I stayed at this hotel for five nights with my family. I was impressed with the breakfast. In fact, it exceeded my expectations. The staffs are warm and helpful. The room (We stayed in the junior family suite) was adequate and clean.

I was staying at the IPEK Palas for three nights. I think it is in a great area. It is true that for US standards the rooms are tiny. I think when reading other reviews that people do not consider the amount of money spent versus what you get. IPEK Palas was inexpensive and close to most of the hottest... More

Our room was tiny! literally space for the bed and our bags. The bathroom however was fine and fully functional. For the entire duration of the stay the air conditioning was broken throughout the entire hotel despite being told on several occasions that it would be fixed in the next 30 mins. Pretty awful considering we spent all day in... More

The bathroom has a very small sink and a shower cabin, nothing fancy. The breakfast was the same, every morning and poor. The coffee was awfull. The... More

Good location, but not big a deal for the money you pay. They could improve on their breakfast. The noise is also a problem. You listen to everthing trough the walls, as they are too thin, and that isolated. Good for one or two nights, just passing trough.
