Close to hippodrome and the Blue mosque
The hotel is convenient and cheap at my time of booking (Oct 2017) this is during the off-peak season and the tourist area of Istanbul are less busy. The hotel was adequate, the breakfast is basic but enough food there, nothing to write home about but its sustenance. The staff are very good and can speak English well also which is a plus. The economical rooms are not huge it would be difficult to swing a cat around but this is an old Ottoman palace converted into a hotel. In a nutshell if you like cosy, quirky hotels then stay here if you like your hotels on a larger scale then look elsewhere. This does not discredit the staff in anyway, they do their job when asked, they are helpful in pointing you to the main areas in Istanbul and provide directions, the cleaners always cleaned the room no issues and towels changed daily. If the breakfast had more diversity to it the hotel would be on my list to go back to but I think I will stay elsewhere next time.
