We spent lovely 8 days in hotel Kumru in October 2012. The hotel is easily accesible by public transport right from the airport (ca. 45 min. trip) and located right in the heart of the Sultanahment historic district. That makes all the key city landmarks in this part of town right within a short walk. So this hotel can serve as great headquarters for seeing Istanbul and taking advantage of all its treasures. The hotel is run by an Amarican lady form Boston and her Turkish friend. They make w very welcoming and friendly duo of managers. They offer a lot of advice on the sights to see, restaurants to visit and a handful of guide books. Breakfasts are served at the rooftop terrace - what a wonderful way to start the day overlooking th city in a gentle breeze. The food is plentiful and very tasty - just somethong you need to accumulate energy necessary for a busy day. The room and bathroom were very clean. All the interiors are freshly redecorated. The hotel is not cheap, which for some could be a significant dwonside, but well worth checking it out due to all the above mentioned "upsides" :)
