This was a student-like living experience. Buddhika was a congenial host. We stayed for 5 nights. The location was good, being close to public transport and central to many of the usual tourism sites. Like a dorm, many rooms were all being occupied at the same time with a com…

Jay, after making sure that almost 100 guests that we have host were happy, I can announce that I am thinking this kind of unpolite speaking will stop me from taking anymore guest and closing my airbnb account totally. When was the last dorm you have seen with a perfect view in the city center with a selling price of (Phone number hidden by Airbnb) $ ? Sheets get cleaned all the time. The wooden thing staying infront of your eyes for 5 nights was a closet. Pillows are pillows that has the usual size that you can buy from any market. Beds are orthopedic and new. Again mosquitos are problem everywhere in Turkey in the summer. Dirty dishes? Seriously? You are speaking about my house that I am inviting guests, be happy and not primarily for money and if you have problems with being happy, just consult some one else.

Very well located close to the Galata tower and right next to the metro station sishane. Great view overlooking the golden horn. Unfortunately it was extremely loud during the day and night (couldn't even hear our alarm) due to a busy road just in front of our room. Air condition…

If you look at other reviews, Lisa's discontent is an exception. It is very mean of her to leave such an exaggerated review despite me trying to be polite. Even though they did not care about the house rules and left their room with their trash everywhere, I gave them a good review.

We had an amazing time at the apartment in Istanbul and lived every minute of our stay. Tunc was a great host and helped us out with everything we needed. The apartment has amazing views and is in the perfect location for everything in Istanbul. Hoping we can return again soon!

We stayed very well in this house. Good location, great view on the Golden Horn. Our host made a great job in making us feel like at home, offering us tea and tips on the city.

Buddhika was a very nice host, we really liked the atmosphere in his house! The room was cosy, only a bit noisy with the street just below the house. 1a Lage, supernetter Gastgeber, tolle Atmosphäre in der Wohnung, einziges Manko: Straßenlärm und schlecht isolierte Fenster …
