“Nice rooms, poor food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2013

The hotel looks imporessive. The rooms over look the pool and beyond, one sees the Aegean sea. The rooms are quite nice. The attached balcony offers a lovely view. Excellent balcony for a nice quiet after-dinner nightcap. The bathrooms were quite nice as well.

However, the dinner buffet leaves a lot to be desired, as does the buffet breakfast. Aviod the buffets if possible.

Room Tip: Get the sea facing rooms and get one towards the left of the hotel (if you face the pool withyour ba...

Do not waste your money. The rooms are in disrepair, the wifi is very unstable and mostly unavailable. For breakfast we had to fill up on boiled eggs and bread as the buffet tables looked as if has been picked clean by vultures, the rude staff's comments was that what do we expect, they have a lot of guests... this was only 20min into breakfast service, they said we must come back in half an hour if we want more than a boiled egg. Location is bad, but nice swimming pool.

Room Tip: Book a different hotel :-)

4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2013

We were travelling with a tour group and stayed one night at the Tatlises hotel. The facade of the hotel appears new and has a very nice swimming pool.

We were initially given a double bed room, which faces the main road. The appearance of this room is dated, carpet of this room appears dirty and the noise from the main road was deafening especially from the sirens of ambulance or police cars. We approached the reception for a change in room and requested for a room facing the swimming pool instead.

The service from the reception staff is generally good. Although double bed rooms facing the pool are not available, the reception has kindly offered a room which has triple single beds and arranged someone to combine the 2 single beds together. The 2nd room is much cleaner and appears newly furbished. The wood flooring, cabinets and bathroom looks much newer than the first room. The room is relatively spacious and has a nice view of the swimming pool from the balcony. Do note that the air-conditioning turns off automatically when the balcony door is open.

Free wifi is available at the hotel but we had difficultly getting connected. The hotel has different passwords for different rooms and these passwords were placed openly on the front desk. Guests would need to look for your own room number and the password for wifi connection. We soon realised that we could not log on because someone else was using our password. Hence, we just trial and error by using passwords for other rooms.

As this hotel caters for group tours, there is always a mad rush for dinner and breakfast unless you turn up earlier than the other tour groups.

Room Tip: Choose a room facing the swimming pool to avoid deafening noise from the traffic

Hotel lobby was very tinny, but efficient work from the porter to deliver luggage to the room (points: 4/5)

Reception: not very friendly, no smile at all.

Wifi: complimentary wifi services in this hotel but you must collect your room password from the reception. Due to some of the guest staying in-house are heavy usage for downloading movie all night.

Guestroom: decent size of guestroom, box TV, hairdryer, minibar is available. All guestroom comes with nice balcony overlooking the poolside and by the seaside.

Note: I personally love the hotel come with energy saving system (corridor, guestroom)

Restaurant:
Service staff - no smile at all time. Especially, clearing your place without asking.

Dinner - buffet dinner spreads was good, comes with varieties of salads, but limited in main courses.

Breakfast: I was there at 7am but the hot items was not been replenish at all, till I left the restaurant at around 7:30am.

Spa: personally love it. I tried the VIP hamam bath and massage.

The images of the property are very misleading. The rooms are in disrepair and the front desk staff is very rude. There was a large sign stating that outside beverages and food could not be brought in the hotel. Note...this included bottled water! The hotel is on a hill and a very long way from the shore. There are no sidewalks. I am a seasoned traveler and do not recommend this propert.

Basic room with a local hotel..so no kettle, tissue nor shower ap provided. But nice view of the ocean.
Nearby supermarket but hotel doesn't allow food from outside!
The corridors lights are on automatic self-lit as we walked to our rooms so this can be rather uncomfortable as the rest of the corridors are very dimly lit.

Room Tip: Ask for the ocean view...

For example, corridor lamps is LED and lighting according to people movings; air condition is working if the balcony door is closed; the taps in public toilet have sensors for water, etc.

Dear Sir,

First of all, thanks your review.

Our hotel is an economic hotel. Our guest are all around the world countries. Because in Kusadasi, only a few hotel like us accept the groups that stay one or two night and half board basis.

May be you not desire chincken wings but the guest from other countries like Singapoure, Malaysia, Chiene, Indonesia etc, like chicken.

On the other hand our dinner is open buffet syle. For hot dishes buffet (8 different dishes) you can eat other things such as fish, beef meat, vegeteran.. And our salad buffet, mezes and sweet buffets..

Our hotel restaurant is not A'la Carte..

We are sorry for your disappointment..
