Just back from a 5 day stay at this hotel with my family. The price at the time of booking was very low and so I was a bit sceptical of what to expect but the rooms were large, comfortable and the staff were friendly. Most did not speak English but that was not a problem most times.
The breakfast had a lavish display and lots of variety, including some local yummies.
The spa and pool area are quite nice and not busy, kids enjoyed the pool. We were told to buy swimming caps for 10tl each if we wanted to use the pool but when we complained the manager on duty swiftly gave us complimentary caps.
The housekeeping was the only thing that let the hotel down as they did not clean the rooms properly and never dusted or washed mugs from the tea tray. I always had to ask them for tea bags and to take rubbish away and even to remove plates from dinner.
That said the location was excellent, the tram stops right in front of the hotel and takes you straight to the centre. It was always very crowded though and costs 3 TL each way per person so if you are 4 or more just take the cab as that cost us 12TL each way.
