Hello, I do not want to miss the opportunity to thank for its exquisite care Saban during my stay in Istanbul. Everything was perfect, the coordination of the transfer of - the airport, the apartment handover and everything I could need. Surely if one day I have the opportunity to return, I count on your help .....
Hola, no quiero dejar pasar la oportunidad de dar las gracias a Saban por su exquisito trato durante mi estancia en Estambul. Todo fue perfecto, la coordinación del transfer del - al aeropuerto, el apartamento, entrega de llaves y todo lo que pude necesitar. Sin duda si algún día tengo la oportunidad de regresar, contaré con su ayuda.....
We never met Saban, but was picked up from the airport as promised, and met outside the house by Saban's friend or employee. Everyone was nice, the room clean and well equipped. It was cleaned every day by a nice woman. To this price, the room was very good, in quite charming surroundings. A slightly unpleasant smell from the bathroom, though.
Great place, next to the very animated at night restaurant section with live music.
House as described, great space. 15 min by foot to Saint Sophie, blue mosk, grand bazaar.
Visit molatasi street next to the flat and try the normal turkish life and food.
well located property with 10-15 mins walk to the centre of Sultanhemet and 10-15 min walk to the nearest tram. very close to local supermarkets, restaurants, fish market and shops. bit tricky to find but call the number provided and they will guide you. We took metro and tram from Ataturk airport and then walked to apartment. The road the apartment is in is opposite "best shoes" shop on the main road and the front door to the block is opposite the front door of the Ottoman tulip hotel. Apartment comfortable and clean, wii fi a bit patchy, water went off for a few hours twice but this is normal for Istanbul. keep kettle filled and spare water. You should enjoy your stay there.
I booked this studio for my parents, they really enjoyed staying there. Saban is a great host and was very kind to help them during their time in Istanbul. It was very tidy and was cleaned every day. Furthermore there was a safe in the room. Everything was very good, thanks again :)
First to be positive: It was all clean, towels and when necessary also sheets were changed daily. The location of the apartment near the center is excellent and the host is very friendly and always helpful
Now the negative: the apartment was announced as free of barriers, suitable for wheelchair, which is a lie. There are three very high steps down to this souterrain-appartment and even after the quick constuction of a ramp by the landlord we still needed a very strong man to get in and out. The bathroom is not accessable by wheelchair either.
The furnishing of the living room and the kitchen is very poor and one of the bedrooms has neiter window nor climatization. But as we luckily had nice weather during our stay we just used the apartment for sleeping and: Istanbul is just wonderful.
We enjoyed our weekend stay in Istanbul and were glad that we chose to stay in this apartment.
The location was conveniently located near (15 minutes walking) many of the major tourist attractions in the historic center of Istanbul. Additionally, it was located within a couple of minutes from a tram stop in case the weather was not conducive to walking. The gentlemen that met us at the apartment to give us the keys were very courteous and waiting for us at the apartment when we arrived. The apartment was as described and perfect for 2 people. The apartment was clean and we definitely appreciated the daily housekeeping service.
As mentioned in other reviews, while not an issue for us, it's worth noting that the stairs leading to the apartment are relatively steep and narrow. All things considered, we would not hesitate to stay at this apartment again if we found ourselves in Istanbul.
We were the end of July a week in Istanbul and have resided in Saban's apartment in the old town. The apartment is highly recommended, clean and well kept, daily maid service, air conditioning. Keys worked without problems. The only shortcoming: the apartment is located at the foot of a steep road, which can be handled on the way to the tram on foot.
Wir waren Ende Juli eine Woche in Istanbul und haben in Sabans Wohnung in der Altstadt gewohnt. Die Wohnung ist sehr zu empfehlen, sauber und gepflegt, täglicher Zimmerservice, Klimaanlage. Schlüsselübergabe hat problemlos geklappt. Einziges kleines Manko: die Wohnung liegt am Fuß einer steilen Straße, die auf dem Weg zur Tram zu Fuß zu bewältigen ist.
Very lovely flat in a great location. It's a little smaller than it looks in the pictures, and the view of the sea is over the top of some rather crumbling rooftops, but neither of those things detracted from our enjoyment. It's a few streets away from the crowds, but only a few minutes' walk from a busy little restaurant area with great food and live music. Saban and Cem were very helpful and responsive. Highly recommended.
We booked this apartment twice, on our way into Turkey and on our way out however we only ended up staying in it once. I will explain further.
We stayed at this studio on the way into Turkey for 4 nights and enjoyed our stay. It is beautifully styled and newly decorated. Meeting Mohamad to pick up the keys was easy and everything was straight forward. This place is a 5 minute walk downhill from Beyazit tram station so the perfect location as well and you can walk to all the major tourist sites. There are supermarkets nearby and the cleaner comes every day, just like a hotel really! A note to the light sleepers out there, it can get noisy at night like any other city with a workshop next door and the rubbish truck coming out at night time so may not be the best option for light sleepers.
After going down to the coast we came back to Istanbul and had booked this apartment again. We had asked Mohamad if we could check into this apartment early and he said we could but we would have to come near to their office to get the keys. We went to meet them on our arrival and he sent Saban to meet us who didn't turn up for 50 minutes. I had to keep sending international text messages to find out what was going on. We were annoyed to say the least seeing as it was our last night in Turkey and they had really wasted our time. When he turned up he said that our apartment wasn't ready (when Mohamad had said it would be) and that he could take us to another apartment. This made us even more annoyed because we wanted the one we had booked. Since we didn't have much time and they had already wasted our time we went to the other apartment which was close to the Blue Mosque. Although bigger than Duzgun Sk 10, it wasn't nearly as nice as that one in my opinion. Later on that evening we were trying to prepare dinner and the cooker wasn't working either. There was no gas at all. I think another reviewer has written about a similar experience. On this second occasion the service was very poor indeed. Their communication skills needs to improve as well although it may be a language barrier but from dealing with Mohamad his English is very good. So a word of warning: Make sure you get taken to the apartment you actually booked! These guys would have been given 5 stars if this hadn't happened and we had stayed at our original apartment and checked in early as we requested.
