This is truly the best run hotel I have ever been to. They do everything that could make your stay and exploration easy and fruitful automatically.
For example when you arrive they sit you down, while our bags are being put your room, offer you a free drink and give you a map which they then guide you through. Their recommendations were very good and made exploring very easy, though we still got lost a few times! You can buy tram tokens, at the normal rate, from reception, which they just add to your bill, which saves you time figuring out the machines. When we had problems with a tour company being late they phoned them on our behalf and sorted it out for us even though the booking had nothing to do with the hotel. They have free tea, coffee and cake at 5pm and the breakfasts were delicilous.
The room provides everything you could ask for and is of a very voluptuous turkish style. Nice touches like robes, a good selection of tea and coffee and a decent size bottle of complimentary water are great and make life easy.
The hotel is just so unbelievably well run, they really do make a huge effort to make you stay as pleasurable as possible. They even had some of their lamp shades expressed to us on our last night from their supplier because we liked them so much and wanted some to take home with us. Really really fantastic hotel.
