The card itself costs TRY 7 and we load it with TRY 13 so the total becomes TRY 20. Please let us know if you need these cards and how many so that we will make them ready for you when you arrive.
We do not require deposits but we would like our apartments to be in good shape after our guests leave as to expect them to keep the property in good order and leave the apartment in the same condition as when they arrived. All guests are required to give their credit card details as a security deposit in the event of any damaged or missing items.
We would like our Guests to inform us in advance your arrival details and encourage you to order the airport service as it makes your arrival to the apartment much smoother unless you know Istanbul well or have stayed with us previously and know how to get to the building. If you prefer to come on your own we will provide you with directions in Turkish (for the taxi driver) and a map showing the directions to our address. We will appreciate if you can bring a photocopy of each guest’s passport on your arrival who will be staying in the apartment as we need to keep for security reasons on behalf of local authorities.

Reviews for this host's other properties
Our time in Istanbul was amazing. It is a huge city brimming with a culture that goes back thousands of years. Our hosts Gulnar and Aslan met us on arrival and explained everything we needed to know about the apartment. They were exceedingly friendly and helpful throughout our stay and deserve a huge accolade for their service. The apartment is very comfortable, clean, well appointed and well located. It takes a day to get your bearings but once done,you'll find that you are within easy reach of all the main attractions. Aslan advised us to use his driver and buy a travel card( you only need one between two people). We took that advice and we're grateful for it. It makes a world of difference when you arrive to have a person to meet you especially when not too much English is spoken and the signage is in Turkish!! Study a map of the area before you go as the streets can seem like a spiderweb and it's not difficult to get lost....but don't worry, it's part of the adventure! People generally speak enough English to help you out.
Our experience was exceptionally good and we would recommend Aslan Apartments as a great place to stay and absorb the culture of Istanbul.
For Australians and New Zealander's a trip to Gallipoli is a 'must'. You can do it in a (long) day. A big thankyou to Gulnar and Aslan for making our stay so enjoyable.
Lindo apartamento, igual a como son las fotos en internet. Por problemas de conexión llegamos a las O3.00 y nos estaba esperando. En la heladera agua,leche, queso, manteca, aceitunas. En la mesa pan, galletas, fruta., café etc. Muy servicial y atento. Volveriamos encantados
We had a wonderful time in Istanbul. We enjoyed the wonderful seaview from the apartment which is nice, clean and very well equipped. We appreciated the communication with Aslan and Gulnur, they always answered quickly and gave us all support we needed.
We stayed at Seaview Family Suite of Aslan Apartments. The apartment was on the third floor and there was an amazing view at the marmara sea. Our apartment was exactly how it is described. Everything was fine. The hosts were very friendly and there was a good communication before and during our stay. Aslan Apartments is just 3 minutes far from the metro station "cemberlitas" and 5 minutes walking distance from blue mosque (on the front door you only have to go right, at the end of the street turn left). To find a mini market you also have to go 15 meters from the front door in the right direction. The reason why we don´t give 10 points is the surrounding of Aslan Apartments. One of our neighbours made some annoying gestures. We cleared the situation by hanging some carpets over the handrails.
Everything was very well organized. Aslan apartments are very quiet and yet centrally located in the old city of Istanbul. Upon our arrival, we received an extensive introduction to the apartment and the surrounding area. Thanks for the hospitality and good time in Istanbul. We will be back!
Alles war sehr gut organisiert. Aslan Apartments liegen sehr ruhig und trotzdem zentral in der Altstadt von Istanbul. Bei unserer Ankunft haben wir eine umfangreiche Einführung in die Wohnung und die Umgebung erhalten. Vielen Dank für die Gastfreundschaft und die gute Zeit in Istanbul. Wir kommen wieder!
A quality apartment, very good condition, well equipped, the wifi works.
Friendly welcome and advice if necessary. Cleaning done once during the week.
Good location you can do everything in the old town on foot from the apartment.
Un appartement de qualité, très bon état, bien équipé, le wifi fonctionne.
Accueil agréable et conseils si besoin. Ménage fait une fois durant la semaine.
Bien situé on peut tout faire dans la vielle ville à pied en partant de l'appart.
A beautiful, very clean apartment in which we have felt from the beginning. The contact with the owner was smooth and very friendly even with information and questions about the area or Restaurants. Within walking distance of many interesting sights located .We love to come back.
Eine schöne,sehr saubere Wohnung in der wir uns von Anfang an wohl gefühlt haben . Der Kontakt mit dem Vermieter war problemlos und sehr freundlich auch bei Auskünften und Fragen zur Umgebung oder Restaurantsuche . In Laufnähe von vielen interessanten Sehenswürdigkeiten gelegen .Wir kommen gerne wieder .
Dear Gulnur and Arslan,
thank you so much for a wonderful stay in your appartement! We have enjoyed our time there a lot, especially the view from the balcony ;). Also we would like to express our gratitude to your very kind gesture in buying all the food for the first start for us! That is such a nice gesture! Very helpful had been the Information book, we received many recommendations from there, like where to exchange money and how much tip we have to give to whom. We also followed the advice in going with the ferry on a Bosporus trip and loved it from the very first minute. So, thank you for everything and we hope to come back in the near future! Best regards from Marcel & Nicola
Accommodation great, spacious, clean, etc.... we all felt like home. Very close to the tram and nearby convenience stores. Also the landlord was most helpful and forthcoming, who assisted us on our every request.
Would definitely recommend the apartment and the location.
Das Apartment liegt sehr zentral;man kann gut zu Fuß z.B. die blaue Moschee erreichen. Die Ausstattung des Apartments ist sehr gut und bietet einen sehr guten Komfort und Rückzugsraum gerade in einer so pulsierenden und spannenden Mega Stadt. Sehr zu empfehlen.
