“Avoid!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2012

I stayed here for two nights as part of a tour group. Initial impressions were good, with a spacious lobby and helpful staff. Unfortunately, it was mostly downhill from there.

Our room was on the fourth floor. The lift was tiny and would only take four people at a time. The carpet in our room was filthy and there were unpleasant stains on the comforter (sunscreen, I hope!). The beds were small but comfortable. The shower leaked all over the bathroom floor and this appeared to be a common complaint from many others in our tour group. There was a musty smell in the room but unfortunately, the air conditioning only worked with the balcony door closed, so we couldn't even air out the room.

The swimming pool was a good size but you had to go down to the basement day spa to get a towel. Dinner and breakfast were included as part of the tour. Dinner had a large number of hot dishes, included BBQ meats and there were plenty of different salads. Breakfast was very ordinary and I skipped it altogether the second day.

There was no water or mini bar in the room but there is a small mini mart 200m down the road. There is however no footpath and you have to walk on the road along oncoming traffic. Bring a handbag/backpack to stow your water or drink purchases as the hotel frowns on outside food and drink being brought in.

I can't comment on value for money compared to other hotels, but for me it wasn't up to scratch and definitely not a four star hotel (as the hotels on my tour were supposed to be).

Dear Sir/Madam,

Thanks your review about our hotel. Our Hotel has all nationatilty guests (from Spain, Italy, Germany, Chinese, Malaysia, India, Indonesia, Iran, Hong Kong, Hungary, Korea, Macedonia, Portugal, Canada, Australia, Belgium, Israel, United Kingdom, Brazil, New Zealand, France, Syria, South Africa, Tahiland,Romania, Netherland, vs). For this reason we try to prepare dinner that can eating ang knowing for all guests. For the rate is not same in all Turkey which you had stayed. For this reason the services and quaities are not the same....

On the other hand, thanks your opions about room carpet. We are beginning to change them with Parquet Laminate Flooring (until today we changed 30 rooms), you can see at our web pages.

Our hotel prefer to emty minibar at the room. Because of controlling time is not enough for all hotel. The groups check-out time generaly at the same time (some times only one hour aproxlimately 120 room empty). And people do not want to wait only a few minute. Our Loby Bar and Room Services are open 24 hours, Our Guest can use them.

The towel in room white only for using in bathroom. We give free of charge blue towel giving from sauna & fitness center & Turkish Bath entrance for using swimming pool area. We do not permint to use white towel in swimming pool area because of sun cream.

The aircondition in room is not working until the balcony door is closed because of saving energy. On the other hand if your balcony door is opening, how is the air condition is enough for your room :-(..

Your Sincerely

I've stayed for a week (23th-30th)June 2011 with my family in this hotel in a half board basis(breakfast+dinner).......In my opinion Hotel Tatlises is clean and has a good location(1 km far from city center)and also has a nice view to the sea especially at the time of sunset!!.....very nice!.....
All the rooms have a sea veiw and this is an advantage of this hotel!........but has no access to the beach and the nearest beach is approximately 1 km far from hotel next to the city center!.....
Facilities and cleanliness of hotel is suit for a 4star hotel but food was not as good as facilities!....A negative point in the restaurant of this hotel was all the drinks was extra and you have to pay for drinks even for a bottle of water!.....
In addition to an affordable vacation Tatelises is a good choice, especially for those who like to spent most of their time outside of hotel and visit the monuments of kusadasi!

Dear Madam/Sir,

First of all thanks your opinions about our hotel. Your reservation made Half Board (Breakfast and dinner). When you made reservation, your agency must have informed you about Half Board, includings and not includings. What is extra or not? Our Hotel has been working Half Board since September 2007. All drinks have been served with special own bottle together with glass. Your Sincerely.

We thoroughly enjoyed our recent stay at this hotel. We asked for and received a superior room which was spotless and updated, overlooking the pool and the sea.
We found the buffets delicious and varied. I think that the management is trying hard or provide good service. All staff members provided our requests. The only negative is that you need to take a taxi down to the port area.

Hotel had good swimming pool and spacious lobby and restaurant. Meals were a bit average. Only stayed there one night about a week ago and have trouble recalling it so not very memorable.

My family and I were disappointed with this specific hotel because we stayed here during a package tour. All the other Turkey hotels were wonderful except this one. If you have the option, do not book this hotel. The rooms had multiple BUGS in them! My daughter was sleeping when I found a SPIDER on her bed! Also I found a mosquito in the room. There are 2 elevators that can only fit 3 people so majority of the time I had to walk up 5 flights of stairs to my room. The food was pretty decent and the pool is an okay size. The elevator was the worst part.

Overall the property was clean, but probably was not up to the 4 star standards that we are used to. Room was comfortable but basic. We didn't have too much of a view, a corner view of the sea.

Food was not too bad, nothing special. We also found the employees weren't overly friendly to assist when we wanted to order drinks. And don't bother with the after dinner show at the amphi-theatre, it was a bit cheesy.

Swimming was nice, although a lot of kids with water guns so it wasn't as peaceful as we hoped, but at least the kids had fun! We did take a quick dip in the sea, at first a lot of debris in the water, but once you get further in, it is quite refreshing.

This is an average hotel, with clean and standard size room and bathroom enough to give you a shower and good sleep, don't expect other things. By the time we arrive, its small lobby was very crowded with tourists. The elevator was small, only suitable for 3 persons, and was fully occupied to deliver guests' luggage, so we chose to go to and from our room at 3rd floor by the stairs. They don't provide mineral water/coffee/tea /water kettle in the room, so bring your own bottled water and put inside your bag.
Please notice that AC will only start when all doors (door to corridor and to balcony) are closed.
Breakfast was of very limited selection of bread. No egg station, only boiled egg.
Location is not of walking distance to any mini-mart/restaurant/cafe.
For tourist travelling in group who can only stop at certain destination/public toilets, the goods in the shop on the lobby was priced fair enough compared to shops at inter city toilet stops, but off course you can get lower price at a supermarket or grand bazzaar.
