“Great hosts, great apartment in a great location near transit and great neighborhood”
Reviewed 20 October 2015 for a stay in April 2015

Izel and Doret treated us like family - they arranged for transportation from and to the airport, toured with us, and showed us the best place for beans (fasulye) near the Suleymanie mosque, among other important landmarks. We loved the apartment - it is clean and airy and convenient. We loved their city. Can't wait to go back!

“Fantastic location, very comfortable apartment, excellent host”
Reviewed 29 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Casa LoBeueno #1 is situated in a fantastic neighbourhood walking distance to great cafes and restaurants and just a short walk to the tram.
The apartment is very comfortable in a secure building with everything you could need, the two bedrooms are of generous size, very comfortable beds and the main living area has great light with plenty of space.
The apartment was very clean and tidy.
There was only two of us staying however you could very comfortably accommodate two couples and then there is also the sofa for additional people and given the size of the apartment you would not feel cramped.
Izel and Doret are very knowledgeable of the area and very generous with their time, providing some great tips on where to go and what to do.
Doret greated us on our arrival quite late on our first night and took the time to explain all of the essential information and give us an indication of where to go for coffee etc the following morning.
Izel met us on our first morning and took us for a great walk around the neighborhood, giving us a really good sense of where everything was. He answered all of our questions and made us feel very welcome.
Highly recommend Casa LoBueno#1 as a great place to stay.

“Brilliant”
Reviewed 26 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

What a great place to stay.
This apartment is central to almost everthing you might want to see in Istanbul. Very close to the Galata Tower and Istiklal Street. It is also close to the funicular that takes you up and down the hill to the trams that go to the Blue Mosque, Topkapi Palace, The Gand Bazaar and so on, or a walk across the Galata Bridge to the spice market.
There is a great range of bars, cafes and restaurants within 5 minutes walk, as well as a small supermarket close by.
The apartment is lovely, clean and modern and the lounge has a great view of the Galata Tower.
The owner is delightful and very helpful, he arranged transfers from the airport and met us at the apartment. On arrival he also gave us a short tour of the area and showed us the location of the supermarket, good restuarants to eat at and showed us how to use the funicular and the public transport system. It made our stay so much easier!
We spent six nights in the apartment and I would highly recommend it to others.

“Great location, well appointed and very helpful host.”
Reviewed 28 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

My husband and I had a very enjoyable eight nights here. The apartment is in a great location next to the Sishane Metro, short walk to Taksim Tunel, five minutes to the beginning of Istiklal Street or six minute walk down hill to the Karakoy tramline stop. The latter will quickly get you to all the major sites in the Old Town.

The apartment itself is spacious and well appointed including providing fundamentals such as tea, filter coffee, sugar and other basics should you be inclined to cook. We have stayed in apartments through out Europe and a distinguishing feature of Casa lo Bueno is the high level of service provided by Izel. From the very beginning he could not have been more helpful. We had technical problems trying to book online and he trusted us to pay on arrival. He arranged the airport transfers, provided two public transport cards, a local mobile phone (we are Luddites), and gave an introductory walk around the neighbourhood, despite our delayed late arrival. He goes the extra mile to make sure your stay is enjoyable, without being intrusive.

Highly recommended.

“Wonderful return stay.”

Close to so many colorful experiences - main pedestrian street is a must for evening strolls. Close to many restaurants and coffee shops. A very thoughtful and likable apartment owner/manager.
