Buyukada itself is a great place to have vacation, and the location of the hotel is fantastic, 10 mins walk to the pier, the restaurants, the local markets etc. and the private beach, so basically the location is very central. The staff is quite friendly, in fact it is a family run hotel, so basically they are the owners. The breakfast is fine. The hotel building itself is a historical one and very nice, although it is quite old. Famous Turkish TV series was filmed there.
However, there number of disadvantages. The bathroom is shared with other 3 rooms on the floor and need renovation. Sometimes toilet paper and the soap is missing, the lighting inside is bad, if you take bath in the evening.
The cleaning services are not provided and the towels are only changed at request.
Overall the price they charge is too expensive for this hotel
