Nice place, it has thermal water pool indoor and outdoor, turkish bath. Staff is friendly. Not very personal but alright. Dinner and breakfast were included, that was nice. Still a bit pricey for Turkish standards and at the end of our staying they charged us for a bottle of water in the restaurant with 3 euros. A bit odd considering... More

The rooms were nice. The breakfast was wonderful with lots of options. The best part was the hot springs under the hotel. They provide robes and towels. The pools are very relaxing. The hotel is close to town and everything that you might need, including swim suits.

We came to this hotel after visiting the pools/ruins (don't miss it!) and found a nice size room. Clean. No amenities in the bath. Decent towels. Quiet. Sweet village and downtown. Not a lot of choices in town. Breakfast was good.

We had a lot of fun staying at this property. We enjoyed walking through the town after checking in. The natural hot springs were very nice before calling it a night. Our room was comfortable and we appreciated the robes and towels for the springs.

Would say that is a mistake to ranked it as 5 star hotel due to the experience staying in this hotel...travelled during winter, the thermal pool helps but the room is unexpectedly a sad to quote upon. Just a pillow being provided in each of the bed and no mineral water supply un the room. Comes to actual case encountered,... More

Karahayıt Mevkii,Pamukkale, Pamukkale 25 May 2013 Open and spacious. Very friendly staff. Good, firm mattresses for good back comfort. Lack of electrical outlets, weird lighting, hair dyer not practical and seemed 30 years old. No real filter coffee, just instant (Nescafé).

We were here with a tour group. (Rick Steves) The room smelled strongly of smoke. The only hotel information in the room was a survey for their benefit.... but we never did find out about the pools or hours. Shabby and dated bed covers. Rough sheets. Bird [--] all over the sliding door. (in their defense-- there were so many... More

Since it seems to cater to tour groups and I suppose gets the business because it offers great discounts to them, this hotel appears to stay in business. It was filthy and to call what I slept on a bed in the 21st century is giving it way too much credit. Read the most current reviews before selecting this hotel.... More

OK accomodation. Breakfast good if you like eating with two bus loads of tour groups!

Disappointing. The promised thermal pools were covered in algae and unusable. The buffet dinner was fine but no where near as good as what we experienced in many similar priced hotels elsewhere in Turkey. And the rooms weren't very clean, and the bathrooms need serious updating. The entire handrail in the shower came off in my hand without much weight... More
