if you are looking for a great little boutique hotel in the heart of Istanbul's old town then I would suggest giving the Hypnos a try. While the rooms are certainly not palatial the hotel is located ad the center of action but out of the way enough so as not to feel overwhelmed the moment you walk out the door. The rooms are very cool and from what I understand each one is unique.
The air-conditioning and WiFi were excellent with the rooms being well enough insulated that there is very little if any noise from the street.
