Reviewed January 23, 2013

We go to marmaris at least three times every year and have stayed in many hotels throughout. We stayed at london blue last august, which was a different experience as were just to club aida! however the location of london blue is great with a less than 5 minute walk to the beach. We had ate here on previous holidays and owner Violet has always been very welcoming so we decided to stay here to try it out. On arrival we were ab it unsure as the door handle didnt seem very sure, which made us abit iffy, also the safety deposit boxes in reception wasnt very appealing to us. However before we had read previous reviews and very apprehensive about staying here anyway. The rooms are very basic and the aircon isnt great but its really only somewhere to sleep. The rooms were cleaned twice in our week, and towels were changed once, but we had brought our own so it wasnt much of a problem! We didnt eat much in london blue but when we did the food was great with quick service, the staff would rather u ate here if you stay here but i think every turkish hotel is the same. staff were always extremley friendly. Although we arnt staying here this summer we will continue to eat here and visit regulary!

I stayed at London Blue in december and I can honestly say it is one of the best hotels in marmaris. The staff where so friendly and would do anything for you, nothing was too much trouble. The rooms are spotless as newly renovated and come complete with a fridge and tv, the showers was gleaming i could tell it was newly fitted. The cleaner is lovely and always cleans the room to the highest standards. The food is amazing and the chef will make you anything you ask for, also they do room service. I can not recommend this hotel enough I went on my own and the staff even out of season where so friendly and made my stay at London Blue very enjoyable. If your going to marmaris stay at this hotel.......

recently stayed at this hell hole. 6 of us in total so we had 3 rooms, putting the 3 rooms together u wouldnt have had 1 decent 1. no tv, fridge, kettle or even a bin between them. windows filthy, no shower curtains, not that that mattered because showers very tempremental & only worked when they wanted 2. when i go on holiday i allways enjoy 1 lazy day in the pool, yeah right, the pool thats covered over & tables & chairs put on top, when i ask why was told it was end of season, but all other hotels still useing pools. booked & paid 4 B&B, great if u want olives 4 breakfast, but if u want a nice bit of bacon get your wallet out because u have 2 pay. bed was old & very hard, pillows like a bag of marbles. im far from a snob, but id pitch a tent on the beach b4 ever stepping foot in this hell hole again. only good thing, there were no cockroaches here, clever things had more sense.

My partner and I had originally booked into another hotel but were "diverted" to the London Blue at the last minute. We accepted the change on account of the short notice and partly because of the a literature accompanying the alteration email.

Well, here goes:

The London Blue has NOT been recently renovated.

The pool is covered over to provide extra tables for the restaurant,

The shower/WC had mould (and there was no shower curtain.

The mattress was ancient.

On a positive note the staff were grand lads, except for the one who, as some Turkish friends said, served us with a smile but said something different in Turkish!

I suggest you look at the attached photographs before booking into this "renovated" hotel,

Upon arriving at the hotel everyone was so friendly and really helpful. When we got into the room it was basic but clean exactly what you expect. You get what you pay for. Hotel room had everything that was needed and I couldnt have asked for more. Rooms were cleaned frequently and well and cleaner was very friendly. Restaurant food was absolutely lovely the breakfast was perfect and at dinner time you have a choice of the usual restaurant food or the chinese. Chinese is really nice and we ate here everyday. Staff could not do enough for you always smiling, friendly and chatty. I don't understand why there are so many bad reviews for this hotel. Please IGNORE all bad reviews stay here and you will see why it is a lovely, cheap place to stay. Just as a note on some of the negative reviews previous to mine - of course the pool is closed it is now not in the summer and why would they open the pool when no one is using it - there is pools all around only 2 minutes away that you can use. As for the comment about someone 'forcing themselves on someone' I really cannot believe this, I have been for years to this hotel and know everyone, even so why where they in your room in the first place (unless i misunderstand your comment?). All of the staff are good friends now, and everyone I speak to who was here says they will always come back to the hotel and so shall we. As for 'not being safe for girls by themselves' I saw lots of girls here by themselves or in small groups and they were not hassled once, it must be what people do to attract attention that makes them be hassled.
