This looks like a slightly old hotel, like from 1990's, but the room was very modern. I stayed at Hotel Sapphire for 2 nights at first, then decided to stay 5 more nights. The room was very quiet and comfortable. Staff was very professional and helpful. PCR test was 250 TL and arranged really well, and got results same day after 8pm. Breakfast was not buffet but half pre-packaged and other half of eggs cooked any way you like.
