This is our 3rd time in the candan and we just love it it’s the first time in this apartment as we normaly stay in the hotel around the corner. But I wasn’t let down and I really enjoyed my stay. If you want a quiet holiday this is the ideal holiday staff for friendly always there to help you and even if you want atmosphere you can walk 2 mins around the corner to the main hotel where the entertainment is amazing and always something to do. Every member of the staff are always there to help you.
Pam Ali and staff were amazing apartment was cleaned daily enjoyed my whole stay
WiFi could be stronger
The apartment was beautiful very well equipped with everything you could need decorated and furnished to a very high standard.
I think the location was the worst it’s beautuful where it is but even the nearest shop is a 45 min walk. The views are amazing and it’s in a lovely spot just a shame no close shops and no nearer taxi button. Also think a iPod dock or stereo would be a good idea.
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.
Really good service , fast check in early in the morning and great communication.
Everything was great
- 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!
