On the surface, this hotel looks great; it's in a good location (within a 5 minute walk to all the main sights), it looks 'boutique' and it looks pretty new. However, there are many things wrong with it. First of all, the room is absolutely tiny for the price (I've stayed in other hotels literally around the corner so can compare). Not only is it small, but it's badly designed, so you can't open the wardrobe door without a lot of moving around. The bathroom was the same, and not helped by the fact that the shower leaked so we had to cover the floor in towels. Although the hotel is clearly quite new, there was already mould on the wall of our room. There was also not a lot of variety for breakfast, considering what we paid. There were a lot of minor things that made this hotel less comfortable than others - such as no instructions on how to use the safe and the TV channels all being in Turkish. I would not recommend this hotel to others.
