Reviewed May 20, 2013

We stayed only one night at this hotel. At first sight, we loved it: an architecture reminiscent of 1950s-1960s, lovely gardens, small but renovated room, helpful staff, free wifi... all that a one night accomodation requires and more... But with the dinner time, our impressions started to alter: the restaurant has nothing to do with the rest of the hotel, a modern but tasteless place, no windows... though the hors d'oeuvres served as open buffet were delicious, the main course was barbeque and the whole smell and smoke of the preparations were inside the restaurant... By the time the dinner was over, our hair, clothes, everything on us were smelling meat and smoke.... the experience in our room at night was much worse: first all of, I did not sleep in a bed that was worst than this one and this is not an exaggeration... In the morning, I felt like I slept in an armchair or on the floor, all my body was aching and so were the remaining 20+ members of our group. But, worse than that was the smell.. the smell of manure was unbearable, it was as if we were staying on a farm, inside the barn itself... I kept smelling the sheets thinking maybe a shephard or someone in the animal business slept in the room before us and the smell remained... It was extremely unconfortable and disqusting... and in the morning we learnt the reason, as all other entry level room guests had the same complaint: they had just used manure at the garden (to make sure plants and flowers grow better!!!!). I really felt sorry that our experience turned out to be so negative as the place itself was lovely.... It's unfortunately a good example of bad management....

This was a no frills type place. The room was big, quiet and the beds were comfortable. The bathroom was clean but the water was warm at best. The food was nothing to write home about but wasn't horrible either. Pretty much an average hotel with average amenities. If you are looking for a hotel to hang out in you can find other places that might be a bit more eclectic but this hotel defiantly serves its purpose if you are ok with a basic place to rest your head after trekking some ruins.

The hotel is Close to the city center. It is a Quiet and peaceful place. The Rooms are clean and nicely decorated. The staff is very kind and friendly.
We have dinner there and the food was average, could be better.

Good road stop, but not for a long stay. Most rooms seem to have been recently renovated. Pool and dinner by the pool was nice. Breakfast was disappointing, and there is a noisy meyhane next to the hotel. We had planned two nights but decided to leave it at one.

The Berksoy has received some poor reviews in previous years, but recent renovations have made it as nice as any place that we stayed during our recent trip to Turkey. The rooms are relatively large and nicely decorated, and the pool is larger than in most hotels, long enough for good lap swimming. They also had satellite TV with hundreds of channels; this was the only hotel in Turkey where we found this service. The breakfast buffet offered a bit less selection than some others, but it was still more than adequate. The lack of a lift is a potential problem, but the staff was good about helping with suitcases. There was a wedding around the pool in the evening that included loud music, but it didn't run too late. The hotel is located outside the main area of Bergama, but it's not a town with a lot of night life, so it doesn't really matter. The location is great if you plan to leave Bergama the next morning, as it's on the south side of town on the road that leads to the highways. Why pay double the price to stay in Izmir if you want to see the wonderful ruins of Pergamum? Stay in town and get to the site ahead of the tour groups driving in from out of town!

PS: The teleferique appears to be the only way to reach the Pergamum acropolis now--the road was blocked off--but it only cost 10 lira (about $5.50) for a round-trip, and the ride was worth every penny!

Room Tip: We stayed in room 308 and our friends in 309, and both were nice.

A group of 30 teachers stayed here including myself for 6 days and I found this hotel very nice. Very clean, nice bathroom and a nice room. Found the bed firm for my liking. This hotel does not have a lift if you have heavy luggage. A very good pool which we used.

We spent one night in this property and found it to be very good. The room was large and clean. The lighting was very good and overall had quite a modern feel to it. We ate in the hotel and our meal was excellent and very well priced. The service was very good. We asked for a wake-up call which we did not receive. There was an odor of cigarette smoke throughout the hotel but we were soon to find that this was very common throughout our tour of turkey. Most hotels do not have non-smoking rooms.
