Poor 2,0
Can't handle noise and heat stay away
The room was very not ventilated. It was more than 28 C overnight, the AC ostensibly on high, we couldn't sleep, not talking about the Noise OMG 2 clubs near the hotel and i stayed in the 6th floor and in the 7th floor also was some kind of a Night Club that worked almost till 3-4 AM so if you can't handle noise and heat stay away from this Hotel, about the room, it was clean.

Great price and stay
It's a great place at a great location. I love it and will stay again if I can find a good deal. Only slight issue was that the staff can't clearly speak in English so if you think about questions in advance and can translate them into to Turkish the staff will be more than willing to accommodate or help you to address your questions

Trying to be a 4 star hotel
It was an okay hotel, ruined my first night as they gave me a room with no windows. After continuous discussion with hotel management, they managed to change me to an okay room next day. ROOFTOP TERRACE KIDS UNDER 8 ARE NOT ALLOWED. This is not mentioned anywhere. Swimming pool closes at 5pm
Wasim, gb4 night family trip
Good 6,0
Beautiful building, disappointing hotel
The building is beautiful and perfectly located, but we found the service neither particularly professional nor especially friendly. Importantly, our room was very poorly ventilated. It was more than 26 C / 80 F overnight, even with the AC ostensibly on high, and we both slept really poorly as a result despite calling in a maintenance worker to have a look. WiFi was also very weak: I had planned to enjoy the facilities and work in the morning, but had to relocate to a café because the connection was so unstable. Would love to see better care and stewardship of this historic building, not least for the comfort of its guests.
