“Think twice”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 June 2013

Positives: right across from public concrete beach, close to old part, clean. Negatives: noise from water rushing down pipe, smoke entered from adjoining balcony, not very friendly reception, owner did not respond to email regarding an overcharge in room cost. (stayed 2 nights and was charged for 3), only takes cash, room is basic. Usual breakfast.

This pensiyon would be beautiful in summer. Ocean views, shaded outdoor areas, lovely garden. However we stayed there in winter. The air heater was too noisy to leave on all night, which meant the room was cold all night. The water took forever to heat up, and then had little pressure. Breakfast was the usual, and my cup of tea was delicious. The family was very welcoming.

We have spent many holidays in Kas, and feel the Lale Pension is a real hidden gem. Family run, it is exquisitely situated overlooking Little Pebble Beach. Balconys dripping in beautiful Bourganvilia, overlooking the bay. The rooms are clean and onsuite.Linnen changed every second day. Breakfast very plentiful, varied, with home cooked treats.
It would be very hard to better the Lale Pension.

Room Tip: overlooking the beach

We have been to Kas with my husband and stay at Lale Pension for a week and i can say best in Kas - before we look at so may places - best price, best location, cleanest, home feel, excellent breakfast- home made- nice view at terrace, quiet and also safe feeling.
1 minute walk to sea, 2 minute walk to central location. The owner lady is really pretty and give good advices for you about Kas where to eat and where to swim.

we stayed at the Lale pension for a week last June. It was ideal being so close to the sea and centre where there is an abundance of lovely shops and places to eat. The rooms are ensuite, with a balcony, very clean and of a good size, The breakfast was plentiful, breads, cakes, delicious jams and honey (all home made ) cheeses, fruit, olives, tea (turkish and english) coffee (turkish and english). We found the owners (mother and daughter Saniye) to be very friendly and helpful. There are plenty of other hotels very close by but this was by far the best value for money. Kas is a beautiful place and we will definately go back and stay at the Lale Pension again, if we can get in!!

Room Tip: try to get a room at the front of the building to get a nice view overlooking the sea.

The pension is overrated and I think that the previous review does not truly represent the pension.We booked a sea-view room about a week before we went to Kaş. They said that they required a certain amount of the price beforehand, and would reply with account details after we emailed them. I sent the email. No answer. I called the next day. She told me that they were very busy and couldn't reply and that she would reply immediately (Later when we were staying there, we saw that no one seemed to be busy at all. I think there was plenty of time to answer an email.) Yet still no answer. But we talked several times on the phone. 2 days before our arrival, I called again to learn that she booked our room on wrong dates (which I repeated 2 times via email and several times on the phone).

Anyway she gave us another room. Maybe it was us but they didn't show any signs of a warm welcome. The room view was not the one promised. When I asked about the sea-view, she told me to walk the distane to the corner of the balcony and lean out to see the view.

Other things include:
-rooms get cleaned every 3 days.
-no hanger and shower curtain in our bathroom
-standard breakfast nothing fancy
-doors are old and noisy. Woke up several times with door slamming sounds.
-door locks definitely not looking secure. Wouldn't want to keep anything valuable in the room.
-Our balcony was a part of the main area. Anyone could enter our balcony if they wanted to.
-bathroom window doesn't have a curtain, you can see through.
-top floors don't have internet access.
-only accepts cash


The room was clean, didn't have a problem with that. Other than that, the pension is on the same price range with most of the other pensions around. And I believe you could find a much better place for the same price.

This really is a hidden gem. It was now the 3rd time that I stayed in Lale Pension. This family-run little pension offers you everything you desire: located close to the centre of the town but quiet, beautiful view over the sea, especially from the terrace on the top, 30 m to go for swimming, fantastic breakfast, nice other guests. (The owner, Saniye, normally works with people who come there every year, mostly foreigners, but also some Turkish people. This is the only problem you might face: Lale is normally fully booked, above all in the summer months. So if you want to travel in July or August, be sure to book early.)
The rooms are fresh-painted, the furniture is always renewed after a few years.
They care very much for their guests. If you have any wish you can be sure that it will be satisfied immediately. You have got a problem with your health (headache, pain in your stomach etc.)? Ask Saniye and she will make you a tea, which helps you to recover.
The breakfast is very rich and superb. You will find much more than in other more luxury places. Saniye's honey will let you melt.
All in all one of the nicest pensions I ever stayed in.
