“fat cats and apple tea”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 April 2014

Arrive into Marmaris after nearly 24 hours of ferrying through greece and straight away i was approached by the owner who was not pushy and offered a cheap double room. I was very glad to find him! All the help we could need was offered and tips on where to find cheap authentic turkish food aswell. The room was simple but cheap and ticked all the boxes for budget travel. We were given homemade apple tea which i still have never had anything which tasted so good! We were also treated to seeing the 2nd fattest cat in Europe which made the trip to Marmaris all the better.

My sister and I stayed here and felt immediately like members of the family. The manager, Memo, really makes the experience worth it. He told us how to get to beaches with practically no tourists and always had apple tea ready for us when we used the wifi in the main courtyard. Very good wifi by the way. The room was clean, as was the bathroom but it also kind of had a funny smell. Marmaris is a hard city to do on a budget, but the Maltepe Pension makes it so much easier and enjoyable. Would definitely come back!

Simply the best place to stay in Marmaris. great atmosphere and the best hospitality you'll probably ever receive. Mehmet is a legend, hire a Jeep and get him to show you where to go, you'll have a blast. And you have to meet his sister!

Room Tip: The single rooms dont cost much more then a double great place to get some space and sort your life...

If you're looking for clean rooms with 2 or 3 beds then we found Meltepe Pension an excellent place to stay in the heart of Marmaris.

We came across from Rhodes and as soon as we cleared customs the taxi drivers recommended this place as a good place to doss down.

From here you can easily walk down to the tour boat piers and shopping, restaurant streets. In fact it took us 5 minutes to get to these places.

Mehmet is kind and will bend over backwards to ensure that you enjoy your stay here.

Depending on the season they charge around €15 - 20 per person per night. They have their own kitchen and the wifi is really fast.

Enjoy

Room Tip: Any room is good, you're away from the main road so it's not noisy at all.

Very good pension, great value as it is very well run and clean. It has a wonderful atmosphere and the family that run it are extremely friendly and go out of there way to make you feel at home. It has a great loacation and has a nice shady vine covered patio which is great on a hot day. A highlight is the big friendly "Fat Cat" which is often found longing around on the patio.

I had a good experience here. The owner was very nice and friendly and went out of his way to help me. He even gave me a lift to the bus station on the back of his scooter which I thought was very nice. The other people who run the hotel (I think are his parents) were also very friendly but didn't speak much English. The lady gave me delicious apple tea a number of times and always seemed happy to see me. My room was fine, the bed was comfortable. The bathroom was fine - nothing luxurious but that's to be expected for the price. Everything worked and was cleaned regularly so no complaints. The location was good, just a few minutes walk to the main area of shops and restaurants. I'm not sure how easy it is to find initially as I took a taxi from the ferry port. I was able to use the kitchen but I didnt. It didnt have a microwave, only a stove top. The patio was very pretty and a nice place to relax with apple tea. I would definately stay here again and recommend it.

This pension is close to the dolmus route from the otogar and to the centre of the city: it was great to be able to walk everywhere, including to the beach for a swim, less 10minutes away. Another plus is the massive signage and can't be missed.The morbidly obese cat on the path is another indication that you have found the right place
Maltepe does not provide breakfasts (so it probably shouldn't call itself a pension) but the room prices are pretty much the same of other places that do. Guests are offered free use of the kitchen so that you can prepare your own food - not much of a compensation.
The rooms are smallish. Ours had an ensuite, but others don't, so it may pay to check this out first. The decor is rather bland but everything was neat and tidy. If you enjoy hanging round the hostels you are staying at, then there is an shady terrace with tables.
The family who own and run the place are friendly and approachable. We were made lots of cups of refreshing tea, delivered to the room. The owner, Mehmet, did ask/expect us (and other guests too we later found out) to acquire him duty free Ouzo when we took the day ferry to Rhodes.
