So this apartment does not have an elevator. Not really cool when you have a baby! And our apartment was 3 floors up! I was a bit disappointed with the apartment as it didn't look as good as the pictures on the website. We arrived on a Thursday about 2 and booked 3 nights. By Saturday afternoon, our apartment was...

I had nice experience with Chef apartments. Everything was very good and well planned. The furniture, internet service, water supply, bathroom and kitchen quality. The price was also quite good. The management staff was also friendly, collaborative and helpful. I strongly recommend everybody to stay in this apartment. I hope I have a chance again to come there in my... More

Other than not having our room ready when we arrived, no water, no internet, no English, and no customer service, the place was fine... if you like over-paying for small places to stay. Definitely don't take their transfer from the airport, if you don't want to take public transport for 10 TL per person, there are cab's which will charge... More

We were very disappointed with the entire experience. First of the all, the apartment we’ve rented was advertised as a penthouse. But when we arrived it looked more like a converted attic with no proper room separation. The furniture looked completely different to the pictures they advertised. And the bathroom had a really bad smell. They have offered an airport... More

The apartments, the place and the stuff are great. We had a very good time during our stay in Istanbul in chef apartments. Me and my family which consist of 15 persons had the best time in chef apartments. I wish I can visit Istanbul and chef apartments again. Thank you Serkan& Ozkan for your help and for making our...

It was a nice experience staying at Chef aparts, Ozkan and Sarkan are too lovely people, never thought I would be treated like sultan but I did, great service, nice location, and lovely people, that's all what tourists want when they're not at home, they just need a place called home. Good job and keep up the good work.

In contrast to the majority of the 5-star reviews here, I decided to give Chef Apartments only an average 3-star rating. I will explain the reasons of my decision later. However, it is also not difficult to see why many people like this place because I myself love it. Contradicting? As far as the apartment is concerned, this is probably... More

The bathroom was full of mould and the shower leaked. The kitchen equipment was so dirty we could not cook. The cleaning cloth for the kitchen was simply putrid. The apartment was dirty with dust etc under the beds, which looks as if it is never cleaned. The furniture was run down and in need of repair, so much so... More

My group of friends (4 girls) stayed here for 4 nights and we had such an amazing time. The location is perfect as it is close to the Tophane tram stop as well as to Istiklal where there is nightlife, restaurants and shopping. The staff are so lovely and friendly and I'm very grateful for their service and kindness. They... More
