Pretty decent albeit tucked away a bit quite some distance from the main drag in Sultanahmet, this is a pleasant option that would be better if taxi drivers had any idea how to find it. In the end, after an odyssey to get there, we appreciated the neighbourhood it's in as well as the pleasant walk past rambling Ottoman houses to get to the main sightseeing locale of Aya Sofia and the Hippodrome. We missed breakfast on account of an early start. They took cards which is more than I can say of the Hotel Peninsula a mile or so away.
