When we arrived in Antalya, the hotel we'd originally booked wasn't ready and didn't look that impressive. So we went for a walk and saw this place.
"Wow," we thought "What a pity we're not staying here. Wish we were the kind of people who could stay in a pension overlooking a Roman temple."
We trudged back to our original hotel. Our rooms still weren't ready and they regretted that there was no electricity that day and...
A quarter of an hour later we were checked into the Villa Verde. The rooms are DELIGHTFUL. You do pay a proper price for them, but they are exceptional. The bathroom would rival that of a 5-star hotel. The bed was impressive and the view was stunning.
Good hotels in Turkey are all about the views. And here you can sit up and look out at the temple ruins. In the evenings locals gather there for a bit to play guitar and talk - it's not intrusive, it's really nice, and don't worry about them keeping you up all night, as they're gone by 10pm.
The breakfast is amazing. The staff have excellent English but were very encouraging about my awful Turkish.
