“Great Stay”
Reviewed March 25, 2008

Stayed two nights in a double room. Great location. Breakfast was very good and had nice variety. Room was very clean. Always someone at the desk and they were friendly. Very good price. Arranged pickup from hotel as promised. Will stay there again.

Found this on trip adviser and i have to say we were very please with this hotel,tradational turkish breakfast which my husband loved being turkish. Set in the heart of the touristical area. Rooms were good size and were very clean which were serviced every day, staff were polite and friendly , my only moan was there was no kettle in the room. But i would go back again very good value for money.

The Hotel Peninsula was the perfect place and a rare find! And we found it on Trip Advisor!

The hotel arranged my pick up from the airport for a great rate and even allowed my friend who was arriving early (at 7:30 am) to check-in upon arrival. Although my flight was delayed 5 hours, the driver waited in the airport the entire time and greeted me with a smile.

When I arrived at the hotel, Huseyin, the owner, gave me a warm welcome and even provided us with a restaurant recommendation (which turned out to be fabulous!). He made sure we woke up at 4:30 am the next morning and sat with us while we waited for our ride back to the airport to head out to Cappadocia. The service truly was remarkable!

The rooms were clean and the breakfast room was quaint. Unfortunately I did not have time to enjoy their breakfast because we had to leave so early. The only thing the may turn some off is the call to prayer at 5 am. But there is always the street side of the hotel where you supposedly can't hear it.

I would absolutely stay at this hotel again and highly recommend it.

  • Liked — The people and the service
  • Disliked — The fact that we were only there 1 night :)
