we had a pleasant stay here, (4 nights). It served its purpose as we only really wanted somewhere to sleep. As much as i`d like to say we would stay again, i can`t. The receptionist, mehmet, was very helpful but he didn`t really have much to work with. Unfortunately we had bad weather so things (electrical) didn`t work in our... More

After explaining it would be in our account in... More

It's the same hotel as Cozy suites, same building same staff, so I suggest you read the reviews for that hotel as well. I wouldn't give them more than one star, it's dirty and it always smells of smoke because they smoke inside, when we've been there the light up in the stairs was broken and it was really dangerous,...
