This hotel is relatively new and is very well positioned for both a slice of local life and access to the main sites of the Blue Mosque, Topkapi, Grand Bazaar etc. The Istanbul Photography museum is right opposite too... The tram system runs from five minutes walk away but for those not good at hill climbs you may prefer to use taxis (plentiful and cheap enough so long as they are metered - if not get a price before you start and offer them a half of that!).
The service is excellent and the food also - although I don't usually eat in hotels I did one night and it was spot one. Whilst the wine was a little overpriced (but good) the food was cheap for the quality so it balances our. The dining room and rooftop terrace with great views over the Bosphorus makes it extra special too.
The hotel want your stay to be good and their friendliness and helpfulness can seem a little full on to us reserved Brits - but it is genuine and everything they told us proved correct and helpful so full marks and thanks.
The room that I had as a single traveller was extremely comfortable with a great shower and good pillow selection (and even a pillow menu) but it was small and I would not have wanted to share it or spend too much time in it. Others where more substantial so ask if you are not sure!
The trick is always to ask if you would use it again and the answer is a resounding yes. For the price I paid this was a good hotel, trying hard, succeeding and then some. Thanks to all for making my five days so enjoyable and productive.
