This place is a phenomenally lovely little gem. Our room was very large and opulently furnished: jacuzzi tub, fireplace, easy chairs, exceptionally comfortable bed, enormous bathroom, and fresh snacks and a decanter of homemade cherry liqueur left for us daily.
It's hard to describe how prettily decorated and designed the place is; full of antique furniture, decorations, and books. Sparkling clean. The rooms were quite warm, both aesthetically and temperature-wise, despite having few windows (the hotel is built into the hillside, as fits local tradition.)
The breakfast was lavish, with traditional Turkish breakfast items set out beautifully for each guest and cooked item served to order.
The staff were all wonderfully kind and warm, open and eager to chat, but not at all intrusive. The owner was present much of the time we were around and was also very kind and pleasant.
A sumptuously appointed lounge and lovely patio made for pleasant places for conversation with other guests.
The hotel arranges tours and other tourist needs through Argeus travel (located in a just steps away in a lovely office around the corner), which provided us with great value and service, without any hassles.
