Pros: the staff and the garden courtyard
Cons: room was a bit small
Location: close to the action without being noisy
the staff at the hotel Gulec were friendly and helpful. We liked the garden courtyard where breakfast was served. Quiet and green, it is an oasis of coolness perfect for breakfast.

An upscale hostelPosted Jul 12, 2013
The staff are very friendly and helpful. The hotel is located down a small side street, about a 10 minute walk from the castle in Bodrum. The rooms offer basic comfort and amenities. The hotel has a nice outdoor patio where breakfast and tea are served.

Next trip, will check out other placesPosted Jul 9, 2013 on Hotels.com
My stay in a single room with two friends was fine, but I may keep looking on a next trip. Location was great and staff were fine. But: Wireless internet was very weak and spotty (FYI, wireless signal strength doesn't depend on the city's internet wiring!), and even mobile internet signals were weak (Vodafone is bad, Turkcell not much better). We suggested they cycle the router but they just blamed it on the city's wiring or something. The room was quite tight (but granted, there were three of us). This was the only place in Turkey with no breakfast buffet, and a rather meager set breakfast plate. They don't give shampoo (!!!) and suggest you buy it locally. No beach towels (unlike other places in Turkey) and they suggest you buy one for 10 lira. There were just two electric outlets in the room, so maybe bring a powerstrip if you have one. The pile of used towels we left in the morning wasn't picked up when the room was cleaned, but we could get more. The shelf in the bathroom was downward slanted and couldn't really hold anything, which is very inconvenient given the overall tight space. The standing shower is sort of designed to get the toilet wet to fit in the space, just don't leave your phone charging in the bathroom as you shower! IMO there are probably places to stay that do better on the amentiies. I mean no shampoo? Really? Staff were nice.

amazing value and great locationPosted Jul 1, 2013 on Hotels.com
If you are looking for great value in Bodrum I can't imagine a better place. Our room was a good size, clean and most importantly had very good air conditioning. The location is a 5 minute walk from the beach and main road of restaurants, clubs, bars and shops in Bodrum yet was very quiet. Breakfast was traditional Turkish food and consited of bread, a boiled egg, cheese, tomoatoes, cucumber, olives and jam. You also had a choice of drinks (tea, coffee, juice etc). It was served outside in the delightful garden featuring olive , lime and lemon trees. The staff were very helpful and msde some great recommendations for restaurants and beaches to visit on the Bodrum peninsular. We were two friends sharing a room and our beds were two singles pushed together but with separate covers and were big enough that it felt like twin beds. The shower was also good. I really have no complaints about this lovely family-run hotel!

The BEST place to stay if you want to see PamakkulPosted Oct 10, 2012 on Hotels.com
This was one of my favorite parts of my trip to Turkey. The family that runs the hotel took us in like we were family. Being three girls traveling alone, it was wonderful to feel safe and taken Care of

Good stayPosted Aug 31, 2012 on Hotels.com
The hotel was good. The staff is amazing. The beds were not very comfortable and the bathroom was tiny. Great location.

Great location, good pricePosted Jul 18, 2012 on Hotels.com
Stay started badly with one of filthiest toilets I have ever seen. However, the owners handled the problem beautifully, being sympathetic and apologetic, and by the time we returned to room, the toilet looked replaced it was so clean! The garden was heavenly for breakfast, and owners made a point of talking to all guests. The air conditioning was the only one that really worked on our entire trip! The location to the waterfront was great, although not as close to museum as we would have liked considering heat.

Almost, but not quitePosted May 15, 2012 on Hotels.com
I thought the hotel's quality and location was fair for the price paid. However, the floor of my room was not clean.
Fantastic HotelPosted May 2, 2012 on Hotels.com
The location cannot be beat, close to all attractions and only a short walk from the main bus station. Incredibly clean, serene rooms with a gorgeous rose garden courtyard. The owner is very kind, understanding, and eager to offer lots of advice to maximize your enjoyment of Bodrum. Plan on staying there again soon.
