It was pretty good experience, staff was good especially guest relation department , Nadeem and Ercan , they were presenting us really good gestures towards us. At some point there was some issues but in other hand it was quite good. Location wise this property is very good.

WORSE stay everrrrr The rooms were horribly small With old furniture and rotten smelly carpets Tiny closet You can't possibly move inside such room I had trouble breathing in it! There is no room for your luggage, let alone 4 huge suitcases Your view is the reception desk So besides not being able to see the light or have some fresh air, you'll also be listening to all the phone calls (day and night) because windows are not soundproof So NO SLEEP Some staff emptied the mini bar during my stay and didn't tell us. I called the reception and went downstairs to tell them, and they acted like they didn't know They refused to confirm it and left it to the last day (now that im reading the reviews, they probably do that to charge the room extras, but I found out immediately and stopped them) The shower was the absolute worst part and the most stressful. Showers didn't have glass doors, so imagine wetting the whole bathroom every time Which will make it impossible for you to use it till the next day I had a disgusting wet stay And was provided with a facial towel to dry the floors when complained (which made me go and buy new towels to avoid using their disgusting ones) And they kept doing it for the entire stay. Also, the hair dryer had a long hose that had a cut, so it was heating which made it impossible to touch it, that was only fair cause it was a 100 year old, never have seen a machine from the past before The only good thing about this hotel is the outside of the building and the lobby But there are 1000 hotels around it with the same location and a better price
