Great hotel
The hotel was very nice and the staff were very helpful. We really liked the room and the shower was amazing! Very centrally located. It can be a bit loud outside in the evening but quiets down at night.

Euro style hotel with free steam & sauna & hammam! We had deep tissue massage and peel massage as well. The tea offered after are also good. So we bought some from other store. The room is clean, quiet and comfortable. We stayed two nights before we left Turkey. All this hotel offered gave us a happy ending of the trip.

As a full-time traveler, this hotel is one of the
My husband and I are full-time travelers and we have stayed at many, many hotels. This hotel ranks as one of the best! The hotel itself isn’t large or fancy but the service, the amenities and the location can’t be beat. It is within walking distance to the famous mosques and bazaars. There are many restaurants right on the street! We took advantage of the free amenities offered by the hotel…sauna, steam and even the Turkish Bath and pool! The staff go out of their way to make your stay comfortable. I highly recommend this hotel.
