Contrary to some previous reviews we thought this was a great value aparthotel style hotel room. Very spacious rooms which included a fridge, gas hob and cooking utensils, two minute walk to Taksim square and a decent breakfast (watermelon, cherries, cheeses, jams, honeys, cereals, boiled eggs etc - standard Turkish hotel breakfast really). If you cross the main road directly through the small gap in the railings (slightly precarious, just be careful!) you can get to Istiklal Street v quickly and there are some great wee bars in the area. We really liked Papillion on 31 Balo Sokak - there's no sign, just walk up to the top!
Beds were comfortable, airconditioning worked brilliantly and staff were helpful. Would definitely recommend.
One wee word of caution - as you come out of the hotel and once you have reached the main road, I wouldn't venture too far to the right. We got slightly lost on the second night there and it was a bit of a dodgy area. It's a good 300/400m away and the area immediately around the hotel is grand but try not to get lost as we did!
