This property is only a 5 minute walk to the beach and an 8 minute walk to the castle. The rooms are simple, but spacious and clean. The best part is the extremely friendly and helpful owner and staff. I would definitely stay again.

This hotel is well located just a few blocks from the beach. Easy walking distance to the castle and Mausoleum. Rooms are simple but very functional. Our room was clean, the bed comfortable, capably air-conditioned. The breakfast was good. Front desk staff was friendly and helpful. Seek a room not facing the street if possible.

We thought the staff, especially the manager did an excellent job of looking after us. The location was great, a quick walk to the beach. Very nice garden. We loved the breakfast. We got a great recommend for meals.

We stayed here for two nights. As other reviewers have noted, the garden area was very pleasant and the location is close to the otogare and the beach but far enough away from the main tourist area to avoid most of the noise. Room was very basic, white tiles throughout. No fridge or television supplied. Bed comfortable with bottom sheet... More

Forget the resort hotels and experience the warm friendly hospitality of Kemal and his staff. The hotel is centrally located,close to the water and very reasonably priced. Our room was clean and comfortable and serviced daily. Rooms do not have the extras of shampoo or television but free Wifi is available. Breakfast is included in the tariff and served in... More

The Hotel Gulec is located in an excellent spot for staying in Bodrum. The hotel is clean and the staff were very helpful in directing us to the places and sites and were keen to offer suggestions for dining. A room on the second floor would be our recommendation. It is a little quieter and slightly larger. Bring your own... More

The Gulec (pronounced Gue-lech') is everything its website says: one of the very few courtyard pensyons left in Bodrum, run by the same family for decades. The courtyard garden is like eden...rose trees! The family is helpful and cheerful, funny even. Having spent months in Bodrum 40 years ago, I would say that Bodrum itself is a horror....I cannot reconcile... More

This hotel has a good location a few minutes walk from the central otogar and room prices are reasonable, but our room was small, not so clean and in bad repair (the sink faucet ran all the time), Breakfast was just ok. Bodrum should have something better than this to offer.

My husband and I loved this hotel with its friendly, helpful owner. There's a shady garden to enjoy your breakfast or have a beer. It's only a few minutes walk from the water, the beach, the shops and restaurants.

Each room has a shower/WC and air conditioning with continuous hot water. A breakfast room and a bar, enfolded in greenery, are intimately inviting, as is the TV lounge for your enjoyment.
