I used this hotel as an en-route stop over prior to catching a flight the next day from Istanbul. Because the morning flight was not too early this hotel was just the right distance from the airport for a leisurely drive in rather than have to cope with the hustle and bustle of the busy city of Istanbul. It was a good choice.
Plenty of parking and straight on to the main highway this is a good location for travellers. It is unpretencious and a bit tired in its style but the staff and managment are welcoming and go out of their way to make you feel at home here.
This is not a luxury hotel. Please judge this on your experience and the fact that it costs just £25 a night by UK prices and is so close to Istanbul. You might struggle to find this standard near the big city at these prices. The rooms are large but not as modern as you might find in some of the newer hotels. The decor is dated by modern standards but this will not stop you from getting a good nights sleep. Everything is clean enough.
The evening meal was very good. I was not too hungry so settled for some aperatif and had more of a snack than a meal which was tasty and more than adequate for my needs. They had an entertainer in the restaurant who sang Turkish songs with a good voice and with a passion. He was very good. Prices in the restaurant are quite reasonable for a hotel too.
Breakfast was perfect and I left the hotel at around 9 am in the morning. I cannot really fault this place and I would certainly use it again. I have no idea what it is like in peak season when the pool is open and the hotel is full. I would imagine the atmosphere could be quiet nice. My stay was in December at one of the quietest times of the year.
