After the proclamation of the Republic, Atatürk stayed in this hotel on 16-18 September 1928 and 22-26 November 1930. On his last visit, Atatürk noted the following lines in his notebook:
“Samsun 16 September 1928; it's a quarter past eight. I'm in the writing room. I write these lines while waiting for İsmet Pasha. I come to Samsun for the third time. The first development is known, I read the history in front of my eyes, on the lid of a long cigarette box on the office: May 19, 1335. After that I came again. About 4 years ago, in a development I have identified the date above. Ismet Pasha came, I leave the article. "
