“Laid Back Honeymoon”
Reviewed September 17, 2013

My husband and I travelled to Istanbul for 7 days after having visited Paris on our Honeymoon. 4floors was a welcome change from our cramped Paris hotel room. We stayed on the second level of 4 floors and we're welcomed by a very informative owner, Murat.

The suite was clean and spacious. If you are interested in design - this a place to stay. Having a kitchenette was wonderful as we spent almost everyday buying different food items at various markets.

Murat was invaluable - he arranged cars to and from the airport and was a wealth of information regarding dining and nightlife in Istanbul.

The only issue we had was noise. Our suite overlooked a courtyard which was very loud with children playing and yelling. There was also a lot of construction in the area which began at 7:30 and went all day.

Overall a great alternative to a hotel, and we loved staying out of the touristy areas.

The apartment has a very good feel. It is more like staying at an independent apartment in a community. I stayed on the second floor which only has community views rather that scenic views. The price was still high. I greatly enjoyed the stay. The staff is good and Murat is very helpful and provides good recommendations. The payment arrangements were a hassle as they want to be paid in Euro in cash on checkout not credit card. I was pre-warned. After some inconvenience, i used Paypal. (It is a challenge to use Paypal in Istanbul because they don't want to approve the transaction at a foreign location ). The apartment is spacious but only has a few chairs not a couch. It has a washing machine and ok Internet.

Room Tip: If you want a view of the water, make sure that you get a high floor. There is no lift.

We stayed 3 nights at 4Floors and it felt like we were staying at a stylish friend's place. The boutique apartment house run by Murat is not so much for people who need and expect the 24/7 full service coverage and amenities of a 5 star hotel.
This place is more for independent travelers who want to experience a stylish and cosmopolitain side of Istanbul (think Manhattan meets Cairo..). Murat went the extra mile helping us to put together our tailor-made schedule (restaurant bookings, bars, cultural trips, airport transfers and private boat charter) of a quality that only well-connected insiders can do.
It's almost stupid posting this here as 4Floors should be a well-kept secret.

If you like design and interior architecture this is the place to be! You´re in the heart of the city but in a nice and calm street. The owner Murat has very good recommendations for bars, restaurants, etc. you should follow! The view from the balcony is amazing and within walking distance you can reach the most important highlights of Istanbul.

Wow - view from penthouse! We could not sleep -sunset over the town gives golden light to the Bosphorus, moon with reflections in the water, sunrise is giving lights to the mosques, observing the flight of the seagulls...and we are far away from the hectic but only around the corner from the main street! The problem was, that we don't want to leave our penthouse with its impressive modern design for sightseeing!

Room Tip: Penthouse, but not for a family with small children

This is the perfect place to stay in Istanbul, at the same time quiet and in the heart of the city. We enjoyed the stay in this modern stylish flat with views over the Bosphorus and the Old town. Murat Topaloğlu's advice on restaurants, bars and places to go was just perfect - it must absolutly be followed!

There is no better place to stay in Istanbul as 4floors. Nowhere I got received with such a sincere friendliness. The suites / apartments are spacious and stylish with a fantastic view of Istanbul and the Bosporus. The host Murat shows you to the best bars and restaurants, far from any commercial tourism. There is no other way to get to know the lifestyle of the residents of Istanbul as quickly and intensely as on Murat, and I have to say I'm really impressed!
If you book 4floors Istanbul you not just book an accommodation, you book a priceless experience.
