The first thing that drew my attention when handed the "welcome" note on arrival was a bolded statement: "It's not permitted to bring food and drink from outside into the hotel". When I questioned the desk clerk as to whether this just applied to the public areas of the hotel, he informed me that it applied to the entire hotel, including private rooms. I asked why and was told that the owner supplied bar fridges in the rooms and had a restaurant on premises and wanted to make money.
As far as we were concerned this back-fired on him as we refused to take anything from the in room fridge and boycotted the restaurant, with the exception of the breakfast that was included in the room rate. The breakfast buffet was one of the most disappointing selections we have seen in any European hotel.
Finally, our room, admittedly a standard room, did not compare to any of the pictures online and did not have a full length mirror which their online site said was a fixture in every room.
We also found the staff less friendly and helpful than any of the other hotels we have stayed at in Turkey.
