Ruby is located at a very silent building with less than 10 residents in one of the safest and tranquillest streets (Cihangir – Purtelas Street) of Taksim that is one of the most important touristic, entertainment and nightlife centers of Istanbul. Stay in Ruby and you are just a few minutes away from hundreds of restaurants, cafes, clubs, bars, shops, bookstores, antique shops, and art galleries in Taksim. Please check end of the description for detailed distance information.
CHECK - IN
Ruby looks exactly the same as shown at the photos. When you make your reservation, I will send an e-mail about details of vehicles you can use to reach flat, clear address description and some other details. When you check in, I will inform you about how to utilize the flat, details of the district, and recommend you certain local places (I am sure you will like them) among which there are places even not known by native Turks and offer detailed information about touristic places. If you wish, we can take a tour around neighborhood. In addition, I can arrange your transfers from the airport by shuttle which can transfer up to 17 people at reasonable prices.
Please read the reviews by former guests to get a better insight about my flats and services and feel free to contact me if you have any questions or concerns.

Wir waren 6 Nächte in Istanbul bei Soraj im Oktober 2014. Sehr angenehme, saubere und warme Wohnung mit allem was man so braucht. Wir wurden sehr herzlich empfangen und bekamen viele tolle Anregungen und Tipps für unseren Aufenthalt. Dazu gehörte ein für uns kostenloses Handy mit türkischer Simkarte, die ständige Erreichbarkeit unserer Gastgeber und ein perfektes Timing. Die Lage der Wohnung war sensationell. Drei Minuten zu Fuß zum Bosporus, zwei Minuten zur Straßenbahn sowie ca 10 Minuten zum Taksimplatz. Hiermit bedanken wir uns nochmal ganz herzlich für den gelungenen Aufenthalt, den Ihr uns bereitet habt. Wir kommen auf jeden Fall wieder. Ach ja, ebenfalls einen großen Dank an das Wimdu-Team, da diese dafür gesorgt haben, dass wir so schnell und unkompliziert diese Wohnung gefunden haben, da es in der eigentlich gebuchten Wohnung zu einer Stornierung wegen Überbuchung kam und das zwei Tage vor Abflug!
