"This is a great apartment with incredible views, safe neighborhoods and easy access to all major sites by the modern metro and tramway systems, including beautiful parts of Istanbul along the European shore of the Bosphorus. There is a very reliable taxi stand 20 meters from the exit of the building, plus several shops to do one's groceries, plus 4 shopping centers within a 5-20 minute walking distance. Dealing with the owner was a pleasure, straightforward and insightful, to enjoying our stay in this unique city."

"There are many apartments to select from in Istanbul's main tourist areas. However, if you are like me and want to stay somewhere quieter but within easy access to the transit sites, this is an ideal choice. The condo is on the top floor of a residential apartment building and quiet. But, that doesn't mean that you are away from things completely. In fact, it is in a thriving Istanbul neighborhood, within easy walking distance of 3 shopping malls, the Metro and, just outside your door, you have access to a number of grocery stores, restaurants, bakeries and a park. The owner was a real pleasure to deal with and the building's caretaker, who doesn't speak English, was still very helpful and we managed to communicate with relative ease. Sign language and a few Turkish words went a long way."

"Just wanted to thank you for a lovely stay in your Istanbul apartment. We had a wonderful time and it was a great headquarters for us. Roomy and comfortable, with a fantastic view of the City! The sofa bed was perfectly comfortable, as advertised. And you were right, of course, about the neighborhood - quiet and pleasant. The shopkeepers were all friendly and helpful. We all swooned over the baklava from the bakery. As you predicted, we fell in love with Istanbul. What a lovely, vibrant old city! We feel like we went everywhere (thanks to the wonderful tour guide you suggested) and did everything and still just scratched the surface. We are looking forward to a return visit someday. My most striking impression was of the people who were uniformly friendly, charming and welcoming. A great experience! Thank you, again, for helping make our trip such a happy adventure.
