This apartment is WONDERFUL. I stayed here whilst moving between places in Istanbul and it was the perfect stop gap. It is cosy, but airy and the neighbourhood is excellent - easy walk for Istiklal, Karaköy, Galata, Asmali Mescit... Izi was also unbelievably helpful, even when I was being flakey about dates etc... I had a small issue when I arrived at 2am off a flight due to there not being any drinking water, but I messaged him and he responded immediately and I was all sorted (with a bar of chocolate too!) within 15 minutes. Things don't always go to plan, but the key for me is how people react and sort a situation and Izi sorted it and then some! I could wax lyrical for hours, but all I would say is, STAY HERE! If I ever need a place again, I will!

Isak's apartment was beautiful! This pictures don't really do it justice - it was perfectly renovated and very tastefully decorated. Isak was a great host - very responsive and made sure we had everything we needed. The absolute best part was the location, right by Istikal and surrounded by lovely cafes and bars. Would highly recommend staying here!

Isak's flat is wonderful. The location is perfect, walk up the hill and you're on Istiklal Caddesi, walk down and you're in Karakoy which is full of great cafes and art galleries. The flat itself is lovely, and the bed, although small, it super comfortable. Its clean, the bathroom is huge, and every room gets loads of light and has great views. It was perfect for our second stay in Istanbul and we highly recommend staying here.

We enjoyed a wonderful stay at Isak's place. The apartment was as advertised and Isak was a fantastic host -- very accessible and helpful if issues came up. The apartment is modern with lots of light and nice design touches throughout, including a beautiful bathroom. The building itself appears almost new. The apartment is on a small residential street off of a main street, and is located within easy walking distance of several great neighborhoods, including Galata, Istiklal, Karakoy, and Cihangir. The one drawback was the noise; the apartment is near a playground and faces the street, so it can be pretty loud at night. Bring ear plugs! All in all, highly recommend Isak's place for anyone interested in coming to Istanbul.

Response from Isak Izi:
Sorry about the noise; you faced the worst possible time in terms of noise: Ramadan. People do stay up later at night and there were also the loud drums to wake people up to prepare for fasting. I will be sure to keep ear plugs handy next Ramadan for guests :) It was great meeting you, thank you, hope to see you again.

I'm a chill guy from Istanbul who happens to be huge fan of this city. I enjoy occasionally going out, having good food and drinks. I also love the nature. I do diving, skiing, trekking, mountaineering and sailing when I can find time. I am also a boardgame enthusiast.
