“Excellent apartment, caring host Izel, beautiful city, I loved it all!”
Reviewed 8 June 2013 for a stay in May 2013

My friends and I stayed at this beautiful apartment for 5 days. Everything was just perfect, from the location (just next to Galata Tower), apartment which is very classy furnished and cozy, to our host Izel who was so caring and thoughtful, always reachable (even after midnight when our taxi driver could not find the apartment). Izel was acting as an old friend and spent one day with us showing us hidden treasuries of Istanbul. Took us to a very nice Turkish restaurant with fresh fish (so tasty). Thank you Izel. So at the end there is no less to say but I could deeply recommend Casa loBueno and Izel to all who are planning their trip to Istanbul. You would not regret it, but enjoy it.

“Casa Lo Bueno: the place to rent in Istanbul”
Reviewed 3 June 2013 for a stay in May 2013

"Lo Bueno" of this flat is first of all its top rating location with perfect neighborhood at walking distance from main historical spots.
"Lo Bueno" is also the flat itself: nice, comfortable, well equipped and clean.
The living room is a little bit small and poorly lit.
Last but not least "Lo Buenisimo" is the host, Izel, very friendly and easy going person. Izel is very flexible and responsive. On one day he has been kind enough to take us for lunch to his favourite meat bowl place and in the afternoon to share with us some magic sightseing in the heart of the old Istanbul.
The place to rent in Istanbul!

“Warm support from Izel, nice and new appartment with still slight improvement to do”
Reviewed 3 June 2013 for a stay in May 2013

Very friendly welcome and support from Izel
Appartement is brand new and stylish, as on picture
Location is not in the oldest town peninsula but close to Galata tower and bridge and is in the younger more modern and "living" part of the city.
Buidlding entrace and stairs need re-furbishing and appartment windows are too heavy to open (need to add couterweights)

“Fantastic base for Istanbul”
Reviewed 29 May 2013 for a stay in May 2013

What a perfect spot for seeing and enjoying Istanbul! We got so lucky as we'd done minimal research before, but the apartment location could not have been better. Based in trendy, happening Galata, it was minutes from the tower, the metro, the tram, and so, so many good restaurants and bars. We genuinely had multiple breakfasts and lunches in order to try out all of the cool spots! And be sure to walk on 'Freedom' street on Saturday night to really see all of Istanbul out and about, promenading. And again minutes from the apartment!

The hosts were great in terms of flexibility and arranging check in and check out. And they thought of some really nice touches such as a Turkish mobile to use, guides for the area, coffee for us, etc. The apartment was very clean and so spacious - we managed to have a bedroom each and it was nowhere near feeling cramped.

I'd stay here again in a heartbeat and thoroughly recommend it!
