We stayed 4 nights through BA deal. Great value. Hotel is in Sultanahmet and walkable to all the tourist locations, Blue Mosque, Topkapi Palace (closed Tuesdays), Hagia Sophia (closed Mondays), Basilica Cistern, Hippodrome. We took the tram from airport to hotel, we followed the hotels instructions on the website and it was v easy - 4 lira each! Little walk from Sultanahmet tram station to hotel, but downhill, past the Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia!!
Quiet area. We stayed in room 107 ground floor front overlooking the street, but it was quiet. Our room was fine, a/c worked, minibar, tv with 3 English channels (BBC news), our friends room B3 was smaller but overlooked the back of the hotel so even quieter. Breakfast was usual fare and was in a lovely small central garden area. Staff very friendly and helpful, they printed off our boarding passes no prob. Rooftop bar ok, (no lift) prices ok - pint of beer 10 lira, g+t 14 lira. Istanbul not as cheap as it used to be! Plenty of bars and restaurants closeby.
We used tram for grand bazaar - 2 stops, but could have walked. Definitely recommend this little family run Hotel.
