We were looking for a cheap and cheerful hotel room in Calis beach close to the pier so we could get a boat over to Sovalye island to meet friends.
We booked a double room a couple of days before arrival at a price of 93 TRY. Found the hotel easily enough, a few car park spaces at the rear of the hotel. Shabby looking at the back, gardens unkempt. The reception area was clean but bare. The front of the hotel faces the beach. Nobody at Reception when we arrived but somebody soon came (if nobody there check the corridor on left hand side leading to an agency at the front which is part of the hotel).
Checked in easily enough however a) we were offered twin beds as no double available despite one being available at the time of booking, b) the price had jumped to 120 TRY (due to the conversion rate apparently, even though I booked it in TRY) and c) payment was taken there and then, not on departure as per the booking. Not a good start!
Rooms are over 2 floors (1 and 2). Reception, an agency and La Casa di Mamma restaurant take up the ground floor. We were allocated room 103. Room key doubles as electricity key and the fitting was loose with exposed wires. Small, clean bedroom with air conditioning. Towels and mini toiletries bottles included. Furniture dated. Mini balcony overlooking the sea. Bathroom was horrible – dingy with dirty grouting, no shower cubicle or curtain, just a hole in the floor and no shower curtain so everything gets soaked. I didn’t use it. Wiring exposed in the light above the bathroom mirror.
Went down to breakfast just after 8. It’s served in the La Casa di Mamma restaurant. We must have been too early as the staff were still cleaning up from the night before! Drinks order was taken 10 mins later and arrived about 15 mins after that. Breakfast is continental style i.e. bread, sliced ham, cheese, olives, tomato, cucumber with a hard boiled egg and tea or (very strong) coffee.
The stay served its’ purpose but wouldn’t stay again.
