I would like to aim this review at people who like budget travel/adventure/culture holidays.
After many years of traveling i have not stayed in a better budget B/B,motel.SERVICE.Nothing was any trouble to the owners/staff from problem solving to bar/ food service, the young staff where friendly and welcoming to all the guests,VALUE.When you consider what you get with the whole kamer experience i found it to be great value for money.SLEEP QUALITY. The bedding and towels are a little frayed sometimes, But are washed within an inch of there lives, clean crisp and sun dried,(its also the first time i have seen a pillow wash and change mid week)The FREE air conditioning ensures a good nights sleep,open the door and the only thing you hear is the music...... of the sea and the wind.
CLEANLINESS.Im not going to tell you the place is sparkling.But it is cleaned to a very high standard by the single very hard working room manager, the grounds and bar/food area are a credit to the bar staff/cook and owners.
LOCATION.wow and i don't just mean the ancient sites that are all within walking distance,
you are a very short distance from the two very very busy noisy/intimidating main streets selling all the tourist tat, the busy harbor area,and all the restaurants you will need,the kamer has its own little oasis, in a small square just out of the hustle and bustle.Tables on the street and in the bar great for the people watchers.
ROOMS.I have mentioned free air con and clean rooms/bedding.what i need to let you know is that rooms have a large ample size balcony with a sea view, inside is a good size room (im 6ft8 and i felt very comfortable) and bathroom with a small fridge the room furniture while not new was neutral and serviceable you also have access to a small safe (for a fee key from reception) a hair dryer is available in the bathroom. room 205.is fantastic for seeing all views.
Right i hope you will find the above helpful so here is a few paragraphs on our findings in the motel and side.The great plus is the sun deck over looking the sea, not crowded as a rule with private bathing on free beds with no sand in the places you don't want sand! they have a small veg plot with peppers eta and a few roman remains just hanging about, then there is the large easy decent on to the shore via some wooden steps,once there you have your own plunge pool to cool off,or you can walk out to the deep water but there are large rocks to negotiate, all this with a snack and drinks service that is the least pushy i have ever experienced in turkey.
We now move to the jewel in the crown the main decking and the area we called the captains table it is fantastic. and a great place to chill out with sea views, read,free WIFI on a tablet,have lunch out of the sun (you will not find cheaper any where in side with the views/location) The captains table is on top of one of the many defense towers built in the city wall and i loved it.
The bar area is open to the square and you will find shop owners playing back gammon in the shade or meeting up at the end of the day say hello they don't bite.The toilet in the bar is the cleanest ive ever seen (quote from the mrs)so i think you will get from that the owners and staff have a unique motel with a formula that is working very well
Now for my rant i read so many negative comments about breakfast WHAT do you eat at home!
yes eggs are the main stay but they are free range protein.not the rubbish we think are free range at home Breaki at the kamar is like a wedding buffet all you can eat and good value eat the curds and the dish of the day if you want McDonalds this is not for you! ,on that note if you look in the kitchen it is spotless.
The weekly BBQ is a must great food at a great price with great views
I would recommend the second floor rooms for views and not over looked.205
Take some buy some neoprene shoes for the rocky sea entry
British take pounds exchange for TL for better rate and cheaper haggling
