22 March 2014 Marko would recommend this property

Liked: Great location for exploring old part of the city, about 10 min away from nearest tram stop T1. Although we arrived before official check in, the room was ready and we were allowed in. Staff at the reception desk was friendly and helpful, provided us a map and a few tips. Private room is small, fine and pretty clean, except a little dust. Towels were replaced after two days. Bed is comfortable and nights are quiet. The neighborhood is full of restaurants and nargila bars, souvenir shops, there are some markets which are open till midnight. Breakfast had a very nice choice of food, still, tomato and cucumber seemed like they were from the day before. Pieces of halvah were tasty and a nice surprise. Common room is quite small, but the terrace must be great when the weather is fine, which we didn’t have, unfortunately. We stayed here in the cold, rainy days and the room was warm enough after we asked staff to check our central heating. Don’t hesitate to ask anything you need, guys are ok and pleasant.

Disliked: It would be useful if there was a chair or some more hangers/shelves. Women serving the breakfast didn’t speak English which caused confusion sometimes. Also, don’t expect much of free coffee, and instead ask for turk kahvesi which cost 5TL.
