This I a decent hotel in a good location but the penny pinching policies put a damper on the stay.
The hotel feels nice and modern after a refit but the rooms are very small, My room had about 12 inches clearance between the bed and the sliding door of the wardrobe which itself was too narrow to allow clothes to be hung properly and not foul the wardrobe door when trying to close it. The other side of the bed had a gap of about 18 inches to the wall and balcony door. Although the balcony had curtains these were for display only so at night it was never dark in the room even at night.
My biggest gripe was the no food or water from outside the hotel being allowed into the rooms. This meant either smuggling things in or paying the hotels ridiculous prices for water. The bottled water in the hotel was 4.0TL for a 1.5litre bottle but the identical bottles were on sale at the corner shop next to the hotel for 0.8TL. The hotels other policies seem to make everything else extra, air conditioning was extra, the in room safe was extra, even the pool towels were extra.
Whilst there were plenty of sunbeds available the ones at pool level were jammed frame to frame the only way on the them being an undignified crawl up the bed from the foot end. On the upper sunbed terrace more space was available but this area including the sunbed mattresses was never cleaned during my 2 week stay, This was obvious by the markings on the mattresses that peoples sun creamed bodies had left as most refused to pay the extra for the thin abrasive feeling hotel pool towels. I also noted one particular cotton wool bud that was there as long as I was. Another thing to beware of was the use of glass for drinks on the concrete area around the pool, an accident waiting to happen.
Inside the building the corridor lights were on motion sensors but were rigged so that they were only on when directly in front of them this meant walking in darkness between lamps, this was also true for the stairs which were black with no edge markings when going down.
