We recently stayed at the Modern Sultan Hotel for 2 nights for a weekend getaway.
We've stayed in Sultanahmet many times with varying degrees of satisfaction. Price does not always equal quality and as this was just a quick trip we chose the Modern Sultan due to it's location and cheap room rate.
The room was very small which in itself is not a problem but this is the first hotel I've stayed in ever where there was no television in the room or soap provided in the bathroom. There are a couple of small bottles of nondescript liquid but that's it.
Our room was unfortunately situated at the top of the stairs and above the entrance to the hotel which allowed us to hear all the comings and goings inside and out.
Unfortunately there was also no hot water on our first morning. Which I could have braced myself for had we been told, but we weren't until standing there waiting for it to heat up for several minutes clothed only in my towel I decided to ask reception to be told that it had stopped working the night before and should be fixed today - which indeed it was, fortunately!
The breakfast was nice. Not a huge variety but typically Turkish with lots of vegetables, cheese etc...
The staff are also very friendly (I believe it's family run).
So on summing up...If only our room had hot water, a tv and soap. Basic things that make all the difference when you've got so much competition at your doorstep. Indeed there is a hostel right next door which is cheaper and has bigger private rooms - next time!
