First the plusses- Compared to hotel rooms in the old city, the rooms were large - plenty of room to deal with suitcases. There was a tub, not just a shower, in the bathroom. Beds were comfortable, room was very clean. Our room was very quiet, except for the usual guest noises. The staff were courteous. The location was very close to a tram stop, but a long walking distance from the old town grand bazaar. There is a local bazaar across the street on Fridays.
Now the minuses- breakfast buffet was okay, but large tour groups took over the dining area, and one morning they weren't able to keep up with demand and ran out of many items. The worst thing was that the air conditioning in our room went off after the first day, and when we requested that it be fixed, we were told that they don't turn it on until June! Our second night was the room was very warm and sleeping made difficult because there was only a duvet quilt (no top sheet) on the bed. I took a point off my rating for this.
