Stayed for 3 nights while touring Turkey with my family. It was a relief to find an apartment in the middle of Istanbul where we could relax between sight seeing expeditions.
The apartment is above a small café. My first concerns that it might be too noisy to sleep. In reality it was no problem at all, the rooms are double glazed with air con.
The rooms were basic but very clean and tidy.
The location is excellent for sight seeing with many sights a few minutes walk away. The owner is very friendly and eager to please.
Breakfasts were a bit hit and miss with the owner working late in the café and not always ready for breakfast :)
All in all I would definitely recommend for a family looking to explore Istanbul on a budget.
