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.

... language barriers, a mixture of a social setting, summer and alcohol provided enough social lubrication. It was truly fascinating and enjoyable speaking to young Turkish people and discussing the ways in which we live, grow up etc. It was interesting to hear how many faced similar and somewhat restricted expectations from parents regarding jobs, marriage etc. and comparing that to Australian youth who go out, slut about, abort foetuses willy-nilly, ...
... compete with smart cars for right-of-way, but they are changing swiftly.
By geography Turkey walks the most delicate of lines, sharing borders with Bulgaria, Georgia, Iran, Iraq and Syria. Sectarian strife, genocide and religious fundamentalism haunt this region until today. Turkey is certainly not innocent of her own history (the Armenian genocide) but strikes a familiar balance of nationalism amongst religious identity ...
... visit uncovered the opposing viewpoint. What we thought was going to be a typical meeting with an NGO, turned into a culture clash for all three-student groups.
After a brief introduction on their organization, the members of the DEM opened up the floor to questions from students and professors. The questions that were brought up touched on a variety of hot political topics such as ...
... z niewielka pomoca kolejki, zarowno satysfkacja jak i zmeczenie byly ogromne. :)
Tak przy okazji - to czy korzysta sie z platnych srodkow transportu czy z autostopu/marszu wcale nie decyduje ile monet zniknie z kieszeni. Co z tego jak wydam 2lira na kolej ktora w pol godziny zabierze mnie z centrum na obrzeza miasta jak te same dwa liry strace na worek winogron u ulicznego handlarza, ktore dla zmeczonego piechura wygladaja podwojnie zachecajaco?

... the riot police were near us. (Really, riot police were there, with helmets, batons and big shields. I didn't think our reputation was all that bad!) The Turkish crowd seemed filled with a lot of young lads, female footballers and fans. They penned us in very quickly, with a group of what sounded and looked like big supporters of the game behind us, and a group of young lads who wanted to talk to us and share their sunflower seeds with us - they were very giggly throughout the first ...
