Istanbul hotel which overlooks blue mosque or hagia sophia - from room?

I am looking for a reasonably priced hotel which has a good close up view overlooking the sultan ahmet mosque or aya sophia - from the room.
I know the 4 seasons does but I can't pay $300/night.
I was looking at the aya sophia pensione, (street side), sultanahmet palace and hotel nomade penthouse suite. Any other ideas?

thanks

We stayed in May at the Ayasofya Pensionari, just behind Aghia Sofia. Rooms smallish but comfortable, about 110 for two. However, being so close to Aghia Sofia, the muezzin wakes you up each morning with the dawn call to prayer! The hotel consists of old Turkish houses that have been renovated and there are four rooms to each house. The street is cobbled and closed to traffic.
