If you want to be in the thick of the action, this is the place. However, having written that, there is the tram running outside the hotel and if your room faces the front and you are a light sleeper, it could use you some concerns. Initially we were in room 102 and as I could not sleep the first night, the concierge was kind enough to put us in 403 which was much better. We arrived by 10am and the concierge at that time, Mr. E. Guven was kind enough to give us a room. In fact, you can not fault the concierges as they were very kind and helpful. There is an adjoining restaurant to the hotel where hotel guests also receieve 15% discount on the food. The breakfast was fine, love that yoghurt!!! From the hotel, you are within 10 minutes to just about everything including the hop on, hop off bus and the tickets can be pruchased from the concierge. The Grand Bazaar is perhaps 10 minutes away as well (opposite direction to Topkapi Palace,the Blue Mosque, etc) . There is so much to see and do in Istanbul...it is magical..
