Ali's apartment is in a perfect location, close to everything as well as all kinds of public transit options, and the neighborhood is very safe. Although it's very central, it is still quiet and peaceful at night, but you're always only a few steps away from a lively nightlife scene or the waterfront. Ali was also an excellent host and very thoughtful. He gave detailed directions for finding the apartment that made my arrival much easier and even offered to arrange for a taxi when I was leaving. He goes above and beyond to make sure his guests feel at home in a new city, and I would absolutely recommend his place to anyone visiting Istanbul. It really is the perfect place to stay!

The accomodation is exactly as described. Its a very comfy and nice room. It has everything you need and more. The other facilities as kitchen, bathroom and living room are all nice and clean too. Ali is a very likeable and kind person. He welcomed me at my arrival and showed me everything. He is always available for request and very helpful in any case. The location is more than perfect. It is right in town but still quit. I will always come back and recommend the place for every occasion. thanks a lot!!!

Unfortunately, Dama's House feels like a university student shared flat (because essentially that is what it is). Half eaten take-out containers, empty beer bottles, and an overflowing trash can greeted us in the kitchen, while a clogged sink drain and a pool of water on the floor welcomed us to the bathroom. Five rooms share the common space. Apart from that overall issue, the room itself was fine. The bed was comfy, the ceilings very high. The location is fantastic and Ali was always available and very quick to respond to issues. He welcomed us to the apartment and quickly fixed the clogged drain when I brought it to his attention. He struck me as a very wonderful host. It's just a shame that the common space isn't more comfortable for use.

Response from Ali:
Dear Kayley, First of all thanks a lot for your kind words, and for your stay as well! I also feel very unfortunate for having such disrespectful and dirty guests during your staying time. Cleaning lady was in the flat 2 days before your check-in, she cleaned your room, and all shared areas properly. But it seems same disrespectful guests managed to make the mess in just 2 days. I am very sorry for any inconvenience, but its impossible to follow all actions of long term guests in my shared flats. I simply & gently warn people when they don't have respect for others who are also staying in flat, but as you know some just don't listen! I am sorry you felt uncomfortable with the mess, next time I will give you a special discount to make up for this. Hope to see you again!

I really appreciated Ali hospitality and flexibility. When I arrived very late, he was up and had gotten me a snack! That courtesy is appreciated.

Our stay in the Violet Room at Dama's house was wonderful. The room itself is picturesque and the apartment had everything that we needed for our stay (clean bathroom, decent kitchen facilities). Our (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) were witty, charming, and gracious and we hope to remain friends over the years. Their suggestions of sights to see ended up being some of our favorite parts of the trip. We both felt very comfortable and welcome in the house and we would definitely stay again in the future. Yes, there was construction noise and children playing basketball seemly at the crack of dawn across the street but a pair of ear plugs ensured I always had a great night's sleep. The bed was very comfortable as well. Thank you to Ali for providing such a great place to stay in a truly amazing city.
