10 stars. I cannot recommend this flat enough!! Our stay was amazing. Starting with our excellent host Ibriham. From meeting us at Galata tower through check out, he made everything so easy and genuinely cared. The hospitality alone made us want to return.
The flat itself was spacious and clean, however, the view is what you should come for. I could sit in that living room for hours staring at the Bosphorus strait and watching the ships.
The beds were comfy, and it had beautiful towels too.
The neighborhood was perfect, located in Galata, right above Karaköy. The area felt very safe and has many shops & cafes in the surrounding streets. A great restaurant up the hill is "Güney". Also the best baclava in Istanbul is a 6 minute walk, so spoiled with the location. Galata is hilly so if you have problems walking maybe you find that a bit difficult.
The flat will give you a very authentic feel of Istanbul. The views, yes, but the hospitality that thrives in this city is so well experienced in this AirBB. Trust me, it's great.
