We paid for two nights and stayed for one. The carpets where filthy, the rooms needed decorating, even though the shower room had been done the shower was broken and the water pressure was nil. The only good thing I can say is the view was fantastic, breakfast was good and it's near the Marina.

Have stayed several times, with much experience living and travelling in Turkey, it's not the 5* Ritz but alright. If arriving the best way, i.e. by ferry from Rhodes after flying from Europe, you are off the boat, through passport control and at reception within 10 minutes (ferry port 100 metres away). Reception etc. can be relaxed, welcome to Turkey... More

Don't expect much. It's run by guys who wouldn't care much for cleanliness even if they were able to distinguish. Incredibly cold and drafty everywhere. I was cold and miserable even with the heater turned full blast. Had to beg for hot shower. It was cheap and would consider staying there if the weather is great.

We approached this place with a lot of reservations, given the plethora of bad reviews. It doesn't claim to be great. It is a clean, well maintained joint with small compact rooms and air conditioning that works. Sheets on the bed are clean also. So what is wrong. Seriously, nothing as this is what you get, for the price you... More

Like various other guests, we too made a booking and were told there was no room upon arrival. Dingy bar area, leaking roof, bad smells and unhelpful desk staff. Ended up having to move to a private more expensive pension nearby. (After being offered a space in their dusty dirty roof area.) No apology or explanation , who knows what... More

This was by far the worst lodging experience I have ever had to go through. The only good thing about it is the location and the view. I did not pay much attention to the negative comments about Ideal Pension prior to booking, thinking that perhaps people were either overreacting or there were just one off cases here and there....

We were initially not blown away on arrival as we found the reception chap very lethargic and slow. The carpets up the stairs definately need replacing and some upgrading would be good. The views and location are excellent for the price and close to a 400 year old Hamam that was so great to visit. Rooms clean and breakfast was... More

I booked a dorm room online however on arrival was told there was no availability but I was welcome to stay on the roof terrace for free which I did. If you book you are not guaranteed a dorm room however they had lockers and were provided with a towel, sheets and shower facilities (only one). If you want a... More
