AIRPORT ARRIVALS:
Arrivals are by appointment only.  Please do not show up at our front door without an appointment to check-in. You could find yourself standing on the street with no one at home to welcome you.   We are only  open to receive  guests from 08:00 (8 am) until 23:30 (11:30 pm) If you need to arrive earlier or later than these times please inform us by email or by telephone. Guests arriving before 08:00 or after 23:30 will be charged  a one time fee of 25 Euros extra per guest.

Upon your arrival at either airport in Istanbul do not take a taxi.  Taxis can overcharge you. They can drive around and act like they are lost and all the time you are paying as the price on the meter climbs higher and higher. Please use Istanbul Airport Express.  We have used them for many years now and find them to be 100% honest, safe and very well organized.  They will meet you at the arrivals area inside the airport. They will have a paper sign with you name on it.  They will then  take you and your bags to a waiting van which will bring you directly to House of Turap Istanbul Number 3.

Travel time (depending upon the traffic from IST (Ataturk Airport) is approximately 30 minutes. The Istanbul Airport Express price with a van and driver from IST is between 25 to 30 Euros depending upon the number of people in your group.. The travel time from SAW (Sabiha Gokcen International Airport) to our guesthouse takes about 45 minutes and costs a little more. The manager of Istanbul Airport Express is Tarik and the telephone numbers are as follows:
Office: 00902125832758
Tarik's mobile phone number:  00905332520036

ARRIVAL ON FOOT OR WALKING:
It is very easy to find our guesthouse.  But the first time we suggest you either come by Istanbul Airport Express or make an appointment with us and we will meet you in front of the Euro Plaza Hotel which is across the street from the British Consulate in Beyoglu.  All taxis know the  location of the Euro Plaza Hotel and the British Consulate. The walk from the Euro Plaza Hotel is approximately 6 minutes. It is easy once you have been shown but it can be difficult for the first time if you don't know the way as there are very few street signs in our neighborhood.

BREAKFAST:
 We do not  serve a full Turkish breakfast but we do serve a delicious continental breakfast consisting of the following:
-sliced artesian style bread and or simit
-jam/jelly/marmalade
-butter
-honey
-yogurt (not sweet)
-coffee or tea
-orange juice
You are free to shop for anything else you might want to eat for breakfast or any other time and you can use our refrigerator to store your purchases. Across the street from our house is a small store that sells a little bit of everything. The bakery is one block away.  You are also welcome to use our kitchen to cook your meals. The kitchen is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week but  cooking is allowed only from 7am until 9pm.
