This might not be the best hotel in Bergama but we found it handy, convenient and pretty good, although some parts of the building are a little bit old and tired (like the stairs - but fortunately there is a good working lift). The staff we met was very nice, helpful and friendly, both the man that does the night shift as well as the Macedonian lady that does the day shift (plus the man that fixed our shower head just five minutes after reporting the problem to the front desk). We had room #306, which is long and large. It actually has a single bed, a double bed, a table, two chairs, a desk, a small refrigerator, a wardrobe, Air Conditioning and a heater. The beds were comfortable as well as the pillows, but the bed sheet was a little bit strange, as it looked more like a bedspread than like a thin bed sheet (we found the same type of "bed sheet" in other hotels around Turkey). On the other hand, it is true that the furniture, the lamps and the switches were somehow old. The clean ensuite bathroom was the best part of the room, as it was completely new and very spacious. The shower was like a science-fiction shower (with buttons and colour lights), hot water run very well and the towels were good and pleasant. Wifi worked very well both in the room, in the reception area and in the attached breakfast room. By the way, the breakfast was a buffet with just cold dishes (no hot options :-(), so it didn't impress us. In terms of food, there are several dining places along the hotel's street like the restaurant attached to it. However, we have to say that we didn't like it so much, so we are recommending others you can find on the way to the old town. Actually, if you walk from the hotel to the old town along the same sidewalk, you should find some good and popular Turkish restaurants after 200 meters, more or less (they are found just before a good patisserie). And yes, this hotel is far away from the old town and the Akropolis. Therefore, it is wise to take a local bus, which costs 3 TL and takes you to the old town, the Red Basilica and a crossing from where the lower station of the cable car (to reach the Akropolis) is just a 5 or 10 minutes walk. This is what we did, but then, on our way back to the hotel, we walked down from the Akropolis and through the old town, a very nice and pleasant stroll (and then, if the hotel's roof pool is open, it is the perfect ending for the day). On the other hand, this hotel is convenient if you are arriving in (or leaving) Bergama by bus (there are a couple of bus offices just 50 meters away). Have a good journey!
Very comfortable hotel in central area with the tiniest lift I've ever encountered! Excellent, generous breakfasts, large comfortable room and extremely modern shower! Roof top pool with great views. Helpful staff.
We stayed here only for one night. The hotel looks a little bit worn down, but the rooms are really nice, large and clean. Staff is very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was very good. When we left, the owner gave us 3 botlles of fresh water because we have told him that we had a long trip for the next hours. It was very kind of him and we appreciated it.
From the outside the hotel looks a little bit worn down, but the rooms are really nice, large and clean. Staff is very friendly and helpful. There is a swimming pool on the roof. It looks a bit scruffy, but hey it's a pool, it's clean and it works. The lights, music etcetera in the sophisticated shower cabin didn't work and the cabin seemed to be leaking because the bathroom floor got really wet after I used it.
The hotel staff was incredibly kind to our kids. The pool had been closed for the season, a disappointment, but seeing the temperature 20 C, not surprising. The family room was roomy enough for the kids to have a pillow fight and a game of chase. The breakfast was plentiful. We may have been the only guests, so the helpful staff rearranged the tomatoes and cucumbers after each trip to the buffet. The shower had lights, music and hundreds of jets, but we had a hard time keeping it from leaking out onto the floor, and the water smelled terrible. Overall, the staff was doing the best with what it had, but don't expect the 4 Seasons.
The worlds smallest elevator must be located in this hotel. Very basic rooms, mattresses hard and priced higher than what we had to pay with ocean view at Kusadasi. Friendly and helpful service. The restaurant next door is owned by same family, so if you ask for recommendations, they will walk you right over to a place with no prices on the menu. I will stay elsewhere next time as this was average at best, but priced at a 4 star level, which this is not. I will say the employees were very nice and when we needed extra basics, these were brought to the room quickly.
Stayed here on a tour we had a twin share room ( a double bed and a single) sitting area and very small balcony. The shower was amazing, heaps of jets, music, lights! Staff were helpful and there was a good breakfast.
My partner and I booked this hotel through hostel world. It wasn't horrible but there just wasn't anything special or particularly nice about the place. Most annoyingly it says breakfast was included, we were never offered breakfast and I wish I had known it was included, the cheeky staff never mentioned it!!! The bathroom was modern and clean. We had 2 single beds when we had booked a double, the room smelt of cigarette smoke and the duvets were an annoying fabric which kept slipping on the bed in the night. We had actually made an amendment to our arrival dates through Hostelworld which wasn't obviously passed on to the Hotel. While they didn't charge us for the night that we had cancelled through our booking on hostel world, (the correct procedure) we were made to feel as though it was our fault and it was brought up both times we passed through the reception after the matter had been discussed upon our arrival.
We stayed here for one night only. The plus was that a family of 4 could be accommodated in one room for a good price. The room was clean and probably the highlight is the bathroom which is a recent update. The pool was green! half empty. The service was ok. The car park non existent as we parked on the busy road outside the hotel. We would next time travel on to foca.
Very 'local' style hotel. Stayed in a 'family room' that was just a room with several beds in a row. Cold water only in the hand-basin, cheap beds and mattresses, very small lift. On-street parking only. Felt that the staff were 'monitoring' at breakfast rather than 'waiting' - gave a feeling of being under observation all the time! To be fair the staff did seem to be trying - a couple of them (the owners?) did speak a little English and someone had prepared a couple of information sheets about the town with places to go etc. But the hotel is badly let down by its 1980's feeling (plumbing, disco lighting in the lift, furniture etc.) As it was November we didn't look at the pool on the terrace - this could be a redeeming feature in summertime but going by the parts of the hotel we saw I wouldn't be expecting to much. Having stayed at the Berksoy just down the road previously I would say the Berksoy is much better value for money even though a bit more expensive.
