I arranged my trip to Konya through a travel agency in Istanbul, and I was pleased with the election. Location is extremely convenient because of the view from the terrace where breakfast is served. The hotel is also at a walking distance from Sultan Aladin hill, St. Paul's church, the local bazaar in which every aisle is devoted to a... More

Positives: Breakfast was nice. Room was decent enough. Room was clean. Room has some kind of sound isolation. It is next to Mevlana square if you want to go sightseeing. Restaurant is at the 4th floor so you can enjoy some Konya view while eating. Negatives: Room has some kind of sound isolation but windows don't so there can be... More

This hotel is very convenient to Rumi's Tomb, a number of Mosques and shops. The staff are very nice and helpful. The room we had was small and the bathroom was tiny. The rooms are tired and in need of refurbishment. That said, I would stay here again because the location is so good. There is no room safe. There... More

This hotel was very convenient to visit the Mevlana museum / tomb as it is just across the street corner. We got a largish triple-bedded room as we were 3 but the view from the room was not godd. Good variety at the breakfast buffet but the dinner was average. Although we had a sunny day looking around the Mevlana... More

The best thing about this hotel was the location-- great for walking around the city. There were very few people there when we were there (the place was empty) so the breakfast buffet was really lacking, but otherwise it was a fine place to spend the night.

We wanted to stay at Balikcilar to be close to Mevlana and to have a good base for walking around Konya for two days. Very good hotel, good standard of amenities and adequate breakfast. The big pluses were friendly staff and being almost next door to Mevlana and Selimiye. Will re-vist one day.

We loved this hotel...it was like a step back in time in a good way. Perhaps a hotel Bogart and Greenstreet might have frequented. We were greeted with Turkish tea on arrival, always a nice touch. The interesting Mevlana Museum is across the street and a must-see in Konya. The room was similar to a yacht's cabin...small, tight, nicely appointed... More

Very friendly staff... Pretty hotel. I don't know why, but those photos that I see on this website are not good enough compared to what I saw on my own eyes... Unfortunely I didn't take photos so I can't upload them. And if you want to hear a prayer very late then you will surely get what you want sleeping... More
