Greetings from Istanbul :) This is Alihan, born in 1986 in Tarsus/Mersin. I have been through many areas of tourism business and currently engaged in both being a travel consultant and a host here at Airbnb. At our various rooms in Sultanahmet area, I'd be delighted to guest you at one of our accommodations ;) With years of guest satisfaction and understanding of hospitality, I am sure you will be enjoying your stay with us.. I am currently working as Travel Expert on Efendi Travel Istanbul and Reservation Manager at Deniz Houses Hotel and Naz Wooden House Inn Hotel in Istanbul.
I, myself, like to travel single and explore on my own without any hassle, taste different things, travel to quiet locations and get away from the crowds much as possible. In Istanbul, whichever type of traveler you might be, you can always find an aspect suitable for yourselves. Just come over here and discover this beautiful city..If you would need any suggestions, I and my colleagues at the accommodations will be happy to assist you ;)
