We stayed at the Marti Apartments for 5 days at the end of July - beginning of August, 2012. Location is perfect - close to public transportation and Taksim Square, yet in a residental neighborhood that allowed for some quiet time. Washer and dryer in the building was a big bonus and one amenity that we definitely took advantage of. The owners were so kind and helpful, suggesting the best places to shop, visit, eat, printing out our boarding passes and even calling our transfer company to explain exactly where the apartment was in Turkish! The building is very secure and has a code that you need to type in to get into the building. One evening there was an issue with the door and the owners took action immediately to make sure the door was fixed within the hour. We will be returning to Turkey and when we do, we will definitely stay here again.
