IMPORTANT NOTE : This private room is located in a very quiet and silent street, especially at night time. During daytime there's noise of nearby school and thats all. There are no karaoke restaurants next to this building. (I'm especially saying this to avoid confusions because we had a flat next to karaoke restaurant in some other corner of our district)

I stayed for 4 weeks in the Gray Room in Dama's House and loved this place. The flat is very central (next street to Istiklal Caddesi), very clean and comfortable. Ali was was a great and cooperative host. Thank you very much!! :)
Dama's House is the perfect location if you want to discover Istanbul on your holidays or if you are there for Erasmus studies. The neighbourhood is really safe and central and the room is clean. But most of all, Ali is a great host who is helpful no matter what you need: a cab, recommendations for food and drinks, just anything!
Great place to stay for a short or long term, international people, really comfortable furniture and very polite landlord. I can really recommend this accommodation. Thanks Ali, for make my stay so special in your house.
I stayed two terrific nights at Dama's House. It is in a wonderful location with shops and transportation in close proximity. The common spaces (i.e. sitting room, kitchen and bathroom) of the house were clean, and my private room was larger than I expected. Access to the washing machine was a very helpful amenity.
I just booked a room for a night, before taking my flight. So I can't fully describe Dama's House. However, I can say Ali is a very very nice guy, he welcomed me very well. The room was clean, small but pretty and well arranged. Idem for the bathroom. About the location, it's nearby Karakoy's port (from there, you can go to Uskudar etc.) and nearby Istikal, a famous shopping street going to Taksim (a center place to take a bus and to go to the airport for example).
Finally I can recommend Ali and Dama's House ;)
