Make no bones about it... This hotel is 3 star. The rooms are small, the breakfast selection is not great and all though the rooms are done to a fairly good standard less attention has been given to the hallway.
However ... Imagine walking only 7 mins, wandering around, the hippodrome, through the court yard of the blue mosque past the fountain and towards aya sofia, in the evening, when all the crowds have gone. Or waking up in the morning, having your breakfast, and walking 10 minutes down the road to see the cistern basilica. The sultan Ahmet tram stop is 1 min walk away for a leisurely trip to taksim.
The hotel owners have not compromised quality with price and you get more than fair value. Definitely worth another stay if you didn't get to see all the sites on your first visit.
