This was my first time in Istanbul, so I have no comparison with the hotel standards. Anyway, my room was small, but clean and comfortable, the breakfast was good - but not huge. They did not have fresh fruit juices, nor particular teas, just common lipton, but a good selection of olives and cheese and marmelades.
The location is perfect to stroll around and to reach the city center. If like to sleep until late, remember that you are near a Mosque and at 5am the muezzin calls for prayers
The staff doesn't speak English very well, they don't have maps with a "You are here" sign and the guy at the reception was not able to find the hotel on the map, nor to give me instructions to go to Taksim Square (easy: tram to Kabatas and funicular, just 20minutes!).
I would try another hotel next time in Istanbul, but it is quite good. The prices are ok - I can't say how much costed my room because it was part of an holiday package.More
