I have been to Istanbul twice in the last six months, and I have stayed at the Ferman both times. I was referred to this hotel on the recommendation of some friends who visit Istanbul twice a year. The location of this hotel is excellent. It is in the heart of Sultanahmet and the roof deck (where you have breakfast and/or afternoon/evening drinks) has the most phenomenal view. The Sea of Marmara is on one side and the Blue Mosque and Aya Sofia on the other side. When you walk out of the front door, there is a street with a host of restaurants about two blocks away. There is a bazaar at the top of the hill next to a restaurant where you can smoke hookah and watch whirling dervishes. And you are a very short walk from both the Blue Mosque and Aya Sofia. The hotel is reasonably priced and also can arrange for a shuttle to or from the airport. And the juice, biscuits, and Turkish delight in the lobby is always a welcome site. If you pay in cash, the hotel will typically offer a 5% discount. This is a solid hotel in a great location and I would highly recommend this place.
