It is a clumsy historic edifice that has been transformed into an hotel but the facilities, amenities, comfort and elegance pertaining to what it shall be are lacking. However in non summer peak and with the traveller's intention to be humorous, philosophical and accepting rather than condescending it can be a fruitful experience in that remote south-eastern location which can...

Staying a night in this converted caravanserai was a memorable experience - but certainly not for the comfort of the rooms. The plus side: There were THREE weddings in the hotel the night we stayed there. It was a great opportunity to compare and contrast the various celebrations - and to watch from the 1st floor balcony outside our room.... More

We stayed here with an organised tour through southeastern Turkey. While the building was beautiful, the rest of our stay was substandard and I would recommend having a drink to experience the atmosphere but but not staying here -- better to get a decent night's sleep. Rooms were really very poor, dated, dark, and not functional. Windows do not open.... More

It is a historic building, but the decor is tattered 1940s, maybe 1960s. This would be fine if one didn't feel scammed into an absolutely outrageous price. We were quoted 300 TL for a luxury suite. The only alternative we were shown was a cramped twin bed number, very monastic. We negotiated through 'Montana' (see other reviews for descriptions of... More

An experience. An old caranserai converted into a large and rambling hotel. The room was short of a good window, and was very hot. It was simply furnished which is no bad thing, and fortunately the noisy Wedding feast by the pool finished by midnight. The A/C was rather ineffective. Very pleasant courtyard where a good breakfast was served, and... More

Corner rooms have sitting room and bedroom. You stay here for the history, not the five star facilities. Adequate but quirky shower room, buffet breakfast OK, staff helpful when they are not busy with wedding parties. Stayed one night as part of a tour (with easternturkeytours.org, by the way, excellent tour)

My wife and I stayed a night in this hotel in May 2013. It was a wonderful experience and a sense of humour does not go astray. It is a unique establishment but don't expect 5 star treatment. We would have been disappointed if we could not have stayed there. We did witness a Kurdish wedding whilst in residence and... More

The kervansaray is a unique location. It is very nice to sit on the seats outside your room and just enjoy the surrounding. This is what you should enjoy and go for to this hotel as the rooms are rather simple and the service is not as you will get in other hotels in this city for the same price.... More

We stayed here for 2 nights and could not wait to get out of the place because we felt so insecure. The hotel itself looks very good, is in a beautiful setting but has tired rooms especially the bathrooms. It seems to be run more as wedding venue than a hotel. The restaurant is terrible - we only had a... More

The location is just not good. It is not centrally located, and a high percentage of the guests get pickpocketed walking into town. We were lucky, but we were extraordinarily vigilant. Virtually everyone we passed in the 15 minute walk into town reminded us how dangerous that street is, which made the stay a little nerve-racking. Our friends who arrived... More
