Staff are wonderful. Polite and helpful. They have gone for a French look which is cute! Not far from major attractions Would stay again. When we arrived in the wee hours of the morning we were offered fruit and drinks. The first room had an aircon issue so they moved us first thing in the morning. Breakfast traditional Turkish.

The location is very convenient. It is within walking distance to many attractions. The room is clean and like many old cities/old buildings, don't expect big rooms. The room is clean and nicely decorated like the photos. My friend and I had 4 luggages and had no problem with the room size and space. The breakfast is nice. Hotel staff... More

Unhelpful, uninterested staff, no shuttle, neither spa nor fitness facilities available, mediocre breakfast, noisy, moldy and smelly small rooms in an ok, but not great location. The only good thing was the incredibly reasonable price.

The only positive to this hotel is the staff. When our taxi dropped us off outside the hotel I was afraid to get out as everything thing around the hotel is run down including the hotel itself. It felt like I was staying in a ghetto. It is definitely not a hotel or palace but more like a bed in... More
