We booked a 1 night stay before going on the kinalada island. We arrived at 3am after our flight was delayed. The room we order online for 4 adults was meant for a double bed only. The really nice guy at the reception gave us a family room seeing how exhausted we were. The family room had a double bed + a single bed and a baby bed. We slept at 3 in the double. Our 4 years old in the baby bed completely squeeze in it and teen in the single bed. Room was clean but old. we didnt have any water in the morning. We were about to catch a Boat so it wasn't an issue. BUT, when we went to check out, the lady at the reception told us the room was free, they offer us the night. I made them repeat in English and my husband confirm with them in Turkish. We felt it was a really nice gesture and felt lucky for the experience. We left feeling this hotel wasn't the best place but service and customer service were really good. We found out 2 days later that they in fact debit our credit card.... They made us think it was free to charge us after hand. So so disappointed. No need to say anything if you know it will be charge no matter what. The feeling is worst!

Hotel is decent. If you don't need luxury, this place might be for you. Decent rooms, but definitely need renovation. Rooms are very clean. Stuff was making our rooms every day. Breakfast was tasty, enough to be full. Hotels stuff is very friendly. Hotel is close to Taksim and Kabataş. (Mind hills) Unfortunately, there is a club on the rooftop. Every night party won't allow you to sleep until 1:30 at night. The building is shaking literally cuz of loud music. Our stay wasn't such bad, but we came back home tired cuz of lack of sleep. The every morning view from the window quenched our nighttime frustration.
