We went back to Marsyas Hotel, we had a wicked time, Mama Mary was just as lovely and so were her family. I am reading some of the negative reviews on this site and I am bit miffed. When booking for this hotel, it clearly states that there is no fridge in the rooms and aircon is extra. On arrival at the hotel, there are large notices on reception that aircon is £30 and the costings if yu want a late check-out. The hotel is family run, yes it is a bit dated and tired, but it is clean. If you want 4 or 5 star then there are other places to stay. You get what you pay for. The food is home cooked turkish cuisine, if you dont like fine, ask for burger and chips, Mama will cook it for you. But, what is the point of going to another country and not eating and sampling the food and culture - why travel?? My friends and I visited Marsyas for a 2nd time, Mama has renovated two of the rooms - they look gorgeous, hopefully by next year she will finish. We have also suggested she put fridges in the rooms as during the night you need fluids and it would also be useful for families with babies to store milk and drinks. Over-all we had a lovely time, Mama and the family bent over backwards to make our stay relaxing. She loves to cook turkish cuisine and other dishes for her guests and does get upset if you have not eaten, she will cook something to suit you palatte. So dont be afraid to ask her and let her know what type of food you like. As for the lift we arrived just befote the lift broke down and there was a notice on the lift in english that the lift was broken. Overall great location, friendly hotel, lovely owners and good food.
Can't wait to go back, next year, I may even get a long weekend before the end of the season, either way, I'll be staying at Marsyas!!
