This was one of the best value for money hotels I have stayed at in Europe. The rooms were small but wonderfully decorated, large bathrooms with powerful modern shower, great in-room amenities (slippers, mini-bar, kettle with teas and coffees, etc). Staff were wonderful, friendly and helpful all around. Breakfast had a huge seletion of sweet and savory items, pleasing for any tastes. The location was perfect for exploring anywhere in the Sultanamet, and the staff were very helpful organizing transportation elsewhere and ensuring fair prices. They offer a free airport pick-up shuttle (although we had to wait while to depart as we were waiting on arrival of other guests at other nearby hotels)... so if you are in a hurry to get from airport to hotel, this may not be the quickest option. The only complaint I had was that there were some loud men staying in the room next door that were quite 'vocal' until late at night, and the walls are quite thin, so we had trouble getting to sleep early, which we needed to do due to an early start for the maraton. Complimentary drinks, sweets, and little gifts on arrival, and a larger gift on departure. I would definitely stay here again and recommend to anyone, as it was 1/2 the price of any other hotel I looked into and was absolutely fabulous!
