Exotic, traditional styling in our room and the public areas. There is a small and lovely pool. Breakfast is fantastic: a Turkish breakfast however, so be prepared for olives, cheese, boiled eggs, cucumbers and tomatoes with traditional simit type breads.
Friendly staff and pretty tame feral cats all over the courtyard. (The cats are everywhere here). Location is close to the touristy old town, and a few minutes from the bustling street life on the Kapalı Yol where great street food can be found in the evenings. There is a small and very nice beach Mermerli Beach a 10 minute walk away (entry is 11TL).
Front desk staff gave pretty much blank stares when I asked where we could find some specialty Turkish food (kazandibi, tavuk gögsülü tatlı, sigara böreği) but we could cope.
I've traveled the world a lot, and i don't like hotels with an anonymous, corporate feel. Considering the combination of cultural experience, ideal location, pleasant comfort, friendliness and value, this is the single best hotel where I've ever stayed.
