“charming, cosy & quiet peaceful little romantic ottoman hotel, as long as you have the right room...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2011

We stayed here for a week end of May 2011.

we had a fantastic time generally, there are pros & cons that one should know though, read on...

PROS
Was a little worried about what to expect, we arrived at lunchtime and was met by a warm reception and nice guy who carried our luggage. Contrary to what other reviews said the front office gals were very nice and warm, particularly 1 girls who had the warmest smile and always gave us useful directions. We were worried about being on the top/thrid floor at first, but during our stay forund this to be a great choice as it was peaceful and airy.
We stayed in a luxury room with Jacuzzi called Onur pasa, the best they have are the suites but this was sufficient. It was very peaceful which we needed after a long day excursions etc. the room was really nice and spacious for us two, and the guests directly next door were quite which worked in our favour as it could have ruiened our holls. We had a nice lobby with seating area that was for our use, so to cool off one can sit there which was relaxing. AIR CON WAS A MUST and we did have to use this as otherwise the room can get HOT being in the loft.

DINNER... was NICE and scrumtious, differnt variety everday (although not many choices for veggies), a buffet line. As the meat was halal it worked in our fav.. However I MUST say that breakfast was the same everyday.. and more catered for the europeans.

the Location was good in that we were able to get to many places easily, without booking excursions, the only thing we did book was rafting which WAS FUN!!

The town was very much Old cobbled streets and nice with many locals, the harbour is a fav amongst locals esp to cool off and watch the sun set, the local women also gather on certain days and sell traditional food!

This Hamam, we used the Hotel hamam as it looked a lot more hygenic and was convenient, it was nice, not completly as traumatic as I was expecting but it was a great way to finish our holls.

Overall this is a great hotel particularly for couples a romatic getaway, its very well known so when we did get lost just the mention of it, and the fact that the Hotel have put signs up along certain streets to show directions prooved VERY VERY useful on the many times we did get lost amongst the streets and alley ways that look the same.

CONS....

I must mention this, as its usefull,
Unfortunatly the breakfast was the same old eggs/bread. bread and more bread everyday. they could have changed this. The omlettes cooked by chef were not exactly well done! however he was veery bubbly.

2) many staff spoke german/ russain which demonstrates their huge presence, hoever english was very difficult for them!

3) It feels that the hotel do what they can to get money off guests, e.g upon arrival after being given the key for the safe, we get told that its 2 euroes per day!! had we not enquired they would have presented us the check out bill. Drinks and anything in the mini fridge is charged at extortionate rates. we had to buy water 1st day and a small bottle cost 3.5 lira (thats almost £1.75) way higher than UK. So we baught this at the local shops 0.75 Lira. (Beware hotel try not to let you take any food. drinks up with guests, however we were not prepared to pay their rates and we needed to drink so we did! We just kept food out of sight.

3) this is not the ideal place for elderly with the structure and steps.
4) if you are in a standard room, or any of the ground floor ones, then my sympathies are with you as this is a noisy place to be, the main area for eating/ courtyard is here so every morning early you will here the rattling of cutlery and chatter of guests. same as per evening. lucky we were in a good room.

4) the terraace is a wonderful place to eat howevr beware of the steps all around/ lighting / steps can be difficult even for young guests!!!!

Watxh the pounds as they are big on cream. suger and fatty foods, we could have done with a different cold desert other than halva/ baklava!!

4)One more annoying thing!!! watch out for the DAMN DRIVERS they appear out of nowhere and are a nuisence, its very dangerous they just do not care and I am surprised that the authorities dont wish to preserve this part of town which they boast about so much.
5) Dont take any note of the web site and its sea view.. as from what I saw its exaggerated.. those rooms are nice however u only see a glimmer of the sea!
6) ALWAYS HAGGEL THEY WILL RIPP you off the turkish are famed for this even the locals be prepared to walk away!!!. the mosques surround this area so thats also nice.

generally nice managers. This should discourage one, howveer i felt should be noted.
A must visit are side... nice harbour! and alanya boat rides.... tour up to the citadel which they call the castle. amaxing views!!! if i went again , i would stay in side. antalya old town can easily be done in a day and not suited to peopel who like the husstle and busstle, we were ok as we were out everyday.

LATst and finally... please be careful with the buses its very backward they stop randomly at anyone who put their hand out which makes youre journey time twice as long and frustrating especially when the next perosn is just a few yards away!!!

