Taha's place was perfect for our trip. We stayed there for a week and it was the idle location and apartment. Very spacious lounge with beautiful views of the Bosphorus and a constant breeze through the windows meaning that despite the 38C heat, the aircon wasn't required. Taha was an amazing host and met us at the property to check us in (despite the late time), chatted with us about various things (recommendations for food, baklava, shisha, things to do and places to avoid, etc.), helped us carry our bags up to the place and even made us tea when we reached. Best of all though was how involved he was in our stay, constantly checking in on us on (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) to see whether we needed anything and to check how things were. The slight drawback was the number of steps we needed to climb to get to the apartment, but for us, the view made it completely worth it. Apart from this, (if I'm being picky) the lack of mirrors in the house was slightly disappointing. Would 10/10 recommend this Airbnb for anyone looking to travel to Istanbul and hope to stay at Taha's place again.

You decide to take a trip to Istanbul and enjoy the view from your house, choose Taha's house. You need good advice about places to visit, Taha will be at your disposal to share all his knowledge about the city. He was always caring about us, always sending messages to make sure we miss nothing. My family and I enjoyed spending our time there. The most important thing is that the house is well connected with the city center, Sultanahmet, Gran Bazar and other interesting places.

Taha was an excellent host. His apartment is lovely and has an unbeatable view. Taha was incredibly accessible and whenever we needed help with something he helped out almost immediately.

We chose this apartment for the great view from the window and the original interior with the lots of funny things. And everything were really the same as in the photos and even better. The view from the window to the Bosphorus is fantastic at any time of the day! In the apartment there are good internet, very comfortable bed, equipped kitchen. Taha is very hospitable owner, thank him for this.

We had a wonderful experience at Taha's flat during our week at Istanbul. The location is great, and has an eclectic decor that we greatly appreciated. Bottled water, towels, and toiletries were provided, as well as steady wi-fi and cable. He was also quite responsive to our questions and concerns, even while out of the country. Thanks for making our stay a great one!
