My house is very cosy safe and close to main attraction centers in Taksim. I am a independent artist. A time for art A time for living. Sometimes the two can be conflicting so i decide to be a member of airbnb world :)

The space

I rent this house so that i can provide more supply for my Phd programme for next september in London. Untill this time i will be happy to host you.

Guest access

-The room has a very comfortable double-bed, a wardrobe.
-Although the flat is right in the middle of the city, the street that the apartment located is very quiet and peaceful.
It's 5-7 minutes-walk to the metro station and the second-oldest subterranean urban rail line in the world after the London Underground. Just 5 minute-walk to the bus station. An "Istanbul Card" which you can use for your public transportation is provided.
Make sure that all the famous night clubs, bars, cafés, restaurants; and most of the historical places are walk distance away. You'll enjoy Istanbul nights and days and come home safely.
-Whole equipment kitchen. (stove, kettle, dishwasher, toaster, juicer, etc.)

Definitely an amazing host! Easy to contact and fast at writing back. We had an amazing vacation and the apartment was perfect for two. However, I have to say that it wouldn't fit for more than three people. It is close to Taxim and a lot of caps drive by the building so you don't have to wait long for one. No doubt that I recommend others to stay at Pınar's apartment and I wouldn't mind going back. Thank you Pınar! :)

Pinar's apartment is clean, light, cozy and full-equiped. It is situated in good location. If you want to use public transport to explore Istanbul, Pinar's apartment is right for you. In 12 minutes walk is metro station (to get there you have to use the steep street, better - Tepebasi street) and in 12 minutes walk is stop of touristic sightseeing Big Bus tour (to get there you have to use a very steep street). In 8 minutes walk by flat street is bus stop to get Eminonu (Egyptian market, New Mosque, 10 minutes walk from historical centre and Sultanahmet square). From this bus stop you can also get Taxim square, Miniturk park. But one of most interesting public transport is the ferry boat. Ferry pier is also in 8 minutes walk by flat street from apartment. By ferry boat you can get to Eminonu, Karakoy and even to Uskudar (in Asian part of Istanbul). Price is the same as the bus. Next to the entrance door there is a small grocery store where you can buy everything you need. Pinar is extremely good host and if we had some questions she promtly gave the answer. So we highly recommend Pinar's apartment.

Pinar was a great host , she waited for our arrival when we arrived late at night and will try to attend to our queries, although some time she was a bit slow in responding but that was due to her hectic jobs. On the last day, we had some issue at home and she came over to accompany us all night long, which show that she is very responsible and accommodate to ensure our safety is taken care of. We love her comfy apartment, it is very clean and in safe area. The only problem is the area that is located in hilly area and will have to walk about 15 minutes from nearest bus station. For me I have to no issue to walk about but not recommended for unfit or people with health issue. To take bus to Eminonu area would takes about 7-10 mins (flat walk), and walk back from bus station will take about 15 mins walking down the hill. The route for going and back within Istanbul is not using the same route, so it can be quite confusing. Overall, i would highly recommend this clean and trusted hosted.

Pınar is one of the most friendly and helpful host I've ever met! She pick me up at the bus station and was so kind in giving me all the information I could need about the apartment and the city. Her apartment is exactly like the pictures, beautiful, bright, clean, I felt home (and the fridge was full of good foods!). The location is perfect: the area is calm and safe, and even if the city centre is so close, it's outside of the traffic of Istanbul. Near to the entrance door there is a market where you can buy everything you need, and the owner is extremely kind and joyful! Just be ready to climb, the house is at the end of a down sloping street, but this is common in every area of the city. It's definitely the best accommodation you could find for this price! Highly recommended!

We had a good experience staying in Pinars place. It was very clean and well maintained. The places of interest could be reached by a bus, so it was no problem . We didn't get an Istanbulkart from Pinar, but it was no problem buying one. We didn't have much contact with Pinar, but the place was really nice and well kept.

Pınar was a great host, and although we didn't get to meet her in person, she was very helpful over the phone and messages. The apartment was clean and cozy, and close to Taksim and Istanbul's night life. We enjoyed discovering how locals live without the intrusion of tourism. The little shop downstairs was very convenient, and the owner simply lovely. The climb to Taxim is ultra steep so not recommended if you have health issues. Highly recommended!!
