The architecture is perfect. It's clean pure chic. But that's about all this hotel really has to offer.
The staff speaks fluent Turkish and that's it. It's not joke: we had to get the "Client Relationship Manager" to the restaurant to place the order of ONE DIET COKE because no one understood (neither English, German, French or Spanish) - and my personal impression was that no one really tried or cared about it either.
VALUE FOR MONEY:
The KUUM hotel will charge you extra for pretty much everything. If you booked this five star hotel including breakfast (which you have to do because it is about half an hour car ride to Bodrum and there is not much choice around) you will find yourself confronted with the most humble version of a continental/turkish breakfast. If you care for cereals, musli or bacon & eggs it will cost you nerves to place the order and money because they charge you extra. We felt 4,50 Euro for a cup of cereals is simply outrageous.
We left 2 days earlier and felt relieved to get out of this place with it's careless atmosphere. We didn't feel welcome - we felt exploited and fooled.
So it turned out that the last 2 days of our holiday when we spent the night in a 24€/night guesthouse were the best ones. Lovely, kind hosts and friendly people - that's how I got to know Turkey throughout the last years - and you will not find any of this in Hotel KUUM.
