The hotel is really lovely aesthetically and just what we were looking for in a Kaleici hotel. The owner is very kind and looked after us well. She arranged airport transfer for us (which left slightly later than we'd have liked for our departure and we were thus scrambling to the gate) as well as an excellent tour of ancient roman sites.
Pros: Beautifully and tastefully decorated. Nice courtyard with small pool and vegetation. Attentive owner, very comfortable beds, nice modern bathrooms. TVs in the rooms with lots of channels. Excellent breakfast.
Cons: As others have said, the noise is pretty awful but nothing we haven't encountered in several other Turkish hotels. Sounds of conversations on the street as if they were in the room, motorbikes etc. Breakfast starts at 9am which is a bit late. Internet doesn't work (wifi, but none of our devices would connect).
Biggest complaint: On the morning of our tour, the owner said she'd have coffee and breakfast"sandwiches" for us for the journey as it left very early. Coffee wasn't ready before we had to leave, and the "sandwiches" were two pieces of plain brown bread with one small half slice of a tomato and one tiny triangle of cheese. We ended up buying something on the way. If you're planning an early morning excursion, you'll need to get your own breakfast as you won't have an opportunity to eat until lunchtime.
