Traveling as a group,ourselves, daughter of 4 and father in his 70's.
We were doing a round trip from Bordrum, to Pamukkale where we stayed over night then on to Ephesus and back to Bodrum by car.
We had a look in a few hotels before deciding on the Venus.
They made us feel very welcome, the rooms were freshly decorated and very comfortable. The food was excellent and plentiful.
Highly recommend this hotel.

My boyfriend and I just came to Pamukkale for the day and we wished we stayed longer! We booked one of those package tours from the U.K to Marmaris that includes flight and accomodation, so we were based there for 1 week. We decided that we only had half a day to see Pamukkale (crazy huh!) and after we dashed around the ruins and travertines for only a couple of hours (we spent half the day driving!) we needed a cool drink and to try some real Turkish food. We knew that Venus Hotel's restaurant got great reviews, so we went there and were totally amazed by the high quality of food value of the price! Both were fantastic!!
So we decided that the next time we come to Turkey we'll not be taking a package tour, will spend some decent time in Pamukkale (it's beautiful) and will definitely stay at this hotel.

I already knew about Venus Hotel from the information in my guide books - that it was a very good hotel with excellent food, but when my family and I arrived we realised that this was a fantastic place for families (there were couples there also that seemed very comfortable) and it was the best place we stayed in for all of Turkey!

I am from Italy and have come to Turkey before 14 years ago, but this was the first time with my family. The children have loved travelling in Turkey, but Pamukkale because of the very nice people here was their favourite place. Here they had a beautiful garden to play in, a swimming pool and the owners had just put in wireless internet, so the children were very happy! One of the boys was sick when we arrived there and the owners and their workers were so helpful with him, giving us extra information for doctors and special food for him. He was very comfortable here and didn't want to leave! Thankyou to everyone at Venus Hotel - we will come back!

Historical Traveller Reviews of Venus Hotel

Felt like visiting an old friend

from samsays
In every way, the service was unexpectedly wonderful:

When we pulled up to the hotel, Karyn (who I had never met before or even talked to previously) came out to greet us like we were family.

Since Karyn knew I was a photographer and it was getting close to sunset, she arranged a driver to take me back to the terraces to make sure I got back in time - and you definitely want to be there at sunset! (in case you're interested you can check these and other pictures I took in the Aegean Region at http://www.samsays.com/AegeanRegion.htm)

Without my asking, Ibraham called our tour company to verify the car to the airport the next morning - AND also changed the time from 6:15 to 7 to give us more sleep, as this gave us extra sleep before our return back to HK.

OK, it is a small boutique hotel but it is conveniently located in the small village, and there was no TV or phone in the room, but Ibraham personally knocked on our door for our wake-up call

All in all, such wonderful touches, such friendly service and help, good food and super location that I whole-heartedly recommend it to any traveler spending a night or longer in Pamukkale

Simply the best

from EdinburghRon
Anne and I just loved this hotel. The room (with balcony like all rooms) was smallish but tastefully decorated and quite charming. The food was local and of good quality. But what really makes the Venus Hotel special is the way in which the hosts - Ibrahim and Karyn - give individual attention to all guests. They create such a friendly and welcoming ambience and are so ready to help guests with any question or problem. The combination of high quality and competitive price makes this hotel attractive for every type of traveller. Just brilliant...

sweet venus

from ttravel_lisa
I have stayed at Venus hotel few days ago for one night and I really liked it.Ibrahim and Karen are very nice and super friendly and they drove me up to Pamukkale and Ibrahim guided to me for some time which was excellent.I have learned a lot of things in a short time.
Pamukkale is a small town and it is pretty close from Denizli which is main city.There are minibuses every 20 minutes from bus station.
I would stay there again and again ...

Truly Charming Hotel

from nativnewyorker
We booked this hotel online after reading tripadvisor reviews, and the room we had was even more appealing - homey, warm, with a balcony and window with a view of the travertines - and a large, modernistic bathroom - than the web pictures. I could gladly have spent more days in that room. The staff was friendly and eager to make our stay special, and even cooked me the plate of spaghetti I was craving. The only drawback is that the hotel is maybe a 15 minute walk to the travertines and the few stores/restaurants at the base. One night we needed to get something at a drug store (and found a lovely family-run one in "town") but the walk back and forth in the dark was kind of creepy. The hotel itself was very welcoming and comfortable, and easy on the wallet.

