Bac Pansiyon
Ranked #42 of 97 Hotels in Bodrum City
Reviewed 16 September 2011

After personally visiting the hotel and checking the rooms, I contacted the owner/manager of Bac Pansiyon, and expressed my desire to book all existing 10 rooms for my wedding guests. We exchanged several emails, and the owner/manager guaranteed to hold all rooms for me for another 10 days. I furthermore told her that I was willing to make a prepayment in order to guarantee the booking, but she said that this was not necessary. After 6 days, I contacted her to confirm my reservation and to make the payment, but she said that she sold 4 out of 10 rooms which she was supposed to reserve for me.I tried to explain her that she totally spoiled my organization by not keeping her promise.

The next day she wrote me that she was able to cancel 2 out the 4 reservations, but she failed to cancel the remaining two. That still left me with 8 rooms when I was in absolute need of 10 rooms. I politely tried to explain her that neither 6, nor 8 rooms would solve the problem, and that I needed the 10 rooms which she reserved for me in writing. When she told me that this was the best she can do, I had to acknowledge that she was either too dumb or too mean to understand the seriousness of the problem. Therefore I decided not to pursue the matter further and leave her alone in her world without work ethics and responsibility.

Neither my guests nor me had the opportunity to stay at the hotel, but in view of my horrible experience during the reservation process I must agree with TA members who believe that the management of the hotel has no work ethics at all. Upon request of any TA member I am willing to provide my e-mail exchanges with Bac Pansiyon which is an undeniable proof of their lack of ethics. I cannot imagine what I would do if I weren't able to find alternative accomodations for my wedding guests in the last minute, so I would advise people to stay away from Bac Pansiyon to avoid stress and embarassment.

The hotel is perfectly positioned if you want to be in the centre of Bodrum in the main shopping area and with plenty of bars and restaurants in easy walking distance. The view from the rooms at the back of the hotel looking over the bay is wonderful. Those are the rooms to get. There is a roof terrace with tables and chairs available all day so you have somewhere comfortable to sit and enjoy the view. A good turkish breakfast is served there between 8 and 11.

Rooms at the front of the hotel are cheaper and smaller, they look over the street and despite double glazing there is a huge amount of noise from the street until the early hours of the morning.

The hotel has a boutique feel to it, well decorated and stylish.

The owner is very friendly and helpful.

Room prices on a Saturday night in April 2011 were 140ytl for a sea view room and 100ytl for a room at the front of the hotel. The hotel was full. Great value for the location.

Room Tip: Pay the extra for a sea view and less noise!

Depending on your purpose this hotel -I would say hotel though indicated as a pension-is a great value if you want to stay in the center of Bodrum and looking for a clean decent place. Even more than you would imagine you have to chance to have a great view right from your room. The rooms are very nicely decorated and even authentically designed, spacious, very clean and comfortable with led TV, air conditioning, a big closet and a balcony. You have a nice breakfast on the roof terrace looking at the amazing view. The staff is very kind and helpfull. Even starting from the reservation they were very efficient. Especially the sea view rooms can be noisy inhaling the busy night life of Bodrum:) but acceptable considering the value of the hotel especially if piece and quiete are not the things you are looing for. Also consider that there is no car/taxi access to the street of the hotel. There are few number of rooms in the hotel so I would recommend an early booking as possible. We only has a problem with the noise from the airconditioning and smell from the bathroom but the management urgently solved it. Overall I was very impressed and would definetely recommend Bac Pansiyon!

We booked the Baç after readıng the Lonely Planet review and agree that the rooms are very clean and the location ıs great. However, our experience was that management was unscrupulous. We arrived in the early evening and there were two staff members in the tiny lobby. On the regigstration form it was clear that there were two people in the room and that the price - for two - was EUR55. When we checked out the next mornıng a dıfferent member of staff insisted that the 55 was for one and for two it was EUR65. He finally relented and when we asked for a receipt he gave us one - for 100 Turkish lira - or EUR50. Our recommendation is to eıther get a copy of the registratıon form (he mysteriously couldn't find it when we asked to see it) or do what we now do everywhere - take a picture of it before you hand it back.

Bac Pansiyon is a small B&B located in the heart of Bodrum. It's in a perfect location-right on one of the mail alley ways, next to lots of restaurants, bars, and stores. All of the sites are walking distance. Pay the few extra dinar and upgrade to a room with a water view. You will not regret it! It's absolutely beautiful. Staff is friendly and rooms are clean. I don't think the staff speaks much, if any, English though. I spoke to them in Turkish. Breakfast is yummy and traditional. Highly recommend this hotel

This is the place to stay if you wish incredible views from your sea-side window and still be in the heart and center of this busy tourist city. The pension is clean, modern and well-appointed. The staff are courteous and helpful. Step out of the front door and you are in the center of the tourist district. There are excellent restaurants next door and all along the sea side in every direction.
Breakfast consists of a typical Turkish Kahvalti, consisting of eggs, tomatoes, cucumbers, olives, cheese, bread and tea (or coffee) on a third floor terrace overlooking the harbour and castle. It may be a bit noisy at night because of all the entertainment locations nearby. But the location was worth it for us!
