Reviews of this property
Host is very kind and prompt response.
Very nice APT & TV for all around world.
But the hot water at shower was not clean (rust wather?) and the area where APT locates is some what dirty.
First of all, many thanks to Necla, she was awesome host with a lovely family. They all threated us like family. Necla and all of her family were always helpful and kind. We 100% recommend Necla as host, you will have a nice stay with her and feel save and taken care of.
Also the surrounding area is not the finest, the building and specialy our room were superb. Very clean and comfy. With a good cooler and a nice shower. The kitchen is also good for a little brunch at times. Everything was new and really lovely decorated.
The Apartment is near Taksim and Isteklal, so it is close to the shopping and party areas. There is also a nearby busstation from which a bunch of lines depart and of course the omnipresent Taksi (Taxi) are available at all times to take a trip to another area of big and loud istanbul. We would recommend to get a Istanbulkart for the Bus and Metro, so every ride would cost you just 2 lira. For dining we would recommend to have a bit at the places were the locals eat, so not the pricy ones directly at Isteklal. Just ask Necla and she will show you were the good food for a reasonable price is. And also use the transfer service Necla offers you will be greatful after the fligth and all the security checks you have to endure.
Bottom line: Perfect host, superb room, good price!

Me and my four friend had an amazing stay in Istanbul at Nelly's. Even though the surrouding streets are quite dirty and full of broken houses, Nellys is nothing of this. The apartment is very cozy and was cleaned every day, the breakfast Nelly made every morning was delicious as well.
I would definetly recommend this appartement to friends!!
The stay at Nelly and her family was very nice.
We were 4 adults and 2 children, the apartment is very clean and the decor is very neat.
Nice neighborhood and populaire.A nearby, there are grocery stores open 24h / 24, a supermarket, a bakery, cafes and a popular market on Sunday ... the apartment is located on a slight slope but quite feasible for adults and children! Ideal location within 10 minutes walk of the great Istiklal Avenue.
Regarding the owner, just tell you that Nelly and her family are available at any time, and a large gentillesse.Elle will welcome you and make you a walk in the neighborhood ... and above all to inform you of the good culinary Plans .. ..
Go there without problems ....

Le séjour chez Nelly et sa famille fut très agréable.
Nous étions 4 adultes et 2 enfants, l'appartement est très propre et la décoration est très soigné.
Le quartier est sympa et populaire.A proximité, il y a des épiceries ouvertes 24h/24, un supermarché, une boulangerie,des cafés et un marché populaire le Dimanche...l'appartement est situé sur une légère pente mais tout à fait faisable pour adultes et enfants! L'emplacement est idéal à moins de 10 minutes à pied de la grande avenue Istiklal.
Concernant la propriétaire, juste vous dire que Nelly et sa famille sont disponibles à tout moment, et d'une grande gentillesse.Elle saura vous accueillir et vous faire une petite balade du quartier...et surtout vous informer des bons plans culinaires....
Allez y sans problème....

we have a nice and good time in the place. The apartment was clean, comfortable. It is just few minutes from main transportations , shops , cafe and restaurants. we really enjoyed the time at the apartment. Ms Necla is very accommodating, thanks a lot for your hospitality during our visiting Istanbul.
Very clean apartment where nothing is lacking, located in a typical and authentic district, ideally located for visiting Istanbul metro tram bus.

The apartment is exactly as described in text and image, fully equipped and in very good condition. It is located in a quiet side street of a simple residential area, which is used only by residents. Being located in the ground floor there is a private entrance, which is secured as the window with bars. Plenty of natural light, you can not expect, but during the day it is anyway mostly traveling or visiting Nelly and her family, for example, to a delicious breakfast, which you can book it.
The location is ideal to explore Istanbul. As described to get within a few minutes walk to Istiklal Street, the Metro, the Taksim Square to Tünel or web without having to endure the nightly noise of the center!
Nelly and her family are very nice and easy, it feels very familiar with the other guests. Nelly was always approachable and helpful, they always had good tips or suggestions for staying in or around Istanbul.
Clear recommendation when you want with insights into Turkish life. I would book again with Nelly.
Die Wohnung ist genau wie in Bild und Text beschrieben, komplett ausgestattet und in einem sehr guten Zustand. Sie liegt in einer ruhigen Seitenstraße eines einfachen Wohnviertels, die nur von Anwohnern genutzt wird. Durch die Lage im Erdgeschoss gibt es einen eigenen Eingang, der wie die Fenster mit Gittern gesichert ist. Viel Tageslicht kann man nicht erwarten, aber tagsüber ist man ohnehin meist unterwegs oder man besucht Nelly und ihre Familie zum Beispiel zu einem leckeren Frühstück, das man dazu buchen kann.
Die Lage ist optimal, um Istanbul zu erkunden. Wie beschrieben kommt man in ein paar Minuten zu Fuß zur Istiklal Straße, zur Metro, zum Taksim Platz oder zur Tünel Bahn, ohne dass man den nächtlichen Lärm des Zentrums ertragen muss!
Nelly und ihre Familie sind ausgesprochen nett und unkompliziert, man fühlt sich mit den anderen Gästen sehr familiär. Nelly war jederzeit ansprechbar und hilfsbereit, sie hatte immer gute Tipps oder Anregungen für den Aufenthalt in Istanbul und Umgebung.
Klare Empfehlung, wenn man möchte mit Einblicken in das türkische Leben. Ich würde wieder bei Nelly buchen.
I just come back from this place.
I had a very very good staying there, the position is very good for visiting city and for night life,very close to many clubs and restaurants, and bus station.
Room was great, NEW, big and clean. About Necla family i can only say they're cute and really nice, and helping you if you need.
I'll be back to Istanbul, sure i'll be here again!.
Sono appena tornato da questa location e la consiglio vivamente, è vicina alla stazione dei pulman, a piazza taksim, e alla zona dei locali notturni.
ho trovato una stanza grande, nuova e, soprattutto, pulita.
Necla e la sua famiglia sono stati gentilissimi, aiutandomi quando ne avevo bisogno con informazioni, ricerche, ecc.
Tornassi ad istanbul, e tornerò....tornerei in questa guesthouse.
Saubere Wohnung! Sehr nette Gastgeberin und Nachbarn!
Die anderen Häuser in dieser Straße sind sehr alt, aber davon nicht abschrecken lassen! Die Wohnung hat alles was man braucht und liegt zentral.
Cok tsk. Necla Abla!
