This is a decent price for the location...it pays to be near the major sights and the tram. It's literally a five-minute walk from the Hagia Sophia (unless you have little kids like us - it's more like 12 minutes). The breakfast terrace on the roof has a view out to the Sea of Marmara. The hotel itself is on a side road without through traffic, so I imagine it is quieter than some of the hotels on the main roads in Sultanahmet. The service was fine. The breakfast was no-frills and I have had many better breakfasts in several other Turkish hotels. They arranged fairly-priced airport transfers for us, though, which was very convenient. We had the family room in the basement, which had a large bed, two singles, and a baby crib - it fit us fine and we didn't feel cramped. Even though it was in the "basement," the slope of the road made it so we actually had a fairly picturesque view into the side roads of Sultanahmet. We did have a small problem with a few ants the first day or two, but it wasn't a big deal and it was taken care of quickly. Internet and TV worked fine. I'd recommend this place for the location and no-fuss quality (but the breakfast was nothing special).
