This is an excellent apartment for a couple or for 3 people. We stayed here with a small child for one week and had a lovely time. There was plenty of room to spread out (much better than a hotel!), cook if we wanted to and the location is also very nice (close to Tacsim Square). There are nice bakeries, supermarkets and patisseries nearby for delicious freshly-baked breakfast rolls. The apartment is very quiet at night also.

I would not hesitate to recommend this apartment to anyone who would like to stay within walking distance of Sultanahmet but who wishes to avoid the more touristic stuff where they are staying.

All in all a brilliant place to stay! Thanks!

"My Turkish Bath". I chose this place for my birthday present and it is perfect for me. I have to say that I love this place so much. I have made a right choice and I will come again and choose this place with a blink of an eye. It is really nearby to the every where that I want to go. I would recommend this place to all my friends and Yes! I did use the hamam. Thank you so much to the owner Metehan.

We stayed at the Turkish Bath for a week, June 11/18 2008. What can we say than that it was a lovely clean place, a home. The location was perfect and thanks to Metehan's useful directions we managed to explore Istanbul. We loved it, spite of all the steep hills, a place that you can explore by foot.

Thanks again Metehan for sorting out the little problem with the bathroom door and for the transfer to and from the airport. A place to bookmark for our next visit to Istanbul.

Cher Metehan OzKan,

ces quelques mots pour vous dire que nous avons passé un excellent séjour à Istanbul, ville de tous les superlatifs! L'appartement est idéalement situé et vraiment sympa.

Meilleures salutations

This is a lovely small flat in a quite neighborhood and is perfect for one or two people -- anytime of the year. The flat is warm, clean, cozy with interesting decorative touches here and there! I'll stay here again, maybe next year - inþallah. I would highly recommend it to anyone. Thanks Metehan for all the help and for being such a great facilitator. Don't hesitate to use the pickup/drop-off service to/from the airport - it's reasonably priced and it saves time.

The flat is very quiet, very intimate, with nice corners for working or for relaxing, and the neighborhood is great - one almost feels a local there. I would recommend the corner shops with fresh bread and pastries, or with fresh vegetables, and the cafe near the Firuzaga Mosque. Most of all, however, I would recommend having a chat with Metehan, he can really give you an insight into Istanbul's life and political situation. For anyone who loves Istanbul already or who wants to discover it, Istanbul Sweet Home can become a real home.

As frequent visitors to Istanbul,'Istanbul sweet homes'is a must for good accomodation. It is clean and everything works.
See you next year Metehan.
Thanks for everything.

José September 8, 2007

To make it short, I'll just say that I fully agree with previous reviewers' remarks. The appartement is ample, confortable and calm; the location is simply excellent; and Metehan is extremely helpful. So, enjoy your stay there!

Best

We stayed at my Turkish bath in August- staff were helpful and responded to queries- the position of the flat is great-friendly safe area and we could walk to most of the major sights, Blue mosque, Aya Sofia, Grand bazaaar- also central to public transport, trains & ferries. Everything was clean and comfortable- definitely recommend it to others wanting a convenient place to stay in the city

A friend and I stayed in this unit in mid-May for a week and had a great time. The location is ideal, because it's a quiet, safe residential area that is still in walking distance to the best shopping and nightlife area of the city. Within hours of our arrival, we found all that we needed: great restaurants, grocery stores, Istiklal's shops, the nightlife district, even a gym around the corner. Metehan was a great help getting us situated!!

We didn't realize Istanbul was so hilly until we arrived. Be prepared to get your exercise climbing and descending hills! It was great to come back to a clean, air conditioned, quiet apartment after days out on the town. And the king-sized bed is the biggest I've seen in Europe...very comfy too!

Thanks to Metehan for being such a great host!

Owner's Remark April 16, 2007

Thanks Zoe! I underdand that every culture has its own must for the breakfast but I hope the lack of toaster in our flats might be a good reason for our next guests to try fresh, baked Turkish bread which can be easily obtained from the local shops. I will proviede a couple of more pans asap.

Zoe April 14, 2007

This apartment is in a great location, with banks, restaurants and supermarkets nearby, and a short walk to the tram. It's also easy to get to pretty much anywhere you would want to go in Istanbul, with lots of transport choices locally.

It's also a lovely flat, really clean and with everything you need for a stay. The washing machine was particularly useful, as I always end up taking far too many clothes when I go away.

