Easy to get to from the airport: buy an istanbulkart from the airport station (10 lira) from the vending machine and put some money on it so you can use it throughout your trip (travel discount and can use on all public transport). Take the metro then the tram, easy 3 minute walk from tram station. Even though you are close to sights you may want to tram it as the walk is crammed w people.
Cons: Rooms are on the small side, the walls are thin, breakfast is pretty average, sauna and jacuzzi are 10 euro to use, pool is next to restaurant which is a bit awkward when standing at the lift waiting in your bathrobe. Pros: 10 minute walk to Hagia Sophia, topkapi palace, cisterns, two minutes from grand bazaar, close to seafood restaurants in kumkapi, staff are helpful and friendly, rooms are clean.
Generally a good place to stay, would recommend.
