We stayed three nights in April 2013. We used the hotel airport transfer service both ways which was (if I recall correctly) 60 Euros return for two people (in total, not per person) and was flawless.
As you'll see from other reviews the welcome to the hotel is detailed and very helpful. It starts with a city orientation on a map, pointing out tram lines, key tourist sites and so and then a load of leaflets on organised tours. My two tips: (1) if you do a river trip book it yourself at the harbour for a fraction of the cost and (2) if you'd like a guide for a half-day pre-book it from home as it costs much more locally.
Our room (101, appropriately) was fine in size and with a decent bathroom but suffered from residual drain noise from adjacent rooms. It also faced a side road so no view, which wasn't a problem as we spent the day outdoors.
Breakfast was a small but decent buffet selection and was included in the room rate.
The hotel is a ten minute walk from the main sites. The directions are a bit vague but part of the joy of Istanbul is getting lost - enjoy it!
