Clean inexpensive hotel in Pamukkale
Posted Jun 5, 2014
Picked this hotel because it was pretty inexpensive and got decent reviews.
The hotel itself was clean and the bathroom worked well.
It did have a nice sized pool, but we did not use it. It is one of the farthest hotels from the Pamukkale Travertines but still within walking distance.
They have a restaurant on site with adequate food and priced as expected in a touristy area.
The hotel was perfectly fine for a budget priced place for a one night stay.
One issue I had was that one of the employees suggested he would take us to the bottom entrance in town for 10 TL, and to the farthest entrance at the outskirts for 20 TL. We decided to do the farther entrance, walk through the long necropolis of Heiropolis, then walk down the Travertines to the entrance/exit in town. At the end of the day, when it came time to pay him, he insisted it was 80 TL, 20 TL x 4. I understood it was 20 TL total, otherwise I would not have paid for the ride at all. So, be careful of arrangements you make for rides and make sure to get it in writing up front.
Also, the covered patio next to the pool is a nice place to sit, but it seems everybody in Turkey smokes, especially the owners and employees of these small hotel/pensions. So even though it is outside, the smoke can still be an issue for non-smokers.
