"Comfortable, convenient, clean!!"
Kismet Apt. Cosy Studio #1 was a great place for us to stay. We particularly enjoyed the local area: excellent restaurants, friendly people, safe and surrounded by history. Less than 30 minutes walk from the major tourist attractions such as the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sofia and the Grand Bazaar, the local area itself provided many interesting attractions: the local markets, the Aqueduct, Fatih Mosque and just old and historically significant buildings.
The apartment itself has about 20 steps to gain access and is small but it is very comfortable.
We were greeted by a very pleasant hostess who provided a package of food to see us through the first morning - we arrived about 9:30 pm. We hope to stay at the apartment again.
