Great stay!
The stay was great from beginning to end. They sent me pictures of the meeting spot so i could find my transport easier. Everyone at the front desk was so helpful and accommodating. Great location, close to everything and the tramway. When i was leaving for the airport, i left before breakfast was set up, so they made me a sandwich to take on the plane! What a nice surprise!

4/10 Fair

Thebroom wa spacious but the floorboards looked really old and looked like it needed renovating. The bathroom was so small that you couldnt get into the shower unless you closed the door. The bathroom sink was broken and the floor was dirty. The pillows were so low and when I asked for 2 extra pillows, the maid made a face at me. I asked for clean towels as all our towels had stains on them and did not look clean. I noticed the whole 3 nights we stayed the maids didnt change our bed sheets, just did up the bed. I once asked for them to be changed and she told me they didnt need to be changed. The location is great and so close to the tram station but i found it difficult to be comfortable as the room was a little icky.

Taxi scam
Overall stay was ok. We asked for taxi to airport from hotel and found out the taxi meter was off. Talking to the driver we found out taxi driver and hotel have a deal to charge us extra. Don’t ask the hotel to get you taxi, use uber which is basically hiring yellow taxis cause private uber hiring is not operational in Turkey yet.

6/10 Good

The only reason I booked this because I stayed here when it was brand new 6 years ago, seems like they don’t maintained the property, whatever broke it never got fixed or repaired and front desk was terrible , rude and don’t know how to talk to guests, I don’t think he know what service industry is all about , we booked a room at upper floor and gave us the room in basement and keep claiming that they gave us bigger room and we should be thankful, being an international tourist destination I would expect little bit better English speaking / understanding I can go on a on , so do your self a favor and look some other property
