눉If I have to nitpick, breakfast tends to get get a bit dull - there could be more variation. Turkey has such amazing breads yet the hotel only serves regular toast.
Also, the sliding door to the room balcony was a bit jammed up so do get it checked by the hotel staff.
눇My friends and I spent 2 weeks on a road trip across Turkey. We stayed at a number of hotels, some far posher (and expensive) than Sergeant Hotel. Yet the service we received at Sergeant blew us away and makes this place our favourite hotel during our trip.
Sergeant is a family owned hotel and the owners (2 brothers) are incredibly warm and genuine. They exemplify what TRUE service is. We drove to Kusadasi and reached after midnight. Yet, one of owners waited for us (and he was still smiling). He personally lead us to the free parking spot, gave us a room with an ocean view, and seeing that my friend had swollen feet from driving so long, he fetched us ice and asked us if we needed anything else. Later, the gentlemen purchased bus tickets for us and even got us a discount on the tickets. When we checked out, he gave us a great foreign exchange rate (we paid in Turkish Lira). And the whole time, he had a smile on his face.
The other staff are helpful and kind, and always seem to be happy to help.
The hotel is conveniently located right on Ladies Beach and many of the rooms have an ocean view. In fact, its very hard to get beach-front hotels at Kusadai, at an affordable price, but Sergeant has managed it. The room (we booked a Triple room) was clean, a bit old (or nostalgic depending on the way you look at it) but well maintained and had a balcony. Bathrooms were very clean and modern though. The lift is one of those older models - they might look a bit scary but they work fine.
All in all, if you're looking for an affordable beach-front hotel at Kusadasi, Sergeant Hotel is the place to go. Sure, the place is a bit old but the rooms are clean and well maintained, WiFi works great and the place is right on the beach. Whatever they lack in terms of sleekness, they make up in terms of genuine care, warmth and great service.
