We stayed on the first floor room 3. The room is a good size with a separate bathroom and bedroom. The room has dated from the pictures shown on the website, however, they were clean and the lady on reception was very helpful. The reception area smells of cigarette smoke and unfortunately this smell carries up the winding staircase and...

The rooms have nothing to do with the photos : much smaller, not clean, and not comfortable. strong smell of cigarette smoke in the rooms and the hotel. We didn't sleep well because of the light in the room (no black-out curtain) Rude staff. The location was the only think OK

So this apartment does not have an elevator. Not really cool when you have a baby! And our apartment was 3 floors up! I was a bit disappointed with the apartment as it didn't look as good as the pictures on the website. We arrived on a Thursday about 2 and booked 3 nights. By Saturday afternoon, our apartment was...

Other than not having our room ready when we arrived, no water, no internet, no English, and no customer service, the place was fine... if you like over-paying for small places to stay. Definitely don't take their transfer from the airport, if you don't want to take public transport for 10 TL per person, there are cab's which will charge...

We were very disappointed with the entire experience. First of the all, the apartment we’ve rented was advertised as a penthouse. But when we arrived it looked more like a converted attic with no proper room separation. The furniture looked completely different to the pictures they advertised. And the bathroom had a really bad smell. They have offered an airport...

It was a nice experience staying at Chef aparts, Ozkan and Sarkan are too lovely people, never thought I would be treated like sultan but I did, great service, nice location, and lovely people, that's all what tourists want when they're not at home, they just need a place called home. Good job and keep up the good work.

Staying in Beyoglu

Neighbourhood Profile
Istanbul’s most famous street, pedestrianized Istiklal Caddesi (Independence Avenue), throbs day and night and offers a fantastic array of architectural sights, shops, treats, and throngs upon teeming throngs of people. At the avenue’s northeastern end is expansive Taksim Square, thought by many to be the very heart of the city, with many of Turkey’s most renowned restaurants and some of Europe’s most happening nightlife in close proximity. In striking contrast, Beyoglu’s less trafficked areas – such as the affluent Cihangir and the antiques district of Cukurcuma – exude Old World charm and provide contemplative calm and splendid diversion via an assortment of cozy cafes, attractive boutiques, and quiet lanes.

“Beyoglu is not in the old city part, but I believe it is a more quiet place to sleep then the old center. By (cheap)tram it only takes 3 stops before you are in the old city.”
