We stayed five nights, two nights in room 201 and three nights in the ground floor room.
Firstly, Sofia, Dinar (?), and the other staff are marvelous. So warm and loving. We arrived very early after a 12 hour flight, and I was sick with a bad cold, and they took great care of me, offering tea and giving us a great room overlooking the street even though we were too early to check in. It was exactly what I needed.
The breakfast is the best breakfast we have had after 7 months of travelling, hands down.
The location is in a great area of Sultanamet -- easy walking to everywhere. The only downside is the restaurants can be very aggressive and pushy trying to get you into their place.
We can't recommend this hotel enough. We miss everyone already.
The 2nd floor room was great, the 1st floor room at the back (which we booked, fair enough) was very small. We are two small people with not a lot of luggage but it was very cramped.
