“Beautiful historic apartment in lively Istanbul neighborhood”
Reviewed 28 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

My fiancé and I stayed at Heirloom Istanbul for several nights in the Marigold suite and immensely enjoyed our time there. The proprietors, Dilek and Ender, were incredibly helpful and accommodating. Ender provided a number of restaurant recommendations and made reservations/travel arrangements for us! Breakfast at the cafe downstairs was also delicious! We would certainly stay here again next time we are in Istanbul!

“Absolutely wonderful!”
Reviewed 1 February 2014 for a stay in September 2013

My sister and I stayed at Heirloom Istanbul for our last night in Turkey, and were absolutely enchanted by the place. We would recommend this place to anyone in Istanbul without recommendation, and hope to have a longer stay there the next time we travel to Istanbul.

Dilek is a wonderful host. Even though our stay was brief, we did have time to relax over tea and chat with her about the history of the property, and how she and her brother restored the place. She made us feel very welcome. We really like what she is doing with the place. Dilek has traveled around Turkey, and observed that in a lot of places, the people are giving up traditional crafts and starting more profitable tourism-related businesses. In order to help preserve the unique cultural identities of these different regions of Turkey, the hotel tries to make these crafts profitable for the craftsmen and craftswomen by selling the crafts and sending over proceeds from the sales. I thought that was wonderful!

Our suite was excellent. It was spacious and comfortable. It included a kitchen. While all of the appliances were modern, Dilek and her brother had actually renovated the place with the original materials (floors, wallpaper, etc.), so it retains its original charm. My sister and I loved this place, and we would absolutely stay again!

“Just Wonderful!”
Reviewed 18 July 2013 for a stay in June 2013

We stayed six nights in the green one bedroom just one floor up. Room was more beautiful than pictures-- super clean with new arts and crafts style furnishings. Renovations to the antique house are beautifully and tastefully done. Bed was large and mattress was supreme. After a hot day of touring, we loved coming home to our lovely cool apartment and Dilek's friendly, smiling face. We had a wonderful stay in Istanbul and much of it was due to staying at Heirloom Istanbul.

“Warmth and character; a quiet spot in a happening neighbourhood.”
Reviewed 10 May 2013 for a stay in May 2013

This a great place to stay a few days longer than your standard sightseeing stop. Here you will get the personal touch, friendly hosts and staff, and a generally relaxed and welcoming atmosphere.
This suite includes a spacious sitting room and a handy galley kitchen connecting it to the bedroom. The bathroom is split into shower w/ wash hand basin and toilet also w/ wash hand basin, which does help speed things up in the morning
The building has been restored and upgraded to suit its current use by committed owners including an engineer, i.e. the job appears to have been done properly unlike so many others where the upgrade job is barely skin deep. And it's been done in very good taste, I think William Morris would have been impressed.
The building is in a quiet alley whereas the neighbourhood is very handy if you are on holiday as it has many cafes, restaurants, shops... And within tram or even walking distance from the city's main sights.
We are very grateful for the warm and generous hospitality provided by Dilek and her family.
