“Good hotel on great location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 12, 2013

One of the few hotels on the Egirdir peninsula with it's own lakeside terrace. Swimming and fishing straight from the hotels front door (mind the sparse traffic...). Very good breakfast, clean rooms, helpfull owner.

we travelled during the easter holiday of 2013, this is an off beat time to travel Turkey and majority of the pensions we stayed at we were often the only ones there (which we actually enjoyed as it was peacefull). I had read some nice reviews about this pension and they are all very true.

We arrived somewhat late to the pension as we were driving from Pammukkale, upon arrival we were greated by the owner and showed to our room to see that he had put on the heaters on (it was a bit cold) a very nice touch. as it was the quiet season we went to the pensions restaurant and we had a lovely dinner and time with the owner and a friend.

the next morning we had breaky on the patio area near the lake. it was quiet, we had homemade food (and plenty of it!) and a few dogs around us. it was probably one of our most romantic moments of the holiday.

Visited Egirdir in october 2012, and was left breathless from the beauty and calmness of the small peninsula the pension is located on. The pension's owner, Hussain is very inteligent and knowlegable about surroundings. He speks very good English and some other languages as well. While we spent most of our time in touristy Kemer, it was wery nice to get away from the crowd to see something different than usual Turkish coastal city.
Rooms are not big, but large enough for a couple. Everythig is clean and well kept. The restaurant, located in a separate bulding next to pension has very simple interior, but serves excellent fish and meat. in a good weather you can seat at the tables on the lake shore and enjoy the view.

If you will be driving from the coast teke the road that goes trough national park, not through Esparta. On your way you can enjoy seeing several beatifull mountain lakes and great nature.

The hotel is situated almost at the end of the piece of land of the egirdir peninsula. the rooms are tiny, simply but clean. the best thing is the restaurant of the hotel, with tables along the lake. Maybe too mosquitoes when you turn on the lights while eating!! :)

We were in Turkey in July. Having never been there at the height of the tourist season, where many places are overcrowded and overrun with cruise boat zombies, we altered our plans and left Selcuk early and skipped Goreme altogether. Egirdir and Choo Choo's Pension were among the top two places we visited. Choo Choo's was the best pension/hotel we stayed at. If you want to just relax. swim in the lake walk around a bit in a small Turkish town, or drive to deserted beaches on the lake, this is the place. The room was on the second floor and very nice. Big enough for us and clean. The hosts, a family, were lovely, especially Hussein, who spoke excellent English, but everyone was wonderful. The restaurant they have has terrace seating outside right on the lake for during nice weather. It is a testament to how good the food was that we ate every dinner there. The breakfasts, which come with the room, are the best we had in Turkey and Turkey has the best breakfasts! Everything was fresh and local. Wonderful place, located near the end of the island.

Room Tip: Ask for room facing the lake. No biggie if they don't have on available, but nice.

This is a small family run pension on Lake Egirdir. Property faces the lake and breakfast is served at tables right at the lake. The room was good with two beds, very clean, nice bathroom. We sat in their restaurant downstairs to use the computer as there is not really a place to sit in room. Huseyn is an excellent host and great cook. He prepared us a delicious dinner. The hotel is located on Yesilada point which looks like a resort past it's prime. It was a good stopping off point for our continuing trip further east but would not be a location I would seek out.

We stayed here on the way back from Konya. The room and bathroom were both newly decorated and clean, ours overlooked the lake. All the rooms are named after artists. We arrived in the middle of the afternoon and sat by the lake watching children jumpimg in and out of the lake. We ate a delicious dinner beside the lake. Hussein and his staff were all very charming. We intend to make a return visit to this beautiful part of Turkey.

Room Tip: Overlooking the lake
