Reviewed 28 October 2011

This was a very nice, modern hotel. Rooms were updated and clean. Good selection for the breakfast buffet. Nice neighborhood close to most landmarks. Little difficult to find when we first arrived but a nice base to explore the city.

We stayed in Sept 2011. Our expectations werent high so it proved to be a reasonably Ok hotel,

The positives: Clean rooms, near tram line, not too far from Grand Bazaar [20 min walk]

The Challenges: Hard beds, thin walls and average breakfasts.

Notes: You will be woken up by call to prayers passing trucks and or any street level noise.
Walking distance to Tram mean you have access to ALL the major old city attractions
As you leave the hotel lobby, turn right and right again you will come across a number of local fast food kebap shops.

Dull hotel with dull staff ! Most Turkisch people are very friendly but in Hotel Vicenza there is a very high concentration of unfriendly staff-personnel . The first day we get a free meal because we were staying longer than 3 days but we get the most awful disgusting meal we ever had in Turky . Rooms were moderate

We booked a suite, what we got was a small room with one small double bed and one single. We are a family of 4! The breakfast and coffee is terrible!! The swimming pool was to small and crowded. The restuarant was nice and the kids really enjoyed the pizza's. Will we stay there again - I don't think so!

The only selling point for this hotel is the rooftop pool, which provides a nice relaxing break from the craziness of the bazaar and the city. The rooms were small and pokey with very drab decor and although breakfast is included it's pretty awful and full of tour groups. It seems to have all the amenities - at an extra cost - and the staff are not very helpful. Go here for the good location, 15 minute walk to the Grand Bazaar, and the rooftop pool...but not really anything else! Also the noise is a huge problem - a bar on the adjacent road has really bad live singing most nights till 12pm - not for the faint hearted!

Hotel Service was good as we had no difficulties checking into our room. In addition, the front desk was able to provide answers to every question we had. Room service always ensured rooms were clean.
Our room was well positioned and clean with modern furnishments. Room amenities were nice including a comfortable queen sized bed, fast WiFi, and TV. Our Air Conditioner seemed to experience problems during the night which wasnt an issue most of the nights we stayed and the widow door hinge seemed to be broken. Walls tended to be thin so I heard much activity which was occuring in adjacent rooms, no big deal however.
Location was ok- we were located about a 5 minute walk away from the main street and the Tram Station. There is always live music in your room at night due to the thin walls and multiple dining facilities immediately outside the hotel that feature live music. This didn't keep me up however as I slept soundly.
Summary:
+ Good Hotel Service, Modern Rooms
-Thin walls

Although the hotel does not have a sufficient number of non-smoking rooms and is not good for a light sleeper because the walls are thin and music from bands in cafes outside is very loud, I found the staff to be very polite and, in one case, exceptionally kind. When a member of our tour group became sick, a hotel employee walked him to a nearby health facility and spent half the day there translating and making sure he received good care. She even refused to take the tip she was offered for her helpfulness.

Room Tip: Ask for a nonsmoking room away from the street
