The apartment was incredible. Well-located and very beautiful on the inside. The only drawback was the lack of A/C, but she quickly fixed that and brought us a portable A/C for each room. 10/10 would recommend. Amazing area, amazing apartment- what more could you want!

This is a very nice home! It is exactly as advertised and was everything that we needed for a quick stay in Istanbul. It is across the street from a fantastic restaurant called Cafe Privato. Additionally, you can walk to many shops and other restaurants from the home. We felt saf…

Dear Rouba, Thank you very much for your lovely review, we're so happy to hear you had an enjoyable and comfortable stay. Regarding big luggage, we're not really sure what you mean but the apartment is a large 2 bedroom apartment (around 100-110 square meters) and it's on the first floor (one flight of stairs). Taxis can come right in front of the building and we can even arrange a porter for a small fee if required. Hope to host you again in Istanbul.

This Airbnb is lovely. Stylish and comfortable. Close to everything. Tucked back on a little street, couple blocks from Galata Tower. Best was to get there is to direct the taxi to Galata Tower and have mapped walking directions for yourself from the tower. Once you know where it…

Great location, comfortable beds and a good sized space for 4 persons. Kitchen is nice, but lacking many of the basics so do not plan on cooking or even making coffee. Hosts that checked in and out were great and very helpful in setting up transport to and from airport. Reco…

Dear Ramin, we're pleased that you overall had a good stay, hope to have you back soon. Your reviews about the kitchen is very confusing though. This apartment's kitchen has an oven, 4 hobs, dishwasher, microwave, full size fridge-freezer, toaster, french press for coffee, sauce pans, frying pans, all cutlery and dishes and glasses, mugs and wine glasses. Kind regards,

A great place close by to the Galata Kulesi (tower), it takes just a few minutes to head over to nice restaurants and bars nearby. Just half an hour away is the old town with its famous mosques. The flat was clean and comfortable, and the hosts even left us a large "tank" of mine…
