Great family run hotel in ideal location

"We booked to go one week before for a short break & weren't disappointed. The family are great hosts & nothing was too much bother, the service & cleanliness of the rooms were excellent, though the rooms are in need of a little updating they were adequate. Air con is available at £25 a week & was a godsend! Pool small but very clean. Near to the main areas but not on top of it, & dolmus stops round the corner. Mosque at end of street so woken at 5am but not really a problem to us. Would deffinately go again."

"My husband and I spent two weeks in September 2009 in Hotel Villa Fortin. Rooms were basic but spotlessly clean (thanks to the housekeeper who worked tirelessly). Breakfast was adequate for us and the friendliness of the welcome we received from the Fortin family could not be surpassed. Snacks were also lovely and plentiful. We hit one or two snags regarding travel to airport etc., but it was all sorted out thanks to Achman and Ohran. Mr Fortin senior kept us entertained with his 'magic' while we were waiting to be picked up to go to the airport on our return home. A sincere thanks to all at the Villa Fortin. We hope to be able to return. Mr & Mrs Irvine"

"We went for a fortnight in june bed and breakfast. First impressions basic room no tv or fridge but the room was spotlessly clean. Breakfast consists of turkish bread, cheese, eggs, jam, cucumber, tomato and salami. Plenty of tea or coffee. What can i say about the family that run the hotel. Mr & Mrs Fortin and their 3 sons. They are a lovely family who go out of their way to help in any matter. If you want to go on trips they can tell you all about it, how to get there if you want to do it on your own. We went to ephesus and Akman told us what dolmus(bus) to catch and what to do when you get off the bus etc. Ephesus is just amazing. You are central to everything in kusadasi, we were 5 minutes from wednesday and friday market.Loads of restaurants and bars all 5 minutes walk away. You have to go down to the marina and find the Dejazar wine bar, it is across from the marina, next door to a chinese restaurant. The food is fabulous and the hosts are lovely. They sell John Smiths Smooth in cans 5 Lira buy 1 get 1 free. Back to the family they are the best. Friendly, funny showing us tricks keeping the guests entertained, and the hotel is spotlessly clean. We enjoyed it that much we are going back next year and another bonus the beds are that comfortable we slept really well, cant wait for next year. Thankyou fortin family for a fabulous holiday made even better with your excellent hospitality. Regards Sue & Rob"

"My wife & i have just returned from a 1 week stay at the Fortin. this hotel is a charming "small & friendly" style. spotlessly clean, lovely friendly family run.after a day you feel part of the family.
when we arrived we were shown 3 rooms to choose from.( never happened before in 30 yrs of travel ) laundry changed daily. hot water at all times. buffet style breakfast is continental, bread,butter, cheese, tomatoes, cucumber, olives, honey, jams, boiled eggs, biscuits, tea,coffee, & a toaster. just help yourself to as much as you like. Efes beer,drinks & snacks, just the same prices as in town.mugs of English tea too! as for not being allowed to take food & drink in to the hotel, this is much the norm in most countries now, anyway, i think it's only right to buy your drinks & snacks from the hotel, you can still take them to your room as we did.
i can reccomend the Fortin to anyone wanting to try a holiday in a true Turkish family run hotel,where nothing is too much trouble. free wifi too.
we will be returning next year.
Steve & Elaine, room 27. Sept 10-17th.

"Situated in a "true" Turkish area, but near enough to the tourist bars, shops and restaurants. The Fortin family are superb. Very Helpfull and very friendly. Not just a room number here, a first name one to one guest. Just got back from a 2 week stay and would definitely go back again. Cannot fault this hotel and would recommend it. Thanks to everyone for a really good holiday.

"great hotel everyone staff and guests all made you welcome,basic room but kept very clean,snax at the bar all freshly made to order very cheap.this hotel only earns £3.00 per person per day so that is why i bought most of my food all beer,juice and water from them to give them support.tour operator made a boob and never had our name down on the transport back to airport so the rep would not let us on the bus unless we paid her £50.00,this we found shocking,so mr fortin {the owner} kindly took us to the airport at a much smaller cost,i and my wife couldnt thank him enough,you are all well looked after from this lovely family.its a must go."

Holiday with a Turkish family

" Having had numerous holidays in Turkey over the last 20 years,This year was memorable.
First impression,Location average,Exterior nice to look at.Rooms adequate, clean & tidy.Welcome from staff first rate.You are made aware of their terms straight away just as you would expect. It seems stange to be told,"No food or drink" to be brought into the hotel but within a day,We realised it was sensible,
Water, Drink & food are just as cheap as local places.So why not give them the business.They nare giving you the service & with a smile.
The Fortin family, from grand parents to to grandchildren make you feel at home,They will tell you the best way to enjoy their city.What more could you want.
The rooms are cleaned daily & given fresh laundry,It seems to me that anyone who complains about the Fortins standards have few if any of thier own.
We would definately return.

"the hotel is based so that most of Kusadasi is within walking distance with the bus station just around the corner. This area of the town is slightly cheaper and less touristy- try kents restaurant just around the corner- the most amazing adana kebab! The rooms are basic but with everything you could need and the place is absolutely spotless with a daily maid service and clean towels everyday. The pool area is a sun trap with a shaded area on the terrace and seating amongst the garden area. Breakfast is ample and the terrace serves snacks with the most amazing sandwiches you have ever seen!
What made this holiday for us is the Fortin family. They were warm, friendly, welcoming and helpful. They took time out and nothing was a bother. The larger hotels may offer more stars but the service we have received has been top notch and a very personal service. We feel we have made real family friends with the Fortin family. We cant wait to go back!

"a friend and i stayed in the fortin last summer for 2 weeks..at the ages of 25 and 30, it was like been a teenager all over again, sneaking in and out and night, as the family who ran the hotel looked down on us, and would meet us at the entrance with the key, so we would not have to go into the reception. we were giving out to on 3 occasions for having the air con on too long, and a knocked over ashtray on the patio. the rooms were tiny, just fittin two single beds. the bathroom was also very small, and didnt always have warm water..as it solar panelled. Breakfast was bread, and maybe tomatoes and cheese. They were very strict on what we brought into our room, even bottles of water was frowned upon if not bought from their overpriced snack bar. The staff were not very friendly, the two brithers even had a fight in front of guests ending in ashtrays been thrown. we are going back to kusadasi this year, as its a great resort, but will be stayin well away from the fortin."

"This is a simple no frills hotel with the personal touch offering great value for money. There was always someone around for advice about what to do, where to go and how to get there. Kusadasi is an interesting place made more so by the local knowledge shared with us by the family who ran the hotel. Staying at the Fortin meant that we enjoyed our holiday much more than if we had stayed at a bigger hotel with a higher star rating. Alongside the help and friendliness, the hotel is well situated for the town centre and harbour and very near the place for catching the mini buses (dolmus) to Ephesus or to any of the many beaches.
