Our guide on where to stay in Turkey

As you’d expect of such a varied and multi-faceted destination, Turkey has a wide variety of attractive accommodation on offer. Hotel-style varies from simple ‘pensions’ and family-run guesthouses to luxurious resort hotels. Unique accommodation choices include the memorable cave hotels of Cappadocia, and charter ‘gulet’ cruises offered all along the Turquoise Coast. 

Istanbul is a huge city offering a fascinating mix of old and new and as such houses the complete array of accommodation choices. The city’s most luxurious hotels are located along the banks of the Bosphorus in the city’s modern Besiktas district – our favorites here being the Swissotel, or legendary Ciragan Palace Kempinski, set within a former Ottoman palace. Moderately priced but no less comfortable options can also be found in the historic Karakoy neighborhood or the European quarter of Beyoglu. 

Accommodation in Cappadocia is as memorable as the fairy caves themselves. Central town Goreme houses numerous ‘cave’ hotels, with your stay literally carved out of the sheer rock face. Remarkably these hotels range from the simple to the opulent, with properties such as the Argos, Yunak Houses, and Kayakapi Premium offering a full-service stay with swimming pools, wine cellars, spas, and verdant gardens. 

Turkey’s widest selection of hotels is offered along its majestic coast, with family-friendly resorts, boutique boltholes, and simple pensions on offer whether you’re in busy Bodrum, idyllic Izmir, or characterful Kas. Our favorites include the luxurious and highly romantic Marmara Bodrum, or the Alavya Alacati set in a picturesque hilltop village high above the coast.

As a true foodie and culture vulture at heart, Spain, Portugal and Turkey are special destinations to me. I love creating unique itineraries which combine food, wine, culture, and really immersive experiences which I’m passionate about.
