We stayed for four nights at the Armada's "studio" room. It was essentially a fully furnished apartment around the corner from the main hotel. The building has three or four units with a rooftop that allowed us incredible views of the Marmara Sea and the Sultanahmet region - which gave us clear views of the Blue Mosque and the Hagia Sophia uphill. It was only a 5-10 walk to the Hippodrome area through beautiful ancient streets and shops. We were there over New Years Eve and watched fireworks from our roof - which was really astounding. The breakfasts were huge Turkish feasts. Highly recommended.
