Be careful – the apartment you are booking based on the photo you see might not be the one you will get when you pay and arrive. Before we came, I personally sent two mails to Mr. Kivanc, the owner, insisting to get the apt I saw on webpage and pasted copied picture from the web page two times. But when we arrived at 2 in the morning with a small child, the man in charge took us to the neighbouring building and put us in the flat that I would never choose if a saw it on the picture. When we contacted Mr. Kivanc, he told me that he has 8 apartments in 2 buildings next to each other and “the one that he gave us is recently renovated and better than the one we chose”. I will never know what is the other one like but the situation in this “better” apartment was like this: it is decorated with taste, it might look nice at the first glance but the bathroom had bed smell coming from the drainage (all the time, you have to keep doors closed), toilet bowl was dirty, toilet seat broken, bed sheet had few stains, blankets felt like they get washed maybe once a month (if that much), the stairways are extremely narrow, steep and dangerous (when I complaint about the stairways, Mr. Kivanc told me that they are the same in the other building). And on the top of it all – as few other people wrote in comments – once when you pay in advance it becomes very hard to reach the owner, he is not replying to emails and calls. I only heard from him when he guessed (well) that I will write comment that corresponds to the truth. Mr. Kivanc is a sweet talker but made us wish to run away from the apartment he rented us as soon as possible and we would (if we did not have to pay in advance). I wish Mr. Kivanc all the best in his future work but he is obviously overwhelmed with work and it made him forget that it is about the his guests feeling well, not just making money.
Perfect place close to the Subway, City centre, Bazaar you name it, we walked to all the great tourist places and back without any trouble.
The place looks great i will recommend it to all my friends and family and push them to go to Istanbul!
Just one thing, it would be great to have up to date metro, train, ferry and tram maps in the apartment because as we found out the public transport network is extremely well and has been expended so much the last year/s that all the maps we found where out of date, get a Istanbul pass and hop on hop of every where when you are tired of walking.
Hôte très gentil et très serviable
We enjoyed our trip to Istanbul very much and were very happy with the apartment. Everything was fine and clean and we can definitelly recommend the apartment. Thanks for everything and all the informations!

Sehr netter Gastgeber! Tolle Wohnung und super Lage. Der Hausmeister ist auch sehr nett :) empfehle jeden diese Wohnung weiter. Danke Kivanc
Sehr schöne und saubere Wohnung mit einer super Lage.
very friendly host, excellent location, very clean flt and fully equipped! I can easily say this was one of the best places I have stayed in Istanbul. Will definitely come back!
All the best
Kivanc was very nice and the flat was fine on the whole. The radiators do not work, so in winter (when I was there) it was cold unless you turned the air-conditioning on (not ideal overnight).
The biggest problem is that when I arrived, I had been double-booked so I had to spend the first night in a smaller flat across the road. Not a great crisis but a common occurrence in this city where people who rent out flats will often promise more than they can deliver.
I would happily stay there again but would double check the booking with Kivanc before arriving.
It was ab absolute pleasure staying with you. I had a great time. Loved Istambul. The apartment was very clean and beautiful, and very close to the markets and Istaklal street. It was my first trip to Istambul and you were a great host, you guided me very well and took me around. The guy who works for you is verryyyy cute, sweeeet and helpful. I was very impressed to see your knowledge specially for my country. Loved the stay. Hope to see you soon. :)
Kivanc is a very nice man, help you for all what you need; the place I rented was nice, clean secured, with all commodities, and not far from the center (5 mn to walk to Galata tower). I recommand this place to have a nice time in Istanbul! Valérie
