Serhan Hotel
Ranked #26 of 101 Hotels in Gumbet
Reviewed 2 August 2011

Stayed here with 2 friends for a week in the sun. If you're like me, and looking for a base in which to explore the surrounding area and be within walking distance of the bars, restaurants and beach then this hotel is perfect. Don't expect too much, it's 3 star but it's more than adequate if you're looking for a clean, relaxing and quiet base.

It's located on a quiet street, just a 5 minute walk to the beach and the bars and clubs of Bar Street. Our room was fairly basic, right on the top floor, there's no lift which made carrying the suitcase up the narrow stairs a little bit of a job! We had 3 beds in a room which can apparently sleep 4, but I'd struggle to see where the 4th person would sleep. The balcony was pretty tiny and just about had room for one chair. The view was enclosed on 3 sides, and the front looked out onto the Hotel Colossus I think was its name. This place plays loud music all day through until about 4am but with the door closed you can't really hear it. Beds are comfy enough and the maid comes in every day, bedding changed every 3 days.

Air con is charged as extra, and in mid-July in Turkey it's not really optional if you want to sleep!! This came to an extra 88 lira for the week but was definitely worth it. We were self catering but sampled the food a couple of times. I think it's fair to say this was nothing special, edible but you're far better off venturing out to the local restaurants (Red Dragon and Carpe Diem were the best 2 we tried). The hotel swimming pool was lovely, clean, decent size and never had any problems getting a lounger either. Bar is open til late, staff very helpful and friendly and there's a free pool table too.

Gumbet itself is great, only downside being the PR people trying to get you into their bars/restaurants, selling roses/bracelets etc, which becomes very tedious when you only want to walk down the street without getting hassled. The bars on Bar Street are much of a muchness, playing the same music and offering the same drinks deals but we always had a good night. Outback and Temple were our two favourites. Big disappointment was the beach, busy and smelly with very little space but overall I'd return to Gumbet and I'd return to the Serhan.

After booking this holiday we started hearing that Gumbet was an 18-30 party holiday resort and whilst reviews say the Serhan hotel is quiet enough we were a little unsure quite what to expect.
We need not have worried: the hotel was a low key quiet place - the bar will stay open late, but from what we saw, come 11pm it's usually empty. There are bars on the beach, which is a 5 minute walk away and the main bars in the town centre are 5-10 minutes from the hotel. All of these are far enough away not to be heard in the hotel at night and as the hotel is on a quiet street, there was no traffic noise at night either.
The hotel rooms have recently being re-decorated and of the three rooms we saw all were nice and clean, although sizes did vary. Our first night was in a large room on the top floor, with the worst balcony I have ever seen - enclosed on 3 sides with only a 4 foot wide side opening to see off. Due to the poor balcony we asked to be moved and were moved to a ground floor room facing the pool, with a nice small but adequate balcony. This room was medium sized, but large enough for our week there. The third room was a top floor courtesy room were given on our departure day to change and shower in, this was small, but did have a large balcony. Please note there are no lifts, although as the staff carried my girlfriends case up the stairs I dare say they would do the same for anyone else who asked.
The hotel staff were all very friendly and were happy to move us and provide the courtesy room. I'd recommend air-conditioning - it costs about £5 per night, but was needed when the night time temperatures didn't fall below 20C.
The best way to get around the area is by Dolmus, which picks from the end of the street and goes to Bodrum, from where you get just about anywhere.
Overall a very good holiday and somewhere I'd be happy to return to.

We stayed in this hotel for 2 nights! it was first trip to Bodrum.
it is just 5 min walk to Gumbet beaches and 10 min walk to night life center of Gumbet.
It takes 10-15 min to get to bodrum city center by mini bus(dolmush) and its fare is 2.75TL per person. You can reserve some tours via agencies around the hotel.
the staff were helpful and room were clean but very small! it was a 9-10 meter room! Breakfast was in turkish style and delicious.
I will go back in future tripe to bodrum!

First Time to Turkey Last year....
Fantastic Location...Really good Services, Quite small pool area but thats commen for Turkey! Breakfasts Okay, generally we ate out. Small Rooms but adequate for what you needed it for. Not much of a balcony, Would advise to request a high floor Room.
Bathroom facilities ok. Maid service brilliant. Couldn't Fault this hotel and will be returning.
Value for money is brilliant.
Clean, tidy, good location... What more could you ask for?

Room Tip: Request High floor and pool View.
