First of all, I think I will come to the hotel again. For my comments, I will start from the bad and go towards the good. My experience was very good, except that there are 2 receptionists who are far from such kindness and naivety in such a beautiful hotel. Their names are mustafa and turgay they was near to destroy my trip If it weren't for those two people and I had done my work myself I would have been less tired mentally. It is very sad that such rude people work for the hotel. But the fact that there was a helpful and smiling lady like Dilek she was amazing kindly person and she balanced the situation. I would like to thank the waitress Pinar for her unique and excellent service. She was a true royal lady. I will never forget the meticulousness and kindness of the lady who cleaned my room. Thank you for everything Mrs. Noktam I will pray for you. Bellboy sedat also helped us a lot. thank him too. As you can see, I had no problems with anyone except the receptionists Mustafa and Turgay. It is a complete nonsense for those two people to work in such a hotel. T hope the hotel gives them the necessary training. For Mustafa and Turgay, I will pray for them to improve a little and become a kind and good person. Their hearts are so filled with evil that if you saw the way they behaved, you would pray for them too.
