Istanbul Apartments Istiklal
Ranked #67 of 1,246 Speciality Lodging in Istanbul
Reviewed 10 December 2012

Having been to Taksim before I kind of knew the area and can say that these apartments are perfect for being near the centre. It's just across the road from istiklal/Taksim but not actually on the road so it isn't noisy. It is also right near the metro with access to kabatas and the tram to see the sights in sultanahmet etc. The apartments are cosy and clean, I went when it was quite cold in Istanbul and the apartment was nice and warm which made it feel very homely. The apartment has all the amenities you need and it also has Wifi which is perfect if you have labtop. The staff especially Mahmut was very friendly and helpful. Nothing was a trouble for him and he made sure we had everything we needed. I would definately recommend these apartments for great price and excellent quality and location. I will for sure be coming back here again!

Our buildings are all very much centrally located and still in quiet streets. We sure do not offer any luxury apartments but bu try to give a high class service.

It was me and a friend who was visiting Istanbul for the first time. The apartment was very spacious and furnished with everything you can ask for. We stayed for a week long and Hasan and Mahmut were very friendly. They helped us with our questions & requests. I really recommend this place if you are visiting because it was walking distance to pretty much everywhere. Especially Istiklal street (Las ramblas of Istanbul where you can find shops &restaurants) Also due to location, subway is right there so you can go crazy with exploring the city :)

I would definitely stay again during my next trip!

Thanks Istanbul Apartments!!

Room Tip: Apartment "Galata" was really spacious.

Well, if one can be objective, Istiklal is definitely better than Las ramblas of Barcelona in many ways. Well still our job is to give the service possible to our guests

I came with my girlfriend to Istanbul this summer from New York for the first time. We first stayed in Istanbul and then went on a boat trip in the south and came back and stayed at Istanbul Apartments again. The owner of the hotel is a very sweet couple named Necdet and Ayse who were both very friendly. They gave us grate advice on what to see and where to eat in the city. They were also very accommodating with our needs. They arranged a car service to pick us up from the airport, gave us options on different rooms we could stay in that fit our needs as well. The rooms were very clean and comfortable. The location of the hotel was also great as it was only a few minutes walking distance to Istiklal street (in the center of the city). It is also very easy to get to the old city from Taksim (you can either walk or take the tram. The walk is very pleasant and I would recommend it).
We also met Hassan and Mamut who work at the hotel who were both very helpful and nice. They helped us with navigating around the city and they lived very close to our hotel so whenever we needed help they were able to get to our room within minutes.They were pretty fluent in English so we didn't have too much of a language barrier.

I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone, not only because it is clean and nice but also because of the superior service it offers. Clearly Necdet and Ayse understand the needs of their customers and are both very accommodating.

Room Tip: Sorry no swimming pool accidentally clicked on it and can't remove the stars.

A lot of the old housing has been ripped down to rebuild much better ones. Naturally this causes temporary problems but our apartments are not affected. Taksim will look much better in the near future.

Stayed 33 days in their TAXIM apartment at Pelesenk Sokak 10. Oct./Nov. 2012. The location is fantastic, just across the road from Istiklal Cad. and 2-3 minutes to TAKSIM. The apartment is adequate for a couple and an additional person. Mahmut and Hasan were friendly and whatever minor issues that came up, they were resolved quickly. Defiinately satisfied and would recommend for short or long stay.

My family (3 children, my wife and me, stayed at the Pera apartment for 15 days during the Chess Olympiad in Istanbul 2012, and found that this was the perfect location for us. From Taksim you can reach every corner of Istanbul rather easily. This apartment has a roof terrace where my wife and I loved to spend the late evenings after the children had went to sleep.

The apartment is spread on two floors, and has air condition which works effectively in the top floor. There is plenty of space for 5 people, and it has two bedrooms, bathroom with shower, kitchen with refridgerator and a gas cooker, and a washing machine. We agreed with the landlord that every third day the apartment was cleaned. Some of the furniture was quite old and fragile, and we were worried that the children might cause any damage to it, but luckily that did not happen. The grocery shops in the area are open at all hours.

The landlord was very helpful, and arranged it so we was picked up at and returned to the airport. All the staff spoke English quite well and helped us whenever we needed. They will happily provide local SIM-cards, transportation cards for bus/trains/ferries, or just practical information, on request.

We thrive to give a higher level of service to our guests such as supplying them mobile phones with local sim card, metro pass etc, something our competitor do not do.

My family stayed at Byzantium for about two months and Pera for one week. The staff were super accommodating for everything that was missing or needed. They went above and beyond to take care of all requests. The locations were near everything my family wanted to see.
