Tripolis Hotel
Ranked #11 of 28 Hotels in Pamukkale
Reviewed January 4, 2014

We stayed one night at this hotel and I must say that after the reviews I had read and given it is a 4-star hotel, I expected more.
Rooms: The rooms are distributed in different buildings, there is no elevator. The room was clean and there was a fridge and a water heater for preparing tea. The view toward the mountain was indeed stunning. However, there was neither complimentary bottle water nor complimentary toiletries (only a dispenser for either shower gel or shampoo – that was not defined). The room was not very spacious; there was only a very slippery bathtub.
Food: Both breakfast and dinner were quote bland. No explanation of what each food is (especially frustrating when you are a vegetarian). No egg station.
Entertainment: The hotel is in the middle of nowhere and Pamukkale itself is seriously not the heart of entertainment. Prices for drinks at the hotel were quite high so if you want to have something to drink and don’t need to spend the evening in the uninspiring bar, buy a bottle of wine beforehand.
Concerns smokers: Smoking is not allowed in any inside space in Turkey. Unfortunately, the hotel has not made any efforts to see to at least assisting smokers not to feel uncomfortable. There is only one bar-table (no chairs), right outside the reception, with a heater – too bad the hotel has not attempted for instance to set up some semi-enclosed space with some tables and chairs, as can be found for instance in Izmir.
If we were to visit Pamukkale again, I’d probably look around for another hotel.

This hotel was great! The beds were the most comfortable of my entire trip, the food in the restaurant was great, the view from the (freezing cold) swimming pool was great, looking up at the Pamukkale travertines. The hotel had a great layout, and the grounds were gorgeous and lush. Also, for those that aren't keen for the ice bath that was the outside swimming pool, there is also a fantastic indoor heated pool!

Only negative was the lack of restaurants nearby, but the hotel does a great feed which was sufficient for the single night I was there.

the rooms were clean (which is my main hotel criteria), and the thermal pool was lovely, but, there are these really annoying sensor lights in the passageways that only sense you when you are approaching your room and not when you are leaving your room.

Large, comfortable and reasonably sound-proof rooms. Ideally located for visiting Pamukkale. The heated spa pool is very enjoyable.
Big downside is the restaurant: it is very noisy indeed, overlit and extremely warm when full. The restaurant itself may be hot, but the food certainly isn't - mostly luke warm. Poor choice of food and not that great. Breakfast buffet also mediocre and eggs cold.

Well located for visit to Pamukkale. 3X3 storey blocks with one staircase to each block but no lifts or fire escapes. Our second floor room was very large and comfortable with velux windows. Lower floors had normal windows and balconies. Good dinner but breakfast only adequate.

The room was not ready late afternoon, no lights in the lounge or electric point for the kettle. No light bulb in bathroom or above the bed and food was average. the price of drinks was twice what we had paid else where and the service in the foyer was very poor. We had trouble locking the doors to the outside so in all the worst hotel we stayed at in turkey. It was too far from the shops to walk to.

Room Tip: Would not stay there.

What a nice location. Great pool. That was the best to say about this hotel :-(
Food boring, breakfast you had to be there a 7 am to be sure to get warm eggs or any vegetables. Waiters took our plates before we even had swallowed the last bite. The eatingarea could hold 300 people, and it did!! So much noise and overlighted room. Rooms boring and NO fitness room. One would expect that in a 4* hotel!
