The Kelebek was by far one of the highlights of my visit to Turkey. Reception was extremely informative and helpful. The common areas are wonderful. Especially the "breakfast area" which had stunning views and comfy cushions. There was even a momma cat and 2 adorable kittens during my stay there. Breakfast is ample and varied. They even arranged for us to have coffee and food at 6am (even though breakfast doesn't officially begin until 8) since we had to leave early to catch a flight. The pool is also really nice, despite it's frigid temperatures. The hammam is gorgeous and I had a wonderful massage there. I honestly felt like I could languish at the hotel without leaving for days.
The only drawback for us was the noise level in the room. We were in room 2 which has a window that opens up onto the main path. It was hot out and there's no a/c so it would've been really nice to sleep with the window open. But it was literally like having people walking and talking in your room constantly. But when we shut the window it was stuffy and hot. Needless to say, it was an awful 2 nights sleep. Also, the bathroom doesn't have a door. I still give the hotel 5 stars because the receptionist went out of his way to try and relocate us and everything else was flawless. Also, it's probably a nonissue when the weather is cooler and you don't need to sleep with the window open.
ps. definitely head up to the breakfast are around 6am to see the balloons. Amazing!
