I read the reviews of this hotel and they couldn't be more wrong!!!
The front desk staff was wonderful and the location is great, that is where the good things about this hotel end. The breakfast was good as well.
My room: 104, smelled of the bathroom drain. I think this room my have formerly been a janitors closet. I complained about the smell, but there was a Marble Convention in town and no rooms to be had, anywhere. I was stuck. They offered to put something in the drain, which helped very little. The bed was about 50 years old and the stains on the mattress confirm it. The pillows were hard as cement and my room was over and next to a disco. The loud music started at 5pm and continued until at least 2am. Plus there was some sort of work going on during the day and the noise was everywhere. I could even hear the noise from the lobby.
There was NO hot water my 2 days stay and the view was of the fire escape and a wall.
Even as a budget travel place, which $75+ it was NOT worth it. I wouldn't recommend this place, even for budget travelers/backpackers.

... my Euros and tell him we have 70 Euros. NO MORE. He said he had to have 100 Euros. I wasn't lying. I only had 70 Euro on me but I had 100 Lira and he knew I had Lira cuz he had overheard me earlier so he asked how much Lira I had. I bluffed and said 50 Lira. He kept asking and I refused to budge. I told him 70 Euro and 50 Lira or we leave. He finally sold the jacket to us at that price. I'm proud of myself for that now that I think about it. Kamie walked out ...
We headed to a prearranged lunch at a carpet factory. The food was included in the tour price but not the drinks. The food was amazing! We started with salads, dips and breads which were all tasty. The main meal was more salads with bbq chicken and beef kebabs. It was all tasty. We then went to watch the carpet demonstration. We all found it fascinating even though none of us bought any of the beautiful carpets. There was not ...
... delays?). The country side is very nice and there are farms where they grow all sorts of fruits and vegetables (I believe Turkey exports much of the food grow).
Izmir is a large city of over 2 million people. Even though the train station was close to our hotel it took us a little while to find it through the maze of streets as it was in Izmir's bazaar district. We took a wrong turn or two while trying ...
... the circuits on this level will not accommodate the chargers for my laptop and camera battery... and considering I have to charge both of them nightly (nothing seems to hold charge for very long) this poses a problem. The hotel guys really wanted to find a solution so I'm going to charge them at reception - the camera overnight and the computer during the day (I have a Kensington lock ...
My tour guide was a young man nicknamed Nuri and my driver was Mr. Solomon. They were wonderful.
They picked me up at the airport and took me first to the house that it is said Mary, mother of Jesus, lived in at her death. The Catholics have turned it into a shrine, building a church on the uncovered foundation. A service is held in the courtyard on Sundays. They have faucets outside the house that come from a spring on ...
