“Excellent, Budget-Friendly Hotel Apartment”
Reviewed 13 May 2014

Location is perfect and safe to walk even at night; 5 minutes walking distance to Blue Mosque, Hippodrome, Hagia Sofia, Topkapi Palace and Basilica Cistern. And 20 minutes to Grand Bazaar. There are restaurants, tourist shops, exchange centres nearby. We met Hakan on the late night (11:30 PM) we arrived. He was friendly and customer-oriented person. Gurkan (the owner) had been in constant communication with us from the day we booked the 2 bedroom deluxe apartments on booking.com until we checked-out. The only downside is, the morning prayer which is too loud, so, really, bring your own ear plugs, otherwise, highly recommended and economical. Rooms are clean; bath towels, face towels, disposable slippers, soaps were provided. There is hot/cold water. The kitchen is equipped with kettle, fridge, cupboards, etc. Just a note, there is only 1 bathroom in a 2 bedroom deluxe apartment.

Прекрасные апартаменты в самом сердце Султанахмета за Голубой мечетью.
Очень радушные и гостеприимные владельцы. трансфер с аэпорта и в аэропорт по очень хорошим расценкам . Квартира очень чистая, есть все необходимое. Для семьи из 5 человек была очень подходящая. Обязательно остановимся там в следующий раз! Спасибо огромное - Hakan, Gurkan!

Wonderful apartments in the heart of Sultanahmed, behind the Blue Mosque. Very welcoming and friendly owners. Reasonable transfer fare to and from the airport. Clean and neat apartment with everything we needed. It was great for family of 5. We would stay there again! Thank you very much Hakan and Gurkan.

דירה מקסימה בלב שכונת סולטנאחמד, מאחורי המסגד הכחול. בעלי דירה נחמדים ויעילים. תעריף הסעה לשדה התעופה (הלוך ושוב) היו הוגנים. הדירה הייתה נקייה ומצויידת בכל מה שצריך. מתאימה למשפחה של 5 אנשים. אנחנו נגיע לשם שוב. תודה רבה לבעלים!

The deluxe studio was on the 2nd floor, very private as there's only one apartment on that floor and very secured. The staffs were helpful with our luggages. The studio was new, modern, comfortable and cosy enough for family of 5. The kitchen was adequately furnished that we had good time cooking fresh fish and vegies bought from Kardikoy Fish Market and newby store. The view of the Blue Mosque from the balcony was breathtaking. The studio was right behind the Blue Mosque, 2 minutes walk up the coblestone street is the Hippodrome that leads to all the attraction of Sultanahmet Park. 5 minutes walk is the Sultanahmet tram station that takes you to everywhere else in Istanbul. But, most of the time we just walked to most of the attractions, to only come back in the evening and update our facebook, upload photoes and check emails using the WiFi provided in the studio. On X'mas we had requested for Mr Gurkan to arrange for car and driver to Uludug Ski Park for a day trip, which was very reasonably charged as compared to other tour operators. We truly enjoy our 8 night stay at the Flamingo and had very memorable holiday in Istanbul

Room Tip: The apartments located on the annex building are new and closer to the hippodrome and blue mosqe

The staff of Flamingo apart were very kind and flexible to make our stay nice. One time I face a problem and they came immediately to fix it.

The location is great. Close to the blue Mosque and other major attactions as well as good restaurent. We had two newly furnished apartment which suited us well. Even the internet was faster than you expect at most hotels. Also, they provided fair prices for airport pick up.

I would defiantly stay there again if visiting Istanbul.
