“Excellent position”
Reviewed October 5, 2012

This is a nice smallish hotel in a fantastic position overlooking the Mevlani museum and within walking distance of the main sites in Konya. The terrace restaurant is lovely and the staff very helpful. We were upgraded to a suite room and if you are staying for more than a night or two it is worth getting the extra space

Room Tip: Suite rooms are worth asking for for the sitting room and large bath

This hotel stay was special. We have direct views of the museum/tomb

The staff were very helpful and i think we would try to stay here again if we came back. We opted for the suite which was a little more and it was worth it as the rooms are not that big.

Room service was very good.

Room Tip: ask for view of tomb

The best thinkg about the hotel is the location,at 50 metres from the Mevlana museum. All (not so many indeed) attractions are at walk distance and there is a parking right in front of the hotel - very confortable.
Nice view from the terrasse during the morning breakfast. Staff speaking english.
The room was clean but the room and the bed linen smelled of smoke. Unfortunately this is common in many hotels in Turkey. When we left, the day after, we felt like we were having the same smell on us.
The breakfast is poor, though the view is very nice.

The hotel was fine with a nice location. The biggest problem was that the air condition in our room didn't work. They didn't have any other rooms, so we were stuck there. Couldn't sleep all night.

The breakfast was nice, and the restaurant was overlooking the park. Great view. The staff was friendly.

The hotel is located across from the Rumi museum. We walked around at night and found shops and resteraunts nearby. The room next door must have had smokers as we could smell smoke all night. The included breakfast was very good. The room was clean and spacious it was just the smell of smoke that put us off.

Smart and very convenient for Mevlana Museum. Excellent restaurant across the street (Mevlasi Sofrasi). Staff very friendly and helpful. Room comfortably if unexciting. Breakfast – a good spread but the bread was stale.

The signature building of Hotel Rumi can not be missed. A blue building within 2 minutes walk to the Mevlana museum.
Travellers using public transport please note that the bus station is approx 15km out of the city, a 30 minute tram ride. The tram station is by Aladdin hill, which is a good 10-15 minute walk down the main street of Konya.
As previous reviews have said, this is a relatively new simple hotel. It has all the facilities in a room that would be required. No problems with heating, hot water or cleanliness. I wouldn't say the room is small, as it is run like a hotel and not B&B, but not too much room to move, or sit to watch TV besides the bed.
Reception was helpful and provided us with a warm greeting.
I can't comment on the breakfast as we missed out on their service.
Overall, a good valued and well located hotel for the museum.
