“Amazing and the best hosts I ever met!”
Reviewed 22 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

Peter and Ozark are amazing wonderful hosts that I ever met,such warm caring greeting I received when I arrived,Peter even took me more than half hour to walk around the neighborhood,such an unforgettable pure friendly and bright smile faces around the place.
Ozark is such a kind and caring person,he was at the doorway when he knew that I needed some help!
Loving this authentic Turkish place, just like Peter and Ozark they care and love this place and people come, Read the orientation information you received,you will be so impressive by the " authors"---Peter and Ozark!
Thank you again Peter and Ozark,you guys are the high light of my trip.( forgot to mention the house keeping, I met her couple times at the neighborhood shop,love her! )

“10/ 10 - Everything is impeccable in the Old Istanbul Studio”
Reviewed 27 April 2014 for a stay in March 2014

10/ 10 - Everything is impeccable in the Old Istanbul Studio where we stay for one week : Cosy, nicely decorated, so clean, comfortable, quiet, well furnished and well equipped.
10/10 to the owners (actually we would give them 11/10 if that was possible). They provided us with precious information before our arrival and once we were there. They are the most respectful people we've ever met. They had our comfort at heart and they provided us with all the insights we needed to make this trip a memorable one.
The location is absolutely perfect : No more than a 10 minute walk to all commodities (bakery, food or liquor store, restaurants, etc.). The neighbourhood is worth discovering, not touristic, with nice historical sites to visit and a great place to enjoy architecture and Istanbul's real life.
Every site of interest is easily accessible by public transportation (Beyoglu, Taksim, Istiklal, Kabatas, Eminönü, Sultanahmat) or simply walking. We had great walks from the apartment to Istanbul center in Sultanahmat. We walked through spectacular mosques, the University, the Wednesday market (not to be missed) and so many other places worth seeing.
