The free airport transfer (for booking more than 3 nights) was useful on arrival. The hotel itself is small and in a quiet street, a stones throw from Topkapi Palace and close to Blue Mosque and Aya Sofia.
I had read that the staff were very helpful and I can confirm this. They were always ready to advise and solve problems in very good English.
We had a superior double room each on the first floor and they were well equipped and extremely clean but not cheap for off season.
Breakfast was in the historic basement and there was a good choice so I had a good balanced meal each morning.
There is a street of restaurants close by and we sampled some of them for dinner with mixed results. One night I asked at reception about a fish restaurant and we were given free transport to and from a very good one which was reasonably priced. Perhaps the car was because it was off season. We also received free transport to a Turkish Bath (hammam) which cost around €22 each including massage.
We walked around the old city a lot and it was always a pleasure to return to the sanctuary of the hotel for a rest. Tea was usually offered as soon as we entered the premises.
I have stayed in a number of hotels in Sultanahmet through the years and this is my favourite.
