We met Soraj's colleague Apo at the apartment - our flight was delayed because of weather and so we needed to contact Soraj to let Apo know we were there. Apo arrived a few minutes later (he was just checking someone else in down the road).
The apartment was great - as in the photos and there was tea, coffee, water etc provided. It was a great help to have the Istanbul travel card - all we needed to do was put the money on it and also the phone (although we kept forgetting to take it with us). The washing machine was a life saver as I was travelling to Australia (via Italy) the day after we left.
Apo arranged a taxi for us to get to the airport early in the morning which made it much easier.
Although there are not really many stairs to the apartment (perhaps 3 or 4), it is a pretty steep walk from Taksim Square metro. Not far, but steep downhill which is not great in the rain. There is a tram stop that is closer, but that is uphill with stairs. So we used the Taksim square metro stop to get there and then for travelling about we used the tram line. None of this is anything that Soraj can do anything about.
It would be a great place for a group to stay as there are 2 bedrooms.
I guess it all comes down to - would we stay here again? Answer - yes - definitely. Although, if we had luggage we would probably either get a taxi from Taksim (less than 1km, but worth it particularly if raining) or the airport.
Thanks Soraj and Apo
We ere made to feel very welcome by hospitable and friendly hosts.
The neighborhood was very middle class and surrounded by local commercial establishments and the narrow street was not terribly clean.
As the unit is at the street level, often there were people talking and wandering around rather late at night. However, it was a very safe neighborhood and very close to terrific tram & metro transportation, many services, a mall and restaurants. One in particular recommended, by our host, Akdeniz Hatay Sofrasi was only 2 minutes away and served Turkish food at its best and very reasonable.
The unit is very secure with its multiple door locking mechanisms but the mechanisms could be improved as it is very difficult to unlock.
We had originally booked another one of Soraj's apartments, but he upgraded us to this one at no extra charge due to some renovations scheduled in the other apartment. We were met by Omer (Soraj's colleague) who showed us the apartment, answered our questions, and left us with his contact details (and a Turkish mobile phone), should we need anything else. He also gave us a quick overview of the city and some suggestions for our stay. There were cold drinks in the fridge on our arrival. We didn't need to contact Omer very much during our stay, but on the one occasion that we did, he was available to answer our questions. The beds were comfortable, and everything was in good repair/working order (wifi, tv, shower, toilet, dishwasher, heating, etc.). This space was more than we needed for the 4 of us (2 couples), so it was quite comfortable. The location was convenient to Taksim Square for transit connections, but not at all noisy. We did a fair bit of walking to the sites we wanted to see (10km+ per day), but also used the trams and bus which were short distances from the apartment. Be prepared to walk up/down cobblestone hills and crumbling concrete steps in this part of the city in order to get to most places.
This was a wonderful flat! We were a family with 4 adults and 2 kids on our first trip to Istanbul. We loved the location of the Sunshine apartment. Market right out front for fresh fruit and vegetables, and a couple of small grocery stores. We were only a 2 minute walk from historia mall, which was great for some familiar food for our young kids. The tram line was only a 5-10 minute walk, and it took us easily to all the main attractions we wanted to visit.
We especially appreciated the clear directions to the flat from the airport, even translated into Turkish for us to give our driver, along with Omer's mobile number. Omer helped direct our driver, who was unfamiliar with the neighbourhood, which was wonderful. The flat is bright and clean and well decorated. Very comfortable and well-stocked. It was perfect for 6 people. The bathroom was clean, the shower had lovely hot water, the kitchen had everything we needed. Even the small details, such as a card to load to ride the public transit, was very thoughtful and made our rides easier and cheaper.
We loved Istanbul and were so very pleased with this flat, because of the hosts, the condition of the apartment, and the location. Excellent choice!
Awesome place to stay! My group of 4 went to stay during our Spring Break for a week and thought this was a perfect location for a very good price. It was right next to Taksim square (3 minute walk), which meant it was easy to access the bars/restaurants, metro, and Istikal street. The host provided us with a map of Istanbul as well as a mobile phone for Turkey which served us well. Highly recommend it for anyone staying in Istanbul!

