Bahtim was great - meeting me the day before to give me the keys since he was going away. The location is literally 100 meters away from the Galata Tower, making it extremely convenient yet it is on a small street with a nice café across from the apartment and quiet. The apartment was perfect for me as I needed to work and it had a scan/fax and printer which was very useful. The internet, again critical for my work, was fast. The apartment has a small kitchen with all the necessary equipment - and more different types of coffee making equipment than I have at home. All in all, this was a very useful and nice place.
