Reviewed 12 June 2014 via mobile

We were 5 ladies with a double and a triple. The rooms are very small and simple. The staff is friendly and helpful ( sometime too helpful). The location is a little ways from the attractions but nice eateries. I probably would not stay here again however for groups it wasn't bad for the price

Staying in this hotel, is what made me finally appreciate the value of an honest, first-hand review! I have registered on Trip Advisor so I could share my family's (in this case, awful) experiences.

The hotel was terrible. The rooms were smelly and nothing like the (very appealing) online images. The room hadn't been cleaned, in a while. The walls had paint peeling off. A lamp shade was broken and the in-house coffee cups had dried up creamer and coffee stains. The bathroom had broken and dirty fittings and 'stuff' in the shower area hadn't been cleaned out...

Around 6am one morning, we woke up to the smell of something burning. Our room, on the 3rd floor was full of smoke. We immediately called the reception, but no one answered. After 7-8 minutes we got through to someone who said there was a fire in the kitchen, that had been put out. No alarms rang, no safety procedures seemed in place.

After travelling in Turkey for 10 days, the day we arrived in Istanbul we decided to eat in the in-house restaurant. We ordered a vegetarian meze platter. Turkish Food is Delicious! This platter was anything but (Turkish or delicious)... it included a Russian potato salad and some other indeterminable food. Couldn't get past the first bite!

The breakfast is - for lack of a better word - strange! We are an adventurous family who are willing to try anything, at least one! It was unappetising and just plain stale. The best part? Food that appeared on the previous night's meze platter, made a reappearance at the breakfast buffet!

The front desk was very indifferent. If they could actually say they didn't care, I think they would! We asked for transportation advice - and they actually looked confused that we'd ask.

While checking out after 5 long days - we were asked if we enjoyed out stay (I had to laugh) and to please write a review on Trip Advisor. Here's my review. I hope someone (in the hotel's management) reads this review and does something to improve things.

Our worst hotel experience ever!
