We stayed at this hotel for 7 nights in November 2020. We booked their best room which was on the top floor with a small balcony. The view is not the best as it looks over a freeway and a trainway but it was nice to have a small balcony to enjoy and the water views were great. The room was nice but a little overcrowded with furniture. Bathroom was ok with plenty of hot water. A nice touch is they include bottled water for free in your in room mini fridge. Also include complimentary self serve tea and kettle. Stairs are a little narrow and no lift. No issues with noise. You can hear the cars on the freeway but not too bad. Neighborhood is ok. Nothing fancy but we felt safe. A few small restaurants and shops close by. Be aware that to get to the tourist area we recommend checking your map and taking the back way to the blue mosque area. It takes a little longer but is less hilly and passes most of the restaurants and shops in the area. A nice budget hotel. No major issues to report.

I stayed here in February 2020 for 4 nights together with a friend. The staff is very friendly and the hotel is very clean. The hotel is only a 10 minute walk away from the nearest sightseeing places located in the historic part of the city. Even nearer to the hotel there are groceryshops, bars, parks and restaurants. Keeping in mind the little money you pay for your stay, you can't really complain. Eventhough, I'd like to see some changes. Since the bathroom is really small, the whole bathroom actually is the shower. Everything gets wet, so there's not really a good place to leave your towel and cloths which you obviously want to keep dry. Maybe a few hooks or hanging baskets will be a good addition. There was 1 hook though, but it was very small and broken. (see picture of toilet, there a small cabinet next so the width is about 1,20 M en the same goes for the depth. The shower is on the right wall, infront of the cabinet) It also takes a very long time for the bathroom to dry. The water isn't stopped bij a small shower edge or something and theres nothing to wipe the water with, which left us with only one option: Shower in the evenings and leave the window in the bathroom open so it will be dry by the time it's morning. Not idealic at all, considering we where staying here during the winter. Also we had to share a socket during the night to charge our phones. It would be great if there were more of them. These are all small 'complaints' so it's not too bad. Especially for the money you pay. There's one thing left I'd like to warn you for: the sounds. The hotel is very noisy. You can hear other people very well and unfortunatly we had some people staying in the hotel that didn't take this into account. Because of the noisyness, you'll also be able to hear the mosques very loudly in the early mornings, so if you don't want to, bring some earplugs. Despite of the few negatives, I myself would stay here again and so would recommend this hotel if you are looking for a cheap hotel near the old city centre.

Quiet and exotic clean family business in the central neighborhood. You feel at home. The staff is very helpful and friendly. The rooms are large enough and have every equipment you need. Hot water machine, tea, mini fridge, air conditioner, television, water and soda .. All these are free. Towels change daily and the room is cleaned. It has a beautiful viewing terrace. The sea view is magnificent at sunset. The rooms are comfortable quiet and clean. It is located 10-12 minutes walking distance to the touristic and historical areas. There are many restaurants within walking distance. Very close to public transport. Bus stop 2 minutes, metro 12 minutes, tram 8 minutes walking distance.
