First, I heard turnover is slightly on the high side - employees who tries hard with solo female travellers are sent away. So I reckon it depends on luck whether or not you meet nice people during your visit.
Mine was awesome.
The person running the hotel, the boys who couldnt speak English, the kitchen head, the dudes from the bus company across... they all put me at ease. I was sick and the staff offered to prepare hot honey water for me.
The whole place is a tad old yes. But location was good - about 5mins walk from the attraction. I found this place from my lonely planet book so I never read any reviews online before heading there. The rooms, towels etc as described by the others were kinda true, but it was good bargain. There were mosquitoes and coming from South East Asia, I hate to say but its impossible to avoid them unless you buy yourself a repellent. I stayed in the twin room but also saw the dorm and they all look ok to me.
Pool was a tad dirty and I made known to them. With the heat in summer, I was still using the pool so it was not disgusting to speak of.
Breakfast was so-so but dinner was lovely. You pay 15TL and you get a piece of meat and free-flow sides. I'm sure you can pay a bit more for more meat. It would have cost about the same outside but fortunately it tasted sooo good. I heard the kitchen head and chef were new.
Pamukkale is a very touristy place and most people stay for a night or two. Being a small town with nothing much to do, I appreciate the hospitality very much! I believe this place is good if you do not set expectation a tad too high.
