Ahmet Efendi Evi is a great place to stay - we just stayed one night but I would certainly stay here again if I'm back in Istanbul. Its a small and quiet place so probably not ideal for party animals but great for families, couples, solo travelers and anyone with a flight to catch.
Its a little hard to find the first time around as its on a small street the far side of the railway line but its easy to remember the location and its very central, 5 minutes to Blue Mosque or Agia Sofia while still being slightly away from the main tourist drag.
We were given a family room instead of a twin room as they were booked up and it was great, spacious bright and spotlessly clean.
Breakfast was the usual Turkish standard but everything was very fresh and getting a filter coffee was nice for a change instead of cay or nescafe.
High recommended and excellent value for money.
