It is a perfect place! Service is just excellent! You get all the possible information you might need about the city at any time. Staff is very friendly and welcoming (you get free tea, water and they make great recommendations for restaurants and things to do!)
We had a small room with a small balcony (with table and chairs) and direct view to the Galata Tower (which is practically 20 meters away). Breakfast is good and you have it at a very nice cafe 1 min away from hotel. The hotel looks recently renovated and is very clean.
Location is also great. The tram station is 5 min away and from there you can reach all the major sites of Istanbul (most of them without even changing the line). There are also many restaurants and bars in the nearest vicinity.
Plus, internet works really well!! So if you need to work a bit during your stay, have no worries.
Cons: It is somewhat difficult to spot, as the name of the hotel is written very very small. So call the hotel when you are standing in front of the Galata Tower (it's a 20sec walk away)
