We stayed at the Turkuaz for 5 nights over New Year's Eve. Pros was the excllent and helpful live-in staff and the location which is close to local foodie places including an excellent local pizza place and lokantasi. Cons are the building is falling apart. Although the sheets and towels were clean and the staff try to keep the building as clean as possible the carpets are ancient, so was the bed and as for the plumbing we had to turn on the hot water 15 mins before showering and sometimes even then there was no hot water (ocassionally there was no water at all, although the staff fixed this when we asked them to). The breakfasts were quite nice and consisted of fresh bread, good black olives, slice tomato and cucumber and a range of jams and eggs. All in all this is probably a reasonable cheapie option if you don't mind roughing it a bit.
