        I did not like the hotel; it is much bellow classification (should be classified as 3 stars in stead of 5): old, very poor facilities, even tv channels are very poor and in Turkish language only...

        Free Wifi, great barber on the 1st floor. Try the Full Option.

        Check out process is too slow in the mornings.

        No toilet brush in the bathrooms! I reminded this to the hotel staff in my previous three stays but obviously they do not appreciate the need for such a device!

        The personnel of reception the awful. Wanted to force to pay for number already paid by us as by the carelessness couldn't find our envelope. After 40 minutes of findings-out, all the same have found it and at all haven't apologized. Impressions of hotel remained not the most good.

        Nothing..... I am absolutely unhappy with this Hotel!!!!!!They took 500EUR (like for mini bar, but I didn't use it) deposit and after check out don't back it.Terrible Hotel.it is not 5 it it is 1 Star Hotel...

      • Single
        9.6

        This hotel is very good and the staff were excellent, very polite and courteous. Although its not exactly central, but by taxi it took 10 minutes to many shopping center or to city center. Rooms and common areas are extremely clean. The complimentary fruits along with the named welcome card upon arrival was absolutely touching. The free Wi-Fi is very fast . Good value for money. Enjoyed my stay very much.

      • Single

        Plaza Hotel offers everything I need: a warm welcome, friendly staff, comfortable rooms, free internet, attractive bathroom amenities, etc..

      • Single
        7.4

        the location is great, the staff are cooperative and the service was smooth

        the sheets need to be changed, I found that my bed sheet was old!!

      • Group of friends
        3.8

        I didn't like that many things about. It definitely shouldn't be ranked 5 stars though.

        Bathrooms and tubs are very small. The doors are see through. The wall paper is ripping off the walls. The staff are crooked and getting mad if you don't give more than a %20 tip and they show it clearly. They charge stuff to the room without concent.
