My stay started bad and got worse when I ate at the restaurant next door for dinner (MERİT OCAKBAŞI VE MANGAL AÇILDI)...firstly the bell boy insisted that my room was on floor 2 when the number was 3**, finally he admitted I was right (My Turkish is OK ). Dinner next door (affiliated with the hotel) was grossly overpriced. There... More

The hotel needs some help - the decoration is really worn out. The little electric "don't disturb/clean room" signs outside the door are amazing (and very funny) but other than that, the whole place looks very tired. The service was ok and breakfast was non-descript. BEWARE if you get a room looking on to lake Van at the edges of... More

Hotel is perfectly located on the lake side. The view from lake side rooms is very nice. Hotel's bbq restaurant Mangal and fish restaurant are delicious. Fish restaurant, with its broad windows next to the lake has a nice atmosphere. Their specialties, sea bass cooked in hard salt and warm spinach-cheese souffle are must tries. Hotel's staff are not fluent... More

We had hoped to spend two happy nights/days at this hotel on the beautiful Lake Van, but the reception desk staff were so unpleasant that we left after one night to return to Mardin. The restaurant staff did direct us to a fantastic restaurant within sight of this hotel - on the road toward Van - where we had the... More

Tranquil settings. Breakfast area is outside and it is overlooking the lake, nice, peaceful atmosphere. The breakfast buffet also includes local specialities, delicious. I recommend you to try the region's honey with a special yoghurt cream and dried wallnuts. Clean, spacious rooms. Ask for a lake side room, the view is wonderful. Big range of free toiletries including even a... More
