“Look no further”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2014

If you wanting to stay in Istanbul and visit the tourist spots, look no further than these apartments. Only 5 in the building with a communal roof terrace with stunning views. Apartments well furnished, spotlessly clean and stocked with everything you need. As previously stated owners even stock fridge with bread, cheese, fruit, chocolate, water and a bottle of wine. Ample free tea and coffee both in apartment and on terrace. Free wifi worked well and was available on the terrace too. Yes you hear calls to prayer, but this is normal for Turkey. Small shop opposite and a larger one just down the road if you need anything. If going to bazaar it's an uphill stroll but to get to blue mosque without going up, just turn right out of the door, go to the end of street and turn left and you're there. Owners couldn't be more helpful even gave us mobile phone pre programmed with their numbers should we have needed to contact them. To book you have to just contact owner by email, no way on their site to even check for availability. Also be aware they own at 2 locations, this one within walking distance of old town, the other is 2.5km away with a very similar name Istanbul Amedros suites.

Room Tip: No lift and curving stairs on the steep side. However apt 3 is just one flight up from street level.

This hotel locates in old town, you can go to most of the main attractions in walking distance. Their rooms are very clean and comfortable. We stay at the top floor, although there is no elevator, but the view on at the roof garden is worth. The room rate is a bit high, if you have few friends to share with, this is a nice place to stay while in Istanbul.

1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2014

We stayed on Apartment Deluxe 1 for 6 days. It was a terrible choice.

There are two main problems that we faced.

A cat went inside the apartment while we were outside thru the balcony, and it ruined everything (food, clothes, beds and couchs), and the cleaning ladies show up only once every two days!

The other major problem was the street going to the building. It is extremely run down and frankly it's very, very, very depressing to step out into it every time you go out or go back to the apartment - not what you want for a relaxing vacation.
Other downsides include the followings:
They are looking for any opportunity to charge you extra money upon your arrival (they changed me 20 euros per night for an infant that I didn't mention in my booking!), they charge you insane amount of money for transfers from/to Sabiha Airport.
The 5" television doesn't work most of the time.
The balcony door was very difficult to master.
There is no washing machine and clothes rack in the apartment.
No manager on site.

Bottom line... stay away!

We stayed here for 7 days in March. The apartment was great especially since we had 3 small kids. Spacious, clean and with lots of light. The kitchen was very well equipped with all the essentials. As written by others, when we arrived they provided us with milk, bread and fruits. Which was very thoughtful. They clean the apartment every two days.
Location of the apartments is really good.It was around 5-7 minutes walk to blue mosque and also to the tram station. You have restaurants close by. There is a shop opposite where you get all the basics. And a bigger supermarket a few minutes walk from here.
Burhan,the admin, gave us the istanbulkart, which was very helpful. Whenever we called with anything, he helped us out immediately. Yuksel the owner was very prompt with any inquiries and helpful. They let us store one of our suitcases in their office, since we didn't want to take to our trip to Cappadocia.
Overall this is a great apartment and good service. If we return to Istanbul again, this is where we will be staying for sure.
There is no elevator here but we stayed on the ground floor so this wan't an issue for us.

I stayed with my brother and father in appartment nr. 3 for four nights and we were delighted. The appartment was very clean, the beds were excellent and the location is perfect if you want to explore the old city. The roof terrace is great and there's a shop right across the street where you can buy all essentials. As others have written, there's a mosque really close by which will wake you up early in the morning, but the prayer call lasts only for a couple of minutes, it didn't bother us that much. Last but not least: Yuksel and his colleagues were extremely helpful. Not only did they borrow us an Istanbul card for public transport and gave us city maps, they also assisted me in picking up a parcel from the post office and when we forgot a jacket in the cab bringing us back to the airport, Yuksel managed to reach the driver in only a couple of minutes. This isn't the cheapest apartment in Sultanahmet but we think it's well worth the money and I would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a place to stay in the old city.

Spacious, clean, comfortable and convenient apartments with spectacular views of the Bosphorus from the roof terrace. Well equipped kitchen and nice bathroom with excellent shower. Cleaning service every other day included. Recommend without reservation.

Room Tip: They are all nice. Top floor ones have good views but lower level ones would be cooler in the summe...

Would really recommend this great apartment. It is spacious, clean and close to all the sights in the old town. There is also a lovely roof terrace with a great view of the Bosphorous. Transfer to and from the airport was organised for us by our very helpful hosts, who also gave us a travel card to charge up for use on the buses and ferries. Cannot recommend this apartment highly enough.
