Offering space, comfort, and a prime location in Beyoğlu at the heart of Istanbul, this flat, has two large bedroom one kitchen one bathroom and one common area flat is located on Anadolu sokak, just one -two minutes walk from the famous İstiklal street.
The apartment has just been renovated and redecorated...
I'll be more than happy to share my top tips of the area and point you in the right direction :)
I will be here to help in any way I can.
Visitors will enjoy close proximity to İstiklal Avenue, Istanbul’s most famous shopping street which welcomes nearly 2 million visitors daily during weekends, while Taksim Square and Gezi Park are within a 5-6 minute walk.. while the apartment is also located next to supermarket and a host of small shops and restaurants.
Very convenient for public transport, just a 5 minute walk to the main road.
Havatas is a service provided at the airport, that will get you to Taksim for around 10 TL (approx. 3 Euros) However, you'll then need to walk around 6-7 min. to my place

If you're looking for active night-life, the apartment suits you: it's very central, in an area bustling with pubs and terraces. If you want to see the city and have a good night's sleep, forget it. There is a terrace right across your windows. Even with the windows closed (not a great idea in the hot Istanbul) you'll hear not only their music, their chatter, but even the rolling dices of the backgammon players. Also, unless you don't draw carefully the curtain you'll have people at the same level with your bed, 2-3 meters across, willy-nilly watching you (OK, this might sound like a plus for some). More obnoxious, there is a bar on your right, and they don't stop their booming music until 3-4am. Add a next door neighbor dutifully playing his violin exercises around midnight. There's no wi-fI. Also, if you rent an apartment instead of a hotel room, you count on doing some cooking: there is a desk in the dormitory and no other table but a coffee table, really inconvenient to eat at.

When we arived, a friend of Faruk told us that there was a problem with the bathroom the flat we booked and Faruk was busy at the moment. So he showed us an alternative. Which in fact wasn't a real one for hyginical reason. After complaining Faruk showed us a better one the next day. We moved and had a beautiful time in istanbul. Very good and quick solution. Thanks!

My only request to the host, prior to booking the flat was: "My only concern is whether the street/building is in a noisy area. Thank you for your clarifications." He failed to tell me about the conditions I mentioned in my review. Also, at the time there was no photo with the terrace visible from the apartment's window, as it is now. Otherwise, Faruk was friendly, he was there to give us the keys right in time, and he tried to help about a ring my wife misplaced in the apartment, without success, though. I can understand that what is noisy for some isn't for others, but I was clear about my request and my concerns. Also, I did not complain in the first 2 days, hoping that the noise and the music were accidental, not a permanent issue. When I finally did complain, Faruk said there's nothing to be done and the customer service of 9flats dutifully informed me that I should have complained in the first 24 hours after my arrival, so my complaint, 3 days after it is no longer their concern.

I haven't had the opportunity to meet personally Faruk.
We've kept in touch through e-mail and mobile.
Faruk has always responded promptly to my messages and proved an attentive and polite person!
