The only reason I chose this hotel instead of Monte Carlos for my one night stat before the cruise on Oct 31 was it was right across the street from the airport shuttle bus stop. But when we checked in around noon time I was told my rooms were not ready. I had to wait till 3pm to check in. After a 12 hour flight it was head to sit in the lobby for 3 more hours.
Our room rate did not include breakfast. I booked on Expedia. I realized the hotel I should have chosen (7th rank on trip advisor) is only around corner on Las ram las .
Service at front desk was very slow and not as friendly compared with our hotel in Istanbul we left. The room was very poorly decorated with almost zero amenities. No coffee pot, not slippers, no tub. Only a very small shower . The window in my room opened to the high ceiling lobby which means we must have our shade down all the time.
The front desk did not want to give much tour advice and the taxi they hired for us to cruise port was a rip off. We paid 40 euro for the ride , but the front desk told us it was only around 20 euro.
Please go check the ranking on trip advisor before you book. We chose the number one ranking in Istanbul and we were extremely happy with our choice. However this time we were wrong. We should have chosen number 7th ranking instead of Olivia Plaza Hotel.
Do not recommend this hotel whatsoever.
