Me, my wife and 2 friends stayed during 3 nights in this modern and cozy appartment (Casa lo Bueno Nr.3) right next to the Galata tower. It's perfect for 2 couples as it has 2 bathrooms, 2 sleeping rooms and a living room (ok, there's a kitchen too - but who wants to cook in a city with such restaurants and incredible food like Istanbul !?)
The flat - especially the bathroom - was very clean (that's allways most important too my wife). The location is perfect, as almost every highlight is in walking distance (always most important too me). The street is calm during night time. The interieur is modern and friendly. It's realy a nice appartment and you get what you see on the homepage's pictures.
The host, Izel, was great an took good care of us. During our stay he even equiped us with a turkish cell phone - just in case we would need help. Izel was very kind and attentiv. In the paper work he spotted that my wife an I would spend our birthdays in Istanbul. What a great surprise when he passed by and presented us with a home made birthday cake. On top Izel is a very realiabel guy. In the booking process he always responded immediately, what made me feel very comfortable from the first minute on.
There's really nothing you can make wrong when you stay at casa lo bueno. The only reason not to recommend this appartment is the fear, that you could book it first when i'm planning my next trip to Istanbul.
excellent place to stay few days in Istanbul , near everything
Host really nice and helpfull and great appartment with all commodities
I really recommend
We had a lovely stay. The apartment is clean and new in a vibrant neighbourhood. Beautiful sun in the morning coming through the window and close-by mosque's muezzin evocative song. Helpful service.
The apartment #3 met and exceeded our expectations. The interior was in top condition and nicely designed. The kitchen is small and if you plan to prepare meals, staying in the apartment with 5 people, it gets crowded. The location of the apartment is perfect as close to the Galata tower and everything is easily reachable. The apartment is located in a quiet side street, but yet in the middle of everything.
The owners are very friendly, easily reachable in emergency or questions. Happy to provide good advice and tips for around the area. We were also provided with a little tour so we could orientate ourselves in the area. We will definitely stay here again when coming back to Istanbul. We loved our stay and want to thank Izel for his hospitality and helpfulness.
We would highly recommend this apartment. We stayed with our family. Very comfortable. It has a great location. Easy to get to different highlights via public transportation. The area is hilly, but you can take the tram up and walk down to the apartment. Close to restaurants. Our host showed us around the neighborhood, which was very helpful! He even gave us transportation cards and a cell phone to contact him, if need be. We will recommend this apartment to anyone visiting Istanbul!
