As seen in previous reviews, the facade and surroundings of this hotel might deceive you when you arrive but wait until you meet the owner. Vural, which is the hotel owner makes all the difference in this property, keeping remodelled and clean rooms. He is always friendly to give you all the important information with a cup of coffee. The rooms also have new air conditioner splitters and complimentary water to keep you cool. Breakfast was included, delicious and enough to keep you up and running at noon.
This neighbourhood is not downtown however buses are available a couple of blocks away. You get used to the suburban feel of the neighbours and with that in mind, we ended up having dinner in a small eatery just a few meters away from the hotel - cheap and delicious.
If good service is what matters instead of a lot of amenities that you don't end up using, this hotel will surprise you.
