“Fantastic place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 April 2014

I was caught by surprise when we arrived at the Manastir Hotel in Bodrum.Everything I wish for I got it, the room was spetacular, with a huge balcony and amazing views from the city, breakfast and the facilities were awesome, I strong recommend your stay there.

Room Tip: choose the room 310 is one of the best ones.

The hotel is very nice and very we'll located (walking distance from the bay and 15 blocks (Aprox) away more o less form the Castle). However it may be a challenge for people with mobility problems as it is located at the top of the hill so waling back from the bay requires certain physical condition to go up, also there are a lot of stairs and levels at the hotel with no elevator.
Pool and bar areas are the best as you will enjoy a panorama view of the whole bay including the Bodrum's castle.

There is also a pool table for free play but we didn't use it.

We spent stunning sunsets drinking a Turkish coffee beside the pool (we went in April '14), so we really recommend it after a busy day walking around the bay.

Breakfast is very complete but juices need to be paid (10TL), so be aware of it (anyway there are signs in Turkish and English near the blender advertising about it).

Room was ok, clean and big enough (anyway we don't spend much time there ), slippers were provided with good toiletries.

Personnel was very kind but be advised about the poor English so getting directions may be a challenge. Also, they seem not very used to deal with tourism, or at least are not proactive enough to offer you directions, tips and hints advises, tours, etc (you encounter this kind of proactiveness in other parts just when asking for a map).

We would definitely return to the hotel.

Stayed 4 nights in the penthouse well worth it as the price was great too! You won't beat the view from anywhere is Bodrum! Listening to the call to prayer from the penthouse balcony looking over Bodrum harbour while the sun is setting puts you in awe! Staff are friendly and customer service is great! Pls Manastir hotel get some adapters for us foreigners and our electrics and more selection of wines from all over not just Turkey!

A great location at the top of the hill in Bodrum which offers an escape from the traffic and jostling crowds. Very clean and very nice pool and bar area on a large terrace with terrific views. The lighting in the rooms is poor. Staff offered terrible directions to the hotel ("go to the bus station and ask someone where we are located") when we called to tell the staff we had just driven into Bodrum. The restaurant only serves breakfast. Lunch and dinner are only offered at the outdoor bar from the limited room service menu. My room did not have internet service and when I called the front desk to ask why the free internet service did not extend to my room, I was told that "sometimes that happens". When you checkout, the itemized bill only has charges and the department (restaurant, bar) but not what was ordered, so checking the bill for correctness is quite difficult. Parking is a nightmare if you have to leave early. Many cars get blocked in and then the staff has to move the outer cars.

WELL WELL .... This is the best view hotel so far in Central Bodrum , hotle is located on top of the hill of KUMBAHCE area , it is up to hill if you prefer to walk, or if you are driving , or have rental car like us , and easy to walk down towards to Halikarnas Barlar street area , hotel is located in very nice residential area . Yet offers you the best view of Bodrum Castle , Marina and whole scene ...What else to expect , for the ones have no car get a short taxi ride in and our very easy to get one infront of the hotel .
Most of the room shave a perfect Sea View for unbeliavable bodrum ...Can not go wrong with this hotel , friendly staff , and most of the rooms recently renovated ....

Thank you for the nice stay

Room Tip: Try to get the rooms with a castle view :))

So after all of the amazing hospitality we experienced in turkey, staying in this hotel was like walking into a strange bubble where we were resented for even walking in the door. It was so weird. We booked a suite as it was towards the end of our trip and we thought it would be nice to splash out and have a private jacuzzi and a nice big room. Big mistake. There were three of us staying and if we'd known one would have to sleep on a bad couch we would have stayed elsewhere. We tried to switch rooms but this was not possible even in low season. There was an attempt to bring in another bed but it was worse so we stuck with the couch. We thought ok whatever, our mistake. Then we tried the jacuzzi- it was broken. Went to bed as it was too hard to communicate with the staff who had very limited English. Told them the next day it was broken. Response was... "Ok". And when we said again on checkout that it didn't work the receptionist said no, it's fine. Why would we lie about that? Also told them on day two the room was infested with ants. Response was..."ok". We decided to get out of there for the day!!! One good thing was that the staff arranged a good hire car. So we were appreciative of that. Breakfast was good.... Until we checked out and were told that orange juice is extra. There was apparently a sign in Turkish that we should have understood. We'd not been informed and we hadn't signed for them, which is surely deception, so we really put our foot down and refused to pay. We were then told it was cash for the car. Again... Why wouldn't you just tell us this up front??? Had to argue to put this on a credit card. So uncomfortable. Then the final insult!!! You drank two soda waters from the "complimentary" Mini bar so you have to pay. Right, so everything is free except for soda water???? Were we supposed to know this telepathically? So bizarre, we don't care about paying if we've been told up front. Just be honest. The actual hotel is ok, the view from our suite (500) was beautiful, but the room was cold, damp and uncomfortable, bad water pressure and old uncomfortable beds. You guys need to get the basics right! Seriously felt like you hated us for even staying. Ugh. It was horrible. So weird it was actually quite funny in a fawlty towers kind of way. I think a big part of the problem was staff who were inexperienced and with very limited English but also with a lets squeeze the tourists mentality. They seemed like they were nice enough people but had absolutely no idea. So glad to be back to civilisation in Istanbul!

Bodrum is a beautiful small city with great restaurants, shops and hotels. I stayed at the Manastir Hotel last month for 5 days and it was great. The hotel has the best view of the stunning bay and the town. Food was good and services spot on with friendly staff.

The hotel is on top of a hill, so bear in mind you have to walk about 10 minutes from the beach on a quite stiff street but a taxi will cost roughly 7 liras (12 lira after 8pm) to take you to the hotel. The hotel even have their own taxi office outside. I walked all the time, nice exercise and not that hard if you are not in a hurry.

The hotel advertise Turkish Hammam on their facilities but this is actually private in one of the suites. The swimming pool area is beautiful with bar and restaurant. I will definitely stay here if I make it to Bodrum again

Room Tip: You pay for the view. If you ask for room 703, I think its the best but will cost you more
