On arriving the hotel looks lovely, reception area is large and has beautiful marble flooring. It was an excellent location, just around the corner from Taksim Square and Gezi Park
Our room was tiny and very 'tired' with a badly stained carpet, but at last we had a double bed.....possibly the only one in the whole of Turkey!! This was our seventh hotel in 12 days and we had almost begun to think that we had only dreamed of double beds and they were really a myth. On closer inspection we found that we had two singles pushed together, not a problem you would think, except that to do this they had removed the bedside table and the electric socket for the light and the phone lead now stuck out from the bed and were tucked under my pillow!! If the beds had still been two singles I'm not sure that I would have been able to open the wardrobe doors as the room was so small. There was only one very small luggage rack and I'm sure most couples have two cases, the other had to go on top of the minibar shelf as there wasn't even room on the floor for it.
Our room overlooked the side street that led to most of the eating places but was very quiet as it was traffic-free and lined with beautiful trees.
The breakfast room was a bit shabby and the buffet area was far too small to cope with the large numbers of guests, dinner was not included so I cannot comment.
There was no iron in the room and when my husband went to reception to ask, no iron was available and they looked at him as if he had asked them to do his ironing for him.
