Breakfast was excellent and we... More

Real value. Really nice comfortable rooms. Owner really nice guy, very helpful. Don't be put off by the way the area looks. The area has character, away from tourist areas but close enough to walk to all the attractions. Safe area, great places to eat and cheaper than other areas.

The room I had was large and clean and had all I could have wanted considering the price it was exceptional value.

While the Helen Suites Hotel website gives the impression of high-level, it is certainly above average, and for the price, great. Good rooms and beds, kitchenette. The outstanding thing is that they advertise airport and tour pickup, and they really deliver! We walked the city for a few days. Helen Suites is very close to the Sea of Marmara and... More
