This hotel was clean and comfortable but definately not 4*..food was good, the thermal pool was great but in need of a good revamp i would say. well located. Close to Pammukale. Very big restaurant feeling like a cafeteria. If a little more effort is done to revamp and make it nicer it can be great.

Firstly, I don’t think this is a 5 star hotel but nice lobby and ground. Overall, I like our room and the hot spring pool (both in door and outside).Our room and toilet were small but clean. The bed was comfortable and there was fresh fruits basket (FOC) for guests.They provided breakfast and dinner and the food just normal. On... More

My room was great ! The staff was nice and polite . But for me it is not normal one beer to be more expensive than here on OKTOBERFEST . Cocktails 10-15 euro ( in Agia Napa Cyprus or Ibiza 5-8 ) I am lucky that we were HB and we pay only for the Drinks . The spa is... More

I honestly don't see what there is to whinge about. It's an excellent hotel and worthy of it's 5 star rating. Having read previous and most recent reviews, I was rather skeptical about this hotel and tried to lower my expectations as advised by my Turkish friend. So I was pleasantly surprised! Here's my take: 1. First of all, you... More

This hotel is absolutely not a five star hotel. Far from two star. Very bad hotel room, old furniture, untidy beds, not working tv. The dinner is between 19:00-22:00 but when we went to restaurant at 21:10 , they said there is no food, its closed. Very poor breakfast like one star breakfast. Rude workers. They even dont hesitate to... More

We stayed here with a tour group. Our room was miles from reception. Not a good start. It is easy to get lost. The room was tired and unloved. The wi-fi didn't work at all. The staff were overwhelmed by the numbers. The food was worse than RyanAir's food. The waiters in the aircraft hanger that doubled up as a... More

We did use the spa and got a great Turkish Massage which... More

The entrance and foyer of the hotel was excellent and gave the feeling of 5 star hotel, but the rooms were very poor, beds were shabbily made, the bath room was the worst area in the room, the toilet seat was broken, the shower head did not fit the fittings as the shower was hanging off and the water just...

We arrived at night just trying to catch up with our tour group and its dinner time. You'll be met with a guy who don't speak much english but led us immediately to the dining area for dinner. The room was filled with tourists, the buffet area is big enough to accommodate about 100 people. The food was regular, nothing... More

The grounds of this hotel are very pretty, and it's close to Pamukkale and ancient Hieropolis. But the room was pretty basic and worn, and the bed was uncomfortable. The staff were fine; the food wasn't memorable.
