Everything was terrible in this place.(Even this is not a hotel.) Cigarette smells too much in the room. Dirty bedding, floor and bathroom. I paid when I made a reservation, I did not want to stay there so i left the first date. But reception guy wanted me to pay. He said I did not pay. But I did full paid. This place is horrible, he could not speak English. His atttitute was bad.

Good enough
Generally it was good enough for the price. The staff were very helpful and the room was clean. The breakfast wasn't very on time though; sometimes they would clean up half an hour before the end of breakfast hours. Also the wifi was sometimes barely working.

First thing to note is you can not pull up to the front door because the hotel has a couch and chairs in the drive way where the locals and staff sit and talk. So the entrance from the street is usually blocked by a car. Right away that tells you they are more concerned with themselves and not the comfort of the guest. there is no elevator/ Lift. I booked a Seaview room and there are about 75steps up to the 3rd floor. There is no phone in the room, so unless your phone must be able to call Turkish numbers to reach the reception. The room isnt clean, there are dust and hair balls blowing around on the floor. The wall are dirty and the furniture is cheap and my bed was broken. The table on the balcony had never been wiped off. The bathroom smells like mold and sewage. the shower is covered in black mold, and the water doesn't drain well, so you are wading in mold while showering. There is a hose coming from outside A/c draining into the shower. The smell is so foul you have to keep the door open. Some of the staff is quite helpful and nice. My electric toothbrush disappeared from the bathroom and the manager accused me of lying about even having a toothbrush. I tried to tell him that someone had been smoking on my balcony and left the ashtray and he got mad and told me I can check out and he would refund my money. I was really happy because I had asked for a refund before I even checked in after seeing the hotel worse Hotel experience in my life. never clean anything.
