I moved to Bursa, a very nice city with historical attractions and a quite conservative culture. It is located inMarmara region and it has been capital of Ottoman State, but today with its almost 2.8 millions of inhabitants is one of the most important cities in the country. The first settlement in the area was established around 5200 BC and now it is possible to see different archeological sites, even if some of the finds are abroad in important museums.
Around the center there is the Grand Mosque, example of the Ottoman architecture with its two minarets, differen ancient mosques, the three bazaars and the Castle, from where to see the city from the top. Among the attractions there are the art, the architecture and the archeological museums. To see everything is necessary a week, but in few days it is possible to enjoy the life and to visit the most important places.
I was searching for a luxury hotel where to stay and I noticed that a bit far from the center of Bursa there is a quiet area with some luxury hotels. Among the international brands like Sheraton, Crowne Plaza and so on there is a local one called Hotel Gold Majesty. I wanted to use the Turkish luxury and I am satisfied with my choice.
There is a huge entrance, made with modern furnitures and decor, but the idea is really to be in a big building, as it is. Gold color mixed with brown and white colours characterize the common spaces. From the reception the guest pass a small bridge to enter in a big corridor and arrive to the elevators of the different wings of the hotel to reach the room. Flowers, paintings, sculptures and modern creative objectives are everywhere to give the idea of the luxury and of the art.
Guest rooms are really spacious, well equipped and with modern furniture. In my suite there is a round bed and a big Jacuzzi in the bathroom. A comfortable sofa and armchairs are part of the lounge located together with the room form where to have a verynice view of the city, even if the best panorama with mountains and part of the city is available from the top floor from one of the restaurants, sometimes used as meeting room as well. A big flat screen TV, a good Wi-Fi connection and a minibar are part of the equipment.
The breakfast served in the ground floor restaurant is prepare with good food and most of the plates are traditional, as the menu offered during lunch and dinner time. In the hall of the hotel there are comfortable armchairs where to relax and chat with some friends or colleagues. Waiters are always available around there and guests can order some good Turkish tea.
