We had the first night in a room on the first floor, just off a patio. We were concerned with noise, but shortly after 10 PM people moved off to their rooms or wherever. Because of another group coming in, we were given a different room nights two and three, and for the inconvenience, they gave us a free Turkish Bath (on site).
Every time we asked suggestions for sites in Istanbul or food, they were very helpful. Very fair price. Breakfast on rooftop was with set price, was a reasonable, abundant spread.
5 AM - Blue Mosque call to prayer. That was the ONLY thing we found to have issue with - and it wasn't even their own doing.
If you want an inexpensive place close to many major sites - this is it.
