“Perfect place, perfect position, perfect hosts”

My partner and I spent four weeks in Istanbul from the last week in May, getting to know the city really well, and that is our preferred type of holiday. CasaLoBueno#1 was our base throughout this time and we can only say that it was perfect in every way.
We found the apartment by chance - and we definitely struck lucky. It is very centrally placed, close to the Galata Tower, and public transport is no more than a couple of minutes away, as are many coffee bars, restaurants and other facilities. In one direction we were quickly at Taksim Square and it's night life, in the other the old city was just over the nearby Galata Bridge.
And best of all, our hosts, Izel and Doret have their office almost on the doorstep and they could not have been more welcoming and helpful. Nothing seemed to be too much trouble, when we asked Izel where the nearest launderette was his response was "leave your laundry in the flat, I'll collect it and it will be back the next day"!
The flat itself is spacious, very clean and bright, and the building has the quaintest lift you will ever find.
10 out of 10!!
And if you haven't been to Istanbul, or just went for a quick weekend, this is a city to be explored thoroughly. Great, and cheap, public transport will get you everywhere....trams, buses, ferries, trains, funiculars....all one price per journey, less than R10....and also very clean and easy to use. We also walked our socks off exploring some of the lesser known areas and sights. As well as the well known Mosques etc don't miss the Pera Museum, the Ottoman Bank Museum, and the most comprehensive transport museum we've ever seen, the Rahmi M Koc Museum - cars, motor bikes, trams, trains, even a submarine, and all in immaculate condition.
Four weeks was not enough and we were genuinely sad to leave. For that we also have to thank Izel and Doret and their lovely apartment

“Right in the middle of everything”
Reviewed 12 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014

We had a wonderful stay in the appartment. The location is excellent, all bars and restaurants and shops are in walking distance. The appartment is spacious, very clean and comfortable. The beds are good. There were only some minor things; we missed a mirror in the bedroom, some bowls for breakfast and because one bedroom is next to the livingroom, the lights from the livingroom shines in at night (maybe a curtain?). The wifi was excellent!
Izel thank you for your email showing us all the right places to go to and thanks for showing us around the neighbourhood when we arrived late at night!

We just spent our Easter weekend in Casa lo Bueno, and it was a perfect apartment for the 5 of us. The location is great so you can easily get to all the sights in Istanbul, and there's loads of nice restaurants,cafes and shops in the area. Izel was the perfect host giving us tips for restaurants and places to visit, lending us travel cards and a mobile as well as helping us with airport transfer. The apartment itself was brilliant; beautifully renovated, very clean, well equiped and with an amaxing view to Galata tower. I would certainly recommend this apartment as you will not be disapointed.

“Elegant charm, perfect location, attentive hosts.”
Reviewed 7 April 2014 for a stay in March 2014

I enjoyed a five night stay in CasaLoBueno, which more than matched my expectations. The apartment is beautifully restored to its late 19th Century elegance with all the conveniences and necessities of the 21st, including high speed internet. The apartment enjoys a stunning view of the medieval Galata tower. It is extremely well situated, in a great neighborhood in easy access to the rest of the city. The host is very thoughtful and attentive, he orientated me to the area, and provided some of the small convenient essentials that are so important in a new city - mobile telephone, travel card. He was available for advice and assistance, as needed. I strongly recommend staying at CasaLoBueno. You will not regret it.

“Helpful host, great location and really comfortable apartment”
Reviewed 3 April 2014 for a stay in March 2014

My wife, teenage daughter and I stayed at this great place for four nights. We had a wonderful time and being so close to the metro station was really handy. The apartment was warm, spotlessly clean and had all the amenities you would need. Izel was most helpful, showing us around on our arrival. We only wish we had stayed longer as 3 full days was not really enough time to see all the sights and experience all that the wonderful city of Istanbul has to offer.

Thank you so much Izel - we will be back!
