We came to Alaçatı for some relaxation after busy days of tours in other parts of the country. It is a beautiful village, mainly filled with Turkish vacationers from Istanbul and Izmir. The hotel is close to the center of the old part of town; complete with lovely old stone house and quiet garden. The owner, Zenep, oversees a staff that was truly gracious, tending to our every need with a smile. The afternoon tea and cakes are first-rate, and the staff did a wonderful job recommending restaurants, beaches, and wineries to explore during our stay. Alaçatı is not inexpensive compared to other parts of Turkey, but the Taş Otel exceeded our high expectations for service and value. I heartily recommend it!

Very good boutique hotel with some room for improvement. The hotel has been renovated tastefully and is ideally located for Cesme/Alacati. The staff are excellent and Ollum the dog makes every stay delightful. The village of Alacati is charming, although it becomes a bit busy in the high season due to its growing popularity. If you are looking for a place to go to in the spring and autumn with good weather and a more relaxed vibe, you can't beat this place! Highly recommended

Tas Hotel has no equal! To spend a day here is an unforgettable experience. Ms. Zeynep Özis, with her unique style has created a very charming atmosphere in one of the loveliest regions of Turkey. Originally an old Greek house, Tas Hotel has been renovated so tastefully with so much attention to detail. Each bedroom is designed differently. The bedrooms have a lovely warm decor and are very comfortable. The staff is very welcoming and their life seems to be ruled by love of hospitality. You wake up to a delicious breakfast which includes home made jams, olives grown at their own garden, cheese from the region, home made pastries, fresh eggs, juices, tea and coffee. It was a real feast! Your breakfast is served on crisp white linen tablecloth, which adds a further note of elegance. I felt very comfortable and peaceful here and look forward to my next visit! I would like to thank you all for your great hospitality!

Tas Otel was a bit disappointing, the place looks a little neglected. The ac was not working but the street was too noisy to open the windows, the shower head came off, the fixtures and fittings are looking tired. The bed was hard. Breakfast was good, and the staff are very friendly and helpful, but there are better hotels in Alacati.

Thank you very much for your review. I appreciate your comments on our bathrooms. Already last year we had renewed 4 bathrooms and this week we closed our hotel for six weeks to renew the remaining bathrooms ( one of which is in the room you stayed in). As of 1 st of March , our hotel will be ready to accept guests offering the classical and unbeatable Tas Otel service with its experienced, young and friendly staff, breakfast with our own products ( thank you for your compliments on these) our well kept garden, the large swimming pool AND renewed bathrooms! Many thanks again and best regards.

My husband and I have planned a two weeks honeymoon holiday in Turkey and Alacati, Cesme is our second stop before hitting Antalya, Cappadocia, and back to the bustling Istanbul.

We knew these coastal small towns are not necessarily the most happening places during winter time but here at the Tas we feel like we're at a second home. Tas is built from a greek house aged more than a hundred years and thanks to the owner it is very much preserved at its best. If you're looking for a getaway from your busy city life this town and Tas would be a fab idea. In the morning you get to taste the various jams and olives grown here at their garden. Eggs are cooked anyway you prefer and we're delightfully surprised by their homemade pancakes and a local treat pretty much like spring rolls filled with cheese (sorry I don't know how they are called exactly).

The Tas crew are all very friendly and helpful and one major reason why we feel truly comfortable (the lady owner Zeynep came greet us personally the first morning we're having breakfast and we had a few enjoyable chats throughout our stay).

Afternoon tea with homemade cakes, tea and coffee, are on the house and when I'm typing this commentary my hub and I are actually enjoy our winter afternoon next to a real fireplace in the common area lined with carpets and lovely decor. All in all, we enjoy our stay at Tas a lot. Rooms are clean and bed and linens neat which guarantees a great night sleep. Wifi works fine in our room. I'm usually quite picky with bathrooms and I'm satisfied with this one.

Location wise it's right off the main street of Alacati old town which is filled with restaurants and cafes (unfortunately not too many are in business during winter time) and if you ought to spend a day or so in Ilica beach it's only 10 minutes away by bus which runs very frequently.

It's a pity we don't get to meet the owner's doggie Oglum which looks absolutely adorable from the hotel website but we're just as happy to have others around. If you're a pet love you'll love this lovely otel. The cat will happily sit on your lap while you read a book!

Thanks for your hospitality and Merry Christmas to you all!

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Tas Otel has been opened in 2001 as the first small hotel by ZeynepOzis who was one of the pioneers of "protective tourism" implemented successfully in Alacati. Ms. Ozis has questioned the 'mission, vision, strategy and action plan' steps that she has learned in professional life in line with her expectations and the answer she found was to be able to live and work away from the big cities, together with people and animals, doing physical exercise and having a balanced life and Tas Hotel, which was also her dream when she was young, came into being.Tas Otel is a century old Greek house with a swimming pool and peaceful green garden and it has been awarded as one of the best 20 small European hotels by the British Sunday Times. The hotel has an olive grove of 200 olive trees and each year olive harvesting is done together with the guests. The harvested olives are processed and served. Delicious Alacati cake with lemon is served with the five o'clock tea made with the Cesme lemons and in the winter the fireplace and the books are waiting for the guests. ... more   less
