“The short version: Stay Away!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 20, 2014

Even the friendly, helpful, hospitable staff cannot redeem this shoddy, cheapskate dump. Its one of those outdated hotels where they give you one key per room - To me that's a bad start.
The rooms are spacious and clean, but nothing works - The airconditioner makes all the right noises, but that's it! The toilet flushed most of the time, with a lot of coaxing. The repair job on the shower head didn't work, so it sprays water in every direction, with barely enough water spraying forward. The beds are old and hard. We opened the windows in the evening to let some cool air in and were suffocated by gusts of smoke from a nearby chimney.
The dining room!! Everything is packaged down to the long-life shelf milk served at room temperature. At breakfast the trays of food, including pickles, cold cuts sliced cheeses are removed from the refrigerator, partially unwrapped in order to save them the expense of changing the cellophane wrapping from one day to the next. Ketchup and Mayonaise are served in their original containers right off the supermarket shelf. The food selection, quality and presentation all exclaim: Cheap!
They have a nice gym. Open from 10 to 12 in the morning. The pool is closed....
The free wifi is very complicated. You have to register your passport number at the desk. This becomes your password. There is a two stage entry process, so your receiver will indicate that you're connected, but you're not. Each time you open an application you discover that you're not actually connected. So you go through the whole process of connecting - and receive all your mails and missed viber calls and whatsap messages -  and then 10 minutes later, you are quietly disconnected again!
The elevators are so slow that I used the staircase up to the fourth floor on a number of occasions. If you wait for the elevator on your floor, which is not unusual, you need to keep moving around because the lights go off if there is no movement for 15 seconds!
Bring your own hair conditioner.
Good points: Excellent location - You step off the ferry or train, cross the street and you're there.
The staff - In true Turkish tradition very helpful and hospitable

I stayed in Eken Prestige for three weeks.
Pros: good location, kind staff, good food.
Cons: rooms are not super clean, no power outlet close to bed, very loud parties on top floor until past midnight on fridays and saturdays. You will need ear plugs if you are not OK with staying awake until 1 am.

Stayed here whilst working on the Bandirma power station construction.

I was told by other contractors this is as good as it gets. Located across the ferry port (Pray you don't get caught in rough seas and have to turn back)

Food was OK, service was good. Friendly staff, nice bar area and dining room. Rooms large but nothing to write home about. Functional and basic.

Nothing to complain about, no problems during my stay here.

The port area is nice to take a walk.

Location of the hotel is very nice.Close to the center, just front of the port... Rooms are relatively big but this is all. Rooms are smell like mold and moisture. Bathrooms don't have shower cabins only carpets. And somehow this curtain grabs your body because of the air current in the bathroom. Besides, the tv is too small (especially for a 4 star hotel) and the satellite is insufficient.
Performance/price ratio is low...
