Nice hotel with a pretty restaurant
Posted May 19, 2015
We arrived around 12:30 in Pamukkale and the bus station called the hotel to pick us up from the station. We were able to check into our room right away. The room was clean with a balcony and like most other Turkish hotels - small with no elevator. The hotel is about a 10 walk to the bus station and main restaurant strip, and another five minutes to the entrance to the Cotton Castle / travertines. We ate lunch at Mehmet's Heaven on the way which was the most expensive lunch we had (for Turkey) on the whole trip - but I think most restaurants will be pricey in this small town. I wish we had picked up a picnic lunch and brought it to the lovely park that is at the top of the travertines. We ate at the hotel's romantic garden restaurant and had a delicious meal: clay pot chicken and lamb casseroles, local wine and the best lentil soup I've ever had. We stayed in the older part of the hotel, but they have a brand new side as well which looked really fancy. We didn't have time to take a dip in the pool but it looked nice as well. We had to leave at 7am the next morning. Breakfast was just being set out, a pretty big spread, and the owner drove us to the bus station which was so nice. Cash only.
