This hotel is exactly what is claims to be - an historic but adapted old house in the center of the historic Sultanhamet area of Istanbul.
Location - it is an easy (if slightly uphill) walk to the main tourist sites of the Blue Mosque, the Hagia Sophia and the Tokapi Palace. This also means that you can easily use the tram system to access the city (Sultanhamet is a stop on the T1 line) and get to the ferry terminal.
Clean - very and the rooms are well cared for each day.
Comfortable - good air con, well double glazed windows against the city noise and nice firm beds.
Breakfast - buffet style breakfast on the roof terrace is an easy way to start the day with pleasant views of the Blue Mosque and the Bosphorous.
Staff - always helpful and polite but not too much - perfect balance.
Very close to many restaurants - if you want to eat close to the hotel.
They make this clear but be aware that that it is not suitable for people with mobility issues - there is no elevator and access to breakfast is up 4 flights of steep marble stairs / spiral staircase. Of course, your room might be lower down. There is no need to worry about cases - the staff will help with those.
You cannot expect the facilities of a modern purpose built hotel in the building like this - but you should know that before booking.
