I have to start giving back to TripAdvisor after traveling over seas multiple times in the last few years. I found this gem of a hotel off of TripAdvisor and could not be more thankful for finding it.
First off, the hotel is located with-in a few hundred feet of all the main attractions in the quiet portion the Old City, yes there is construction but it didn't wake us up since we are here to tour not sleep all day. You couldn't ask for a better location, where as the other portions of the OLD City all seemed like tourists traps. The rooms were very nice, our room had three balconies, and the breakfast was good.
Second, throw away or don't purchase a travel book. Mehmet, the hotel manager did a great job planning out three day stay in Istanbul for us, giving us a map and suggestions on what sites to hit at what times. Mehmet was a very kind and generous man and wish we could have spent more time with him just to chat.
Lastly we had the hotel organize the airport pick up and drop off, and would suggest it for guests. We didn't realize how far the old city is from the airport. Less stress and no hassle just contact the Hotel a few days before your trip via email and its all set.
If you plan on traveling to Istanbul in your future I would suggest spending your time here, for the value, friendliness and helpfulness of the staff, and most importantly the Location
