We stayed here 2 nights following a week long cruise. The hotel has a great location and is within walking distance of all the must do sites if your in town for a short stay. The staff was very welcoming and helpful. We arrived early in the morning following cruise disembarkation, and although our room wasn't ready yet, the staff offered us breakfast, gave us a place to freshen up, and safely stored our belongings while we set out to explore the city. The ambiance is similar to staying at Bed & Breakfast accommodations in the U.S. - with the Turkish experience. The rooftop of the hotel has spectacular views of the city sites, the sea, and the surrounding residential areas. The bed was very firm and the room had all the amenities you need, including a fridge and a safe. The only suggestion I would make is if someone at the hotel suggests taking one of the tours with the "She Tours" company....do not take them up on it. At no fault to Esans, the She Tours company is very disorganized and the tour was not a great experience. Overall, If you are a looking for accommodations that will engage you in the culture, with a personal touch - this hotel is a great choice!
