Location was great. Breakfast was satisfactory. Good water pressure. Unlimited drinking water in dispensers in hall. Did not state in description that airport shuttle was not included, €35. Management had not turned on the air on even though controls in room, so hot at night. Mosquitoes would come in if left window open. Leaky shower.

Clean room and bathroom, easy walking distance to attractions or tram ride. Great price friendly staff! Breakfast was simple but decent. Walking distance to Spice markets and to Grand Bazaar for fitter travellers!
