How to find accommodation in Turkey?


in Turkey by @pilat 7yr  | 8 comments

โ€ฆ or in any modern town (with multi-storey appt buildings).

Hi, Iโ€™m going to Alanya, Turkey this October/November (then moving to Goa). My plan for Goa is the following: I rent something via Booking/AirBnB for just 2-3 days so that we could be rested from the road. During these days Iโ€™m going to shop around for longer and less expensive accommodation. In India, they say, the best way is to do it โ€œofflineโ€: just go to streets and look for โ€œRooms to letโ€ signs. Itโ€™s Ok, I believe, in rural area with 1-2 story houses, but how would one โ€œshop offlineโ€ in a modern town like Alanya? I mean, you wonโ€™t go into a multi-storey apartment buildings and knock at the doors, will you? Any advices?

Maybe, there are some boards that locals use to rent flats? I donโ€™t like prices on AirBnB, to be honestโ€ฆ Especially with current Rub-to-Euro conversion rate :confused:
Besides, our primary goal on this trip is to try living โ€œlike a nativeโ€; not interested in touristic attractions.

Ok. Iโ€™ve found affordable option and hereโ€™s how: a friend of mine suggested a facebook group of russian expats in Alanya. There Iโ€™ve found few options, met with owners etc. The prices are surprisingly lower on the facebook feed than in most rental sites.

Here they are:

  1. Russian group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/rentalanya/
  2. Not sure about something similar in Englishโ€ฆ Hereโ€™s an expats group, though: https://www.facebook.com/groups/Alanyaexpatssocialgroup/ (warning: they consider rental ads as spam, but you could try to ask about proper rental group there)

The best way to find an accommodation in another country is to talk to some friend who have already been there. It is the most safe way to my mind.

Iโ€™ve been to Turkey for at least 5 times and iโ€™ve also faced a problem like you do now. A friend of mine recommended me a small hotel right in the middle of Antalya. I used his advice and settled there. BTW its name is Eski Masal Hotel. It is a really nice place to come either with your friends or with your lovers. Iโ€™ve also visited Eski Masal with my parents once and they also liked it a lot.

Nice service, good people, delicious cuisine - perfect atmosphere for those who are not looking for getting drunk 24/7 during their trip to Antalya.

One thing I say - Iโ€™ve visited Eski Masal Hotel for 4 times and I will do it all the time because those guys know how to make my leisure unforgettable.

Hope I was helpful, buddy!
Have a nice day!

In turkey you can find easily accomodation offline. You can find also good hotels with private rooms and wifi for around 30 TL.

Well, thatโ€™s my question: How? How do one finds accommodations offline in a modern town (specifically, in Alanya)? Where should I go first? Maybe, buy certain newspaper? Iโ€™ve read about โ€œgo ask where Main street isโ€ concept in Lonely Planet, but thatโ€™s applicable to villages, I believe?

@ali 7yr

Hello Viladimir ,

Alanya is a popular city in Antalya. Too many German lives there and they have their own houses. ฤฐt takes about 2-3 hours to reach the city.
I would recommend kemer or konyaaltฤฑ for a better vacation. You can find too many shopiing center and beaches are great. Too many russian,ukranien people choose kemer or konyaaltฤฑ part for vacation. I live in konyaaltฤฑ and too many russian family live in konyaaltฤฑ together with us.

By the way drop me a message when you come to Antalya. I would be gald to meet with you.

Cheers

Ali

by @levelsio 1yr 1 year ago  | 3 comments

Hi everyone,

I would love to hear what you'd like me to build next on Nomad List, or any other product/feature feedback ideas you have.

It's been 6+ years now but I'm in this for the long term and with the boost remote work got last year it's even more exciting to work on Nomad List than ever.

Current roadmap is here: twitter.com/levelsio/status/1363204985488572417?s=20 and pbs.twimg.com/media/EusS9PKXEAUR8xp?format=jpg&name=4096x4096

The next products/features I have planned:

- ๐Ÿ›‚ Rebase: visa, residency and immigration services for remote workers

- ๐ŸŽ“Courses: learn the steps how to go remote and travel/relocate

- ๐Ÿ› Gov liaison: diplomacy services to the governments to help us lobby for nomads and for them to attract remote workers

Thanks a lot!

List of Visa/Residency Information in Table/Spreadsheet format?


by @innovatelife 1yr 1 year ago  | 2 comments

As part of signing up for this website I was hoping I would come across a list of Visa and/or Residency requirements by country ideally in a table format to assist with decision making. Does anybody recommend any other websites that might present the information in this format (or Google Spreadsheet)?

Most Walkable Neighborhood / City In The World ?


by @dannybooboo 1yr 1 year ago  | 1 comment

I love living in walkable areas of town. I can always find them. But now I'm wondering where in the world are the most walkable places? I'm imagining walk streets (no cars), zoning allowing both business and residential, parks or beaches ,etc.

Any nomads in Arizona, US?


in Netherlands by @info132 1yr 1 year ago  | 4 comments

Hi guys,

After the Netherlands, the Bay Area, Colorado and being on the van life for 8 months, I am now in Sedona, AZ with a few other digital nomads. We are sharing a home here and are wondering if there are more like minded people in the area.

