A nice rug buying experience for those who are not used to haggling. In my goal to buy a rug in Istanbul I wanted choice and to be able to choose calmly. Not interested so much in getting the greatest bargain in the Grand Bazaar,...More
The owner is so very helpful and genuinely wants you to be pleased with your purchase. She is honest and knows a lot about her business. Did not pressure us at all to buy, but we of course did because her collection is so beautiful!!...More
We live in Istanbul and we recently bought two beautiful Kilims at Hazal in Ortaköy. Prior to visiting Engin and Ahmet’s place we had seen a couple other carpet stores in Istanbul which turned out to be unpleasant haggling experiences.
Our time at Hazal was...More
My husband and I were in Istanbul for only a few short days and I could not be more grateful that we found this incredible spot. This beautiful shop is a far cry from the overwhelming rug shopping of the Grand Bazar. We were lucky...More
Vi fandt denne Kilim tæppeforhandler gennem Tripadvisor, og den lever i den grad op til sin vurdering. Når man kommer ind bliver man mødt af personale som ikke har den "aggressive" tilgang som man typisk møder i Istanbul.
Her får man en service som er...More
If you are looking for a kilim and an education in Anatolian kilims, look no further than Hazal Hali. Engin, one of the owners, is a delight to chat with and she is incredibly patient while pulling out kilim after kilim and explaining the intricate...More
I found the perfect kilims after spending quite some time with Engin. She was very helpful and transparent about the prices. She understood what i was looking for in terms of taste and budget. I truly recommend everyone to enter this peaceful, chic and quiet...More
My wife and I spent a delightful two hours with Engin in her shop in the Ortakoy neighborhood of Istanbul last month. The selections of kilims and carpets is outstanding, but we were there on a pillow mission. She has a wonderful assortment of fabric...More
In Besiktas, skyscrapers compete with palaces for space in an upscale vista replete with hilly green parkland filling in the margins. Step into this rather wealthy neighbourhood and discover a rich mix of opportunities to shop, dine, and be entertained. For folks in search of urban buzz, not to mention a constant reminder of just how important Istanbul’s waterways are to its rich history, there's the
frenetic Besiktas ferry terminal or the city’s most vibrant fish market to explore. For a timeout of metropolitan proportions, head to the bucolic Yildiz Park or the chic Bosphorus-side fishing village of Ortakoy. Attractions such as the grandiose Dolmabahce Palace and a bevy of other stately residences await admiration. To be sure, this large and not overly touristy swath of Istanbul yields plenty of pleasure for all.
