I have stayed twice at this hotel and chose it for our second visit because the location is excellent and because we had been advised it had recently been refurbished.
There had been no refurbishment sadly, which mean that the rooms remained very dated and tired. I can't fault the cleanliness but the paint in our room was flaking from the woodwork, the TV looked like it had been dropped repeatedly from a great height, and the once white towels are now distinctly greying. The aging air conditioning system and the hard beds are not condusive to a comfortable night's sleep. The breakfast buffet is pretty average too. On a positive note, the views from the beach-facing rooms are superb.
The bar/restaurant staff are very courteous, however the reception staff can be a little lackluster. The public areas of the hotel are very pleasant and we spent a lot of time down in the outdoor bar area watching the world go by and enjoying the view of the sea and the Turkish coastline.
You can walk easily to some smashing local restaurants and bars from the hotel, and there are tons of convenience stores and souvenir shops nearby too. The Old Town is easily reachable with a very enjoyable walk from the hotel, but if you wanted to get a taxi back, it is a well-known hotel and your driver will get you there very quickly and cheaply.
I can't help feeling that the management use the hotel's superb location as an excuse to be lazy in other aspects.
