“Perfect home for your stay inIstanbul”

Reviewed 7 Jul 2015

We stayed at Old Istanbul Studio for four nights during our time in Istanbul and loved it! The studio itself is beautifully designed, has secure windows and doors and has everything you could need - a great kitchen, comfy bed, washing machine as well as the little things like soap, laundry detergent, etc. Upon arrival we were greeted by Ozkan who had also organised a fresh loaf of bread, eggs, milk and butter for us for our stay. He was very friendly and provided great tips for our stay in Istanbul. The best thing about this studio is undoubtedly the location. It's situated just outside the city area in an authentic neighbourhood with children playing on the street, plenty of local coffee shops and supermarkets and lots of beautiful buildings/houses. Would absolutely recommend to anyone looking for a comfortable, authentic experience while in Istanbul!

“Fantastic Studio in the heart of the Old City”

Reviewed 19 Dec 2014

First of all, thanks to the Ozkan and Peter for being so thoughtful from the moment we booked the place. the pictures don't do the studio justice and the pictures are great! we were greeted by Ozkan on arrival and he was very helpful and honest about the area. The restaurants and coffee shops are great, we would recommend Forno where we walked into a street party held every Sunday and everyone brings a traditional dishes and the food is shared between everyone. The tourist spots are a bus ride away and I would recommend you getting a Istanbul travel card, the Wednesday market is just at the top of the hill and there is a bakery on Vodina St that does the best biscuits 10 for 3TL. Amazing place, it has everything that you need and you will experience an Istanbul not many see!

“Perfect studio is a great location for a short stay in Istanbul”

Reviewed 19 Jul 2014

The owners, Peter and Ozkan, are extremely friendly and helpful to tell you about their wonderful city. Great location. Off the main tourist track but still close enough to walk or take public transport to all the main sights of Istanbul. If you want to feel like a local when you travel in Istanbul you need to stay here. Make sure to visit the local market on Wednesday just a 5 min walk away. Great value and the apartment is extremely clean and well stocked for those who like self catering versus a hotel. We can't wait to come back and try out one of their other apartments.

“Gladly again”

Reviewed 19 Jun 2014

We spent one week in this nice and very clean apartment.For people who don't want to see Istanbul only from the tourist side, "Old Istanbul stay" is the ideal place to live. All shops for daily needs are nearby. The sights like Sultanahmet Camii, Topkapi palace...can be reached within 30 min. walk or by bus. Different bus stops are located near the apartment. The hosts Peter and Ozkan are very nice, friendly, helpful and solicitous!

Reviewed 6 May 2014
