Spacious. As I have limited space to write below, I felt it was not worth it, especially I moved out the next day after the blackout. Company should refund my money.
Apartment and all furniture look very dated and some with a lot of watermark and such. Even lampshade has watermark. Some bulbs are not working. Door going out to one of the terraces cannot lock properly (security issue). Door handle going to WC in master bedroom missing. Big watermark on the countertop at kitchen. No air conditioning at the living room, only fan. No TV in apartment. Apartment had blackout (no electricity) for 30-40 minutes on first night. We moved out the next day.
The room was incredibly stuffy and wet due to the 24 hr, constantly running toilet which kept the bathroom freezing and in puddles. The bedding had sharpie on it, the bathroom door is made of transparent glass, every neighbor we had yelled at inappropriate hours (not the hotel's fault), we found a cockroach, there's no safe, and the towels are not replaced or washed. Did I mention that the bathroom door is completely see-through? I'm fairly certain you should just checkout a hostel instead.
Habitaciones amplias y confortables.
el olor a tabaco en ellas.
Perfect location and the contact people were very helpful throughout.
only-apartments did not send e-mails about payment method. I had to place an international call to obtain the contact information of the person in Istanbul.
Most importantly, only-apartments had the wrong address for the apartment.
- unique location, in the middle of vivid/'chique bohemien' district around tower Galata. with nice restaurants and shops. we never felt unsafe.
- very helpful host, taking time for explanation and questions. giving us (re-usable) public transport cards, etc. he contacted us a twice to give extra info and see how we find things
- host arranged also taxi from/to airport; MIND YOU: during rush hour it can take 2 hours to get to the Sabiha Gokcen Airport (Asian part). we had a close finish, nearly missed our flight.
- at 5;00 AM there is 'call for prayer', pretty loud, probably in all parts of Istanbul, not specific for this ares but: close your windows before sleeping!
This apartment is extremely well located... couldn't have asked for a more convenient location. Great to be able to go to a myriad of restaurants and shops in close walking distance from the apartment, but be sufficiently away from the main street to not get the noise disturbance.
Hvis man skal bruge en base og derfra tage ud og se seværdigheder i bil så er placeringen god
Huset er slidt! Der var beskidt, u tømte toilet spande, rengørings udstyr ekstremt beskidt og ildelugtende (muggent), afløb i brusekabiner og gulve var fyldt med hår og uhumskheder! Køkkenet er mangelfuldt udstyret, der er kun bestil til 4 personer og der lugter muggent i skabene under køkkenvask. Køleskabet var beskidt indvendigt. Mangelfuldt sengetøj og ingen vattæpper og de håndklæder der var, var beskidte!
Det vrimler mede sultne katte, så nederste terrasse er ubrugelig .
The first visit to Istanbul with my husband and son was a great experience! We felt like home in this beautiful apartment and Murat was so helpful and great host!
Lively and always crowded Istiklal Caddesi is only few steps away, as well as grocery stores, restaurants and everything else you need. It's very easy to reach the old, historical part of the city using public transportation, and our host even gave us his Istanbul Kart to use it!
There are numerous things to see in Istanbul, and staying in Korur apartment made this first visit perfect. There is definitely no need to look for another place to stay when we come to Istambul again.. And we sure will!
Thanks, Murat :)
Mysig lägenhet, med hemtrevlig inredning. Mycket omtänksam och trevlig hyresvärd.
