Das Zimmer könnte sehr schön sein, wenn es eine kleine Ablagefläche gäbe oder einige Haken in der Wand. Vom Flur gehen Dusche und WC für insgesamt 4 DZ Zimmer ab. Das WC riecht streng. Die Küchennische ist mit einem Wasserkocher ausgestattet und es gibt 7-8 Becher und 1 Glas. Ein Becher voll verschiedener Bestecke, kein Küchenhandtuch. Einmal in der Woche wurde der Müll entsorgt. Von der Dachterrasse aus gibt es einen schönen Blick über Stadt und Bosporus. Die Lage der Wohnung ist 1. Klasse. Doch zu unserer gleich eingangs verabredeten Abreisezeit war die Vermieterin leider nicht auffindbar. So bekamen wir auch unsere 20 € Kaution nicht zurück. Vielleicht wird uns das Geld noch überwiesen? Auf unsere email Anfrage von zu Hause aus wurde schnell mit entsprechender Zusage reagiert. Insgesamt: Schade, sie könnte so schön sein, die Wohnung/das Zimmer!
Nice style of the flat with the brickwalls, which is located in cosy and trendy Tünel quarter nearby Galata tower. We liked the quarter very much. When it is cold outside than be prepared, it is cold in the flat also, but at least hot shower is working ;-) I would recommend the flat to people who have no problems with smoking in it. Only to ask for a doublebed is not enough I experienced, I would recommend to ask for the real size. There is at least one bed with approximately 1,2m wideness which in my opinion is not sufficient for two persons and far away to be called and offered as doublebed. I tried hard it but sufferd with my 1,9m bodyheight three nights before we could change to another nicer room with a real doublebed. The by some people described scary stairway was no problem for us. But indeed, it´s not a villa style. The other visitors of the rooms in the flat were kindly and open minded people as we hoped to meet.
The appartemnet is well situated. Close to the old town.
The view from de terrace on the roof is top!
The rooms are minimal but ok. The only (little) table had only 3 legs instead of 4.
The kitchen was dirty and there were not enough plates and mugs for 6 persons.
The cookware was dirty, incomplete or broke.
The shower has good and enough hot water. Shower was not clean. The showerstand was broke.
Toilet oke but when we arrived there was a very smelly and dirty bucket with old dirty water in it.
The terrace makes the appartment worth to go back to this place.
top view. amazing building. very friendly hosts.
Because the rooms in this house were full Tamuna gave us a room in the opposite building. Advantage was the wonderful terrace with a fantastic view over the Bosporus. Our room had a nice view and the bed was good. For the rest we had the same experience as Eddy. A lot of small technical problems that could have been solved easily and rooms that could be cleaned better. It was disappointing that Tamuna did not react on our complaints.
Conclusion: very nice apartments, super location but it is disappointing that you have to accept the disadvantages of “authentic” rooms ….
Very nice apartment with beautiful rustic renovation. Beds were good with clean linen. Terrace with a fantastic view. Very close to all important places.
Furniture was in bad condition (broken doors of cupboard, the small table in the bigger bedroom had only three of four legs!). The rooms were not very clean (dust in and on furniture and very old/dirty rugs). The Kitchen is very small and was also dirty. Dirty shower and closet. Towel holder and toilet paper holder were damaged. The broken shower head sprayed water out of all possible holes and its bracket was also damaged.
One incident was very disturbing for us. That was when a renter of another apartment came at night and opened our apartment door with his keys and asked us if we have the keys to the roof terrace.
All-in-all it was a nice stay. But for this rental, in my opinion it should be possible to eliminate most of the defects.
the room I booked was not available so I got a bigger doublebed room with a great view on the Galata Tower.
Nice host Tamuna (Thanks again ! ), great shower and fast internet.
What more could a weary traveller want ?
A really pleasant few days.
Tamuna met us promptly, provided a beautifully turned out apartment (5 bedrooms, all to ourselves), with Bosphorus views and a roof terrace for eating breakfast and early morning exercises...
Top recommendations also from Tamuna on local fresh fish and a Hammam in north Taksim where we had a round trip in a taxi and a good couple of hours of massage, scrub and unwind for about £20 each.
Things to improve - a lock on the bathroom door!
We had a nice stay in the room with nice window over Bosporen.
GREAT view to town and Bosporus, nice rooms, but bathroom is separate from room.
