We visited Istanbul for 8 days and stayed in Tashkonak hotel.
The staff were very friendly and helpful - especailly Hayati -
most of them have good knowledge of english (which is not common in turkey)
the rooms were always clean, and have the essentials, with private bath and small fridge for each room.
above all, the view form the terrace is wonderful.
th breakfast is excellent and very well served. You will have a superb mornign with a peaceful view of the bosphouros.
