We thoroughly enjoyed the neighbourhood which was very close to the Suleymaniye mosque and within walking distance downhill to the spice market and to the grand bazaar. The house was comfortable and spacious. It is very close to the mosque so you can hear the call to prayer loudly but we didn't hear it after the 2nd or 3rd night. Zeynep left us 2 Istanbul transport cards which was very handy and we topped up to use the tram (cheaper than buying a token each time).

Localisation très pratique, les sites historiques et touristiques sont accessibles à pied. Quartier universitaire agréable et calme. Superbe vue du logement de l'étage sur les toits de la bibliothèque et la mosquée Süleymaniye. La cuisine n'est pas très grande .... juste pour les petits déjeuners. Quelques soucis d'eau chaude pour les douches en hiver.

An amazing authentic old house, with tons of space and a breathtaking view of Sulemaniye. The location is perfect, and the house is newly renovated but still has the old Ottoman feel. We had a wonderful time and would definitely go back.

Bij aankomst om 2 uur 's nachts werden we (ouders 50+ en 2 kinderen 15 en 19) hartelijk ontvangen in het huis van Zeynep. Er lagen wat eerste levensbehoeften en openbaar vervoer kaarten klaar! Het huis ligt in een levendige buurt, naast de moskee en de universiteit. Overdag zijn er wat toeristen voor de moskee, maar 's avonds is de buurt voor jezelf en de studenten. Alle grote bezienswaardigheden zijn op loopafstand. Het huis bestaat uit twee boven elkaar gelegen appartementen en een piepklein keukentje beneden. Het lijkt mij niet fijn om dat met vreemden te moeten delen, maar in ons geval hadden we het hele huis. Dat ziet er overigens prachtig uit. Smaakvolle inrichting en lekkere bedden. Wees voorbereid op heel vroeg wakker worden ... je slaapt bijna ín de moskee.

The apartment was the ideal place to calm down from the hectic of the city. A perfect little courtyard and a really nice refurbished wood house, with a perfect view on suleymaniye mosque. 5 min to the underground, 5 minutes to the grand bazar. I would always recommend the place, as well as Zeynep, a wonderful host, that cared really about us and our stay in Istanbul. It was perfect!

Our stay was perfect. We arrived quite late ( after midnight). We were warmly welcomed. Everything was ready and it felt so cosy. The location is perfect. One footstep away for the mosque ( the view over the city is breathtaking especially at sunset ) and the grand bazaar. It also takes only a handful of minute to go downhill and enjoy the bosphorus. Zeynep checked on us everyday to ensure we had everything needed. I have nothing to add . Beautiful week end trip. Great location , very cute house with ideal view on the mosque. Thank you Zeynep for hosting us !
