My fiance and I ventured to Istanbul on a very last minute trip. We booked the Ferman Hotel after reading several great reviews and we hoped for the best. Upon our arrival, we were greeted by the very friendly Sinan at the front desk; our trip was off to a great start! Sinan took amazing care of us during our entire stay. We ended up asking to move to a different room with better ventilation and he took care of us immediately. Ahmed, the gentleman who worked on the rooftop breakfast & bar area, was also incredibly pleasant; he took great interest in our travel stories and really went out of his way to make sure we were comfortable. It was hugs all around on the morning of our departure. All of that being said, the rooms were gorgeous, clean, and quiet. The location can't be beat-- you're a few minutes walk to everything. I would come back to Ferman in a heartbeat!
Side note: make sure to print out the hotel address and phone number so your taxi driver can locate the hotel; this area can be confusing to drivers.
