We got a very good rate online for this hotel. That helped. The hotel is barely in the Sultanahmet. Very hard to find. We arrive by tram in the Sultanahmet and noone seemed to know where the hotel was. We finally got a taxi, and even he had to ask directions. The neighborhood is kind of dicey. It is very dark, down a very steep hill, past some strange little shops with random men sitting around drinking tea. The room was okay. Clean. The bathroom however had a real black mold problem on the grout around the otherwise nice tile. The breakfast was nice on the terrace on the roof. Overall, the hotel wasn't bad, just the location is not very good.
