I enjoyed my stay at the Grand Yavuz Hotel. There was especially one staff member who was extremely friendly and helpful. I arrived early and he allowed me to go to breakfast and check in at 8am, then they also allowed me for a late checkout at 2pm. For that alone it is worth staying here. The breakfast was amazing, so many veggies options, all fresh, nothing frozen or fried, and I ended up buying the cheese I tried there. One cons is that they do not allow non-guest - even family members, to come to the room. Location is also top as you can walk to the main tourist sites.

During our stay at the Grand Yavuz hotel with my wife and two sons, we requested an extension for a third night upon check-in. The front desk mentioned they were fully booked but advised us to inquire again on our checkout date for availability. Sadly, on the morning of our departure, they confirmed no rooms were open, so we hurriedly booked another hotel nearby and checked out. However, the following morning, while leaving the second hotel, we discovered that my wife had left her jewelry box in the closet at the Grand Yavuz hotel. It contained gold and diamond jewelry valued at around $4000. We promptly returned to the Grand Yavuz's front desk, but despite checking with room service, the jewelry box couldn't be located. Despite seeking assistance from the tourism police, they couldn't offer immediate help, citing the potential need for up to a week to process a complaint, leaving us in a tight spot as we had a flight back to the US on the same day. We're confident the jewelry box was inside the closet when we completed our check-out. If the room had been cleaned by room service for new guests, the box should have been noticeable. If it wasn't found, either the room service or the subsequent guests might have taken it and misled us when we asked. It's been a highly frustrating experience, compounded by the lack of assistance. The loss of these valuable items has been disheartening.
