It was an excellent holiday.
We had a great time in Istanbul.
The apartment was comfortable and well equipped and the owner was very helpful. the offered breakfast was very nice and the people around were very kind. We hope to come back again.
the apartment was very nice and very clean. We had everything what we need. At the night we had a perfect temperatur. Arsalan and Sardar were very good and polite to us. In our next holiday we would like to go again there, in this apartment. We were very happy with it.
We very much enjoyed our stay in the Cozy studio flat. It is conveniently located to the Old City sites and tram, and at the same time is a wonderful area to explore and enjoy the local sites. The local bazaar was fun to visit and had some very unique restaurants. The hosts provided some very nice additions: well written booklet in English which gives information on the area, transportation, restaurants, sites, etc.; a well stocked refrigerator that provided food for the first couple of days, wonderful arrangements for transportation to and from the airport, a working phone in the apartment for local calls, well appointed kitchen and bathroom with soap, shampoo, herbs and spices, and an apartment cleaning midway through our stay because we were there for more than a week. We would stay here again - guests should know that you will need to climb stairs (no elevator) and that you are about a 15 minute walk from a tram stop; although you can call for a taxi to get picked up if walking is an issue.
Gulnur me very well and helped me for everything. She greeted us while I had a mishap with another owner. Very nice and very clean apartment. The more these are all the little touches on arrival bread, fruit, eggs, olives, olive oil, etc ...
Moreover, Gulnur provided us a 3am taxi to take us to the airport. Really thank you for everything Gulnur! I highly recommend it!
Gulnur m'a très bien accueilli et m'a aidé pour tout. Elle nous a accueilli alors que j'ai eu une mésaventure avec un autre propriétaire. Très joli et très propre appartement. Le Plus ce sont toutes les petites attentions à notre arrivée: pain, fruits, œufs, olives, huile d'olive, etc...
De plus, Gulnur nous a prévu un taxi a 3h du matin pour nous emmener a l'aéroport. Vraiment merci pour tout Gulnur! Je la recommande vivement!
The apartment is clean, has everything you need, quiet street - not least in the bustling Istanbul. Pleased that the first day we waited for breakfast. The old town is 20 minutes walk, bus stop 3 minutes away, a supermarket nearby.
Want to thank the owner Aslan - transfer was on time istambuls cards were delivered to the room - which is very convenient.
Definitely recommended for a stop in Istanbul.
Lindo apartamento, igual a como son las fotos en internet. Por problemas de conexión llegamos a las O3.00 y nos estaba esperando. En la heladera agua,leche, queso, manteca, aceitunas. En la mesa pan, galletas, fruta., café etc. Muy servicial y atento. Volveriamos encantados
We had a wonderful time in Istanbul. We enjoyed the wonderful seaview from the apartment which is nice, clean and very well equipped. We appreciated the communication with Aslan and Gulnur, they always answered quickly and gave us all support we needed.
We stayed at Seaview Family Suite of Aslan Apartments. The apartment was on the third floor and there was an amazing view at the marmara sea. Our apartment was exactly how it is described. Everything was fine. The hosts were very friendly and there was a good communication before and during our stay. Aslan Apartments is just 3 minutes far from the metro station "cemberlitas" and 5 minutes walking distance from blue mosque (on the front door you only have to go right, at the end of the street turn left). To find a mini market you also have to go 15 meters from the front door in the right direction. The reason why we don´t give 10 points is the surrounding of Aslan Apartments. One of our neighbours made some annoying gestures. We cleared the situation by hanging some carpets over the handrails.
Everything was very well organized. Aslan apartments are very quiet and yet centrally located in the old city of Istanbul. Upon our arrival, we received an extensive introduction to the apartment and the surrounding area. Thanks for the hospitality and good time in Istanbul. We will be back!
Alles war sehr gut organisiert. Aslan Apartments liegen sehr ruhig und trotzdem zentral in der Altstadt von Istanbul. Bei unserer Ankunft haben wir eine umfangreiche Einführung in die Wohnung und die Umgebung erhalten. Vielen Dank für die Gastfreundschaft und die gute Zeit in Istanbul. Wir kommen wieder!
A quality apartment, very good condition, well equipped, the wifi works.
Friendly welcome and advice if necessary. Cleaning done once during the week.
