I get the impression that this hotel was definitely above average for Istanbul guest house standards, but I'm not sure it warrants a "very good" review. It was squarely good.
The rooms were on the small side, and the walls fairly porous to sound. Thus because our room was immediately off the stairs, the sounds of people going up and down early in the morning tended to wake me up before I wanted to.
The continental breakfast was quite varied, but I didn't find the ingredients to be quite remarkable. I noticed that the granola was the same brand I eat in Paris.
On the plus side, the wifi was strong, the energy efficiency measures admirable, and the staff very accommodating. They spoke English reasonably well, which was necessary because I don't speak Turkish, and operated a 24-hour reception.
Though not exceptional, I would go back, and I recommend the hotel to travelers on a budget.
