We spent 5 night at the Innova,with absolutely no glitches, recently (april end, 2012).
The hotel is almost walking distance to all the historical districts in the old city, and just a few minutes walk to the Tram station, making it very convenient and economical for travelers.
Sultanahment, being a tourist hub, can get quite busy and chaotic. What I loved about the hotel, was that while it's easily accessible to everything, it's nestled away in a quiet by lane...making for a peaceful stay.
The rooms are spanking new- spacious, clean and well maintained with all modern amenities; and each room comes with a small balcony. The staff was very friendly and courteous, with a ready smile; almost giving it the kind of intimate home feel.
The only negative, if at all, is the limited breakfast spread. While it covered the basics, there wasn't any variety in the menu for the entire duration of our stay.
There's a decent gym,steam, and sauna within the hotel too.
All in all, Innova definitely comes well recommended. I would advise you, however, to book way in advance, as the rates can get steep closer to when you travel. We booked a month in advance.
