We stayed at the Savoy Ottoman and found a different story to earlier reviewers. I guess management must have been reading comments left on Trip Advisor and doing something about it.
We arrived by car. which was whipped away immediately for valet parking, and our bags taken by a smiling porter. Check in was swift and easy and the staff all had broad smiles and a welcoming attitude. The porter took us to our room and left without hanging about for a tip, which was refreshing. It did mean that we had no introduction to the TV system, but it only took a few moments to work out.
The room was somewhat over the top, lots of gold and rich dark colours, but we had expected that the hotel would be Ottoman style. The bathroom was spotless and well supplied and everything was working and stayed that way, including the air conditioning. Our only disappointment was the lack of tea/coffee making facilities in the room.
Breakfast in three varieties, including a full English style could be had through room service at an extra charge, or in the Topkapi Restaurant on the top floor, with pleasant views and an outside terrace. The breakfast was buffet style with a wide range of cereals, fruit and nuts, cheeses, meats and breads, fancy and plain. Eggs could be cooked to order, although the ingredients for a normal full English breakfast were not all there.
Unlike previous reviewers we found tea and coffee easily from an obvious self service area or from cruising staff with thermos flasks. The staff were all smiley and friendly and only once went wrong when one walked between me and a tea urn to top it up.
The hotel is slap in the middle of town so it's easy to reach all the local sights and shops.
Checkout was efficient and friendly and our car was waiting for us at the door.
