This Hotel has a ‘comfy” feel to it. Excellent caring staff, nice smelling linens,quirky rooms and good air conditioning. Contrary to advertising , there is no working pool. Very central and good value. Well recommended !

Lovely ruins (and a great place to eat). The Refractory is the venue for the annual classical music festival and other concerts. Easily accessible and well worth a bit of history!

Beautiful ruin of a Monastery, would love to own it and make it habitable. Would be great for any event like a wedding.

Worth the drive just for the views! Gift shops, cafe bars and restaurants are all quirky and not too expensive. View from Kybele restaurant whilst sipping a cold beer is not to be missed!

Beautifully picturesque! Worth a visit, slightly disappointed that they have two separate prices .. if you speak Turkish it is 7TL, if not 9TL ... not cool! It’s the principle! 😡 Shame on you
