Prices here were high, about double what they normally were because of the "Formula 1" racing that was in town. Rooms were scarce and they could charge high prices. But when we needed one extra night, the clerk strung us along for a few hours, then said he could do it, but demanded twice the rate we were paying, (four times the normal rate) in cash.
Rooms were very tiny, but clean. Free internet access a plus. Nobody spoke any English except the clerk, and his was bare-bones minimal.
The location is great, within walking distance of Sultanahmet, easy access to tram, restaurants, shopping, Grand Bazaar, Golden Horn, etc.
