The apartment is great, clean, central, and spacious. The stay has been wonderful and Tashkin (who met us) was great, friendly and always was there if we needed anything. I would definitely recommend staying here again. Thank you.

This airbnb was in a perfect location and absolutely adorable. Spent a weekend here for a girls' trip and we were happy we chose this place! There was a slight issue with the water heather but it was fixed within an hour. The hosts are very responsive.

We've been busy, building up a collection of lovely historical apartments in Galata, our favourite part of Istanbul. We've personally renovated most of them and stay in them ourselves whenever we can. 17 years ago we met in Istanbul, Tarkan's home city, while I was there for a…
