Die Wohnung Sultanahmet Gardens liegt sehr zentral, wir sind ca. 10 Minuten bis in das schöne Zentrum von Sultanahmet gelaufen - zur Hagia Sophia, der Blauen Moschee, dem Sultanspalast.... Das Meer ist ebenfalls in 10 Minuten zu erreichen - herrlich für Spaziergänge am Abend. Die Wohnung ist schön und zweckmäßig eingerichtet und trotz der nahe gelegenen Bahnstrecke ruhig gelegen.
Wir haben uns sehr wohlgefühlt.
Unser freundlicher Gastgeber hat uns am ersten Tag auf einer kleinen Sightseeingtour die nähere Umgebung gezeigt, u.a. ein Restaurant, wo wir jeden Morgen gut, preiswert und mit einem herrlichen Blick aufs Meer frühstücken konnten. Great!
Die Wohnung sieht genau so aus wie auf den Fotos und ist toll gelegen. Der Vater von Kaya war so freundlich und zeigte uns die nähere Umgebung und gab uns Tips bezüglich Restaurants etc. Unsere Fragen wurden immer sehr schnell und kompetent beantwortet. Einzig die nahe Eisenbahnlinie war ein wenig laut. Wir haben uns aber gut aufgehoben gefühlt. Herzlichen Dank.
The apartment was great! Great size great location and clean. It only took 10 minutes to walk to all the major sights, half hour walk to old town. A bunch of cool little restaurants between. Taner's mother was very helpful with everything. Overall another airbnb success!!
The location of the apartment is great. Less than 10mins walk to Blue Mosque/Hagia Sofia. The house is alongside an unused train track
The apartment itself is functional & very basic. The toilet takes getting used to. The Shower & Toilet are next to each other, so its mostly wet and feels unhygienic. If you are looking for something plush, then look elsewhere.
The hospitality was good. The host Mirai and her son Tansel did their best to make us comfortable. We had problems with the toilet plumbing . Additionally There was a Turkey wide power failure and they came right away to provide battery powered lights, ensure the boiler was ok,etc.
They provided basic breakfast items and also household cleansers.
In summary, it was an decent experience. But at an excess of £100 per night I found it on the expensive side.
Our stay in Turkey worked out best because of Ms. Kaya (Taner's mom). She was very sweet, understanding and caring. We had to reschedule our trip after we checked in because of the weather and she was very cooperative with us. She also brought us some warm clothes :-).
The house is very well located and has easy access to most of the historical monuments and tramway station. It is sufficient for 2 to 4 guests and also has a nice garden in the backyard overlooking the sea. Couldn't have asked for more.
This is a well kept and well sized place with a very warm and welcoming host.
Overall, we had a very good time at Sultanahmet Gardens. Communication with Taner and his mother was very easy and straightforward.
The pictures of the apartment are accurate, and it is off the right size for a couple. The kitchen supplies are a bit limited, but there are enough of them to do simple cooking for two people.
The bathroom layout is a bit baroque at first, but you get used to it after a while: the shower is separated from the toilets by a curtain, and the shower water evacuates through a hole placed beneath the toilets, which means that the floor is necessarily wet after a shower.
Going to the main touristic sites of Istanbul is a 10 to 15 minutes walk. From there, it is also easy to hop in a tramway to get to the "lively" part of Istanbul (near İstiklal avenue) where one will find many restaurants, pubs, and shopping centers. There are more restaurants there than in the quieter touristic area around the apartment. A taxi back home cost us approximately 8€.
The same tramway goes to Kabataş, where we went on a boat to travel the Bosphorus and go to the Asian side of Istanbul.
Last but not least, the bed is very comfortable, the WiFi works very well, and having a free phone to call local businesses saved us roaming costs.
We were made to feel very welcome by Taner's mother, and she continued to help us during our stay whenever we had any queries. The apartment although not luxurious was ideal for us, especially being so conveniently sited in Sultanahmet and only a short walk from the Blue Mosque and other tourist sites. We found the shower arrangement in the bathroom a little unusual but in fact it worked fine once we had got used to it.
The neighbourhood felt very safe, and we visited several good local restaurants , mostly ones recommended by TripAdvisor.
The best thing about staying here was the friendliness of Taner's mother, especially when we couldn't use the frontdoor key properly!
