Elif's apartment is ideally situated in the center of Galata area and thus allows a strategic view towards city center. She is very welcoming and considerate person. Shops and a number of good addresses are just nearby. Only con is that there is no elevator. Absolutely recommend.

My stay at Elif's was fantastic! The flat was very accurate to the pictures as well as clean. The kitchen was very well-stocked, the though it was hot the air conditioning helped a lot. The view from the flat is beautiful! Great neighborhood to be in if you want to be close to bars, restaurants, etc while still being a little bit more removed and in a quieter area. Communication was great and everything went super smoothly. I'd definitely like to stay again when back in the city!

I stayed at Elif's place for a month and it was great! The apartment is lovely and fantastic neighborhood...close to everything (10 min walk from Taksim) but has its own neighborhood hip vibe. The apartment was clean and the view magnificent...totally worth the five-floor walk-up. It can get a little warm but the apartment has an AC. Thanks Elif for a great stay!

Elifs apartment is in an ideal location to meet Istanbul if you are young and it's your fist time in city. It's near the Galata Tower and 15 minutes from the most fashionable and hipster district of Karakoy (the best bars, cafes, shops). The apartment itself has a beautiful design, quiet neighbors and is hidden from the eyes of tourists. Everything was clean, comfortable and positive. Elif painted a map for us with the main sights and was very helpful all the time!

I had a wonderful time at Elif's flat. She was always available via messenger at any time while she was in India, there were times I wondered if she ever even went to sleep :). The location was awesome, and I found that so many amazing spots that I was prepared to taxi or metro to were only a simple walk away! My only tip is, if you aren't a fan of a lot of steps (5 stories high) and kind of narrow, then this isn't a flat for you. Otherwise, you will have an amazing time and definitely get the biggest bang for your buck with this place.

Elif was incredibly helpful and although we couldn't meet because she was out of the country she guided me perfectly through all little perks of the flat and neighbourhood. Both at Check-in/out and throughout my stay the communication was perfect! The flat is really great too, I was travelling alone so didn't need the extra bedroom but I'm sure it would make a perfect holiday-home for couples as well as small families. The flat has all the basics one needs when travelling and the view generously repays the 4 floors of steep steps (this might put off some visitors but it's pointed to in the description of the flat). Being on a side street the flat is also really quiet at night even if it's very centrally located. I can only recommend your stay at Elif's place and will definitely consider it again for my next trip!
