Lovely clean flat, spacious and comfortable. There were four adults in our party, and although there are six bed-spaces (two twin-bedded rooms and a double), I think the sitting area and kitchen would feel quite cramped with more than four. The kitchen has perfectly acceptable basic equipment; however, if, like us, you wanted to cook regularly, you might find it a bit sparse.
Excellent sound insulation, which was welcome: it's not on a particularly main street, but there were roadworks outside throughout our stay. The flat is a good half-hour's walk from Sultanahmet Square, and other central attractions, but this isn't really a problem as taxis were readily available (and, we thought, very cheap) just at the bottom of the street - and in fact, it's great fun walking in Istanbul, anyway! There are food shops / small supermarket within a couple of blocks of the flat, and a bank opposite, so overall, the location was fine.
The blurb refers to a terrace/balcony, but the flat we were in did not have one. We had some problems getting into the flat, as the owner had deputised someone else to let us in, who turned up only once we had rung the owner's wife (in France!). Although there was no reference to the charge in the booking information, the owner wanted us to leave in the flat a further €30 payment for cleaning - this should have been included in the rental, not presented as an unwelcome additional charge.
Overall, a good flat, and I'd recommend it.
