Right at the heart of city- max 5 min walk down from the middle of Taksim, İstiklal Street (Galatasaray Highschool) & to the tram station connecting you to historical peninsula.

This ad is for my room when I am not home, which is often the case!

The space

This cozy room with a proper bed for 2 is soo bright. Its location will enable you to move around easily and come back home, (eat) and walk again to the living part of city also at night the most comfortable way.

Guest access

You will be able to use anything you see at home, just like me. It means: We/you can cook in the fully equipped kitchen.

You have shelves for your staff in the room.

There is internet with, of course, wifi.

Towels and sheets you'll gfind prepared when you arrive home. There's a hair dryer as well.

And just in case you need to wash your things you're welcome. Iron we have as well.

Interaction with guests

I am a professional tour guide. Practically, you will have the map and guide books as well as any kind of necessary info and/or recommandations. I can help you for organizing your stay in a detailed way in advance (which I am used to and paid for :) because I will be not home usually when I rent this room, instead a close friend of mine will meet you and give you necessary info.

Other things to note

When I am not home, the other room of mine is still rented. So, it is a shared flat anyway

House Rules

In Turkey, we do not walk with shoes at home. So, I ask you not to step into the flat with your shoes and you can place them into the cupboard behind the door after entering.There are carpets on floor and flip flops to wear.

And after having lots of guests I feel the need to write detailed rules. Although they all sound really basics I realised that it might be useful;)

It is a shared flat and we have a shared bathroom. So, I also use it. It is normal that one wants to take hours long showers during vacation or just wanna get prepared for soo long, but I also need to use it. Thatswhy, I ask my guests not to stay for really long especially in the mornings. And it would be nice if you clean the shower after yourself. Also, the window in the bathroom needs to be open at least after shower.

In the kitchen we have a dishwasher. I ask you to put your dish into and if I am not home please turn it on, it still does not know to clean itself;) and it really stinks.
I really like to share but it doesnt make one happy when returning home and find the bottles empty:(

Our stay at Züleyha's was great! She provided us directions in Turkish to show the taxi driver at the airport, and had her flatmate available to assist with any issues since she was out of town when we arrived. We did get to meet Züleyha half way through our stay, and she provided us great advice for places to get dinner and the best baklava. We also got to share dinner with her and her friends. Everyone we interacted with was very nice and helpful. We only wish we could have stayed in Istanbul longer!

Züleyha's apartment was beautiful - and Züleyha herself was a great host. She told us of where to get the best Turkish Delight in Istanbul, and Kurdish breakfasts - we were only sa we didn't get to see more of her. A lovely apartment - thank you Züleyha :)

I love traveling, thus I decided to have it as my full time job and travel with people from Turkey (although it did not take me long to understand that to travel for the sake of working is not the same thing:)

I also host people from other countries here especially in Istanbul as a professional guide. It makes me happier!

I love dancing. Any music can make me dance but I am taking belly dance courses, so at least just for fun I can teach you some moves:)

Other than those, similar to most of us, I enjoy usual staff like watcing movies, reading, spending time with friends etc.
