This was my first trip to Turkey and this hotel was a great place to base out of. Close to lots of activities and historical sites. Very clean, very friendly and helpful staff. Would stay there again for sure!

overwhelmingly popular tourist destination, and a
prime location for visitors to be wowed on a truly
