This hotel is very nice and clean. Rooms are large and air conditioned, staff is extremely helpful and friendly, not to mention their English is very good. I did get a terrible room one night (broken AC that smelled like a swamp, and the only window opened directly onto a patio where the night crew sat smoking and chatting all night. The staff was very helpful in getting a new room first thing in the morning.
This hotel is not located very near the major tourist sites in the city, which is good and bad. If your goal is to visit tourist sites on a budget, the taxi rides may hamper you a bit, though taxis are relatively inexpensive in Turkey. There is very little within walking distance and the steep hills will make it impossible for many people. A taxi however, will get you to the major sites (Hagia Sophia, Sultanahmet, Galata, Golbaşi, etc) in less than fifteen minutes if traffic is not worse than normal, and for around 15 TR (like $8).
There are a couple of restaurants across the street that are descent, the hotel restaurant is also nice, but kind of pricey for lunch and dinner. If your fit and adventurous a ten minute walk up the hill and around the back side of the hospital will get you to the wealthy and trendy part of tow with shops, cafes, and restaurants that are expensive but serve really good fresh foods. Just keep in mind that this is the neighborhood where the residents speak Turkish with an American accent because they think it makes them look more wealthy and powerful.
