We chose this hotel because it was the cheapest our agency offered and we thought how bad can it be? We will be staying outside most of the time so it wouldn't matter. Turn out it did.
We arrived Monday night, they gave us some leftover food which was nice of them considering the fact that we arrived past the dinner time.
They gave us the smallest hotel room I’ve seen my entire life, you could barely squish between the bed and the window to go to sleep. But we were way too tired to go back and ask another room and we both concluded that we can deal with it. Turns out it gets worse. The bathroom didn’t have a mirror (to use for shaving for example), neither did it have air- vending. The room smelled like cigarettes smoke plus mold, which is a horrible smell. The air conditioning was right by the head of the bed and we had to keep it open because the windows had to be closed (incredible noise from outside). And the worst part was only starting. At 5:30 in the morning, the prayer started at the mosque next to the hotel. It was unbelievable loud as the windows were wooden and not soundproof at all. At 6 a clock in the morning after a sleepless night, I went to reception to ask for another room. The receptionist said it was “Impossible” to change rooms. The manager heard us arguing and he interfered. After arguing with him as well, all of a sudden a room became available. The new room was bigger, quieter (as it was facing the parking lot) but it still looked shabby and it smelled awful. The pictures posted are from the second room. Hot water was not always available and I don’t know about you guys but I don’t like it when I’m showering and all of a sudden the water turns freezing cold.
Double- Rooms have no balcony so we had to dry our bathing suits and towel on the window knobs.
Food: was all right. Breakfast was the same every day but it was satisfactory. Dinner was very good indeed, I must admit. Plus every night they would change the main course.
Staff: was nice but they spoke very little English so it was impossible to strike a conversation. They fluently speak Russian though and Turkish of course.
Location: the hotel is located in the city center so if you want to travel a lot in the neighboring areas (which you should) is an advantage. The drawback is the sound level. Loud noise comes from everywhere, the mosque, the main street, the street shops, the beach clubs and so on. If you are looking for a peaceful experience Kemer may not be the place.
The interior garden and the pool was a nice place to spend the evening, it’s the place where you have access to wireless, but the Internet is working absolutely lousy.
To sum up: if you are a Russian family with children it is a good and cheap place to go. Do take the garden view –balcony rooms and you’ll be just fine.
If you are a couple, you’re not Russian and you are a light-sleeper, sorry I can’t find any good reason to choose this hotel.
