“I'm going to stay here again defo.”
Reviewed 11 May 2014

I highly recommend this hotel for the travellers who are looking for a cozy and warm room with a great harbor view with reasonable price.
I really like this hotel because...
First, kind and friendly staff.
When I checked in, They showed me two kinds of room and gave me chance to decide.
and informative staff at reception answered perfectly whenever I asked something about the direction and good restaurants and so on.

Second, Small but cozy with a great harbor view.
This hotel is just in front of harbor so you can stroll around sunrise and sunset time.
I did jog in the morning, actually. I couldn't but go out from room when I saw the panoramic view of harbor in the morning. Great location to trip this city.

Third, Yummy breakfast :) especially I liked their yogurt with strawberry and pomegranate

but if I have to say one minus point, this place could be noisy when you want to sleep early. because it is located in the center of the city where lots of traveller hold parties over night.

A very well located hotel, right on the main beachfront road of Kusadasi and directly facing the sea. Steps away from the cruise line terminal and the shops, with all the restaurants and cafes even closer. Neat and clean rooms, with good if a little 'basic' furniture and furnishings (those wanting a little more 'style' could try the Ilayda Avantgarde, a short distance away). Great friendly service, especially from Ali who went out of his way to make sure we got all we wanted and had asked for.

Everything worked very well - the shower, the Internet, housekeeping, TV. We didn't notice any noise, but we were on the 4th floor and our windows shut very well.

A good abundant breakfast, served in an excellent location on the hotel's rooftop. All the usual excellences of a great Turkish breakfast with added 'hot' dishes - one day fried eggs, on another crepes, and so on.

All this at an affordable price. Recommended!

Room Tip: Ask for a sea facing room on a high floor.

Extremely small room, Lovely view but dirty windows blocked the outlook. Incredible noise from the street and the rock concert directly across from room until near midnight ruined the stay. Even ear plugs of no help and after a 20 hour flight, quite annoying. Windows (that wouldn't close correctly), kept out no sound. Very weak internet, TV not working properly, House rules do not permit bringing even a bottle of water into the room. Moved out as quickly as possible. Three front desk staff were very polite. The 4th, who tried to fix the TV was overly rude. Appeared as though he owned the place.

Right in the centre of things, the hotel sea view is absolutley stunning. The happening city centre with all the bars and restaurants are next door. Good clean rooms with a friendly helpful staff. Kusadasi is a much better place to stay than Selcuk with respect to location, nightlife, services and food options.

Room Tip: ask for a sea view room... it is stunning. it will get noisy if the windows are left open as it is o...

ove the location of this hotel. Right opposite the harbor of Kusadasi and there are lots of restaurants and cafe along that strip. Perfect view when you have your meals!

The room was clean and in good size with a fantastic harbor view. It would be even better if we have a balcony!


Bathroom was a little small but with enough amenities

We love the breakfast at the terrace. Food was good and the view was superb

The free WIFI works most of the time but have to re log in from time to time

Reception staff were super helpful and friendly. They allowed me to sot at the front desk to have some Internet access and printing. I felt and when they have customer to check out and they would have to use the computer. They even brought me a tea!

The dinner was fantastic too!!
