DEAR READERS, I THOUGHT I HAD ALREADY PUBLISHED THIS ENTRY IN ITS ENTIRETY BUT NOW I SEE ONLY AN EARLIER DRAFT. I WILL ATTEMPT BELOW TO RECREATE THE ENTRY AGAIN.
I awoke in the comfortable Melrose Place in Pamukkale this morning wondering how I worship this Eastertide in Turkey's version of Petticoat Junction. It wasn't Uncle Joe that was …
Don't let the gorgeous images of the cotton castle with aquamarine pools fool you. I was not only disappointed, but embittered and bitten - not ideal for a destination for which we needed to take a 10+ hour bus ride before and after!
The geological gem that initiated our trek to this part of Turkey was Pamukkale, which translates to " …
After another delicious meal at our hotel we headed into town to visit the ancient Greek town of Ephesus. It was one of the largest cities in the Mediterranean in the 1st century BCE, with a population of 250 000! Crazy! The place was huge and has been well preserved and restored enough to really give a sense of what the city would have …
After a pretty quick 3 hour bus ride we arrived in Pamukkale. We got to choose one of two stone rooms at the hotel when we arrived Have a look at the photo. We chose this hotel because of the good reviews, but also the awesome looking stone room with round bed! Hilarious!
We popped our stuff in and then headed off to the south gate to look at …
Made our way to Pamukkale, which we spotted from some way off due to the Ayres-Rock-style white calcium rock formation on the horrizon. Great family Otel (not Hotel) awaited us, before we trekked up to the Travertines - calcium deposits left over after the CO2 evaporates from the natural spring water. Beautiful white rock formations. Went for a …

Historical Traveler Reviews Melrose House Hotel Pamukkale
Great Little Hotel
I met the owner, Mehmet at the bus station in Dinazli. He drove me to the hotel. The hotel was great. Rooms are very clean and quiet. Nice pool as well. What really impressed me was the food. They were the best meals I'd had in Turkey. The family always had time to give me travel information and a hot tea.

Friendly vibe and great rooms
we loved our stay at this family run hotel. the rooms were spacious and newly renovated with big comfortable beds and clean bathrooms. Deliciious home cooked meals are available and are great for vegetarians. We loved sitting by the swimming pool playing backgammon and meeting other travellers. great value for money!
Great friendly place
I agree with all what is said here about Allgau Hotel in Pamukkale: good and clean rooms, affordable price, beautiful garden and swimming pool, great meals, and the most important - very friendly helpful and nice owners - Mehmet and Umi (If you two read this - big HALLOW from Vlady from Israel!)
Un lugar estupendo para relajarse
Éste es uno de mis destinos favoritos un Turquía, y tuve suerte de haberme hospedado en un hotel tan agradable y relajante. Los dueños de este establecimiento son cariñosos y acogedores. Se esfuerzan para introducir a los viajeros a la cultura turquesa, y dan consejos detallados sobre los sitios turísticos disponibles. Ulmi es un cocinero tremendo, y es célebre por su cocina tradicional turquesa. La comida siempre es memorable y deliciosa. El aspecto especial de este establecimiento es que los parientes viven en la misma calle, y esto quiere decir que los clientes tienen la rara oportunidad de interaccionar con familias turquesas típicas, ya que todos están involucrados en el negocio.
Sunny Rooms and Sunny Hosts
After staying at the Hotel Bella in Selcuk, the Hotel Allgau was recommended to us, and what a recommendation it was! Arriving there in the dead of night, we were offered dinner, a lovely room, and conversation. As it turns out, fellow teachers from our school had also wandered in! We had heard about the Allgau from previous travellers, so knew it would be good. But, I must say, the cheerful, large corner room with a real bathtub, clean as a whistle, bright and airy, air-conditioned and a huge balcony, was exactly what we needed after a long drive. The owners were terrific, and the food was fantastic. They welcomed our pets, and the price was very inexpensive. We had such a lovely time! I would recommend the Hotel Allgau to anyone.
A great place to chill out
This is one of my favourite destinations in Turkey and I have been lucky to have stayed in such a pleasant and relaxing hotel. The owners of this establishment are warm and welcoming and work hard to ensure travellers are introduced to Turkish culture and give detailed advice about the sites available. Ulmi is a tremendous cook and is renowned for traditional Turkish cuisine, the food is always memorable and delicious. The special aspect of this establishment is that the extended family live in the same street and this means customers are given a rare opportunity to interact with typical Turkish families as they are all involved in the business.

Allgau Hotel: a great place to stay.
Me and other three friends of mine booked this hotel via Internet and spent there just one night. The hotel is very clean and modern. The room are spacious and have a great bathroom with a comfortable bathtub. We ate in the hotel a delicious dinner and spent a great evening with Mehmet and his wife. They're very kind and always have a cup of tea to share with their guests! I recommend this hotel if you have to spend some time in Pamukkale.

One of the friendliest places we're been to.
Our family of 4 stayed at the Allgau Hotel in Pamukkale and I must say Meymet and Ummu are the kindest people we have ever met. Our room was in the new building. The clean and sunny rooms were very comfortable. Our favorite part was Ummu's cooking. Absolutely delicious!! What a joy to sit out on the terrace and enjoy. When our family goes back to Turkey, we will definately be coming to stay again.
Our stay at the Allgau Hotel was a great experience, which started with a recommendation to stay there and we couldn't have been happier with the friendliness and genuine hospitality provided by the young couple who operated the hotel. Our room was in the new section and was bright, airy and clean. It was terrific to go out on the balcony and catch views of the village and hills beyond. A minor issue is the lack of clothes hanging space but this was only a minor inconvenience. The home cooked meals were spectacular and a good price so there was no need to look elsewhere. It was good to sit outside and enjoy the food, a glass of local wine and the company of fellow travellers. Our host looked after our ongoing transport arrangements and even waited with us to ensure we got on the right bus. That capped off a great few days.
