My girlfriend and I stayed here for 3 days at a rate of about $150/night. At that price it was decent but not a good deal by any stretch of the imagination. Nice enough people at the front desk, but English is not very strong (of course, it was better than my Turkish, so I shouldn't complain!). They have "spa" facilities on the first floor that are free to guests if you make a reservation. Basically, they have a sauna, shower, and small hammam. They offer massage, etc. for a fee and maybe if you pay for these expensive services they pay attention to you, otherwise the woman that staffed the desk couldn't be bothered to look up from her newspaper. Her English was limited to a dismissive "go there, go there" and a wave of the hand when we asked how to use the facilities (do we change there? what do we change into? is the sauna unisex or coed? exactly what do you do in the hammam?). She couldn't be made to engage us in any kind of exchange; we tried to figure it out on our own and then just left. Very frustrating. they give you a free bottle of water on arrival. Don't expect anything after that. Breakfast is fine. The "bistro" on the terrace doesn't serve food...
All in all, a decent room (VERY comfortable bed) in an okay location, but nothing special.
