Oerrated. Dont know what they are trying to do. The room we were showed to stank of cigarette smoke. We waited 20 minutes for them to find an alternative room. And why were they cleaning rooms at 7.00 at night?
The room we were put in, there was a sticky mess on the bedside table, the shower head is the basic Poundland type, the front of house staff dont speak any English, but they charge their rate in US dollars?
The dinner was cold, the menu choices werent all available, the drinks took an age to come and had to be chased.
Over all, it appears that someone is trying to set up a western system prior to being welcomed into the EU, so they can say "Look what we already have" But someone needs to tell them that a 5 star hotel needs more than just a list of facilities. Servive is needed, and its just not there.
Quite frankly, if it werent late and raining, I'd have gone elsewhere. We have had some great hotels in Turkey, but this wasnt one of them.

We knew today was going to be a rainy day, one of the very few we've had so far. The morning was bright and clear. The drive back to sea level was spectacular. It had the feel of some eastern European mountains with steep hills and distant villages dotting the landscape. White minarets could be seen in every direction, signifying some small hamlet way high up on the hillsides. Everything was lush green.The rain was coming. We arrived in the City of Rize mid-afternoon ...
... off the Black Sea Highway at Trabzon, we veered inland 42km to see, as described by Lonely Planet the 'highlight' of the Black Sea Coast, The Sumela Monastery. Slowly plodding our way up the chaotic virtually one car wide access road to the monastery, possibly a Sunday wasn't the best day to go. The place itself was a remarkable bit of architecture but with the crowds at epic proportions it was a let down.
Into Rize early afternoon and whilst seemingly ...
... I will someday leave. I will leave, and for the first time, that thought is truly strange to even consider. 'What a silly idea,' my mind somehow justifies. A passerby I'm not, and that feels good. Am I naive to feel continually amazed and lucky to experience the cross-cultural, multi-dimensional circus that my life has become? The answer to this question is a definite "no," and the day I'm desensitized to it is the day I don't deserve to be ...
This Friday Ryan and I took a day trip to go to Mudanya, a nearby city on the coast of the sea of Marmara. It's been chilly here and people tell me it's much nicer in the summer, but it was good to get out of town and do some more exploring. A student that just graduated the institution we teach at and her friend, who is also an English teacher, acted as our tour guides. We ate some great fish and warmed up with some tea and watched the day go by, nice and relaxed. After we returned ...
... new vocab. We also made from of the British a little bit, as the audio tapes we listen to are all of ridiculous British actors. About 2 hours in, it was obvious that the students were tiring of following the book activities, and I was growing equally bored with them as well. So, I decided to take them on a little field trip down to my favorite cafe. Well, as it turns out, one of the students suggested that we go there before I even mentioned it, much to my delight. ...
