10/10 Exceptional

Definitely a good stay at Artefes!
Excellent Value for location and accommodations. Also the staff are super helpful. The morning/day staff spoke English very well, while evening staff were less so but still very energetic to help. The breakfast and upstairs terrace are really good, very surprised at this. The rooms are good value.. The beds are okay, though a small update for the pillows would be much appreciated. Cleanliness very good and again the staff... wow, really found the staff to be awesome.

Excellent stay for cheap travelling couple
We are a couple that prioritizes a clean room and a location close to the action, and this did not disappoint! The staff were incredibly helpful in helping us organize a taxi back to the airport (which was cheaper than the bus they have available) as well as arranging a fun river cruise. Though the lock on the door was wobbly and there was a strange yellow substance around the doorframe in the washroom (it looked liked someone forgot to clean up after the renovations) overall it was perfect for our trip! Breakfast was lovely also, and was served by friendly staff. Different foods were available on different days, and it was so much fun to try different Turkish dishes.
