The appartments themselves are very basic with no tv and such but it is what you pay for. We were in one of the attic rooms which I was dreading before going on holiday because of the reviews I had read. I had no reason too! Yes the bedroom ceiling has a weird slope but that caused no problems to us. We also were provided with clean bed sheets frequently which were arranged in cute little heart shapes. I also saw a review about the sheets causing rashes.. It was probably a heat rash as you know, it's a hot country. The noise levels from the hotel were fine, it was usually the restaurant/bar 'Romance' opposite that was quite loud (nothing to do with Babadan though). You will also get hassled by locals quite often which has been mentioned by a few other reviews, however you need to expect that from Turkey so if you don't like it, pick another country!
We also found the staff absolutely amazing especially Felis (sorry if its spelt wrong!) and Max who offered nothing but great service.
The only issues we had (which were nothing to do with Babadan itself) was who we booked with, Thomson. They had given us quite an awkward location considering we'd asked for a girls holiday with lots of night life. The bars usually shut around 12am in icmeler and the best place to go was marmaris where they had a huge strip full of bars which was half an hour in a taxi (so not really affordable or practical). Our rep, Sean, was also a bit useless as he firstly over charged me £100 for our excursions. He did come back the next day and give it back and apologise when he'd realised he was £100 up so I did forgive him. However, we also wanted to go to a mud bath which he'd helped us book. When we arrived we realised we'd actually been booked on the Turkish spa trip which was the same price but was basically a sauna and massage which we could of had in England unlike a mud bath.
The last straw came when we had asked Sean about the bar crawl and were reassured we would be looked after and taken back to our hotels once the night was finished. We later found out on the bar crawl that we'd have to find our own way back which we had not really budgeted for so had to leave earlier then planned just so we could afford a taxi home (as mentioned previously we weren't in walking distance of marmaris)
I know it's nothing to do with the hotel but people often book there stay here with Thomson so I thought it could just be a warning for anyone else.
