I will start with the few negatives. The beds are hard and the pillows are pretty terrible. If you don't like you shower in your bath, that too is a negative. But that is about it. On the positive side, this is one of the most wonderfully situated hotels in this city. It is on the waterfront of the Dardanelles with the most incredible view from the restaurant. The breakfast is fantastic with local choices mixed in with some kids cereals and toast (with a great selection of spreads). If you are a coffee drinker, you will be disappointed with the Nescafé machine that is provided at breakfast but there are plenty of coffee places within walking distance. It is a 2 minute walk to the shops and to the ferry (both passenger and car) which takes you to the other side of the straight (obviously) where the war cemeteries and Anzac Cove are situated. This is a beautiful part of the world so even if you are not there for the world war 1 tours, there is much to see and do. The ruins of ancient Troy are only 45 kilometres away and ancient Assos is about an hour away (this is an extraordinary place in itself - scenery that will leave you breathless). All in all, the Akol is a basically comfortable but definitely well situated hotel in a wonderful part of the world. If you have a favourite pillow that you can fit in, by all means do so but the positives outweigh the negatives.
