They gave us a clean and spacious, 2 bedroom hotel apartment that had a very comfortable, homey feel. Mr Cem owns the place while the rest of his family... More

The manager is from Turkistan, and speaks six languages. He was extremely helpful and solicitous of our needs. Went way out of his way to make sure... More

We spent a few days in Iznik during our Turkey tour. The location is great with a lake view. On our way there, we had gotten lost. We called him from a store and he drove over to pick us up! The bathroom was small. However, it served us fine.

If you want to stay in Iznik with lake view this is the hotel you have to choose. Renovated rooms (also new bathrooms now with real showers :-) ). Best of all: incredible friendly staff, even they dont speak english at all. Great breakfast!
