If I was you, I would STAY FAR AWAY from these guys. They really are terrible! They will cheat you! I can think of nothing good to say about them. It is a complete scam!

Like a number of other contributors I had a terrible experience at Elegance. They were lovely and kind, I foolishly thought: endless cups of tea, lunches, dripping charm. The credit cards were produced. I did not keep watch on what was happening. I was stunned when I got back to Australia to discover the amounts which had been extracted. I... More

Please do not go near this place, they are total scammers. don't be fooled by the salesman and for God's sake don't buy a carpet unless you actually know something about them. these guys have touts in front of Hagia Sophia to lure in the gullible, I was netted in, but could see through their little game, if you cannot...

I never write reviews, but feel compelled to because of the amazing service I received at Elegance. The salesman, Halit, knew that I was not interested in buying right away, but even so, he spent hours educating me about carpets and showing me some of their works of art. Unlike another carpet store that I had already visited in the... More

Could not agree with the fellow 'trip advisors' in regard to this joint. My teenage daughter went in and got suckered in by a very sneaky, tarty salesmen over a ring that was apparently worth $3000 and she could get it for $600 (but had to be card only) ??? Weird as I thought cash was more beneficial. After reading... More

The carpets are beautiful but the people (Hakim who says he is an owner) will harass you and bully you incessantly. I get nasty emails from him all the time. I've had to block him from my email. He will not leave me alone. His behavior borders on sexual harassment. (I am not very sensitive and can take care of... More
