My boyfriend and I stayed at the Ayasultan for 3 nights in October. At first we were pretty disappointed with the view in our room, since it looked out into a shaft between the hotel and the building beside it. We asked for a room change but they could only move us on our last night.
The actual room however, was very nice. Not too big, but it was fine for us. Contrary to what some people wrote, I found our room very clean and comfortable. Very modern design as well.
The location of the hotel was amazing. You are walking distance to most of the 'must see' places around Istanbul, and the restaurant area is just around the corner.
The breakfast was OK, but what I enjoyed most about the breakfast was the amazing view in the dining area. We sat up there every morning and enjoyed a cappuccino.
The staff was friendly, but not as openly helpful as some other hotels we stayed at in Turkey.
To sum it up, it is a nice, clean, quiet, modern boutique hotel right in the middle of everything. That is all that mattered to us. At the end of the stay, we didn't really care about the lack of window and view.
I would recommend this hotel.
