We stayed at Anatolia Suites for 3 days and Istanbul was our first stop. The location of the hotel is fabulous. Its bang inside Sultanahment and a 5 minute walk from Aya Sofiya, Blue Mosque and the tram station. The other main destinations are easily accessible from the tram - Sulemaniye, Grand Bazaar, Spice Bazaar, Taksim square etc. The hotel also provided us a free pick up from the Ataturk Airport and arranged for a drop to the Sabiha Gocken at a reasonable 10 EUR per person.
The rooms were also well appointed with clean sheets and bathrooms. We however found them smaller than they appeared in the pictures (not quite 'suite' like) and with the beds in the living room there was not much place to walk around. The breakfast is a simple turkish fare but also includes cereals, juices etc for the less adventurous. We did not get an opportunity to try the room service but there are dozens of options in Sultanahmet so food will not be a problem (coming from a vegetarian this should mean a lot!).
The only disappointment was that a bunch of our cash went missing during our stay there and though we're not sure if it was the hotel but would like to warn all to keep a watch on their valuables even in seemingly 'upscale' places. Also at EUR 150 per night the place seemed quite expensive compared to the places my other friends visiting Istanbul stayed in.
