Some reasons why you should choose this place for your stay in Istanbul:
First. The host.
Talat seems to understand perfectly what his guests were looking for, whether sightseeing&relaxation or non-stop-adventure in Istanbul!
If you need some guidance in regards of sightseeing, travel tips ... - there's no better source of information than him because he knows the right people and places in the area. If there's something that can make your trip more enjoyable, he will do it!!!
Thanks for the recommendation going on the long Bosphorus Cruise (Eminönü-A. Kavagi-Eminönü for TL25). It was a relaxing trip close to the unique and wonderful shores of Istanbul :-)
Second. The property.
Greenhouse is close to Taksim, the heart of Istanbul. It is nice and immaculate. The lobby is tastefully decorated and provides a big television – a good place for hanging out.
There are a lot of different room options (family, double and dorms) including air conditioning (really cool - not just a fan ), shower, TV, hair dryer and mirror. The interior is simple and clean. And the beds are cosy and comfortable – for a good rest and best dreams!
Guests can also use the kitchen for cooking ;-) Also the lounge in the basement is nice and cosy – and a good place to meet other travellers, who were thoughtful, unpretentious and friendly people.
In summer it was very nice sitting outside on chairs - close to the entrance- having nice conversations, a cigarette and a good glass of Elma-çay ;-)
Third. Food and drinks
were tasty! I really enjoyed the included breakfast with bread, butter, jam, honey, cheese, fruit and/or vegetables and beverages such as tea, coffee and/or water. The drinks are free all day long – just another little thing to make a visitor happy; especially during a hot summer! The food is always fresh and delicious after another night out in Taksim.
George - the server is very knowledgeable and very friendly. One day he made a fantastic lunch, which is fortunate since this place is not far from other restaurants! Thanks a lot for the invitation :-)
Will I come back? Absolutely YES!
During my stay in Istanbul I stopped in Greenhouse several times!
Especially my last stay was a very special one, and I really looking forward to my next visit :-) And I will bring JD with me ;-)