We do a bunch of hikes and campouts in the northern of Arizona. If you would like to connect with us, please do so :)

Are there any tax issues I have to be aware of?


in Germany by @clara 1yr 1 year ago  | 0 comments

Hi everybody. I live and work in Germany and want to go to Canary Islands for 6 months to work from there. I'm going to keep my current job, just change the "home" in the home office part of things. Are there any tax issues I have to be aware of? I was reading about becoming a residence after 183 days, thus having to pay taxes there plus my employer having to register there. Does anybody know how it works exactly? Thanks a lot!

UK Expats travelling to Turkey?


in Turkey by @davda1546 2yr 1 year ago  | 0 comments

Hi all, my husband and I have been living in Bulgaria for the past month and were considering Turkey next! Have any UK nationals entered Turkey lately? I believe that anyone entering Turkey will undergo health screening and if they show symptoms they need to get medical treatement, did this happen for you? Reason we ask is for Bulgaria we filled out forms but weren't asked for them) Thanks.

Any recommendation on accommodations in Cape Town?


in Cape Town , South Africa by @danielletom 5yr 5 years ago  | 3 comments

Hey guys,

Iโ€™m looking at heading to Cape Town in February/March. I am looking for a long term accomodation for about three months. I checked out GumTree and StayinCapeTown, but I was wondering if you had any more reccomendations on where to look! Airbnb is quite expensive and sparse.

Also, I would love to know your favourite areas in the city and hear about your experiences :slight_smile:

Thanks !

How to find short term accommodation in Chiang Mai?


in Chiang Mai , Thailand by @kathrynoh 5yr 5 years ago  | 12 comments

Iโ€™m planning on 6 weeks in Chiang Mai soon and most of the stuff Iโ€™ve read about finding a place there says the best thing to do is to look in person. Considering the short time Iโ€™m there, I would prefer to prebook to say a couple of days of apartment hunting.

I was wondering about the options for short(ish) term accommodation and if pre-booking is worthwhile or if Iโ€™ll just get fobbed off with the worst room/apartment available.

Iโ€™m just looking for something basic - so long as it has air conditioning. Having a work space would be a definite advantage as would closeness to coffee. Other than that, things like a pool, gym, kitchen arenโ€™t that important to me.

Price for basic accommodation in Santa Teresa, Costa Rica?


in Santa Teresa , Costa Rica by @niklasmodess 6yr 6 years ago  | 0 comments

Hi!
Me and my girlfriend are planning on staying 1-3 months in Santa Teresa, starting in May. Does anybody know how much we can expect to pay in rent, and if there are any good places online to look for apartments? Or is it better to look for a place once weโ€™re there? So far weโ€™ve mostly found more upscale options online but we just need a place that is safe, clean and that has a kitchen. A small studio would be fine.
Any help with this would be appreciated!

Hi there! I will be in Hanoi from 25 March and am looking to rent a room or share an apartment with someone. Probably around the West Lake area. If you have a spot in your place for me or want to team up and look for a place together, send me a message!

Or if anyone wants to grab a beer and show me the ropes that would also be much appreciated.

How is Istanbul for digital nomads?


in Istanbul , Turkey by @theunisk 6yr 6 years ago  | 13 comments

Iโ€™m soon heading out on my first solo international trip as a remote worker.
Iโ€™m thinking of starting in Istanbul mid June, and slowly making my way up
north, staying a month or so in cities along the way.

Have any of you stayed in Istanbul for a couple of weeks or longer? Anyone there now?
For accommodation there seems to be some options on airbnb.

  • Which areas are good and which are best avoided?
  • Are there any useful local sites?
  • Would it be worth booking a place for a couple of nights and trying to find a good deal on the ground?
  • What would a good rate be for a room or small apartment for a one month stay?

A lot of questions here, Iโ€™d appreciate any bits of advice you can share!

What's your approach to finding medium term accommodation?

 

by @andygreenwood 7yr 6 years ago  | 24 comments

Hi everyone.

Whatโ€™s your approach/resources for finding medium term accommodation (Iโ€™m thinking 1 month-3 months as that tends to be the visa limit)?

Been building up my work this year whilst also being a traditional backpacker so moving far too quickly.

Next year is all about picking two or three locations and โ€œsettlingโ€ for a while.

What is possible demand for a co-living space in Istanbul?


in Istanbul , Turkey by @muratkun 7yr 6 years ago  | 2 comments

Hello
Im a startup lover from Istanbul, and me and my friends we opened first non-profit co-working space for students near Bogaziรงi university.(we are also still in college)

its called " garage " spelling is in Turkish : http://www.garaj.co/

It is totaly free for students, we host events like startup talks, give workshops about ios-android dev, pi-arduino , robotics, data ,analytics etc.
We teach little kids (7-15 olds )basics of programming (scratch) for free

What im asking here is ; I need to come up with a business model to make it sustainable for a long time.

Co-living concept sounds pretty good to me and i feel like it will get just bigger and better in the future.

So im asking your opinion about staying in a co-living space which is part of a student co-working area for digital nomads.Its in university neighboorhood 40 minutes train ride to anywhere(Taksim-bluemosque are etc). Young passionate people around and decent internet connection.It wonโ€™t cost much :smile:

Thanks for reply
