“Loved this Place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 1, 2008

OMG... Such a friendly place to stay made you feel welcome.. All the staff were lovely Timmy made me chuckle loads chucked me in the pool enough times..But all the staff were lovely.. Rooms were basic but good enough to stay in and had air conditioning which we need as we were there in the heat wave.. It's right in the middle and easy to get to beach i recommend this hotel.. Im hopefully going back this year 2008 with my boyfriend who has never been there..

Stayed in the middle of september with a few family members and a friend of mine and i have to say we picked a good place to stay! Really friendly atmosphere and very easy going staff, felt very welcome and the staff were very accomodating. The rooms were small and basic but nice and clean.
Great location, just down the road from the habour which is full of great night life and tons of shops so if you get bored of sitting around the pool you can have a wonder about the streets of bodrum!
I would definately go back!

stayed at the kilavuz first two weeks august 2007. hotel was lovely and clean and the staff were great and would do anything for you .a couple of times the music went a bit loud but as soon as you asked it was turned down. near to all the night life and beach. if you wanted to stay in the hotel for meals they were exellent. the pool was a nice size and a lot of the time we had the pool to ourselves as most went down to the beach we found the hotel very peacfully and really relaxing and all the guest got on well with it been a small hotel and often would come back after a night out and have a drink together me and my husband will definatley be going back linda and alan taylor newcastle

Kilavuz is such a nice hotel, the staff made our holiday, I love Mahmut and Emre and Hakon and Timmy, they really are great people and made us feel like part of the family, I really miss them now we've come home. I would recommend this hotel to anyone who wants to meet some Turkish people. The family who own the Hotel are really lovely as well, I don't normally go back to the same place but I think I'll have to go back to see them all again. Thanks for making our holiday special guys!!!

Booked this on the spur of the moment as I and the family had a week where we could go away together. After reading the reviews here I wasn't sure if I would like it and as we arrived at 05:00 the street looked a bit ropey. When we got up next day though we were pleasantly surprised. With just 15 rooms the hotel is never crowded and there were only five rooms occupied for most of the week. The pool was great and you could always get a sun lounger. Room was basic but clean and the breakfast was served by the poolside. Great location just a few minutes from the beach area- but quiet enough to feel apart from the bustle. The staff are absolutely brilliant! Timmy, Mohammed Emre and the rest were the kindest people you could meet- as are all the people we met in Turkey.
Book with confidence!

Just spent some time at Otel Kilavuz, Bodrum. The hotel is very small - about ten rooms, but contains a small pool and a poolside bar. There is also a bar and restaurant fronting onto Attaturk Street, a main thoroughfare from which the seafront is just a few minutes walk. The hotel itself is in a quiet area, but just a few minutes walking distance from all the nightlife.

The owners - the Kilavuz family - are very friendly and helpful. The rooms are basic ensuite, but of a 3 star standard and are very clean and tidy. The food is all home cooked and with a good range from Italian, snacks and mediterranean to traditional Turkish specialities.

The hotel does not have a website, but can be contacted by email or telephone. All in all, I would recommend the hotel highly, especially at about £6 for a double B & B!

Myself and my other half stayed at this hotel in July 2006 and abso loved it. I found that it was in a fairly quiet area but within easy reach for all our needs. I agree Boris was a top guy, very friendly and laid back with a no problem attitude, Timmy was timid but also a nice guy and cooked lovely meals. It was a last minute cheap getaway so we just hoped for the best and that we got. No complaints whatsoever. Overall a great holiday will defo go back there again. If you read all the reviews on hotels & holidays you would probably never go away again. Try it you might surprise yourself.
