The Hotel is quite good, the room is little bit small, but the location is perfect, you're in the middle of the town, everything around you, Mr.Farahat was helpful and so kind, you can trust him as a friend, this is the most important for you as a tourist.

We stayed here for 2 nights and then swiftly canceled the rest of our stay and went to a hotel across the street. The bathroom was very dirty with public hair in the toilette, the bed sheets were not clean, one guest's minibar exploded the night before, the breakfast made you cringe, bad smells, rooms are very small. I would... More

I never usually do reviews, but in this case I want to save anyone in the future from making the same mistake as we did. We were under the impression that this hotel was three star, perfect for just a few days, just for a nice place to sleep and have breakfast. This morning EVERY guest in the hotel had... More

Well, it was a bit of an interesting start to our holiday as we walked in and they informed us that they'd not got space until the following morning, despite the phone call the previous day to check. We didn't have a choice but to agree to staying a night in their sister hotel across the road. Apparently this was... More

Please take note of all the terrible reviews for this hotel! Mould, mould, mould everywhere in my room and bathroom. Shower door broken and the mirror hanging on by a thread. Noise from the street below was 24/7 and in the hotel itself. Forget about the option of paying by credit card - the machine was not working and it... More

I am surprised about the prices shown here now. I paid less. Try direct booking. Should be 60 TL single room. I was on he third floor, which meant weak or no WiFi. But worked in the (comfortable but a bit grubby) lobby perfectly. My room was neat enough, big enough, sufficient, not perfect. Bed and towels changed often enough.... More

If value and location are key, this may be the place for you. Wonderful location in the heart of tourist area with many restaurants at the very entrance of the hotel. This is the best part. The rooms however, are definitely 2 -3 stars. The turvan needs renovations and repairs, urgently. Bathrooms leak water, furniture arrangements are awkward, and just... More
