“Great location, well appointed and very helpful host.”
Reviewed 28 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

My husband and I had a very enjoyable eight nights here. The apartment is in a great location next to the Sishane Metro, short walk to Taksim Tunel, five minutes to the beginning of Istiklal Street or six minute walk down hill to the Karakoy tramline stop. The latter will quickly get you to all the major sites in the Old Town.

The apartment itself is spacious and well appointed including providing fundamentals such as tea, filter coffee, sugar and other basics should you be inclined to cook. We have stayed in apartments through out Europe and a distinguishing feature of Casa lo Bueno is the high level of service provided by Izel. From the very beginning he could not have been more helpful. We had technical problems trying to book online and he trusted us to pay on arrival. He arranged the airport transfers, provided two public transport cards, a local mobile phone (we are Luddites), and gave an introductory walk around the neighbourhood, despite our delayed late arrival. He goes the extra mile to make sure your stay is enjoyable, without being intrusive.

Highly recommended.

“Wonderful return stay.”
Reviewed 29 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

Close to so many colorful experiences - main pedestrian street is a must for evening strolls. Close to many restaurants and coffee shops. A very thoughtful and likable apartment owner/manager.

“Great location and host!!!”
Reviewed 13 April 2015 for a stay in March 2015

We traveled with our sons aged 5 & 7 and had a great time in Istanbul. Cuturally and historically, it offers just as much as the other great cities of the world such as London and Paris. The flat- located in the uber-trendy Galata district- was very modern, tastefully decorated and very comfortable.

We either walked or took the tram to all of the sights we visited and the feeling one gets when returning back to Galata is that its the most vibrant part of the city.

Izel, our host was always available when we needed to contact him and he even gave a member of our group a tour of the area at 2AM shortly after our arrival.

We hope to return again to this great city and to this apartment.

“Beautiful, old-word charm apartment in unbeatable location”
Reviewed 11 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

We had a superb 6-day stay in Istanbul with our three children (ages 14, 11, and 9), in large part thanks to this gorgeous apartment and the hospitality of its owner, Izel. The apartment is exactly as advertised: it is a spacious apartment with two large bedrooms and a comfortable living room with a pull-out sofabed. It is in a beautiful 1920s building, and has high ceilings, original trimwork, and wooden floors. Moreover, it is fully renovated, well-equipped, and in excellent condition and was delivered to us immaculately clean. When we booked the apartment, we had to take Izel's word for the fact that it was in a great location. But that only became truly apparent when we started to explore the neighborhood and the city: the apartment is right next to a metro station, a 1 minute walk to the subway-tunnel connecting Galata to Karakoy, and only a couple of minute's walk to the Galata tower itself. Moreover, it is literally surrounded by some of the city's nicest and trendiest restaurants. We felt we had a wide selection to choose from. We literally ate out every night at some remarkable restaurants all within two blocks of the apartment! Lastly, Izel was the perfect host. He provided us with useful information on Istanbul before our arrival; he arranged transport to and from the airport; he was there to greet us; and he provided constant support by phone and email during our stay. In all, top marks from our end. We would certainly repeat and give this apartment our strongest possible recommendation.

“I loved this apartment!”
Reviewed 10 April 2015 for a stay in May 2013

I really thought I had wrote a review already. The host was warm and friendly, very helpful touring the area with us to get our bearings. Everything worked well, the beds were comfortable. We enjoyed our stay very much!
