3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

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.

Quiet, good hotel with good SPA, and good food and service. Esapecially the warm, red water from underground was a positiv experience. Try to stay for minimum 2 days if possibble, this place is worth it.

If you love some peace and quiet after a tumultuous stay in Istanbul, then this little hotel is the place to be. Although it may be a little too low-key for some folks, the hotel embodies what the Pamukkale region is famous for: hot mineral springs and (of course) Dr. Fish. The waters contain about 14 different minerals, so the... More

We were happy with the thermal pool but that was about it! Unfortunately the beds were uncomfortable, the breakfast was ok not fantastic, they charged extra for water and as you can't drink the hotel water it really should be included in the price. We had a triple room and had to ask twice for an extra towel, cup etc.The... More

Our bus tour director said this was the best hotel in the area, if so, I hate to see what the others are like. The room was marginally acceptable, the free Wi-Fi was nearly impossible to connect to. the front desk told me, "what do you expect with 400 people on it?" what I expect is at Wi-Fi system in...

The other reviews tell it all. Nice looking hotel that caters to tour groups. Paper thin walls, poor wi-fi, marginal buffet dinner and breakfast. Hot dining room. Nice hot spring pool and a regular pool. Room had a small balcony and a screen door so you could keep it open at night. Overall, OK, but glad we were there only... More

We arrived in the evening and were delighted with our comfortable room at Lycus River Hotel. We were a small group of 6 but they also caters for bus-loads of tourists, so expect plenty of people. The evening meal was served out-doors near the pool area: fantastic environment and wonderful food although some of it cold. Staff were attentive and... More

Not even rated as 3 stars.. Rooms are small and bathroom is rusty. Restaurant has cats walking around. A small bottle od water cost 5 TL.. Pirates. Only good thing is the thermal pool. Nice for relaxing.
