Reviewed 5 May 2010

very nice apartment ,spacy ,close to the centre but so quiet(wich is dificult to find in istanbul) the other thing dificult to find in thecity is someone to speak english decently and the guy who runs the hotel does speake fluently and is very kind and helpfull he ll tell u all you need to know.
dont trust the taxi drivers unless you call it from the hotel and allways be carefull with what they charge you in touristic places.

We arrived in Istanbul at 20 minutes past midnight and found that our luggage had not accompanied us. Understandably very upset, we left the airport fully expecting our transport to have left without us. Not so! There was a happily smiling face holding an Istanbul Apt. sign, who whipped us away to the apartment where Hasan was waiting to greet us, give us crackers and coffee, and wish us a good night. This would have been well after 1.00am. Amazing! We used this transit service when we went to and returned from Cappadocia, and again when we left Istanbul. The drivers were consistently friendly and always on time.
Our apartment was everything the site had promised. The rooms are newly decorated with nice furniture and although the rooms are small, they are squeaky clean, the bed is wonderfully comfortable, there are bedside lights, drawers and hanging cupboards. The lounge had a flatscreen TV. The bathroom has a great shower. The kitchen has everything you could wish for. When we asked for a teapot to make Turkish tea, Necdet produced one. When we required an alarm clock for an early morning flight to Cappadocia, one was bought for our use. Nothing was too much trouble for this helpful couple, Necdet and Ayse, and their helpers Lale and Hasan. They were a great source of information about how to get places, where to eat, what to see and do. At the end of every day, they were there eager to hear about our experiences.
The apartment is in the heart of Beyoglu which is where all the best restaurants and millions of other eateries are, and is close to Taksim Square where the Funicular starts, as well as where many busses have their terminus. Istiklal (the main, carless, promenade) is 2 minutes away. We had great fun walking up and down just people watching.
Necdet followed up on our luggage, phoning regularly to see where things were at, and it was delivered to the apartment the following evening. We cannot speak highly enough of the service we received from these wonderful people, They went out of their way to make our stay as hassle free and comfortable as possible - and succeeded impressively. On a scale of 1 to 5 - definately a 5. I teach service Management to MBAs- a lot simpler would be to tell them to personally experience excellent service by staying at Istanbul Apartments.

The location is extraordinary in that it is within easy walking distance of all the major sights or tpn to these sights. The hosts are thoughtful, helpful and a delight to be with.
Our three week trip to the Mid-east and Paris had this stay in Istanbul as the highlight of our trip. We will obviously recommend Istanbul Apartments to any of our friends who are fortunate enough to travel to Turkey/Istanbul and we plan to return to this wonderful city and this wonderful accommodation again in the near future.

The location is excellent and the hosts really try their best to accommodate their guests. I would have a couple of minor suggestions to the owner but when I see him next time because it's nothing too important. I would only suggest here an even better internet (to work in every room).

Located about 10 minutes walk from Taksim where you can board funicular to metro, historic tramway or subway system and yet 5 minutes from Istiklal street so it is quiet, this apartment is in a great location. It has all the amenities you need and while not large is certainly adequate. The only minor suggestion I could make would be to have a welcoming bottle of water when you first arrive but that is a very minor thing. A nice clean place in a safe, quiet area and run by helpful nice people. Room was as pictured and having a washing machine to use was certainly handy by the end of the week.

If you wish to stay in the liveliest spot in Istanbul, then stay in Taksim. And if you're in Taksim, your best value and experience for your money will be in the Istanbul Apartments. Great location. Great service. Great rooms. Great price. I sincerely recommend Istanabul Apartments to all travelers whether you stay one day or one year. We stayed one month and were very, very sorry to leave! I must also note that our small dog was welcome to stay with us (a rare thing in Istanbul) and he was treated like a prince by management :-) When I mentioned that I needed an extra suitcase for my trip home (we bought lots of cool stuff), 10 minutes later management brought me a suitcase (and I didn't even ask!). It's the small details that provide the greatest comforts.
