The location is superb (you can see from your window how long is the line at Hage Sofia) but that's it.
We specifically booked a one-bed room; we got two beds joined by a mattress... That, for them, supposedly was one bed.
But the worst is the bathroom facilities. After long cold days of walking around the city, we of course wanted to take a hot shower... and all we could get were 40 seconds of hot water, 50 of mild, 10 of cold as hell, and so forth. When we mentioned this at the front desk, they did not seemed surprised and gave us the magic solution: "call when you're about to take a shower and we will switch the hot water on..." And that's what we did.
Calling EVERY TIME we got 40 seconds of hot boiling water, 30 of hot water and 30 of normal temperature water. But wait, there's more: if the people staying at room next door opened a faucet... forget it. The water will be ice cold for as long as they have the water running.
(BTW: we were quite aware of the actions of our neighbors because the bathroom has no sound isolation whatsoever)
And to top it all, as we were leaving, we looked under the bed to check if we were leaving something and found a pacifier and lots of papers and things... Yes! We got to be archeologists! Would that be there from the times of Constantine I??
