We stayed at this family-owned hotel for 8 nights and had a comfortable stay. The english-speaking staff Tarik, Gokhan and manager Sedat were super friendly and helpful in getting bookings and reservations that we needed.
The hotel is right next to the Blue Mosque on a fairly quiet street. All the major attractions are within walking distance from the hotel. The Sultanahmet tram station is a short walk away. We took the tram to Kabatas and then the funicular to Taksim Square. We got some of the best money exchange rates with no commission near the Beyazit tram station which was about 15 minutes walk away from the hotel. The entrance gate 5 for the Grand Bazaar (Kapili Karsi) is on to the right.
Restaurants are plentiful near Sultan Hill and we tried a few before we settled for one that suited our taste and pocket. Just make sure you ask for the price of anything before you consume it, or else you may end up paying a ridiculous price. There are many dishonest vendors and touts, so save your money! We had some of the best Turkish baklava at Haji Mustafa, just across from Sirkeci station at the corner of Ankara Cad. The manager was friendly and hospitable. The Hoca Pasa cultural center (where we went for the Whirling Dervishes show) is located nearby Sirkeci tram station . Booking was made by the Sultan Hill hotel for us.
To and fro from Ataturk airport and hotel was arranged online by ourselves with a private transfer services and it was on-time, fast, affordable and hassle free. If you are looking for any tour, make sure to shop around as the same tour can be sold by agents for a different price.
