“Do yourself a favour - stay here - not in the old town!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 April 2014

Three of us stayed here in April 2014 and had a fabulous stay. Both our rooms were spacious, light filled, clean, atmospheric, and comfortable. They were cleaned every day and toasty warm with the lovely hydronic heating. You can wAlk down the steep path at the rear of the hotel, straight down into old Safranbolu. Do yourself a favour - don't stay in the old town - the new town is a million times better! It has everything the traveller needs and gives you access to fresh food markets and fabulous local restaurants - all at local (not stupid tourist) prices. The women and kindly gentleman who ran the establishment were a delight. Not a word of English spoken, except by him, so I suggest you download google translate as we did, and you'll get along just fine. Breakfasts were plentiful and good, and the location is excellent. We had a lovely time here and I would highly recommend. As Aussies far from home, we were made to feel very welcome. Stay here - you won't regret it!!

Room Tip: Go to a higher floor - these have great views over the old town.

2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 October 2013

Such a disappointment! The place is like a religious temple rather than a hotel. You feel the heavy Islamic smell and flavor in every detail. They've got stickers on the floor all around the hotel indicating the Mecca direction. All ornaments and other material have religious and Islamic flavor. They make you take your shoes off at the reception hall. Every time you enter and exit the hotel you have to crawl on your knees to take off or put on your shoes. They can't even think of placing a chair to make this tedious job easy for the guests. Some rooms are really spacious and some are just OK. Yet all bathrooms are unusably small, ill equipped and non-hygienic. They don't even have a glass to place your toothbrush or paste in. There're no mirrors in any of the rooms (this may be a religious choice that I'm not aware of). The breakfast is very basic and weak. On the positive side, it looks clean. Although there's a common smell of carpets all around, they seem to keep the place clean at all times. Rates are quite competitive in a place like Safranbolu where hotel rates are unreasonably inflated. All in all, this is an apparently family-run amateur establishment which should not be labeled and categorized as a professional accommodation establishment (one evening when I returned to my room I found my room door unlocked, open, and the key was on the door).
