Stayed here for 4 nights in July 2010. A real throwback from the 1970's. You would expect a bit more for your $105.00 per night, but at least you do get breakfast included (look for the healthy section at breakfast in the mornings). Room was comfortable although the A/C wasn't much good. Big bonus is the free internet in the room, not the fasted in the world, but not bad at all.
Tried the food in the restaurant on the top floor, and fairly average but takes ages. Same goes for the ground floor. Did want to try the main restaurant one night but they were running late and told me to come back at 8pm.
Location wise, this is spot on. A 5 minute taxi ride from places like AGOCO, and then a decent walk along the corniche opposite the hotel. If you walk out the front door of the hotel and turn right, walk 5 - 10 minutes there is a decent Turkish restaurant.
All in all, I would stay at the Tibesty again. Looks a bit tired, but not bad at all.
