Where to Stay in Turkey

If you are visiting Turkey for the first time, you have a great treat in store for you!  Turkey is one of the best countries to visit to see the most remarkable blending of ancient and modern, and with over 8000 hotels in Turkey, you can rest assured that you will be able to find the accommodation in Turkey to suit your personal preferences and budget. 

For many people Istanbul will be the entry point to Turkey, and what a place to start your exploration of this fascinating country!  Istanbul is home to some of the best hotels in Turkey and here you can find every kind of Turkey accommodation from luxury hotels to bed and breakfast or cheap hostels in Turkey, and every other kind of accommodation between these two extremes.  If you are travelling with a family, or staying for a longer period, you should consider renting one of the many apartments in Turkey, where you have the option to save money by self-catering.

Beyond Istanbul – Exploring Antiquity in Turkey

Visitors who are interested in Ancient History and historic ruins will be in their element in Turkey.  There are several places where you can see ancient relics in Turkey, but one of the best places in the world to see ruins of an entire Greek city dating back to 6 thousand BC is Ephesus, near the port of Kusadasi and the village of Selcuk. Since this little town is visited by many thousands of tourists every year there is quite a wide range of Turkey accommodation to be found here, mostly in the popular mid-range. 

For example, Urkmez Hotel is one of the cheap hotels in Turkey, with just 3 stars, but gets rave reviews from past guests.  Another cheap hotel is Efes Antik Hotel, and if you fancy a bit of luxury you can choose from one of the 4-star Turkey hotels such as Markiz Konaklari Boutique Hotel or Gullu Konaklari, two of the most popular.

Luxury Hotels and Resort on the Turkish Riviera

Turkey has a long and exceptionally beautiful coastline dotted with some of the best resorts in Turkey, many of which offer inexpensive package deals for visitors which include full board, water-sports and in many cases, great golf.  Belek is the most popular area for a combined Golf and Beach holiday and boasts no less than 58 5-Star luxury hotels in Turkey, while Fethiye has superb beaches and crystal-clear water, and in Cesme you will find kilometres of snow-while beaches and dozens of fabulous natural fountains. 

If you plan to visit Belek have a look at the Kempinski Hotel and Golf Resort, the Gloria Golf Resort and the sumptuous Mardan Palace.  If you prefer the privacy of villas or apartments in Turkey, have a look at the Belek Golf Apartments, Tolerance Villas or Novron Feronia Villas which could be a cost-effective option for groups and families.  There is not a great deal of really cheap accommodation in Turkey at Belek, but even the better resorts are inexpensive compared to other European beach/golf destinations. 

In Fethiye there is a very wide choice of accommodation in all price categories including luxury, budget and even really cheap hostels.  Browse online now for great Turkey hotel deals and plan your ultimate holiday, and decide where to stay in Turkey.
