The hotel is charming--lots of atmosphere, terrific location if you want to tour Ayasofia, Topkapi, etc. There's even a little takout/snack shop across the street (we bought out their weekly stock of Coke Zoro). Comfortable beds, nice bathrooms, and good a/c. Most of all, we enjoyed the staff (WONDERFUL--kind and helpful), our fellow travellers (lots of people like us and others who weren't), and the terrific breakfast with the sea view. As others have noted, you're in a prime location to hear the calls to prayer from the mosques; these added to the expereince in our view. Definitely pay attention to the dimensions of the room you request: they vary greatly in size.
This hotel was just what we wanted and added to our wonderful 9 days in Istanbul.
