Awful! The owner treated me like garbage.
Posted Aug 5, 2015
I've never had a worst experience staying at a hotel. We stayed at the Chora Guesthouse for only one night, after 3 weeks of travelling around Turkey. When we checked in, I asked the proprietor for advice on getting to the airport, and he kept trying to get us to book his friend's shuttle service. His friend's shuttle service started at 9am, and would get us to the airport for around 10am. I really wanted to be at the airport for 9am, and so I told him that this would not work and asked if there was another company that left at 8am. He kept insisting that we book through his friend, and after awhile of me, insisting that I wanted to leave earlier, he finally snapped. He yelled at me, at the top of his lungs, and waved his hands in my face. He accused me of not trusting him, and that I was just a tourist and I should listen to him. After he yelled at me, he muttered under his breath in Turkish throughout the rest of the transaction ( we still needed to pay for the room, and he still needed to show us to our room). I was furious at how he treated me. I wanted to leave, but had already payed, and I didn't want to spend my last night in Istanbul running around looking for hotels. I was so upset, that I went to another hotel and asked their front desk for advice on getting to the airport.
Otherwise, the location is good, but the bathroom was dirty--especially the shower. The room itself was pretty. For the same price though, you could stay somewhere nicer. AVOID THIS PLACE!!!!
