“Awesome view. Great Location.”

I am so glad we choose to stay at this apartment. The neighborhood is residential, so we got a really nice feel for the people of Istanbul.

The apartment itself is very nice- upscale and modern, and the view is spectacular. There's a cab stand (Oz Taxi) just around the corner, so it was easy to get almost anywhere without too much trouble.

Coming home in a taxi was more problematic. Outside of the taxi transfer from the airport, we were never able to get a cab driver to take us back to the apartment itself... The closest we got a cab to drop us off was a couple of blocks away, and all the other taxi drivers flatly refused to bother. (I guess it's too out of the way?) We ended up taking taxis to places in the morning, then hopping on the metro in the evening to get home, which worked out just fine.

Pros:
- Seriously awesome view
- Modern & comfortable apartment
- Washer and Dryer (yay!)
- Best location for walking to local restaurants in Taksim
- Easy walking distance to restaurants and shops
- Pretty quiet, considering it's a giant metropolis.

Cons:
- No WIFI
- Giant Flat Screen TV, but every single station is in German. (That would be a Pro if you speak German I suppose...) so if you were hoping to catch some local TV flavor, or even maybe a BBC news channel, you are out of luck.

Also, be prepared to walk up and down some serious hills. If you do take the metro, consider spending another token and riding the funicular lift up the hill to Taksim Square and then walking downhill back to the apartment. The first time we got off at the closer stop, but then had to walk up the biggest and steepest and longest flight of stairs to get to the top. Which isn't something you'll be too keen on after a full day of walking tours and site seeing.

“Fantastic location, view, and a lovely modern apartment”

We had five persons in our group and were quite comfortable at this lovely apartment with the most beautiful view. We had all the amenities we needed, except for wifi and a microwave, both of which would have made our 11 night stay at this lovely apartment much more comfortable.

We also very much appreciated Serdal's wonderful hospitality. Thank you Serdal for everything.

Also loved the location of this apartment. I was able to go daily to Cihangir yoga classes (less than a 7 minute walk through shortcuts) and a very easy walk to all the shopping places near Taksim square.

This was a fantastic experience and I hope to make it back to Istanbul again soon!
