I have no idea why people gave good review to this hotel. Actually it is really difficult to call it “Hotel" it looks more like a guesthouse. I will admit that 1-2 staff was nice and educated however rest of them were terrible. When I first enter to the hotel I was shocked how come this hotel has for stars? Its entrance is so small and makes you feel depressed and insecure. The rooms are average quality, but believe me if room is the only thing you are looking for you can find better places with very very reasonable prices. Anything else you expect beside the room is going to be big disappointment.
I booked a sea view room ,which was advised to me before to stay, due to our arrival was early to istanbul the receptionist told us that the hotel is full and we have to wait till noon unless we gave up previously booked room. Since we were very tired, we gave up our booked room and accept anything that they can gave us (which took 2 hours). And then I realized that the hotel was empty. In this empty hotel it took us to call at least 3-4 times to ask for lacking things such as soap.
A friend of mine came to visit me however the "nice" hotel staff stopped him and said that it was forbidden to visit guests at their room. That was very rude and very primitive "guesthouse" minded behavior. When I ask to the staff they showed an unbelievable rude attitude, and I had to chat outside the hotel with my friend. This is ok for small and amateur places however It is not acceptable if a hotel has 4 stars (I will never understand how come this hotel has those stars).
This hotel is nice guesthouse, however it doesn’t deserve more than 2 stars and ten times overpriced then they reserve.
