A wonderful spot to stay and a good room with a very comfortable King size bed.
Great shower that was spoiled by the outlet being partially blocked.

... it was a sea side type home and a 3 storey host, it was nice, but again not something that I liked as it was way too poshy for me.
Anyway we stayed there for 9 days, during which I didn’t do much but study Turkish, go to one nearby city called Şirince which was 'known’ for it’s wines, went swimming a few times, went to an internet café and bludged some internet, apart from that was bored out of my mind for the rest of the time.

The colours are ...
... Ancient Roman Temple of Augustus right next to it. The temple is one of the oldest Roman ruins in the world, so I definitely had to see it. The mosque has kind of been incorporated into the temple ruins its quite cool. The mosque was really pretty, the grounds were in the process of restoration and the work they had done so far was amazing. And the view of the city from there was amazing too. ...
... and we’re looking around for someone holding a sign with our names. Nobody in evidence. Then we see someone holding a sign saying "Toto Tours." Huh? The transfer was not booked in the name of Toto Tours.
It turns out that our guide, Atilla, who lives in Istanbul, had flown in around 2pm and had arranged for a van to take us all to the hotel together! We’re thrilled, and use the ATM to get local money, and finally we see the driver holding ...
