Poca limpieza, debajo de la cama estaba demasiado sucio. La regadera (shower) estaba rota por un lado y no se podía sostener, nosotros la teníamos que sostener.

I stayed in this hotel in July 2019 and Picked up the same hotel with intention they will treat us the same way as before. The room initially they offered vs what we have booked was not good at all, we had to pay extra to get the room we were looking for. Most of the staff were helpful other than one of the member which were pretty rude. The breakfast is not very good option as they say free breakfast but they charge extra for everything if you need coffee, water or Omelet. I stayed 10 days in hotel but after this year experience I will never stay in this hotel.

I was offered Turkish coffee on the house by the staff. Night before I checked out I asked the staff of there was any bill outstanding. They confirmed everything was paid off. Next day when I was checking out in the morning I was told I have to pay the bill for the coffees and they made me pay. Secondly I wanted to book a cab through the hotel for the airport and I was happy to pay by my debit card as I was little short of Turkish lira. They denied they cannot except card payment for the cab as they have to pay them in cash. They realised I had British pounds on me. They made me pay in pounds for the cab. I only wanted a small taxi for myself and they booked me a 10 seater bus for my pounds. I am disappointed with the greedy staff. Hotel room was nice and clean but the staff was terrible towards the end of the trip.

False Advertisement
Checked in to our first room And it was so tiny compared to what they show online which I think is false advertisement.. the bathroom door just about closed when you go in. The AC was leaking so asked to move to another room and they moved me and my wife in to a room with 2 single beds I told them this is not acceptable we need a queen size bed as described on your website they told me I would have to pay extra as they only have the elegance room available. Why should I have to pay extra if my room has a leak! So I refused to pay but got told I can move in to the room after arguing for about 15mins once moved in to the elegance room it absolutely STUNK! the workers were even embarrassed at this stage we were so tired and have moved from first floor to second floor then from second floor to the elegance room that room stunk we had to move back to the second floor and me and my wife had to sleep on two single beds. Then we asked for an iron they gave it and told us we don’t have a stand we can iron on the bed the iron they gave was damaged and cracked and the heat control dial was stuck on high while ironing it burned my clothes and slightly the bed and I got told by the manager I would get charged For the burn marks also that ironing in the hotel is prohibited and we are not allowed to use iron even though the workers are the ones who gave us the iron. Lastly mini bars as always should be charged but water should atleast should be complimentary in such a hot country but nope.
