“Very Basic but Good Location”
Reviewed 11 September 2011

We only paid £87 for a week B&B so our expecatations could not be high. The hotel is positioned perfectly, 5 mins to everything including beach, night life (bar street) and restaurants. There is no noise from the bar street at night, it's just far enough away. We didn't stay around the pool, we opted for the beach every day as all the sun loungers were reserved early in the morning, plus the area is a bit small. The gardens are nice but a bit overgrown. The rooms are poor - the beds are single, small and hard and the bed linen has seen better days. Towels were dirty and hard. The bath room is very basic but ok, but sewage smells come through the drains in the evening making it quite unpleasant. The breakfast was a disaster, not even a basic continental, just some salads, egg and cheese - we opted to leave it becuase it was covered in flies.

In short, if you want to pay a budget price for a good location, come here, but just use it as a base.

The Hotel pool area and reception are lovely but the rooms are the most basic I have ever stayed in,bathroom consists of an open shower etc (no enclosure) hair dryer but they are very clean,there was no wardrobe just an open rail and a large shelf to put your clothes,only found one electric socket behind the headboards in the middle of the two single beds,the maid does however keep the rooms spotless,the breakfast area is hidden at the rear of the hotel,breakfast consists of soft cheese,tomato,cucumber,olives,boiled egg and bread,jams,butter etc,coffee and tea maker but no juices,you can pay for a english breakfast if you so choose, I didnt get much sleep the whole week through noise from some people in the early hours, staying at the hotel, overall its a shame as the location is very good and the charm of the place when you first enter is really good and appealing,the bar man was very nice and friendly,so to sum it all up,excellent location 5mins to beach (we didnt pay for sunbeds or brollys at the beach),1st impression is hotel is very pretty,the let down is the breakfast,the basic rooms and no peace at night,sorry Im very open minded but I would most definately not return here!

My best friend and I organised a weeks holiday away to celebrate end of university, its the perfect location 2 minutes from the high street, 5 minute walk from the beach and the same amount for bars and restaurants. No loud noise at all at night time so slept very well every night, only 25 lira for fantastic air conditioning and 10 lira for a safe. All staff are fantastic, friendly and very attentive to all your needs, happy to answer any question or to help. The hotel is beautifully kept, very clean with flowers and foliage everywhere and the pool is lovely too. It seemed when we were there the hotel attracts people who want to chill out and we were never put off going to the pool by anyone, and it was always peaceful. Could not of asked for a better location or hotel. Also little buses go past every 10 mins which go into bodrum for 3 lira each way. Yes it is basic but clean, and fresh which is ideal if thats all your looking for!
