My husband and I decided to spend three nights here in October after an earlier stay some two years ago. Sadly, we didn’t enjoy our stay as much this time. We were given a very dark room at the back of the building: the back of the hotel is only a few meters from a wall of gloomy and oppresive buildings and there is no view whatsoever. We therefore requested a front room and the tense and humorless (but well dressed) man at reception informed us that there was major construction work occurring across the street of an historic building and that noise could be a problem night and day, even on weekends. Preferring light and air to dark and gloom, we opted for a front room with balcony, glass doors and side windows. We were fortunate that the noise did not inhibit our sleep, although we certainly couldn’t tolerate having the windows open.
Our room was comfortable and pleasantly decorated in Ottoman style. However, there was no complimentary bottled water for brushing one’s teeth, etc. There was also no electric kettle or tea/coffee making facilities. (I’m fairly sure they were present two years ago.) We were told that the staff would bring us a tray with hot water, cups, etc., upon request, but this made preparing cups of coffee and tea in our room prolonged, awkward and unsatisfactory. Perhaps it would be a good alternative for the hotel to offer complimentary tea, coffee and biscuits in the lobby. The lobby is large and attractive and would cope well with such a scheme: it would add a nice feel to the hotel and make the guests feel welcome.
