The facilities were adequate for my needs but the apartment had an odour which I couldn't stan. Opening the windows didn't fix the problem...

Great location

Posted Jun 26, 2015
Pros: The location, the fact nobody would bother you trying to sell you a carpet.
Cons: Better contact with people who run the place. If something does not work in the apartment, the renter should know before and or compensated.
Location: See above. Easy to take the Tunnel to the old Istanbul or the Tram towards Timsir Wonderful transportation system.
Very dismayed at first not to be able to get in contact with the property as they required. Even Expedia could not get through and when at the airport in Istanbul my taxi could not contact them. Once at the apartment, I found out that the people in charge are mostly students who rotate their schedule and so are not always on the premises or else are sleeping in one of the apartment. They mean well and are very willing to help but .. The washing machine in my apartment did not work and I had to ask for the key to any other vacant apartment to do my wash. I think I have seen most of the units! I could go on about this saga , just be aware of timing with there machine. Apart from that, the apartment itself was nice, modern, bright and reasonably clean. If you need more towels, just ask. No coffee machine but an electric kettle and tea bags and Nescafé . The apartment I had was on the 1st floor and the terrace is above the 4th. I spent 2 weeks there and if it had not been for these 2 problems, I would have been very happy. It's in a very safe neighborhood, quiet although 2 minutes from the Galata Towers. Plenty of restaurants, cafes and small markets for fruit, bread etc..

Super Lage, ansonsten unterirdisch

Posted May 13, 2015
Das Hotel liegt zwei Gehminuten vom Galataturm entfernt. Tolle Lage. Das Zimmer war jedoch eine Zumutung. Von den vier Rollos vor den Fenstern funktionierten zwei nicht, ein drittes Lag sogar defekt auf dem Boden. Das Badezimmer war unsauber, Wasserhahn und zwei Handtuchhalter nicht richtig befestigt. Den Wasserkocher musste ich vor der Benutzung erstmal schrubben! Fast schon niedlich erschien da die Tatsache, dass auf dem Tisch ein Bilderrahmen stand, der als Motiv kein Foto, sondern den Ikea-Hintergrund, also Artikelnummer und Produktbezeichnung beinhaltete!!! Ich würde das Hotel niemals empfehlen und nie wieder besuchen! P.S.: Die Jungs und Mädels am Empfang waren sehr nett und haben sich viel Mühe gegeben, konnten die Probleme aber auch nicht beheben.

Good hotel, great location

Posted Apr 23, 2015 on Hotels
We (family of 4 with 2 kids) got bumped into a very small room (#8), which was a shock as it was nothing like the pictures we say in Hotels.com (dining table, much larger dining and bedroom). We insisted in getting into a larger flat, got it eventually. The guy was really helpful, though he was temp. scared to give us the larger flat even though it was empty. Anyway, that larger flat was where we stayed, and it was quite comfortable. Location is fantastic right next to Galata tower. Asking the VIP Suites to book Pickup taxi was a mistake (hindsight) as it cost 65 Euros as opposed to standard 60 TL. Worse the hotel made us wait at Arrivals & worst was they took us to the wrong place, so we spent 2 hours on the road before reaching the hotel. Folks manning the desk at hotel were really nice and helpful and made our stay very comfortable. Amenities within flat are decent and clean but hotel lobby is messy, lift is really small (claustrophobic!). The shower hot water wasn't consistent at times or even cold at times but we didn't mind it too much as it would get fine after a couple of minutes. The TV is quite small, don't go by the photos. Overall we had a positive experience in this place except the first day which was tiring with bad taxi service and shuffling between flats. We booked it 1 week before we arrived in Istanbul so can't complain too much as we had very few options.

Sehr gute ruhige Lage direkt am Galata Tower

Posted Apr 5, 2015
Pros: Am Besten war die Ausstattung mit Möbeln und die Küchenmöbel, alles sehr neu
Cons: Eine bessere Ausstattung der Küche, irgendwelche Haken für Garderobe o.ä, 2 Stühle wären sehr hilfreich, ebenso Nachtschränke
Location: in der Nähe des Galata- Towers, es gibt diverse Lokale und Geschäfte in der Nähe der Bosporous ist zu Fuß erreichbar
Bei unserer Ankunft um 21.30 Uhr stellte sich heraus, dass unser Apartment schon belegt war und kein Zimmer mehr frei war. Wir wurden dann nach langen Telefonaten der Angestellten für die erste Nacht in der Nähe in einem anderen Hotel untergebracht, hatten aber dann nur ein kleines 1- Zimmer- Apartment statt eine 2- Zimmer- Wohnung und mussten am nächsten Tag umziehen. Die Beschreibung der Ausstattung bei Expedia stimmt nur teilweise. Ein separater Essbereich und diverse andere Ausstattung ist nicht vorhanden. Das Geschirr besteht aus 2 Tellern, 2 Tassen und 2 Gläsern, für ein 4- Personen- Apartment ziemlich wenig. Auch sonst in der Küche Minimal- Ausstattung. Der Satellitenempfang zeigte ca 600 türkischsprachige Sender, aber keinen einzigen in Deutsch oder Englisch, war also nicht zu gebrauchen. Das Personal war sehr bemüht und freundlich und hat versucht, die Mißstände zu beheben.

Inte som beskrivet

Posted Feb 24, 2015 on Hotels
Vi åkte den 15 februari 2015. I receptionen hade de ingen aning om vår reservation. Jag visade för dem reservationen och betalningen. Lägenheten var inte samma som jag hade sett i foto. Inget matbord, ingen kafé kockare, köksutrustningen var bristfällig, inga stolar och sängbord, ingen DVD-spelare etc...Jag var tvungen att be om städning och det var en gång på 5 dagar, inte varje dag som lovat. Hotels.com hade inte meddelat hotellet om vår bokning och betalning.
