My wife and I booked our stay on the basis of Trip Advisor and other positive reviews. Based on those reviews, the moderate price, and the very positive experience we had at a less expensive place in Istanbul for the previous three nights, we had high expectations in February 2014. Those expectations were not met. Details matter: a bathroom needs all its light bulbs working, its soap dispenser filled, and a bathmat. If your hotel is in a place with cold weather and a room has two beds, please have two extra blankets in the room, not one. If you say you will provide breakfast at 8:00 (a reasonable time, we think), the breakfast guy should not have to be woken up with a rapping at the window from his sofabed in the hotel office at 8:15 by caffeine-deprived guests eager to get to Ephesus. Further, consider providing an in-room kettle like other moderate hotels, so guests may make tea or instant coffee, even if they must buy their own tea or Nescafe (sold everywhere). We must say that the employees, even the sleeping breakfast guy, were friendly and helpful, but the onsite manager was not particularly engaged. We cut short our stay by one night. This hotel might be just fine during the high season, but in February they should have been closed rather than have provided substandard service for very few guests that will do their reputation no good at all.