We were pleased with the apartment that we stayed in in Istanbul. It is in the "Old City". The apartment was clean and very comfortable for the six of us to stay in for nine days. It has three bedrooms, two bathrooms (one is just a toilet and a sink) one livingroom and a kitchen. We cooked several of our meals there. Also there is a private patio right outside our kitchen door that was nice to sit outside in on nice days. It is conviniently located to public transportation (about a block or two away). Most of us have never been on a tram before but it proved to be a convinient form of transportation. The apartment is close to a modern mall that has five levels. Level one is a grocery store, level four is a food court and level five is a movie theater. There is a really nice restaurant next to the mall, We ate there three times. Along the streets there are many small stores and smaller restraurants. There is also a hospital conviniently located about a block or two away with people that translated to English for me and a pharmacy next door.
Apo met us at the apartment when we arrived and was very helpful to explain things for us such as how to get around and where things are at. He showed us a map and explained where the tourist spots were and how to get there. He gave us a phone with a Turkish sim card which came in handy once when part of our group got separated from the other part. Also he arranged a ride for us back to the airport. When we arrived at the airport, most people didn't speak English so we had to find our way around which was a little uncomfortable but then we found a car rental place at the airport and the man there spoke English. He arranged a car to pick us up and take us to the apartment. This was a nice vacation. We enjoyed the tourist spots. Our favorite place was the Grand Bazaar.
Ev rahattı ve günlük tüm gereksinimlerimizi karşılayacak donanıma sahipti. İstiklal Caddesi'ne yakın olması da büyük avantajdı. Ev sahibi ise gayet iyi niyetli bir insandı. Son derece memnun ayrıldık.
Both the house and the owner were great. Everything we needed were provided. House was clean and very close to Istiklal Street. We are all thankful for such a pleasing atmosphere.
Thanks to Soraj for this perfect apartment and his wonderful hospitality :)
The Moonlight experience was excellent too! Thanks to Sooraj who is the best hospitable host I have ever seen. It was a great flat neat and cousy. I enjoyed staying there. I defineitly recommend it to family and friends.
I was in Istanbul last month and it was great.The apartment "Ruby" where my friends and I were accommodated was really good - location is great,near Taksim square and Istiklal street and there is good connection to different kinds of public transort (tram,metro,bus). It's fully equipped ( kitchen, fridge, washing and drying machine, iron and ironing board, 2 bathrooms, TV, internet...).Soraj,the host is very nice and friendly person and he helped us a lot.I definitely recommend you this apartment ,cause it's in great part of city and you will enjoy it.
Je connais Soraj depuis quleques anneeés. Il est un vrai professionnel. Il peut organiser parfaitment tout ce dont vous avez besoin. Il est trés aimable et serviable. Vous pouvez profiter trés bien de son amitié. Vous vous sentirez vite chez vous grâce à excellent son service. Une de ses qualités les plus importantes est qu'il est toujours ponctuel. Je suis sûr que vous apprécierez beaucoup sa coopération. Je lui conseille sans aucun doute!
From our initial contact with Soraj, we found him very professional to deal with.Soraj responded very quickly to all our communication. He kindly helped with carrying luggage to room and provided us with local information including recommended restaurants, bakeries and location of nearest metro etc. The apartment was wonderful, clean and modern as advertised. We recently spent five nights at Soraj's apartment and it was better than we could have imagined. We felt at home in the apartment, really comfortable and well equipped. We will tell everyone we know to stay here and will definitely stay again when we return to Istanbul.
We have found Soraj's place by a close friends advice and it was really worth it. I stayed there with my family. We were 8 people and flat was big enough for us to have a comfortable stay. Very nice place in a great location to explore the city. Good connections into every direction. It was really clean and cozy apartment. Soraj was very friendly and also helped us to explore the city. It was one of the most amazing holidays for us. I highly recommend Soraj's flat in Fatih to eveyone. I also want to thanks Soraj for his great hospitality.
Soraj was my classmate from Boğaziçi University.We know eachother about 10 years.When Soraj told me about airbnb and his desicion to let furnished flats I told him that is a great idea and I was sure he will be succesful in this business.After 1 year, I can see that I was right and he is doing his job excellent.Now we are working together and trying to give the best services to our guests.
