The reviews of this hotel were astounding, so I had high expectations but I am not that critical. At first, we were driven to the hotel by the hotel service. It costs 160 Lira (from Sabiha Airport) or 70 euros. It was excellent and fast (because they drive reckless and fast in Turkey). The staff at the hotel was nice and helpful, a great first impression. We had room 206, a small room with two beds. The room is nice, but the bathroom was too small and not clean. There was mold everywhere and the toilet was too close to the sink. An overweight person wouldn't fit, it was that small. Also, our mini-bar didn't work and was almost room temperature.
The beds were also pretty hard, I like that but some may not.
The breakfast was fine, but there's not a lot of choice and the coco pops were old.
All in all a fine hotel, but the reviews are way too good. This hotel is just normal, please look further because I cannot recommend this place to you.
