“basic but cleanish”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 13, 2010

Views from hotel balcony beautiful. Staff polite, bedding clean. Maid service most days.
Food is not very appetising, slimy tomatoes and radishes sat in water dont know for how long, very repetitive. Breakfast cereal and bread seemed stale. Be prepared to dine out.
Hotel situated on hill, not suitable for those with walking difficulties or heart problems. Be prepared to pay for taxis.

Alcoholic drinks seemed watered down only decent drink was the beer.
Sunbeds difficult to find round the pool as already taken by other guests by towels placed
on them by 8am in the morning. Pool very clean.
Kusadasi itself is buzzing and turkish people are lovely, dont let this review put you off going to Turkey, we still had a great time.

DON'T take any notice of the bad reviews unless you are looking for a wild swinging party hotel!

If you are looking for a cheap, clean , basic quiet hotel a short walk from town, with good Turkish food....cold beer...fantastic pool and friendly helpful staff then look no further than this.

It is not a child friendly place to go with endless entertainment, but a great place for a couple like us looking for a quiet week in the sun.

Would love to go back....we will go there again.

So summary is....great for couples.....not for families with kids that need constant entertaining!.

I am a British expat living and working in Istanbul. We have decided to spend our family vacation in Kusadasi last summer. We heard great things about it being the pearl of the Aegean coast. We booked through a local travel agent to stay at the Golden day hotel.

I must say this hotel offers a fantastic location across the marina, spacious room large enough to accommodate a family of four with amazing views of the harbor and the landmark pigeon island. We spent a lovely week here. The hotel offers an all inclusive concept and you are getting very decent food and service for what you are paying. My wife and I disagree with some of the unfair reviews I came across on your site where some other British vacationers complain about the lack of variety in food and drinks. They must realize that you pay hundred of Euros in even the most basic hotels in Europe and get no service whereas in this beautiful hotel with food and drinks served through day and night you are getting great value for money. Remember you are in Turkey, not the UK and you should take into account local customs and food culture.

Our room was lovely with standard lay out and large balcony overlooking the marina. We spent most of the day lounging by the fantastic pool area: I must say the pool in this hotel is one of the best I have seen and I have traveled to quite a few places!!!
The hotel is conveniently located on top of a hill and offers the walking distance convenience into town, alternatively you can take a taxi from outside the hotel. Taxis are quite cheap in Kusadasi.

MUST SEE: You must visit Ephesus, which is an ancient Roman city near Kusadasi and is one of the seven wonders of the world. Also, make sure you go to the Ladies Beach a few times, it is by far the best beach in town and not too far away from the hotel. You can take a shuttle or taxi from the hotel.

All in all, it was a great stay for the money we paid and we would certainly go back to Kusadasi and Goldenday hotel. Remember, this is Turkey what is offered at the hotels is predominantly Turkish cuisine and if you are not open to trying Turkish food then you should stay home.

I stayed at the Golden Day Hotel on an all inclusive basis in the last week of June/1st week of July 2009 with my sister aged 20, brother aged 6 and mother. We chose this hotel for the location, price and the view and also becasue the websites said it had a childrens play area.

Lots of people have complained about the steep hill. I am not that fit bit i didnt find it too bad also you can get a taxi or bus from town and be dropped of next to the hotel so you dont have to walk and it's very cheap to do this.

There was not much of a play area (just a swing, slide and seasaw on the grass) but there was a park nearby and when we were at the hotel the little one spent most of his time in the pool or running around with the other kids.

The food was basic but edible. and we had no complaints or though other guests did. We mainly eat breakfast and dinner in the hotel and were out for lunch on tours or at the beach.

Do not book any tours through the hotel rep as she will rip you off. We met a lovely man called Dave who booked the boat trip through her and was very disapointed when he heard thatr not only did we pay less when we booked through a company in Ladies Beach but the food and entertainment was much bigger and better. Also be where that the Nomadic Safari includes a very boring and long trip to the train museum and i wouldn't call the thing that we wemt on a tractor. The best bit was the donkey ride.

We would go bad to Kusadasi in the future but maybe not to the same hotel as we like to travel around. We feel that it was good value for money and you get what you pay for.

beautifull country, great view of the harbour from our bedroom. but shame our bedroom wasn't cleaned properly: only beds made! Went down and complained only to be told manager was not avalible and cleaner had gone home. the next day i bumped into the manager while picking a fig on their garden only to be shouted at infront of other guest "GET OFF MY GARDEN, ALL YOU DO IS COMPLAIN!" i find this very unprefesional for a manager who does not take his guests complaints seriously. food was nice but not so much selection for children. Wasn't any entertainment for children besides music. snackbar was not available as if you wanted an icecream or crisps you would have to pay for them even though we were all inclusive. would recomend the Ephesus but do not book with the rep as it is too expensive book yourself. would recomend comin back but to a better hotel star rating i would say would be 1 1/2! beware when bookin they do not have a seperate bedroom for children, you are all lumbered in the same bedroom.

Just returned from a week at The Golden Day Hotel.Think 1970's Hilton and you would be about right.
Positives :
great location overlooking marina,with great sunsets.Free aircon,Staff friendly with us.Clean.Shopping for "genuine fakes"at the Wednesday market great fun.
Negatives :
Food & drink limited ,usually luke warm,DANGEROUS !nothing for kids.No entertainment(one 10 min show per week).Extra charges for table tennis ,pool.
Extra charge to keep room and use facilities after 12-00.£15/person or you have to leave the hotel until flight pick up time.Adaland water park worth a visit but expensive.
Summary:
Met some great people & had a good holiday on the whole.Haggle over everything!Take Euros & Lira.A crispy new £10 note opens plenty of doors.Izmir airport expensive £10 for 3 cokes.
Will go back to Kusadasi ,great place,but in a better hotel.
