This looked good on the booking site but we were so impressed when we arrived after a stressful journey. Complimentary fruit cocktail and turkish delight as we checked in. Room was cosy, well furnished and comfy bed and peace and quiet added to the luxury.
Very good buffet breakfast, plentiful, fresh , proper table linen and china with well chosen background music for atmosphere that was never invasive.
The reception parrot chats when you pass him by, the cosy luxury reception area is ideal to sit in and take coffee, write postcards, read your book.
Deniz on the recpetion was so helpful, telling us the best way to get anywhere, approx cost of cabs, tram stops etc. He even phoned a shop where we wanted to buy a tv to warn them of our arrival.
All in all this hotel is so good i am already planning the return visit.
Just as we felt it could not get better, when we checked out we were given a small christmas /new years present.
One of the best alternative christmas breaks i have had.
Don't miss this one, its a jewel.
