We stayed 5 nights in this hotel in August 2014 and really liked it. The hotel was small and very friendly with an excellent location. It was cozy and very welcoming. The staff were very helpful in particular Yacob the night receptionist. The staff were respectful and didn't make you feel that you had to tip for every tiny bit of service. We were a group of 5 and they made sure our group for seated together for breakfast and made a special effort to accommodate the fussy eaters.
All in all I would recommend this hotel for location, friendliness, respect and a welcome introduction to Istanbul.
Although I do feel you need to be aware this hotel is located at the base of a very steep hill. You have to walk up the hill to reach the main road and tram. There are other ways round but take much longer so be warned but don't let it put you off.
