“Great location + Magnificent view for cheap!”
Reviewed November 7, 2012

We booked this hotel mainly because it was a very cheap 4* hotel with good reviews. I wasnt very impressed by the photos i had seen online but was pleasantly surprised by what we saw in real.

At check in we requested for a sea facing room and were delightfully accomodated. The room was clean, comfortable, spacious and had the most magnificent view! The bathroom had a big bath with a nice high pressure shower head which is exactly what we needed after the long exhausting trip.

The hotel is located a short walk away from this island, dont know what it's called, lots of restaurants, shopping, pubs & public transport.

The only minus for me was the breakfast, however let me point out that it seemed to be a common problem with most hotels in Turkey. Although they offered more than the standard Turkish breakfast (baguette, boiled eggs, tomatoes, cucumber, cheese, olives, butter, turkish tea/coffee) that frankly i am not a fan of & that some hotels only offered, like english tea, cereal & pastries except they were stale, fresh juice which was actually canned juice, oily sausages and omelette.

All said you shouldnt let the breakfast get in the way of booking a very nice hotel in a great location with a brilliant view.

Room Tip: Choose the sea facing rooms!

This hotel is perfect if you’re on a budget and want a central location. The Derici Hotel is in the heart of Kusadasi near all the shops and restaurants. Please note that the hotel is very basic and quite run down, but that’s reflected in the cheap price you pay. As noted in a lot of other comments unfortunately the hotel is carpeted, if they invested in new flooring it would make a huge difference to the place! As currently it gives it a musky dirty smell, however the rooms are actually very clean. When booking we requested a sea view, unfortunately when we checked in we received a room looking directly onto another hotels pool, meaning we didn’t have much privacy or a nice view. We asked at reception if it was possible to change, however they told us you had to pay a premium for a sea view, however we were never given the option as would have been quite happy to do so, instead they fobbed us off daily saying we could move the next day, eventually we gave up trying and would have preferred the truth that we couldn’t move from the start. Again our room was very dated and the beds and bedding were very uncomfortable- but clean. During our stay we noticed some rooms in the hotel had been refurbished and looked lovely, but unfortunately I think it depends on luck which type you get! It would have been good if they offered an option to pay a premium for the new rooms.
We stayed B&B, the breakfast is again very basic, but convenient, offering: Cordial juice, cereal, pastries, omelettes and the traditional Turkish breakfast: boiled egg, yoghurt, cheese, tomato and cucumber. We didn’t particularly enjoy it, but it did the job. There are plenty of lovely bakeries and coffee shops near the hotel.
The pool terrace has great views of Kusadasi and the port, however it is quite small and cramped. You can get a Dolmus easily and cheaply to Ladies beach and Long beach, if you’re looking for a large sandy beach.
Despite my negative comments, I would recommend the Derici Hotel if you want to experience Kusadasi and just want a clean, cheap place to rest your head.

Room Tip: When booking try and see if there's the option to request one of the hotels new refurbished room...

This was the last stop in our three-week trip to Turkey, and we'd had some ups and downs in our choice of accommodation (ok, mostly ups, with 1 profound down). We arrived at Derici after a long commute - a bus, a dolmus, and a taxi - which deposited us on the steps of the hotel. Travelling with two pensioners, we were keen for the days travel to be over, and for the hotel to be a good one to end our trip. And were we ever grateful that it was!
Though Derici is obviously an older hotel, it is clean, and well-furbished. The aircon was included in the price of the room, which was brilliant, since daily temperatures hovered around 40C every day we were there. Breakfast was also included in our room rate, which was the usual Turkish spread (breads, eggs, hot meats and fruit, muesli, honey, jams, yoghurt, as well as coffee, juice and tea).
There was a pool on the roof, which got quite full during the day, but was quiet first thing in the morning, and the hotel was within walking distance of a few of the municipal beaches. Since the sea water is deliciously refreshing, we spent far more time in the sea than the pool.
Derici is on the beachfront, with endless views of the rolling sea, and the huge numbers of cruise ships that come in. Kusadasi is also a great place to take a ferry (which runs daily) to the Greek island of Samos, which we did and can recommend).
Derici Hotel was brilliant. Staff were helpful and kind, and there was wifi (which was supposed to work all over the hotel, but we could only receive signal in the lobby). It's also close to the maze of shops and restaurants which buzzes at night.
Highly recommended.

Location is everything with this hotel: it's located at the beach at the heart of the city. There will be a short walking distance to everywhere which will make for a much nicer stay. The view was spectacular and we especially enjoyed the sunsets. The hotel itself is adequate, but nothing special. The rooms do not provide a map, the Internet did not work (room 415, august 2012), the showers are fixed into one position, Olympic Games were not available in rooms and ear-plugs may be necessary because of the traffic noise. Overall, we did enjoy our stay.

We having been coming to this hotel for 5 years now, sometimes twice a year. So what does that say. The staff are excellant and always willing to help. We were there the first week of October for the second time this year and the room we were in had been refurbished. Yes carpets and curtains could have been changed but it was brill. We also took our step dad with us who has never been to Kusadasi but has had 18 holidays in Turkey. His comments ' best hotel he has every stayed in.' Already planning for next year.

We have just returned from our stay at the Derici hotel in Kusadasi. We couldn't have asked for a more central hotel. It was right across from the lovely Agean sea and small beach. lovely views of the harbour and port where all the big cruise liners come in every day. The hotel was lovely and clean, rooms clean, sheets changed three times in a week, clean towels every day. The furniture was a bit dated and used but this was only a minor detail. Staff were friendly and helpful. We requested a sea view room but didn't get one as none were left but then after being there a few days we realised it would have been too noisey on the front anyway. Breakfast is continental but you could pay for a full breakfast, bacon etc. Would reccomend it to anyone, really enjoyed it.

Room Tip: rooms on the back are quieter as noise from dolmuses and cars pipping their horns every few minutes...

This hotel, was right in the centre of Kusidasi in the marine or harbour area, from the balcony could see cruise ships. No complaints at all . The staff were all friendly and helpful - the rooms were clean and comfortable. The only complaint I have is the breakfast, which was to my mind not a four star breakfast. Breakfast was definitely poor.

Room Tip: request a room with a sea- view
