We really enjoyed our stay at Ali Baba suites and we recommend it for those who want a low cost and well located place in the old city of Sultanahmet. The manager and staff were extremely kind to us from the outset and respected our needs. We had breakfast brought to our room at whatever time we wished, with hot tea, fruit, etc. The neighborhood has new fish restaurants and is very close to Arasta Bazaar and the Blue Mosque. I never felt pressured, cheated, or hustled; quite the opposite in fact, as it was similar to staying in a Turkish family home and they help us get what we needed, including international calls and an inexpensive way to return to the airport. At the end, we got along quite well with the manager, a very friendly and sincere person. I recommend the place and I will stay there again next time I'm in Istanbul.
Please note: the new manager is totally different than the old one, who was causing some problems, which have been fixed, as far as I could tell. I'd make your own judgement on the basis of the current staff, which I thought was fantastic.
