While we arrived to this hotel we were excited. Nice modern rooms, fast net connection, clean, very "Alps style" inside. Noise of the river which was complained in many reviews was nice, it is nature...
Our window/door outside was rather hard to close but my husband is tall so he could manage.
Real fun came while we were opening/closing bathroom door. It squeaked so loudly corpse would get up...but it was funny in some absurd way. And that is all nice I can say about this facility.
Dinner - we came at 8:30 p.m as receptionist told us it is an opening time due to the Ramadan. It was not true, people were just ending them dinners. Waiter asked us:You want some think? While we replied yes, we would like to have menu we got as an reply that they are out of food and he left. I called him back and asked if he really does not even soup or rice. He said o.k, I will give you rice and soup and he left again. I called him back again and asked if he means really they are out of food. That receptionist told us to come in some time, there is big menu in the rooms so is he really sure there is no food to eat? He asked what I want and while I asked chicken? I got fine in replay and he left. In 3min we got 1 soup, 1 plate of rice and 1 plate of chicken sote on the table!!! It means they had it ready. It was there, he was lying to us. We did not have a will to request 2 portions so we shared and left.
Breakfast - no plates, at 8:15 a.m 1 plate with fries - 5 pcs, some cheeses, no bread and vegetable at all but any way you did not have on what to put the food... No yoghurt what shall be standard. After some search I found bread in plastic back behind the counter so other guests started to take from there too. Same waiter came after few min and asked us if we wants some think else. He did not get my replay that plates would be good but after few min he found out himself. We asked him for yoghurt and he was surprised it is not on the table. So he brought us from the kitchen but just to us he did not give any to the buffet...! If you think he add e.g bread to the baskets or missing food to the buffet plates you are wrong. We drunk just tea but I saw a man he wanted to take juice. There was 6 Cappy 1l boxes but while he tried he got from all 1/2 of the glass. Little bit sad taking to the consideration that breakfast was open like 45min in that moment... Next day it was similar, we did not have courage and will to try it for dinner again. I would like to say I speak fluent Turkish so there was no miss understanding it was just so strange behavior and experience we never have like this around whole Turkey.
