Ekrem and his brothers run this boutique hotel and were very helpful and kind. They run a restful, tasteful boutique hotel and the rooms are a good size. Very reasonable price for a hotel in Istanbul. All their recommendations of where to go etc were very good. They have water, herbal teas and chai tea plus yummy cakes and biscuits in the lobby to help yourself at anytime. Breakfast was also very good, their omeletes are awesome. Very close to the Blue Mosque so jumping on the tram from there makes this place easy to get around. Also close to the Grand bazaar, which is always good when you plan to do a lot of shopping. Catching the airport shuttle was a good cheap option to the airport as per their recommendation. Ask and they will help you if they can.
