I had only average expectations for this hotel, but they were slightly exceeded and thus receive a bit higher rating that I would usually be inclined to give.
My travel companion and I had two single rooms- 304 and 306. My room (306) was slightly larger and had a mini refrigerator. Both rooms had a closet with a safe, small flatscreen tv with cable (I think the only English channel was BBC), desk or table, one chair and a compact bathroom. The windows open onto the street located close to the famous Four Seasons and around the corner from the Blue Mosque. It's also a short walk to the tram line and there are many restaurants and coffee shops nearby, as well as a small grocery store around the corner, where we stocked up on bottled water. One night, we took a taxi back from Taksim Square and it was 14TL, which seemed like a reasonable price.
The beds were quite comfortable and it was easy to fall back asleep after the ~5am call to prayer that could be heard very loudly. Hotel staff are very helpful (though as always, be cautious about recommendations provided by a hotel, here they gave us a packet of brochures, but we already had our own plans for the trip).
