After touring for over a month by public bus we were relieved to finish part of our trip at the Topkapi Apartments in Istanbul. We had done some considerable research in Australia prior to leaving and all reviews of accommodation we chose based on trip adviser were accurate.
Hamza replied very quickly to emails we sent prior to leaving and the same when we were travelling within Turkey. Communication, as evident in the brochure and contact list adjacent to the free telephone, is a high priority and much appreciated.
All the positive comments and praise for these apartments about the perfect location and comfortable amenities are warranted. It was heavenly returning exhausted after a day's walking or touring to relax in Unit 4 on the top floor.
Having stayed in apartments during the past five years in the U.K., Netherlands, France, Germany, Czech Republic, Italy, Austria, Belgium and Denmark, we loved this place and can't speak highly enough of the warmth and kindness shown by Yusuf and Hamza. We will be returning to Turkey with our grandchildren from Bahrain in a few years and will certainly rebook.
A comment about Noah's Ark Carpet shop run by Hamza, Yusuf and Apo. We purchased three carpets along the way and were pleased with the advice, honesty and assistance we received. The three Sumaks and antique Teke Ensi tent door hanging purchased at Noah's Ark take pride of place in our collection and we are grateful for their guidance. We often called in and had tea with them and spent time admiring the extensive collection, especially of old rugs. If you are interested I can highly recommend magnificent carpets at realistic prices.
