My wife and I just checked out on 20 May 2013. The staff at this hotel were exceptionally caring and helpful. Our room was very nice, though a bit small. We were told the building was converted to a hotel just two years ago, which accounts for its new, modern interior.
Though the tiny street it is on was not attractive, the next street up was and had loads of outdoor restaurants which we enjoyed very much. Being just outside the walls of Topkapi Palace, it was an outstanding location for visiting the major Istanbul attractions in the area of Sultanhamet Square.
There is no elevator, but the staff cheerfully took our bags to and from the room. There is a rooftop terrace, though the view is compromised by old buildings.
We could have found cheaper hotels but chose the Esans based on other Trip Advisor reviews and were not disappointed.
