Barbaros and his team made us feel like family. From the moment we contacted them to the time we, reluctantly, left we were looked after so well. Nothing was a problem and they will care for you as honoured guests. The apartment is exactly like the pictures (and even has a sea view). Anything we needed they immediately found for us, including help with posting things home and shopping for leather clothing. The apartment is in the old city in a perfect location to walk to all the main attractions (plus shopping). It is also right in the centre of restaurants. you could not find anything better in Istanbul. The location is perfect for tourists, dining, shopping and exploring. Everyone was friendly, helpful and kind. Our apartment was on the 4th floor so if stairs are a problem ask him for something closer to the ground, though the building is typical of older Turkish family homes that have been carefully renovated, plus they carried our luggage for us up and down again! The apartment was very clean and beautifully appointed and has the best shower I have seen in a hotel/home. The rooms also have a washing machine which is great for weary travellers who have been on the road awhile. We booked for a week and loved it so much we stayed longer. The rooms have large TVs and also good wifi, so it was our Turkish home away from home, Thank you Barbaros!
