Location: very close to the center, but not noisy. it has its own beach (but it operates independent from the hotel, and you can enter even if you do not stay here).
Rooms: very clean, but tiny. the a/c blows directly to the bed as the bed practically occupies the whole room. The isolation is non-existent. When others in our floor closed their door, that woke us up.
Breakfast/restaurant: Contrary to the previous reviews, the breakfast is not that bad (yes the bread is not fresh, but for Turkish standards it is average). the restaurant was always empty (the menu looked overpriced). We only drank tea, it was overpriced and not fresh (Turkish tea is made fresh).
Staff: this is the worst part. They are not rude and try their best, but the receptionists do not know anything about the area. For instance when I asked where to eat they answered "you can eat anywhere, all restaurants are good" (not true). Then I asked when the ferry goes to the Kastelorizo Island, receptionist said only Tuesdays and Sundays (again, not true, it goes daily). I asked for sightseeing, receptionist advised me to go to one of the tour agencies in the city. Either the hotel changed owners, or the knowledgeable Belgian/Turkish couple were on a long holiday, as we did not spot them.
Transportation: if you arrive by bus, some hotels offer to pick you up from the terminal, but not this one. The distance is about 1,5 km. If you have heavy luggage, you probably need to get a cab. It will take you less than 2 minutes, but will cost you 8 lira.
All in all, it was clean and quiet, but the hotel does not deserve this price tag (75 euro per night). We stayed here because everywhere else was sold out. Next time I am in Kas, I will stay somewhere else, possibly in one of the pensions with a/c, and spend the money on daily trips instead.
