I expect them not to use common terrace after 12 o'clock at night since Some of my neighboors live very close to there.

Gurcan was an excellent, warm host who communicated well. His apartment is beautiful, well-stocked, and large. (Relative, for this New Yorker!) The Cihangir neighborhood is also super cool, with plenty of great food options and cool galleries and shops. Gurcan also left us some great suggestions for breakfast in the area! (Definitely get his suggestions for restaurants.) Would absolutely stay again.

Very Nice flat ! Street is calm, beds are confortable, very clean. Gurcan was very helpful during our stay. The terrace is amazing: one of the most beautiful view of Istanbul. As said this is a réal flat, not a perfect airbnb hôtel flat. I Will definitely recommend to my friends and come back! Awesome

My 1st visit to Istanbul over the Easter Holidays was amazing! Thank you Gurcan for his apartment which is centrally located between Taksim Square and the Galata Bridge which crosses over the Golden Horn to the Sultanahmet area. The apartment is very well equipped and feels like home for me. The roof terrace offers an amazing view around the Cihangir district but unfortunately, there weren't any chairs for me to sit up there to enjoy the view (maybe it was still too cold). Gurcan is very helpful and responsive to my questions on how to go about in Istanbul and i am very appreciative for that. Hopefully i will get to meet him in person the next time i visit Istanbul. Highly recommended host!

Gurcan was a great host and took care of us very well - we felt very welcomed. The place is very nice and spacious (we were four people and enjoyed it very much). The kitchen is well equipped, heating works perfectly and the neighbors are very friendly. The location is perfect, we could walk to the main attractions and were in a lively, hip, but still quiet neighborhood. Another thing that is very important for me: It is a really authentic flat, not an apartment somebody only uses for renting it out to tourists. Highly recommended!

Gurcan was a great host - easy to communicate with, came over and provided extra sheets and a heater when requested, etc. Apartment is comfortable - small quibbles like although the shower had warm water, the sink did not. But that is minor - it's a nice fun place. The neighborhood is fantastic - just meters away from great eateries and walking areas. For example, we highly recommend Babel - a restaurant about 50 meters from Gurcan's place - take a right outside the building and walk down the cobblestone towards Istiklal Caddesi, and Babel is right where the road turns. Taxis are always very easy to catch right outside the building door. So great, fun neighborhood, but know that it can be a little noisy too, so if you have babies and need real quiet after 9pm, there may be some cars honking outside. Overall, we would definitely stay here again.

Gurcan heeft het keurig geregeld allemaal. Er lag een brief voor ons klaar met een welkomstwoord en wat handige handleidingen voor apparatuur in huis. Er stonden enorme jerrycans klaar voor ons met een pomp voor schoon drinkwater, er lagen koekjes, wat spullen in de koelkast dat we konden gebruiken. De bedden waren keurig gedekt en er was eigenlijk helemaal niets op aan te merken. Het huisje was prima en dekte de lading 'cozy flat'volledig. Een knusse een gezellige woning waar we ons onmiddelijk thuisvoelden. De straat waaraan het ligt is niet te druk, dus van herrie geen last; ook dank zij goed isolerende ramen. Winkeltjes en cafeetjes op de hoek. De Galata-toren, het Taksim plein, en de Bosporus allemaal binnen loopafstand. Wij vonden het fantastisch. Voordat we gingen heeft Gurcan ons nog een plattegrondje gestuurd via de mail, en via de mail is hij ook goed bereikbaar mocht je vragen hebben. Een heerlijk bed ook. Heerlijk geslapen daar. En dat terras boven. Heertlijk kun je daar relaxen en genieten van de skyline van de oude stad. Als ik weer naar Istanbul ga dan weet ik waar ik zijn moet. Voor mij was er niets op aan te merken. Wij danken Gurcan voor zijn gastvrijheid. We hebben hem 1 maal ontmoet, dit afgesproken via de mail. En we zagen en bijzonder aardige man die zelf ook graag reist, en die weet wat een reiziger prettig vindt. Cijfer? Voor mij ( voor ons! we waren met z'n vieren) een 10!
