We arrived late having missed our flight and were offered a large glass of red wine each which was very welcome. It was local Turkish wine which was really nice and on seeing our enthusiasm for it, the receptionist offered us two extra complimentary glasses which were brought up to our room. There was also Turkish Delight at reception and when I said it was my father's favourite sweet back home, we were presented with the gift of a box of Turkish Delight to take home to him (this in addition to those "gifted" at departure). These small but uncalled for touches reflected the whole attitude of the staff who were welcoming, friendly and most helpful throughout our stay.
Breakfast was absolutely fine with a mixture of hot and cold foods and there was a meze selection available in the afternoon which was a bit more basic, but not charged for so very welcome when we were peckish on returning to the hotel.
The hotel is just off the main tram route and easily walkable distance to the tram stops and some of the big historical sites in the old town. A well positioned hotel for getting around.
Our room was clean and comfortable with no noise problems.
All in all, very worthy of the top rating on trip advisor.
