            The staff was amazingly friendly & warm. The officers at the reception treated us like family.

            Because we didn't give prior information, we didn't get an extra bed on the first night in a small room with just 1 queen bed & 3 occupants.

            The location to the main sights. Very good breakfast

            The room was very small the bar was not stocked with many things that were on the menu. The staff struggled to understand English but they were very polite and as helpful as they could be.

            The hotel looks good, friendly staff and clean/big rooms. The breakfeast was good and flexible (we wanted to have breakfast half an hour earlier than the original times and this was no problem).

            It's quite a walk (uphill / walking up for 10 minutes) to the tram line and centre.

            The hotel staff is very very friendly and helpful. Although we do not speak much Turkish, they were always there to help us navigate the city. Our room was small but we did not come here to stay in the room so that was not an issue. We thought we would stay here 1 day and ended up staying 5. We would definitely stay here again.

            Staff were helpful. Good location. 15min walk to blue mosque. Many local restaurants and minimarts nearby. easy walk to tramline. Delicious fresh bread at breakfast. Free wifi. Hundreds of tv channels. Good hotel if you just want somewhere basic to sleep and not much more.

            Bathroom was small and old and broken. Shower door didn't close. Some lights didn't work.

            I really liked the Hotel Grand Mark. In fact, I stayed there twice both before and after my tour of Turkey - over a week total. The guys at the front counter were really helpful. My bank card was eaten by teb machine at the Attaturk airport and without the front counter help I could not have gotten it back. I enjoyed the breakfast. The quantity and quality was very good, not a lot of fresh fruit but there are markets all around it where you can get whatever you want. The rooms especially bathrooms are small but very clean. I am a budget traveler and spent very little time in my room. I think the Grand Mark is a great value for a solo traveler. Plus unlimited Internet access from the rooms was a bonus!

            Small bathrooms, but very clean.
