A hotel which takes you back in history. If slightly faded grandeur is your thing, then this is the place for you. Rooms are OK, everything works, facilities are sufficient. Very friendly staff and fantastic views.

Stayed: June 2018, travelled with friends

We have stayed here many times over the past twenty years.
It’s sad to see that the hotel is more than ready for refurbishment.
The more pricey rooms are very spacious with balconies and still ok. But cheaper ones really show the passage of time.
No room service. Dinner available .

For those of us who are Game of Thrones freaks, Heartsbane is known to us as a great-sword that has been in the same family for many generations. I don't know why the sword served to be a bane, but it sure had invoked feelings for people. Kismet Hotel is a special place - an ancient gem that has passed on from generation to generation. And this place invokes feelings as one basks in the glamorous history of literally, royalty. It makes one remember why old James Bond movies with chris-crafts, palaces and ball rooms were so cool and magical. It makes one realize that there was a time when people actually lived like Great Gatsby, and maybe we lost the touch and things have become boring, complacent, standardized, and lacking of soul. One can't help but think our new way of living turned princes, kings, legends and icons into hash tags lost. Kismet is not 4 seasons and that is not the value proposition or the reason for the 5 stars - although accommodations are great, we had a beautiful suite overlooking the water. We watched the sunset at the bar with a calm breeze on our faces, had great breakfast on the lawn overlooking the bay, swam by the rocks, ate house-innovated Kismet Kebab, enjoyed the views and had fantastic seafood by the restaurant on premise and absorbed the soul of this gem. There were few places that spoke to us through out all our adventures with my wife, and Kismet is one of them. It is hard to explain, I highly recommend experiencing it. One thing is for sure, we won't forget the Heartsbane!

Not much to talk about since I only stayed for one night. The atmosphere of nobility strikes you as soon as you step inside.
The building, being the oldest in town resembles a palace with its superb location, overlooking the bay and marina....The photographs on the walls tell the whole story.
I reserved a suit whhich was fantastic with its large balcony. (suite Aqua). One can stare at sea all day long while contemplating the good old times this Hotel must have seen. We dined on the terrace, to my surprise, the chef knew the exact meaning of "medium rare" and he reflected it onto my delicious fillet steak. (unfortunately they stock only French mustard, but I reminded them the hot Coleman's English mustard was a "must" for a restaurant of their caliber)
Breakfast was nice, since there was not many people as it was the end of season, not much to talk about. All in all if you are nostalgic like myself Kısmet Hotel is a must
if you can.

We were invited here to have Turkish coffee whilst sat on the terrace overlooking the entire harbour and sea front. We were given a full guided tour of this eautifully elegant old hotel with a great atmosphere. The gardens around the terrace are well maintained and the views spectacular.
