“Unfortunate Choice”
Reviewed 20 December 2011

I stayed at the Kaptan Hotel on November 7, 2011 while touring Turkey. It reminded me of a poorer version of the Motel 6. The rooms were smaller than a closet. The 1st room had 2 twin beds, but it was hard to move around. The furniture is very old and the carpet is hideous. I changed rooms because the balcony door did not lock. The second room had a double bed, but it was just as small and hideous.

However, the food in the rooftop restaurant and the ability to view the Harbor were terrific. If they would just sell the rooms as singles and upgrade the furniture and paint, then this would be a good deal. I would not stay in this type of place in the US, let alone another country.

Reviewed 14 November 2011

We stayed here for 3 nights - 10th - 13th November. The sea view was enchanting, we couldn't stop looking at the lovely harbour and mountains so we sat out on the balcony in daylight and moonlight.
The food was good and the waiters and chef were friendly.
The only downside was the noise from a nearby disco - it went on to 3am! If you have the AC on then it muffles it! Take a room at the back with a pool view - it wont be so bad.
The pool area was very nice and the pool water very clean.
The good more than outweighs the bad so we would go back!
We loved Alanya.

Everything good in the Kaptan hotel: food, rooms, staff, location.

Only one minus - very very old hair dryer )) If you have long hair you should have your one.

Reviewed 31 March 2008

Stayed here at Kaptan Hotel one week in the last week of march.
This was out of season, so not to many guests were staying there.
Employees and service very good and very friendly.
Rooms are nice and clean (at least mine was).
The bathroom was good. Big mirror, shaving mirror, bathtub with both a hand shower and full shower.
The rooms are cleaned every day.
The room also had a television with about 40 channels, some of them film channels, and a variety of turkish, american, german, french and english channels. The television was really small (max 14 inches).
I also had a sea view (of the harbour) and a balcony.
The breakfast in on the top floor (5th) with a very nice view.
The breakfast is a buffe with the choice from different kinds of cheeses, boiled eggs or fried to your choice.
Also, some fruits and cerials.
juice and coffee is also included.
The swimmingpool and pool area is actually on the 2 floor, but this is because the hotel is built in the hills.
The location is very sentral. Just 2 minutes walk to the sentral shopping and restaurant and nighclub area.
At night the sounds and music from the nightclub can be heard quite clearly allthought they are 300-500 meters away.
Kaptan hotel has a hotelbar but I did not try it out, but it looked nice and friendly. The also have a restaurant on the other side of the street. Also very good. Excellent good, and friendly service.

  • Liked — central location and friendly staff
  • Disliked — smaller pool than what I thought from pictures. noice from nearby discoes.
