“Great Base for Anatalya”
Reviewed 8 July 2012

A warm welcome and splendid rooms, friendly and helpful staff provided exceptional service including two very early breakfasts. Right in the middle of the Old Town. A clean and good sized pool added to the pleasure of or stay, will return at some time, possibly when a little cooler!!

Room Tip: They are all very nice!

I have been traveling a lot in the last 6 months through the Balkans, Europe and Asia, and every so often I come across a hotel that is off the beaten path, quaint, reasonably priced, beautiful in every way, and just wonderful. The Urcu hotel was not one of these places. In fact, this was the worst stay in the last 6 months of traveling 19 countries.

This hotel is a dive, a “one star” hotel on a good day. The outside looks great, but the inside is not. The carpet looks as if it has been there since Ottoman times, the furniture is cheap and eclectic—“simple” furnishing is an overstatement and euphemistic description. The A/C blew mostly warm air—no fun in the hot summer day and night with high humidity. There was no hot water in our room nor for our traveling companions.

While the staff did try to be friendly and helpful, they came across more as overworked and irritable. Breakfast consisted of a bland “continental” / Turkish breakfast with no meat, no coffee (only Nescafe), taken in a “garden” with an astroturf–like surface laid on the ground--ghetto.

From the time we arrived, they asked us if we wanted to pay at that moment, and when I declined, I was continually asked (and my wife) until the time I checked out and paid. They acted as if the money was already spent, and needed it for operating costs. When we checked out early due to a change in plans, the owner raised his voice, demanding to know why we were leaving early. Quite unprofessional.

The only redeeming part of this hotel is the location, right in the heart of the old city and near everything. This is a low-budget hotel that charges for the location, but is not worth it.

Our family of 2 adults + 2 kids stayed here for a few nights. Frendly service, quiet, good value for money. Pretty basic equipment in the rooms and a little work on the details wouldn't hurt (inside door of the room got stuck, air-conditioning didn't work, plastic lawn in the garden). No fridges in the room, but the manager brought one to our room for the kids' stuff. It didn't work, though, but I'll give credit for the effort anyway.

Nice swimming pool and good location in the old city if you're driving, as the hotel is close to the entrance to the old city and a parking is just around the corner.

Room Tip: Check whether the AC works.

The hotel is situated in an area steeped in history dating to 120BC; quaint bars and cobbled streets you feel as if you are walking in the foot steps of Romans.

The Hotel itself is an old chateau in keeping with beautiful local architecture the rooms are large and clean with cable television air conditioning and en suite shower and toilet.

Staff at the hotel are capable in many European languages so are very helpful and kind which makes for a good family enviroment.

The Hotel URCU overall is great place to stay if you are on a budget or just looking for a respectful comforting Holiday.

Dont expect something like a classic authentic old town hotel. Urcu is outdated pension, furnished with cheap pieces. This hotel is also very expensive, if you take price & quality parity into consideration, compared to the other hotels in oldtown

I stayed here with a friend for one night but was planning to stay for two. I switched hotels because the Urcu was so much more expensive than Sabah Pansiyon, where our other friends were staying. (1 night at Urcu: 150 TL, 1 night at Sabah: 50 TL)
The service was great--the people let us check in early and they grudgingly let us leave early too. (That was a really awkward conversation, though.)

Our room was large but not that nice. The bathroom was sketchy (pipes sticking out of walls randomly, shower cabin really plastic-y & dated, etc.) and it had the smallest TV in the world. It was a fine place to crash, but not worth the extra money.

We have spent only one night at this small family hotel (http://www.urcuhotel.com). Upon our arrival after midnight we were received by the very friendly staff who helped us taking our luggage to the room. We were offered a fresh fruit plate as a friendly welcome even at this late hour! Our room was simple but very clean and absolutely quiet. In the morning the breakfast buffet which was served on the terrace by the pool was very tasty. As already mentioned the staff of this hotel is very friendly and helpful as well as the manager, Mr Ibrahim, who is around and helpful in case of any questions. We can fully recommend this nice spot and would stay again here in future. Good value for your money. Very close to this hotel you can find the Sefa Hamam (Turkish bath - http://www.sefahamam.com) which is said to be one of the oldest and popular in town. Unfortunately, we didn't have the time to visit it but next time for sure.
