Think of a space that is sophisticated, understated, comfortable and cosy, with wonderful objects from around the world and peaceful, very quiet yet very lively made with personality and soul.

The space

Please enjoy your stay in this relaxing and spacious flat in the heart of the charming and friendly neighborhood Beşiktaş.
Beşiktaş is a central, vibrant but not noisy neighborhood; 2 min walk from the central market and seaside, with a great selection of cafes, restaurants, bars, local shops. It is famous for its Fish Market during the day.

This is a 70m2, fully furnished and fully equipped flat on entrance floor of a building. There are three bedrooms, one kitchen and one bathroom and living room.

The living room, bathroom and kitchen are shared areas.

You can chill out in the living room and watch many international and turkish channels and movie channels on the TV. You can also connect your external disk or computer to watch movie.

2 minutes walk leads you to the ferry ports, the bus stop and other major transportation vehicles. From the ferry ports, in 5 minutes, you can end up in the Asian part of Istanbul. With a bus, in 10 minutes you can find yourself in Taksim or in Levent (the business area of the city and the best shopping malls with lots of high street brands and movie theaters). Local supermarkets and the local bazaar (every Saturday! fresh fruits, vegetables and also clothing!) is just 10 minutes away.

Guest access

This cosy room contains functional furniture such as a very comfy single bed, a hanger, a dresser, a study desk, a table lamp and a shelf.

Internet/wifi is available. All of the bills are included in the price (electricy/water/internet/gas). And once a week cleaning, routinely!

Interaction with guests

I provide fresh linens and towels. Rooms also have keys for maximum privacy. Keys to the room and the flat will be given upon your arrival, so please let me know about your arrival details and I will do my best to make your visit as comfortable as possible! I would also be happy to help you with recommendations about what to do, where to go and how to!

Thank you and enjoy your stay in this marvelous city!

I stayed in Basak's apartment for 4 months during my exchange in Istanbul and enjoyed it very much both before, under and after my stay. Basak answered all my questions (even the most stupid ones you have as a first time traveller in Istanbul) pre arrival. Furthermore she created a (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) group with my (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) before my arrival in Istanbul, so we could get to know each other. It helped me a lot that both of the girls turned out to have turkish roots, which was helpful in a pre-arrival time. When I arrived in Istanbul, Basak waited for me in the apartment. She had sent me a document over e-mail with details to find the apartment, which was easy to follow as a first time visitor. She took her time to great me in person and explain about the apartment, turkish culture and how I could satisfy my daily needs when it comes to groceries and etc. A week after my departure she arranged a dinner meeting with my (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) + the people from her two other apartments in Istanbul. It was great starter event, where I easily gathered my first contacts in Istanbul. She herself was presented in a great mood introducing turkish food, Raki and bringing stories from her life i Turkey. She even invited me to her home in the South of Turkey if I needed to relax from Istanbul's busy atmosphere. During my stay she always replied quickly when I had problems with in adopting the differences between the danish and turkish society. She applied me with a new chair when my old one broke and helped me find extra necesary stuff for my room and etc. Over all I enjoyed my stay at Basak's very much. She is kind, helpful and trustworthy. If you have the possibility to stay in one of Basak's apartment you should find yourself lucky and don't hesitate to book it. Bonus info: Besiktas is a great neighborhood as a foreign visitor from Europe. It's liberal and I never had problems and I could pretty much continue my usual habits and behaviour from my daily life in Copenhagen, Denmark.

My stay in Başak's place was wonderful. She has not only provided a comfortable and clean room that made me feel at home, she has also made me feel special with her friendly hospitality. Cleared expectations 100% for how an Airbnb host should be. Definitely recommended!

It is a beautiful apartment, in a good location. It is close to public transportation and close to the center of Besiktas where all the shops are. The fact that you are so close to a busstop makes it possible to get everywhere relatively fast. The apartment has everything necessary to enjoy your stay (spacious bathroom, place to cook and to relax) and still enough privacy if you are staying with more people in the apartment. Basak is also a really nice host. She helps you when you arrive to get orientated and when you need something she is only a phonecall / (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) message away. I can highly recommend this apartment if you want to stay in Besiktas, Istanbul! It is closeby to everything and basak as a host is very friendly and helpful.

basak is amazing as much as her flat!! from the first moment of your booking you will see how proffesional she is. whenever you need, you can easily touch her and solve the problem, however I dont think you can have a problem with Basak or her places as they are designed to answer your all needs

The room's description was accurate, in fact the room is exactly as expected. I felt very very welcome in Istanbul thanks to Basak, who wrote me directions to reach her apartment from Ataturk airport and spent time with me after my arrival to draw me a map of the neighborhood and give me useful pieces of advice. She is a very available host and even though the room is very small, this lodging is perfect for a short visit of the city (even in terms of location. Besiktas is very well located for a first-time visit of Istanbul). I highly recommend Basak as a host, also because she organized a dinner with all of her guests. I could also invite other friends of mine who were in town and the evening was one of my best in Istanbul. Tesekkuler, Basak!

The flat was really tidy and clean. There were a washing machine, free water to drink, bath towel, etc. Everything was perfect. Basak was really kind. She even invited me to have some drinks with other flat mates. You've got to stay at her flat everyone! Thank you Basak :)
