I found the property terleurstllend. I had a different expectation. There was an apartment offered and proved to be two rooms, the kitchen is lacking, which is in the basement and for common use. With shower and toilet There is also no possibility to sit outside. I thought that was a shame, I was hoping for a place with its own kitchen and something to sit outside. The caretakers speak poor english which makes it difficult to communicate.
de accommodatie vond ik terleurstllend. Ik had een andere verwachting. Er werd een appartement aangeboden en het bleken 2 kamers met een douche en toilet te zijn, de keuken ontbreekt, die is in de kelder en voor gezamelijk gebruik. Ook is er geen mogelijkheid om buiten te zitten. Dat vond ik erg jammer, ik had gehoopt op een eigen plek met keuken en iets om buiten te zitten. De huisbewaarders spreken slecht engels wat het lastig maakt te communiceren.
We enjoyed our stay at Tariks place a lot. The room was clean and neat, towels and linen were provided. There's a fully equiped kitchen and a common room where it's possible to prepare and eat your own food. The staff was very friendly and helpful even we arrived really late at night.
All in all fully recommendable!
There were only two tiny negative aspects:
- the address is very hard to find for taxi drivers even if it's only from Taksim square, because it's a small street. So make sure you have Tariks phone number with you. Call him and hand the phone over to the taxi driver so he knows where to go and you don't need to pay lots of money for just driving around and trying to find it ;)
- second thing was that it was a bit loud outside as there is a large street around the corner where there's a lot of traffic. So unfortunately it's almost not possible to keep the window open at night. But there's an air-condition anyway ;)
Guest house in Beyoglu was a good choice for staying in Istanbul. Tarik (the host) was very helpfull, we couldn't find the place on our own so he sent his friend to pick us up on Taksim square. The room was nicely decorated, clean and tidy, had everything we needed. Good value for the money. Downside of the location is very steep street up to the Taksim and unsafe looking neighborhood but the police station is very near the place. Overall, we were satisfied.
Very nice guesthouse in Beyoglu/Istanbul. Everything was well organized and Tarik was very kind and helpful. He gave me support and advices for the transfer from the airport to the guesthouse. The guesthouse has a simple but nice modern style. Everything is clean and in good state. The guesthouse was most frequented by younger persons, mostly students from abroad, backpackers or people like this so it's a friendly and unconventionell atmosphere there. The kitchen is always the center of social life in the guesthouse where you can talk with others and exchange experiences. The area of the guesthozuse isn't quite sophisticated. It's a part of the city where usally not the richest people of Istanbul living but it needs just a few minutes of walking to reach the Istiklal Caddesi in the center of Taksim. I wouldn't recommend the guesthouse for people who are senisitive of noise. Usually the acoustic level raises when the muezzin from the near mosque start to call the prayer when sunrise. With the begin of the daily rushhour and the school in the neighbourhood and their loud interval signal for the breaks the noise level raises more and more. All others will be quite happy there :-). I wouldn't recommend the guesthouse for travellers with luxury demands but anybody who is looking for place for sleeping and base to discover the town will have good time there.
We had a really good time in the apartment. It was clean, all things you need are avaible. In the street are good opportunities to get something to eat. You reach all the sight in a relavitely short time.
My friend and I enjoyed our stay in these suit rooms in Beyoglu in Istanbul very much. Both 'hosts' (during the night and during the day) were really lovely people!
The place is fine and comfortable. The onliest thing I want to give feedback about is that it was not really clean.
We were glad that the beds were ready in both rooms when we arrived at nighttime. And Tarik guiding the taxidriver through Istanbul to his place. That was a good service.
We also liked the area where we stayed, to see houses getting rebuilt in a beautiful way. We felt quite safe, also late in the evening.
Very nice people, the service is very good and the rooms are clean and nice.
The rooms in the rez-de-chausee are however unbelievably dark because you have to keep the blinds closed all day if you don't want people to stare into your room.
pleasant home, night of great seriousness ... the place is a clean comfortable 15 MIN WALK high street is very c bien.merci Wimdu and tarik!
accueil agreable,veilleur de nuit d un grand serieux...le lieu est tout confort propre a 15 MIN A PIED de grande rue ;c est tres bien.merci wimdu et tarik!!!
ITts in the heart of istanbul, really close to the main shopping street and bars/restaurants.
The room was super clean and compfortable.
But the best was Tarik.
When we arrived he took care of us and explained everything: "what to do" and "what we not have to do".
We had a great time there and we will reccomend this accomondation really really tho other travellers.
