We booked this place purely as a stop over b/t Gallipoli & Kusadasi (we were leaving Chanakale mid arvo & weren't sure if we'd get all the way to Kusadasi in one hit - especially having been up all night at the Dawn Service at Gallipoli).
What a pleasant surprise. Of course we couldn't find it initially- like all the maps on this web site it's not as simple as it looks (please don't take that the wrong way as "getting there" is all part of the "adventure") so we stopped at the local police station (arrived late & after the tourist info shop had shut) to ask directions. Minimal English & us with no Turkish - no problem! Rather than try to explain directions, the officer simply gave us a motor bike escort to the hotel! How cool is that?
And when we get there we find a wonderful, rustic old place with a care taker (a lovely "elder lady" who was most welcoming) & a spacious apartment style unit upstairs, which, although not the Tarj Mahal, had the biggest shower I saw in all of Turkey! And with plenty of hot water.
Breakfast was also excellent - no bacon & eggs but great traditional Turkish food & very fresh.
The hotel is walking distance to food & drinking places for dinner & afterwards- an interesting assortment. And not far from the "sights" of Bergama. Overall a great place to break your trip & highly recommended if you are looking for something a bit different to your "run of the mill" hotel.

- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Akropolis Guest House is located in the historical, old part of the city where the major attractions are very close. It's on the way of Redhall-Bazelika and Akropolis. Just 250 mt after Bazelika. And everybody know where Bazelika is if you ask in Bergama....You will feel the blend of uncountable cultures from the terrace. One silent location sarrounded narrow streets with old houses which they reflects the face of pergamum stories. ... more less
