Beyaz is a great hotel - and what makes it great is the family that runs it.
Bodrum is a bit over the top in summertime but Beyaz is an oasis of tranquility. Located about a 20-minute walk from the city center (or a 5-minute bus ride) the hotel is perched on a hill just above the cruise port where the boats arrive from Greece. The deluxe rooms all have balconies that look out over the sea and the pool, and are perfect for watching the sunset. There is also a taxi rank just outside the hotel and a ride to the central station costs 15 TL (+/- 6 euros).
Clean, comfortable and extremely private, our room (no. 8) had a huge terrace that was as big as the room, and a sort of kitchenette - although other than a small fridge, a sink and kitchen cabinets, there was nothing else there - with no stove or utensils.
After reconfirming our arrival, we were surprised to see Murat, the owner of the hotel, waiting for us at the ferry terminal as we hadn't arranged to be collected. He just thought it would be a nice thing to do - and it was! His son Ali and wife round out the staff with a few helpers. Ali was very helpful and kind and, although no one really spoke much English, they all went out of their to make us feel welcome.
Breakfast was a combination of buffet and table service and the rooms came stocked with cold drinks in the fridge that were priced a bit over the local supermarket but well below most hotel mini-bars.
