Found this hotel based on the TripAdvisor reviews. We are a family of 5 and we booked two rooms - a junior suite and a deluxe room. The deluxe room had a full bed that slept two comfortably and had a door that entered onto the couryard that was used for breakfast - it basically was ours to use throughout the trip and was empty most of the day (even at breakfast when people were outside it was quiet and we have curtains on the windows to block the views).
The Junior suite was nice - one bedroom with full (two-person) bed and two twin sofa beds. The room had a stove, coffeemaker, dishwasher and refrigerator. The hotel is a block from a 24-hour convenience store so you can stock up and bring back items to the room.
The hotel is clean; free wifi very good and the price of the room includes breakfast. Burak was a terrific help - arranged transportation to/from the airport and also helped with sightseeing trips. The location is great - a 5-7 minute walk to Taksim Square where you can catch the metro to Old Town and also walk through the New Town shopping district.
This was a great choice - would definitely recommend to others!
