after a huge delay at the airport we arrived at the hotel around 3am where we were greeted by many young turkish men drinking. I asked one man where reception was and you can imagine my suprise when he replied 'I am reception'.
He took us up to our room which he had to shoulder barge the door open (as my partner did every time we entered the room) the room was awful!!!. I was stunned into silence as he showed us first our bathroom complete with broken window which wouldnt close, hole in the floor and the shower was a bath shower mixer tap attached to a tray with no plug... just another hole.
Next the double room we had booked, which was a twin room with two single beds. when I pointed this out he said 'this is double' so I replied we assumed a double room would be a double bed at which he gave us both a look as if we were perverts and said 'you can push the beds together if you want to' giggling!!!
The "air con" was a white box in the corner of the bedroom covered in black damp/mould and half hanging off. which he said he wanted to charge us to use... I immediatley refused. To sleep comfortably we had to sleep on towels on the balcony every night to attempt to keep cool.
I cried myself to sleep as soon as the man who 'is reception' left and would have immediatley booked into a hotel the following morning but this would leave us with no more available money. we had no rep as we booked online.
The pool we never used once due to the fact it was tiny and never cleaned. The breakfast we had booked throughout our stay at the hotel was traditional turkish, which consisted of a piece of cheese olives and a boiled egg. I wouldnt mind if that was a tradition throughout the counrty but every other hotel did a full english or at least cereal as standard.
I beg of anyone even contemplating staying here not to. Its not as though me and my partner are overly fussy, we are both 21 and were looking for a basic place to use as a base as we would be sunbathing in the day and clubbing at night, but this was far from basic.. hell on earth.
