un séjour mémorable dans cette merveilleuse ville ;

l'organisation de l'équipe et d'Ozhan en particulier nous a bien facilité l'arrivée dans cette ville où l'on s'est tout de suite senties étonnament très à l'aise ;
l'appartement est agréable, bien central avec des moyens de transports à proximité bien commodes pour des retours après de longues marches qui nous ménent dans tous les quartiers . l'ambiance du quartier
est vivante, gaie animée et pourtant l'appartement est au calme et permet un repos bien mérité.le coucher du soleil sur Isanbul du haut de la tour est inoubliable

merci à vous

I'd like to thank Metehan and his team for the wonderful job they're doing. Due to them, this time I was feeling like a real citizen of this wonderful city. The "Lights of Istanbul" apartment where I stayed in was perfect, views from the window - very nice, location - excellent. If you're an open-minded traveller, you'll definitely understand why it's much better to stay in an apartment than in a hotel.

Hi Metehan:
Just writing to thank you...
Staying in Galata was such a good idea, the neighbourhood is highly recommendable...Well located, safe, quite and with a lot of character. We loved it...
It was also v nice to meet you...
I took hundreds of pictures, I ll be publishing them in my photoblog in the next days. If someone is going to Istanbul I would certainly recommend Istanbulsweethome...

Dear Ozkan,

that's it, we returned home at Nantes (at the other end of europe ;-).

We really spent a pleasant stay in Istanbul. And like, we are passionate about the history and arts, we have therefore been filled. Your apartment was very pleasant and the area is charmant, we will not hesitate to return and recommend it to our friends or our family.

Our hearts are little bit stambouliotes now!

Sincerely yours

Pierre et Maria

First time in Istanbul and staying in the nice apartment was just what we wanted! And we are already thinking about coming back!
A good location as it is only 50mts for the Galata Tower, that even looks grand at night when you are sitting on your balcony. Between Taksim and the Galata bridge, where there is so much to see and to do. And don't forget all the lovely restaurants. Or eating in a simple (but very tasty) way, bread with fresh baked fish at the harbor. The smell will make your want to try it.
Also having a full bathroom and kitchenette makes it all the better.
A place we like to recommend!

Que des louanges pour ce petit appartement merveilleusement situé. A l'écart du tourisme excessif mais au cour de la vie de la ville. Quel plaisir de s'accouder à la fenêtre pour écouter l'appel à la prière du soir qui résonne de toutes parts. Une hospitalité et une générosité des stambouliotes, ce séjour fut un ravissement et il nous tarde seulement d'y retourner.
Merci aussi à Metehan pour l'aide en toutes circonstances!
A bientôt

Myself and my partner stayed in Lights of Istanbul in February 2008. It is a lovely modern apartment with ample space and is in very good condition. We found Metehan very helpful for anything we needed. The shower is great so powerful. It is in a super location and is quiet also. The only issue would possibly be the stairs to the floor where apartment is located, this could be an issue for more elderly people as there is quite a few stairs up. It is super for dining in as lovely modern utensils etc are supplied, I couldnt fault anything. I plan to return to Istanbul in March and will stay in one of Istanbul Sweet Homes properties once again.

My husband spent over two weeks in the Lights of Istanbul apartment. This apartment is very cozy and quite easily became our "sweet home" during our stay. We tremendously enjoyed being so close to the Istiklal Street. We were also able to choose from a variety of fresh produce vendors and even had a butcher just around the corner.
Having a washer at our disposal was a life-saver! Metehan was very easy to work with and we definitely look forward to working with him in the future.

Dear Metehan,

Just to say that we really enjoyed our stay in your apartment, Lights of Istanbul. The aircon was a lifesaver in that hot weather, and we were very comfortable all round. We especially loved the neighborhood, which was warm and charming. Thanks too for getting the baby bath tub, and for booking the efficient taxi service to and from the airport.

the flat was very clean and tidy and the location was perfect for seeing all the sights.It was also a very quite location and there was no noise to disturb us. Older clients would need to know that there are alot of stairs to get to the apartment.i would definately recommend this to my friends and family for the perfect stay. thank you for everything

This flat is super cozy and close to everything, very strategic indeed. It's safe and clean, which is a consideration when looking for a place to stay. It's well-maintained, with facility /amenities to make your stay comfortable. It has a nice view of the Golden Horn, and the historic Galata Tower is just a few steps away, which could actually be seen from the balcony.

Lights of Istanbul is true to its description.

Staying in this flat feels like you are home...sweet home. I will have this flat again on my next visit to Istanbul.

It's highly recommended!

Salamat po!

I can warmly recommand "Istanbul Sweet Homes" as your host in Istanbul. They offer safe and very professional service from the paperwork like the contract and the confirmation form, to the service at the spot. The small flat "lights of Istanbul" situated in the most central area of Istanbul is comfortable and totally modernished. The small shops in the neighbourghhood from the baker to the RAKI salesman. It is all in a few minutes walk from this flate. And you can reach the ferry fra Karaköy to Asia site within 5 minutes.

Enjoy your stay
I will book this flat again next time I am visiting Istanbul
