I found Hotel Niles through a search on Trip Advisor and am very pleased with the experience.
It has a great location for a tourist, being situated opposite the Grand Bazaar and close to important sights like Aya Sofya and the Blue Mosque. Tramway stop Lâleli - Üniversite is just around the corner and metro station Vezneciler, the perfect connection to Taksim - Beyoğlu, is just about a 6-7 minutes' walk away.
The room had its small flaws, like a few scratches on the wall and tiles in the bathroom that might need being changed, but the overall impression of it was very good: comfortable, charming and very clean. The room was a little noisy because of an ongoing construction just opposite the hotel (on quite a narrow street), but the insulation removed most of the sound.
The breakfast on the terrace was a delight with a nice breeze and a wide choice of food.
And last but not least: the excellent and very helpful staff!
