This hotel is oozing charm and delightful touches that make your stay memorable. The rooms are quiet, good ensuite,lovely top floor breakfast room, interesting curios perched on every available space. its like staying in a family home- in fact it was his family home before being developed into a guest hotel. Levent Aslan was the perfect host taking time to guide us around the old town and explain the history. His English is sufficient and what we couldn't understand he made every effort to explain in other ways. His german is fluent. He has patient, quiet manner. nothing was too much trouble for him to makeour stay just perfect. He arranged our ongoing tickets and transfers to the bus station and loaned us his own books to understand more of the 7500 years of documented history. Our favorite hotel in Turkey.
Levante is currently restoring another Ottoman house on the rock tomb side of the river it will open at the end of 2012 we had a tour of the new building and it looks fantastic. Recommend the Koenig (kings) room with balcony over the river. Both hotels have individual charm. The new hotel will be called Tesup after an ancient bronze artifact of the wind God.
The old city of AMASYA is small enough to see all main historical sites, the mosques, caravanserii, rock tombs, medrassa and the old asylum that pioneered the therapies to cure the insane and physically afflicted with surgery and treatment itch traditional Turkish music And water therapies. CD's available for 15 Turkish lira of the gentle music. A great buy to ward against mental illness we thought.
