As many have commented, it is beautiful and well preserved, and certainly a unique lodging experience, good for a night. Don't expect any facilities or air-conditioning; WiFi was patchy as well. Also well located right smack in the middle of Safranbolu.
It’s an amazingly preserved 16th century hotel. But there are some minor flaws with the pungent smell in the toilet and flimsy toilet mirrors. But the surroundings makes up for the small flaws. Do be sure to visit the shops around this hotel... even if you don’t intend to buy anything as the streets are just a unique experience to walk.
The hotel is located in the middle of Safranbolu, which makes it convenient with many shops around the area. The history and setting is also interesting, since it has been a lodging place for over 300 years old and looks like a museum. But that's where the plus side ends. The rooms, while not being as old as the building itself (refurbished in 2004 I think?), are horribly maintained. For starters, ours smelled stale and musky, and there was no ventilation at all. (There was a small window looking out to the street but it was broken and could not be opened.) This was still bearable since we stayed during the winter, but I can only imagine how uncomfortable it would be in the summer especially when there's no air conditioning system either. The bedside lamps were broken, and so were many of the light switches leaving the wiring exposed. Only the main light on the ceiling could be switched on for our room. The side table also had disgusting stains all over as though they haven't been cleaned in ages (and I imagine as are all the other surfaces in the room). The beds were creaky and really hard to sleep on – probably the worst bedding I've ever encountered in a hotel. The bathroom had a different musky smell to it too. While there seems to be a ventilation fan on the ceiling, I doubt it's working given how stale it smelt. The shower head was mouldy all around, especially at the areas where water exited, and the water from it had a strange metallic taste to it. I doubt the latter was due to the water source, probably because of the shower system itself, because the water from the tap (which was tarnished by the way) was fine. The toilet seat was also broken and couldn't be lifted properly. This is probably one of the worst hotel rooms I've stayed at in my years of travel. While I understand that it's a unique experience living in a building full of history, and I'm not expecting 5 star quality rooms, the least they could do is have the rooms in a clean and usable condition. Sadly if you would like a clean and decent place to stay at (as I believe would be most people) this isn't the place to go. …
We visited there just for coffee and hookah after a walk in the bazar. The coffee is good, I am not a coffee addict though. The service is awful. We had sometimes to get our orders by ourselves. The hookah is disappointing and the prices too. The place is nice, but not very clean.
I stayed at this hotel for one night when visiting Safranbolu to enjoy an old-fashioned lodging like past locals, and honestly it was really a right decision. The hotel building was well maintained as past relay station, a huge open-air courtyard surrounded by 2-floored masonry building for guest rooms. Upon stepping up to the rooftop could I enjoy a fascinating view of this beautiful small town. The guest room was honestly a little tiny and dim, but still comfortable, well-furnished and maintained in great Ottoman style for a short stay for fun. Frankly speaking, it may not be a good choice for modern-hotel type travelers, but truly worth a visit for those who expect to obtain an extraordinary old-school lodging experience and unforgettable memory.
