Stayed on 3rd floor (2 up from ground floor). No elevator which was OK as they carried our luggage up the winding stairs for us. One floor up (4th floor?) has rooms with some kind of terrace/balcony and the roof has a nice dining area (breakfast) with a view to Marmara Sea. I took a tea and raki up there every night. Decent room with a firm but large bed (I liked it, my wife thought it was too firm). Noticed the slight odor in the bathroom (after my wife pointed it out) but may have to do with the older plumbing and less than glacial-pure water. Not seen as a major issue.
Staff was great although the night staff spoke limited English, but we were always able to communicate. Nearby everything as others have said. Our room faced the Mosque that had the morning call to Prayer. I preferred to think of it as Evocative rather than annoying.
On the end of a seemingly ancient street with tourist restaurants and higher than average prices. Also net to the Taxi Stand. We wanted to catch a taxi to Galata and Mehmet (at the Hotel) said that it should be around 15 TL. Found a Driver who offer the ride for 45 TL, I offered 15 and he balked. Guy was trying to rip me off. Thanks for the local tip!
Decent hotel with friendly and welcoming staff (even made me some late night tea - aka cay) in an ideal location in Sultanahmet. Not the next-door Four Seasons, but I would consider going back there if staying in Sultanahmet again.
