On arrival, we were shown to our small room & spent one night in it before requesting another one. Hurray, it was much bigger & solved the problem of space. However, the call to prayer is very loud & we did not have earplugs - so be warned.
Nevertheless, the new room was great. Apart from the tiny bathroom, where you need to sit side saddle on the toilet (I am not a big person either). The hotel also provides a list of 'RULES', I don't know who they have staying there, but we saw mostly mid-aged folk.
Having said all the negative stuff first, now for the good points. It has a beautiful garden, delicious breakfast & lots of Turkish style about the place. I took photos of the garden, it was so pretty.
Choose a room downstairs to lessen the noise, request a bigger room if there are 2 of you. The staff are very helpful & will make calls for you & give good advice.
For evening meals, go to Bella Hotel around the corner. The food is tasty, cheap & its close by. And they are the nicest Turkish people.
