We really liked this little hotel. We were a little concerned because we had read the reviews talking about how small the rooms were, but we found them very comfortable and definitely clean. We had a double room on the second floor facing the street with a very small balcony. The street is really small so the noise was never a problem and we loved watching out the window at all the activity. And once we closed the windows the noise disappeared.
This hotel is in the perfect location, so close to everything and the tram stops 1 block down the street. Our first week in Istanbul we stayed in the Sultanahmet district and when we returned we decided to stay in Sirkeci and we actually liked the feel in Sirkeci quite a bit better. It's lively and colorful and within walking distance to everything.
The main reason I didn't give them 5 stars is due to the staff. We never really found anyone there who was overly friendly and when asked a simple question, such as "is there a coffee shop near", they looked at us like we were from Mars. Also, the breakfast was definitely the weakest of our trip. Internet didn't work anywhere above the ground floor.
All in all we really liked this hotel and would probably stay here again. Great value!
