We stayed in this hotel during early May 2013. We usually stay in Taksim when visiting Istanbul, but this time we decided to change the area and picked the area of Laleli, and the Istanbul Royal hotel. The best part of the hotel is the easy access to the Aksaray tram station, you need only 1 minute walking. The hotel was clean in general, breakfast was a decent one, not much variety, can be better for an hotel of this rating. The breakfast area is a big one, but needs more organization where all the tables are big ones and if two people sit on a big table, others join them when the place is full! Our room at first was a small room, no space to put our luggage, but we asked to move to a bigger room like the ones we saw online before reserving, and the reception guy at first was "these are our rooms, I cannot build another building for you!" but then after some discussion, we were able to move to a bigger room looking on the main road. Room service can be much better.
Conclusion: If you get a good deal for this hotel, go for it.
