Warm and welcoming reception. The reception staff are warm and welcoming and are responsive to queries and concerns. Theyn have clean comfortable beds and there's a sense of comfort throughout the hotel. The hotel is close to many restaurants which are opened until very late. You will be able to hear the sound of music. Traditional Turkish breakfast is standard, which consist of mainly some white cheeses, bread and spreads.

The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful. The hotel room was very clean . I wasn’t sure about the location as it looks very old but it’s close to most of the attractions. Also near the hotel there’s a lot of restaurants with live music.it was really fun to have dinner there. Another good thing is the shops in the area don’t close till 1am which is very convenient for tourists who like to have a walk at night and fell safe and find somewhere to eat. Overall for us it was a good experience.
