We loved it here! We arrived exhausted from the overnight train from Sofia and were greeted with mint tea and cakes, along with a friendly chat with the proprietress and a cuddle from one of the many cats that haunt the hotel. She offered us a room that was slightly cheaper than the one we'd booked, and it was great - bursting with faded Ottoman splendour plus satellite TV!
The en suite shower was pretty cramped but we didn't care - the view from the roof terrace was spectacular and it was a short, picturesque walk from the Blue Mosque and Ayia Sofia. Our hostess was also really helpful with local advice - she recommended a nearby non-touristy restaurant where we had one of our best meals in Turkey.
