|Thank you for a true Istanbul experience in this well equipped and atmospheric apartment. Perfect to
many sights. We wish we were staying longer.
Geoffrey & Olivia (Australia)
What an excellent addition to Istanbul's accommodation scene your apartments represent. We enjoyed
our week there, and the apartment (Aysel Four) is in a great location and well appointed.
This is my second visit to Istanbul. The apartment (Glorya Deluxe View) is very well-equipped and
clean, with superb view of this magnificent city. The vicinity is very safe. You can comfortably walk
around the area even after midnight, which I did. The staff was very helpful to address my enquiries.
Maurice (Hong Kong)
Thanks for being so flexible about our reservations. We absolutely loved the apartment ... I just wanted
to say, top marks for bedding! I've been travelling around Turkey for almost 5 years and those were by
far the best nights' sleep I've had away from home here. The sheets, duvet and pillows were fantastic!
The rest of the flat was in very good order and the service was excellent- very friendly staff. I will
definitely recommend you to friends and family who need a place to stay in Istanbul.
Diane, Lynn & Steve (U.S.)
Fantastic apartment in a superb location. Istanbul has been a truly memorable experience for us. The
rooftop restaurants have been a real hit -- the views at night a real pleasure. Have thoroughly enjoyed
Lesley & Tim (London)
Thanks for the great apartment. A great neighborhood and nice to be away from the really touristy areas.
Close to great restaurants and lovely lanes to wonder around in. Beautiful apartment as well as
comfortable. It was sometimes hard to go outside!
Josh & Amy Laurenson (New Zealand)
Very good apartment. Much more comfortable than our usual hotels.
Anne & Richard (U.K)
Thank you for a wonderful stay! Our 7 years old daughter thought it the finest place on earth- we will
remember our visit to Istanbul forever.
Gordon Family (New York-USA)
We loved the apartment. It is much better than staying at a hotel. We would definitely recommend this to
our friends. It was wonderful to have the view of the city out our window. The driver and guest
representative were very helpful with our questions. Thank you – what a great view of the city.
Kevin & Marietta (U.S.)
Great apartment in the best neighborhood in the city! We had a look around the tourist Disneyland in the
Hagia Sophia/Sultanahmet area and it was scary! Good job we didn't stay there.
Tom & Rebekah (U.K)
We can't tell you how much we enjoyed our stay in Istanbul in large part because of this wonderful
apartment. The location was perfect with easy access to all the sights and the tram. Your system of
airport pickup, guest relations and cleaning all ran like a well tuned machine!
Robert & Linda (U.S)
We found the apartment perfect for our (too) short stay in this wonderful city! Each day we look forward
to coming home and felt as though we were enjoying the experience more than if we stayed in a sterile
hotel room! We loved the kindness & generosity of the people in the Galata area and after only two days
we felt like locals. We will definitely recommend Bereket One to our friends and would love to come
again. This was a particularly good option for us as we have two small children -- both of whom felt at
Paul & Danielle, Will & Lulu (Aussies living in Dubai)
Thank you for the incredible use of the apartment. I made a last-minute decision to come to Istanbul to
meet up with my son and was a bit apprehensive as a single woman. Ann assured me that this location
would be safe and convenient and right she was. We loved the location, became friends with a few
shopkeepers and found the apartment to be clean, comfortable and very homey. We will definitely
recommend to friends and hope to someday return.
Karen (Seattle USA)
Our home away from home for the past few days and we love it! It was so nice to enter this warm &
inviting apartment after such a long journey. All you hard work in restoring this place has definitely paid
off. We would recommend it to anyone we know who will be traveling to Istanbul! Looking forward to our

The apartment was far more relaxing than spending the same amount on a hotel room. It was truly a
Ken & Darlene (Bahamas)
A lovely apartment; it has everything we need for our holiday. We are very impressed with your whole
service; excellent value.
Judy & David (U.K.)
A very nice place, luxurious and clean. Ideal for a comfortable stay in Istanbul.
