.Alanya was a memorable place to stay. Be sure to take a cab up to the castle, have it wait while you take photos then drop you off at the 'Turret' at the marina to the east of the castle. The marina, cafes, restaurants and laneways all waiting to be discovered.
Hotel looks exactly as shown in the pictures. Hotel is situated in a few levels and each room has a separate entrance. Several rooms were offered to choose from, which was very considerate. The room was immaculately clean, linen was fresh. There is a safe box in the room to store your valuables if needed. Hotel is just minutes away from the Red Tower and very close to downtown Alanya. Taxi to downtown is 10 TL (5USD). There is a shuttle bus from Gazipasa airport to downtown Alanya, so there is no need to pay for expensive taxi ride.
Breakfast should be mentioned separately. Food was amazing, made to the order and abundant. Selection of home made preserves was delicious. Breakfast is in a Turkish style, so do not expect oatmeal or flakes, but be prepared to enjoy very tasty local food.
Not everyone speaks English there but a front desk attendant would call their English speaking staff to answer the questions. I was leaving to the airport at 6am and got fruits and cakes packed for me, which was a very nice touch.
There are 75 stairs to the hotel, so please make sure you aware of that.
I would highly recommend this hotel to everyone, as it provides exceptional value for the money.
A warm Mediterranean climate, beaches, and rich cultural history make Alanya a popular destination on the Turkish Riviera. Notable sights include Damlataş Cave and the 13th-century Alanya Castle. Long, inviting stretches of sandy beaches run nearly the entire length of the city, with the Taurus Mountains providing a backdrop to the warm Mediterranean waters.
