“Great location and space”
Reviewed 12 June 2013 for a stay in May 2013

Friends found this apartment on the internet. Their research paid off. The two bedroom apartment is right next to the Sishane metro station and is easily reached via bus metro or taxi. The apartment is on the third floor and fortunately there is a service lift that can accommodate 2 people and a suitcase or 2 suitcases and 1 person - it is small but works OK. The apartment is comfortable. The bedroom on the street side is a little noisy but is much quieter after 10 pm. There is excellent quality WiFi. The manager provides bottled drinking water and was kind enough to stock the refrigerator with some basic foods and filter coffee. There is an excellent restaurant next to the building called Big Chefs - breakfast is good and well priced. Location is excellent a few minutes from the cable car that takes you down to the tram line along which nearly all the important sights are accessible by. Galata Tower is 10 minutes away as are a fantastic collection of good quality restaurants.
If I come to Istanbul again I would be happy to stay here again.

“Outstanding Apartment”
Reviewed 12 June 2013 for a stay in June 2013

This is one of the very best apartments I have ever used during many trips around the world. All descriptions of this apartment are true and accurate. The amenities offered within the apartment are great. Very strong and reliable WiFi provides occupants with excellent communication via email and internet access.
The kitchen gives an opportunity to prepare meals and "eat in" after a busy day of seeing the wonderful sights of Istanbul.
The hot water and water pressure in the shower again makes "cleaning up" very refreshing.
Location, location, location! Looking out the windows of the living room and one of the bedrooms at the Galata Tower is fantastic...especially at night when it is illuminated. Also, mass transit, food shopping, ATMs, etc. are very convenient.
The landlord for this property is outstanding and willing to help guests with any of their needs.
I just completed the first week of a two weeks stay in this apartment and now am looking forward to the second week.
I give this apartment my highest recommendation.

“Fabulous and Comforting Holidays”
Reviewed 28 May 2013 for a stay in May 2013

We have just returned from Istanbul after 8 days stay in the apartment. We have two children 14 and 3 years old and a friend also joined us during our stay. The apartment was spacious, well located to suit both the cultural and historic visits during our stay. The lift and air conditioning was an added perk as we were accompanied with small children. Izel, the host has been extremely helpful and would go out of the way in guiding us to find our way in the city.
I certainly would use this apartment again and will also recommend to my friends visiting Istanbul.

“Loved our place in Istanbul!”
Reviewed 23 May 2013 for a stay in April 2013

Izel took such good care of us and the apartment was spacious, pretty, and clean. Nice view of the tower, easy to walk to the trams, and it was reasonably quiet. There was a buzzer problem the first night but Izel offered to take us to lunch to make up for it. Thoughtful, and a nice touch but we were busy with the city.

“Excellent location on the Beyoglu side of Istanbul”

“Great location in the middle of Istanbul”
Reviewed 15 May 2013 for a stay in October 2012

Thumbs up! Nothing objectionable. Due to a flight delay I arrived hours later in the middle of the night, and it was no subject or issue for the property owner. He was very friendly, polite and attentively so that I could feel comfortable during my stay there.
I travel to Istanbul from time to time and this trip was one of the most comfortable and agreeable, also due to the very sympathetic location. It's well situated quite next to the famous historical Galata Tower. In a few minutes by feet you're in the middle of Beyoglu district. There are different Cafes and restaurant around. The apartment is spacious and bright. Clean rooms, beds, bathroom, kitchen... The bedroom next to the living room offers a beautiful view on the Galata Tower, especially in the evenings and nights. And the historical elevator it's a must to expire. Although the location is situated in front of a quite busy street, it is very calm, you don't feel uncomfortable.
I'll take the flat again when I'm going to Istanbul, again.

“A perfectly chic getaway”
Reviewed 8 May 2013 for a stay in April 2013

I couldn't be happier with our decision to stay at CasaLoBueno during our visit to Istanbul. The apartment is located in a perfect neighborhood near Galata Tower- within walking distance to the best restaurants, cafes, and boutiques.

The interior of the apartment was stylish, super clean, and had absolutely every amenity you could dream of. It was a perfect mix of old world charm and modern conveniences.

The landlord, Izel, was so easy to work with and provided us with great insider tips on sightseeing and getting around. He also gave us a local cell phone and told us to call him if we ever needed anything. Not many landlords would do that.

Overall, I give this apartment a top rating. It excelled on every level and I will definitely stay there next time I am in Istanbul.

Thanks CasaLoBueno!
