we stayed for 3 weeks in this hotel, whilst visiting friends in the area. We would have been more comfortable and welcomed sleeping on the streets.
The staff started off friendly and helped us with our bags to our rooms and then it stopped abruptly there. We had booked bed and breakfast but after so many complaints from other guests and the fact we would never be awake on time to go to breakfast we avoided it!
we figured because we didnt spend any money in the hotel by buying food or drink or spunking our money of the excessive prices for air con, £120 per room per stay!!!! could have brought my own unit for that!
The rooms seemed clean at first but everything was dusty, and the bathroom was falling apart, the majority of the time the water was cold but if you were lucky at maybe 6am you could get scolded with how hot it was! and the floor was filthy and everything was leaking.
we didnt bother even asking for the wifi even though it was a great selling point for our decision to stay here. we couldnt get any source of conversation with them,
this leads us to our last day when we was expecting to be picked up by our transfer coach at around 6:30, we was told to leave our luggage in the reception for every tom dick and harry to walk past, this was from 11am until our pick, we then ask them if they had been contacted by our transfer company with a blunt reply of 'No' after leaving it till 7:30 our transfer coach didnt turn up, we asked for there help contacting the company and they refused and told us there phones will only dial out to turkish numbers.
We love gumbet with a passion and will always go back there but will always steer clear of club vela!
