We really lucked out in our choice of this hotel. It's literally just a few blocks away from the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sofia, and palace, on a pretty street with minimal vehicle traffic but lots of interesting shops and restaurants. The hotel itself is small but charming. Rooms are basic but clean and quiet with good AC. Meals are served at shaded tables outdoors in front of the hotel or in a nice garden room indoors. The English-speaking staff are very friendly and helpful, and are always glad to sit down for a casual chat about life in Istanbul, Turkish history, or good tourist itineraries. I'll certainly return there on my next visit.
