What they consider air conditioning is ridiculous. The room was so hot with the windows closed that we preferred opening the balcony to listen to the noises of the tram and the people three stories below us, rather than cooking alive. The automatic flushing toilet was annoying. I mastered courtesy flushing on demand by the end of our first night. I was very grateful for the giant fan that was provided after the maintenance man told me that the a/c was working. The LCD television was tiny, which makes sense in a small room. Only three channels were in English the others (about 100) were in Turkish, Arabic, and other tongues. Just about every channel had a person dancing, singing or doing the News. Thankfully we spent little time in the room. The women working at the hotel were wonderful, especially Naz. The men were useless, barely paying attention when being addressed to. They were always on the Internet looking bored to death and annoyed that we had bothered to disturb them.
