“so so”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2010

This hotel is located in Iznik, in front of the lake, near the ramparts. We had a large room with balcony and view of the lake. The bad surprise was the bathroom (very clean, but very small!), the shower has no curtains and the hot water is not even close to warm! On the other hand, excellent breakfast and nice service.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2009

We stayed for two nights and the hotel was perfectly fine. The owner appeared a little gruff, but that may have been more due to lack of a common language (we spoke no Turkish & he didn't seem to speak English) but the other employees were very sweet and willing to help us out.
Beds were comfortable, but only covered with a sheet, no mattress pad. The bathroom was an all-in-one shower/sink/toilet with a folding door -- a little messy, but again, perfectly fine. We had a nice terrace facing the lake and so enjoyed sitting sipping beers and watching the sunsets. The room faced the street but was quiet when we closed the windows, and we felt totally safe.
Breakfast consisted of tomatoes, cucumbers, bread, spicy pepper dip, a plain egg dish, and yogurt when we asked for it, as well as coffee & tea.
Recommended for those that like a quiet unobtrusive hotel stay with few frills.
