My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights and had a really nice time. Our room was very small, but so lovely decorated, even with lights under the bed! The shower was very nice with two shower heads, one large and one smaller. The breakfast was great ... lots of fresh fruit (strawberries, watermelon) as well as cheese, bread, polonies, yoghurt, honey, eggs and more. They did not make Turkish coffee, so we got that in town. The service was great as well ... the host is very friendly, talkative and helpful. He showed us to the best and oldest Turkish delight shop, and let us leave our luggage in their store room until our flight the evening.
The best thing about this hotel is its location. It is very close to a metro station, and right across from Topkapi palace. It is also walking distance from the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia, Basilica Cistern, Grand Bazaar, a nice hamam (Turkish bath) as well as the Galata Tower (although this is a bit further).
I have no doubt that I will stay here again if I come to Istanbul.
