“Lackluster hotel”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2012

Let's start with the positive. Great location on a small sidestreet near the Clock Tower and the seaside promenade; that is their strong point. The fellow at the front desk was pleasant enough. Breakfeast was basic with hard boiled eggs, 2 mornings out of 3, tasteless white cheese slices, olives, slices of cucumber and tomatoes, commercial jams, instant coffee, but excellent bread. There is absolutely no effort for decoration in the rooms, lobby or breakfeast space with a large tv screen blasting low end tv programs. No sign for 3 days of any made service; we ran out of toilet paper and had to fetch some from an unoccupied room. Hot water in the shower only. The view from our window was not an inviting site with the dump of the construction site next door and a garden without maintenance; noise from the construction site was also annoying during daytime.

1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2012

We have spent 2.5 months travelling in Turkey so far. This was a worst experience we had.

We came back from day trip at evening and found out the 'too helpful' hotel's staff packed our bag leave them in lobby. Practically throw us out, even though we haven't check out. And didn't tell them we are checking out.

We are so shocked and insist to go into the room to confirm we didn’t left anything there. They just play naïve and ignorant that he is new. The rude staff seems to expect us to thanks them for helping packing our luggage for the unexpected check out.
Not recommended.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2012

We had a small doble room with bathroom. The place is very clean and new and the room had a nice tiny balcony. The bathroom is small and the shower is the all bathroon (no box) but it dries fast. The people at the reception doesn't speck english and they cannot help you if you are searching for information, but the pension is in the center and you have the turist info office just round the corner.
The room has air conditioning and fast WIFI.
The breakfast was good, fruits, sweet cake, bread, marmelade, cheese and coffee or thea and you can have it outside in a small terrace.
The place is near the sea where all the bars and restaurant are located. PERFECT!
Highly reccomended!
