Location: checked - walking distance from local attractions and night life.
Great service: checked - from the moment we walked in the door, and throughout the whole experience. Not just the receptionist but all the staff seemed genuinely friendly. Whoever is hiring is doing a really good job and the manager must also keep his/her staff well motivated.
cost: checked - great value
breakfast: checked - I usually much rather not get food at the hotel where I stay, but my boyfriend did the booking and now I am glad it was included. Go for the traditional turkish breakfast, I assure you the food here is on par with any other good restaurant out there.
Rooms: I dont think our room was particularly special, and I really liked it. It was spacious, clean and full with details (i.e.: art work, linens, shower, mirrors, etc).
Highly recommend it.
If you think you will need a pool or a fitness center, note that neither was available in site - I did not need them since there is so much to do that neither was in my activities calendar, but something to consider if you do.
