Wonderful little hotel with a little bit of luxurious feeling to it, very nice staff and pleasant décor. Nice breakfast with a good selection of items (there should be something for everyone) not to mention the gorgeous view over the rooftops where you can see the Blue Mosque among other nice things. Room was big enough and had cute furniture, marble in the bathroom and creamy neutral colours. The only big negative really was the bed: rock hard and no real cover or even a blanket. I have been told afterwards by friends that this is standard in Turkey and that I really couldn't have expected a regular bed. AC works just fine, TV as well.
The hotel is very close to many attractions, to name a few: closest is Hagia Sofia and the Blue Mosque, also within walking distance is the Grand Bazar, the Egyptian Bazar, Topkapi Palace, the Archeological Museum and the beautiful Gülhane Park. We stayed for nine days and ate at a new restaurant every night, all of them very close to the hotel, and there were many more to choose from. This hotel is right where you'd want it to be!
NOTE: Trip was in the summer of 2010, not 2013.
