My husband and I are discerning travelers and generally look for places with character, but the vibe at this place was just weird. The plusses: it looks cute and almost castle-like from the outside, and the outdoor pool seems newly renovated and is very nice. Based on the other reviews, I'm not sure if we just got a bad room, but our bathroom was filthy. It was as if we had been given the room in which the maids stored all the cleaning supplies, dirty sponges, etc. The glass cup that was provided in the bathroom had a layer of white residue that was disgusting. The bedroom was clean and sparse, but the twin beds (we are a married couple- not sure why we were given twin beds) were like concrete slabs. The kitchen area was mostly clean, but the furniture and amenities all seemed old, rusty, just kind of from another era - an eastern bloc kind of feeling.
The proprietor was friendly, and the breakfast was adequate, but to be frank the woman serving breakfast had such overpowering body odor that it turned my stomach every time she came near the table and ruined the meal. This place is not near the waterfront; it's in a neighborhood about a 10 minute walk from town, but the walk is through the dusty back roads of the neighborhood- not unsafe feeling, just not picturesque.
We were supposed to stay three nights and we had to leave after the first night. There also seemed to be a large family living there that was hanging out on the eating area/outdoor patio all the time kind of dominating the outdoor space. Not sure if that's just a Turkish thing, but it definitely made us feel a little like outsiders infringing on their space. The lobby is like a cluttered old antique shop. We probably could have asked for a room with a cleaner bathroom, or for a different bed, but by that time we were just over it and checked out.
