“The best stay possible”
Reviewed 8 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

We were eager to discover Istambul. We got a real treat of it. And this is in part due to our host himself and also his apartment.
The location, near Glata tower, is perfect. A lot of sites are in walking distance.
The apartment was impeccable. First the layout, the two rooms being at each end of the apartment.
The apratment has been rénovated recently, and very well renovated. It is also very wel kept and clean.
The host, upon geating us, also took time to open a map of the city to show us where the sites, transportation and other attractions were, he gave us a prepaid phone for emergencies, and also a transit crad and how to use it. Then we walk for some time in his neighbourhood to indicate a good breakfast restaurant, the nearest metro station (where we reloaded the card) and a restaurant for our late arrival dinner !!
Thank you, Isel, for all these little attentions

“great apartment and location”
Reviewed 10 November 2015 for a stay in October 2015

The apartment is tastefully renovated, clean and comfortable. Our host was friendly,informed about cultural events, efficient and really helpful. He introduced us to the neighbourhood on arrival, gave us a local mobile phone and transport cards. Transport in Istanbul is a dream, very easy to top-up cards for the metro, trams, buses etc. We were also sent a detailed message with links to many great neighbourhood restaurants and tours around Istanbul including boats on the Bosphorus and to the Princes Islands (absolutely (worth going if you have a day). The apartment is steps from Galata tower and the best of Beyoglu, yet on a quiet side street. This is the BEST neighbourhood to be in - friendly, hip and charming without the intense tourism and commerce of the old city which can be reached in minutes by tram or a scenic 25 minute walk across Galata bridge. Our host arranged pick up at the airport and took us for coffee on departure, also by airport service.

“Hidden Gem in Galata”
Reviewed 25 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

The stay at Casa La Bueno was one to remember. This place is a hidden gem. Stone throw away from Galata tower, the flat is immaculate and tastefully decorated. Easily accessible from Tunel, Tophane or Karikoy metro stations, the flat provided us a modern and lavish base and yet offer the "old city" living. Galata is a wonderful location for cafes, bars, restaurants and quirky shops, Izel was really amazing with his introduction to the apartment and helped us with maps, local information and even a local mobile phone.

We will definitely be back!

“Fabulous Apartment 2 minutes from the Galata Tower”
Reviewed 8 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Perfectly situated, well appointed and really comfortable apartment with easy access to the historic heart of Istanbul.My friend and I arrived there after a long drive through 7 European countries and it was a haven of peace (with great showers!) Izel is a wonderful host, really helpful and speaks excellent English. He even went as far as arranging my taxi to the airport. If you're planning to visit Istanbul I'd really recommend you book one of the Casa lo Bueno apartments,

“Very good place to stay”
Reviewed 9 July 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Apartment was in excellent condition when we arrived. Exactly like the pictures obviously much smaller than it shows in pictures but sufficient space for our 5 people.
Host (Izel) was very kind, informative and helpful. He went above and beyond to make our stay pleasant, enjoyable and safe
Location was excellent ! Although we were very close to the centre of activities but still in the quite and clean street.

Management Response

Many thanks for your kind Review, was a pleasure hosting you in Istanbul thus getting to know you and your family.

Incase there will be potential guests reading the review before reading the info on our listing; we'd like to insert an explanation to your respected comment telling 'it is much smaller than it shows in the pictures but sufficient space for our 5 people.'

Our apt is 120 sq.meters with 2 bedrooms well designed for 4 people, we can accommodate up to 6 people using the custom made ortophedic queen size sleeping couch in the living room that turns out to be a bedroom with a private door.

Having too many luggage for 6 people may sometimes give you a feeling that the apt is smaller than the pictures. Compared to 4 people's accommodation comfort, obviously not the same but still functional and comfortable thinking it is 120 sq mtrs and with 2 bathrooms.
