you guided me very well and took me around. The guy who works for you is verryyyy cute, sweeeet and helpful. I was very impressed to see your knowledge specially for my country. Loved the stay. Hope to see you soon. :)

The journey was a bit more difficult because the address was no real knowledge.
It helps as a reference to indicate that you want to "FlashTV Building at Tepebaşı". The property is located in the building next door.

The room itself was neat, clean and as shown on the website.
Staff was very friendly and helpful.

Overall I recommend it. Gladly again.

Kivanc is especially helpful and very friendly host available to provide information. The studio is very bright, very original but mostly clean and sober decoration. It is close to public transport (metro, tram), but also close to the center of modern Istanbul (bar, disco). I recommend the host and the apartment.

Lovely Studio in Great Location

Auch in der dritten von Kivancs Wohnungen war wieder alles gut. Einmal gab es mitten in der Nacht lautstarke Reparaturen im Flur des Gebäudes, was aber eine Ausnahme war.
