We were really impressed with Esans. As the other reviews correctly point out, the staff go all out to assist you and to make your stay feel like home. They always offered us coffee when we returned from walking around Istanbul. We stayed over New Year's and they worked very hard to find us a restaurant that was not already booked, not to mention the kind offer of Turkish wine and snacks before our taxi arrived. The location is very central to Hagia Sophia, the Blue Mosque and Topkapi Palace, but also the tram stop which can take you across the Golden Horn to Beyoglu. The rooms were clean and quiet. I loved the Turkish flavour to the rooms with the paintings and glass mosaic lamps (romantic). We stayed five days so that it started to feel like home. I believe we were a bit sad to leave when we departed. I hope this hotel gets the attention it deserves. There are many others on nearby streets but this just had that extra personal touch.
