Well, not literally...but i take strong exception to the preceding review titled to the contrary.
In our assessment (my wife, and two daughters, 5 and 2), the property represents a very homely atmosphere-something what you experience in say Florence's small homely properties.
Kaleiçi, the old town was a chance last minute choice for the hotel but we are glad we stayed there (as opposed to the beach which was cold, no COLD). Strolling through the stone-cobbled streets and observing the roadside cafes, we get to Clock Tower in under 10 mins. Clock Tower, mind you is the center of all activity per se insofar as Kaleiçi is concerned-shopping, eating, visiting nearby historical mosques etc.
The hotel is a 5 min stroll to the marina (do catch the sunset there). So in short, very central location.
The staff was extremely courteous and helpful. Served with a smile and even the managers do not hesitate to help you with your luggage! The dinner buffet for 30 TL was a steal (loved the wide assortment of salads).
Thank you Onur, Inan, Khalid, Adam and Chef Hussain for all your hospitality.
The rooms are a bit small but that I suppose is consistent with how most European hotel rooms are (say in Paris?). The pool was closed when we arrived but was turned on the 1st of April (check that smirk). Children's pool is a plus.
Complimentary Wifi was suitably fast for viber voice calls in our room across the pool on the first floor.
Just one suggestion for the management: Breakfast seems to be missing packaged frozen yogurts and fresh seasonal fruits.
Thank you for a great stay.
