    Morning reception wasnt really nice to deal with. They dont have late check out. Has some of weird rules. Breakfast was in basement as well not really good. It could be better than that. They have bus shttule service and cost 5 Euro per person. I wouldnt recommand to use it if you are 3 person and above as it is not a private shuttle. It keep on stopping in many hotles and in hot weather it is not comfortable. Private big car would cost you 20 euro(150 TR) to ataturk airport from the hotel and they are very near to book them.

    Family room was very nice. Clean. It looks like it has been newly built in 2017. Big enough for 2 adult and 2 kids. The value for money looks worhty for ONLY family room. Single rooms my wife saw it and said it is not clean and not recommanded at all.The location near to gulihana park and in the hear of old city. Grand pazar just 5 min walks.

    The room and the bathroom are small, but you have all you need. The hair dryer works about 10 seconds, then it stops and you have to wait for 10 minutes, then works again 10 seconds and so on. We received only one key for three persons.

    Good location, helpful staff, clean room. The airport shuttle well organized, they answered to our request, costs 30 euro, For return they helped us to book the shuttle, it has a fixed schedule, it costs 15 eur

    A 50% deposit was taken off our credit card before we arrived at the hotel, and after a 3 night stay had still not been refunded, even though we paid the full amount for accommodation on check-in. No kettle or cups provided for making tea/coffee in room.

    We enjoyed the slightly more spacious accommodation in Room 604. The beds were firm, but comfortable. The air-conditioning was perfectly positioned as it didn't blow onto the beds. The breakfast had enough variety to suit everyone's taste.

    When I went in the hotel room at the beginning, I found that the shower was broken, and WiFi not functioning. I was disappointed at the begining, yet when I told them about this, wow, a guy came immediately even though it was quite late in the night. And the Wifi, it was the first time I saw a hotel being able to solve this kind of issue, I was able to use without problem. Then I realized that other than that, the rooms are clean, breakfast is moderately OK compared to the price. Recomended.
