Love this stylish hotel, and I'm afraid I have to say I love the charming boss also, they make this wall hotel gracious, cute and warm. Great garden, good breakfast. After 5 days Turkish coffee trips, we enjoy their fresh filter coffee so much.

We stayed one weekend in March. Hotel is very well located in the heart of the old city with parking lot opposite the hotel. Everything was in walking distance. Hotel staff is great and took care of us very well. Rooms really felt like you are in an old building and that was great too!

I wanted to find out what it was like to stay in one of Safranbolu's distinctive Ottoman houses and Gulevi did not disappoint. My room was a period gem but with a modern luxury bathroom and the breakfast was a feast. One to come back to.

We had an amazing three nights at Gulevi during our honeymoon in Turkey! The rooms are absolutely beautiful. The family who owns the hotel is really sweet and full of excellent recommendations for what to do around Safranbolu. The staff was also very kind and helpful. And the breakfast was awesome!

The entrance to Gul Evi is unprepossessing and we wondered whether the taxi had brought us to the right place. But beyond the screened door on the cobbled street are beautifully restored Ottoman houses and spacious, tranquil gardens. We arrived at night and on a warm evening, people were enjoying the candlelit gardens. We were hosted magnificently at Gulevi. The... More

The main house I stayed in has been modernised where necessary for comfort, ie the ensuites but apart from that it still has a very authentic and... More

Three of us stayed in October 2013. The best hotel we stayed in in Turkey. It consists of three Ottoman houses lovingly gutted and refurbished by an award-winning Istanbul architect who, along with his wife, is the innkeeper. Gül says that even though the house is named for her (translation of Gül Evi is Gül's house), it is her husband... More

This hotel is in a very central location and has a car park which is conveniently located just across the road. The rooms are in a very good condition. The standard breakfast is a little boring but you can ask the staff and they will be happy to prepare other things. There is normal squeaking of the wooden floors if... 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
