“Misrepresentation- heavy construction, air conditioning in only one bedroom”
Reviewed 9 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015
4
people found this review helpful

We booked our stay through AirBNB and were greeted by Selim's friend upon arrival. While the building and the amenities are nice, it is a brand new building on a street that does not have sidewalks and is impossible to walk on. You basically have to call a car anytime you want to leave, and none of the taxi drivers know where the building is located.

When we arrived, the Air Conditioning was turned off for the entire building including the rooms. After two nights, they finally switched it on. Unfortunately, because it is on the 7th floor, there is no ventilation and the construction outside makes it impossible to open a window. There was no a/c in the 2nd bedroom and our friend had to pay for a separate hotel.

The shower had a serious leaking problem (it hadn't been properly sealed) which was a challenge, especially if you are more than one person. Additionally, because of this, there is substantial black mold around the base (see photos).

It is very clear that this property was purchased as an AirBNB investment-- the building is basically empty, the furniture is cheap, there are issues that haven't been fixed (like the shower, and also several places where the walls had been damaged) because it is obvious that the owner's intent is just to extract as much cash flow as possible from the unit. Additionally, from a hospitality standpoint, there were only 3 rolls of toilet paper for an 8 day stay, no shampoo...nothing. Very bare bones.

Because AirBNB brokered a partial refund, we are not allowed to post any reviews of the property. Be wary of booking through AirBNB unless you have seen the unit or it has many, many reviews, because AirBNB's policies do not protect the consumer.

Reviewed 7 January 2015 for a stay in January 2015

No doubts! Go reserve your room! Best apartment experience in Istanbul. Very near by to all facilities in Taksim, easy transportation to the old city! I can not say enough about my vacatıon there! I travel alot during the year to all over Middle East & Europe. Elysium Taksim Residence 82 and 87 is best of the best! Rooms r clean, spacey, full f light! .. Guess how happy I am with the service I received compared to the money I paid.

“"Great location, lovely host, excellent authentic apartment"”
Reviewed 3 October 2014 for a stay in June 2014

We stayed here in June this year and did not want to leave! It was our first visit to Istanbul and I would highly recommend the city and Ferraz apartment. As the other reviews have mentioned, Selim is a great hostess providing you with basic provisions upon your arrival and was fabulous! She was very helpful and made our visit to Madrid even more memorable. The apartment is as per the pictures and a perfect base to explore Istanbul for those of you who are not familiar with the city. We felt completely at home here and fell in love with the area and the apartment itself. The spacious accommodation was spotlessly clean, light and airy and has lots of homely touches nd Everything we needed was at hand and the apartment has been very well cared for and very clean. I would definitely recommend and would gladly stay here again if we return to Madrid !. and the apartment is about a 5 minute walk from the local Metro station and We were able to visit many of the main attractions on foot. Selim, we will be back as promised and this time we will go out for a coffee and a good chat!! We would not hesitate for one moment to return or recommend this lovely accommodation to our friends. See you again soon.
