You have to be aware, as we were, that not all rooms are in the main building. However, we did not expect a 5 minute walk from reception and to shown in to a pokey little room with ill-fitting furniture that seemed to be nothing more than the second bedroom in a half-forgotton 2-bedroom apartment! My fiance pretty much burst into tears and I was quite ready to have a major sense of humour failure. Back at reception they very quickly and politely re-allocated us to a room in keeping with expectations and although we had to pay another 125 Euros to get the room that I'm pretty certain we were entitled to in the first place, I was persuaded by Madam to let it go. However, on at least three further occasions during the week we were there, we saw new arrivals being taken off in the direction of "that room" and a little while later return to reception looking thouroughly disgruntled. So, you have been warned.
However, having got over that particular upset, we found ourselves in a really very nice clean and spacious room (althoough we very quickly gave up on the idea of getting the jacuzzi to work), right next door to the main hotel, overlooking a pleasent square, in an excellent central location within Kaleici, which turned out to be an ideal base for our week there. I would probably rate Alp Pasa as "Very Good", except for the fact that after the first 10 minutes there it was within a whisper of being a holiday-ruining disaster, that I suspect that I'm not the only one to have had that experience and it is something that the hotel management simply shouldn't allow to happen.
