Hotel Istankoy Kusadasi
36 Traveller reviews from Holiday Watchdog
"The location is superb and the staff are really nice BUT... this hotel is full of british chavs. There is a 24 hour bar and this hotel is really small, meaning many of the rooms are just above the bar. It's not an exaggeration to say it's noisy all thro the night, drunken people singing, as well as banging doors and kids running up and down the stairs.
Also the air conditioning (which u pay extra for) was temperamental in our rooms and the bathrooms were not nice. The showers ran only cold water after appx 8pm and the cold tap on both sinks spluttered brown water right out of the sink in both our rooms. The toilet seat was broken in one and both bathrooms were grubby.
Definitely the worst hotel I've ever stayed in for noise."

"Hotel Istankoy is an amazing experience. Anyone who has been there will agree. I visited in summer 2000. And can't wait to return. The staff are the nicest people you could hope to meet. I made some great friends. The staff are hard working, helpful and friendly. The location is brilliant and the weather fantastic. Roll on june 2005 so i can be there again.
Big hello to everyone there especially Murat!"

"Thanks for a great holiday. The staff at the istankoy are second to none, they cant do enough for you they seem to be on shift 24 /7. The hotel is very clean and well looked after. It is situated right across from the beach and just far enough from the shops and night life. We give thanks to Jem,Murat ,Elvis, Gehan ,Ozz, Reece, Oscar and Curly you made our holiday you were helpful and we like to think of you as our friends.Our only gripe is that the pool is smaller than we expected but it wasnt a problem.We will come back and see you all soon. Great company,great weather,great holiday!! Lots-a-love Sharon,Jake and Josh.xxxx"

The staff can't do enough for you
"We went to Istankoy in October 2003. The rooms are immaculate and cleaned every day. The staff can't help you enough. Anything you want they are only too pleased to help you with. They are trully wonderful people and make your holiday plain sailing. There is someone at the reception 24hrs a day. They have a laugh and a joke with you and make you feel extremely welcome. They work roughly 18hrs a day for hardly any pay but have constantly got a smile on their faces. It was a holiday that we will never forget because of the sheer pleasure we had by staying there. We recommend ISTANKOY 100%."

one man and his dog
"we have been going to Kusadasi for the last 20 odd years,staying in all types of places, the Istankoy comes top. The staff are brill the hotel is basic but spotless for a 2 star grading, and 24/7 hot water. The manager(Febzi and his dog bambino) are both nuts and up for a laugh anytime of the day. We will be booking for 3 weeks next may god willing. Definately worth a try."

"Usually stay at the fortin, but decided for a change last October, Hotel clean, room good size we had a triple, Balcony overlooked nothing but an alleyway, couldnt really sit out as it was small, staff were very friendly but not much conversation, food was priced ok although a bottle of efes was expensive, last but not least the pool, pictures very misleading it is on the roof and very very small, it is tin, cold and although clean it smells horrible, that was the only downfall really, but wont go again but we did try but once ur happy with an hotel just stay there thats why its the fortin for us, all the way."
