Hi. I work as a photojournalist and rent my place often when I go travelling. The flat is really cosy and comfortable. Uskudar is great for people who want to experience real neighbourhood instead of touristic spots. You can reach everywhere by boat.
The flat is very comfortable and away from the chaos of the city. However, by public boats or metro you can reach the old town or Taksim in 20 minutes.
You can use all parts of the flat but you can not use the wardrobe in the bedroom as it is full. I will empty the wardrobe only for long term guests.
Interaction with guests
The place I am renting is an independent flat so I wont be around. But you can always reach me by mail or (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) for all your questions concerning the flat or your plans in Istanbul. I have wifii at home.
Other things to note
There is tea, coffee and drinking water available as a compliment. I also leave basic ingredients like oil and salt for use. Shampoo, soap and toilet paper are also provided.
Please make sure that you lock the door while away.
I work as a photojournalist for a travel/ culture magazine and I am also doing my PhD in social anthropology about nomadic reindeer herders in Mongolia. That's why I get to travel often and I am very interested in different cultures. I like both hosting people and being hosted myself while travelling.
