The apartment has a reasonable sized double bedroom, well equipped kitchen and open plan sitting room, nicely decorated with comfortable furniture. Good quality, easily operated washing machine and tumble drier in small utility room, which was really useful. The location in up and coming Cihangir is perfect - 5 mins down a steep flight of steps to the tram stop, 15 minutes walk to good selection of small restaurants and shops. Although this is a ground floor apartment, we did not find the location noisy. Idil, the owner was very helpful - met us from the coach stop in Taksim and gave us a short walking tour of the area on our way back to the apartment. She kept in touch during our stay there to make sure that any questions or problems could be dealt with promptly., The apartment also has some very useful guidebooks and a book of local restaurants, many of which we tried out. We were at the apartment for 9 days and would definitely like to stay there again in future.
