Cozy apartment at the very heart of Taksim. Great comfort, great light with everything to explore within reach!
Brilliant Stay at Zeynep's place, in the heart of Istanbul, great location if you want to travel to various parts of city, metro is close by, as are shops, bars, restaurants, whether you want the full tourist experience or to explore the other parts of the city they are with walking or metro distance.
Zeynep's home was wonderful and perfectly situated to explore Istanbul! It was only a short walk to take the tram/metro to explore other areas outside of Beyoglu (which we loved!). The only heads-up I would say is to be aware that her place is on a pretty busy street near Taksim Square which could get loud some nights. We expected that as we were somewhat familiar with the area and we were out until late most nights anyways. It was 100% worth it for the great location, and we would definitely stay there again.
We had a wonderful stay at Zeynep's place. The apartment is clean, really spacious and light, with a comfy bed and great shower. It has everything you need and is exactly as described. The location is brilliant, right in the heart of Taksim and just off of the main Istiklal Street. It's a really vibrant and buzzing area, with lots of great shopping, eating and drinking spots, some of which Zeynep was kind enough to recommend during our trip. We didn't meet Zeynep, but she was a super helpful host, arranged a hassle free key collection for the apartment and was happy to answer any questions throughout our stay. Highly recommended!
I have returned from a wonderful 1 week trip from Istanbul where Zeynep's superb apartment has served me well. Zeynep was super polite and responsive and full of helpful tips. Her apartment is huge with amazing high ceilings and lots of natural light. Her profile pictures do not do the place justice. Everything was to my liking and it was definitely value for money. The place was very central and is situated in a busy vibrant street just off of taksim square. Night life seems to go on through to the morning so if you are looking for a quiet stay maybe this isn't the place for you. I found it wasn't an issue as the street noise added to the Turkish ambiance surrounding me. There are lots of local places to buy and eat food and the local metro was 4 minutes walk. Taxi's are also easy to pick up. Zeynep's apartment was clean and homely with fantastic air con, high powered shower, clean towels and bedding. She even went to the trouble of leaving posted notes all around the apartment with helpful tips. Thanks for making my stay perfect
We loved everything about this place. The apartment is huge: tall ceilings, spacious rooms, and huge windows that let in a lot of light. Our host left us some nice breakfast items, bottled water and a bottle of wine to make us feel welcome, and it totally worked! The neighborhood is great because it's so centrally located; we were able to get to where we wanted to go every day very easily because of the apartment's proximity to the Taksim subway stop. It's a very popular neighborhood so it's usually pretty populated at night, but the apartment has such great sound isolation (and is located high up enough) that the sound from the street doesn't reach the apartment's rooms. The couches and bed were really comfy, and the bathroom was clean and equipped with a great, high pressure shower. It was also amazing to have a washer/dryer because after walking around Istanbul every day, we had some sweaty clothes in need of washing! There's also a great DVD collection in case you need a breather from the Istanbul nightlife and want to spend a quiet night at home.
Zeynep hosted me and my friends for a night in her flat. The flat itself was spacious and very well located since my friends were looking to be in the heart of the city. It was in a very vibrant area where many shops, restaurants and supermarkets were located. Perfect place to stay when in Istanbul if you enjoy nightlife and touristic attractions. Although the flat is located in the city and is surrounded by many attractions we were able to chill at home safe and sound. As a host Zeynep was easy to communicate and she has been very welcoming. Thank you!
