Mehmet is one of the rudest hotel managers I've ever encountered. I should have mentioned that I was writing a book about female solo travelers; perhaps he would have behaved more professionally. There was no heat in my room. The first time I notified the staff, I was told that it would come in a few hours. The second time my room was extremely cold, I went to speak to Mehmet's son -- this was after getting drenched with icy cold water, thanks to a leaky shower head (and hot water that didn't appear after about five minutes of having it run). As I explained the issue with heat and hot water, another traveller also told me that she rarely had hot water, and/or it took a significant amount of time to "appear", and that she didn't have heat in her room. Mehmet's son seemed genuinely concerned. He came to my room, waited until the hot water came, and gave me an extra thick blanket (this was quite dusty; a few moths flew out from its folds). However, the next day, when I AGAIN did not have a warm room, Mehmet started whining (literally). Without so much as glancing up from his computer, to give me the acknowledgement that a customer deserves, no matter what he or she asks for, he complained to ME about having a discussion about the heat/hot water issue with my "friend" (who, I suppose, was the fellow traveler who also communicated her experience with poor delivery of heat and hot water. He also told me I had a "problem with everything, the room!" and suggested that I was trying to instigate something (a guest uprising??) by responding to the other traveler's concern about heat. I suppose Mehmet would have preferred if I had ignored her completely, or disregarded the chilly (literally and figuratively) atmosphere of his hotel. Begrudgingly, he gave me a space heater, which warmed my room very well. Why couldn't he have done this in the first place?
