Athena Pension is terrific in every way. The rooms are beautiful and spotless. The staff are some of the kindest people we have met in Turkey (and that is saying something). The breakfast was terrific, and was a perfect way to start a day. The owner has remodeled the building himself to its original Ottoman state, and he is happy... More

Athena Pension was everything we hoped for and more. It is off the beaten path and rushing tourist groups. It is an ideal choice if you are looking for a peaceful and authentic couple of days. Aydin and Melek were amazing hosts with a lot of insight to the town and its culunary gems. The estate is beautiful with a... More

Athena Pension in Bergama was tucked behind old buildings. We reached there quite late in the evening after a long drive from Bodrum. As we called ahead, the proprietor Mr Aydin ordered dinner for us. Lovely. The property is more than 200 years old. it was well maintained. a peach tree sat by the kitchen/dining area was full of ripe... More

My wife and I have visited Bergama twice in the last two years and on both occasions we stayed at Athena Pension. Aydin is a gracious and generous host, his Pension is a beautifully and genuinely restored Ottoman Hotel. The images posted tell the truth, the gardens are green and relaxed, an oasis in the middle of the Old Town.... More

This is definitely the best place we have ever stayed. The rooms were very comfortable and well thought out (like a light switch which you can switch from your bed!), and the whole place was very clean. I especially loved the courtyard and the extra breakfast/hang out room with books, places to sit, and a wood fire. The host and... More

The Athena Pension really felt like an oasis, tucked away on a quiet side street in Bergama. And it definitely wins the award for best breakfast in Turkey during our recent trip. Aydin is a friendly and generous host, and Melik makes wonderful cakes and savoury pastries, and ensures that guests are happy. Our room was clean and bright, with... More

If your are looking for a place with a lot of heart that will have you feeling like a local in a couple of days this is the place for you. What this B&B lacks in sophistication it more than makes up for in heart. The garden is great. The hammock inspires lazy moods, this is the kind of place... More

What a beautiful family run place at the base of Pergamon. The rooms were spacious and clean. Angel was so lovely and helpful. The cats were a bonus for our son to play with. The garden was a beautiful oasis in which to sit and watch the sunset over Pergamon with a glass of wine. What a treat to be... More

This small pension offers an interesting selection of rooms, and we chose the loft room that could easily sleep 5. The small but modern bathroom was clean, as was the entire property. Best of all, we could sit in the large back garden with friendly family members and other guests while enjoying the weather and some tea. The location was... More

This hostel was beautiful and right in the heart of Pergamum! The owner made us delicious Turkish breakfast everyday. They restored an old home and it had so much character and charm! Views of the ruins out of our bedroom. This is great for social people as you had communal breakfast. Great for couples, solo travelers or groups. Easy access... More
