“good but busy hotel”
Reviewed October 18, 2013

This is a large hotel with lots of people and not very relaxing. The room was clean and comfortable and the room was huge. We had a view over the sea and it was very nice.

The breakfast room is full on business with two breakfast rooms catering to alot of people at once.

I would stay elsewhere only because I didn't feel relaxed in this hotel due to the number of people.

The room I stayed in at this hotel was spacious, bed and pillows were comfortable although bed linen were rather threadbare. But perhaps it was only in this room and the standard may have been better in others. The room came with the standard amenities that is found in most hotels. My room faced the ocean and swimming pool. It had a fantastic view of the Dardanelles. The room upon closer inspection was really dusty including floor and furniture.

The night I stayed at this hotel, there was a huge wedding reception by the pool side and so the music was really loud and as I'm a light sleeper it was very difficult to sleep through the merriment. Fortunately, the music and the party concluded around midnight.

There is a bar/club up on the top floor and from there you can go to the rooftop and catch the sun setting beyond the Dardanelles, lovely view from the top of this hotel.

The buffet breakfast and dinner here was delicious, my only complaint would be that the bottled water had things floating in them which I didn't notice until I poured it into my glass. When I requested another bottle of water, the waitstaff brought it promptly but there were the same floaters in the water. Upon closer inspection, I realised that the lid and seal was already opened even though the bottle was full, so the staff just re-filled their bottles. They did not provide us with fresh sealed bottles of water. I felt that this was poor for a five star hotel and rather dodgy.

Overall, this is a good hotel for a one night stay.

We stayed here for one night on a group tour of Turkey. Our room was lovely with a view of the Dardanelles and of the pool and manicured grounds. Both the room and bathroom were large and very clean. We had a drink up at the rooftop bar and we were the only ones there- amazing view. Buffet breakfast and dinner had a good selection of food. The hotel is out of town but has a supermarket and a few shops across the road. They have a no outside food and drinks policy but they don't search your bag. I did take a bottle of water in my bag but only because I drink heaps and didn't want to buy so many bottles at their inflated prices.

We had a great suite with a view of the Dardanelles and the pool below. The bed was spacious, but hard and no top sheet. The buffet dinner was not so good, except for the dessert. The breakfast was fine, except for the lack of good coffee. The wi-fi was great, the staff was courteous. This was not a 5 star hotel, even with all the amentities offered.

Room Tip: make sure you get view of Dardenelles.

Previous reviews of the Kolin had us somewhat concerned so it was a pleasant surprise when we checked in to this superbly located, well-appointed hotel on the shores of the Dardanelles. We were allocated a spacious corner suite with views both up and down this busy waterway. Whilst the room was spacious and well equippeed the decor was a little dark and uninspiring, however this did nothing to spoil our enjoyment of the Kolin. Whilst the hotel appears to specialise in large tour groups, possibly because it is the only quality accommodation in the area, we fouund trhe food and service to be of a high standard and the staff, whilst not overfriendly, were courteous and attentive. Highly recommened when travelling between Istanbul and the south west coast of Turkey.

Room Tip: Check in early to avoid the tour groups.
