Bodrum Hotels: 98 reviews and 161 photos

We stayed here for 2 whole days before being moved! This hotel is in the noisiest street in Bodrum within a stone's throw of Halikarnos nightclub which plays mind-numbingly loud music until 5am. The noise is unbearable. The hotel is jaded and badly in need of updating. We moved rooms because there were bare wires poking out behind the bed. The next room was worse. The ancient pipes (the plumbing went across the hall ceilings) vibrated all round the hotel and sounded like a cement mixer every time we pulled the toilet lever. The tiles were filthy black with mildew and cracked, and the sink, toilet and shower looked as if they had never seen a cloth. There was rubbish and broken chairs outside our window and the floor was made up of pieces of blue misfitting carpet. The wooden fixture behind the bed holding in a full-width mirror was cracked and tilting badly, and looked as if it was ready to fall on someone's head. This was a terrible shame, because the owner, Raif was very kind and couldn't do enough for us. If only he could get a grip on quite how delapidated his hotel is and put in some sound-proofing, renovate and repair the hotel and give it a decent clean! I had a miserable time here and say it is quite unsuitable for anyone at the moment.

Unique Qualities: This hotel was really authentic and quaint, if only it was cleaned up and sound-proofed. There was clutter everywhere and from the reception area, you could see lots of chairs and rubbish through a large central expanse of glass which looked like a forgotten room; maybe a lounge from long ago. Maybe, it could have been hidden a bit better. Outside, there were lots of comfy seating cushions, which I liked. There was a tiny swimming pool on the roof. It was right opposite the sea. The promenade was closed off to cars. Facilities? What facilities! The best kept secret!
