“Cozy, comfortable, well equipped and unbeatably central in Galata”
Reviewed May 28, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

We had a lovely stay also thanks to our host Emre being very approachable and motivated to make our time comfortable. The house is historic, clean and holds its own magic. Nice and cool during summers I imagine. The balcony and access to small garden were a special treat. If you intend to spend some time on balcony or terrace, you should enjoy cats, who will come by. We certainly did, they were adorable. We would come again, many warm thanks to Emre!

“Perfect little getaway!”
Reviewed March 17, 2016 for a stay in March 2016

We had a perfect stay at Emrecan's place. Although he couldn't welcome us in person, he provided us all the information we needed and we found everything as described in the apartment. Moreover, he even put some flowers and a bottle of wine on the table and he had coffee, tea, bread and cheese in the kitchen. From the first moment we felt very comfortable at his place. Emrecan was always reachable, he answered every question before, during and after our stay and gave us a list with useful tips in Istanbul and the neighborhood. The apartment is located in a quiet street with a nice little balcony and garden. There are nice little cafes and shops and bars right around the corner and it's possible to walk to many of the main sights in Istanbul (Sultnahmeth is about 30min walk). You should definitely visit the Galatatower (5 min walk) in the beginning of your stay. The view is beautiful and it gives you a good overview of the city. All in all we really enjoyed our stay and recommend that place to everyone who wants experience a lovely and authentic stay in Istanbul.

“Lovely House with a Great Host”
Reviewed December 13, 2015 for a stay in December 2015

This is our second stay at Emrecan's beautiful apartment. We stayed in April this year and we fell in love with the apartment. A unique historical old building with a great atmosphere! We enjoyed having our breakfast in the garden and having our drinks in the balcony after a big day in the city :) The apartment is in a perfect location to see the beautiful Galata area and Istanbul. It is more than we expected, it's better than the photos. It's on a quite street with small cafes and restaurants.

Emrecan is a very very nice host. He welcomed us at the house with a big smile and a cold bottle of wine. He helped us about everything especially getting to the island and the asian side. Also he recommended us very nice restaurants and cafes. He was checking us if we needed anything. We had a great communication with him.

Overall' on our next Istanbul trip we will come again to this lovely apartment for the third time :) I definitely recommend Emrecan and his apartment.

“Emre is able to let us feel like home in his own house.”
Reviewed November 30, 2015 for a stay in November 2015

Thank you Emre, you are a great host.
Helpful, resourceful and kind. Helpful by arranging a taxi to the airport and giving us so many information about the city. You were very quick in answering our questions. We also liked your house, spacious, clean and everything we needed. But most of all superb located and silent.
We would be happy to rent your house again! And you are also very welcome to Amsterdam :)

“Amazing stay!”
Reviewed November 24, 2015 for a stay in November 2015

We had an absolutely amazing stay at Emre's place. The apartment is perfectly located, on a beautiful and quiet street just steps away from Galata Tower. The apartment is cozy and felt like home as soon as we stepped in -- even better than the photos. It was the perfect base for us to explore around the city.

Emre was the perfect host, greeting us when we arrived and showing us around the house. He gave us lots of (really great) tips about places nearby. The kitchen was well-stocked and every small detail was provided for. Even though Emre was out of town, he checked in with us every day to see if there was anything we might need.

This was a really special and unique place to stay, highly recommended for anyone who wants a lovely and personalized space while in Istanbul!
