We had a fantastic stay in Lukasz place. The house is very well located, in a very calm neighborhood and totally walkable to Galatasaray area. The best of the stay, meeting lukasz, his friends and his dogs.

Lucas's place is great. Location is perfect, only 5 mins walk to the main street with a lot of restaurants and shops, and about 15mins walk yo Taksim square. Room is very clean, dogs are cute, and the rooftop balcony was definetely amazing. Lucas and Salem were awesome too, smooth check in, warm welcome, and even took us out several nights. We had such a wonderful time in Istanbul, if we were ever coming back here we'd definitely stay with Lucas again! Strongly recommend for those who want to live at a central location to explore this vibrant city.

Lukasz's house is 10m'walks to the istiklal street. Lukasz and Selam are kindhearted and helpful. When in Turkey, I was busy doing my final papers. Selam recommended me an excellent historical library. For me, Lukasz's house was a good place to get away from busy life and enjoy a quiet,peaceful time. So I extended another four days ,at that time. Besides, Lukasz has two cute dogs. Actually I was once hurt by a dog, which makes me somehow afraid of dogs. But this time not, because they are so loyal, just like always really to protect you. Also, there are three lovely cats in garden.

I had a nice time in Łukasz's place. Both he and his partner are super friendly and we had great time together on the terrace. Although the location isn't central it isn't far from the main pedestrian street-just a very steep climb to get there. The room is quite big with very comfy bed- no chairs or table in the room though. Because of two dogs and a fitted carpet in the hallway and the stairs there is an unpleasant smell as you walk in. Having said that I would consider staying there again.

It was a fast day in Istanbul and I was very happy to spend it in the company of Lukasz and Selam & friends in their lovely home and peaceful neighborhood. Like hanging out with old friends, I laughed a lot and enjoyed our conversations. Hope to see them again if I stay longer in the city. PS: just be sure the dogs are locked upstairs so they don't escape. Another thing, Lukasz is so reliable and generous, he will give you 20 Lira every time you see him with a soda in his hand. (In other words, simply wonderful. ; )))

The house and the location provided an excellent place for a tourist to see the historic sights and the more modern sights of Istanbul. Although I did not get to meet Lukasz, Salem made me feel right at home. I would highly recommend this place to anyone wanting to explore Istanbul.
