I have to subscribe to everything positive that has been written about this hotel. Nice and clean rooms, spacious bathrooms, well functioning appliances. The corner double rooms are the best choice as they afford more space. What I particularly liked about this hotel is that you have many places to keep your clothes or personal objects in: wardrobe with hangers, bedside tables, desks with many drawers, etc. and everything is clean and dust free. The staff is generally friendly and forthcoming.
However, there are a few shortcomings that can be 'disastuous' in the eyes of a fussy person...the breakfast menu is the same every day and I guess they change it once in a blue moon because this is the third time I've come here and nothing has changed in this respect, although it is variety that I lament not lack of quality (the beakfast itself is quite tasty). I noticed that some reviewers complained also about dinner; there is nothing wrong with it except that there is a limited number of food types you can choose from, but considering the price it is quite convenient. However, unless one has half board, there is no reason why they should eat dinner at the hotel when they can go out and try a different restaurant every evening or go to one of the nearby coffee bars on the beach which serve good food at reasonable prices.
The location of the hotel is a very good one for someone who wants to have a sound sleep at night or noon far from the noise of the street. The beach is only 5 minutes away and in front of the hotel there is also a park with workout equipments if you want to stay fit or to take your kids out to play. The bus station is at 3 minutes walking distance and in case you want to come back after 10p.m. when the buses don't run anymore you can always take a cab and it won't cost you too much (for example, 20-25 Turkish liras from the city's historical centre Kaleici).
