Travel Blogs from Pamukkale
The bus arrives on time and we board. Upon locating our seats we are disappointed to find that it is not like the overnight buses in Latin America, with seats that often recline so far back it's like a bed. This is just another nice bus similar to the one we travelled on from Ankara to Göreme. We are due to arrive at our destination at 06:30 the …
Rough Guide tells us that the entrance to the pools from the village of Pamukkale involves removing one's shoes and traipsing barefoot through the limestone pools which march in steps all the way to the top of the escarpment. Here the ancient Roman spa city of Hierapolis stands, today in ruins. It sounds a little daunting, and …
We arrived in Izmir pretty excited about what was to come. Three days driving amongst some of the most spectacular Roman ruins in the world. While I will leave a discussion on the comedy that was my 'skills' driving in Turkey for a blog entry that can accommodate over a thousand words (following extensive planning to capture the absurdity), I will …
We decided to make our trip more like a holiday and slept in later on Sunday, then got up for another fantastic guest house breakfast. The forecast hadn't predicted good weather, but things were looking sunny and clear, so we made a slight alteration to our plans. We had intended to split the day, spending part of it back at the travertines, and …
Upon returning to Pamukkale, we grabbed a quick lunch and then walked in the direction of the travertines. We paid our 20TL entrance fee and then walked to the start of the terraces. We had to take off our shoes until we were at the top because they aren't allowed in order to protect the mineral deposits.
As I mentioned in an earlier blog …

Historical Traveler Reviews Venus Hotel Pamukkale
Once we accepted that the hotel options are limited in this part of Turkey, we went to the Venus and were quite pleased. These are modest accommodations but the rooms are clean and cheery, the people are great, and the food is terrific. I think all of the rooms have balconies--great for sitting out at the end of the evening.
A good choice
We were recommended this hotel by the pension we stayed at in Selcuk and everything they told us about Venus was true - we could not find any faults in the standard and quality of the food and rooms. We will definitely stay there again when we come back to Turkey next year.
Everyone at Venus Hotel were very nice and very helpful. The food was tasty. Nice heated and clean room with hot water. We enjoyed or stay a lot.
Venus Hotel - night of March 30, 2006
Ibrahim and Karen are wonderful hosts. Not only will they make your stay comfortable, but will help you with hotel reservations at your next destination, etc.
Would we return there? Absolutely.

Hooray for hot water
My friends and I travelled to Turkey for the solar eclipse, but also to see this wonderful country. Travelling in March can be good because the crowds are smaller - (except around the eclipse areas!) but that also means that not all the hotels in Turkey are fully set up for the cooler weather. We were so glad when we got to this hotel to find heating in our rooms - and most important, 24 hour hot water!!!! I'm sure other people who've been to Turkey around this time would agree with me how important this is with the cold nights and mornings. Thankyou to the owners of Venus Hotel for making us feel so welcome.
Thankyou Trip Advisor!
I just want to say thankyou to Trip Advisor and all the people who have sent the reviews about this hotel. Normally I am hesitant to follow reviews, but I took the advice of these people and stayed at this hotel - and they were so right especially about the food!!! And I was lucky enough to stay in the newly renovated rooms there - the 2 nights I stayed were the most comfortable of my entire trip to Turkey.
The best food we had in turkey.
We were so happy to get to Venus hotel in Pammukale when travelling in Turkey. The hotel we stayed at the night before was not good at all, but at Venus the food was superb - the best we tasted in Turkey and the beds so comfortable, we were grateful to have a good nights sleep. Thankyou to the kind hosts who made our stay fantastic - we will tell all our friends!
We loved it here. The food, oh yeh. And the pool - just what you need after a day of exploring. Highly recommended, what more can we say! Oh, the hospitality is great!
Stay at Venus!
Of all the hotels and pensions to chose from in Pamukkale, I'm glad I chose Venus. The amazing home cooked food was the best I tasted in Turkey by far and the friendly staff and owners were more than helpful with any information I needed for the rest of my trip. It was definitely worth staying more than one night and using it as my base while I explored this area of Turkey.
Great Place to stay
My girlfriend and I stayed at the Venus Hotel in Pamukkale in Turkey.Be warned when you get off bus that you will be hassled for places to stay.Competition is fierce.However if you want a quiet place to stay with excellent home cooked food,a clean hotel with swimming pool and friendly service---then this is the place for you.Tell them that Justin (south african) and natalie (australian) told you.
