The hotel itself is older but very nice. The rooms are large and comfortable. The tub in room 401 is very high off the ground and challenging to get into, but it works well and is clean.There are a few places where they need some paint or wall paper repair, but over all it is well kept. There is no elevator, but the staff is very willing to help you with your bags. The fridge is kept stocked with free beverages.
The breakfast buffet they have every morning is well stocked. It has several bread items, fruits, some cheese, some meat, and many more local items that I'm not sure what they were. There was a cookie my wife loved. They would also custom cook eggs for you and they made fresh squeezed orange juice.
The staff is the best asset of the hotel. We had trouble getting our bags from the airline and had difficultly finding where they were due to our lack of Turkish skills. Alper, the manager, got on the phone and was able to track them down. His associate, Taner, also went out of his way with our requests for reservations and directions. At the end of my week long stay, there were no unexpected financial surprises. Everything was as quoted.
If you're looking for Four Seasons plushness, look elsewhere. If you are looking for a small, boutique place which has large rooms, is clean and has the most personal service, in a great location, this is the place for you!
