We came from 'cirale' and got the tip to stay at Lale Pension and what a nice friendly welcom we got. As if you're one of the family. The room was super spacious, clean and with a great view on the lake. For breakfast and diner we had to go to the other pension, one block down the road, 2... More

Just stayed at Lale Hostel on a birding trip in Turkey.The hostel is great, & birding was also really good, & all within walking distance! The mountain at the back of the town is amazing-habitat ranging from plateau to scrub to cliffs & large oak woodland. I saw everything I had hoped for.Warblers included Ruppells,Bonellis &Orphean, Cretchmars buntings were common,masses... More

We had one night here on aself drive tour but would have stayed longer if we had not made plans for the next day. The hotel is easy to find in the old part of Egirdir over looking the lake and the harbour. nervous drivers may want to park by the harbour and take the short walk up hill to... More

This was our first trip to Turkey and we stayed, eating each night, at Lale Pension, in Egidir, a 2 hour bus ride from Antalya on the coast. I loved looking across the lake and down on the little town, with its historic mosque, baths and harbour, and the snow topped mountain freshness of it all. The Pension is ideally... More

This was a stopover and we arrived quite late but the owners were able to make us a meal (normally you are supposed to order in the afternoon as it's family-run and not a restaurant). They were helpful, and provided suggestions of places to see on our drive to Cappadocia. They also gave us an unexpected 10% discount on everything... More

This is a great place to stay and enjoy Turkey away from the tourist coast. During our vacation in Turkey, visiting hot spots like Istanbul, the south coast and Capadoccia, we de decided to do something diferent and go to Egirdir. It was definitely an excelent decisión. Just after arriving, the owner Ibrahim picked us up at the bus station... More

This hostel was very charming. The price was good, the location was great. But best of all were the hosts - they spent hours talking to us and were highly entertaining. They helped us book our onwards travel which was a big relief for us. The rooms were not fancy, but comfortable and good value. Would recommend this to others.

Egidir is a great place. Some tourism, but still very authentic, and the same is true for Lale pansion. Ibrahim, the owner, can arrange everything for you, but he is still very friendly. The room was small but clean. The food was very good. If you plan a walking trip on the St. Pauls trail ask Ibrahim for some advicese.
