This hotel is in a great location - it is near the tram, behind the Hagia Sofia and a quick walk to Topkapi Palace gate and everything else. A couple days I would pretty much roll out of bed at the last minute to hit the sights since it was so convenient. The hotel has a pleasant covered patio restaurant and indoor breakfast area - great on sunny days. The breakfast buffet has pretty good offerings including little simits, cherry juice and other turkish specialties along with western food - I ate way too many potato croquettes. Staff is friendly. If you are a light sleeper - I would definitely recommend requesting a room on the more quiet side. My room faced the street - I was fine with it since noise ended around midnight and wasn't that loud - but various noises included the tram running and club noise across the street. The location is off a small street on the left side of the Hagia Sofia (when you face the entrance gate), the same road that the tram runs on. I found that not too many knew the location on my first day - but once I was settled it was easy to get around.
