Hotel Burc
Ranked #3 of 3 Hotels in Dalaman
Reviewed 25 July 2013

The only good thing about this place was the proximity to airport but then we discovered a much better hotel 650m down the road.. we walked there in desperation in the evening looking for somewhere to eat!

Room Tip: Dont expect to shower unless you are happy to have a cold shower!

After our three week tour of Turkey, Hotel Burc was the only hotel that was a disappointment. We had also travelled to remote corners of Eastern Turkey where the hotel accommodation although simple was far superior. We were not looking for luxury. We just wanted a hotel close to the Dalaman airport for an early morning flight. While it was clean and we had help transporting our luggage to our room and we did have working air conditioning (that was actually quite freezing), the hotel is priced quite steeply for what it offers. The furnishings were spartan (more like something you would find in a student dormitory or cheap pension), the pillows extremely hard. This was the only hotel that did not have a shower stall. It had a handheld shower device near the toilet, but as there was no shower enclosure water would have been all over the bathroom floor making it extremely dangerous for a slip and fall. We were in a hotel after all and not on a boat! We left too early to try the breakfast and did not get to use the pool. The hotel looks much nicer on the outside. It is obvious that the hotel owner is not looking for repeat business.

We needed a place for one night, close to Dalaman airport. This fits that criteria. The staff were friendly and helpful, and the rooms were clean enough. The breakfast in the morning was adequate. The pool was nice.

Very close to Dalaman airport so perfect for early flights out. Room was basic but clean and quiet. Owner was very friendly and hospitable and nothing was too much trouble. Pool was big and water sparkling. Dinner was freshly cooked with salad ingredients pulled out of the garden. Taxi was called and appeared in 5 minutes.

This hotel is very close to Dalaman Airport and an ideal place to stay for a night! The owner was exceptionally helpful, the pool was nice and the fresh oranges were the best we've ever tasted! We were treated to a free ride into Dalaman courtesy of the owner and the next day he saved us 60 turkish lira by ordering us a local taxi into Gocek and back to the airport after a wonderful day out in this beautiful marina.

Positive:
-it is really close to the airport (10-15 minutes and around 20 liras); good if you just need a place to sleep right before or after arriving at the airport
-the people working there are really helpful and friendly
-they accept cash payments both in liras and euros (even mixed)
-TV with various channels
-pool is OK
-breakfast is OK

Negative:
-some of the rooms have recently been refurnished, but others are old and not very clean; you may want to ask specifically to avoid the latter
-there is nothing to do around the hotel, so this is not the place for a longer stay
-the pictures of the building and the swimming pool look of course much better than the reality

I stayed in this hotel with some friends twice mainly because it's close to the airport—the first time when arriving in Dalaman and the second a week later, when leaving. The impressions I got in these two ocasions were quite different, though.

The first time we stayed there (despite it was the beginning of October and the hotel was almost empty) we got a room on the second floor which was just OK-ish: it was not terrible, but it looked old and a bit dirty, with ripped mosquito nets on the windows and a rather creepy bathroom, definitely not clean and without even a proper shower (the bathroom was simply a big empty space with a soiled toilet on one corner, a wash-basin next to it and a shower sprinkler on the other corner). Besides, the hot water ran on a water heater placed in the same bathroom, but it had not been turned on prior to our arrival, so the first time we had to shower in cold water.

However, the second time we came to the hotel without a reservation. There was no problem because the hotel was still empty, but this time we got a room at the back of the ground floor which had nothing to do with the first one: it was newly painted and refurbished & the toilet was nice and clean.

I just don't know why we were placed on such a bad room the first time when they had clearly some of the "new rooms" available.

In general, this place is good value for a short stay.
Breakfast is not bad and it's served till late, and if you don't have a lot of lugagge and are not in a hurry, you can even have a walk to the airport in about 30-40 minutes and spare the taxi. In case you need it, they'll also call a taxi for you.
By car, you can reach the town of Dalaman in about 10 minutes, but walking can take a good hour and is not a specially nice place to enjoy the walking. Otherwise, there is nothing else around this hotel than a gas station, so definitely is not a place for a long stay.

Room Tip: Ask for a room that has been recently refurbished (back of the ground floor) to avoid an old and dir...

I stayed here with my wife and 2 children at the start of a driving tour around Turkey. We arrived at Dalaman airport very late and were very glad we had booked a place so close by.
The room was very clean, with modern furniture and well equipped.
Breakfast was typical Turkish eggs, olive, tomatoes, etc.
In summary, it was perfect for a one night stopover.
Only one issue, it was difficult to find in the dark.
