I only stayed there for one night. I was not satisfied in general. Of course, it had its advantages and disadvantages. The lady who accepted us was a very nice person. I really thank her. Advantages: clean and good bathroom and toilet, excellent location, hot water, near to public transportation. Disadvantages: old building, cold room temperature.

I booked the hotel from 27.01.2023 to 04.02.2023. Our check-in time was very fast, 5 minutes, and we don't have any problems during the check-in. The location is great. You can access Istiklal street right away. The other good point for the hotel is the elevator. During our stay, it worked perfectly fine. But, it was really cold in the rooms and bathroom. In the bathroom there wasn't any equipment for making the bathroom warm. So, during the night it was useless as it was really cold.
