Derivsh Otel is 5 minutes' walk to Mevlana Museum and 15 minutes' walk to Mevlana Culture Centre.
More importantly, the sincere service won us over. The Dervish Otel hospitality started even before we arrived in Turkey. Muammer replied to our reservation and subsequent queries very promptly, and was very helpful. A day before we arrived, we were informed that we would be upgraded to a bigger room for free.
We arrived at night after driving from Cappadocia to find a beautifully furnished (and very warm - crucial on a cold winter's night) mansion. There is also a "no shoe" policy which keeps the place spick and span. No dirty and dusty carpets in this hotel!
Muammer's colleague (whose name we did not get, unfortunately), made an awesome restaurant recommendation. When we returned to the hotel at about 10pm, we had a great time chit-chatting with Muammer over freshly squeezed orange juice.
Our room was tastefully done up and spacious. The huge bathroom was fitted with Groehe shower and Duravit WC. There was even a radiator in the bathroom (only one we came across in Turkey so far).
As a parting gift, Muammer's colleague gave us an adaptor which we had borrowed from the hotel the night before. His kind gesture helped us tremendously for the rest of our stay in Turkey. After we left, we also received an email from Muammer who had knocked off before we checked out.
We definitely recommend this to anyone who is staying overnight in Konya. In fact, we are still wishing that we have stayed for at least another night!
