Having stayed at SultanAhmet area for 2 days I moved to hotel Metropark for a 4-night stay in Taksim area. The hotel is ideally located near underground Funicular, bus/tram stations, and Istiklal street, where nights remain alive. Also, access to other services such as grocery stores, restaurants, ATM, money exchange, Turkish Hammam is conveniently close. However, loud noises of drunkards and winos late at night are a great put off, especially for those who are "light sleepers". Its a shame hotel management can't do anything about it.
The cost of room is reasonable when comparing with the cleanliness of hotel, nice lobby, staff hospitality, spacious room, toiletries, bath robe-slipper and delicious breakfast. With bus/tram/funicular terminals only 2-3 minutes walk away, you can plan your own tours of Istanbul at your own pace and budget. I will strongly recommend avoiding private taxis and Tourists Companies as the cost is unnecessarily high.
Warm welcome awaits guests at the entrance and doesn't end even when guests show up for check-out. Staff members are always on their toes to help any which way they can, indeed they take good care of you. I would definitely recommend stay at Metropark as it has more advantages than let downs.
