Definitley not worth it!!

Bad (2.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on October 9, 2008

Was hoping for a very pleasant arrival, which i was greeted by a young porter at the big heavy iron doors (not for the weak) of the Ipek Palas. ANyway plonked my luggage at front of reception desk , was greeeted by the Hotel Receptionist, " you have a reservation, sir ?"
Anyway after confirmation, then i was offered a complimentary fizzy drink(non alcoholic)! began to sup it through the straw, which had a hole in it... not a very good start! [this is gonna a be a great holiday] i was thinking...so the receptionist called the porter to accompany me to my room...so went in the lift which is very small but can hold up to 5 persons @ 400kg weight , i was very suprised! Arrived at the 4th floor approached the room, No 409! Porter boy opend the door - OMG! WHat a very small room! How on earth is this ? I wasnt expecting this [i was thinking in my mind].. Then porter boy says, "enjoy your stay"!
SO the room was very small and only had electric sockets x2 and despite this they were both in ridiculous places, one adjacent to the bed so if anything was plugged in i.e. mobile phones, mp3, cameras etc. they had no other place to sit, other tha the bed..and the other socket was situated in the most ridiculous place, in the wardrobe which was being used by the TV ! Was very annoying! SO there was only 1 primary socket which was the one near the bed! The bathroom which had 1 shower, basin and WC all tightly fitted, was very small and tight to move around..even getting in and out of the shower was a tight squeeze for me, a chap of 1.68m and 66kg! The view from Hotel window looked on to a construction site with a very big crater in the ground?? Anyway, luckily there was no construction work happening during my stay! There wasn't even a comfortable place to sit, other than the bed or floor, at least there could have been a table and chairs for me and my girlfriend to sit at! I asked to be moved to another room which the hotel agreed toom but my girlfriend was happy to stay. So we didn't change! Then Breakfast which was the same selection of foods everyday, for me it was very boring and they even charged 5.00 Lira for a glass of freshly squeezed Orange juice, which i thought was appalling! The waitresses where keen ion taking unfinished servings away from our tables, even though me and my girlfriend had not finished eating completley! Which i found very annoying! You go away for 2 secs and everything is cleared from the tables - Gosh! I will not stay at this Hotel again!

Unique Quality: Themost satisfying aspects about this Hotel was the -

Lobby.

Location.

View for the breakfast room, overlooking the rooftops and the Bosphorus, absolutley beautiful!
