Reviews of this property
I booked this studio for my parents, they really enjoyed staying there. Saban is a great host and was very kind to help them during their time in Istanbul. It was very tidy and was cleaned every day. Furthermore there was a safe in the room. Everything was very good, thanks again :)
We were the end of July a week in Istanbul and have resided in Saban's apartment in the old town. The apartment is highly recommended, clean and well kept, daily maid service, air conditioning. Keys worked without problems. The only shortcoming: the apartment is located at the foot of a steep road, which can be handled on the way to the tram on foot.
Wir waren Ende Juli eine Woche in Istanbul und haben in Sabans Wohnung in der Altstadt gewohnt. Die Wohnung ist sehr zu empfehlen, sauber und gepflegt, täglicher Zimmerservice, Klimaanlage. Schlüsselübergabe hat problemlos geklappt. Einziges kleines Manko: die Wohnung liegt am Fuß einer steilen Straße, die auf dem Weg zur Tram zu Fuß zu bewältigen ist.
We booked this apartment twice, on our way into Turkey and on our way out however we only ended up staying in it once. I will explain further.
We stayed at this studio on the way into Turkey for 4 nights and enjoyed our stay. It is beautifully styled and newly decorated. Meeting Mohamad to pick up the keys was easy and everything was straight forward. This place is a 5 minute walk downhill from Beyazit tram station so the perfect location as well and you can walk to all the major tourist sites. There are supermarkets nearby and the cleaner comes every day, just like a hotel really! A note to the light sleepers out there, it can get noisy at night like any other city with a workshop next door and the rubbish truck coming out at night time so may not be the best option for light sleepers.
After going down to the coast we came back to Istanbul and had booked this apartment again. We had asked Mohamad if we could check into this apartment early and he said we could but we would have to come near to their office to get the keys. We went to meet them on our arrival and he sent Saban to meet us who didn't turn up for 50 minutes. I had to keep sending international text messages to find out what was going on. We were annoyed to say the least seeing as it was our last night in Turkey and they had really wasted our time. When he turned up he said that our apartment wasn't ready (when Mohamad had said it would be) and that he could take us to another apartment. This made us even more annoyed because we wanted the one we had booked. Since we didn't have much time and they had already wasted our time we went to the other apartment which was close to the Blue Mosque. Although bigger than Duzgun Sk 10, it wasn't nearly as nice as that one in my opinion. Later on that evening we were trying to prepare dinner and the cooker wasn't working either. There was no gas at all. I think another reviewer has written about a similar experience. On this second occasion the service was very poor indeed. Their communication skills needs to improve as well although it may be a language barrier but from dealing with Mohamad his English is very good. So a word of warning: Make sure you get taken to the apartment you actually booked! These guys would have been given 5 stars if this hadn't happened and we had stayed at our original apartment and checked in early as we requested.
We had a mixed experience with this stay, but on the whole it was quite satisfactory. Saban arranged transfers from the airport, & after letting him know our flight was delayed we were met accordingly-thanks Saban! We weren't, however, delivered to our booked accommodation but to an alternative. We we're told that there were some repairs being done & that we would be taken there the next day. We subsequently found that our room had been double-booked. The alternative accommodation was ok, similar location & very clean. The following day we were taken to our booked room only to find later it wasn't the one we booked. Again the room was very clean, comfortable, plenty of hot water & good location (there are some great seafood restaurants nearby very reasonably priced). The grand bazaar is not far, but a climb up the hill. Saban was very gracious in acknowledging the errors & arranged our shuttle to the airport at no cost. Even though it wasn't the experience we originally booked, the accommodations & encounter with Saban & Mohammad were positive & recommendable.
The apartment is ideal for a stay of several days! Necessary Absolutely clean and equipped with everything. One feels immediately at ease! The bed is relatively high and of very good quality ... So nothing with saggy or so. The mentioned street noise or garbage disposal noise is completely normal for Istanbul ... and at night it is really quiet, but who's there sensitively, just have to take your earplugs ... :) There are also fresh towels daily and is available for questions Saban an always aside. So an absolute recommendation! Price performance is simply unbeatable!
