We had a mixed experience with this stay, but on the whole it was quite satisfactory. Saban arranged transfers from the airport, & after letting him know our flight was delayed we were met accordingly-thanks Saban! We weren't, however, delivered to our booked accommodation but to an alternative. We we're told that there were some repairs being done & that we would be taken there the next day. We subsequently found that our room had been double-booked. The alternative accommodation was ok, similar location & very clean. The following day we were taken to our booked room only to find later it wasn't the one we booked. Again the room was very clean, comfortable, plenty of hot water & good location (there are some great seafood restaurants nearby very reasonably priced). The grand bazaar is not far, but a climb up the hill. Saban was very gracious in acknowledging the errors & arranged our shuttle to the airport at no cost. Even though it wasn't the experience we originally booked, the accommodations & encounter with Saban & Mohammad were positive & recommendable.
Our stay was fantastic, Saban has been very helpful, we have felt like home. Highly recommended.
At first we had some problems with keys, hot water and double bookings, but Saban is a serviceminded host and we solved them out along the way. The apartment had a high standard and the beds were top! Note: We did not stay at this apartement due to a booking error, but a similar one in the same area...
This is a great appartment very clean inside and its cleaned very well every day. Saban is very helpful and I would recommend this appartment. Good for the value within easy walking fistance to the Sultanhmet..
The apartment is in a great location, maybe a ten minute walk from the Sultanahmet sites, and near a large number of restaurants in the Kumkapi neighborhood. It was very easy to get taxis to and from, as it is a well known area, and very close to the main road along the water, so easy in rush hour too. Clean and quiet, but in a local neighborhood (which I consider a good thing), not a tourist area. Saban is very nice and helpful, also arranging transportation to and from the airport. I'll be back next time I go to Istanbul!
The studio is in a brilliant location for exploring the old town, visiting the main tourist attractions on foot and is close to the water-front. It is also surprisingly quiet. The painting of the studio and the entrance stair has been done by a craftsman and the fittings are good quality. The shower is spacious and provides plenty hot water. The balcony is small with a restricted view but enough to sit outside and watch life in the street. The kitchen area is small but was plenty for our needs. With a cleaning lady coming in daily it is more like a good hotel.
We had a great time in Istanbul. Transfer was perfectly organised and we had a warm welcome from Saban. The appartment was very charming decorated, very clean, maked by a lovely lady every day (cleaned, new towels etc).
The only thing you need to know is, that the way from the appartment to the sights (grand basar, blue moschee and tramway also) is 400 m uphill! So don't forget sneakers! :-)
We enjoyed our stay in Istanbul. The suite is small, but well equipped (however there are many restaurants, bakerys, small shops very nearby) very clean and nicely situated in a lively neighbourhood.
We had a really nice stay in Istanbul for four nights in Sabans apartment!
It is only a steep street you have to walk when you want to get to the "Grand Bazar" and train station "Beyazit".. its about 10 minutes to walk.
The apartment was always clean and Saban was very kind and gave us a city map and told us the best ways to get to the highlights of this really stunning city.
The apartment is better for “younger“ people without limp, because the staircase is narrow with high steps, but this wasnt a problem for us :-)
We are sure we will come back! :-)
Saban is very nice and the flat is exactly as described, no surprise. We are very happy, excellent value for money. Close to 2 supermarkets and historical places, it is well located and in a pleasant borough.
No negative points ;-)
