This is a small, family run hotel right in the heart of the old city, less than 10 minutes from sites such as Topkapi Palace and the Blue Mosque. It's tucked down a side street so that generally, it's unusually quiet for a hotel located in such a busy part of the city. They're working on the nearby Sirkeci Station at the moment, so there is some construction noise in the evening, but - without prompting - we were moved to the top floor in order to minimise the effect.
As several people has said though, the real stars of the Elenaz are the staff. I don't think I have ever met more friendly and attentive hotel staff. From the moment we stepped inside, they couldn't do enough for us.
It's worth mentioning that it's a B&B, so no restaurant. But is does have a bar, and the owner directed us to a superb rooftop restaurant just around the corner.
They even gave us a little present as a token of our stay!
We have no doubt where we are going to stay when we're next in Istanbul.
