About this listing
Comfortable, clean, spacious room. New, furniture for your use only, and clean kitchen and bathroom facilities, next to Capa Sehremini tram station. Fabulous view of Istanbul from your own balcony. Easy access to universities, airport, tourism.
This room is for non-smokers only and will suit responsible and clean guests. Gay friendly.
Your room has a new and comfortable queen-sized bed, new and empty wardrobe and drawers for your use only, table, chairs, rugs, blackout curtains, net curtains and its own covered balcony boasting a magnificent view across Istanbul.
Alcohol friendly, but please don’t throw up.
You may use the kitchen and sitting room as well as all facilities, but please leave everything as you find it. My kitchen, WC and shower (very large shower cabinet,) are spotless and hygienic and I will appreciate your co-operation in keeping them that way.
I ask that major eating be confined to the kitchen, which is large and has table and chairs.
There is a (shared) clothes airer which you will be able to put on your balcony when you do washing.
Your two radiators have separate control in your room for you to regulate the temperature.
Interaction with guests
I am a female university professor and out at least four days a week from 8.30 to 5.30 so you will have the place to yourself.
I will be available for help and advice at weekends and evenings. I can take you to my gym and help with visits at the weekend. During the working week I can be available by phone but not when I'm in class.
If you are interested in a longer period we can discuss that. If you want to have people round, we can discuss that also.
NB The flat is on the sixth floor and there is no lift but if I can manage it, I'm sure you can, and it's worth it for the view.
Other things to note
Capa is a vibrant part of the old city with every kind of shop, and numerous restaurants and cafes within metres of the front door. All the surrounding streets comprise a lively shopping area with Macdonalds if you really need that, a central park and seating area, a wonderful market on Tuesdays, and a handy gym just minutes away, major banks, money exchange, as well as many other shops on the main road by the tramway outside.
A considerable part of the old city wall is about 15 minutes walk or one stop on the tram. Trams are frequent and the most comfortable mode of transport but there are buses outside as well as mini shared buses and a taxi rank.
This is not a touristic area as such, so there are not noisy bars or clubs nearby but there are a couple of pubs which I haven’t been in so can’t comment on, but will be glad to take a look together. You will not be troubled by night revellers.
Istanbul University Medical Faculty is literally across the road and other major universities are served by the trams and buses outside. The Metrobus is in easy walking distance. Taksim is under 30 minutes by tram and metro or there is a direct bus outside, if you want to go to the centre of Istanbul.
You are asked not to disturb my quiet neighbours and sorry, I don’t allow casual overnight sleepers.
Major eating in kitchen only, please, unless you make arrangements with me to set up a table on your balcony. Please keep the kitchen as clean and tidy as you will find it.
Smoking is not allowed anywhere. Children are not allowed.
Well behaved dogs are allowed.
I don't allow cats as they can be very destructive as well as climbing everywhere and getting into my cupboards, clothing, bed etc.
