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 space

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.

Guest access

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.

Selcen was a wonderful host, she showed me around the flat, gave me a shelf in the fridge, provided everything that I would need from laundry detergent to towels. She told me about the neighborhood, recommended good restaurants to go to, and pointed out important things to know around Uskudar. Overall I thought that the flat was excellent, it was in a quiet and safe neighborhood so sleeping was easy, but was never far from anything in Istanbul .

A nice clean Berlin-style flat for 2 persons. Very well equipped kitchen, there are supermarkets nearby. The area is safe and quiet. One can easily get to the centre by boat or train. Selcen is a friendly person, easy to deal with. Recommended. Уютная тихая квартира в берлинском стиле: белые стены с яркими акцентами и необычными фотографиями. В квартире творческая атмосфера, нам понравилось. Ванная небольшая и забавная: душ совмещен с туалетом. В доме хорошая слышимость, но соседи не шумные. Кухня отлично оборудована, готовить приятно. Рядом несколько крупных супермаркетов и небольшие магазинчики с мясом, с хлебом, с овощами. Район жилой, безопасный. До центра можно быстро добраться на метро или приятно и дешево доплыть на пароме через Босфор. Хозяйка очень приятная в общении, прекрасно и быстро решает возникающие вопросы.

Very neat and clean apartment, washing machine available for use as well. Nice, new IKEA-like furnishings. Good location close to ferries and Marmaray, in the heart of true Uskudar. Would do it all over again.

Nice flat in quiet place, close to some supermarkets and diners. 10 min walk to Bosfor enbankment, metro station and ferry-boat station, so it's easy to explore both the western and eastern parts of Istanbul.

Everything was ok. The flat is located on asian side, not near touristic places. But there is a lot of transport near this place - buses, dolmushes, Marmaray trains and sea boats. Selcen were very kind. And she helped us in non-standard situation when we needed to leave our suitcase in her flat a day earlier.

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.
