Ferah Pension
Ranked #62 of 137 Specialty Lodging in Fethiye
Reviewed July 19, 2011

We absolutely loved this place. The family who run it are incredbly welcoming and extreamely helpful (they booked us onto a wonderul tour that we wouldn't have found ourselves). Monica's sexy were delisious and the breakfasts were really great standard Turkish offerings (toast, cereal, condiments, tomatoes, cucumbers and feta). We did not have any problems with Ferahs at all. Our room was lovely, with an amazing view of the ocean and I thought it was well priced. Washing is pretty exy (20TL) but out of desperation we got a load done and it all came back cleaner than ever! The pool is small but we didn't use it anway.. There are so many other wonderful things to do in Fethiye!

I definately recomend this place! Its a true Turkish family run hostel!

Room Tip: Splurge and get the double room.. Great view!

On the upside, our room had a lovely view of the Fethiye harbour.

However, we were surprised that the brochure advert was so outdated and wrong: swimming pool was a concrete tub, the turkish bath did not exist, and the 8 Euro room was 70TL.

Breakfast was the biggest disappointment: we had come to rely on our first meal to see us through until dinner and so it was a shock when the two of us were offered one small piece of cheese and last week's tomatoes, along with the usual cukes, olives, tea, and bread.

Room Tip: Front of the pension, not the back

I LOVE Ferah Pension (also known as Monica's Place.) We were immediately welcomed here by Monica herself and her husband, Tuna. Monica is super fun and loves all things sexy (we were put in her "sexiest" room which had an incredible view of the Fethiye marina). She even throws sexy dinners, which unfortunately we could not experience because it was only April.
The hostel is super funky, with the main area having all of Monica's portraits covering all the walls, cats and dogs roaming around, and the open air garden all around you.
Tuna hooked us up with taxis and set us up for paragliding. He also served us a complimentary breakfast in the morning, which was great.

I really hope to return here! At least to make it to a "sexy" dinner : )

We were fooled by the LP review and too tired to start looking somewhere else. This place has no real warmth and the "stunning glass-enclosed terrace" is actually just a table with nice plants but covered by cheap asbestos roof (notoriously carcinogen). The hotel is hidden away and has a pathetic little sign, so that we had to drive around quite a lot to find it. We were offered apple tea when we arrived and we thought "nice!" but within 5 minutes a guy showed up to propose his para-diving services which we had no interest for. Everything was ominously priced with a label, I even caught a glimpse of a laundry service being offered for the outrageous equivalent of 10 euros (this is a backpacking place!).
Room was clean but very ugly with a shower built inside. We had to look hard for hot water because the pressure was next to zero. The bedding consist of a sort of towel which cannot cover the whole body and a blanket in which I had a horrible sleep.
Fethiye is overpriced and this is a problem, but this hostel really does not deserve your money.

By the time we stayed at Ferah Pension, we had been on the road for a couple of months already and so had become accustomed to the gap between the flowery Lonely Planet recommendations and the reality of the lodgings. This was a new low.

The bathrooms are a barely cordoned off toilet cubicle with a shower head attached above it. The combined toilet/shower arrangement is not unusual in budget acommodation in Turkey, however, in this bathroom you showered directly over the toilet bowl and sink - the corner was claustrophobically small.

Breakfast is dire. The portions are mean. Charging for coffee is really an insult, the boiled eggs weren't, they were raw. The items (polony, jam and margarine plastic containers, cucumber, tomato) were the cheapest and nastiest components of this type of breakfast I have come across. In that respect, the meanness of the servings was a blessing.

Lonely Planet describes Ferah as having a 'stunning glass enclosed patio'. In reality this is a PVC covered, mosquito trap verandah with the distracting display on every surface of the hostesses artworks - mostly nude women with angel wings. These at least provide some humour.

The location, as mentioned in other reviews, is incovenient. You need to jump onto the dolmus for 8-10 minutes to get into town, and there's a short but steep climb once you get off, be warned if you have a heavy backpack.

Our room was within a sort of plywood outhouse plonked atop the building below, with a jerry-rigged rickety staircase leading up to it.

On the positive side, the room was clean, and the views of the sea were nice.

My wife and I stayed in this pension in lovely Fethiye for about 3 days. The pension owners (Monica and Tuna) were some of the nicest people we met in a country reknowned for its hospitality and were extraordinarily helpful with advice about the area (especially on how to avoid being overcharged for boat cruises and day excursions). The central court area is a wonderful garden setting, all rooms are decorated with Monica's paintings and are very clean and airy. Great place, great people.

I was only on planning to stay in Fethiye for a couple of nights but ended up staying for 4 nights as I felt completely at home after arriving in Ferah Pension. When I arrived a long bus journey, this place was not so crowded but when I left, the place was packed with travelers. This place has a nice and very relaxing atmosphere. It was also mentioned by fellow traveler whom I met here as well. Especially, if you are already traveling other parts and would like to rest to regain engergy before going on to where ever you are heading to. This is a great place. The owner, Tuna and Monica make sure you are happy at this place and they give a good advice to vicinity attractions. In addition, it was also nice to have hot shower available 24/7 as many hostels do not have this luxury. What a nice place, it was! I both liked the town of Fethiye and Ferah Pension.
