We stayed at this apartment for 5D/4N trip at Istanbul on October 2012.
This apartment has a good location at Sultanahmet.. It really close to Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia Museum, Topkapi Palace, and Arista Bazaar area.. and around 10min walk to the Grand Bazaar. You could easily found restaurant or cafe around this area, and shops which open till late.
Although they don't put some sign which describe it as an inn.. (which on some conditions can makes you confuse on finding the address).. You can easily found it in front of the five star hotel : Eresin Crown Hotel. The owner of this apartment also own a bar which located next to the apartment building, named Hippodrome Bar.
The owner, Mr. Murat, was helpful during our stay.. On the morning where we should check-in at Hippodrome Apartment, someone named Mr. Bahattin from Indo Hotel has scammed us, he claimed himself to be the owner of Hippodrome Apartment and drag us to an empty creepy old apartment building.. and Mr. Murat helped us talk to the guy and his boss and get our money back..
For the room.. It's adequate, not a big one but it's simple, modern, and comfortable. You are advised to ask for some cleaning service for the room when needed..
For the shared bathroom, it's so small.. All the toilet, shower, and handwash was in 1 small room. And on the floor which I stayed, there're only 1 bathroom to share. Fortunately, during our stay it's not a crowded one.. Well, I think there're only us there.. So the bathroom is not a problem to us.. :)
