These are my criteria when choosing a hotel - affordable, clean and good location. Sirkeci Park Hotel meet all these criterias during my third visit to Istanbul in 2011. Rental was 40 euro for double room inclusive of breakfast. Very clean and well maintained. You couldn't ask for a better location which is 50m from Gulhane tram station and 2 stops away from Eminonu Waterfront. You can even walk to Sultan Ahmet attractions passing thro many shops and Sirkeci Park.
Breakfast was OK, good for morning fill. The receptionists speak good English and are very friendly. You can even make accomodation changes at the reception without any fuss.
I would be travelling to Istanbul in 2013 and definitely will again stay here again.More
