“Great location, helpful host in Istanbul”
Reviewed 10 June 2013 for a stay in June 2013

Stayed with two friends over a long weekend. The apartment is in the hip Beyoğlu neighborhood of Istanbul with lots of cute design shops, music/instrument stores, a range of food options, cool bars, and the great Galata Tower (with amazing 360 view of Istanbul). Izel was our host, provided lots of great information and recommendations. I had already had great experiences renting apartments in other cities before this trip to Istanbul, and yet was still impressed with the small details Izel and Doret had thought which made our stay really easy so we could concentrate on enjoying the city. There is some construction going on nearby, so you might want to bring earplugs until that is finished, but overall a wonderful, spacious space with great light in a good location (the stairwell is unglamorous, but just wait, the apartment is wonderful!), with excellent hosts. Highly recommended!

“Perfect apartment and a friendly host;)”
Reviewed 8 June 2013 for a stay in June 2013

We (6 girlfriends) spent 5 days in Istanbul staying in this absolutely amazing apartment. Everything was just perfect; the apartment, location and especially our host. Location of the apartment, in the quite street next to Galata tower, is ideal for exploring the city during the day and a good starting point for evening program. Most sightseeing points are on the walking distance from apartment. The Apartment is spaces, cozy decorated and well equipped. We traveled a lot and definitely this was the best apartment we ever had so far. Our host Izel was on our disposal at any time, which was very precious. Even before we got to Istanbul we exchanged the mails and he helped us to organize the full program during our stay giving us useful information according to our preferences. He even bought us the Istanbul card (useful to have for the transportation), ensure the mobile phone with local card inside, organize the transportation to the airport and finally spend one day with us exploring the city and showing us some hidden jams which we could never find on our own. He took his cammera and made some great photos and sent afterwards to us. Izel is a real „friend“, kind, open minded, easy going, so he made us feel like home. We already miss him and his hospitality. Hope you will have an opportunity to stay in Casa LoBueno;).
We like it a lot !

“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!
