It's a cozy 3-star hotel that has a good price-quality ratio, the location is close to the main tourist attractions (Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia and the Grand Bazaar). The staff is very helpful and cleanliness is impeccable (towels changed every day).

Calm, clean and close to Sultanahmet Tram Station. Just I advise them to improve the breakfast collection. The price is good and the staff is helpful. I booked room without window It was okay because I didn't feel that I need it.

My girlfriend and me spent 3 days in Efendi Hotel in Istanbul and we had a really nice experience.
The hotel is in the middle of Sultanahmed, where 90% of stuff to see in Istanbul are.
The staff is really kind and there were plenty of stuff for breakfast.

The hotel has a very good position is so close to the main attraction in the old city - Sultanahmet, yet is on a quiet street, without car traffic at all. The room was clean and well equipped, the staff was nice and helpful, they were always smiling. The breakfast was the same everyday but yet very diverse, with a lot of options. We tried all food and was a tasty experience.
We traveled by car and we needed to park the car somewhere else because the hotel does not have a parking but there is a nice parking 100 m distance from the entrance and it was so convenient for us.
It was a very nice experience and I would strongly recommend this location.

Small hotel but with great staff and well fitted rooms. Just 2 minutes walk to streets full of restaurants. 5 minutes walk to a tram station. 10 minutes walk to the Blue Mosque, Basilica Cistern and Hagia Sophia. From the 7th floor breakfast area you have a view of the Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia. Can not ask for more.
