The main reason I got this place is that it's right off a main metro line that takes you to the airport (red line), intersecting with another line that takes you to the main attraction areas of old Istanbul like Sultan Ahmet, Eminonu, and Bayezit (blue line), and it was not that far from Yenikapi station (grey line) where it'll take you to the Asian side (Uskudar). The blue line is a little slow and has many stops, so I may have chosen a hotel closer to the main attractions, but it was still a very good location. the down side (which I didn't really think of) of being in this location is that it's noisy. I'm a light sleeper, but it was still not bad. The breakfast is excellent, as is the case for many Turkish hotels (compared to typical breakfast of 3 star American hotels like Hampton Inn, Courtyard Plaza, and the like). You have a few olive varieties, jam varieties, cheese varieties, cold cuts (meats), cold cooked veggies, proteins (2-3 varieties of eggs, sujuk, etc), cereals, and more. The room I booked was double bed single occupancy, but I found it to be on the small side, probably the smallest in the hotel (based on the fire escape map posted in my room). I didn't use any amenities (gym, pool, cafe, etc) so I don't have any comments about them. Given the price, it was a good deal for me, I'm pleased with the experience.
