Sadly, I agree with all of the other poor reviews. It's not the cleanest hotel, the breakfast is mediocre, and the front desk staff is...well I'll just say that they are not providing the sort of hospitality that Turkey is known for.There is no information in the guest rooms - no menu, no local map, etc. Unfortunately, there are much worse hotels than the Kismet. Kusadasi doesn't have great hotels. We end up putting clients here despite the drawbacks.
If you are eating/drinking here, watch what you order. There are some ridiculously overpriced items (e.g., a 50 lira chocolate souffle) that the staff will steer you towards. Insist on seeing a menu (and you will have to be rather insistent). We ordered room service because we were tired - the only reason you should order room service here. For better dining options walk down the hill to the main street. To your left is a nice (but pricey) seafood restaurant - Tarihi Cinar Balik, and across from there are 3-4 inexpensive "regular" restaurants. Pick the one in the middle - Antep Mutfagi - tasty fresh food, excellent service, affordable and yummy wine list. The closest one on the corner wasn't good.
