The location was great. It was an extremely cozy apartment. Halime the owner is great, extremely helpful! Everything was really clean.
Given the structure on the home, the shower had a bit of a tough time draining the water.
Price was higher than on the website!
the location and the host halema who was very co-operative
troubles in finding address as property was without name , toilet malfunctions and carrying luggage to second floor without lift
Halime was so helpful and sweet. The kitchen was great as we always cook our meals.
In my case....nothing at all
The location was great for everything we wanted to see in our short visit to Istanbul. Everyone in the area was extremely nice and helpful.
For a good nights sleep it is best to turn on the AC and close the windows.
It is within walking distance to all the main attractions, very clean, safe, and comfortable. We rented the sea view apartment which was on the third floor and close to the terrace. It had plenty of room, allowed us to cook meals, wash clothes, etc. We felt comfortable with the windows open and loved sitting on the terrace in the evenings. Staff was wonderful. I rented three nights and was going to change over to a hotel for something different but after checking in we decided to stay at the apartments the whole trip. If I come to Istanbul again I would stay here.
Not much to complain about at all. The shower doesn't drain fast enough so there is some water filling up as you shower but this didn't really affect the quality of our stay, minor issue.
- Spacious - Daily cleaning and change of towels - Change of sheets when needed (handy with young kids) - Very good wi-fi - Friendly staff and nice gift on departure day - Close enough to main tourist attractions - 10 mins walk from Haghia Sofia - Helpful organising transfer from and to airport - Complimentary bottle of water in the fridge upon arrival
- Cockroach in the bathroom - Dark feet despite the daily cleaning - Camping type stove that gives you electrical shock when cooking - Light in the staircase turns off automatically every 30 secs which makes it dangerous, especially for young kids - Could do with small amendments like a towel rack in the bathroom
Great location. Staff took care of all of our needs. Because of a day of rain, staff had to handle a last minute transport change. Which was GREAT service.
Need to insure stairway lighting stays on for small children. Works fine for adults but not kids. Very noisy, need to sound proof rooms. Bed needs to be replaced. IF these items are fixed, TheOdora would be the best place out of 14 locations I have stayed at in Istanbul.
Great location Very very friendly and helpful staff
Everything was fine, perhaps some small details could have been fixed. Rooms are not too big, but we hardly spent time in them
My wife and I, travelling on honeymoon, stayed in one of Halimei's apartments for 5 nights. It was the perfect stay for us, and the apartment amenities included provide for the great stay. Not to mention Halimei's excellent service. This kind of stay is the stay of the future... forget about a templated hotel. Enjoy hospitality on the unbeaten path.
The owner halime was very helpful during our stay. She even loan us a cell phone for us to call her incase of anything. Besides that, we dont even need to buy the istanbul travel card cause she already provide us with one. The apartment was in superb clean condition n is very cozy.
Great location, very helpful staff
Location is nice only walking distance to Ayasofya and other hysterical places plus Grand Bazar
Disappointed from the rating in Booking. I would rate it 7.5 however, Sultanahmat area is an old city and good for 3 days to see all places.
Halime is the kindest, most generous person we met during our trip to Istanbul. We felt at home and the location was perfect to see the sights. She came with us to fetch the rental car - with her knowledge of the backstreets, the trip to find the rental car was do-able within a short period of time. We had the chance to have coffee with Halime and learned about her most remarkable life. If we are lucky enough to return to Istanbul, we will for sure stay with Halime. Thank you Halime - you are the very best!
Halima is the name I can trust,she did her job well in the name of hospitality and friendliness.Feels like home,indeed
that ziya baba slow food restaurant isn't part of theOdora company :))
Location, hospitality, lots of equipment inside - including washing machine
Highly recommendable apartments - owner Halime and sunny terrace on the roof are highllights of this option. The location is wonderful and shop with beers/wines in the same building, with very friendly seller, is very strategic!!!
The property is close to all the major tourist spots so it is super convenient if you are only staying a short time. The host Halime is fantastic - very warm and welcoming. She had everything ready for us and took care of us. She especially made certain that the needs of our infant son were taken care of by including a highchair and bath in the room.
The drainage in the shower in our apartment was a little problematic - the shower runs faster than the drain works so you end up with a little flood. Generally the bathroom needs a bit of a repair - the fan wasn't working that effectively either. However, this did not detract from our stay at all.
For me travel is more about the people I meet than the places I stay at. And you can see from all the other reviews that Halime is the USP of TheOdora Apartment. She is a delightfully warm and welcoming person and right from the beginning she made us feel right at home. No request was too difficult for her - and she made several phone calls to get us visitor information. The apartment itself was very well located with a nice little breakfast cafe and grocery store right at our doorstep. We would definitely recommend it to anyone wanting to stay in the heart of the tourist district of Sultanahmet
It was slightly complicated to manage three keys for the apartment and access to the terrace which was in the main building.......maybe a combination lock or key card system would be better.And the terrace was less impressive than it looks in the photos......some flowers in pots would make it more welcoming.
the staff was very friendly
We enjoyed our stay at The Odora Apt. The owner (Halime) is a lovely and friendly person. She provided us with a cell phone, so we could call her anytime (very helpful). The location is great at walking distance of all Sultanahmet historical sites. The apartment was fully equipped with a kitchen and washing machine for family needs. We highly recommend this apt to anyone travelling to Istanbul.
The place is difficult to find (be carefull with taxi drivers). Call Halime as soon as you arrive at Istanbul Intl. Airport.
HALIMA as she showed high level of excellent customer service.
Location might be good for westerns. We didn't like being in a historical neighborhood. Very narrow streets. And if you need the metro station you will have to clim
The location of the apartment was perfect. We loved the leisurely walks across Sultanahmet Park, and popping into the small shops around the area. The size of the apartment was just nice for us two, and it was nice and quiet at night. Halime was very nice and helpful, and we spent a few evenings chatting with her and finding out more about the city. She even provided a mobile phone, telling us to call her at any time of the day, and a tram/metro card. Will definitely recommend this apartment to people visiting the city.
Nice apartment spacious and clean. Halima is amazing and helpful. We had a great time.
Small tiny stairs since it is a historic building, abit diffecult for seniors.
