We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Istanbul, not least due to our accommodation. Mete and Ozlem's apartment is perfectly located, on a quiet street but less than five minutes from the Blue Mosque, Agia Sofya and the Bosphorus. There are also dozens of restaurants to choose from within a short stroll. The apartment is small, but quite adequately sized for a couple (two more could be accommodated on the sofa-bed in the living room, but I think that would be a bit of a squash).
The apartment has obviously been renovated and refurnished in the fairly recent past - mostly from Ikea I'd say, and nothing wrong with that! Everything was spotlessly clean on arrival. The living room has a large TV with DVD and satellite, although the only English-language channel is Al-Jazeera news. We didn't come to Istanbul to watch telly, so that wasn't an issue for us. More importantly, there's a reliable and reasonably fast Wifi signal.
The bedroom is small - it has a double bed and wardrobe, and no room for much else. Reading lamps on both sides of the bed, which is always useful. The kitchen is well equipped; no oven, but microwave, dishwasher, washing machine and hob, plus an adequate supply of cutlery and crockery. Lots of cleaning stuff under the sink, although some cleaning cloths for wiping down surfaces etc. would have helped.
The bathroom is a wet room, with an OK shower (not the strongest water pressure, but adequate and temperature controls worked well). Outside is a nice little terrace, with views of the Bosphorus to the right and the minarets of the Blue Mosque to the left, and a plastic table and chairs for al fresco eating and drinking.
We never met the owners, but on the phone and (before our arrival) via email they seemed pleasant and helpful. They arranged our transfers from and to the airport (60TL each way - a bit more than a taxi but a lot more comfortable and convenient) which was in a large people-mover, with very pleasant driver who also let us in and showed us round the apartment on arrival.
If you're looking for luxury then this apartment isn't for you, but it's clean and comfortable, and for location and value for money I doubt there's anything better to be found in Istanbul for a short stay.
Nous y somme allés avec nos deux petites filles et nous y avons été comme à la maison. L'appartement est très propre et tout y est. La terrasse est incroyablement grande et la vue très jolie : d'un côté sur le bosphore et de l'autre sur la mosquée bleue. Nous avions tout à proximité : les sites les plus importants comme la mosquée bleure, Ste Sophie, Topkapi que nous rejoignions à pied, sans compter les bazars, le tramway, les restaurants et les épiceries au pied de l'immeuble. Le propriétaire est disponible et très aimable et sur son conseil, nous avons pris les service de son cousin pour le transfert depuis l'aéroport qui nous a tout expliqué dans les moindres détails et ce, toujours avec le sourire.
Je vous recommande donc vivement cette transaction très agréable et sans mauvaise surprise
Nous avons passés deux semaines extraordinaires dans ce bel appartement, très confortable, propre et bien chauffé.
Très bien placé dans le quartier de Sultan Ahmet, cet appartement se situe près de la mosquée Bleue et de Aya Sofia, à deux pas du tramway que nous avons pris tous les jours avec la « Istanbul Card ».
L’accueil de Mete et de Kubilay son cousin a été charmant et nous ne manquerons pas de recommander cet endroit à tous nos amis qui veulent venir découvrir la magnifique ville d’Istanbul.

We passed two extraordinary weeks in this beautiful apartment, very comfortable clean and well warmed. Very well placed in the district of Sultan Ahmet, this apartment is situated near the Blue mosque and near Aya Sofia, just a step from the tramway which we took every day with "Istanbul Card". The welcome of Mete and Kubilay his cousin was charming and we shall not miss to recommend this place to all our friends who want to come to discover the magnificent city of Istanbul.

We are leaving this apartment after a week of pure pleasure. The apartment is spotlessly clean, all new windows, appliances, furniture, etc., make it a pleasure. It is VERY simple, but fine. Our pick up from the airport was flawless - even at 2 AM! Everything works perfectly and the views are stunning. Just two blocks away is a trendy, bustling neighborhood full of restaurants, shops, etc., but the apartment is VERY quiet and feels remote, safe and private. Major monuments a stroll away.
The little shop on the corner has essentials and is convenient.
It is a third-floor walk-up, but do-able if you are at all fit. We are 66 and 71 and had no trouble. The place next door to the shop, Yume, will arrange tours. Remzi is charming, has great English, and knows his stuff.
Owner and manager are WONDERFUL, responsive and helpful - even though we stupidly locked ourselves out on the balcony and they had to bring a locksmith. They were lovely about it.
Wifi is spectacularly good. Remist restaurant - at the end of our street past all the other restaurants, is really good, inexpensive and has a nice vibe.
Highly recommended. You will LOVE Turkey!
Mete's apartment is right in the heart of the Sultanahmet, with a rooftop terrace giving views of the Sea of Marmera in one direction and the Blue Mosque in the other, the call to prayer from the Blue Mosque is really beautiful to listen to. Over the road is a small convenience store for beer and groceries, and just around the corner are a hundred restaurants with pavement seating. We are a retired couple who have just spent 2 great weeks in the apartment and enjoyed it immensely.
Althoughwe did not meet Mete we found him to be more than helpful with information and calling reliable cabs.
Waving to other tourists from your private rooftop patio makes them mad with jealousy. The Blue Mosque is visible, as is the Sea of Marmara. To get to the tram line, walk between the Blue Mosque and Haghia Sophia and keep going till you see the tracks on Yivan Dolu. Takes 5 minutes. Stovetop (no oven), microwave, dishwasher, small fridge with mini-freezer, washing machine, fast Internet, comfortable bed, a million TV channels (only Al-Jazeera International is in English; listening to Turkish is more fun anyway.). Mete is a busy guy, but he delivers.
