Great family-run guesthouse, centrally located
Located right behind the archaeology museum and down the street from the St. John Basilica, this is a great family run place. Breakfast was delicious and filling. Very helpful hosts.

6/10 Good

Clean and centrally located
Given the reviews and price, I was expecting something with a bit more style and comfort. It’s not luxurious, but it does have its good points. Firstly, the owners are lovely. Friendly, helpful and keen to please. Secondly, it’s centrally located in a quiet neighbourhood. The rooms and comfort level are fairly ordinary. Clean and spacious, but fairly basic with wifi that only reliably works in the courtyard and breakfast room. I was happy with the stay, but would have liked a bit more comfort and a stronger wifi connection.

Great Guesthouse but not wheelchair accessible
Ali Baba's is a great guesthouse. It's in a great location. It has a lovely courtyard. The room we had was large and scrupulously clean. The hosts were welcoming and gave us great breakfasts. I would stay here again without hesitation. It is, however, not wheelchair accessible and I booked there based on the information that it was. As we arrived they were in the middle of building 2 ramps for me which worked delightfully. The bathroom in our room was not wheelchair accessible but if that is absolutely required a large hotel is probably your best bet. This worked for me.

Very friendly and generous.
Ali Baba and Mehmet are so lovely. They go above and beyond to make our stay pleasant. They offer lots of great food and answer all our questions generously. Mehmet even got up at 5am to help out get it the door with a hot breakfast!
