I did not like the checkout warning phone call I received the morning I was supposed to check out, especially since it they called the room about 30 minutes before the official checkout time. When asked if I could have a later checkout (1 hour later), they said No, the hotel was full, which I honestly did not believe. They could have said, "No, but we'll give you an extra 20 minutes for you get get ready." Any decent hotel could easily accommodate a few extra minutes. Also, if they had wanted to remind the guest of the upcoming checkout time, they could have easily done so the night before as a gentle reminder, along with the reminder of the total cost of the stay, so that the guest could have ample time to get cash from the ATM, if necessary. I was not late getting out of my room. I easily had another 5 minutes to spare, but when I came down and exited the elevator in the lobby, the housekeeping guy was standing there waiting for me to turn the key in, as if to tell me, "Hurry up and leave." Did not appreciate that. Again, I was not late. I hate minutes to spare before the actual checkout time of 12:00 noon.
Location is right in the heart of the town center. Easily reachable by dolmuş (minibus) for 1.75 TL from the otogar to the intersection near the hotel (about a 10-minute ride). Lots of restaurants near the hotel. Staff was helpful.
