“Modern appartement, location, location, location !”

people found this review helpful

Exactly as announced, photos are real ! Well decorated, comfortable rooms with large windows, a breeze coming in with no need for A/C. Bathrooms are clean, renovated and roomy, shower is strong and hot water aplenty.
Kitchen is well planned and equipped, we even hosted a small dinner family for our son who's studying in Istanbul .
Extremely well located, close to the Galata tower and 2 small food markets. 2 blocks away from living Istiklal Street and its restaurants and shops; 2 blocks away from the Tünel transportation to Karaköy's tram to the Golden Horn or Dohlmabahçe (all 3-5 min rides). We were away from the noisy neighborhoods and close to all tourist attractions and shopping.
Wi-fi had a strong broadband and worked very well. We hardly watched TV, no opinion.
Calm street, with only minor city noise, once you close the windows, you can really sleep well.
Service was efficient and discreet, Fuat was always around without imposing himself, very polite and helpful.

“Great Stay Next to the Galata Tower”
Reviewed 30 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

person found this review helpful

We were thoroughly impressed from the start - the owner of the property met with us at 9pm following a delay at the airport, and made us feel at home by showing us around the apartment, giving us advice on where to eat and how to travel around the city.

The apartment was clean and stylish, with all the necessary amenities for a break in Istanbul. It is a stone's throw away from the Galata tower and one of the main streets in Istanbul, with lots of nice restaurants within walking distance. There is also a tram stop nearby which takes you to all the main attractions in the city.

All in all a great place to stay while in Istanbul.

“Beautiful apartment in best location”
Reviewed 26 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We had a great stay in Hendek Apartment. The apartment is situated in the perfect spot of Istanbul with walking distance to everything. The area is really nice with lots of little shops and cafes. We were very warmly welcomed when we arrived and everything worked out perfectly! The apartment itself is very nice and comfortable. We will definetely return soon.

“Lovely apartment, fantastic service”
Reviewed 25 May 2015 for a stay in April 2015

We travel to Istanbul frequently and I have stayed at Hendek apartment with my toddler son and friends and family several times since late 2014. The owners and manager (Fuat) are lovely hosts who pay attention to every detail and made us feel very much at home in this charming apartment.

The apartment has great amenities like a washer, washing machine, cooking utensils and a coffee maker. It's also very quiet; located across from a nearly empty parking garage, it's just one block from Galata Tower.

There's no lift but it hasn't been a problem for us with our son as the flights are pretty short. There's ample space for a stroller downstairs and a cot/crib and high chair are available upon request.

One of the bedrooms is large with two twin beds and has a stunning bay window; the other has a queen-sized bed and is much smaller but we could squeeze a crib in there by pushing the bed against the wall. The rooms and the entire apartment have great light and there's exposed brick, great antiques and plants to make the place feel homey.

There are 1.5 bathrooms and the bigger is spacious with a shower. There are even warmers for your towels!

The Tunel, historic tram up to Taksim and the subway (Sishane stop) are conveniently located just 1-2 blocks away which was key for us given that Galata is hilly. The owners leave a metro card with their guests which is so helpful -- it's easy to top up.

I've stayed in other apartments in Galata (including corporate apartments that weren't nearly as nice) but always try to book Hendek or one of the owners' other places because they're well cared for and the service is amazing. The price can't be beat if you're considering Galata/Beyoglu/Taskim and Sultanahmet (I've shopped around).

Liked best: Location and comfort
Liked least: Not having a lift.

“Perfect Apartment in Galata Towers neighborhood”
Reviewed 25 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

A great and very reasonably priced alternative to a hotel. MY three friends and I -- all very fussy, demanding people, rented two apartments in the Hendek Apartments. The light and airy apartment has two bedrooms, 1 full bathroom and a second toilet and sink in another room, a lovely living room with comfortable couches and a table, an extremely well-equipped kitchen with microwave, toaster, coffee maker, big refrigerator, a small table and a large hallway/foyer. Tarkan, the offsite manager, was extremely responsive to all my email inquires - of which there were many. We used his car service to take us to the apartments from the airport. The on-site manager was there to greet us with keys and information, including an electronic transportation card for public transportation. This is very helpful to have for the first time user. The Tunel (the funicular that goes up and down the hill) is a 5 minute walk from the apartment. Take it and you're right at the Galata Bridge, the gateway to the Old City, the Spice Market and all the top five sites. The neighborhood is a perfect place to stay and get a feel for everyday Istanbul life.
