Very nice hotel within walking distance of all the major tourist attractions. We had a great time. Room was clean and nice. Concierge was very friendly and helpful. Saved us money on arranging transport to the airport.

I was totally disappointed in my super-tiny room. The bed was a twin, and the linens looked like they were 20 years old. The red light in my nightstand lamp was weird. Positives: The hotel has free wi-fi, the front-desk staff is very helpful and helped us plan excursions in Istanbul and to Izmir.

The room was very small, but I wasn't surprised due to what I paid. After putting our luggage down, we went... More

Overall it was fine. The hotel rep was really good. All staff helpful and kind. Rooms OK for a 3* rating. The only weird thing was that we were supplied a kettle but no coffee/tea sachets and when asked, we were told to buy our own. For a 3* or 4* hotel, this would be a basic comfort for the... More
