Had a very nice stay recently at the Kent Hotel Istanbul. The room I had was clean, modern and tasteful, although even for winter it got very stuffy. Excellent granite bathroom (even the shower, which had a delightful rainforest head). The area is quiet and the Laleli-Uiversite tram stop was right around the corner (5-10 mins to historic center sites and maybe 20 to get to trendier Taksim). Room service was super prompt and shockingly, not that expensive - decent breakfast spread too..and free Wi-Fi with a strong signal! Customer service was otherwise hit-or-miss, but language wasn't too much of an issue with the staff.
The location is both a positive and negative. While you can walk to the Grand Bazaar in a few minutes, the only restaurants, bars and cafe's around there are mediocre, over-priced touristy spots. Would have personally preferred to be around the more lively and local Taksim/Istiklal for its amenities, but otherwise I had a really good experience at the Kent.
