We stayed for three nights. The hotel is nicely renovated, and the garden is very attractive and comfortable. The staff went above and beyond to welcome and assist us, and were very kind to our 1.5 year old daughter. We highly recommend it!

Staying for two nights at Gulevi Safranbolu was a great pleasure. Three free-standing traditional Ottoman villas, separated by a variety of stepped terraces and gardens, make up this hotel, which is located centrally in the old town. The adaption and conversion of the villas has been carried out with the best taste, and my room was a real joy to... More

This is one of the best hotels I ever "visited". It is like a museum where you can stay in 200 years old beautiful conserved buildings with all modern comfort a traveler can dream of. Even J.S. Bach was there as we could taste his music;

I was there off-season, meaning May and during the week. Welcoming and caring stuff made me feel comfortable and warm in an nearly empty hotel. Wanted to stay one night, stayed two. Five stars, points, smiling faces - whatever. Liked it!

Our stay at Gulevi was a dream. The houses and garden area are incredibly beautiful and perfectly reflect the character of Safranbolu. The staff is incredibly attentive and accommodating. The breakfast is divine!

We loved our stay at Gulevi. The hotel is beautifully restored inside and out. Our family room was spacious with two large rooms and large bath. The rooms had many windows which provided considerable natural light. The decor was beautiful, couches comfortable to relax on-only wish we could have stayed longer! The grounds and room are quiet. There are many... More

This Hotel is a fantastic place in perfect location to visit Safranbolu. The guarded car park is right next to the hotel. The rooms are beautiful decorated and having a drink in the early evening in the beautiful garden is a must. The management is giving the feeling of being very welcomed. The breakfast is also a nice experience itself,... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Gülevi Safranbolu emerged as a project of living through revitalization rather than one of accommodation. The project was initiated to survive the richness and subtlety of life which flourished during the 18th century in Safranbolu which is currently inscribed in the UNESCO World Heritage List. Gül and İbrahim Canbulat acquired three neighboring Ottoman mansions in the early 2000s and started running these buildings following restoration. All three mansions date back to the 18th century. Damage and wear due to time and human intervention were recovered by the restoration process; the mansions were granted their genuine architectonics. Modern facilities required for the present-day functions of these mansions were installed without distorting the authentic integrity of the Ottoman mansion. Gülevi Safranbolu offers 18th-century elegant life style with no compromise on contemporary appliances. ... more   less