The only changes I would make is for Metehan to provide a toaster (I missed my toast for breakfast), and maybe a couple more pans. However, the lovely comfortable bed more than made up for the lack of a toaster.

I'll be booking to stay again, and would recommend it to anyone, it was a lovely and relaxing apartment.

Owner's Remark February 22, 2007
Dear Rafaell

Thanks for your contribution regarding the need for more dishes and glasses in my Turkish Bath.

Today I bought more and put them in the flat.

Rafaell from Toronto, Canada February 19, 2007
I just spent the month of January 2007 at My Turkish Bath in Beyoglu. The apartment is situated in an area loaded with amenities such as grocery stores, meat shops, bakeries, pharmacies and liquor stores. There are also many wonderful neighbourhood restaurants, bars and clubs. Most of all its just a few minutes walk to Taksim Square and Istiklal Caddesi. It's also a very breezy walk across the Galata Bridge to the Spice Bazaar, Grand Bazaar and Sultanahmet.
My Turkish Bath is a very nicely appointed apartment with most necessities available for a one month stay and the owner was kind and friendly - on my first night in Istanbul he took the time to give me a brief tour of the surrounding areas and local restaurants. When I noted that the corkscrew did not function he immediately replaced it with a new working model. Althought I was able to make myself dinners when I did not want to go out, I would recommend that the apartment be outfitted with some more dishes and drinking glasses as I feel some have been broken and have not been replaced. It's important especially when there are three people staying at once. It was great to have maid service once every week to freshen up the surroundings and a plus to have pick-up and return service to the airport even thought there was a taxi stand just one block away. On my next visit to Istanbul, I hope to spend some more time in one of IstanbulSweetHome apartments as I was very impressed with the service.
Owner's Remark January 18, 2007
Kelly is relatively right about her comment on our sitting area in My Turkish Bath; 2 armchairs, dining table are separated from the sofa as we did not want to break walls just to make place larger during our construction thinking of solidity of our building.
Kelly&christina January 18, 2007
We stayed in apartment 201 for 2 weeks well situated as is only a 5 minute walk from Taksim square,the apartment was cozy but found the sitting area quite small.There are shops around the corner which open late .In general i recommend this flat for anyone looking for good location and easy access to transport.
Thanks Metehan:

Owner's Remark:

Dear Lyne,

Thanks for your remarks.

The TV has a standard package of all channels provided by Turksat Kablo TV company; http://www.turksat.com.tr/kablotv/harita.html , I hope one day I will also buy a DVD.

A small booklet for the bus lines published by the municipality would be helpful for us too, but unfortunatelly there is not such a thing...except the website http://www.iett.gov.tr/en/index.php

Hope to see you again!
Metehan

Lynne D. December 4, 2006
The location is perfect and the neighbourhood well served by local shops. I felt very comfortable and safe walking around the area of Cihangir, even at night. It is possible to walk to the Bosphorus from here and even to Sultanahmet which I did a few times.
Taksim metro and bus stations are just a 5 minute walk, so everything is accessible during your stay and there are always taxi's passing by the top of the street waiting for a hire.

I walked to Dilmer Language school every morning and it was a pleasant walk, passing some wonderful bakeries and kebab shops on the way.

The flat itself was very comfortable and was like a home from home for me. The desk area with internet access was perfect for keeping in touch with home and helping with my studies.

The only thing I would improve on was the TV reception or provision of a dvd player because even though I was learning Turkish I could not follow all the local TV channels :-)

The books and maps available in the flat were ideal for when I first arrived. It may also be useful to provide information on local buses however.

Thank you so much for everything and I hope to be back again soon.

Kind Regards

Lynne

Bellissima settimana  
Cari amici,
per 9 giorni abbiamo affittato l'appartamento n.ro 201 (My Turkish Bath) e lo consigliamo a chi vuole godersi una permanenza tra la gente di istanbul.
La posizione è ottima, si trova nel quartiere di beyoglu, in una zona di piena vitalità comodissimo a tutto. La casa è arredata con molto gusto, confortevole e rilassante specialmente dopo aver girato per musei, ecc. E' ben distribuita e per chi ama, come noi, il piacere di un vero bagno turco in casa è il massimo.
Che altro dire... andateci ne vale la pena.
A proposito, il padrone di casa Metehan, è un giovane intelligente e dinamico veramente ospitale come solo i turchi sanno essere.
Andateci!!!
Marisa e Franco
