Positives items:The driver transfer was waiting for us at the Airport. The apartment was cleaned everyday. Good towels, shower and kitchen. King bed a little hard for me. Negative items:If you go without their transfer driver you won't find it because the adress does not belong to Ekim Apart.No signs. It belongs to a hotel called Sur. I was scared... More

The easy walking access to all the major sites is undeniable and the staff are friendly and helpful. The apartments themselves are a little shabby and the very close vicinity of at least 3 mosques means that sleep after 6am is unlikely. However all in all value for money and a great base to explore old Istanbul.

The apartment's location was fantastic, very close (5-10min walk) to Hagia Sofia / Blue Mosque. It was well furnished, neat and clean - they really did deliver on all that they promised. The room was large and the kitchen well equipped. So was the bathroom - we were very happy with the quality of everything we got. And the reception... More

In December, we booked this apartment for eight days in March. When we arrived Saban Olcer apologized but said he had double booked the room. So for three nights we had to stay in a room in the Aura apartment building. That was not a good experience. It was clean but it was extremely noisy. Trains, barking dogs, people in... More

I stayed in the new old city apartments during January 2014. Although getting disappointed by the look of the buildings but the flat was elegantly furnished, fully equipped, very clean and well maintained. Saban the manager is honest, helpful and friendly and so was the staff. The location was very good just 300 meters of the Blue Mosque, Aya Sophia... More

I challenge everyone to find such good clean appartments for short term stay at this low rate in this area of the city. Staff is very relax and will try hard to find the best solution to make you happy.

Ekim Apartments in the old city of Istanbul offered value for money and comfort while giving us the freedom to keep our own hours. The area is mixed, with hotels and some ramshackle private apartments jostling one another. The views from the room were not great, with a half demolished building just across the road, but as we only really... More

Our trip to Istanbul started a little rough. Our luggage didn't make it with us. As promised the shuttle was waiting for us. Saban was very helpful. The location is very good. 5 minute walk from Blue Mosque and Topkapi museum. A couple of comments. We stayed at the Hagia Sophia apartment. The Wifi was very weak and did not... More

My wife and I stayed for our anniversary for 5 nights in the Marmara sea view apartment for two on 4th floor. Great views of the sea from the balcony, good for drinks before going out in the evening.
