We've private rooms for Erasmus students / foreign visitors in a secure & crowded area in the heart of Taksim/Beyoglu. We're located very close to Tunel Square, a few steps away from Istiklal Street surrounded by historical atmosphere, close to the major shopping districts, public transport, historical places, consulates (we're side by side with Russian & Swedish Consulates f.e.)
Our facility has 10 private rooms and 1 private flat in different floors, and its suitable for long or short term accommodation needs.
Each room has its OWN bed, wardrobe & desk. There's also an unlimited WI-FI access, heating in every room and every room takes direct sunlight except one. Kitchen, bathroom and living room are shared areas in every floor except the privately rented apartments. You can take your shower whenever you want. There is hot water 24/7, you can watch TV and DvDs when you want to chill in front of the tv on a comfy couch.
Please contact me personally for details, I hope I'll be able to help you! Feel free to ask me about safe transportation directly from airport to my location and enjoy your stay in Istanbul ! :)
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)
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 ;)
