couldn't wait to write this review. the staff & service at the chigdem was perfect. not a single complaint. they drove out to meet us in town because our gps was having issues finding the hotel. carried all our bags from the car to the room. served us tea & cookies at midnight....no charge. they upgraded us from a deluxe room to superior room at no charge. the room was very nice and comfortable. breakfast was outstanding, everything was organic & fresh & healthy & delicious. one staff member walked us down to the bazaar and showed us a few spots around the town. the young boy Fatih was super attentive, he would bring us anything we needed. when it was time to go, we were walked to the car and sent off with smiles and handshakes.
very friendly atmosphere.

We extremely enjoyed our two day visit @ Chigdem Hotel Alacati. The staff were helpful, pleasant, courtesy and warm welcoming atmosphere. Everyone commented how excellent the quality of the food and rooms was...One of the best ever, if not the best Boutique in the world. Highly recommended and we looking forward to book again and again!

Me and my family spent 3 nights at Chigdem Boutique Hotel and the experience has been fantastic. Perfect location, large room and a small swimming pool ideal for the afternoon tea and cakes (delicious).
Staff always available to help (we forgot some clothes in the room and they arranged the shipment to our home country).
Again thanks for this experience. If we'll be back in Turkey we'll come back there for sure.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
About UsCommanding a fine view of Alacati, Chigdem Hotel greets the day with the sunrise. This hotel reflects the peace and nature among the bougainvilles overlooking Alacati's famous windmills. You can start the night sipping wine on the terrace-bar watching the sunset. It was constructed by certified engineer Batacar Baysal who made a surprise and gave his wife's name to the hotel(Çiğdem) and was decorated bytheir daughter-in-law, Gunel Baysal.Crocus FlowerCrocus flower, Colchium in Latin, is originally native to Eurasia. It is plant of woodlands ; blossoming in a variety of colors, standing out to strong winds with its fragile body, reminding us to endure and the power of existence. It has 59 species, 30 of which grow in Turkey. These flowers appear in the late winter often emerging in a colony when hardly a few plants blossom in the meantime. Flower color ranges from yellow, pink and blue, to a vast array of shades.Known as one of the most expensive spices of the world, Saffron is is obtained from the stigmas of of Crocus sativus. It was used to provide with nice odour for the baths by the ancient Grek and Roman. Crocuses have the late-winter/early spring bulbs. They are the first blossoms of spring and autumn. They have a short flowering period and after a two week process they end up with their buds. They survive until the next year by their bulbs storing the nutritives. These are the bulbs sold by the florists. It means you can grow any color of these flowers in your garden.Our hotel took its name from our hostess who took her name from these flowers: CHIGDEM.Special Category HotelSpecial Category hotels contributes to the tourism and are supported by the Ministry of Culture and Tourism.
