Excellent location - couldn't ask for better. One minute from İstiklal street (everything is along there), food market close by, metro close by and many, many restaurants. The best part about this location is that it's offset from the road just a bit, so it's quiet but still close to everything. There's a school across the street with security, so you get there benefit of that. The flat feels homey and the room is comfortable. I was there in the summer and a fan was sufficient at night. Ali is very available and helpful. Definitely would stay again.

In every aspect, this room in this house in this area is wonderful. The appartment is really up to date and well taken care of, which is a nice thing when you come home after another day of wandering in Istanbul. You can take some time for yourself in this big room, but because of the welcome feeling this house has, it is also nice to sit in the livingroom and kitchen. I really wish I could move this appartment to my own city. The location is perfect too. Just one little hill away from the Istiklal, the street where it is all happening. Also close to metro Sishane, tramvay Tophane and all the other forms of transport. Ali as a host is another great thing about this room! His help goes further than just answering every question, he really makes the Dama house a place where you can stay peacefully. Everything is been taken care of, a big applause for Ali because of this. This is my first Air bnb experience, and it really has been perfect. When you want to be in the middle of Istanbul, in a nice big appartment and with a good, safe feeling of staying, I would really recommend the Dama House!

This flat was the best choice for my stay in Istanbul. It is the perfect location if you want a quite place to stay at, but still be able to quickly reach the heart of beautiful and crazy Istanbul at the same time. Ali is a great host, very polite and always helpful. It is wonderful having a balcony in the room, especially during summer months. There are no complaints at all!

Living at Damas house is a lovely experience. The area around the house is varied and atmospheric, you can find calm and peaceful places to stay and a a few steps further you can spend your time at the lively locations around Istiklal. The flat is cozy and beside the essential things you can also find some usefull books and a TV as well. Ali cares for his guests and will help out in any case of need.

Already in a great neighborhood, walking distance from some of the best eats/drinks/shopping in town, this flat is only made 10x better by Ali's hospitality. He met me at 3am on the morning I arrived, giving me the keys and showing me around the house (quietly, per his request so as to not wake the other AirBNB'ers). The other (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) were awesome - polite, really friendly, and always ready to show me around and even took me out for a few drinks. Would absolutely recommend this flat to anyone looking for affordable comfort and hospitality within Istanbul.
