I didn't stay this apartment I booked.
The caretaker told us the apartment I booked has problem with electricity and roof when we arrived.
Then he took us to another apartment that smelly, dirty and no internet connection. Ironing board was broken too.
My all family and friends were worried me because of Turkish coup situation but I couldn't send any message to them that night. Thats terrible.
We were not happy at all.
We complained to the caretaker and tried to speak to the owner but he had never answered our call. The caretaker also didn't answer call often or call us back.
My partner complained then the caretaker offered bigger apartment and also the apartment I booked if the repair work finish. 2 days later the receptionist told us we can move bigger apartment if we pay extra money.
Somehow we found later the apartment I booked the electricity and roof were no problem. The caretaker told us a lie.
We of course complained because we supposed to stay the apartment I booked.
After our complain, we could stay bigger apartment but no clean enough so we cleaned after we moved in and no toilet roll and washing up requid etc.
The rest of our stay was ok....however, this experience was really terrible and very much disappointed.
it was really disappointed and sad because last stay I stay his ( the owner's ) other area's apartment and I was happy to stay but not this time.
Nice location and warm and comfortable apartment.
Metro station, bus station and big shopping centre were near.
The negative side was part of vacuum cleaner was broken but could use and I couldn't find iron board only. others were all perfectly working and no problem.
If they had more plates it would be more better.
The owner always responded quickly when I asked some questions.
I really like and enjoyed staying this apartment.
We where met by a person who was not very good at other languages than Tyrkish, however we got the appartment key and key to internet.
The appartment was as described, very nice, however the housekeeping could be little better, but it was acceptable. What is a great plus, is that this is one of the few appartment with a real oven.
The kitchen utilities was limited, you have what you need, but nothing extra, i would advice to put in a microwave, little more pots and pans, and a mixer.
All in all, my wife and I was satisfied by the appartment.
The area is nice, many small shops, easy access to supermarkeds for shopping. Dont miss out on the marked on your way to the haubor.
I would come again.
Everything is exactly as described and shown in the photos. The location is really great! Very nice and pleasant host. Everything was neat and clean, we felt very comfortable and would stay here again.
Alles ist genauso wie beschrieben und auf den Fotos dargestellt. Die Lage ist wirklich klasse! Sehr netter und angenehmer Gastgeber. Alles war ordentlich und sauber, wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt und würden wieder hier buchen.
Apartment is well located in peaceful and friendly environment, but the ventilation is not optimal. The kitchen we found minimalistic
Wohnung ist gut gelegen in ruhiger und freundlicher Umgebung, aber die Durchlüftung nicht optimal. Die Küchenausstattung empfanden wir als minimalistisch
We stayed about 10 days in Metin's flat in Kadiköy-Istanbul. To say it in advance, we loved the district of Kadiköy which is more authentic and always busy but not crowded by tourists. I mean, if you stay just a few days in Istanbul, it might be better to have accommodation closer to the main monuments on the European side. As we had plenty of time we really enjoyed to take the ferry to the other side in the mornings having the first Cay on the boat.
With regard to the flat we've been more or less fine with it. I would say, the fotos made us expecting a better kept flat. No doubts that sb had cleaned the flat before but one could see that it is always done in a superficial way. This coincides with the impression that nobody cares about the many traces of wear like damages (scratches) on the wall or holes (from cigarette ashes) in the couch. The equipment is okay. Best of all is the bedroom with comfortable bed.
We were kind of disapointed that Metin sent sb to hand over the keys, who did not speak any word of English. So communication was limited to the WIFI-Key (which worked really well). I don't know if I expect to much of that as I used Wimdu the first time but I hoped to resolve some other questions about the city with the owner. When we told Metin the second day that we were not completely satisfied, he answered immediately and offered his help. So that was okay. Finally, we preferred to arrange the flat according to our "gusto" as far as possible and overall we had a nice time there.
The location is really true and is good if you want to live in the Asian part of the bustling district Kadikoy. The apartment itself is warm in order, water and heating. Clean laundry was there, even the already mentioned by other drying rack was there, so we had clean towels (after drying). The cabinets could again be wiped, who wants to cook, should not expect too many utensils but who wants to cook in the delicious food around the corner already? Sometimes it smelled musty, which is also at the half position in the basement and the bad Badlüftung well.
Keys was bumpy: we had to call, luckily we had the phone number of Wimdu yet received, because the landlord came nothing on demand, and despite appointment no one was there, so call and 20 minutes later, everything had worked.
The beds were soft and the way we slept well, especially it was quiet.
Whether we recommend it? Who able price, bed and rest are important, the so, who draws on a nice hotel room for comparison, then no.
Die Lage stimmt wirklich und ist gut, wenn man im asiatischen Teil im quirligen Kadiköy Viertel wohnen will. Die Wohnung selbst ist in Ordnung, das Wasser und die Heizung warm. Saubere Wäsche war da, auch der bereits von anderen erwähnte Wäscheständer war zur Stelle, wodurch wir saubere Handtücher hatten (nach dem Trocknen). Die Schränke könnten mal wieder ausgewischt werden, wer kochen will, sollte nicht zuviele Utensilien erwarten, aber wer will bei dem leckeren Essen um die Ecke schon kochen? Manchmal roch es muffelig, was wohl auch an der halben Lage im Keller und der schlechten Badlüftung liegt.
Schlüsselübergabe war holprig: wir mußten erst anrufen, zum Glück hatten wir die Telefonnumer von wimdu noch erhalten, denn vom Vermieter kam auch auf Nachfrage nichts, und trotz Verabredung war niemand da, also Anruf und 20 min später hatte alles geklappt.
Die Betten waren übrigens weich und wir haben gut geschlafen, vor allem war es ruhig.
Ob wir es weiterempfehlen? Wem Lage, Preis, Bett und Ruhe wichtig sind, dem ja, wer ein schönes Hotelzimmer als Vergleich heranzieht, dann nein.
Nice apartment, quiet part of Kadikoy but just at 5 min by foot to more animated part of area and of boats to european part of Istanbul and bus stand to airport Sabiha Gocken.
The apartment is very functional, fully equipped and amazingly close to a large mosque and right in the shopping district. Great location, great facility and the move in and move out went smoothly and was with ease.
This apartment was an excellent value for the money. It was a 2 block walk to the Marmaray which goes under the sea and puts you in easy access to any place in Istanbul. Next to Marmaray station is a Carrefore inside a large shopping center. Also, the neighbor hood is charming with many local delis, restaurants, bakers. Right on the corner is a vegetarian cafe. The apartment is large and comfortable. It is in the basement but looks out on a large backyard with garden and trees. It is quiet. Kadikoi is the place to stay while visiting Istanbul. Thank you Metin.
