We stayed (7 adults plus one baby) for two weeks over New Year's. Photos are accurate -- The apartment is roomy, clean and well appointed -- even had a high chair and play pen. There is endless hot water, and the heating system kept the apartment nice and cozy even when it snowed. The neighborhood is quiet, and it is just a short walk to the Blue Mosque and the tram. Wifi worked great. Marco was right there to meet us and answer questions. When we had trouble operating the dryer and called, someone came over immediately to take care of it. We did not find street noise a problem, but we didn't want to open the windows in January anyway! The front bedroom does get a
sound from the stairwell, but this was a very minor issue. Would whole heartedly recommend.
7 family members stayed in this apartment comfortably for 6 nights. The apartment was very nice, centrally located and truly walking distance to the entire Old City attractions. The only negative was that the front bedroom was very noisy. This apartment is located on a street corner with vehicular traffic all night long. Cars would come up the hill and honk their horn when making a hard left turn instead of breaking. We had to use earplugs. Also, there is a small restaurant across the street that was noisy until after midnight. The weather was beautiful but we couldn't sleep with the windows open due to the noise.
The call to prayer was not a big deal at all. It actually added to the charm of Istanbul.
We had a great week and hopefully be back.
8 family members and I stayed in this apartment in April 2012. The apartment was very clean and spacious enough to meet our needs. It is located in a quiet neighborhood about 10 minutes walking to the Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia. There are a few coffee shops and restaurants around the corner and a laundry service next door. The owner met us at the apartment and he was very nice and informative in regards to the surrounding area. I would stay here again and I am giving it a big thumbs up!!!
