Today's the last day of my month-long stay at Tea and Gossip, and I've got it all mapped out. I'm going to do a little work on the internet in this bright and comfortable living room. I'm going to make one last round of this lively and picturesque neighborhood -- the best in Istanbul, to my mind. And I'm going to wrap it up with cherries, almonds, and an Efes on the front balcony at dusk. I love it here. Don't tell anyone.

What a pleasure to spend a week in Istanbul in your delightful apartment. Everything worked so well and the transfer from the airport to the apartment was a blessing after a very long flight. The location of the apartment is excellent and so handy for restaurants and with Carrefour's just around the corner, the essentials of life were readily available (fresh fruit , Turkish yoghurt , Schweppes tonic water etc etc) . Comfort and convenience sum up this apartment which I would highly recommend.

Hi Metehan

Thank you so much for all you did for us in Istanbul.

The flat was just great; the neighbourhood is fabulous, great places to have breakfast or tea in the centre of Beyoglu.

When we lost our passports you were fantastic. Thanks for all your help and our interesting talks.

We will certainly come back very soon to your great city!

Ever yours,
Matthias + Michele

my friends and i from all over the world (nyc, paris, pakistan) met up in istanbul at the tea & gossip balcony for 9 nights. we went to istanbul to celebrate the wedding of a dear friend. tea + gossip balcony was the perfect apartment for us to rent--located in hip cihangir and with two balconies we always found time for a glass of wine on the back terrace! there is nothing better than catching up with old friends over a glass of wine on a balcoy in istanbul! metehan was really helpful & the flat is very well done. the decoration is tasteful and comfortable. i actually recommended the flat and istanbul sweet home to my friends who live in istanbul & often have out of town guests. it's a wonderful alternative to a hotel and really makes you feel like you are a resident of istanbul (for a short time anyways...).

I couldn't ask for a better place to be in my birthday. I went there with my partner and a friend and we had a great time. The Tea & Gossip apartment is located in a great area of Istanbul. The neighbourhood is full of original places to shop, eat, look (especially if you like antiques)or even enjoy a local hamam.
We spent most of our nights dining in a local bar just 50 metres away from the apartment. Great food and really cheap.There are other places next to each other and it's very local -forget the Tourist-likeness of Sultanahmet crowd.

The area is quite central with easy access to Taksim, Istiklal Caddesi (a pedestrianised street full of shops and places to eat or have a drink).

Discounted supermarket DIA and Carrefours are close by plus other local supermarkets open 24 hours.

In short, a great place, great location and Mete & Tarkan are great hosts.

Would I come back? DEFINITELY

I already convinced a friend to consider going there :)

Me and my friend stayed in the Tea & Gossip Balcony apartment for a week in february 2008. We enjoyed it very much. Outside it was raining and snowing, inside it was cosy, warm and comfortable. We made long walks every day and the apartment was a good place to come back to. It felt like home.

Vielen Dank Metehan für Deine Flexibilität, Deine Hilfe und die schöne Wohnung die Du uns zur Verfügung gestellt hast. Bei "Istanbul Sweet Home" haben wir das bekommen was wir uns vorab versprochen haben. Wer sich nach Privatspähre in angenehmen Ambiente sehnt und nahe dem Stadtzentrum (auf der europäischen Seite) wohnen möchte ist bei Metehan richtig aufgehoben. See you next time again Mete :-)
Owner's Remark Sep 8, 2007
Dear Paula and José,

Thanks for your suggestion about the plants in the apartment. I have immediately added more substance into the pots.

Hope to see you again!


Paula and José Sep 8, 2007
Dear Metehan

We took care of the plants, as they were ours. We think they (2 of them) need more substract and have been given too much water.

The accomodation is very compfortable and quiet, as a good base for exploring an "Always Awaken" city.

Best wishes and willing to see you again in Lisbon.

Paula and José

Hello I would strongly recommend this apartment. My boyfriend and I rented the 4th flat for 1 year, in 2006. Great neighbourhood, and we loved our clean and well maintained apartment. Thanks your hospitality Metehan!!! We would love to rent from you on our next stay.

Lieber Metehan,
ich möchte Dir auf diesem Wege nocheinmal für Deine Bemühungen und die Bereitstellung der Wohnung Cihangir N0.4 (Tea & Gossip Balcony) danken.
Ich kann dieses Appartmenthaus ´jedem, der nach Istanbul fährt bestens emfehlen. Abgesehen von dem hohen Einrichtungsstandard und der tollen Ausstattung, ist die zentrale Lage unschlagbar. Das Viertel ist als solches sehr ruhig und schön, jedoch bedarf es nur 5 Minuten zu Fuß und man sit mitten im Geschehen. Wenn ich zurück nach Istanbul komme, komme ich auf jeden Fall auf die Wohnung zurück.
Metehan, solltest Du irgendwann nach Deutschland kommen, so melde Dich bei uns.
Liebe Grüße
Istanbul Aufenthalt  
Lieber Metehan,
vielen, vielen Dank für deine Mühe und tolle Wohnung im Zentrum Istanbuls.
Die Wohnung im Sevgen-Apartment (Tea & Gossip Balcony) ist ohne Bedenken jedem zu empfelen und meine erste Adresse für meine zukünftigen Aufenthalte in Istanbul. Sie ist sehr gemütlich eigerichtet und bietet viel Ruhe und Comfort. Nicht zu vergessen ist auch der Stadtteil Cihangir, der alles bietet: die tollen Teehäuser, die kleinen Läden und die interessanten Nachbarn. Baldiges Wiedersehen und alles Gute

Dear Metehan, I just wanted to tell you how much I have enjoyed the flat at Palaska Sokak 5. The layout, design and artwork are spectacular and it is in one of the best locations in Istanbul. The area is the best of old and new Istanbul. You should also be proud of Kadir, who is really helpful. It has been a wonderful year and I look forward to returning in the future. Thank you for everything.
