Appartment is very good specially for a family stay of upto 5 persons. Location is not attractive as is in an off the road street. About 300 meters walk to golden horn through traditional old streets. As it's a vertically made 4 story appartment there are a lot of stairs to climb. Host is very nice and cooperative and small street grocery shops are nearby.

This place is a piece of history in the modern era! I love everything about it: the sofas, tiles, lights, windows and location. It provides a feeling of a traditional ottoman era house.

Although this is the home I booked and was looking forward to staying in, I was contacted a week prior to arrival and told that for some reason it had been overbooked and I was offered another listing instead. I'm still confused about how a home can be overbooked on Airbnb and how that mistake isn't caught until a week prior to arrival. Ozkan did his best to try to make it up to us. We were given free airport pickup, a bottle of wine, and late checkout. All of these gestures were appreciated but it should be noted that the second home was less expensive than this lovely home, so receiving the difference in price would have been appreciated and fair. Ozkan was very communicative and helpful. The home we did end up staying in was nice, but not this one that I'd been dreaming of staying in for awhile. I understand that things happen. I just hope that this type of mix up is not a common occurrence for this host.

We are sorry to read your words. The house you stayed in was equally beautiful to the green house. So beautiful is that has been featured in premier interior design magazine `Maision Frances`. We arranged your pick up , had a bottle of sparkling wine waiting for your arrival, some start up food in the fridge, and as you mention a late check out. As you stayed only two nights the difference in price was minimal. The cost of your arrival from asian side airport to center was much more than the difference of the prices and we covered your cost. We are sorry the mistake and hope we made you adequately happy

Beautiful house! Nicely decorated with even tiny details. Love the attic bedroom with the balcony! Location is at Ballat. Close to public transports. However this house is probably not very suitable for the elderly/parents with small babies/heavy luggages as you need to walk up and down the street to go to the main road. Unless you have your own transport.

Just spent a week with my family at Ozkan's place. Ozkan is lovely person and a welcoming host. This is a lovely house which is very well decorated and offers beautiful views from the top floor. One thing I would add is that this house is not suitable for a family with children as there is a permanent male tenant living in the basement (of whom we were unaware of when booking) who disapproves of the slightest noise after 10pm - in spite of it being a holiday guest house. He is rude and will think nothing of knocking on doors and windows telling you to be quiet. This was very disturbing for us as well as our children as we were trying to enjoy our holiday. We spoke to Ozkan but didn't find him helpful in this matter, so please be aware if staying with children.

We are sorry to read your words. We have had many happy families stay at the four storey green house. As it was Ramadan and the seven of you were up late with your young children until 3am eating and preparing for the fast I am sorry you felt disturbed. We are also sort that our American tenant felt very disturbed by you (because of the unusually late hour) We would have hoped because of the time of night you could have used one of the many other floors available to you.

I am a young professional loving Istanbul and Balat this Unesco world Heritage sight, here in the heart of the Old City. My passion is hospitality and welcoming guests from all over the world to this unique neighbourhood. Travel and going places fascinates me. What better than getting together with old and new friends and sharing travel stories from around the world!? So far I've collected stories from 21 countries and many cities visited from my wanderings on 5 continents! But all the places visited so far Istanbul I still rate my number one favorite place :) So please come and become my guest during your visit to Istanbul!
