We couldnt book the other hotels in Pamukkale in early September. Hence, we decided to book Sinter Terrase instead, and we are glad we did, because the other hotels, which were rated much better than Sinter Terasse ,were no closer to the Pamukkale Bus Station than Sinter Terasse, which meant that we actually saved more by staying in Sinter Terasse.
Sami and her husband are fine hosts, and they are responsive via email. The location of the hotel is such that it's a rather long walk from the Bus station to the hotels (abt 15 - 20 min walk), but then we realised that many of the hotels are actually along the same road as Sinter Terasse anyway.
The room is very good value for what we paid (26 EUROS), and the room given to us was large, (a double and single bed), even though it was only my husband and myself : )
Sami does a decent breakfast, and the fruits are excellent and fresh!
She also gave good advice, (e.g. when visiting the travertines, we need to take off our shoes!).
All in, this is a nice little quaint hotel, although it's a little far from the Pamukkale Bus Station.
However, if you are taking the dolmus from Pamukkale to Denizli, the dolmus actually stops along the main road, and the pansion is located inside a side road off this main road.
Some tips about Pamukkale:
If you are visiting the Travertines, and you are on your own and not with any tour company, please note that once you start walking up the travertines, there is actually no way down (or at least that's what we think).
We didnt realise this, and when we were done with the travertines, we had actually arrived at the top of the hills, which is where the Hierapolis is.
You actually exit the travertines and ruins by the side gate, which is near the museum.
(You can identify it because there's this huge steel structure near the museum!)
This is where all the tour buses wait to pick up their tourists.
It's a very long walk down (the taxi drivers told us that it's a 5 km hike downwards to the village, and wanted to charge us quite a bit!).
We started walking, but after a while, due to sheer exhaustion (it's really tiring walking up the travertines; it's slippery as the water flows along the calcified stone, and it's kinda rough, which makes my feet hurt after as while), we managed to hitch a ride downhill with one of those small tour buses which was making its way down to the village.
Out of gratitude, we gave the driver a 5 Lira tip : )
