This place is the best, and Sandra is a most gracious and awesome hostess! No words do justice to how great Golden Bed Pension is. It is a hidden treasure that all should seek to find.

Right now we decided to go back and stay in Golden Bed on the first week of March 2006. This place meant much more than a pension for us during the 9 day we stayed there. Thats kind of our mecca and we go back for a long pilgrimage again this coming march. Owners and hosts were just wonderfully kind and nice, the view, the rooftop bar and restaurant was great in the morning when we had the breakfast, but so homey and wonderful in the evening or night time. Yesss we will be back there when spring blossoms live memories, plants and people , again. wow, ... We are going to cook persian rice with zafran in that kitchen again, walk that hill up and down to the Golden Bed and Beautiful Kushadasi shopping centrum ... wow ...

Anzac Golden Bed Pension is located in an excellent location. It is close to everything such as restaurants, shops and the ferries. The atmosphere is a home away from home and is more like staying with friends. Nothing is too much trouble for the staff. The courtesy bus to Ephesus is so convenient. The rooms are not enormous but they are exceptionally clean and the towels are luxurious. I could recommend this pension to anyone wanting a small pension but not the usual 5 star rating of large impersonal hotels. Oscar does a good Turkish breakfast.
We stayed here longer than planned. We ended up staying for almost a week when we had originally thought of it as "a day or two stopover" because the hosts were so great, the rooms clean, the Turkish breakfast delicious, and the rooftop eating and relaxing area and view were so great. We hadn't booked ahead, we just arrived at the Kushadasi bus station and as we normally did while travelling, started asking other backpackers for suggestions. The Golden Bed was a true find. Our family of four (including two children) had been backpacking around the world for 10 months by this time and we were getting tired of travelling (who would have thought?) and havens like The Golden Bed helped us regain our energy and enthusiasm for being on the road. You can't find a better place to stay.
