We stayed 3 nights in March. It is a very welcoming pension. The rooms are very clean and comfortable. Breakfast is good consisting of hard boiled eggs, tomatoes, cucumbers, cheese, bread, olives, juice, tea/coffee, etc.... The free Wi-Fi worked well. The down side is that the pension is located very close to a mosque and the dog likes to chime in at the 5AM prayer. While this may not bother some it was the difference between average and very good for me.

We stumbled upon the Anzac while trying to go to another pension down the street during the off season which was closed. We found the place to be so welcoming that we came back a second night, disrupting Sandi from her football watching in town, but she came right back to let us in. The rooms are very clean, AC/heat working well, we got a balcony with a great view both times, they have a wonderful "instant hot" or something appliance on the shower that gave us fantastic hot water in the cold nights. Sandi even gave us her hair dryer and shampoo because we were a bit underprepared, expecting to stay at the other pension. You also get a very nice Turkish breakfast - eggs, tomatoes, cucumbers, cheese, bread, olives, jam, tea/coffee. Free wifi. Honestly, the room was great but we just liked Sandi so much that it added to the entire experience. Staff is great - very good bargain all around. We would definitely go back!!! THANKS FOR THE HOSPITALITY!!!

My friend and I )both 25) stayed at Sandra's place for 3 nights and absolutely loved it. After nearly four months of travelling around Europe, we can safely say that Kusadasi and Golden Bed was one of our favourite places. It's well kept and cosy. A wonderful retreat away from the Turkish hustle and bustle.

Sandra's traditional Turkish breakfast is tasty and the perfect way to start the day. We miss the jam! The rooftop balcony is the best place to sit back, enjoy a cool drink and relax after a great day exploring.

Sandra has plenty of advice for you too - she knows Kusadasi and can recommend great restaurants, the best beaches, and public transport info.

Ask for a room overlooking the ocean and you're in for a treat.

Kusadasi is also an amazing place too.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view of the ocean.

If you are looking for a wonderful place to stay while visiting Kusadasi, look no further than Sandra's pension! It was like we were staying in the home of a good friend.  

Sandra's place was exactly what we were looking for.  We had a comfortable room with an amazing view of the city.  Our room was rustic, inviting and a wonderful place to rest our tired feet after a long day of exploring the city and nearby sights.  Sandra made us feel completely welcome and comfortable from the moment she met us at the front door. 

Also, it was in a great location in Kusadasi......VERY short walk to the city center, the water front and many great restaurants.  The steep hill back to her place will help you burn off any unwanted calories.  It is in a non-touristy part of town so we felt like we were able to escape all of the noise of the city and submerge ourselves in the local flavor of the neighborhood.  It was extremely quiet at night and also very safe.  

The best part was the amazing views of the water and city from her roof-top patio.  Each morning, Sandra would greet us with a delicious breakfast, along with great conversation and recommendations.  

Most importantly, Sandra is the quintessential hostess!  Very responsive, very sweet and a pleasure to meet.  She met us as planned and made our VERY early check-out hassle free.   She got up with us at 4:00am with a smile and even made us sandwiches for our long journey.  She provided a lot of great recommendations for things to do and places to eat and went out of her way to make us feel at home.  She helped make airport transfers easy, including sharing a little known secret that AtlasJet provides a free shuttle to other cities when you fly their airline.  She also recommended a wonderful English-speaking driver (and friend) named Fevzi who made himself available whenever we needed him despite it being a national holiday.  He was extremely friendly and informative.

We can't thank Sandra enough for helping to create the perfect ending to our long vacation! Thanks for everything, Sandra!
