“You're only a Wallet to them”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 January 2014

My first ever accommodation comment was inspired by the front desk woman who just should not be in anything related to the hospitality business.
Upon checkin, they had not honored my reservation that the other front desk person, Salih, had happily taken 3 days before for New Years Eve. This was 3 days after i had been shown the place by Salih, and all the possibilities for New Years Eve stay were worked out.
The woman simply looked at her room sheet and told me with no concern at all, "We're Full". no sorry or an inkling of becoming surprisingly homeless a person might feel, much less on New Years. Only insisting on the subject got her to call the owner and eventually Salih. Of course this was a futile waste of time that got the same response, "We're Full".
Further resistance to this finally generated an option that actually seemed to work out at first in their Pension down the street. A beautiful room, nice and warm, saved my evening from being a total, overbooked hunting around on crutches (Broken Leg which obviously meant Nothing to her) disaster.
Complete with Wifi (so i could still connect with world wide friends) they were completely confused about the real passcode (more running around) and no connection till late the next morning. Coming to the most rudimentary breakfast (Chose to pay and loin friends at "Naya") i was informed rigidly the 13:00 checkout. Any attempt to get an extra hour, especially with all that had happened, was met with a "what are you kidding? attitude of 'No". So i shared curtly with them what i'm sharing with you here, and compared them to Eskibag Hotel, (their Neighbor who gives exemplary service) to her uncaring disinterest. This was the last straw for me to write this review.
To be clear, the boys and men (not in charge) were helpful with my situation but ultimately were subservient to this woman who was either prejudice against non Turkish guests or just me, or really has no idea of what Hospitality is.

Note: Eskibag Butik Hotel is a more beautiful neighbor i mentioned for only slightly more lira. In all respects, they are exemplary of Hospitality.

Room Tip: Go anywhere else. Eskibag, right around the corner (easy signage)

I bought a Groupon for this hotel because I just wanted a cheap weekend getaway, and this was the cheapest one. I guess I got what I paid for. They said they only had basement rooms left (so I guess they did warn me), but I did not realize that that meant that I would be woken up at 7:30 each morning by a heavy-footed woman in heels in the lobby above who seemed determined to wake the basement dwellers up by her pacing, slamming doors, walking up and down the stairs, and dropping items on the floor. I was also occasionally awoken by the horses that pass by outside, but I did not mind that. I was about to go to bed early on Saturday night, but the live music above went from about 8:30-10:30. Luckily the music was not that bad, but definitely unavoidable in the basement. The room itself was unimpressive with paint chipping off the walls, only one tiny window, only one light that did not reach all areas of the room because of its strange shape, and mold on the bathroom ceiling. There is also a horrible smell of sewage when walking down to the basement. The positives of this place are the low price, good water pressure in the shower, and very convenient location to both the ferry and the center of town. Maybe rooms on upper floors are better...

Room Tip: Avoid basement rooms at all costs - too noisy, smelly, and dark.
