A wonderful place, peaceful and close to all destinations. Very nice home of Emre, clean and functional. He took care of us as a real host and we were always at him disposal. Sincere recommendation to everyone!

“Great stay för city lovers”
Reviewed October 18, 2017 for a stay in October 2017

Wonderful and cosy apartment in a quiet street in the middle of Istanbul's crowdy jam. Emrecan was a perfect host, friendly, generous and quick to answer calls. Very good value for money. We give our best recommendations!

“lovely place”
Reviewed August 23, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

Our stay in Emrecan's apartment was perfect. The location is right beside the Galata Tower so near good restaurants, nightlife, shopping and a lot of attractions. The apartment is really clean with a lovely backyard. Emrecan is an amazing host. He was always answered to our questions quickly and he made this great list of recommandations for his guests. He is very flexible with check in and check out. Emrecan is really helpfull and easygoing. We really enjoy our stay! Thanks again for letting us stay at your place and for the great wine!

“Wonderful!”
Reviewed May 14, 2017 for a stay in March 2017

What a wonderful place and host! I stayed two weeks and got to know the house and the area (visiting cats included:)) a bit and I liked it from the start and it even grew more on me every day! The appartement is super nice, spacious and comfortable and Emre is an amazing host; he is a super friendly guy who responded every question I had - from about the boiler to a shoe maker nearby - literally within minutes. The Galata neighbourhood is also beautiful and fun and this appartement (and the street it's on) is an oasis of tranquility and comfort, literally one minute from all the action. Please do yourself a favour and stay there!

“Cozy & modern flat in quiet neighborhood”
Reviewed April 23, 2017 for a stay in January 2017

We have been to many places in Istanbul but Emrecan’s place is one of the most beautiful homes I have seen for a while now. It is a very cozy, spacious and unique apartment in the center of the Galata district, yet in a secluded street away from the noise and hectic touristy environment.

Everything is as viewed in the pictures, the balcony is great for morning coffee’s and the garden is wonderful. Mainly staying inside and playing board games, watching movies and feeding the neighborhood cats, I would really recommend the apartment for those that like to stay local and hang out at home in the evenings. Emre’s apartment really felt like home to us and we encountered 0 problems. Within 2 minutes walking distance you can find a vegan/vegetarian restaurant with homemade traditional (affordable) foods, an espresso bar and breakfast café. It’s only 5 minutes away from the metro and about 8 min. from the ferries if you want to cross to the Anatolian side. It is also very close to Karaköy (10 min. walk), the famous trendy neighborhood of Istanbul.

Emre is a wonderful, wonderful host. He made sure we had everything we needed (extra set of keys, public transport card, all the basic necessities in the house and a list with great tips). I am sad I did not get to meet him in person but hope to do so the next time I visit his place, because I definitely will.

Me and my mother stayed here for almost a week, and we totally loved the place. The house is so beautiful, the decoration and design is wonderful, the balcony and garden is just spectacular. I can not wait to stay in Emrecan's house again, a hidden gem in Galata! Thank you very much for hosting us