Das Appartment ist hervorragend für einen Aufenthalt von mehreren Tagen geeignet! Absolut sauber und mit allem notwendigen ausgestattet. Man fühlt sich sofort wohl! Das Bett ist relativ hoch und von sehr guter Qualität... also nix mit durchgelegen oder so. Der angesprochene Strassenlärm bzw. Müllabfuhrlärm ist völlig normal für Istanbul... und nachts ist es wirklich still, aber wer da empfindlich ist, muss eben Ohropax mitnehmen... :) Es gibt auch täglich frische Handtücher und bei Fragen steht Saban einem immer zur Seite. Also eine absolute Empfehlung! Preis Leistung einfach unschlagbar!!!
Everything was fine, just like like expected again
Alles war bestens, genau wie erwartet gerne nochmal
We enjoyed our stay in Istanbul very much. The small suite in the heart of the city was exactly the right accommodation for us, nicely decorated, clean, small balcony, easy access to public transport. Saban was an exemplary host, he took care of everything important.
Wir haben unseren Aufenthalt in Istanbul sehr genossen. Die kleine Suite im Herzen der Stadt war genau die richtige Unterkunft für uns: nett eingerichtet, sauber, ein kleiner Balkon, kurze Wege zu den öffentlichen Verkehrsmitteln. Saban war ein vorbildlicher Gastgeber, er hat sich um alles Wichtige gekümmert.
Caution!! Attention!! ! Never again The studio is centrally located - but on a main road which is very narrow. By a narrow row of houses, which allows traffic in only one direction day and night heavy traffic flows.!! Not enough - from 19 clock be emptied with great fanfare unbearable dumpster every 2 hours. Of sleep is not thinking!! Would not even book for free again. Any nearby 2 star hotels (I have personally viewed the room) including breakfast buffet cost instead of 77, - € 50, - € per room. So totally overpriced! Gym is well equipped and cleaned every day! Unfortunately, very disappointed! Dietwalta and Gudrun
Nie wieder!!Das Studio liegt zentral - aber an einer Hauptverkehrsstraße die sehr schmal ist . Durch eine schmale Häuserfront, die den Verkehr nur in eine Richtung zulässt fließt Tag und Nacht dichter Verkehr.!!!!!! Nicht genug - ab 19 Uhr werden alle 2 Stunden mit unerträglich großen Getöse Müllcontainer geleert.
An Schlaf ist leider nicht zu denken!!!! Würde nicht mal umsonst wieder buchen. In der Nähe befindliche 2 Sterne Hotels (hab persönlich auch die Zimmer angesehen) incl. Frühstücksbuffett kosten statt 77,-- € nur 50,-- € pro Zimmer. Also total überteuert!
Studio ist gut ausgestattet und wird täglich gesäubert !!!
Sind leider sehr enttäuscht!

The apartment is in a great location, maybe a ten minute walk from the Sultanahmet sites, and near a large number of restaurants in the Kumkapi neighborhood. It was very easy to get taxis to and from, as it is a well known area, and very close to the main road along the water, so easy in rush hour too. Clean and quiet, but in a local neighborhood (which I consider a good thing), not a tourist area. Saban is very nice and helpful, also arranging transportation to and from the airport. I'll be back next time I go to Istanbul!
The studio is in a brilliant location for exploring the old town, visiting the main tourist attractions on foot and is close to the water-front. It is also surprisingly quiet. The painting of the studio and the entrance stair has been done by a craftsman and the fittings are good quality. The shower is spacious and provides plenty hot water. The balcony is small with a restricted view but enough to sit outside and watch life in the street. The kitchen area is small but was plenty for our needs. With a cleaning lady coming in daily it is more like a good hotel.
