As previous reviews state, unfortunately they're all true. A big gap under the door so you hear all the noise so definitely no sleep this holiday. Food is cooked by Mama, felt like staying at grandma's house rather than at a hotel as food is brought to you rather than buffet style. Very bland but edible if you have spent all your money! Kind people but very basic hotel. Shower sprays everywhere, shower curtain is flimsy so whole bathroom gets soaked, so much so it needed mending as water from our bathroom leaked to the room below us! Pool is very small. Tucked away hotel but about 10-15 mins walk to beach and bar street.

Room Tip: Ground floor has nicer rooms but we choose not to spend the extra as you would still hear all the noise

Let's be clear. The Mersyas is a budget hotel and provides a good base for those of us who have more time and less money.

Firstly the good things. it is run by a friendly family and Mama is the boss. The pool is clean and there is nearly always a place to sunbathe. I was on half board and I really enjoyed the Turkish food. As with all budget hotels you pay extra for the A/C and the safe. I found I could get the free internet in my room and stream movies which was a bonus.

Now the not so good. It's a bit tatty unless you upgrade. It's not really a tourist hotel. It has mostly Syrians and there was some indication that these were being moved to Kos on a regular basis. This made the hotel appear unsafe due to the gang running the trade although I never experienced any trouble. The hotel is close to a mosque so be prepared for the 5.30 am prayer.

Overall I would say this is a good hotel for the seasoned traveller but you may want to pay more if you want a real holiday experience. I would have rated is higher but for the ( hopefully temporary ) issues.

The rooms on the first floor are renovated and is better than the other floors. There is a working elevator, so-so breackfast, a pool (did not try), wifi in the lobby only. Difficult to take a shower as the showerhead had only one hole and once the water comes through you feel like you are being shot...the hotel is near a mosque so be prepare to be wakeup at 5 in the morning. The beach is at 15-20 min walk from the hotel.

Travelled with 5 other friends, paying a reasonably cheap price for six 18 year olds.
Rooms had:
No Fridge
3 faulty safes- so had to extra £10 for one in reception
No Air-conditioning- unless £30 was paid
Showers didn't give consistent warm water
Bathroom curtain didn't reach floor so wet floor

The food was reasonable and the pool good along with the views from the rooms.

Room Tip: try get a room on the bottom, much better

This June we returned to the Marsyas Hotel for another holiday and found Mama, her family and the staff as welcoming as last year. We enjoyed a wonderful ten days and are looking forward to returning next year.

Room Tip: Go for the upgraded rooms.
