“Don't Think and (Just) Dive!”
Reviewed 8 April 2014

Well, not literally...but i take strong exception to the preceding review titled to the contrary.

In our assessment (my wife, and two daughters, 5 and 2), the property represents a very homely atmosphere-something what you experience in say Florence's small homely properties.

Kaleiçi, the old town was a chance last minute choice for the hotel but we are glad we stayed there (as opposed to the beach which was cold, no COLD). Strolling through the stone-cobbled streets and observing the roadside cafes, we get to Clock Tower in under 10 mins. Clock Tower, mind you is the center of all activity per se insofar as Kaleiçi is concerned-shopping, eating, visiting nearby historical mosques etc.

The hotel is a 5 min stroll to the marina (do catch the sunset there). So in short, very central location.

The staff was extremely courteous and helpful. Served with a smile and even the managers do not hesitate to help you with your luggage! The dinner buffet for 30 TL was a steal (loved the wide assortment of salads).

Thank you Onur, Inan, Khalid, Adam and Chef Hussain for all your hospitality.

The rooms are a bit small but that I suppose is consistent with how most European hotel rooms are (say in Paris?). The pool was closed when we arrived but was turned on the 1st of April (check that smirk). Children's pool is a plus.

Complimentary Wifi was suitably fast for viber voice calls in our room across the pool on the first floor.

Just one suggestion for the management: Breakfast seems to be missing packaged frozen yogurts and fresh seasonal fruits.
Thank you for a great stay.

Room Tip: Rooms across the pool down the stairs have a private little garden!

Think twice before you decide to stay at this hotel! Unfortunately we stayed at this hotel for two days. Thanks God only for two days. All we got is problems, unfriendly staff, poor and incapable management and a stolen pair of brand-new shoes in the end! You can be sure about that there is no respect to your private life at this hotel!

We clearly stated that we DON’T want cleaning service for our room during our stay because as a woman I didn’t want my private belongings to be seen buy a male cleaner, which is so ordinary. However, they entered our room without asking for our permission and we got shocked when we returned to hotel and saw our stuff replaced. Besides, we realized that a pair of shoes of us was STOLEN!

We kindly complained about it to the receptionist, cleaning staff and the hotel management. Most of talked in an obscure and unfriendly way. Luckily, one of the cleaners entering our room confessed that she saw that pair of shoes in our room while cleaning and that was a strong proof for our unjust treatment. So, we thought that our problem would be solved. But the so-called hotel manager forced all the staff who are talking fort he benefit of us to change their statements.

More irritating than that, the hotel manager tried to prevent us when we wanted to called the police for keeping an official report. When the police officers came, she often interrupted us while we were giving a statement and tried to cover up the event! Her attitude was too far away from being a manager and solving the problem.

The problem was not only the stolen pair of shoes. The problem was maybe our more precious belongings could be stolen if we had brought with us! Additionally, the same or maybe more troublesome experience can happen to any customer staying there. What they were supposed to do was to save our rights, NOT ruining our holiday!

Furthermore, the hotel is very close to the pubs; so, it is not something preferred if you are planning a peaceful holiday. The rooms are so small, neglected and bathroom has some bad odor from the drain. What is also nonsense is that he hotel charges for Wi-Fi in the rooms. .

To sum up, there is NO privacy and security at Doğan Hotel. There are better hotels in that region. Of course this is my personal experience. It is your decision to take the risk or not!

The house itself is very beautifull, nice helpfull staff, the room was not very big but nice furnished. Just the bed was a bit hard.
Breakfast was great, a lot off choise, something for everyones tast.
The diner was buffet, nice choise off meze and a choise between two maincourses.
You can relax in the beautifull romantic outdoorspace ( the pool was not open in march).
The room was cleaned every day by a really nice lady, clean towels and toilletries also every day.
The location is also fantastic, everything is at walking distance.
We had a great vacation here.

Room Tip: we had seen on tripadviser that the room in the front was noisy, but we had no problems in our front...

Lovely hotel in a fantastic location in the old town. Very relaxed atmosphere with helpful, friendly staff. The hotel has its own enclosed gardens which are peaceful. In warmer weather you can enjoy sitting among the fruit trees drinking the local Efes beer. The food is perfectly acceptable- a self service dinner with three main options each night and a variety of side salads, cheese, bread and the like.

A short walk down the hill (3-4 minutes) and you are in the harbour area where you can go for a short boat ride. All of the old town facilities are right on hand.

The hotel was good value for money. The room was cleaned every day. A late check out time was helpful.

I'd recommend the hotel to anybody.

At the very start as you approach the outside through the winding old streets you know you are in for something special. The inside is authentic, but with a clean, cool, modern twist which is very welcome after a hot day of sight seeing. The garden and pool are heaven on earth and it is like being cocooned in your own secret space amidst the hustle and bustle of outside. It is ideally located to all Antalya has to offer and a perfect place to come home to.

This hotel is in the centre of the old city very close to the marina, It has a peaceful garden and a great breakfast. The staff is very helpful and the room was very clean. It is not far away from the centre attractions of Antalya and also you can find some good restaurants in the area. Also plenty of mini markets, souvenir shops and bars. I highly recommend this hotel !!
