I booked a triple for 79eu/night. Paid 35eu to the taxi driver to get there. The Owner/Manager apologized for the inconvenience; said we should have called the hotel for transfer; and offered us free dinner, then charged me 66eu at check out because it is a B&B and dinner isn't included. He was gracious enough to take us to the Virgin Mary's House and wait, but charged me 50eu plus 12eu museum entry fees for the courtesy. And finally 20eu to transfer us to the Kusadasi port from the property because it is in a remote location that takes a good 25 minutes to get there. He did concede to not charging me more for 3 of us occupying the triple room I booked but advised that 79eu was the single rate - there was just something wrong with the website booking.
In the interest of fairness the Inn is beautiful. The food is amazing. The rooms were very well apportioned and incredibly clean. The hospitality, conversation, and openness of his family who lives there on site were all great. And listening to the call to prayer from the local mosque was a beautiful experience for us Christians. However, those things came for me at 2.5x the expected cost.
I could have argued and complained about the bait and switch. But I was a single woman who speaks NO Turkish there with 2 children and was honestly concerned about not being able to get a cab to port in time for my ferry. I wouldn't stay there again.
