I stayed in this beautiful hotel for 12 days in July and I was very happy with my stay.
This is an amazing hotel the hotel has a large pool for a hotel in this historical area. The hotel consists of beautifully restored villas around a central courtyard and the pool. The gardens are very well kept and the hotel very well maintained. The housekeeping, maintenance staff and all staff bar and reception work very hard. The ambience is classical but laid back. I have added some photographs to show some of the villas / buildings. The staff are all so helpful and friendly. Special thanks to Ahmet, Furuzan and Haydar on the reception and also to Omer on reception who I spoke to before my arrival and was most helpful.
The rooms and facilities - The hotel rooms are actually very modern in appearance , have comfortable beds and good WI-fi signal (as does the pool area) and air conditioning. I note that other travellers have said the rooms are basic / Travelodge like. I HOWEVER DO NOT AGREE WITH THIS. The room decoration has not been done on a budget, actually the opposite there has been attention to every detail and the furniture is of high quality but modern. My room has 4 plug sockets to recharge mobiles etc(not 1 or2 like most hotels). (There were also charging points around the pool area) There is plenty of wardrobe space, with a rail that lights up when the wardrobe door is opened. There are also plenty of high quality smooth wooden hangers (not hangers attached to the rail or cheap hangers that snag clothes like I have found in other hotels. There are beautiful stainless steel strip lighting on the bathroom mirror, a nice touch etc etc. There is only 1 thing I found unusual, the bed was really comfortable with a really nice cotton bottom sheet but there was no top sheet, instead single quilt covers. That was really not a problem for me, the covers were cotton and should you need a quilt they are in the top of the wardrobe.
The hotel has an amazing location above the harbour (a 5 minute walk). There is a small park opposite the hotel follow the path to the end, turn right and there are several flights of stairs that take you directly to the marine. There are many exits from the old town and depending on which direction you take can be on Ataturk Boulevard / Cumhuriyet Cad / the Clock Tower / KaraaliogluvPark or Hart Jane Gate within 10 minutes. There is so much to do in the areas around the hotel.
In the hotel there is an amazing Spa run by Tamer who is very helpful. The Spa is very reasonable and such good value offering a special package at 25 Euro. The package contains a foam massage, peeling treatment, a face mask and also an oil massage. The perfect way to start your holiday and a good start to your tanning!.The Spa offers many other treatments including Thai massage, hot stone massage, medicimal massage, body treatment a and foot massages all within the hotel.
The hotel has a restaurant where the food is good and reasonable as are the poll bar drinks - freshly squished orange juice is 5TO which is only just over £1 amazing value. The breakfasts are served in the restaurant and are buffet style with cereals, bread, toast, vegetables ,salad, melon, cake, cheeses, soft and hard boiled eggs and meats with tea,coffee, milk, hot chocolate or water.
There is some gym equipment equipment available.
I would definitely return and had a wonderful holiday.
