Help with Istanbul Hotel for 7 nights?!

We've finally narrowed down our Turkey itinerary (see below). We still haven't decided on a hotel in Istanbul! We have 3 kids so we most likely need 2 rooms. We'll also need free wifi, would like free breakfast, would like to be in Sultanahmet (for the first 7 nights of our trip). The best deal I've gotten is from Osman han hotel for 85 euros per room. However, there's only 19 reviews written about it on Tripadvisor, no travel books mention it, no websites mention it and I'm confused!

I've also checked out Apricot Hotel (seems like service is wonderful but rooms aren't anything to write home about). We'd like some nice looking rooms because we are spending 7 nights in them! Any ideas???? Any recommendations??? I've also looked at the Hilton Park-SA which looks like a modern hotel but is it in a good location? Anyone???

7 nights in Istanbul then drive south
2 nights in Pamukkale (Melrose Allgau Hotel)
4 nights in Cirali (Canada Hotel)
3 nights back in Istanbul

We liked the Hotel Hali, but I am not sure that they have wifi.

We really enjoyed our stay at Dersaadet Oteli. I think the rooms were a comparable price to Osman. Great location in Sultanahmet, rooms are nice and clean (a bit small though) and the staff is really wonderful. A good breakfast was included but I don't think they had wifi (we didn't bring our own computer though so I'm not sure)--though they did have a computer in the lobby that we could use for free.

Thanks guys. Hotel Empress Zoe is fully booked. The Dersaadet rooms look small and they quoted me very high prices! Hotel Hali has no wifi. I've found three more options and I'm going to post another message

Basically any hotel in Sultanahmet will meet your requirements. I can recommend such really good hotels as:
Adora Hotel

Tria Hotel

I stayed at the Hotel Tashkanok for 8 nights in March and we were happy with it. Rooms were not huge but nice enough. Breakfast was very good on the roof top (enclosed plus outside area) terrace. Don't know about wi-fi but there was a computer for guest use in the lobby. We paid 555 euro for 8 nights including airport pick up and drop off. That was in March, prices go up for high season but still in your range. It was a five to ten minute walk to the Blue Mosque.
