As written by everyone already, the location of this hotel is great as it is walking distance from major attractions. Book this hotel if you aren't staying long in the room and are just looking for a clean room and bed to sleep in. The room is so small there is no place to walk after opening one luggage. We came by taxi the first day and this is probably a mistake. The taxi driver could not find the hotel despite asking about 10 different drivers. There was also heavy traffic in old town so not ideal to be stuck in the narrow roads and searching for the hotel. Taxi driver gave up, deposited our luggage at the road side and told us it was very near, despite agreeing to drop us at the doorstep when we were discussing the taxi fare. We lugged our suitcases around for 20 minutes before finding the place. Save yourself some trouble and take the tram and have some idea where the hotel is before arriving. The hotel should be near both Sirkeci and Gülhane station, but we find Gülhane more convenient for us.
