“Pinch me!...I'm staying at such a cool art hotel.”
Reviewed August 6, 2012

This is a gem of a hotel on the Bodrum Peninsula. With only 12 rooms, an incredible art collection, warm welcoming staff, and gourmet food this hotel feels more like a large private villa than a small hotel. If your idea of luxury is not loud and garish, but rather quiet and refined you will be right at home at Cass Dell'Arte. The rooms are sophisticated and modern with very contemporary furniture and appointments. As is always the case, the people make or break it, and Feyza is sooo cool, taking care of all your needs personally.

Its proximity to downtown Bodrum is also a plus. Close enough to visit easily but not too close.

Room Tip: If you can stay in a ocean view room you will not be disappointed. The fish restaurant next door is...

We had a perfect family holiday with our 2 boys (aged 6 and 8). The hotel staff in the kids club were great. So was the wonderful area where the kids could make very nice artwork using acrylic colours painting on stones, canvas etc.
The beach bar had very nice food and very friendly staff.
Great areas to sunbath, never needed to get up early in the morning to reserve a bed as there were lots available.
The breakfast was lovely and tranquil sitting outside watching the sea.
We will for sure be back soon.

Room Tip: Ask for ground floor to get a terrace as some rooms do not have balcony.

This is a very convenient location close to downtown Bodrum and most of the other parts of Bodrum you d like to discover. As new parents with a 14 month old we r experiencing the ups & downs of traveling with a baby. And its a whole different kind of vacation... so me and my husband are very pleased with how it worked out for us and our baby. the grass area by the beach is perfect for ur little one who just started to take her first steps. Friendly staff is trying to make your stay as smooth as possible.Rooms are very comfortable. mini club is there for ur kids to create their own first art works.

When you walk into the hotel it feels like walking into a small museum: the architecture and the decoration are truly amazing, with plenty of modern art (and some old pieces too). I believe that it used to be an art collector's house which was adapted (very minor changes) to be a very small hotel. The rooms are fantastic: minimalist decor, auping beds, lots of space, great bathrooms. Breakfast is very good and the bay where the hotel is located is beautiful. There is a private pier where you can admire the place and a beautiful swiming pool surrounded by paintings (swiming there almost feels intimidating!). If you are looking for a truly exclusive place with VIP treatment look no further. It is not too close to Bodrum (15min to the city), but taxis were always available.

We recently (June 2012) stayed at Casa Dell'Arte near Bodrum. Simply stated, it was an outstanding experience. We stayed in a garden room and it was very comfortable, spacious (a suite) and clean, a good value. But, what made this place outstanding were the beautiful outdoor spaces and the incredible service. The wonderful art was integrated throughout, making Casa Dell'Arte unique. In addition to staying at the hotel, we chartered the Casa Dell'Arte I, a 28 meter Turkish sailing yacht. As with the hotel, the yacht was beautiful, stylish and comfortable and just like the hotel, the service and food were spectacular. We enjoyed all aspects of our stay and cruise with CDA.

Casa Dell'Arte is a wonderful hotel and is locate in a quiet and beautiful suburb of Bodrum. We had a beautiful room over looking the sea. The hotel is full of original art work and it is like staying inside a museum. The city of Bodrum wonderful, we spent one whole day just walking around. This hotel was very highly recommended by our travel consultants, Travel Atelier Travel Agency.

Room Tip: get a room that overlooks the sea

I recently stayed her with my husband and children. We had a fantastic stay but it there were some flaws. It was beautiful setting but there a few things that they could improve in to bring it up to the next level.

Pros:

Beautiful setting
Staff is very friendly and helpful
Nice intimate relaxing setting
Food is consistent and very good
There is comfortable seats and bedding by the water
Clean
Good music by the beach
The adult bedrooms and facilities were spectacular
Great for adults or children
Outdoor restaurant was beautiful and deck was also beautiful
Nice bar by the beach

Cons:

The family rooms are just okay. They are dark and don't have sufficient lighting. Bathrooms are not at all impressive. No bathtub, inexpensive shower and fixtures. It is certainly isn't going to WOW you. Barely enough lighting for women to put on their makeup. Our room was in need of painting touch up and it was missing a picture hanging from the wall. The family rooms are definitely not 5 star.

There is only turn down service if you request it.

Although the food was very good, the menu never changed nor were there any specials. This was a bit boring for us because there is only 2 other restaurants to choose from in the area.

We did not rent a car so we could not see the other towns except for Bodrum. The taxis are very expensive so we did not venture out. Having said this, I felt like it was a bit remote.

There are sections and areas of the hotel that are in need of minor touch ups.

The door to the room was very difficult to lock and unlock. It had a key but it was very difficult to insert and turn so we kept it unlocked.

The hotel next store had kayaks and paddle boats. My children used them but it would be nice if Casa Dell Arte had some for their guests since there were a lot of children.

All in all we had a great experience. I would recommend it but beware that the family rooms will not be up to everyones standards.
