TravelPod Member ReviewsZeugma Hotel Istanbul
This 3 story hotel offered character and a very quaint space. I absolutely loved the antique feel. There were beautiful hardwood floors and collectors style furniture. In the bathroom was beautiful marble finished tile. The hotel had winding, marble stairs that went to the 3rd floor and the office staff was very accommodating. My only complaints (which are minimal) are the fact that there was no elevator and the automatic lighting system employed there. The lack of having an elevator was not a problem for but definitely would have been for an individual who has maybe knee or hip problems. Good value for the price.
