Accommodation

 

Galata Anemone Hotel İstanbul

Anemon Galata Hotel serves in a building with a second degree historical monument status which is restored to its authentic state. Especially the ceiling decorations at the rooms are worth seeing. The hotel is conveniently located right next to Galata Tower, at a walking distance from İstiklal Street, with a clear view of historical sites like the Spice Market, Topkapı Palace and St. Sophia. The hotel features a restaurant, bar and wine boutique, non-smoking rooms, LED TV, free of charge tea and coffee, iron/ironing board at the rooms, free of charge safe box at the rooms.

Taşkonaklar Boutique Hotel Capadoccia

Taskonaklar was built in respect with this nature and history. Every stone, every arch, every old chimney was preserved while Taskonaklar was brought to life. That’s why not one room is similar to another and each room has its own character, where simplicity is blended with comfort. Each room is equipped with free wireless, TV with satellite receiver, free safe, minibar, complimentary tea and coffee facilities, hairdryers, complimentary toiletries, and daily maid service.

Nişanyan Hotel Ephesus Area

Nisanyan House is considered one of Turkey’s finest hotels, yet it is a simple and friendly sort of place. It offers you beauty and peace, even a certain degree of elegance. The grounds are extensive, but they make you feel you own the place by yourself. Set in a remote rural village, it is only ten minutes from Ephesus, one of Turkey’s top tourist destinations. It probably serves the best food within 100 miles, though you’d think it is mom and pop cooking. It has the most intricately detailed decor of any hotel in the country, yet it all feels perfectly spontaneous and casual.
