Ates Pension

Ates Pension Kas TurkeyWith 15 rooms including some hostel dorm rooms, the Ates Pension is a favorite among the cheaper hotels in Kas, Turkey. The facilities are basic and similar to the many other budget hotels in the same neighborhood just overlooking the heart of Kas, but the service and small extras make this a hotel people return to year after year.

Even though it’s one of the cheapest hotels, guests actually get access to the swimming pool at the Hideaway Hotel next door, which can be an incredible bonus during the scorching months of July and August. As long as you are fine with basic accommodations, then the Ates Pension is a great choice and an excellent value.
