The location is the key to choosing this hotel. In the heart of Nisantasi, you are close to everything that matters. The hotel is very good in terms of reception and room cleanliness and design. Staff were excellent - very helpful and courteous. I arrived a few hours earlier than my check-in time and they gladly and politely gave me the room, which is something I really appreciate. They also gave me a grace period of one hour upon check-out. The room design is very comfortable and eye-friendly. I got a big room with a walk-in closet, big bathroom and big main bedroom with a sofa chair. The bed was very comfortable. The downside is that there was no window in the room, but that did not really bother me given the larger size of the room. Another downside of the hotel is that the rooms are not sound-proof so you hear noises from the rooms next door and from the corridor. The air-conditioning system was also deactivated as it was winter, but it could get warm sometimes and so a fan was provided to cool the weather in the room. The fan was noisy so I had it shut most of the time, and it did get uncomfortable sometimes when I had to choose if I should sleep with fan noise or to sleep felling hot. Their breakfast is not recommended - it is very basic and not tasty at all. Cafes next door to the hotel offer so many better breakfast options. I enjoyed my stay there overall. Mainly, staff were excellent, helpful and made my stay wonderful despite some of the negatives of the hotel.
