This was our second trip to Instanbul in a year. Our first experience was with a hotel that was top-rated in TA (for those who got to stay there). Unfortunately they also engage in an overbooking practice which they use to redirect people to their friend's substandard hotels nearby. Watch out for this practice.
This time we selected the Hotel Perula. The only possible explanation as to why it isn't rated in the the top ten, or even top five, is because it's so new. The Hotel Perula was a gem in the same area as our previous mis-adventure and at virtually the same price... actually the Perula was in a superior location. It was new, bright, and welcoming, and non-smoking. The staff were relentlessly helpful, the rooms beautifully appointed, the breakfast superb. You can not beat the location in Sultanahmet - just a minute or two walk to most attractions and good dining. Just be aware that they have air-brushed out the adjacent buildings in their "official" photos. The hotel is, like most in the popular Sultanahmet, on a crowded commercial street which means that some rooms won't have vews. But you will have great internal views in your room to match the consistenly great service.
