    You had to pay to use the facilities, the staff was not helpful, the rooms were small, they did not clean the rooms each morning, just switched the towels and made the bed, it was very noisy and there was no AC

  • Group of friends

    The hotel is a good value for the money. Don't expect anything spectacular. Breakfast was nice. The staff was nice but several miscommunications occurred.

    Do not book anything with the hotel! We booked one small excursion with the hotel, which was to include transportation and the hotel did not deliver on their promise. Secondly, we booked transportation to the airport with the hotel and they did not understand properly so once we got 15 minutes away from the hotel the driver told us the fee was $100 USD!!!! We had to make him take us back to the hotel. Bottom line, if you stay here, come prepared and handle your own excursions and transport!!!!

    The room was clean and ready when we checked in late at night. The bell boy was very helpfull and helped us with our bags.

    Breakfast was very poor and it wasn't upto standard, or at least for what they charge per night. Room service was available but no prices on the menu in the room. No tea making facilities in the room. We were asked to pay for the charges at check in and when we were checking out we were asked to pay more because of a mix up with currency exchange rates with euro-sterling. But the receptionist was very kind and tried his best to fix the problem. We didn't have to pay in the end but you don't want to be dealing with this on your way to the airport..!

  • Older travelers

    Adequate for the price, clean and friendly. Walking distance from tramway, essential for getting around the city.

    2 day lift breakdown

  • Family with children
    3.8

    The lift was very slow, you would rather to use stairs. The spa and swimming pool were closed until 11am, so I never got a chance to use them before I leave the hotel. At the beginning I had a terrible room with no view , then I got my room changed to a better room but was nothing special.

  • Couple
    4.6

    Only price and location.

    We would not recommend this hotel. Cleanliness of the hotel was poor. Furniture and bathroom is old and very poor looking. We could hear the ventilation system in other rooms very loud throughout the night. Breakfast was average with very unfriendly looking staff. One waiter took things from our table before we were finished with our breakfast because it was 10.10 and breakfast is till 10. All in all not a good hotel experience.

  • Single
    5.8

    I was attracted from the price,,,and expecting to be true 3 stars hotel.

    The bath room acessories very old and all the furnitures very old....

  • Family with children
    7.0

    The room was spacious.

    Most of the staff were unable to speak English and therefore unable to be of valued assistance. The location of the hotel meant that we had to trundle our luggage down the street to the corner and hail a taxi or go to the corner, hail a taxi and then ask the taxi to drive the wrong way up the one-way street, back out and enter very busy traffic. The hotel staff could not have cared less about the need for a taxi and waved us off to find out own! Only then did we realize why they were doing so - taxis can't park to collect luggage! Cars are parked bumper to bumper in front of the hotel not allowing people to walk between them and certainly not to take luggage out to a waiting taxi.

  • Single
    3.8

    The window of a room could not be closed, therefore the outdoor noise tremendous, precluding sleeping. The second room was dark and the noise was coming though the window, though closed due to inferior sealing.

  • Couple
    4.2

    Price, located in tiny street even though you still have to walk 4 blocks to get to aksaray tram.

    Staff are careless and somehow rude, especially the front office supervisor, no body speak english really except the bellboy who I find to be a nice guy and spoke some english who actually desereves to work behind the reception instead.the hotel is located in very tiny croweded street it was a little hard to find.if you walk just one block you ll see a lots of prostitutes hanging around.the rooms are small and noisy, also excpect the air conditioner not to work, basically it s just a decor, I tried 2 rooms and never got cold air to blow. There is not much variety in breakfast its below average. The hamam and sauna are not free and are costly, the pool is very small also .Above all this hotel is worth 2 stars maybe less and one can use it just to sleep.

  • Group of friends
    7.4

    Quite good breakfast.

    Uninteresting place close to the neighborhood.
