Hotel is really beautifull restored, the old palace and certainly the factory where the rooms are. Our room was very nice appointed and had everything we need. The surroundings as well as the poolarea are quite nice as well. Still there are some things which are not ok if you pretend to be an upper class hotel. There was mold on ghe sealings of the bathtub in our rooms. There where quite a lot of tiles missing in the benches of the turkish steam bath. If you go for a swim in the early morning you have to go by reception to get a pool towel (quite a stroll in this hotel) the setup of the breakfast area is not logical and it is too small you have to wait for a table. It is a bit far from the city, and only at the last day we learned from an posted letter near the pool there is a shuttle service, that cod have been told at checking in... All in all, quite a nice stay, but for the money we paid we expect a top notch experience, which it was not in our eyes. If i could get a very nice promotional rate i would go back, all in all it is a nice place to be. But when only rack rates available i would get a hotel closer to or in the city.
