We arrived in Sanliurfa at night from Istanbul by plane and no hotel booking. So we walked along the main street of Ataturk Avenue.
For the first time in my several trips to Turkey I felt strange in this place, I felt weird, getting a negative vibe of the people. So when I saw the neon sign of Kilim Hotel from the distance on top of a building, we immediately walked our way there. We spoke to the boy - who works there - and he speaks a little English so that would be helpful.
The price was reasonable at TL 70 with breakfast, so we settled for it.
They gave us a room on an upper floor facing the back, good because it’s quiet compared to the rooms facing the main street. Surprisingly clean room though the beds are small, the bathroom is also neat with shampoos and small soaps, hairdryer, clean white towels. TV, aircon, enough space to move, two chairs and tables, windows overlooking some abandoned buildings and the city. The floor has clean red carpet, I stepped on bare feet most of the time.
Lots of hotels are located almost beside each other in this area like Arte Hotel - on the other side of the road, Hotel Guven, Ipek Pasha Hotel, and Harran Hotel.
Breakfast is ok and the breakfast hall is big located on the top floor with a view of the city. Wifi is free.
The location is good about 15 minutes walk to the Cave of Abraham and the pools with thousands of fish.
The staff albeit very limited english are very eager to help, esp. the youngest staff who looks like an underage boy.
This is a good budget option, i recommend it.
The upper floors and the ones at the back side if you're a light sleeper.
