This was the second place we stayed in Istanbul. The rooms were clean though very small. It is well located for Sultanahmet. We loved the cleaning lady she was very warm and seemed to care about her job and the people who stayed at the hotel. The walls were thin. We were kept awake one night by a bickering couple. The hotel is situated along the tramway path so it can get very noisy. The windows are well insulated but still the noise is noticeable. Being somewhat laid back, we embraced it as a reminder of the hustle and bustle of city life- a city of 18 million people. You might not feel the same way and I admit I would make sure next time I had a room on the back of the hotel.