A Great little respite

from Traveller-in-joy
We stayed two nights and it was lovely to come back to such a relaxing place at the end of each day.
The room and the meals were faultless and everything we could have wished for in a small Hotel.
The place was well situated to visit the Travertines.

Best place to stay in Pamukkale

from TravelerEB
We had a wonderful visit at Hotel Venus. Ibrahim, Karen and "Mom" were so welcoming--giving us directions, feeding us delicious food, being absolutely terrific hosts. Plus the wireless internet was a great plus. We would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone going to Pamukkale. It's THE place to stay.

we loved it!

from Ruthicles
The Venus surpassed our expectations, even after reading some of the great reviews. We were taking a break from the coast with the children and stayed 2 nights rather than the one we had half intended, because we had such a peaceful and pleasing time.
The food is delicious and the swimming pool a bonus because it doesn't reek of chemicals.

Ibrahim, his brother and Karen were a great source of information which we made full use of and rather than shlepp to Efes for the day we were advised to see Aphrodisia instead and were delighted we did.

I would stay here again en route to somewhere because it was so good. Thank you everyone at the Venus

Wonderful!!!

from globedecker
Our stay at the Venus was one of the highlights of our Turkey tr?p. The gracious hospitality, good food, and amazing value for the money make it a great find. Dont expect luxury, but if you want clean comfy accomodatations close to the terraces and a swimming pool to boot, you cannot go wrong!

.Highly recommended

from mangafas
Absolutely the best solution for Pamukkale.We liked everything,Ibrahim, his family, his wonderful girlfriend. Highly recommended Fotis+Nikos

Hard beds, but still wonderful!

from Gregdu
We stayed here for just 1 night in July '06 during our driving trip across the country (driving was pretty easy and not a problem, despite all the warnings you get otherwise). We are a gay couple, and I was a bit worried about how we'd be received in Turkey in general (no problems anywhere), and esp. how it'd be at a small "hostel" type place. This is normally not how I prefer to stay.

My worries were for naught, as it turns out, and the hosts of the hotel are lovely, welcoming, and very helpful. As others have said, the food served at their restaurant was just about the best we had during our entire trip, its not hyperbole! We met some other nice people staying and the hotel, and overall had a lovely time there. Its a pity that Pamukkale doesn't seem to have more to offer these days, the travertines are pretty much dry and sad, otherwise it'd be nice to spend more time here. When you figure that a room, breakfast, and dinner for 2 including a bottle of wine was approx $65, how can you complain? It was a delightful surprise and I recommend it highly. It was a memorable part of our trip.

They do prefer that you pay in cash, so be noted of that.

My only 2 issues were the hardness of the beds (not unexpected, I must add) and the pool looked a little iffy... I think it was the chemicals in the water and not algae, but you couldn't see the bottom of the pool... it would've been nice to have a dip after a long day, but we didn't chance it. If not for those 2 things, I'd have given an 'excellent' rating.

Top Local Tips for Pamukkale

Ancient Pool near Travertines You can take a look at the hot pool in the building at the top of the terraces without paying admission to it - the cashier at the entrance sells admittance to the pool itself, but entrance to the building is free since that is the only place allowed to serve food and beverages on top. Had I known this, I would have gone in, seen what the pool looked like (smaller than I expected, and unpleasantly crowded in August) and saved myself a hefty admission fee.

See the sunset from the travertines As our hosts accurately informed us, the admission ticket to the travetines and Hierapolis is good for 24 hours, so you can go up into Hierapolis for the sunset view from the travetines and return the next morning to visit the site at greater length. The Hierapolis site itself is not very well interpreted. If you want to get more out of it than we did, buy and read a guide before you enter the site.

Pamuakkale This was our second trip to Pamukkale. We loved this natural wonder so much 12 years ago, we decided to vist it again with our kids. Time has really paid a price to this area. 12 years ago it was amazing to climb arounds the wonderful blue pools on the cliffs. Today most of the pools closed off to the public and there is no water in them. The do have some man made pool and you are able to go in them. Sitting by the filled pools on the west side of the cliffs is a wonderfule spot to watch the sunset. The thermal pool is fun to vist and swim in, but is does get crowed when all the big tourist buses pull in. It also an additional fee to go in. Ruins are fun to walk through. Be aware that the pictures you see in books and posters of Pamukkale are not really what it looks like today. We were a bit disappointed by how time had taken is toll on the town and the pools. The town is basically hotels, resturants, markets and a couple of tourist shops.
