this hotel is in a very central postition between the 2 metro-stations in Aksaray. you can go there from airport without changing the line.
its in a narrow street with small local traffic. from there it takes you 15 min by tramway to the historical center. you can reach all other parts of old istanbul by feet from there. restaurants are nearby but no touristic ones. most guests are turkish.
i recommend to take one of the rooms in 4th floor as theres a little view to Fatih-mosque.
breakfast is buffet and you can take as much as you want.
rooms are renovated new. only negative was that the TV antenna didnt work on all channels and there are no english ones.
due to the lower room rates for a 3*hotel its a good deal to stay there. you are in the center but dont pay as much as in sultanahmet district.
