3 nights in July 2012 and we felt so at home. The staff went to great lengths to make us comfortable and the hotel was clean and charming. I watched one of the employees climb up on the roof to pick fresh apricots from the tree. They served them to us with every meal. Food was fresh and inventive and always seemed to have been prepared with care and attention to detail. We were there in the worst heat of July, and chose to eat in our room instead of at the shady outside tables. The staff never minded fetching our food upstairs and came back many times to see if we had all we needed. Other reviews which site a run-down property must have been from before a renovation because none of those complaints were pertinent when we were there. The pool was clean and cool. The owner gives the impression of a relaxed Grateful Dead hippie who just wants you to have a good time at his boutique hotel. Our bed was firm and comfortable. The air conditioning and ceiling fan more than cooled the room in 100 degree temperatures. Lots of great water pressure and hot water whenever we needed it. the shower is the standard floor drainage with a curtain pulled to protect the spray from soaking the rest of the bath. This is a bit of a surprise to people who have not travelled Turkey, but standard operating proceedure in Turkish hotels. Extra pillows and towels are provided with a smile. The chef enjoyed preparing special treats which he learned to make during a stint in Germany, and he often provided them at no charge beyond the basic meal cost. We decided to re-visit the same place on our way back home, and Erçument asked if we wanted him to hold the same room that we had stayed in a week earlier. Everyone was so accomodating. We met nice guests from Europe and Canada, and enjoyed brief chats with our neighbors. The entire courtyard is full of beautiful flowers. If you need luxury accomodations, this is not your hotel. But if you enjoy simple, clean, friendly beauty and a relaxed atmosphere, make the reservation!