Room Tip: ask to stay at main building.. they have three!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2011

We booked at last minute and hoped that we had made a good choice. We arrived at 1.00am and were delighted to find that the reception had been kept open for us and that check-in was swift and easy. We were surprised to be whisked away from the hotel on a golf cart to a location a few streets away.Inside a heavy door we had to climb a couple of dark flights of stairs to a room at the top of the building.
The room was very pleasant with roof terraces on both sides. The receptionist disappeared quite rapidly and was gone before we realised that we couldn't make the aircon come on and as the room was hot we had to walk back to the hotel and get the receptionist to come and show us how to get it to cool down. The bed was very comfortable, it was very quiet and there was a lovely terrace to sit out on. However,
In the morning after the bathroom floor flooded following a shower we were thinking of changing rooms. Until, on walking down to the ground floor we discovered that we had a beautiful pool of our own.
This was a big improvement on the tiny pool in the main of the hotel which got very little sunshine.
Because we did not stay in the hotel itself we didn't see the marble bedrooms that others talk about but we loved the reception areas of the hotel. The inside restaurant was quite magnificent, especially one slightly cool evening when the staff lit the fire. The pool area was beautiful to sit around during breakfast.
We found all the staff very friendly and helpful and the cook was great fun.
The Breakfast buffet was very good but it was a shame that more fresh fruit was not provided especially as it was cherry and strawberry season. I was happy that pots were provided for tea or coffee.
The evening buffet was disappointing. We loved the soup and cold meze but the main course was spoilt by the overcooked boiled vegetables. After a couple of days we stopped eating the vegetables and helped ourselves to cold meze with the main course. There was a good selection of desserts.
The location of the hotel inside the walled city is brilliant and amazingly quiet and we loved walking around. We hired a car for 3 days and drove to the magnificent ancient sites of Termessos, Perge, Aspendos. We also found some beautiful quiet beaches.
We had two wonderful seafood lunches which restored our faith in Turkish vegetables!

Fantastic 2 weeks in a wonderful hotel - staff amazing especially Yanis and Chian (hope spelt them right) and the breakfast chef - best pancakes ever, porter & reception girls brilliant - couldnt have had a better holiday anywhere - will definately be back soon - recommend the Marmeli local beach - perfect
Normally dont go back to a destination but will be going back later in the year to this hotel as dont think we will find better anywhere else

Room Tip: pay a little more for one of the deluxe rooms

I was informed by my agent that this hotel was absolutely fabulous, and I would love it. Well, to an extend, yes. Lovely rooms, with nice touches both to the interior and exterior. Lots of greeneries and wooden furnishing.

Our stay would have been more pleasant if the receptionist had been more polite. We arrived at 1am that night and we were treated like we just disturb her sleep. She also insisted that we couldn't bring in our mineral water ( we were holding onto a huge 5L mineral water bottle), said we had to drink those in the fridge. Not free of course. We were really tired and as our agent had arranged dinner for us, we requested that she bring the food to the room. She said that couldn't be done. The man helped carry our suitcases to our room that was located on the 3rd floor, and he looked equally unhappy.

Lovely hotel, great location, with plenty of places nearby to eat; we passed on dining in the hotel, not least because of the many comments about overpriced drinks. A really enjoyable trip.

I was travelling with my mother and we stayed for 5 nights at the end of April. We were utterly delighted with the hotel. It is situated right in the centre of the old town with its narrow cobbled streets, corner shops and bars and restaurants. The hotel is an old town villa refurbished couple years ago and a lot of historic remains are scattered as decoration in the two villa courtyards. One courtyard has a small swimmingpool with (only a few) sun loungers - this is also where buffet breakfast, lunch and buffet style dinner is served. the second courtyard is more secluded and ideal to read a book.
In the evenings the tables are decorated with candle light, candelabras and there was even a piano player one night- very very romantic!

The hotel is a bit of a maze with several floors connected by intertwining sets of stairs - not good if you are not well on your feet- no escalators. The food was georgeous! Fantastic selection at breakfast, versatile salad bar with 20 different salads as starters for dinner and varying main meat dishes freshly prepared on the barbeque!
The rooms vary, some are rather small, but to make up for the size ours featured a jaccuzzi bathtub! We also saw one other room, more generous, but that didnt have a jacuzzi. The hotel also has a mini-hamam, which is free, booking recommended though. We were able to benefit from fantastic value for money early traveller discounts, at the hotel the room prizes if I remember right are around 100EUR.
A lot of tourist groups stopped at the entrance to the courtyard and with envying eyes peeked in, the layout and style of the hotel is just stunning!
All good, would definitely go back!
The waiters were all very friendly and always in a good mood. Some of the staff at reception appeared to have been chosen for their decorative quality rather then for friendlyness and helpfullness- only downside of the whole stay.
