Recent guest reviews
AC was broken, they did not come to fix although we asked them so. They did not chamge our room either. The restaurants were closed. The crew at the breakfast service were extremely rude to tourists (I know both Turkish and English).
Very nice hotel, with a good location close to the airport. Room was nice and comfortable, amazing breakfast buffet.
I had booked and paid for one night's hotel via oxxx. At check out, the hotel manager insisted that I pay my bill. My luggage was with the bell boy and she refused to release my luggage until I paid up, even though I had my Oxxx invoice at hand, clearing showing that I paid at booking. I was joining a group tour -- and even with the help of the bilingual local tour guide, she insisted she was right. After 30 mins. I paid up so that I could start my vacation. This is after the airport pickup fiasco the night before. I waited at the designated area for 2 hours. Two other hotel vans called the hotel on my behalf. Finally, I borrowed a traveller's phone and spoke to the hotel manager who told me that I had to wait another 30 mins. meanwhile I also tried taking a cab but 1) it was not a cab area 2) cabs refused due to the short distance. Apparently the airport shuttle runs hourly. Either they shuttle missed it's run or didn't stop. Two other hotel shuttles came by twice while I was waiting, but I'm allowed to share them here. . . Overall, an unbelievely painful stay.
