We pre-booked 2 nights here but after leaving our previous hotel earlier than expected we found ourselves very lucky to be able to get in at Rasitler 1 night early. As we arrived we were greeted by a man striding towards us with a big smile and his hand extended in greeting. "You have made it - welcome". This turned out to be Erhan & offering just what we were looking for - genuine hospitality. Umran met us inside with an equally warm greeting & freshly baked cake & tea. This is how our stay continued. Erhan & Umran made us feel so welcome & relaxed in their home - it was like visiting long time friends. It is a beautiful old home with equally beautiful gardens.
We had the small room & whilst it was a little tight it was extremely comfortable with what appeared to be a brand new bathroom - all very tastefully decorated.
Umran is a wonderful cook. The breakfasts were huge & tasty. We were also fortunate to have her cook dinner for us 1 night.
Erhan, Umram & their charming staff, Bahatin & Nerimen, made our stay the most pleasant possible. If you are looking for genuine hospitality in a wonderful setting, close to but out of the real touristy part of town, then this is perfect. Very highly recommended.
