Great location. Friendly and very helpful staff who helped make our stay very enjoyable.
This is a Trusted Review. Why?
The owner was very knowledgeable and very helpful. Always cared for us and always on our side (e.g.1 told us to be sure to haggle at the Grand Bazaar, although this info was given in all the guide books, I felt like he was protective of his guests, e.g.2 when the shuttle bus to the airport was late he called the shuttle many times to make sure they have not forgotten us). Never pressured us to buy any tour from him (i.e. he has told us what he can arrange/sell only when we asked) so we rather felt at home than staying in a "business". Last not least, I did like the breakfast and I am a very picky eater...
One thing which can be improved is the heating system. The heater in our room was near the ceiling pointing horizontally, so it was not very efficient, if it was pointing slightly down towards the bed...
