There is so much to say about this hotel that may not fit here, and that is coming from someone who almost never ever writes a review, but avidly reads them! The service at this hotel has compelled me to take the time to actually write one. While Mardin in Turkey is beyond important, as the cradle of civilization, it may have not made it on everyone's bucket list BUT it should. The entire town is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. And when in Mardin, you should ABSOLUTELY stay at Mardius Tarihi Konak. Konak is the term used for the old style of manors/mansions in Turkey, and in Mardin these konaks are in the Artuqid architectural style. This hotel is a grand konak and boasts eleven boutique rooms. It has been immaculately restored down to every little detail to its original grandeur. Staying here, feels like you are part and parcel of history, albeit, very luxuriously. Service: The staff and management of the hotel are ALL over and above courteous, helpful, efficient, responsive and responsible. Special thanks to Hızır Bey and Dilber Hanım. The staff stop at nothing to make sure your stay is as comfortable and seamless as possible. It is as if they are reading your mind and jumping ahead to meet your needs before it even formulates in your mind! Ask them for anything... personal needs, private tours, what to see, eat, do, drink etc..... all their recommendations and arrangements for us turned out to be the very best the city had to offer. Rooms: The rooms are of various sizes and named after the family members that once occupied that room. Every one is greeted with an offering of snacks and fruits and the guests are even invited to indulge in the minibar, courtesy of the hotel. Cleanliness: Super clean, spotless. Towels and linens... honestly I have never seen this grade, not at any five star hotel that I have stayed at. I guarantee that you will notice the softness and the thickness of the bath step mat! Food: Breakfast is not only wonderful but doesn't have a set hour where you have to be ushered in and out. Breakfast will be set for you, at the time that you specify and I must say, from the breakfast cream to the butter brought in directly from farm to table, you will have a hard time leaving the breakfast table. Any other dishes on top of the elaborate Turkish breakfast, of course will be made for you at your request, with a smile. Also, they have won a gastronomy award for their culinary expertise. Note local meals for lunch or dinner are made to order for you and your party, based on your food preferences. Location: Central! Mardin is a town of up and down steps, much like Positano. This hotel thank God is located just below the main town mosque/bazaar/main street, so while you have to do the steps, you don't have to do as many and you get to stay in an architecturally gorgeous location which is what people come here to take photos of. Other: The hotel overlooks the Mesopotamian fertile plain and the views are amazing. There is such tranquility and quiet that anyone needing it will appreciate. Huge outdoor space for lounging anytime of day, overlooking the views. Enjoy and Indulge. You will be very happy you did.

How lucky I am that this is a historical mansion that I have stayed in many times over the years. My second home. It offers its guests a unique accommodation experience. In addition to this historical building, you feel like the kings in fairy tales thanks to the hosting of its experienced staff. Its rooms, which are filled with stories, designed based on its 700-year history, provide guests with the opportunity to find peace in the past of Mardin. In addition, The reustorant is full gastronomic stop with its indescribable delicious dishes and service quality. Every minute you spend in this historical mansion, which is easy to reach but difficult to leave, will take you away from the reality of the world and bring you peace in the magnificent view of Mesopotamia.

The Mardius is a time machine that took us back half a millennium to old Turkey, and we will never forget that memorable stay. Driving to the Mardius in the Old City of Mardin from the Mardin airport is like going about 600 years into the past to a time when people lived in houses of stone built into the mountainside overlooking a vast plain stretching across to Syria and the rest of the fertile crescent. Google directed us up an incredibly steep dirt road only to have it rejoin a paved road that we could have reached simply by following well paved roads. So ignore any Google direction to turn off into anything less than a paved two-lane road. But when we did get as far as our rented SUV could take us, we were greeted by a young hotel employee who directed us to park on the edge of a paved alley and follow him up a series of stone steps to the most opulent structure of Mardin's Old City. Today's Mardius was a labor of a love (and millions of dollars) by an old-line Mardin family seeking to restore and modernize a compound that had been the ancestral home to two dozen generations of ancestors. The upper two levels of the three-level compound affords panoramic views of the flat countryside to the south, as well as a partial view of some of a mosque and other structures built into the mountainside above to the north. We were lucky enough to get the central suite on the top third level. With our door open, and with the door of the salon open, we could lie in the king-size bed and gaze down at the lights of the towns dotting the plains. On our first night we also had a highly atmospheric light show courtesy of a thunderstorm, complete with marble-size hailstones. The Mardius's furnishings, fixtures and decor was kept faithful to the fashion of the 17th century while the rooms were electrified and plumbed to today's luxury standards. The result is a rather comfortable time-trip back about 700 years. The second level features a glass-enclosed dining hall that also affords a spectacular view as well as exquisite traditional dishes like those served to the family over the centuries. The Mardius's location at the south-central slope of the Old City affords a pleasant 10-minute, albeit strenuous, climb up stone steps and narrow stone-walled alleys through the local market to the main avenue lined with dozens of restaurants, cafes and shops. When we were there in late May the Old City was bustling with tourists and auto traffic, but our daughter (who had recommended the hotel) said it was quiet when she was there before the tourist season began.

Think I was their first guest in 6 or 7 months due to Covid and I was treated like a Sultan! Amazing welcome, helping me with my car in the terribly narrow and maze-like Mardin streets, performing some financial transactions in Turkish for me, giving me an upgraded room. Wonderful food! The best view possibly in the world (and I've been to 80 countries)! Wonderful people! Overall, one of my greatest hotel finds in all the world. I shall definitely be back...

Mardius Tarihi Konak is a 700 years old stone Mansion with a local architecture of Mardin. The hotel has stunning views of the city. We stayed two nights in this mansion with family. We really enjoyed with our stay. Rooms have all the amenities you need in a hotel. The staff was very helpful. The breakfast was one of the best in Anatolia. WiFi is free. We will return again. Highly recommended.

Spent 1 night here and it was the best experience so far we had. Rooms were amazing (small leakage in toilet though), service was extraordinary (like St Regis standard already), the view was majestic, it was a perfect stay. They arranged a taxi to bring us around for 250 lira. Really loved our stay here and will be back someday

Excellent location, absolute comfort, perfect view and utmost friendly service. Especially the design of the veranda with its unique view of the valley is worth of spending a few hours in a comfortable atmosphere.

We spent three nights at the Mardius hotel which was a good base to explore the region. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay: the hotel is in an historic and recently restored building. The staff are very charming and helpful and run it very well. I would recommend this as the place to stay when in Mardin, and also I should add as foreigners we never once felt at risk in this region .
