Ibrahim is a very friendly host. We checked out early in the morning and he was there to help us and booked a taxi for us. The flat is just near the Galata Tower and has easy access to shops and restaurants. The view is so stunning that it is relaxing to have a rest and enjoy the view on the balcony.
Without reading through other reviews, only by looking at view of this apartment, I made the decision straight away to book it. Everything was exceptional, ibrahim has been a super host who always response within a few minutes, he even guided us how to get to the apartment from Sabiha Gökçen International Airport, which is a bit far from the city. He waited for us at the Galata Tower, as I just walked out the taxi, I see a guy with big smiling face awaiting for us already. :))) The apartment itself is amazing, I don't think you can get such a beautiful view from anywhere else in Istanbul. We felt very lucky to found this place. The area where the apartment is located is super cool too, loads of shops for shopping, Doner Kebab in every corner of the street, also there's a few nice restaurants. From the apartment it's less than 10 mins walk to Galata Bridge, pier and tram station. Trust me, you won't regret a min to stay at this place. Enjoy Istanbul, and thanks again for hosting us ibrahim.
10 stars. I cannot recommend this flat enough!! Our stay was amazing. Starting with our excellent host Ibriham. From meeting us at Galata tower through check out, he made everything so easy and genuinely cared. The hospitality alone made us want to return. The flat itself was spacious and clean, however, the view is what you should come for. I could sit in that living room for hours staring at the Bosphorus strait and watching the ships. The beds were comfy, and it had beautiful towels too. The neighborhood was perfect, located in Galata, right above Karaköy. The area felt very safe and has many shops & cafes in the surrounding streets. A great restaurant up the hill is "Güney". Also the best baclava in Istanbul is a 6 minute walk, so spoiled with the location. Galata is hilly so if you have problems walking maybe you find that a bit difficult. The flat will give you a very authentic feel of Istanbul. The views, yes, but the hospitality that thrives in this city is so well experienced in this AirBB. Trust me, it's great.