Thank you for a perfect time in Istanbul. We loved the apartment. Everything went perfectly and we
really didn't want to leave when the time came.
Andrew & Sabina (U.K.)
Let me tell you how much we enjoyed our stay and how wonderful we found the whole experience of
Istanbul. Istanbul Holiday Apartments couldn't be better organized, I don't think -- from beginning,
where guests are met at the airport, to end, where you give precise instructions how to arrange our trip
back to the airport, and everything in between. Having you a phone call away where you return calls
promptly to deal with whatever problems we might have is very reassuring. I only wish we had occasion
to use your good services again, but Istanbul is a dream holiday which can hardly be repeated anytime
soon. If we know of anyone travelling to Istanbul, it will be our joy to recommend you to them.
Floy, Jane (Canada) & Paul (U.S.)
Thank you and your staff for a wonderful and most comfortable week I have spent in Istanbul for a long
time. The apartment is very comfortable, all amenities work well, apartment instructions and information
booklet is easy to follow. The location is unbeatable. The most interesting historic, cultural sites and my
favorite Jazz club, Babylon , are within short walking distance or quite convenient metro and taxi rides.
Thank you for running such nice apartments and your professionalism. I hope to return next year with
my wife and perhaps our son also. I sincerely hope to stay in one of your apartments.
Thank you for making our stay in Istanbul so memorable. The apartment is one of the most tasteful and
beautiful places I have stayed at. It was really a unique experience – we loved the city, the area where
the apartments were, the beautiful Art Nouveau building, and a cosy and most comfortable apartment.
Anatoly (USA) & Dmytro (Ukraine)
Wonderful! We enjoyed every minute of our visit here. The apartment meets all needs: location, space,
amenities and a special home-like feel. Beautiful! We cannot wait to return.
Mary, Clint & family (U.S.)
It makes such a difference to a working visit to Istanbul to have such a homey and comfortable place to
stay -- I also really liked the location in Cihangir with everything imaginable practically at the front door!
This is much better than any hotel! The view is breathtaking, the apartment lacks nothing & the
hospitality is wonderful.
Simon & Ulricke (Switzerland)
From all the choices available on the Internet we were hesitant to pick an apartment in a foreign country.
What a pleasant surprise -- we've stayed in hotels which claimed a great view but nothing compares. It
was a great feeling to come back after long days of walking to a cozy apartment. Yes, what you see is
what you get: great location, great view and comfort.
Acvioglu family (U.S.)
All in all, a great little find. Highly recommend.
What a wonderful flat! We had such a wonderful time here in Istanbul and loved the attention to detail
you provide. We will definitely stay here on our next visit to Istanbul. It made us feel so at home and has
made a huge difference in our stay. Thanks for thinking of everything (especially the very helpful and
detailed Guest Information Book) We look forward to our return.
Joseph & Jenny (US)
An extraordinary experience! Thank you very much for a delicately decorated flat and a view we have
enjoyed every second … Close to perfection—an excellent starting point for exploring the east and west
of the Golden Horn … we hope to come back.
The Knudsens, Norway
After visiting Istanbul many time and staying in wonderful hotels, Istanbul Holiday Apartments is the
best kept secret to really enjoy the city. Hope to return often -- to use this as a means of introducing
others to the mysteries of this fascinating city.
Denny (US-Foreign Service)
What a place! I can’t remember us having left as ‘at home away from home” as we were here. It is a
fantastic city and Istanbul Holiday Apartments fits right into the picture. It’s got style, personality and
all the creature comforts you could ever want. The location is picturesque and very convenient. The
neighborhood is ultra friendly, lively yet exceedingly livable. Will we be back? You bet! Will we
recommend this place? Absolutely!
Tas family (Holland)
What a wonderful find! I will unreservedly recommend Istanbul Holiday Apartments to everyone I know.
Many thanks for a professional service and excellent accommodations.
