i stay this hotel several time .my every experience is beautiful great foods and location amazing.staff very friendly and helpfull . you ca feel history in this hotel and that place kaleiçi...i recomand this hotel
We visited for 11 nights in early September and had the best time. We stayed at this hotel last year with friends and we were so impressed we had to come back!
Location really is impeccable and the surroundings to the hotel are beautiful.
We had a very large bedroom, bathroom and living/kitchen area. As noted on another review there are no kettles or cups in the room which is a little strange, however their are loads of places locally that you can get a coffee from.
All of the members of staff that we had dealings with were fantastic and we felt truly welcomed.
Gazetta which is the restaurant attached is a an absolute must with an extensive menu, fantastic quality food at very good prices. There are also numerous places to eat all within a very short walking distance. It really is in the heart of all the action.
Would highly recommend and will definitely return in the future.
We visited for 10 nights and are just back. The hotel comprises three main sections: the old pretty bit with small pool; La Gazetta restaurant across the narrow pedestrianised street with indoor and outdoor tables (on the street and in an inner courtyard); and modern / old fashioned rooms seconds away down the side street opposite, with their own pool and a decent sunbathing area. Our two rooms (Petunya and Mimosa opposite each other) on the second floor of the modern Karden Suites block were brand new / feeling, spacious and with good air conditioning in the sitting room and bedroom, and a damn good mattress. My only gripe with the rooms is that there were no tea and coffee making facilities, although on our penultimate day we were advised by some other guests they'd been able to buy a kettle kit from the hotel for a small fee. I should also add they'll give you a second room key if asked.
The other three couples we talked to all complained that their rooms were either too small or had inadequate air-conditioning which made sleeping uncomfortable and difficult. There is also no internet connection beyond the main lobby.
We booked half board. Breakfast is just passable, if you like processed meat, chips, stale bread (which needs to be kept in a plastic tub / bag), very runny preserves and cheap coffee; and the tea and omelettes are ok. Dinner is a joke of salad / inedible beef, chicken or fish and a pudding we didn't get to the first night or subsequently as due to the poor quality of the food and chaotic service (we received our meals separately with large intervals) and pressure to buy overpriced local wine coming in at £30 a bottle, we never went back. Neither did the other three couples we talked to.
Thankfully eating out is inexpensive in the immediate area, if it's not particularly good. So during the day I'd head into the modern town and eat with the local office workers and tradespeople down Muratpasa (Street) before a light meal in the evening in the old town. The food is excellent and embarrassingly cheap. We found the best places to be Mermerili overlooking the harbour with great views for sundowners and curtesy fruit bowls thrown in even if you're on beers only. For good food there's only one place really: Vanilla a few doors down from the hotel. First-rate French for only a few pounds more. I had shortrib in red wine with lovely pureed potato and root vegetables; my better half duck a l'orange; with two glasses of the house Merlot which, wherever it was from, was excellent.