Staying at the Istanbul Holiday Apartments was like staying at a friend's home who happened to be out
of town and had lent us his condo. The apartment was so well located, just half a block from
the famous Genovese Galata tower. The street was always so quiet yet all so close to a wonderful
boulevard full of coffee houses and restaurants. The flowers and the bottle of wine awaiting us at the
apartment was such a nice touch and the lady that waited for us at the airport made it so easy to arrive to
our temporary home. We loved having a full kitchen, not that we ever cooked, but we could have a cup
of coffee and pastry before exploring the city and keep those tasty Turkish fruits for late in the night
snacks. I am glad to know many more of your customers will be enjoying such a jewel of a place.
Thanks for the experience!!
Saul (U.K.), Otto (Guatemala) and Fernando (Venezuela).
Having been coming to Istanbul since 1967, this is the first time I've used an apartment rather than an
hotel. Nice change. Great apartment...great location ... great services!
Our apartment was very pleasant, spacious and clean ... I can recommend it to everyone who goes to the
city for business. Rent an apartment by Ann Uysal! Istanbul Holiday Apartments have great service. My
brother and I love that -- when we return we will probably rent the same Penthouse.
Ruud & Richard (The Netherlands)
The place to stay in Istanbul. I’ve stayed in three apartments and they are all unique and comfortable.
Shawn Sohi (U.S.)
Excellent stay for a business traveler as well! The apartments have all the facilities of a good hotel and
many pluses more ... I will return and recommend it to others.
I could not have wished for a better apartment to see this wonderful city! Thanks for your hospitality and
This is my second visit to Istanbul Holiday Apartments and it continues to exceed my expectations.
There is so much to see and do in Istanbul that it is becoming a home away from home.
Denny (U.S. foreign service)
A very convenient home away from home. For a very reasonable price you’ll find no better place to stay!
Iwama family (Japan-U.K.)
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and highly recommend others to stay at Istanbul Holiday Apartments.
They are well decorated, the location is ideal and quiet and the satellite has a good selection of
channels. Very good value for money.
Cooke family (Canada)
All the comforts of home at Istanbul Holiday Apartments, and then some, with the most spectacular view
of the town available. The view itself makes the trip worthwhile. Very comfortable and beautiful! Great
location --made for many happy memories!
Erik, Chris & Alex (U.S.)
It took me almost three weeks to find an apartment in Istanbul. I first I thought it’s a bit expensive but to
be honest it’s worth it. We had the best time ever. I suggest if you’re looking for a place to stay choose
Istanbul Holiday Apartments and don’t worry about anything because Ann has got everything ready for
Zandi Family (Canada-Sweden-Iran)
Loved having an apartment. We had planned to cook meals in but the restaurants we too good so we
never did. Still it was good to have our own place to come home to.
Judy & Craig (Canada)
We have many happy memories from our week in Istanbul … Istanbul Holiday Apartments was the ideal
location for us. Close to the sights. Close to the shops. Living in a historic neighborhood at the foot of
Galata Tower—yet with every modern convenience. Traveling from afar, it was so reassuring to find
people waiting for us at the airport and at the apartment. Our thanks to you for your hospitality and your
advice on this most intriguing of cities –Istanbul--from three intrepid tourists from Australia.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The apartment is situated in a good location, close to all sightseeing
places. It was also very handy to be near local food shops… the apartment caters for all and has
everything a person needs to have a good stay, long or short. Walking from the apartment is not a
problem and is actually very enjoyable. I would recommend anyone to come to Istanbul at least once in
their life—it is a very beautiful and historical city.

Carrie & Ben (US)
Travel requires imagination and what better place than Istanbul to exercise it. Staying in a hotel would
only deaden it but your amazing apartment is a perfect place to live Istanbul. You have wonderful taste
and such a respectful renovation!
There is no such fabulous country in the world as Turkey. There is no such fantastic city in this country
as Istanbul. There is no such incredible place in this city to stay as Istanbul Holiday Apartments.
Ludmilla & Niko (Russia)
Istanbul is one of the most glorious and vibrant cities I've ever had the pleasure of leaving footprints in.
Thanks to Istanbul Holiday Apartments for a fantastic place to hang my hat as I explored Turkey. I can't
wait to come back.
